My husband and I had planned a one night stay during our CA vacation...booked here based on previous comments. Michael was very helpful before arrival in explaining the area, length of time to get places, etc. There has been (and still are) renovations going on. The place was clean, our room was great. We stayed in 108, King Bed, Fireplace,... More

Hi Audrahos, Thank you so much for taking the time to write us such a nice review. I'm glad you enjoyed 108, as it is one of my favorite rooms as well. It gets so much natural sunlight where it is located. I hope to see you again during your next visit here :) Michael More

We had a very pleasant and enjoyable stay. The room was clean and comfortable. Michael, the new owner, was friendly and helpful. A continental breakfast was served in the morning and wine and cheese was offered Friday afternoon. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

The beautifully decorated and eell maintained, tranquil cottage motel is close enough to everything, yet far enough away to give you the peace and serenity you may be looking for. Easy access to all that the area has to offer by foot, vehicle, or bike. The only reason this is not a 5 rating is because there was no TV... More

Hi BNeibert, Thank you for taking the time to write us a nice review. Our location is very peaceful and in very close proximity to both the ocean/beach and downtown pacific grove. We are also very close to Cannery Row/Monterey and the Pebble Beach entry gate, which a lot of people don't realize. I'm so glad you had a great... More

My partner and I decided to visit Pacific Grove to celebrate his 50th birthday. Never having been there before I had no idea where to stay. By a stroke of luck I found the Sunset Inn. The Inn is ideally located; I loved waking up in the morning for a quick walk to the ocean. Our room was charming and... More

We have spent many years vacationing at Pacific Grove and this is one of the best values that we have found. This cute and well-located property is better than ever with a recent re-model and caring and friendly staff. The beds are comfy, towels are fluffy and I love the rain shower head. I'd also like to mention wood floors... More

Excellent stay with great staff. Small issues were quickly addressed by the staff. The location was quiet and easy to find and the entire stay was perfect. 17 mile drive around pebble beach was very close and was beautiful! We will be back.

I checked out of the Sunset Inn earlier this week and had a very enjoyable stay. I work in Travel with hotels and tour them all the time.

The town of Pacific Grove is a delightful escape from the overly intense tourist mecca that is Monterrey -- particularly since the two towns are just a stone's throw away from one another. The Sunset Inn was the perfect place to stay. The extremely kind and friendly new owners are bound to make this "the" place to stay on the... More

Michael and the new crew that have taken over the Inn are fantastic. Very attentive and friendly. Wine and cheese cocktail hour in the evenings and a simple breakfast offering in the mornings, but the food in town is fantastic. There are local favorites serving a wide variety of delicious cuisine. Just ask the staff and they'll tell you. We... More
