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

I can't say enough nice things about this hotel. My family has been visiting for 3 years, and we start planning our next trip before we ever leave! It is a family owned and operated hotel, they make you feel like you are part of the family. The rooms are nice, very clean, and all have a kitchenette with decent... More

In the sea of high rise condos and new construction, Sunset Inn is a welcome surprise. If you are looking to revisit the old motels of "Old Florida" then this place is for you. Family-owned and operated, this hotel is clean, quiet and quaint. We were looking for something that was "old school"...a small complex on the beach with the... More

This is an older hotel but it was EXCELLENT!!!!!!! I don't have anything negative to say about our experience. The staff were all friendly, from the office staff to the housekeepers. The pool was very nice. We were only steps from the beach. The rooms were older but very nice. This was our first time staying at Sunset Inn and... More

I felt like I was stepping back in time when arriving at this very nice, very clean and very comfortable hotel. It's got a good sized pool, nice deck overlooking the beach and is a few steps from the ocean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I visited as a couple and will do so again, but plan on...
