We are a family of four (two kids 9 and 13) and we had room 101. We arrived in the evening after a long day at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Our room was clean, nice decor, and the front desk person (Aaron) was very helpful. Our room only had a double bed so he had only one blow-up bed set... More

Hi EastWestX, Thank you so much for taking the time to write us such a wonderful review! You mentioned so many of the things that make this such a special place. The wildlife are really fun to watch. There are not to many places where you can be such a very short distance to the busy Cannery Row and Aquarium... More

My wife and I had a wonderful 2-night stay at the Sunset Inn and we could not have been more pleased with the accommodations, especially at the price. The room was very spacious, recently updated and well maintained. We highly recommend this property!

My family spent four happy nights at the Sunset Inn in mid-July. Our two rooms were spacious and the bathrooms were large as well. We slept like locals with the windows open which let in cool evening air but also noise from neighbors sitting outside chatting. Ceiling fans would be a nice addition. The location is convenient to restaurants, shops,... More

My husband and I stayed in a room with a King bed and fireplace that was very spacious and lovely. Although the beds were very comfortable, the owner told us that they are upgrading to new pillowtop mattresses soon. The price for our room was an excellent value compared to similar places we looked at. Sunset Inn was in a... More

Hi Mommasloth, What a great review; thank you so much! We really enjoyed getting to know both you and your husband. I wish we had met earlier in your stay. It was so funny how many things we had in common. The world is truly a small place. As you do not live that far away, I am sure we... More

The innkeepers at Sunset Inn couldn't be more hospitable and the rooms are a comfort when the Pacific wisps of fog roll in from the gorgeous stretch of Asilomar beach a mere block away. Crave celebrated Carmel and it's white sand beaches? Sunset Inn and Pacific Grove golf, walking, dining and shopping complement the beautiful sandside stretches of view homes... More

We had a great stay at the Sunset Inn. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. The fireplace was a nice touch (although we didn't use it because of the outside temperature). The inn staff was helpful and nice. Located just a few blocks from the Pacific, so it's a great place to view the ocean and beautiful sunsets.... More

We and another couple spent 2 nights at The Sunset Inn. The location was good for us. I found our room to be spacious and clean. Our room, 101, was located close to Asilomar Blvd so we did get some street noise. The bed was not comfortable for us. It had lumps and dips and should be replaced. The pillows... More

You're planning that dream trip to the area, you are excited about the great restaurants, attractions, etc. But then you have to find a place to stay within your budget.

I have to admit that I was skeptical when I booked our stay. I am pretty particular about where I stay, especially when the family is traveling with me, and the rate in comparison to the chain hotels in the area seemed very economical. In all we could not have been happier. The rooms are wonderful, spacious clean and modern.... More
