The beds were comfortable enough and everything was clean, booked as just a place to sleep and it did the job. There were a couple of strange features; like the 'swimming pool', a wipe clean remote and the switch which seemed to turn the bathroom into a tanning room?

Have to say our stay was ok until I made the mistake of leaving a new pair of damp shorts on the windowsill. I forgot about them - they were new so weren't a part of my wardrobe - and checked out. Called a day later and was told that they weren't in lost & found. I asked if they... More

We had a nice stay at the Sunset Inn during the busy summer season. The rooms are spacious and clean, although they are starting to show their age. The free wifi was a nice and useful amenity, allowing me to work remotely without any problems. Breakfast was included with the room but it was nothing special, so we decided to... More

Last minute booking, but room was big, clean, and more adequate than I expected. Complete with fridge and microwave. I would stay here if you want a no nonsense comfortable nights rest. We stayed at red lion in eureka and it wasn't as nice as this.

What a bad experience this was. First, they didn't make our beds nor change the towels which were thin and on the cheap side. Then, when I was looking for my book that had dropped down into the headboard, I found somebody's shirt. This was more evidence that they barely clean the place. The cost was high $490.00 for 2...

We stayed at the Sunset Inn during mid May on a Saturday 3 events were occurring locally. Reservations check in was simple. The Room had a comfortable bed and was clean feeling. Midget fridge and Microwave for storing leftovers. Shallow short tub not for tall folks. Low quality shampoo and conditioner for a town that is full of local vendors.... More

This was the first place we stopped at coming down from San Fran and were thrilled that their rooms have 2 queen size beds as we are traveling with 2 sons. It's very close to the beach and there's a great pizza place across the street. The beds were very comfortable and it's clean. Our room was just down from... More

Budget-friendly motel on the west end offers clean, spacious rooms with all the basic amenities you need for a comfortable w'end stay. Living about 45 mins away in the SJ, me and the good egg had been looking for a simple beach crash pad for when we just don't feel playing Mario Karts on 17 driving home at night or... More

Great hotel to stay if you don't want to be right near the beach. Clean, quiet, close to UCSC, resturants and major attractions. The hotel is on the main street but pretty quiet for the main road, it has clean, comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, towel change daily, microwave, coffee maker, and mini fridge. There is a complimentary breakfast but it... More

This is a very clean, pleasant hotel in a good area close to some of the best bakeries in town (Kelly's Companion, Iveta), markets (Safeway and New Leaf) as well as good Mexican, Chines, Pizza, Thai and other restaurants and great Donuts (Ferrells). Natural Bridges is very close and a beautiful beach. Alex at the front desk is very pleasant,... More
