I'm always amazed when I read reviews and find other visitors had such a different experience than me. Our stay at this property was great. The staff was helpful and pleasant, the amenities were nice, bikes and other sports offerings were adequate and in decent shape. It's nice they have bikes you can use and not have to contact another...

For the price, we were disappointed in this "motel". I gave it an "average" rating because of its terrific location right on the beach. We booked this "Inn" for girls weekend to celebrate a birthday. We looked beyond our disappointment in the accommodations and had a great weekend, but we would not return to this property. The staff was rude...

Dear happygirl, Thank you for sharing your experience with us.

Sunset Beach Inn is located in the nicest part of the Island, in my opinion. The property is well kept, both inside and out. There's no need to rent a bike as the Inn provides them for free, as well as helmets and locks if you want them. The Inn is also right on the beach and they bring a...

We had a wonderful beach vacation! Perfect location literally steps to the beach! Very clean and comfortable accommodations. Would recommend! Nice quiet location which was very important to us. Amenities included use of kayaks and paddle boards if you are into this, plenty of great shelling on a very Long Beach! Sunrises and sunsets easily viewed from room!

I wonder if the front desk staff here actually know what the hospitality industry is all about. First, we arrive here prior to check in. I get it our room isn't ready yet.. But most other places I have stayed... Once they know you have arrived they sorta make an effort to get you into your room sooner than later.....
