If you are looking for a "resort" experience then the Sunset Beach Inn is not for you. The hotel is quite dated and the service not the best. The maid service was quite loud, the maids as they are cleaning during the day spend a lot of time talking VERY loudly to each other about their personal lives! Also, our room was not very clean, I dropped something on the floor and when I retrieved it from under the bed I could not believe the dirt and fuzzy things under there, I did not want to call for cleaning as I was concerned that it would be in the air...also the bathroom floor had some gunk on it. There was a "office chair" (with rollers!) in the middle of our room that had no purpose at all, and the other upholstered chair was stained and ripped! Not what I expect for $180 per night. Our TV went out and the maintenance guy finally got it working again.
What they refer to as their "breakfast" items were old fruit, bad coffee and stale bagels, yum.
The paint was peeling off in several areas of the building and trash was heaped below our window which was supposed to look out over the Gulf....the crows found that area to be delectable.
