“Fine for me...BF not so much”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

We wanted a getaway from SF. I found this sweet little place on the internet and got a good price for a queen room with a jacuzzi and fireplace. It it is spotless and Barbara and the cleaning staff are all really kind and friendly. The place is not at all touristy and it is located away from the town and other hotels. One morning we saw seven deer of varying sizes crossing the road going to the tender grass at the cemetery! Cons are that the rooms are really small and there is no place to set anything down. One chair. No place to have a snack, but they do have a small fridge and a coffee maker. And there is a table and two chairs on the small porch. I found the place cozy and delightful. My BF wanted a small table in the room. He also found the noise from the room above to be a problem. I think we had the only room in the place with a unit upstairs. I say good price, cozy romantic getaway. BF not so much.

Room Tip: Don't get 118 it is the only one with guests above, if you are sensitive to sound. I slept fine...

Great quite location, near the lighthouse on the tip of the peninsula.
I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful.
Originally booked in for two nights for a conference I stayed for 7 nights as I was very pleased with the quality, decor and cleanliness of the room.
A very nice room for the price I would be happy to stay here again.

We stayed only one night at the Sunset Inn but it was completely satisfying. The room was beautifully appointed, spotless, and the manager Barbara couldn't have been any kinder to us.
We felt like we had been away much longer than a day, and the Sunset Inn, not to mention its proximity to so many beautiful sites, had everything to do with it.

Room Tip: We brought food for breakfast and used the good-size refrig in the room to keep it fresh.

Perfect location, off the beaten path but still close enough to everything. We were in Pacific Grove with family for my parents' 60th anniversary. The rooms were more like little cottages, clean and comfortable. We could walk to the beach going one direction and to downtown Pacific Grove going the other direction. The complimentary wine and appetizers in the evening was a nice touch. Barbara, at the front desk was friendly and helpful, good recommendations for dinner.

Room Tip: Some rooms seemed bigger than others, wouldn't hurt to ask about larger rooms when making your r...

outstanding location near the lighthouse on the tip of the peninsula. very quiet neighborhood with almost no traffic, no sidewalks and almost a country feeling. slightly off the main road and away from the tourist car and walking traffic. ideal if you want little peace and quiet. we saw deer grazing across the street. 5 minute walk to the beach for spectacular sunsets. recommend for a romantic get away. property a little dated, and looks like a renovated motel, but it's clean, and there's helpful barbara at the front desk. would return without a doubt.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Sunset Inn. The furnishings were very nice, the amenities were excellent--what I would have expected at a higher end hotel. Great coffee, nicely appointed bathrooms, shutters that cut out noise, very clean wood floors, and a fireplace. And all at a very affordable price.
The Inn is within walking distance of the ocean and not far from downtown Pacific Grove. It's in a quiet, wooded neighborhood without a sense of being a commercial property. We hope to stay there again in the future.

We were looking for a place to stay in Pacific Grove for a quick stop down the coast. Staff was friendly, the rooms are small, but cozy. It felt like we were staying in a friend's guest room. Updated bathroom fixtures and clean, Although the room was a little stuffy, it was easy to air out. It's a quick walk to the shore. No frills, but suited our needs well.
