I took one look, saw he was staying at that rat trap. No thanks.

Sunnydale Motor Inn was a motel located in Sunnydale. It charged eighteen dollars a day.


From late 1998 to early 1999, Faith Lehane took up residence at apartment three. There, she and Buffy Summers were attacked by Kakistos and Mr. Trick, after the vampires had killed the manager.[1] Faith eventually moved out to a penthouse when she became an agent of Richard Wilkins.[2]

In January 2000, another foe of the Scooby Gang, Ethan Rayne, also took up residence at the Sunnydale Motor Inn. After a fight between Buffy and Rupert Giles in Fyarl demon form in his room, Ethan performed a Fyarl transformation reversal and left the place escorted by the Initiative.[3]

In 2002, after leaving his fiance Anya Jenkins at the altar, Alexander Harris spent the night at the motel alone. The night manager led him to room 7, where he informed that the air conditioner was busted and checkout was at 11.[4]

The motel was presumably destroyed along with the entire town after the battle at the Hellmouth in 2003.[5]
