... so our white bods were more protected.
Had a nice lunch at one of the places at Pier Park and then back for a swim and a shower. Later we ventured out to complete the unfinished Mini Golf game that Louise was presently in the lead after hole #1. Well well well tonight was finally our night. Team Marshmeier finally prevailed over the Sach power couple. We ...
Had a lay in this morning, which was a lot less satisfying than it sounds. Resting in our Tent\Humid Sweat box really does nothing for my motivation levels. So I'm officially 34 and boy did i feel every year of the 34 today. Everything hurts all the way from my sore head to my sun burnt arms down to my insect bite riddled legs.
We emerged from our tent at 10 to find the Sachs washed, fed and rearing to go. Today they had plans to take us to ...
... The water was amazing. Crystal clear, about 80+ degrees and bright white sand. Us whiteys slathered up with our SPF 80 and jumped on in. Thankfully we had dragged our scuba masks and snorkels across the country because within a matter of minutes we had fish darting at our feet (possibly trying to eat our legs). More than a few times we were immersed in schools of hundreds and hundreds of small silver fish. We also spotted a few crabs and I saw a small manta ray. Chris wore ...
... steps from our site. Here we met a fabulous Daiquiri Shack worker named Rob, who although he turned out to be quite a bit racist he did make quite delicious Daiquiris.
Tomorrow is my birthday so I'm excited to find out what surprises Les has in store for me. It's sure to be a good one since i did quit my job and take her around America.
Point of note today we broke through the 7000 miles driven barrier.
Boys are still in Tallahassee, so I got to spend time w my sisters, taking them to see the houses I saw & they loved my favorite one! We laugh so hard when we're together! Lunch at Finn's & I am learning my way around pcb! Picked up the boys & got ready to leave for northern Alabama. Went over to visit w one of my favorite people, Shea's mom, Wendy. I just love her! Took the kids to Funtown where we played lots of games (skeeball!) & won lots of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sunset Inn Panama City Beach
Best hotel ever
Never been more happy with a hotle.Beautiful place friendly people, best kept secret in panama city.Beach behind the hotel is just beautiful, one of the best looking ive been on.
Great Time At Sunset Inn
We just returned home from a visit at the Sunset Inn and as always it was wonderful. We have stayed at this motel on numerous occasions and have always found it to be clean, a very nice swimming pool and everyone is always so helpful. Penny has always went out of her way to help us get a room and she is so friendly and always remembers you.
Also, this motel is a family motel and very quiet and peaceful and also ideal for young children. We have carried our grandchildren here several times.
Best in PC Beach
4th July weekend was our first stay at the Sunset. It won't be the last! We are going back Labor Day! Wonderful place, clean, friendly mgmt, maids are funny and delightful.... excellent maid service. We've stayed all over Panama City Beach and the Sunset Inn is by far the best place. We made reservations for 8 days but stayed over 3 extra days and Penny managed to get us the rooms for the extra nights even though it was a busy week and they were booked up!!! Can't say enough great things, we just love the place. Great food across the street at the Quarterdeck so you never have to drive anywhere! Chair rental at the Sunset beach is great the guy is friendly and keeps the beach the cleanest around. If your thinking of PC Beach give the Sunset a try you won't be disappointed.
Love the Sunset
The Sunset Inn is a quaint family owned motel- I have been been staying with them for over 15 years! Thanks to Penny & Gus, and their extended family- they make everyone's stay a great experience. I recommend this motel to anyone looking for a wonderful vacation, and it is close to all major attractions. Also, Thanks to Anthony- our beach attendant for many years of dedication! He will have your chair and umbrella waiting on you. Penny & Gus are from Greece, but also reside in PC,Birmingham AL & Chicago. Penny's husband Alex has BBQ restaurant in Birmingham- Gus has family in Chicago. Get them all together at the Sunset and you are in for a lively conversation!
We stayed at Sunset during Spring Break for just a couple of nights and were so impressed with how friendly the staff and owners were to us we came back to stay longer just three weeks later! I am 23 years old and you don't find many hotels that treat you with respect for your age. Sunset Inn treated me like an adult with no harassment. I will be returning this summer to stay again. Thanks for a great stay Sunset Inn!!!
Good value at sunset inn
We were at the Sunset Inn last week. Extemely reasonable, convenient and the staff was very accomodating and did an outstanding job of keeping the room clean. We will surely return next year but will get a room in the main building. Pretty noisey in the back annex across the road but then again it was spring break. Great faciility and a good value
Home away from home right on the ocean
We have stayed with Penny and Gus every year for 10 years. A couple of times we have strayed but always left the other hotel and returned to the sunset inn. For a well run, family oriented, quaint inn right on the beach, there is no better place to stay. What a find!!!!! The rooms are like your own home and the staff just like your own family. They remember you from year to year and are always pleasant and helpful. For families traveling with children or couples wanting time alone, the sunset offers the quiet off the beaten path yet right on the ocean you crave. I won't stay anywhere else.
Great time at Sunset Inn
We went to Panama City Beach last March and had such a nice stay at this hotel. The rates were extremely reasonable and the rooms were clean and included a small kitchen area. The owners are very nice and curteous and are willing to help whenever they can. There is a pool on site or the hotel is on the beach. The section of the beach that is on is very clean and quiet. Great for couples and families. Highly recommend!
Nice price-Good Location
For those of you who want a clean, comfortable room just steps from the ocean and 1/4 mile from great entertainment...The Sunset Inn was a "great find" in a sea of overpriced super hotels. It's not super fancy but it's has a nice pool for those of you who don't want to jump into the ocean. Good for a family or older couples to relax without all of the loud noises and teenagers. I think you'll enjoy staying there...
