    Historical Traveler Reviews The Sunset Inn Sunset Beach

    Great Beach Inn


    This inn is great! They have thought of everything! Their website is so user friendly! We stayed for 3 nights and would have loved more but had to return to work! The rooms are well appointed, great beds and wonderful bathrooms! The breakfast beats most B and B's. The Sunset Inn is very close to Sunset Beach which is the best beach ever! We will go back!

    Perfect vacation at Sunset Inn


    My 4 days at the Sunset Inn were truly a delight! Both the room and the bath were immaculately clean, the staff was hospitable and gracious (especially the 2nd time I lost my room key!), and the rocking chairs and porch swing provided a glorious view. I am an innkeeper from another state and am incredibly judgmental when I stay at hotels or inns. Before I departed I made my reservations to return to the Sunset Inn next August!

    Sunset Inn was perfect


    The Sunset Inn was absolutely perfect for our romantic, quiet getaway. Not only was Andrea very nice and helpful for the entirety of our stay, but she remembered that it was our anniversary and had chilled champagne ready for our arrival. The room was really nice, just as it looked in the picture and it was a great benefit to have the porch screened in, allowing us to just leave the sliding door open. Plus, it's a convenient 5 minute walk to the beach. A perfect place to stay and we plan to return soon.

    You won't want to miss--so double-check your online res . . .


    Wonderful, clean, convenient place with a friendly local attitude. Short walk from one of the best quiet, family beaches in NC. Guests are friendly toward one another and strike up easy conversation over the ample breakfast (included), which always includes one or two fresh-homemade items.

    Be sure that, if you book a reservation online for more than one night, you call the inn to confirm it. I reserved 2 nights online only to find out the next morning, after our late arrival, that we had to check out of the room.

    The Sunset Inn is wonderful


    For many years our family has rented a house on Sunset Beach. It is my favorite place to vacation. Every since the Sunset Inn was built I have wanted to visit. Finally, this fall, my husband and I were able to take a romantic weekend away from it all and I chose the Sunset Inn. We loved every minute of it. The beaches are very quiet on the off season. The Inn itself is plush, yet quaint.

    We we hope to make The Sunset Inn an annual getaway for us. I highly encourage anyone looking for a private escape to induldge in The Sunset Inn.

    Sunset Inn PERFECT!


    First off, let me say that I found Sunset Beach on our way to visit family, it is the most beautiful beach we have ever seen! The next year I did some research on it, and found Sunset Inn. And I will tell you, its the most perfect place I have ever stayed! The staff was warm and courteous, and the rooms was magnificent! We LOVED everything about it, and plan to move to the area in the near future. Can't say enough great things about the area!

    Wonderful Experience at the Sunset Inn


    My husband and I stayed at the Sunset Inn at Sunset Beach, North Carolina July 28th -July 3st in the Dogwood room. The room was beautifully decorated and very clean. Most rooms at the beach have some moldy smells but this room as well as the entire inn was odorless. The towels and wash clothes were soft and smelled clean and fresh. The staff was extremly nice and helpful throughout our stay. The breakfast was delicious. The assortment of food was perfect...something sweet, fruit, cereal, juices and coffee and a hot breakfast item as well. No problem with parking while at the inn and the beach was a short walk away or you could drive. Public parking if you arrived early enough or you could pay a small fee to park close to the beach. The beach was clean and very relaxing. Great food and shopping is only a few miles away. We had a wonderful experience and plan to return as often as possible. Thanks SunSet Inn!

    Peaceful Getaway


    We really enjoyed staying at the Sunset Inn. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were immaculate! It had a bed and breakfast atmosphere with modern amenities. The breakfast was set up buffet style and was displayed nicely. Everyone there was very nice and we will look forward to staying with them again.

    The Sunset Inn: A Home away from Home


    I discovered the Sunset Inn on the Internet and I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was more then I could have asked for. I just wanted to get away and have a relaxing weekend, and it was just beautiful. The staff were very friendly, my room was gorgeous, and even though it was a little chilly, I still enjoyed reading on my screened porch! Sunset Beach itself is a real treasure. I loved strolling on the beach and watching the sky change colors. I haven't seen beautiful Sunsets like that in a long time. And I collected quite a few shells including my favorite...sand dollars. If you are looking for a sophisticated place to stay and you want peace and quiet, I highly recommend the Sunset Inn, in Sunset Beach, NC!

    Nice, but Nothing Special


    If you are looking for a B&B, this is not the place to stay, as it's operated more like a hotel. We were misguided because we found the Sunset Inn through a B&B website. My husband and I stayed for the weekend to celebrate my birthday and our anniversary. They knew of the special occasions in advance, yet there was nothing special provided to us ... (flowers/wine/congrats??). We did not see the owners upon arrival (nor at any other time over the weekend) and were greeted lukewarm upon arrival. The lobby closes at 6:00 every evening. The rooms were clean and the place is quiet. They could do much more of the "little touches" to make the rooms more comfortable and cozy. The beach was nothing special. There are much nicer beaches in NC. The beach access is located right next to a pier, so it's pretty crowded. We enjoyed a dinner at The Parson's Table in Calabash. Highly recommend! The meal was fabulous and the service outstanding. It's located in a church that was built in the 1800's. Very quaint and romantic.

    I'm living in Wilmington, NC currently. My boyfriend and I decided to go to Myrtle Beach since it was raining all day in Wilmington. We headed to North myrtle, about an hour and 10 min from Wilmington, and we went to barefoot landing. We walked around for about an hour then decided to do something else. We went to broadway at the beach and went to helicopter ...

    We loved this anchorage. Under-rated in the guide books. we swam; went ashore
    and have great sunset and sunrise moments. This will be our last night in North Carolina, tomorrow we start our tour of South Carolina.

    After the frantic two days at Disney, it was time to head north. I knew I had to get to Charlotte as this was where I had bought the flights out of back to JFK. I decided to go the route of Jacksonville, Charleston, Myrtle Beach and then finally Charlotte.

    Jacksonville is still in the state of Florida and although we got in late, and perhaps I ventured a bit too far on the wrong side of town, it was one of the more 'rough' places I have ...

    We arrived Southport early morning in time for me to get set up for work.

    Southport is a cute town with some fun shops and interesting restaurants.

    ... and our first NC boating experience.

    Southport, NC Freedom Club doesn't allow fishing or dogs on their deck boats so we left the pups at home. Our further disappointment was that there were no navigational charts available so we were sent out in unfamiliar waters with an outgoing tide. We explored the Intercoastal a bit but just didn't feel comfortable venturing into other bays or rivers without a chart, so we cut our time and trip short today. It was nice to ...
