We had a nice visit at the Sunset Inn. Great location - wonderful for walking along the ocean, and just about a mile to restaurants in town. (Also good lunch 5 minutes away at grill on the golf course). Hosts at the desk were very pleasant. My one quibble is with very weak coffee in the morning, and not until... More

A block's walk from the scenic Pacific Grove coastline you'll find this charming and price-worthy little inn. Check-in/Check-out was smooth and friendly. The rooms were clean, well appointed, and surprisingly large with the added bonus of including a gas fireplace and a spa tub. The location was superb considering the easy access to Monterey and Carmel, but most importantly the... More

Good location, stunning setting and beautiful looking hotel! Rooms were compact but classy, modern and the beds are comfy. Staff were great and I enjoyed the 1 night I had here! Great base if staying in Monterey, only 5 minutes from the harbour which is 1st class. The walls in the rooms are not overly thick so you may hear... More

From the manager down we received friendly and hospitable service. Every concern was addressed, and the icing on the cake was a nice gift of wine that we enjoyed on our anniversary! We will book again

Owners are onsite and very engaging. Rooms LARGE. Would like a bit more furniture and handier HVAC. Breakfast is the usual pastries, fruit and coffee (no decaf available). Jarvis at the desk is helpful and delightful.

We have been staying at the Sunset for many years, through various owners. The one thing we really miss is the community hot tub in the back. We hope this might be reinstalled soon. Also, this time we felt the continental breakfast served was rather skimpy and detracts from the overall quality of this establishment compared with others in the... More

Hi Sondra S., Thank you for a good overall review and for the feedback. After the Inn changed ownership a few months ago, we looked into the spa that was in the back and removed several years ago. Unfortunately with the current water situation, getting the water credits for a new installation is not possible at this time. However, we... More

We stayed at the Sunset Inn last week and it exceeded our expectations! The fireplace room was very cozy after a brisk walk on Asilomar (steps away!), and the warm and friendly staff made this place extra special. We travel to the Monterey Bay quite frequently, and have stayed all over. The Sunset Inn is a new favorite destination!

I visited the Sunset Inn recently with my husband and two kids (ages 9 and 14). Very cute place-- the rooms were so clean and comfortable. The owners of the Inn were personable and friendly. They recommended wonderful restaurants to try and activities to do while in town, which was so helpful as first-time visitors to the Pacific Grove area.... More

Cute little cottage-like feel, walking distance to gorgeous Asilomar Beach. Nice staff, comfortable rooms. Only complaint is that the walls were very thin--we could hear our neighbors talking, TV, etc. Otherwise awesome!

Check in by Jarvis was a breeze. The owner Michael was very helpful and friendly. He suggested scenic routes and places to visit and chatted us up while we ate the complimentary breakfast. Pastries were delicious and coffee was good. The room was warm and had the basic requirements. The place has a great relaxed vibe. The bay is a... More
