Our visit commenced on the President's Day holiday on a winter special - buy 2 nights get 1 night free. It was a perfectly quiet stay and a great value for the money. We stayed in Champagne -- a two-room second floor suite -- very well appointed. The ocean is just one short block from this hotel; and there is... More

The whole point of visiting a small beach town is to avoid the commercialization of other locals. We booked a suite upstairs and didn't need the extra room but it was cool to walk into the area The bathroom was plenty big enough and the separated toilet was appreciated by all. If you can spend a few bucks you'll make... More

We happened upon this gem while reading the AAA book, and decided to give it a try. We have always enjoyed Cayucos, so it was logical to want to stay there again. (We're from Washington, DC.) Sunset Inn was a very pleasant surprise. The suite we stayed in (Bali) was comfortable and homey. It had an old-time feel, yet it... More

This was our first stay at Cayucos and the Sunset Inn. We had not been able to travel for quite some time because of a surgery recuperation and were looking forward to a pleasant getaway. The getaway wasn't just pleasant, it was terrific. Innkeepers Bonnie, Gina and Sandi made our stay very memorable. They really care about giving great service.... More

Thank you for a lovely escape in a beautiful "home." All the services and furnishings were upper crust without being pretentious. My husband did not watch the TV or surf the internet during our visit - now that says a lot. (But he could have, WIFI was excellent) I gave this a 4 star because our room on the first... More

The atmosphere was restful, the breakfasts were delicious, the employees/innkeepers were were helpful, the bedding was luscious, the towels were sparkling clean and smelled wonderful. I got the rest and sleep I needed desperately after a very busy holiday commotion. The only drawback was the spa tub. It was really dangerous and very uncomfortable. There should be more bars to...

Gina, Bonnie and Sandy helped provide an exceptional mini vacation, thank you! The fact that US highway 1 bypasses it made it quiet and sequelded. We would return again, when we need a winter break from the snow and cold. The evening wine and cheese plus cookies and milk at bedtime a bonus.

We booked online for a last minute night in Cayucus. When we arrived we were greeted warmly and checked in quickly. We were shown to our room and shown all the amenities and how everything worked. We had an upstairs king suite with a front sitting room which included a fireplace, tv and pullout love seat. The bedroom was very... More

If you would like an excellent place to stay in central California near San Luis Obispo, this place is your place. My review won't do this place justice. My fiance and I stopped here for the night while on our way to the bay area. I booked a room and called ahead of time to let the inn keeper know... More
