My wife and I stayed at the Sunset Inn for three nights. The view of the beach was awesome. Our balcony was private on the second floor. We enjoyed our stay. The service was great and the room was clean. The room reminded me of how Panama City beach used to be twenty years ago. We would definitely stay here... More

We've come here for the last few years and it doesn't disappointed. The view is beautiful! This place is off the busy area but close enough to everything. It's Down towards the state Park area. The room was comfy it had a kitchen which was nice to keep our stuff cold. We just love this place 😆

Sunset Inn, Panama City Beach, Fl. Surf Dr, terrible room very dirty. Even had roaches. The room was so bad, needs painting and needs new beds and kitchen. Never again. See some pictures of room below.

We checked into a "Gulf View" 2 queen room on July 9th. The view was perfect. Keep in mind, we were there for the beach, the view, rest and relaxing. There were a few things in our room that were not perfect, but it didn't really bother us. We knew when we booked the room, it was an older place...so,... More

We arrived on a Saturday after a 9 hour drive from the New Orleans area. The tunnel in Mobile was backed up for about 10 miles and HWY 98 was stop and go for about 15 miles. Finally, we got to our hotel and ready for a rest. The room had a strong smell of cleaner solution (could have been... More

This place was quick and easy to check into. The room was clean. It's old and it's not plush, but if you are looking for clean, on the quieter end of the beach, with easy access to anything you need, this place is it. I hate to even review it for fear more people will discover it making it harder... More

This is a nice place to stay if you don't mind being across the street from the beach. It is great if you are only in town for a day or two. Great location. You are about 150 yards from the beach. Really nice people that runs the place.

The service I experienced was not good. The staff was not very friendly nor customer service orientated. The room phone did not work and WI FI was off and on. This particular Inn charges your credit card up front and wont refund your money if you have to check out early. The room had a musky smell. The bathroom smelled... More
