The Inn is beautiful, super clean and in a nice location with all rooms overlooking the marsh from private, screened balconies. Andrea made us feel very comfortable from the minute we walked in and the rest of the staff was equally warm and friendly. Our room was very quiet, spacious, well-appointed and absolutely spotless. Even with the very heavy rain... More

We celebrated our 29 Wedding Anniversary by staying at the Inn. We were looking for a quiet little getaway and we found it at the Inn. We could go to the beach and/or sit on our private screened in porch and enjoy what we love about the beach. Room was very private and the Staff was very friendly and helpful... More

My husband and I have vacationed on Sunset for years with our kids. Now that we have an empty nest we didn't need a big house to rent so the Inn was perfect. The staff was very friendly, the room was clean and pretty and the breakfasts were great. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to... More

My wife and I randomly chose The Sunset Inn for our honeymoon getaway in 2000 – which just happened to be the Inn’s inaugural season. Now, fourteen years later we think of the Inn and its superior staff as our home and family away from home. Beautifully situated on the grasslands of the island, with immaculate and spacious rooms and... More

My wife and I are from out of state and were looking for a place to get away for a night while in NC visiting family. We found Sunset Inn, and couldn't have been happier with our stay. The rooms were comfortable and modern, yet didn't have that "hotel" room feel. The location is beautiful. It is a five minute... More

For an Anniversary and Christmas present, I purchased a 4 night package for my wife. We stayed in the Cape Hatteras room which was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. In-room refrigerator with wet bar sink came in handy. The screened porch with rocking chairs and a swing had great views of sunsets and the marsh. The service was outstanding. This... More

We had never been to Sunset Beach so we were hopeful that it would be enjoyable and it did not disappoint. The Sunset Inn was a perfect choice for a laid back and restful location. The views from the screened porch, which comes with every room, were wonderful and the accommodations were great. Thank you, Andrea, for providing wonderful service... More

Great B&B. Rooms themed and nice decorations. Views from balcony outstanding. Andrea, the innkeeper, was helpful with recommendations and very personable. Made the morning breakfast that more enjoyable. Can see sunset to the west from balcony. Nice, central location on island and quiet, easy walking distance to beach for morning strolls. Lighting fast wifi.

Best place in NC for a weekend get away. The Sunset Inn is very quite and romantic and really does make you feel like family instead of just like a guest. I have come back time and time again and will continue to come back.

This was our first visit to Sunset Beach and the Sunset Inn. We loved it. Like previous reviews the attention to their guests and friendliness as well as aiming to please is exceptional. We will return. Thank you all for making our needed getaway such an enjoyable stay.
