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

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

The Inn is really close to the beach and a nice walking area. Quiet part of town. Only problem was that the bed was awful. I've slept in cheaper hotels with better beds. And since there aren't any chairs in the room we had you kind of count on the bed being decent. Cute room though. Very clean and the... More

Hi Danielle M., Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback for us and for the nice review on our location and condition of our rooms. I see you stayed here back in February. The Inn has changed ownership since that time and we have made (and continue to make) wonderful improvements. Some of these include several new beds.... More

Very comfortable room with a great shower and fireplace. A nice young manager named Michael who recommended a great restaurant for dinner, The Whaling Station, and suggested several interesting places to visit. I'm certain we will be staying there in the future.
