We have friends who stay here every summer and love the place, so we decided to stay a couple extra nights following a weeks stay in a local condo. I have to say compared to other places on the beach this particular weekend the price was excellent! Room was very clean and in excellent condition. You don't find many "old... More

Our first visit to Sunset Inn was 1990. We consistently visited yearly until the kids grew up. We took our granddaughter in 2006 and 2008 but due to health issues we have been unable to travel that far since 2008. We just returned from a 3-day stay just before the Memorial Day holiday 2016. Due to the last minute decision... More

This was not our first trip to Sunset Inn. We took our two boys there 22 years ago. It's the same friendly family owned inn that it was then. We had a beach view bottom floor room. It's nice to walk out your door and be on the beach in 2 minutes. It's close to some of our favorite places... More

We come to Panama City Beach at least once per year and stay at Sunset Inn every time! It's an older complex but that is what we like about it. It's family owned and they are always willing to do what they can. We enjoyed it so much we have already booked another room for 2 weeks from now!

This place was a high rise that stood out among the private properties when it was built. Now, it is an humble two-story beachfront that hearkens back to the Golden Years of Panama City Beach. The prices are the best in the area and the family that owns and operates the property make every effort to please their guests. At... More

My family and I have been stayed here at least once a year for over a decade. There have been more than one mix-up with our room in the past, but we've overlooked those as well as the very rude older lady who used to work in the office. I really prefer being beach side, but this year we needed... More

Sunset inn never disappoints. If your looking for a family run hotel with great customer service, clean rooms, best views on the beach, then you've found it! ! This is our 2nd year returning to sunset and I would never go anywhere else. They make us feel like part of the family. Their rates are affordable and you get tons... More

Not a high-rise condominium so the only high you'll experience is the short walk to white sand and surf. Clean rooms, currently updating. Rooms, condos and efficiencies. Pools located in two strategic locations. One directly outside your door if you wish. Responsive, caring staff. Any problems are handled directly with management, always responsive and efficient. A sign of a great... More

This was a last minute stop for me. Given that I was a walk in w/o a reservation, the rate I got was ok but a bit higher than the lowest rate listed in the AAA tourbook. The room definitely showed signs of wear, but overall, seemed sufficiently clean. Apparently, there was a biker convention of sorts going on (or... More
