This was my first visit to the hotel. Typically, i would pick something more "resort" like but i was pleasantly surprised. The room was very spacious and clean. Having a refrigerator and kitchen amenities was a plus. Clean towels, cable TV along with a screened in porch only added to the great experience. The Air conditioner worked very well, keeping...

We just came back from Sunset Beach and it was a great hotel, a great value for the money. The beach was great, the location was awesome, the decor was contemporary. I highly recommend this hotel for families; there is a lot to do, from the free bikes, pool, shuffleboard. I can't wait to come back to Sunset Beach!!!

Chose the hotel based on online reviews and was very disappointed to get there and get a room that had a strong smell of mildew/mold. Tried to lay on one of the two beds and realized the horrible smell was coming from the wall that looked water damage and had peeling paint across it. About 10-15 minutes of being in...
