Sunset Motel reviews

The room and facilities were extremely clean, the kitchen supplies were quite satisfactory, and considering the hotel was a distance from the main part of town, it was nice to be able to eat in. The room was large, the beds comfortable, and the sliding glass doors provided a nice view of the mountains. There was a small table outside where one could sit and enjoy the scenery. Unfortunately it rained during the next day, and the evening when we were there, so do check on the weather before you go. The hotel is best for people with vehicles and families needing cooking facilities. Make sure to do your own dishes before you leave or be charged. The hotel is on the road to Lake Matheson and about three minutes drive from the small town center, or the Fox Glaciers. Make sure to check at the Tourist Center for conditions at the Glacier before heading out. Some of the trails can be closed, and the advice they provide on the types of walks is excellent.
