Not a negative thing to say about this B&B. The Inn is very cozy, welcoming, and clean. It has southern charm and hopitality. We had been going to Sunset Beach for years before finding this little gem. Highly recommended!

We had a summer home at Sunset Beach for many years, but downsized last year and sold it. This was my first trip back, and it is still such a special place. Sunset Beach is laid-back and unpretentious, but classy. That description fits the Sunset Inn also, as it is just the kind of place that makes you feel immediately... More

We were passing through the area on the way to our vacation in Hilton Head Island and booked one night in this beautiful B&B- so glad that we did! We stayed in the Smithville room and loved the décor and style! Breakfast the next morning was delicious- mini quiches, homemade banana bread, yogurts, cereals, juices, coffee- all that we could...

The Sunset Inn is a lovely inn/B&B smack in the middle of Sunset Beach, overlooking the marsh land with the high bridge in view. Huge, beautifully blooming outside planters, beach interior decor -- everywhere you look is pleasant. Our room was perfectly comfortable for two, complete with de-humidifier, on-the-wall a/c, and an air purifier :-). Wet bar, fridge -- everything... More

The front faces the beach but is not on the beach, you need to walk 2-3 blocks.

This was our first trip to Sunset Beach. We have friends that were taking their annual two weeks family vacation, and they suggested we come down for the weekend. Cynthia checked me in and was very friendly. She took me to our room and explained how everything worked. Breakfast each morning was delicious.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
