My family spent four happy nights at the Sunset Inn in mid-July. Our two rooms were spacious and the bathrooms were large as well. We slept like locals with the windows open which let in cool evening air but also noise from neighbors sitting outside chatting. Ceiling fans would be a nice addition. The location is convenient to restaurants, shops,... More

Hi Wickersam62, Thank you so much for writing a good review and for staying with us. The location of the Sunset Inn is really nice and in close proximity to the ocean/beach, downtown Pacific Grove, Cannery Row, the Aquarium, the wharf, and Pebble Beach. I am so glad you had a great stay with us and we hope to see... More

My husband and I stayed in a room with a King bed and fireplace that was very spacious and lovely. Although the beds were very comfortable, the owner told us that they are upgrading to new pillowtop mattresses soon. The price for our room was an excellent value compared to similar places we looked at. Sunset Inn was in a... More

Hi Mommasloth, What a great review; thank you so much! We really enjoyed getting to know both you and your husband. I wish we had met earlier in your stay. It was so funny how many things we had in common. The world is truly a small place. As you do not live that far away, I am sure we... More

The innkeepers at Sunset Inn couldn't be more hospitable and the rooms are a comfort when the Pacific wisps of fog roll in from the gorgeous stretch of Asilomar beach a mere block away. Crave celebrated Carmel and it's white sand beaches? Sunset Inn and Pacific Grove golf, walking, dining and shopping complement the beautiful sandside stretches of view homes... More

We had a great stay at the Sunset Inn. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. The fireplace was a nice touch (although we didn't use it because of the outside temperature). The inn staff was helpful and nice. Located just a few blocks from the Pacific, so it's a great place to view the ocean and beautiful sunsets.... More

We and another couple spent 2 nights at The Sunset Inn. The location was good for us. I found our room to be spacious and clean. Our room, 101, was located close to Asilomar Blvd so we did get some street noise. The bed was not comfortable for us. It had lumps and dips and should be replaced. The pillows... More

You're planning that dream trip to the area, you are excited about the great restaurants, attractions, etc. But then you have to find a place to stay within your budget. In planning our trip to Monterey, affordable lodging was the most difficult to find. But then I came across Sunset Inn! To be honest, we took a gamble on staying... More

I have to admit that I was skeptical when I booked our stay. I am pretty particular about where I stay, especially when the family is traveling with me, and the rate in comparison to the chain hotels in the area seemed very economical. In all we could not have been happier. The rooms are wonderful, spacious clean and modern.... More

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!

Hi MEK85, Thank you for the positive comments. I see that you stayed here back in September of 2014. The property did sell in March of 2015 and many improvements have been made and continue to be made. This means your next stay with us should be even better! Have a great summer and we look forward to seeing you... More
