We stayed here 1 night after a long day of driving. The room was very clean, recently updated, plenty of parking, and comfortable. There was no A/C, but that wasn't an issue as the room was plenty cool. The check-in/-out process was easy and the woman at the front desk gave us some great close by restaurant recommendations. We would... More

We arrived for Car Week at short notice. The inn is in a great location away from the hustle so quite, but close enough to enjoy the fun. Very close to the foreshore. The rooms were what you would expect from a management that cared for their business. We were greeted well on arrival, the rooms were clean parking on... More

We stayed here for two nights during our road trip on PCH as we booked a whale watch tour in Monterey. I really liked our room. It was huge and the bed was comfy. Also the place was clean and although no AC it was not extremely warm. Barbara was very nice and funny and she gave some good and... More

I wish we had found this little place years ago. We have stayed in other lodging in PG over the years and had I found this the first time I would never have stayed anywhere else. It is charming, quaint, cute, close to the ocean for a walk and very roomy. Our shower was quirky but that didn't matter because... More

Updated room, comfy bed, huge shower, very short walk to ocean path and beaches. A great little place to stay in Pacific Grove. Better than I expected. Noise issues similar to other hotels, including higher level hotels, where we have stayed.

The place is nice, well maintained, very clean and homey. You really don't feel like you are in a motel. Location is nice and close to the beach and downtown Pacific Grove (which by the way, is nicer than Monterey). However! We were shocked to realize there was no air conditioning. We kinda wondered why when we first got there... More

The sunset inn is very nicely located within pacific grove. No air con, but the sea mists mean that temperature is not a problem. Close to the lighthouse and the walks and also the aquarium in Monterey it is perfectly placed. Barbara mans the front desk - she is the owner too - and she has information on all the... More

Stayed at the Sunset in July. The area is wonderful and I'd highly recommend it. The property looks fine from the exterior and the rooms are reasonably updated, but the floor in our shower (consisting of cemented faux-pebbles) was disintegrating and sorely in need of repair. Also, no bottle opener or cork screw and the office was closed before 9pm.... More

We chose the Sunset Inn from reviews on Trip Advisor. We took the large double queen room and it was very comfy and nicely decorated. They do not put on pretenses. The inn is for sleeping comfortably at a good value and that's what they deliver. The fact that they are a 1/2 block from the beach is a fabulous... More

Stayed here 3 nights with my husband and 2 children while visiting the area. Good affordable place to stay when compared to some other options in the areas. Our double queen room was plenty big, had a good sized refrigerator and fireplace. No AC, but not needed. A fan would have been helpful as the room gets stuffy. Bathroom had... More
