We stayed here two nights in May. We chose it based on the reviews and the fact that it was quite reasonable in price compared to other places in the area. The room was lovely and beautifully furnished with laminate floors. It was very spacious, clean and comfortable and the beds were very nice. We found the complex to be... More

Went to Pacific Grove to avoid the crowds of Monterey and was really pleased with Sunset Inn. The rooms are nicely appointed and the Italian marble bathrooms are beautiful. The Inn is nicely kept up and have gas fireplaces and mini fridges. You can hear the ocean and our blocks from the beach and near a great lighthouse. The only... More

Very clean, nicely refurbished rooms, quiet and good location. Only negative is that there are no curtains, only wooden blinds which lets in a lot of sunlight. I am a light sleeper so I need it to be darker if I don't want to wake up at dawn.

We stayed that the Sunset Inn based on glowing reviews. The Sunset Inn did not exactly meet my expectations, but it was fine. The rooms were nice enough and the hardwood floors are a good touch, but as noted there is no AC so the rooms do get stuffy at night. We opened the windows some, but there are no... More

The hotel is centrally located between Carmel-By-The-Sea and Monterey. Each room in the hotel has been remodeled in warm and inviting colors. You could detect a lingering, musty smell from the hotel’s past life, but this was easily overcome by opening the windows. Our particular room was right above the main office/breakfast area. If you aren’t getting up early, ask... More

This is where my husband took me for our honeymoon, and I couldn't ask for anything better. The bed was very comfortable, and there was a gas fireplace in the room. The showerhead was placed high (this is such an important little detail to tall people!) and the bath had jets in it. Breakfast was simple, but fresh and delicious:... More

A fabulous little gem; so close to the beach, private and clean accommodation; affordable for such a great coastal town!

Sunset Inn is a block from the old lighthouse, a block from the town golf course, and a block from the scenic ocean drive. It's quiet, which is exactly what we wanted. Deer and racoons populate the area. The suite is one very large room with a gas fireplace (it's cool at night). The walk to Pacific Grove eateries is... More

We stayed for three nights in mid July, and were visiting the area to take a day trip to hike in Big Sur, go whale watching and see the aquarium in Monterey, and see Carmel and do more hiking on the coast (Point Lobos SP). We prefer staying in smaller, quieter places off the beaten tourist track, and were very... More
