We started staying at the Sunset Inn about four years ago and up till now it has been great. This visit there were some simple things that need attention that can return the Sunset Inn to an Excellent rating again. And we will be checking Trip Advisor before our next trip to Monterey to see if the needed improvements have... More

We paid a great price for this lovely area near the Pacific so I am tempted to rate the Sunset Inn 4 stars, but I felt the room and experience was only average. The room felt dark and although there were some updated finishes the room and bathroom is not welcoming. My biggest complaint is not having ANY surfaces to... More

Well when I arrived I must have been given the oldest and most rented room #103. The fireplace did not work (clicking all night long), the bathroom window was broken and mildew was everywhere. I complained but customer service was lacking. I took pictures. Please look closely. I won't stay here again!

Wife and I stayed here one night on west coast fly and drive in April. We stayed in a simple room - no frills, great bathroom and comfortable bed. Easy access and parking. 10 minute walk to beach / park to wade in the Pacific and watch the seals.

Stayed here the beginning of November. The weather was perfect!! Stayed in a King fireplace room. I was impressed with the size and cleanliness of the room and property. The beach is a block away and I was able to take a most pleasant walk/run along the scenic boardwalk. My only complaint is that I didn't stay an extra night... More

Just stayed in a king w/fireplace and jetted tub. It was most pleasant in the area of the Sunset Inn. That ocean is beautiful about 1 block from the Inn. Liked the overall feel of the Inn. It was quiet which is always nice in a hotel and sometimes hard to have. I do have some complaints about the room... More

My husband and I were on a road trip from San Francisco to San Diego and needed a place to stay overnight on the way. Having seen the reviews for the Sunset Inn on TripAdvisor we decided to give it a go. In short I'll say this; the room was fine and the location was lovely...but the welcome made us... More

The Sunset Inn is a quaint little hotel just 1 block from the ocean. The rooms have hardwood floors and an open air with good space. The bathrooms are cutely decorated with a stone theme. My only complaint was the pillows were very firm, so if you like a soft or feather down pillow, bring your own. We would definitely... More

We stayed here for one night on the way from LA to San Francisco. We stayed in a deluxe room with the jacuzzi bath, even though it is a little more expensive it was well worth it. The room was homely with a good sized equipped kitchen and in a lovely setting. The host was very knowledgeable about the area... More

We stayed here one night and were very happy. We purchased two-days-for-the-price-of-one Aquarium tickets from Barbara, the manager. She was very helpful and gave us good information about everything we asked. The room was clean and quiet (and we went to bed very early). The location was great....a short ride to the aquarium and a short walk to the shoreline.... More
