New to us motels! The Highlander on Route 66 and the Fabulous Sunset Motel in NC

Apr 17th, 2012 | By | Category: Retro Travel

I love getting to add new motels to the directory and the listings have been coming in fast and furious and so I’m behind, so brace yourselves for a lot of fabulous new motel listings! Please keep our directory bookmarked for more fabulous motels and hotels as we are trying to add them daily!

First, this motel caught my eye through the fabulous pictures they posted on Flickr!  Staying true to the period, we have the wonderful Sunset Motel at 415 South Broad Street in Brevard North Carolina!

This quaint, retro motel, reminiscent of the 50’s is a must-see when passing through Brevard, North Carolina. When you first drive in you are transported back in time and expect the staff to be sporting beehive hairdos and all the fixin’s. Lori, the new owner, has made some major improvements and will be continuing to update the charming motel throughout the season. The Sunset Motel celebrates the best of the classic roadside motel experience. They’re the real deal: clean, comfortable rooms, friendly hometown staff, chairs right outside your door so you can visit with neighbors, and an ice maker just around the corner. And yes, for all you city folks, we do have free wi-fi in the all the rooms! The Sunset Motel is conveniently located within walking distance of downtown Brevard and minutes away from Pisgah National Forest and multitudes of other natural attractions.

Our Fabulous second motel is a Route 66 treasure: the Highlander Motel in Williams Arizona!

Alan & Sandra, are excited to bring you a completely refurbished and convenient lodging experience all while maintaining the historical character of this Route 66 Motel. The motel features a huge selection of amenities like free local calls, convenient location, refrigerators, and Internet access. Next time you want a great night’s sleep, amazing service, and money still in your pocket, come vacation with us at Highlander Motel. The Highlander Motel along the Route 66 was originally built by Mr. Marchall Duncan in the year 1950. The Duncan’s had the motel for 46 years, from 1950 till 1996. The son of Marchall Duncan is still living in Williams, where he runs a real estate business. It was owned by several families through the years until 2011, when the Highlander Motel was sold to Alain Aernoudt & Sandra Driesse from Belgium. They hope to welcome you to the historic Route 66 Highlander Motel on your stay in beautiful Williams, Arizona Gateway to the Grand Canyon.
