We've stayed at the Sunset Inn three times now (2005 and 2006, before the remodel, and September 2010) and we've never been anything but pleased with our experience. Even before the rooms got an overhaul, we were infinitely fond of this place. If nothing else, the location is a huge plus. Right next to the water, deer roaming around everywhere,... More

This Hotel is Cozy, Relaxed, Quiet & Comfortable. We spent the days out enjoying the beautiful weather & visiting family in the area. When we returned in the evening we felt as though we were returning home, to a studio condo. The quiet neighborhood location was perfect for walking only a block to the beach, lighthouse & public golf course.... More

We loved this place.. the room is so cute and the fireplace made it very romantic. My only drawback would be staying in an upstairs room. The floors are wood so we were trying to tiptoe around.. Recommend you request a ground level room. Very close to Cannery Row, Aquarium... down the street from the lighthouse and beach access.

Rooms are all different in size and shape and a bit in decor. Ours was lovely. Barbara at the desk was exceptionally helpful. We were having a bit of trouble with the fireplace and she called 10 minutes later to see if it was resolved and then came out to our room to make sure it was working properly. Bed... More

Sunset Inn is in a quiet area very close to the shoreline. The staff are friendly. The rooms are small but very comfortable. Only downside was the location is isolated - must drive for any meal other than the provided continental breakfast.

Sunset Inn is a well situated hotel, near a quite beach, in an area where wild deer roam around at night. The rooms are modern and quite lovely but the walls are quite thin and you can sometimes hear people in the next room. Not a biggie though. There are no views from most rooms. The clock radio had a... More

We loved everything about it! I have no complaints, the area was so beautiful and quiet. With both of us working so much this trip was exactly what we were looking for. The scene was great, check-in was so quick, no issues at all. The front desk woman, Barbara, was extremely helpful, we asked her for some dinner suggestions, not... More

When looking for a place to stay during the US Open at Pebble Beach, we happened to find the Sunset Inn. It is a quaint little place that is tucked away just minutes from the ocean, 17 Mile Drive, and everything else that Pacific Grove , Monterey and Carmel have to offer. It is cozy and well maintained. The fireplace... More

Firstly, do not use the online booking engine; unreliable. I booked one room and got confirmation for two reservations. So I cancelled one. 4 days before my trip, I was told both res were cancelled! No apologies from the management. They could only rebook me for part of my trip because they were "sold out" the last day. I found... More

Dear Guest, Only 1 reservation that was made in addition to its subsequent cancellation. Both reservation and cancellation were made on 1/24/10. So, as of 1/24/10 your reservation was canceled per your request. If you have a record of something different please contact the Inn. As for the housekeeping issue we are extremely apologetic for what transpired. Rest assured I... More

We've stayed at several different facilities in Pacific Grove, and this one has been the most pleasant. Just blocks from the shore and wonderful walks. The rooms were very clean and there was plenty of room. Perhaps the only complaint would be that the walls are a bit thin, so we did get more noise from the adjacent room than... More
