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.

Always stayed at Myrtle beach and wanted something slower paced and private. Sunset Inn was perfect. Rooms were very clean, staff was helpful and friendly. We picked the Hatteras Grand Room which is top floor corner. Had a large porch w/swing and jacuzzi tub overlooking Marsh & Inlet Waterway. Close to Calabash & Ocean Isle Beach too. Liked the quietness... More

We had a great night at the Sunset Beach Inn. The staff is amazingly friendly, our room was bright and very clean, beds comfortable. Love the porch facing the marsh. Breakfast was great including the coffee. Highly recommend. We love Sunset Beach, saw the sunset over the marsh and took a walk at night along the ocean. Very, very nice.

One of the best beaches in NC - beautiful, quiet, and close to great seafood! I have stayed here dozens of times for business trips and for pleasure. Obviously it is a winner because I keep coming back. A great location, superb staff, and clean, well-decorated, comfortable rooms (all with a view). I am sold on it- check it out... More

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
