We spent two nights at The Sunset Inn. Beautiful place, big, well appointed room, private screen porch overlooking the salt marsh and intracoastal waterway. Very clean and well maintained. The first morning breakfast was a gluten free breakfast casserole! There was also fruit, breakfast breads, cereal, etc. The second morning was a quiche, which was not gluten free but my... More

This little inn is a gem in Sunset Beach, which is lovely, with well-kept homes and minimal touristy places. Every room has its own screen porch with a view of the sawgrass marsh and intracoastal waterway. There is some traffic, like all beach areas, but not like most, so you can rent a couple of bikes and ride around. Andrea... More

The Sunset Inn was everything it said it would be on its website. Beautiful comfortable rooms, peaceful surroundings and a delicious breakfast. Plus, the staff was friendly and accommodating. I can't wait to stay there again.

Disclosure up front that we are in our 60s and we don't care for the crowds, excess shopping hype and high rise condos of beaches like Myrtle Beach. Having said that Sunset Beach was a relaxing beach and the Sunset Inn a good choice for relaxation. Foremost the staff are very nice, rooms are attractive and comfortable and views of... More

Our stay at the Sunset Inn was the highlight of our road trip. The room was much nicer than depicted in the picture and the screened-in porch was a fantastic treat. Breakfast was served in a cozy and cute room and the food was excellent! This business is extremely well run - many great connections with other businesses on the... More

My wife and I are long time visitors to Sunset Beach, enjoying weeks spent there over the past 20 years. We were planning a vacation week to hopefully include Sunset Beach. Knowing that a house would be too much for the two of us, we happened to see a picture of the Sunset Inn in our Sunday paper. That triggered... More

very easy to recommend the Sunset Inn from arrival to departure 100% enjoyable. Stayed in the Vesta suite on the far corner of the inn and enjoyed the screened porch. All amenities that one would expect in a 5 star property and more. The cable TV selection did not miss a channel. The staff we spoke to ,Cynthia and Andrea... More

My wife and I have been visiting Sunset Beach for 20 years now....just a down home simple and laid back atmosphere that is safe and inviting. We always book a home for a week thru a local company. However we needed a quick weekend to get away from some clouds that we're hanging over us. Sunset Inn surely helped us... More

We just returned from our first stay at the Sunset Inn and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a quiet getaway in a beautiful setting. The Bird Island Suite is beautifully decorated with whimsical birdhouses, and the bed was one of the most comfortable we have found anywhere. Cynthia was welcoming and gracious, eager to please, and even made... More

My girlfriend and I recently stayed at the Sunset Inn and we had the most wonderful, relaxing stay there. This is our 2nd year in a row staying there and we couldn't be happier with our choice. Cynthia, one of the managers, was very welcoming and was very helpful and knowledgeable with answering our questions about places to eat and... More
