My wife and I recently made our first trip to Sunset Beach. It was great! It's very non-commercial. The Sunset Inn is near the entrance to the island off the bridge, which overlooks like the inter-coastal wetlands behind it. A nice getaway place. We were able to walk to beach in about 5 minutes or less. We stayed in the... More

Our two-day visit to Sunset Beach was excellent. The Inn was very comfortable. Our third floor room was tastefully decorated and gave a real “beach” feel. The screen porch offered beautiful views of the marsh and evening sunsets. The beach, a short walk from the Inn is clean and perfect for long walks. The Inn staff is friendly and helpful.... More

What a hidden treasure. The rooms were well appointed and spotless. I loved the screened in porches overlooking the marsh. What a double treat. Beach and sunrises out front and evening sunsets out back. A must do if you are visiting Sunset Beach. Staff was also fabulous. Andrea and Cynthia you are gems. Thank you for everything.

A friend and I came for a long weekend trip to Sunset Beach and decided to stay at the Sunset Inn from all the positive reviews. I wasn't disappointed: the staff people were personable, the rooms were clean, quiet, and the views from the screen-in porch were amazing. Sunset Beach itself was breath-taking, at around 7:30pm the sunset is visible... More

The facilities are very nice, the rooms are comfortable and very attractive. The staff is especially welcoming and friendly. Breakfasts were excellent, with protein, grain, dairy and fruit available. I would definitely stay here again and can recommend it without hesitation.

My husband and I went for Valentine's weekend. The room was immaculate and we were greeted with chocolates and champagne, as well as homemade heart shaped brownies. The views were spectacular and the Inn was peaceful and quiet. The employees were so friendly, laid back and welcoming. I would highly recommend the Sunset Inn!

Hubby and I have celebrated two anniversaries at The Sunset Inn. We love the quiet, serene ambiance...from there being just a number of rooms (designed for couples) to the marsh view outside. We enjoyed walking down to Sunset Beach; enjoyed the nice breakfast buffet. There are books to borrow for entertainment, and may be some dvds (can't remember). We enjoy... More

I asked for special permission to bring my 8 year-old son to Sunset Inn and was delighted to be welcomed as we were. His birthday request was to go to Sunset Beach to see if we can find interesting animals in the tidal pools. Neither of us had been to the beach in the winter before. The Inn was beautiful,... More
