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

We have been going to Sunset Beach for 10+ years, we have driven by this hotel many times but never stayed here. Future trips to the beach without the kids, we will stay here. The room we stayed in was very comfortable and well maintained. The private screened porch looks over the intracoastal waterway. (In full disclosure, the inn is... More

We visited The Sunset Inn for our anniversary. The room was fantastic, with a private screened in porch. The breakfast each morning offered a variety of foods for everyone to enjoy. You have the option of eating breakfast in your room, on your private porch, or in the common room. The Inn overlooks the sound and is just a short... More

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
