The Sunset Inn is fabulous - great location, delicious breakfast, excellent service, very clean, and absolutely the best at the beach. I have been traveling to Sunset Beach for thirty years, and The Sunset Inn captures everything I love about the island where I spent my summer vacations as a child. My husband and I just returned from a stay... More

I had the best experience from the moment I walked into the Sunset Inn. I was thrilled with the Oleander Room. It was beautiful and clean and I loved the view from the spacious porch. The ladies helped me find a nail spa, were so friendly, and the quiche at breakfast was to 'die for.' I will certainly recommend this... More

There's something magical about sitting in the rocking chairs on your private, screened in porch looking out over the marsh. Whether it's sunset or a rain storm - the experience is beyond relaxing. The rooms are comfortable (beds included!), clean, and just the right amount of space. The beach is truly just a couple blocks away. You can rent bikes... More

My husband and I spend 3 days in Sunset Beach for our honeymoon, and The Sunset Inn made our stay so relaxing! The room was super clean and the bathtub was huge! Loved the view from the screened-in deck. We stayed in the Bird Island room, and would love to make our stay here a tradition.

We are so glad that you spent your honeymoon here at the inn with us!! That is so special! Our Bird Island room is one of our most popular and with good reason. It is a beautifully decorated room, done in yellows, blues and greens. The views from our rooms are lovely, so nice and tranquil. We do hope that... More

Stayed in the Vesta room which is located at the corner end of the second floor. The room was spacious, clean, comfortable, and quiet, with a scenic view of the intra-coastal water way surroundings, which could be enjoyed by sitting on the screened in porch. The bathroom was spacious with a stand up shower and separate large whirlpool tub! The... More

I love our Vesta room, it is such a neat room, named after an old battleship that sank off the coast of NC, I'm glad you liked it too! Our housekeep, Yesenia, is quite a wonder; she keeps the inn in tip top shape. Our views from the screened in porch are so beautiful, definitely not to be missed. We... More

Thanks in part to our stay at Sunset Inn we had a very nice girls week with lifelong friends. The staff lived up to the term Southern Hospitality. The breakfast had plenty of options including homemade quiche or egg dish. Thanks so much!

We spent three wonderful nights at Sunset Inn and it was great! The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and helped us with restaurant suggestions and activities. We enjoyed the delicious breakfast provided each morning and even though it was hot we enjoyed the swing on the front porch and the rockers on the porches.... More

After seeing the Kindred Spirit mailbox story on CBS News, my wife and I wanted to visit Sunset Beach / Bird Island during our trip to North Carolina. We found The Sunset Inn on the Internet and it easily lived up to the other glowing reviews on TripAdvisor. My favorite part was the screened porch overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway. To... More
