My husband and I needed a getaway from day to day living. I had found this place online after reading about Sunset Beach. We made arrangements to go and what a peaceful, beautiful place. The room was very tastefully decorated and was equipped with all the amenities you could ask for. The hotel is very well maintained and the landscaping... More

Friday morning we decided to go to the beach for the weekend. It was the last warm weekend before turning chilly, perfect timing. The staff was SUPER friendly and accommodating. For example one morning my husband did not care for the breakfast offering and asked for some sausage and scrambled eggs (they had a casserole with sausage, etc.) The lady... More

Don't hesitate to stay here if you like peace and quiet, friendly staff, and a good breakfast to start your day. Recommendations for dinner were great. If you want excitement it is a short drive to Myrtle Beach.

We've been coming to Sunset Beach for 25 years but this was our first stay at the Sunset Inn and it was absolutely wonderful. The room was charming, spacious and clean and the screened in porch was a perfect place to relax and unwind. The breakfast was freshly made and delicious. The staff was always helpful and friendly. The reason... More

I fell in love with Sunset Beach a few years ago and am only an hour away but I was looking for a place to stay overnight to relax in peace. My online search brought me to The Sunset Inn. After reading the reviews and looking at the photo gallery online I thought this would be a really nice place... More

We just returned from two nights at the Sunset Inn. It's difficult to find inns on North Carolina beaches designed for couples and we were pleased to find this place. It was very, very clean. We are picky people and found it immaculate! Breakfast was nice, although the selection somewhat limited when compared to bed & breakfasts we've stayed in.... More

We were extremely pleased with our recent stay at the Sunset Inn in the Dogwood Room which was exceptionally clean, quiet, and comfortable. The Inn has easy beach and pier access. We enjoyed watching the light over the marsh at different times of day from the screened porch. The staff was very pleasant and helpful with good recommendations about restaurants.... More

We found The Sunset Inn through TripAdvisor and booked online. This stop was one of the best parts of our vacation--had we known, we would have rearranged and stayed at the Inn more than two nights. The views were lovely; the room was clean, comfortable, and modern; and it was always quiet. It was a short two-block walk to one... More

Spent two nights at the Inn. Great location and very friendly staff. Breakfast was good as well as the selection. Room was spacious and very comfortable, with great views of the Intercoastal Waterway. The storage room on the ground floor was an added bonus for our bike storage.
