General Information:

The Sunset goes back to the 1960's or before. It had a fairly large enclosed pool and offered it for use to the local community year-round. It was operated by Mildred and Brice Bennett who hailed from Ann Arbor MI. It was also operated by Mr. and Mrs. A. S. Miles. In 1971 the motel was sold to Grassman Enterprises which was run by Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Grassman.

I found an old business listing on indicating this motel was at 4300 Monroe. That address seems to predate the US-31 Highway we know today. Monroe is the Business Spur of 31. The 1955 aerial is grainy but it does seem to show a motel near where that address would have been. Until I find out differently, I will assume that is the Sunset. I believe the construction of the freeway interchange probably wiped out the old motel and swimming pool building.
