Well updated mid-century Route 66 motel. Plenty of light and outlets. Fresh interior. Small fridge and microwave. Nicely re-done bathroom. 2 beds OK. Friendly and helpful staff. Greeted by a cat in the office. Rubber Ducky on the tub. Pumpkin muffins were breakfast.

Our absolute favorite place to stay. Love stepping back in time at the Sunset, where your greeted by the owners of the motel. Bed are comfortable it’s quiet but the charm is something we need more of. We often say on our stays at other es “Boy there's just not pride of ownership anymore, the floors are filthy, this place needs some love and attention…why can’t they all be like the Sunset Motel, clean quiet and a wonderful place to stay.”

The property was nice. Beds and pillows were comfortable. Room was very clean. However, New Mexico is still behind the neighboring states, as far as post-covid business recovery, in that most of the restaurants didn't have inside dining. Drive-thru only. Will avoid staying in NM until they open up! Sunset Motel was a Great stay, tho. We liked it.
