This was our first visit to Sunset Beach and the Sunset Inn. We loved it. Like previous reviews the attention to their guests and friendliness as well as aiming to please is exceptional. We will return. Thank you all for making our needed getaway such an enjoyable stay.

We have stayed at the inn numerous times and will continue to call it "Our home away from home". The staff always great you with a smile and are very accommodating. Even though it was chilly outside during this visit, however Courtney's smile and her great personality made it feel like summertime!! Thank you for fixing Gene eggs for breakfast.... More

Just arrived today and frankly very disappointed with the inn. The location is less than desirable. We can see the bridge from our room and there's a subdivision right across from the inn. The bedding is very lacking. In the winter time, you would think they should put a comforter on instead of thin sheet and bedding. Cranking up the... More

I'm sorry that our inn did not fulfill your expectations. We try to be as honest as possible on our website about what you receive during a stay with us and after checking we discovered that your room was booked online. The view from our private screened-in porches is very well received and often talked about, especially in regard to... More

We made a quick trip to Sunset Beach for a wedding and didn't need ocean view or a suite, so this was just right for us..close enough to walk to the beach, nice views over the marsh and the breakfast was just right .

My husband and I needed a getaway from day to day living. I had found this place online after reading about Sunset Beach. We made arrangements to go and what a peaceful, beautiful place. The room was very tastefully decorated and was equipped with all the amenities you could ask for. The hotel is very well maintained and the landscaping... More

We thank you for a very lovely review. Sometimes a quick getaway is just what the doctor ordered and we are glad you found us! Each of the rooms at the Inn are decorated differently and are so pretty. Most of our guest truly love the peace and serenity that the Inn maintains, and come back again and again just... More

Friday morning we decided to go to the beach for the weekend. It was the last warm weekend before turning chilly, perfect timing. The staff was SUPER friendly and accommodating. For example one morning my husband did not care for the breakfast offering and asked for some sausage and scrambled eggs (they had a casserole with sausage, etc.) The lady... More

Don't hesitate to stay here if you like peace and quiet, friendly staff, and a good breakfast to start your day. Recommendations for dinner were great. If you want excitement it is a short drive to Myrtle Beach.

We just returned from two nights at the Sunset Inn. It's difficult to find inns on North Carolina beaches designed for couples and we were pleased to find this place. It was very, very clean. We are picky people and found it immaculate! Breakfast was nice, although the selection somewhat limited when compared to bed & breakfasts we've stayed in.... More
