“Amazing place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

What a fantastic weekend we had at the Cayucos Sunset Inn. The staff was *so* kind and helpful, sweet to our kids, very accomodating. The food is *lovely* and they met my and my son's gluten free requirements easily and gracefully. Cayucos is a terrific throwback town, slow and sweet, perfect for the kids, we just played at the beach and wandered around and found great food and great people. We stayed in the Bali Suite and it is a *lot* of space - plenty for the kids and for my husband and I to still enjoy the ambiance... and its well soundproofed. The jacuzzi tub and "rain shower" were relaxing for all of us.

Room Tip: The upstairs suites seem a lot bigger and have really nice views.

We the most wonderful time here! Cayucos is a little hidden gem along the PCH in California. The owners were so charming, complete with breakfast company and wonderful room. Gave us lots of suggestions for things to do and seemed genuinely pleased to own the place. Would definitely recommend!

My wife and I stayed in the Sunset Room for the first three nights of our Honeymoon. The room was perfect, the views were fantastic, and the service was amazing. Waking up to wonderfully cooked sweet and savory breakfasts every morning (which we shared) and just using the fantastic room with great views from the balcony. The town was small and fun, but still close enough to Morro Bay to drive for a great dinner. My only complaint originally, we that we had to book the room for a three night minimum ... after staying the first night, we were glad to have two more to enjoy.

Our arrival at Sunset Inn was the beginning of a totally awesome experience for us. First, we were greeted by the most wonderful woman, welcoming us to the Inn. She took us to our beautiful and fully equipped, luxurious room. We were very impressed with the seperate sitting room having its own tv and fireplace. The master bedroom was spacious and oh so cozy! Another fireplace, wet bar, refrigerator, sitting table and chairs and tv were arranged to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. The private jacuzzi bath tub in our room was the ultimate experience for us, never having this before, we will return to the Inn just for this feature!! The balcony overlooking the towns main street and ocean is very refreshing and a great place for morning coffee or evening cocktails, or simply to watch the small town in action. We also can't say enough about the hospitality that the Inn offers, the breakfast in the dining area, wine and cheese, milk and cookies and fresh flowers, all this comes with your reservation. The town of Cayucos and the Sunset Inn are wonderful places to visit. We came for the Polar Bear Swim and the elephant seals up the coast in San Simeon. We highly recommend the Sunset Inn and we will definately stay here again!!

Sometimes you may be scared of going to the places that you don´t know, visiting a region where you are not able to tell whether one hotel is better than other. I know it. And because of that I can say that Cayucos Sunset Inn is the right choice!
Everything from booking the hotel room to paying was incredibly easy. The staff was helpful, knowledgeable and I more felt like part of one big family than the hotel guest. Honestly, the only thing that I found difficult here was to leave after some time! And I am not yet talking about the feeling from the stay itself !!
Yes, you can really live like a king, that´s at least how I felt in their incredibly comfortable bed or in my big private jacuzzi in the room. Or sitting on the balcony and watching the ocean. Also they treated me like a king when it comes to food. When I came down to the dining room and ate my breakfast, I could not be happiest. The evening wine tasting was just a cherry on top. And I could go on and on. Seriously, if anyone will ever happen to look for a room in this part of the California, choose this place.

This place has such a cozy and magical feeling that really completes a visit to the Central Coast. They've created an atmosphere that makes you feel like you're a guest at someones home, but you're waited on like royalty! After going out to dinner at a delicious spot recommended by their staff, we returned to our room where fresh milk and cookies were waiting! We had an ocean view, fireplace, jacuzzi tub, and the most comfortable bed. Come here if you're looking to get away from it all! It's a truly magical place to be. There's no where else like it in the area!

Room Tip: They all have a good view ... but the corner room is the best!

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of days last week. This place is more than a hotel or B&B. It's more a blend of the best of each. The rooms are hotel like. The bed linen is possibly the best I've seen even at hotel costing many times more. This is more than staying in a room in someone's house.
The owners are on site and incredibly informative, as are the welcoming staff.
We live in Santa Barbara, and come this way often, so it's not as if we didn't have an idea of what's in the area, but Lisa and John made every day memorable.
