I stayed at this hotel during a scuba diving trip. The price was excellent. Good location. Clean and quiet. Check out was at 10 am. I had asked the man who checked me in if I could have a little more time to check out in order to shower off the sea water before driving home. While he didn't promise,... More

This is absolutely my favorite place to stay in Panama City. It is away from the crowds and a quiet place for families. It's an older place but immaculately kept. The best part of this hotel was the feeling of being welcomed into a big family when you arrived. You just don't get that at bigger resorts. I will not... More

The Sunset Inn is a very fair value for the price. I won't go over all the same wonderful things everyone else has written, but I will add my two cents. It is cleaner than I expect a beach hotel to be. There was one tiny spot of mold in the bathroom, but when you're next to the ocean, keeping... More

So maybe it was just OUR room because other reviews don't mention these things: the double room with kitchenette "seemed" clean but it wasn't "clean-cleaned" because we had to wear socks or flip flops inside to keep our feet clean & It's not that the place is old..old can be clean..and I'm no plummer but water filling up over your...

The owners are there in the office to greet you. Very clean pools and rooms. Great place to stay for the price. I highly recommend this hotel, it is family owned and operated.its right on the beach they have free WiFi. Its quiet at night and any problems with your room they fix it.

The whole gang makes you feel at home and a part of the family. If you need something at any given time Jim and the rest of the crew will try their darnedest to make sure it happens, the house keeping staff deserves kudos too. I like the "red carpet" treatment every where that I go and you always get... More

Nice hotel on a very family oriented section of the beach. Pool was very clean and nice. Both pool and ocean view rooms were nice. Anthony's Beach Service was excellent! The housekeeper that took care of the second floor of the new building failed to clean our room or provide clean towels two days in a row. With the exception... More

This small motel was a quiet refuge from the condo forest that Panama City is becoming. The room was clean and comfortable, and we appreciated the kitchenette. There were some small annoyances - no ice machine available in 95 degree weather, sticking door to our bathroom - but overall a good value.

What a charming little slice of heaven!This hidden gem sits nestled among high rise giants right on Panama City Beach. We stayed in the main building (room 207, Gulf view) and are so very pleased and delighted with our stay! We took advantage of the fully equipped kitchen and had wonderful dinners on the balcony each night. No, this isn't... More
