#1 of 2 B&Bs / Inns in Sunset Beach
Travelers' Choice
The Sunset Inn opened its doors to the beauty of the saltwater marsh and island life in June 2000. The honey-colored wood floors in the entrance and living area shine softly in the light that filters through the large windows. The Inn is not your typical B&B; it is larger with 14 rooms but still has that cozy atmosphere that makes folks feel right at home. An expanded continental breakfast is served each morning buffet style. You may choose to have your morning meal in the breakfast room or in the privacy of your own room. Each room has a different theme and decor with a king-size bed, wet bar, refrigerator, love seat and private screened porch with rockers. The four grand rooms each have a jetted tub plus a larger corner porch with rockers & porch swings, robes and IPod docks. Come experience the quiet comfort for yourself.

I've been staying at the Sunset Inn at least once a year for the past 6yrs. The staff is so friendly and sweet and Inn is so peaceful. Sunset Beach is one of my favorite places to get away for a relaxing weekend and the Inn is the perfect place to stay. Clean and very comfortable rooms, all with a different theme. The breakfast is always delicious and made fresh. (They will even give you the recipes so you can enjoy their breads and muffins when you go home.) During the pandemic they changed to a no-contact check-in and check-out system that works wonderfully. They scaled back breakfast, but still had fresh baked bread (individually wrapped slices) and coffee/tea and other prepackaged assortments. I felt completely safe staying there for a quick get away during these crazy times.

First impressions are lasting impressions. My first impression was via a telephone conversation with the manager. EXTREMELY pleasant and engaging. She answered my questions succinctly and gave me clear directions. When I arrived I met the same dynamic; Professional and engaging. The Inn has adapted to Covid protections for it's guests and are appreciated. I stayed in the Charleston room. It was clean and well apportioned. Music was playing on the tv and was appropriate for the room's namesake. Very enjoyable stay. Quick walk to the beach. Excellent!

My wife and I were able to get away without kids on short notice so we needed a place. It was great. I'm glad we chose to stay here. The room was clean and nice; the view at Sunset was excellent and we didn't mind the short walk to the beach at all (about 3 blocks). We will definitely come back again.

Andrea and her staff were warmly welcoming and helpful, as always. I so enjoy the beautiful view of the quiet marsh from the room's deck at various times of the day. Each morning started with a nutritious and tasty breakfast. I will return again and again.

I booked this trip for my parents as a Christmas gift for them to visit for Valentine's Day weekend. They had SUCH a great time! They stayed in the Bermuda Room and said the layout and views were perfect. The staff was also very helpful prior to check-in answering my questions and they even left a few V-Day treats on their nightstand. Will definitely stay here again!
