This place may not be the newest on the beach but it was immaculate and the owners make you feel right at home. Think back to the "old days" of the mom and pop motels and there you have it... the Sunset Inn. I think they are the only mom and pop place that caters to tourists in the Panama... More

What a great motel! The rooms are spacious and immaculate---not one grain of sand during our seven day vacation in PCB. It is a bit off the beaten path, yet within five minutes of great restaurants, seafood markets, grocery supermarts, shopping malls, etc. Owner Ann is super friendly, and manager Jeanette is always there to make your visit more comfortable....

We have been going here for the last 10 years. Sometimes 2-3 times a year. We love this place, cannot think of any other place we would rather stay. This family owned business treats you like family. We like to stay in the condos when we have family with us, when my husband and I go down in the Fall... More

My husband and I went to PCB for our anniversary. We had not been to Florida since we got married 8 years ago. We were unsure where to stay. I looked online and it was very discouraging until I found the Sunset Inn ranked 5th on the Tripadvisor website. This was right up there with all the fancy and expensive... More

The Sunset Inn is a small family hotel on the beach. It is broken into three areas, the main building is on the beach and has a sheltered pool. They also have rooms across the street and about ½ block East of the main hotel across the street. Room 204 was basic but acceptable. It had a large bathroom and... More

POOR Service! DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING THESE PEOPLE SAY! My family and I traveled from Georgia to Florida on Labor Day weekend only to be hit with the news that my father-in-law was put into the hospital. I paid for four (4) nights in advance. I was told the next morning that they do not give refunds (for any reason).... More

My husband and I had another great stay at the Sunset Inn this year. We just stumbled upon Sunset Inn about three years ago when we had vowed never to stay at a high-rise multi-plex again! We were just looking for a decent place to stay for our money and then we found Sunset Inn. If you want an over-priced... More

The Sunset Inn, while not being the Taj Mahal of PCB will be remembered by my family as the best days of the summer. We arrived on a Monday and stayed till Saturday. The rooms were clean, we had a two room suite on the beach side. My granddaughter loved having a pool at one door and the beach at... More

I have stayed at the Sunset Inn now 3 times. I even spent a winter at this wonderful family run hotel. Sunset Inn is directly on the beach, yet off the main road, Thomas Drive. Its quiet, peaceful and a charming 30+ year old hotel. The owners keep it very clean. Each room has a small kitchen with an apartment... More

Date: July 26-29 Randy Muscle Shoals, Al. As always our room was ready upon arrival. We stayed across the road in the hotel for the fist time. If you want to save a little money I would do this. Same clean rooms for less money and the walk to pool or beach is only about a 100 ft walk. The... More
