This family-owned, quiet, two-building, two-story motel is budget-friendly and right on the beach. Step onto the sugary, white sand beaches and enjoy a sensational sunset. The Emerald Coast is known for its blue-green waters. Directly on the Gulf, the wide beaches are wonderful for stretching out and playing. Two pools are available for soaking and splashing and the sundeck is great for relaxing. Private, Gulf front balconies offer spectacular views of the serene surroundings. Grill up some grub on the gas grill or cook up something tasty in your suite. Fully equipped kitchens and queen sleeper sofas are in every suite. Parasailing, pontoon boating, wave runners, Jet ski rentals, boat cruises and fishing charters are available close by.
Try a banana boat ride or rent a bike for recreation. Families also love Gulf World Marine Park, Shell Island, Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, Shipwreck Island and Emerald Falls. Onsite coin-operated laundry makes it easy to pack light.

Just returned from a 4 night stay at the Sunset Inn. We've stayed here several times over the years, but this was our first time in about 4 years. A simple, clean, family owned hotel. Everyone is always very nice. We stayed in a room across the street from the beach, but it was a very short walk to the beach. I didn't want to leave, and we will definitely return! Thanks for the memories, Sunset Inn!
This is a great place for families. The rooms are clean with lots of space, and have kitchenettes.They have a community space overlooking the Gulf with bbq grills. The staff is so nice and accommodative...they treat you like family. The beach is so beautiful and the Inn is quiet at night. This isn't a fancy resort, but it is such a good deal, you won't mind.
