"one night stay only"
no hot water after 5 minutes in a shower....if there is more than one person - get in the shower first.....cigarette ashes on the bed stand in a non smoking room and the smell of cigarette deep into the room...front desk person didn't really care either...overall I'm not a needy person when it comes to a hotel/motel room but this was well below....great […] location thought Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quality meets the price"
This is a very reasonably priced motel and you get what you pay for. The bed was comfortable, the TV worked fine, the staff are friendly, but I was disappointed in the cleanliness of the bathroom. Towels were skimpy, as was the hot water. WiFi didn't work in the room, but worked in the office area. It's fine if you just need a room to sleep in and don't […] want to pay a lot and aren't too squeamish about a hair on the sink. I would go there again and would recommend it to a friend if they know what they're getting. Breakfast was cold cereal and English muffins--fine to stave off hunger, but not what you're choosing this motel for. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I've stayed here a few times before and it has been totally fine. It is one of the least expensive places in the area so I don't have high expectations but this time was not a good stay. The main issue was that we didn't have a hot shower for 3 days! One day there was enough *warm* water to get the soap off before the water turned very cold. The breakfast […] was pretty bad - there was very little or somtimes no coffee, there used to be a waffle maker but that wasn't working either- just some english muffins and the same old muffins in a bulk plastic container probably from costco or something. Also, our room was never cleaned. They said it can only be cleaned at 7am while we are asleep. Strange. On a positive note - At least the place is clean, the river view is pretty the bed and linens are comfortable. It is a close drive to the Dartmouth campus and quiet, especially on the river side.

"Clean but smelly Motel near Dartmouth"
Pros: close to Dartmouth and relatively inexpensive, $70/night; room appears clean and tidy; Cons: Non-smoking room with strong smoke smell inside (I spoke with the manager, she claimed that some guests smoke outside and the smoke went inside; ; electric heating makes loud noise, hard to sleep with that noise; toilet dirty; shower lacks sufficient hot […] water.

"Cold shower, hard bed, sticky rug, enough said"
Cold shower, hard lumpy bed, entire rug felt sticky and years worthof dust around edges on floors.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The price is right"
62.00 is as cheap as it gets. Clean, great internet, but would say not family friendly. Good for single/couple for 1-2 day stay. Would stay again. Late on breakfast and coffe cold. Def a no frills type of place. Close to restaurants and interstate.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pleasing on a budget"
A very nice experience. Small, down to earth with modest expectations this was a pleasant stay while I was at the King Arthur Baking Education Center for some delicious baking experience. Continental breakfast has real English muffins as well as a small variety of other breakfast items. The front desk person was accommodating and helpful. The WIFI was […] fast and the room was warm ( it was 19 degrees this morning). This isn't the Marriott or Hyatt and these were not those kinds of prices. Worked great as a place to stay for the weekend after 8 hours on the road. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean! No Frills, Inexpensive."
I don't know what everyone else on here is complaining about. I go to Hanover/Lebanon a few times a year to visit friends and stay at Sunset. It's always clean (surprised how clean the bathrooms are compared to most motels), comfortable, and inexpensive. I think most people here have misguided expectations, thinking they'll be getting a Ritz VIP experience […] for $70 bucks a night. Come on! I give Sunset 5 stars for what it is - a simple, no frills motel for 1-2 night stays. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I guess for a 2-star hotel it was OK, but I was very disappointed to not be able to have a hot shower. Water was tepid at best. I don't plan to stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to Hanover"
Room was clean and simple, view of the Connecticut river was fantastic. Pay the extra $10 for the rooms with the view.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Terrible service; I was greeted poorly by the front desk staff. When asked for a refund after seeing that the room was not up to par, they promptly shooed me away. Do yourselves a favor, and spend the extra $ staying at the Courtyard--the improved service is worth it alone. Be weary of this place!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Passable but not pleasurable"
Good points -- the room and the bathroom were quite clean. No complaints there. But I found this roadside motel lacking, particularly for the price paid. I can overlook things like the sag in the bathroom floor near the shower -- it's an old hotel and to fix that kind of thing would cost a lot. But the most minor of amenities would have really helped […] improve our experience, like better sheets (ours were scratchy) and towels (ours were tiny). The soap dispenser in the bathroom shower was empty, and the first time we entered our room (after dark, which occurs at 5pm) the light switch didn't work because the lamps had been manually turned off. I had to fumble around to turn one on. We did get maid service, and it was done well, but the tag was left on the door outside after the service was complete... this after the proprietor fully explained to us how to use it (it works just like it does at every hotel you've ever been to. Stick the tag out on the door if you want service). It's the little things that make or break a place, and I'm sorry to say I don't think I would stay here again.

"Nice and quaint"
This was just what I wanted. Cheap, personal, comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was very upsetting. We did not have hot water in the shower, which incidentally was the size of a telephone booth. We did not have adequate heating, even when the thermostat was set higher. Generally run-down, the bathroom had an unpleasant smell. The two-star rating is far too generous, definitely misleading and not worth the money. NOT AT ALL […] SATISFIED.

"Inexpensive and convenient"
I was traveling for an interview at Dartmouth, and the hotels in Hanover were far outside of my price range. The Sunset Motor Inn was relatively inexpensive and located right on the bus route between West Lebanon and Hanover. My room was small, but it suited my needs as a lone traveler. Although the hotel seemed worn, I was pleased by its cleanliness. […] The man at the front desk was very pleasant and friendly. Check-in and check-out were a breeze. The breakfast spread was nice. I also loved having a gorgeous view of the water out my back window! I would definitely recommend the Sunset Motor Inn to a friend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect choice for an overnight"
We needed a room closed to the hospital and liked the looks of this one. We stayed in the King room with river view. Everything was new, clean and very comfortable. The river view was awesome.Well worth the price. Definately going back. We had to be at the hospital too early to try the breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hunters blasting away at 6 am was a bit of a suprise. The owner claiming he did not here them and pretending this was something new is difficult to believe. After being woken up at that hour one might have expected the coffee to be ready but that was not the case.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value, convenient to Dartmouth"
Found this aging but comfortable motel an excellent value, easy drive from Dartmouth, nice location along the river. If you don't need 'extra' amenities, it's a good place to sleep (quiet, in the woods, nothing fancy). We'd go back, particularly if most of your time is spent on campus.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet, clean, nice views"
The room was affordable and had a nice view of the river. Basic amenities included internet, tv, iron and ironing board. Close to Dartmouth Hitchcock.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Lovely place to stay"
It was a lovely place to stay. Newly remodeled, clean and a wonderful view. But the manager was rude, inconsiderate. He would clean the parking lot, with a rake, at 730am.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Close to Dartmouth. Nice nice nice nice. Once upon a time in America there lived a litted baby named BoBoGenuine Expedia guest review
When I viewed the motel online, it appeared to be cozy and clean. Upon entering the room after checking in (at 6:40 p.m) however, it had not been cleaned and the beds were unmade. I was given the room next to this and it wasn't much better. Although the beds were made, there was toothpaste in the sink and the bathroom was grimy. The metal toilet paper […] holder (which also had a roll of toilet paper that was just about empty) had finger prints & grime as did the stainless steel faucet - it had never been cleaned. The toilet bowl lid did not have a "sanitized" strip across it. The 2 hand towels had stains on them. When I approached the owner about it, he seemed annoyed that I was complaining! I paid $99 plus tax for one night and it was a total waste of money. If I visit this area again, I will pay an extra $25 or so to feel comfortable in a clean room.

"Economical place close to Hanover"
Location (on a lake shore close to Hanover) cannot be beat for the price. Hotel was adequate. Slept well. rooms were dark and bathroom was small, but everything worked.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Entirely adequate; I would stay there again."
This is an old roadside motel that is located just two miles from the center of Hanover backed up on the Connecticut River. The rooms are old but clean and comfortable. It had a good shower but the hot water temperature fluctuated -- but not all the way to cold. The floor in front of the shower had caved from past water rot but had been shored up so […] felt solid. The wi-fi was fast enough -- better than at several higher priced establishments. Fridge and microwave in the room but no coffee. Breakfast looked average or better -- we did not partake because of other breakfast commitments. Owner/manager was helpful -- he waited up for us until 2am after our flight was delayed. The motel is in a forest and the view of the river to the back is outstanding. The units have no exits to the side facing the river but one can walk around to the various chairs facing the river to enjoy the view. There is some road noise because of relatively small setback from the road. All in all, especially considering the price, we would be happy to stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nothing in immediate area"
For the money and this time of year it was okay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
There were so many dirty things in the room...mirror, bathroom wallpaper, lamps...and the water never got hot in the shower. The place is a bit rundown, and nobody seemed to be around when there was a problem with the waffle maker at breakfast. They just don't get it about customer service. It's way out of town down a dark road.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Looks aren't everything!"
Overall, this was a fine place to stay for one night. My boyfriend and I were in the area for one night while we attended a friend's wedding. Considering that we didn't stay in our room for more than getting ready and sleeping this motel was served it's purpose. Although this motel looks a little sketchy when you first pull up it's not as bad as it's […] first glance may make it seem and I would definitely book another room if I ever needed another one night stay!

"Perfect weather and beautiful setting!"
The room was very clean and well stocked with refrigerator and many bath and shower supplies that I often forget. Location was great for our visit. The best thing was the view from the back windows which were large and actually opened! Something I seldom see anymore. There were chairs and picnic tables overlooking the Connecticut River and the sunsets […] fabulous. Free breakfast including waffles. Can't wait for our next college reunion.

"Shabby but clean. No wifi!"
Ok place to sleep but not having wifi is a deal breaker.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap Night Stay"
Hotel was ok as far as cleanliness but is in need being update. Breakfast was very skimpy. Don't depend on it for your breakfast. Walls are thin. Was woken up various times by room next door. View out the window was very nice of the river but we were only there for a good nights rest which ended up being just ok.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value for the money"
I rarely write reviews. This hotel provided good value for the money, with a larger room, newer TV, refrigerator, microwave, desk, table and chairs, iron and ironing board, and two queen size beds. Decent breakfast for a discount hotel. We received a good price through Expedia Preferred. No exercise facilities. Want better? Pay more.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean with pleasant view"
The motel is not modern but does have some modern conveniences-Wi-Fi, HD. It is clean. Bathrooms are small but has amenities such as hair dryer, spare toothbrush, razor etc. Breakfast was good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great little spot"
Nice location and great price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for price"
If you want a place to stay for a couple of days, just to sleep, this is an okay place. Its not a place for just lounging around and enjoying hotel amenities like a pool, because there isn't one. It's got a nice view of a lake, though, and very quiet so that you can get some shut eyes.Genuine Expedia guest review
you get what you pay for - I am one who does not need frills, just a bed and a shower, and this about sums it up for this place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The motel is definitely a mid-century classic, so its a little rough around the edges with deferred maintenance. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioner did a good job keeping up with a hot and humid summer stay. If you like lift your arms in the shower to scrub your hair, well the shower stall was really tight, with the shower curtain catching […] elbows. The room had a great view of the river. It is located within minutes of Dartmouth, so if you spent all your money sending your kid there, you can save a few bucks and stay here when you visit. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel over looking river"
My daughter, her boyfriend and myself had a nice time at sunset motor inn. The staff was helpful and the room was clean and comfortable. Nice quiet location away from White River Junction, VT. The continental breakfast had waffles, English muffins, cereal, fruit and of course coffee and tea.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient to where we traveled in New Hampshire."
This hotel had all the amenities you would expect--well-equipped bathroom, microwave, frig, TV, plus ironing board and iron. The free breakfast in the clean breakfast room had hot and cold items. What was not satisfactory was that you could hear traffic on Route 10 at all hours, and the walls are thin--we could hear the TV in the next room, but not […] late into the night.
