“Nice, basic hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The hotels around this area are super pricey so The Sunset Inn fit our budget. We were a little skittish since some of the reviews were bad. I think many of the reviews involving noise happen in the summertime. Our stay was pleasant. It looked like the hotel was recently renovated so the rooms were very clean and "new" looking. Overall, pleasant stay.

I really enjoyed my visit to the Sunset in Pacific Grove. The location is simply perfect, close to the beach, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and close to a wide variety of day trips. The rooms were comfortable and the gas fireplace and spa tub provided the perfect end to each day.

Room Tip: Definitely go with a spa room with a fireplace.

This place turned out to be so much better than what I expected. Great price, great location. My room was spacious and the jetted tub was terrific. I agree with some of the other reviews, this is a great place for couples rather than families. I am definitely coming back here.

I wanted to like this hotel. The staff was friendly, the room was clean, but the walls were very thin. By very thin I mean I was woken up in the middle of the night by someone snoring in the next room. The next morning I could clearly hear a couple talking. They sounded like nice people, but at 6 am I was not happy to be listening in. I live in a city and am used to ambient noise, but this was over the the line of poor construction and insulation.

This hotel had a great location, close to the beach and within 10 minute of the attractions in Monterey. I was pleasantly surprised with our hotel room! Our room was decorated nicely and the bed was very comfortable! Only problem is that our shower kept leaking water after we used it, and the cleaning lady left a dirty gross towel in our bathroom.

We were in a King size room at the end of one of the buildings with a lovely fireplace that did help keep the room warm and provided lovely ambiance. We were at a conference at Asilomar on our wedding anniversary weekend so we wanted a comfortable spot for the evenings. Sunset Inn was just what we needed for a good price in Pacific Grove. Not too far from the many great restaurants in town & walking distance to the beach & lighthouse. Never got to use the jacuzzi tub - maybe next time!

Room Tip: End room was nice & quiet.

I really loved the feel of this place; it is quaint, charming, and our room was very spacious. We were only there for one night, but I would definitely like to come stay again and get a room with the jacuzzi tub. The rain shower was nice, but not as nice as a jacuzzi would be. Plus the bed was huge and really, really comfortable. A few other plusses are the fireplace, a nice tv, and great staff.

It is just a short walk from the beach that has a lot of walking trails. I kind of like that it is secluded from the tourist spots, but just know you will have to drive or bike to get anywhere, such as restaurants and tourist attractions. I think this is definitely most suited for couples, not really a family place.

Room Tip: Go for the jacuzzi tub rooms!
