Our Story

We are a Classic American mid century motel located on historic route 66 in Moriarty, New Mexico, 35 miles east of Albuquerque on Interstate 40. Our family has been serving guests since 1959 with a history that embodies the spirit of America's most iconic highway. Today, we continue the tradition with clean, comfortable rooms and friendly service at an affordable price.

The Sunset Motel is the only remaining original Route 66 motel in New Mexico to still be owned by the original family. The history of the motel dates back to 1959 when Elaine and Bill Pogue started the Sunset Motel to welcome travelers off of Old 66.
