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. What makes this one stand out is the very friendly new owner & service at the front desk. The rooms are all updated and I love the stone floors and shower in... More

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

They are on the propety everyday making sure the focus is on the customer. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We had a king bed, fireplace (run by thermostat), 42" Vizio TV, rain head... More

Hi Pranay T. I would first like to apologize for the experience you had while checking in. I would also be upset if this had this happened to me and I completely understand your frustration.
