The Sunset Inn
Ranked #1 of 2 Sunset Beach B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 18, 2014

Our two-day visit to Sunset Beach was excellent. The Inn was very comfortable. Our third floor room was tastefully decorated and gave a real “beach” feel. The screen porch offered beautiful views of the marsh and evening sunsets. The beach, a short walk from the Inn is clean and perfect for long walks. The Inn staff is friendly and helpful. Their DVD library offers a good selection of movies for room viewing. We had planned a fun 4hr kayak trip, but sadly the weather turned cold and windy. The Inn had no issue with our cancelling the trip and promptly refunded the fee. We replaced that activity with a visit to a wonderful craft center a short drive south. Casual area restaurants offer tasty seafood and several well-crafted beers. We arrive home relaxed and well rested.

What a hidden treasure. The rooms were well appointed and spotless. I loved the screened in porches overlooking the marsh. What a double treat. Beach and sunrises out front and evening sunsets out back. A must do if you are visiting Sunset Beach. Staff was also fabulous. Andrea and Cynthia you are gems. Thank you for everything.

Room Tip: Ask for Cynthia when making your reservation. She is very helpful and accommodating.

A friend and I came for a long weekend trip to Sunset Beach and decided to stay at the Sunset Inn from all the positive reviews. I wasn't disappointed: the staff people were personable, the rooms were clean, quiet, and the views from the screen-in porch were amazing.

Sunset Beach itself was breath-taking, at around 7:30pm the sunset is visible from Bird Island. Like a brilliant orange fire ball, the sunset paints bright reds and oranges across the sky. I saw people pull over on the side of the road just to get a snapshot of it.

All in all, I had a good experience and will be coming back to the Sunset Inn.

The facilities are very nice, the rooms are comfortable and very attractive. The staff is especially welcoming and friendly. Breakfasts were excellent, with protein, grain, dairy and fruit available. I would definitely stay here again and can recommend it without hesitation.

Room Tip: All of the available rooms are documented with photographs on the website. I was not on an end room...

We have stayed at Sunset Inn many times and have never been disappointed. We were just there for Valentine's and our anniversary. This is where we like to spend all of our anniversary's. The staff is the best, they treat you like family. The rooms are always so clean and beautiful, each one decorated entirely different. As long as they have their doors open we will be back. Thanks for the wonderful week-end!!

Room Tip: Corner rooms are large and sunny and we do like to stay on the top floor.

My husband and I went for Valentine's weekend. The room was immaculate and we were greeted with chocolates and champagne, as well as homemade heart shaped brownies. The views were spectacular and the Inn was peaceful and quiet. The employees were so friendly, laid back and welcoming. I would highly recommend the Sunset Inn!

Hubby and I have celebrated two anniversaries at The Sunset Inn. We love the quiet, serene ambiance...from there being just a number of rooms (designed for couples) to the marsh view outside.

We enjoyed walking down to Sunset Beach; enjoyed the nice breakfast buffet. There are books to borrow for entertainment, and may be some dvds (can't remember).

We enjoy having a whirlpool in our suite and staying on the top floor...Have stayed in both the Hatteras room and the Bird Island room. Both on the end with a large corner porch. We really enjoyed both the rocking chairs and the swing on our private back porch!

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet/sound proof, which is a huge make-or-break deal in my opinion. Can't go wro...
