The staff will ensure that your stay is beyond expectations. The rooms are very well decorated and have a great view of the Intercoastal Waterway. The breakfast has many options and is simply delicious. Once you stay... More

The Sunset Inn offers a nice alternative to those who cannot or do not wish to rent an entire house while at the beach. The outside of the Inn has abundant flowers in huge pots suggesting a colorful and happy place to lay your head. There is sufficient parking and check in was efficient and quick. Our second floor corner... More

Simply an excellent place to spend some down time. We had a great stay in "Old Baldy", nice and quiet, yet entertaining. A great place for mental decompression. Visited with a family of deer each morning by our porch, had front row seats to a magnificent sunset each night. Room was great, breakfast was just right. I'll be back.

The Sunset Inn was a fabulous find for a weekend getaway. The Inn staff was friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and well presented with a refrigerator and small coffee pot. The morning breakfast was a combination of healthy homemade and delicious treats. It was a short walk to the beach. We had a delightful experience.

The rooms are just the right size and the screened in porch allows you to enjoy the sunsets and environment without the intrusion of insects. The rooms and very clean. Sunset Beach is beautiful and relaxing. Will definitely return.

My husband and I just spent a week vacationing at the Sunset Inn. We were looking for somewhere new and different to go and we found it at Sunset Beach. The Inn was absolutely perfect. We stayed in a grand room (Old Baldy and Bird Island) and it was everything we expected and more. The room was spotless, the bed... More

We loved staying at the Sunset Inn. The property is clean and well-maintained and the staff members, Andrea and Courtney, were friendly and welcoming. We loved having chairs on the front porch to sit and rock and enjoy the hanging baskets of flowers, as well as the breeze off the ocean, which is 3 blocks away. Our back balcony was... More
