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

This little Inn has lots of potential with nice grounds, some updated features of its rooms and a good location in PG. Room 115 has newer hard wood floors and a reasonably comfortable bed, but the bathroom and some of the window frames need work! The bathroom floor was filthy, had loose grout and needed to be re-grouted, the Jacuzzi... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Sunset Inn prior to playing some golf locally. We visit PG at least one a year and normally stay at another property but I wanted to try something different and selected the Sunset based on location and price. The room we selected was ideal for what we needed and my wife's initital... More

I stayed here with a group of friends from Europe. Everyone was pleased with their room. I had one of the lesser rooms but still felt satisfied. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was quite nice. Everything was clean. On the down side, there is no internal ventilation and it was warm so we had to keep the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at the start of our 19 day road trip. We found it to be in a nice quiet location and so close to pick up the coastal walk into Monterey. We had room number 118 at the back of the complex and it was very nice with a lovely Jacuzzi bath which we used... More

While on the surface this motel is fine, the minute the couple staying next to us entered their room, we knew we had made a poor choice. We could hear their voices, the shower, their movements. We were just glad they went to sleep early and were not very early risers. So it was doable, but if you don't want... More

This is a hard one to review. On the surface, everything was as it was presented. We had the 1 bedroom suite with the Jacuzzi. The bed was comfortable, the room clean, and the Jacuzzi worked great. But the room needed work on its fixtures. The handles were falling off the window in the bathroom, the shower was very limited... More

The rooms are fairly recently updated and comfortable. Free Wi-Fi If you cannot live with out it for a night or two. The sign says it has a Jacuzzi and that would have been really nice to use after driving for 61/2 hours, but there was not one there. BOO HOO. We were able to walk from the hotel out... More
