The owners are there in the office to greet you. Very clean pools and rooms. Great place to stay for the price. I highly recommend this hotel, it is family owned and operated.its right on the beach they have free WiFi. Its quiet at night and any problems with your room they fix it.

The whole gang makes you feel at home and a part of the family. If you need something at any given time Jim and the rest of the crew will try their darnedest to make sure it happens, the house keeping staff deserves kudos too. I like the "red carpet" treatment every where that I go and you always get here at Sunset Inn.

Nice hotel on a very family oriented section of the beach. Pool was very clean and nice. Both pool and ocean view rooms were nice. Anthony's Beach Service was excellent!
The housekeeper that took care of the second floor of the new building failed to clean our room or provide clean towels two days in a row. With the exception of one of the owners, the front desk staff was abrupt and seemingly unconcerned. We will likely stay again because of the location and Anthony's Beach service.

This small motel was a quiet refuge from the condo forest that Panama City is becoming. The room was clean and comfortable, and we appreciated the kitchenette. There were some small annoyances - no ice machine available in 95 degree weather, sticking door to our bathroom - but overall a good value.

Room Tip: The building across the small street from the beach was quieter than the one directly facing the wat...

What a charming little slice of heaven!This hidden gem sits nestled among high rise giants right on Panama City Beach. We stayed in the main building (room 207, Gulf view) and are so very pleased and delighted with our stay! We took advantage of the fully equipped kitchen and had wonderful dinners on the balcony each night.
No, this isn't the Hilton...who cares! Our room was immaculate, the service was outstanding, and well...you just can't beat the view. We slept with the balcony door open and enjoyed the sound of the ocean every single night. We will be back next summer!

I can't say enough nice things about this hotel. My family has been visiting for 3 years, and we start planning our next trip before we ever leave! It is a family owned and operated hotel, they make you feel like you are part of the family. The rooms are nice, very clean, and all have a kitchenette with decent sized fridge. Our first stay was "across the street" because of the value and because we had never stayed before. Basically you walk across a little one lane rd with speed bumps, through a breezeway and straight onto the sand. Not a bad walk at all! The next visit we stayed pool side in the main building. Very nice, a little more noisy as we were above the office and the pool is very close. Still a quick walk to the beach, no elevator in this building, but the stairs are not bad. If you are older I suggest requesting ground floor pool side. Chairs and tables are available right outside the rooms to enjoy the pool, and the patio is very close by with plenty of grills for your afternoon enjoyment. Our last trip we were there without our children and decided to get a beach side room in the newer building. We were VERY pleased! This building has an elevator, can be a little challenging to unload the car as the parking lot is across the street and there is a little drive thru you can pull into to unload the car, you just have to wait your turn. It's quick access to the main patio, with the beach shower, or you can use the patio with this building that is decorated very nicely with beautiful flowers, plenty of tables and bbq grills. The balcony view is wonderful! Make sure that you get to know the staff, they will remember you year after year. Also make sure to take extra cash, as this hotel is one of the few in PCB that have beach chair rentals. Anthony is who you will rent from and he is SUPER nice! very easy to get along with, friendly and will do everything he can to make your stay on the beach comfortable. He has became a "beach friend" of ours and we look forward to renting from him each time we go. Prices are very reasonable too! He also has catamaran rides and several other things he rents there...so be sure to walk off the main deck onto the beach and rent the beach chair from him, you will not be disappointed! This hotel is not overran with teens, it's a nice family friendly environment, if you stay here once, you will definitely return. My kids love it here and My husband and I will not stay anywhere else. We just visited May 14, and will be back in July! Book your reservations now!

Room Tip: I recommend the new building. (owner will know what you mean) if you would like a balcony. If you wa...

In the sea of high rise condos and new construction, Sunset Inn is a welcome surprise. If you are looking to revisit the old motels of "Old Florida" then this place is for you. Family-owned and operated, this hotel is clean, quiet and quaint. We were looking for something that was "old school"...a small complex on the beach with the "kitchenettes" that were so popular back in the day. We found it in Sunset Inn. If you get a beachfront ground level room like we did, you have immediate access to the sand! A sundeck is just out your front door and is the perfect place for reading, people-watching and staying out of the sun, There are plenty of bbq grills on the sundeck and ample seating and tables for lunch or grilling your dinner.The owner, "Miss Penny", is an absolute delight. She made us feel as if we were family. The staff seems genuinely glad that you are there. The rooms are clean, the pools are sparkling and you won't find any better access to the beach.We also loved it because it is on the quieter end of PCB, towards St. Andrews. I would highly recommend this hotel if you want something that is reminiscent of simpler days. Prices for beachfront during high season was especially appealing but if you are on a tighter budget, the rooms across the street are amazingly cheap. And the "street" is a neighborhood street, not a 4 lane highway. I highly recommend this establishment and plan on returning again and again!

Room Tip: Get ground level beachfront.
