We recently stayed at the Sunset Motor Lodge in Stanford, Ky. The room we stayed in had recently totally renovated. It is a small private owned motel. The attendant was very kind and helpful. The room was very clean and fresh. Good working wifi. The Shower was amazing. We will recommend and stay here again.

Best place ever. While the others in the group was looking for a name brand hotel in Danville with little luck or high price. I travelled back to this place. Parking is a little bit tight. (Feel sorry for bigger vehicles) they are pet friendly and the cats at the front desk was a great sight. The room was really... More

Granted, the choices for lodging in Stanford are limited (Sunset is the only motel / hotel in town). Still, it's easy enough to drive 10-12 miles toward Danville and get into a major chain hotel. But my recent stay at the Sunset was surprisingly good. This is old-style motel, but the rooms have been remodeled, and everything is clean and... More

The motel has a very old time feel. It's neon light glowing is a welcoming sight. I am naturally drawn to all things vintage, and this motel has its appeal. It's remodel is nicely done with not modern furniture, but gently restored pieces of old, circa 1960s! Love the room! I do have to comment negatively that the hotel owners... More

By today standards, most travelers pass up small hotel/motel's like this one. Traveler's are looking for a brand name facility with all the amenities available for a fair price. I am here to tell you that if you are in the area of Stanford Kentucky and need a place to stay, and you pass this facility up for one of... More

Spend a night flashing back to an earlier era of road tripping, and book yourself a room at the sunset motor lodge. Yeah, it sure is a tiny room, but you can really tell the owners care. They pack a lot of stuff into the small space (fridge, microwave, big old box TV etc…) and even leave you some snacks.... More

Nice, updated and affordable motor lodge. The bed was extremely comfortable and the towels were not "scratchy" like most hotels. They also provided snacks and bottled water in your room upon arrival. We stayed here while on the 127 corridor sale (world's longest yard sale). For anyone interested, it's approximately 15-20 minute drive from 127. There is a dollar store,... More
