The Sunset Inn is a well kept, nicely decorated bungalow property. The room was larger than i expected (nice) and well appointed. Thankfully Mgmt had a fan in the room per my request as it was rather warm. The continental breakfast was a lovely presentation of chocolate croissants, Danish, Yogurt, Coffee & Tea, and a nice jug of iced water.... More

The Sunset Inn was by far the nicest place we stayed on our trip through Southern California. Much nicer than big hotel chains. The owner was at the front desk and was very friendly and accommodating. The whole place was recently renovated. Charming and quaint. Clean and comfortable. Would have been nice if there was a/c though.

Our room was clean and comfortable. We arrived late due to a delayed flight and the manager made sure that we would be able to access our room. The manager was friendly and very helpful w/ directions. Only stayed one night and this was a great value.

We were pleasantly surprised by the Sunset Inn. From the second we stepped into the quaint office we were greeted by the front desk clerk, as if we were old friends. The rooms were very cute with wood floors, comfy beds and updated bathrooms. The best part of all though was the firepit and patio! We sat there for hours... More

Our stay here was fab but good! Jarvis on the front desk was super lovely & helpful & gave us some local recommendations & advice. The room was clean, but there is no air-con - just a FIRE! Which you can't turn off! It's only on a low setting, but you really do not need a fire in August! The... More

The room was fine. The bathroom seemed to have been recently renovated, but really dated bedding is off-putting when you first go in. There is no air conditioning. They provided a fan to use, but still on the warm side (the staff said it was unseasonably warm for the area). Staff was very nice - helped us with dinner reservations.... More

We stayed at the Sunset Inn for 3 nights on our month-long Californian driving holiday / honeymoon / family holiday at Christmas after doing extensive online research and decided this was the best part of our holiday to choose a "budget" option and we were not disappointed. The Sunset Inn is by far the nicest motel I've ever stayed at,... More

My husband and I had the most relaxing time staying at the Sunset Inn in the Pacific Grove area recently. The front desk clerk, Aaron, went above and beyond making us dinner reservations each night, and helping us map out the best places to see during our vacation. My husband can be very hard to please when it comes to... More

Nothing special. Reasonable rooms, reasonable staff. They have a nice wine and cheese on only Friday and Saturday nights-- why not the others? Breakfast doesn't start until 8-- I am up at 6 and had no where to get coffee or a snack.

Comfortable rooms...great staff for check in and out. Bed comfortable Pillows were flat and not of any quality. Whoever does or did the plumbing for this place should go back to school. No faucet was aligned properly and the pipes not secured in the wall. At some point the rooms have been refurbished but not with any quality or craftsmanship.... More
