We stayed in the Sunset Inn only for one night. The rooms were large and well furnished. The fireplace made it feel very cosy. Although we had the first room by the entrance, we were told, it's very quiet at night, which it truly was. A couple of nags - the fridge was very noisy during the night, so we... More

We had a wonderful stay during our three nights. The room was very quaint, cozy and clean. It was also very romantic. The only problem we had was that the fireplace didn't work in our room which was a bit disappointing. We loved the location. It's a short walk from the water and rocky beautiful coastline. We even walked to... More

Pros: A pleasant stay. The room was large and clean with a comfortable bed. It was quiet and near the beach which was nice. Staff were pleasant and helpful. It is well placed for access to both Carmel and Monterey if driving. Reasonably priced in an area that tends to be pricey Cons: I had not realised that some rooms,... More

The rooms here feel more like you are staying at a home rather than a motel. A few small buildings surround the parking lot in a quiet residential neighborhood. While we were there, there were very few cars that drove by, and overall it was very quiet. The rooms and bathroom are clean and nicely decorated, the shower was large... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our room at The Sunset Inn. A great deal and so close to the walking path on the beach. Very nice reception and thoughtful greeting. Room was very clean with a beautiful 2 person italian tile shower... Would highly recommend this quaint and cute place!

I visited the Sunset Inn for two nights. It's got a great location minutes from the beach. The room was clean and well-decorated, and the bathroom, with the ceiling skylight, was beautiful. You'll be greeted in the reception by a very friendly woman. The Inn is a short distance to Carmel or Monterey. I'd highly recommend it.

This property shows how well an older design can be updated. The driveway and parking are done with pavers, making it quite attractive. The porches of the units have wooden seating, also attractive. The paint color, sort of a dark mustard, is somewhat unusual but really works. Our room was large, cozy, well-appointed. The bed/bedding very comfortable. Small refrigerator but... More

Quaint and comfy. Several small buildings house a few rooms each in an old-fashioned roadside inn that has been updated to modern standards. Much more charm than what you get in a chain motel. The fireplace was a nice touch (though it didn't work in my room) and the bed was comfortable. It is less than two blocks from the... More

I stayed one night at Sunset Inn and was quite pleased for the price I paid for with advance rate (<$100). The room was cozy with a large fireplace and large bed. The room was spacious with a mini fridge and coffee maker. As in other reviews, I also had an issue with the hot/cold shower faucet trying to maintain... More
