Reviewed September 5, 2012

Me and my wife went here for our 8th wedding anniversary and it was great. Check in was quick and easy manager done a good job showing us around. The rooms were really nice clean and had a great smell. It was a good afforable weekend get away, with just a short walk you were on the beach. Each morning there was a great breakfast and friendly staff to help start your day. This is our new get away spot for me and my wife.

We stayed labor day weekend for a short getaway and it was a great vacation. The staff was super friendly and helpful--not to mention that the house is beautiful and the room we stayed in was really nice, clean and comfortable. It had a mini fridge and coffee maker, so you can have coffee before breakfast is served. You can rent chairs and umbrellas from them for a great price so you don't even have to bring them with you! I agree with a previous review that a ceiling fan would be nice on the screened in porch but at night it wasn't too hot and sticky and it was nice to sit outside and not get attacked by bugs! We will definitely be back!

We aim to please :). Thank you for your kind review. We are so glad you were able to getaway for a few days and stay with us during the holiday. We would love to have fans on the porch, but unfortunately we were not allowed when the Inn was built in 2000. I bet today would be different. Thank you for your suggestion and come back and see us soon!

We stayed one night and couldn't have been more pleased....the service, the room, the whole experience. Very impressed with the room conditions...spacious and functional...the mattress was excellent and the remote controlled A/C was nice....The only suggestion is to consider ceiling fans on the screened in porch....oh, and to have fresh brewed coffee earlier than the 8:15 breakfast (which was also excellent I might add)

Room Tip: Choose one on the top floor to avoid heavy footed guests above you....

Thank you for staying with us. We hope next time we can convince you to stay more than one night. Glad you loved the coffee! We have coffee pots in the rooms so we can get you started early, but you are right nothing is better then freshly brewed coffee. Hope to see you again in the future.

This Inn was simply overflowing with Southern Charm. We stayed in the Smithville Room, it was very pleasant. The breakfast room was very pleasant. We really appreciated the showers on the ground floor upon returning from the beach. The ground were nicely decorated and very quaint. We enjoyed our view of the marsh from our balcony. Wild dear roamed out the back and even came as close as right under our balcony. We'll have very pleasant memories from this stay :).

Room Tip: The next time I saty, I would choose a room on the right side of the 2nd floor. From the 2nd floor...

We left early to give ourselves extra time, to find the Inn and have lunch near the beach before check-in. We were not familiar with the area, so we spent a bit more time finding the island. The Sunset Inn is conveniently located on the left just as you enter the island. It's in a very nice setting and just a short stroll to the beach. Andrea warmly greeted us at the front desk as we entered to ask if my wife and I could leave the car parked while we walked to the beach. Andrea surprised us by offering to check us in early (very early) as we had arrived well before check-in time. Since the moment we arrived and throughout our stay our experience was absolutely fantastic. The staff was friendly, our room - the Charleston, was very clean and comfortable and breakfast was superb. We look forward to returning and hope to stay longer during our next visit.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sunset Inn. Everything was perfect. The Bermuda room was beautiful with a great view of the Marsh. So clean and great furnishings. The breakfast was delicious and the staff so friendly. If you are visiting Sunset Beach. This is the place to say.

Looking for a quiet place to spend some time on the beach, this place is for you. Beautiful rooms, great staff and an excellent location to Sunset Island. It is a must stay location!

They offer a nice breakfast room with sunny porches and wind swept views. You will enjoy your stay!
