Over the summer, my girlfriend and I vacationed in the Pacific Grove area for a couple days. The area had many available options for us to stay in, but we ended up choosing the Sunset Inn based off a friend's experience. Very honestly, I could not be happier with our stay. The rooms were very nicely furnished, comfortable and, above... More

This is our second time staying at this lovely inn, and certainly won't be our last. The location simply cannot be beat-- the ocean and town main street are just short strolls away. Just like last time, the staff was so friendly and helpful. The manager, Michael, provided us with great restaurant recommendations and made all of our reservations again.... More

The Sunset Inn remains my family’s favorite vacation spot of all time! I know I sound like a broken record, but this place really is the best. My husband and I have never slept better and felt more at home than when we are staying in the comfort of the Sunset Inn. We are really sensitive and picky when it... More

Decided to stay in PG rather than Monterey, so we could be close to beaches. Lovely peaceful location! Walking distance to beaches and the Monarch Sanctuary. Fire pit wasn't working that night, which was a bummer. Room was very spacious and clean. Pick Room 212 as it is adjacent to the Accessible room, which is rarely booked per management. No... More

Our greeting was warm and friendly. The clerk was informative and told us what to expect from our visit. Our room was spacious and included a king bed and fireplace. The shower while a nice stone finish did not make up for the black mold growing on the formerly white paint in the windowsill area. Perhaps the part of the... More

The location and the price make this a great hotel, but the accommodations were excellent as well. Not only are you about a block from the beach, but you can hear the waves from the room.

This hotel was really good. We were there nichts. To the coast with it's breathtaking views it was yours a 10 minutes. The breakfast was small but it's what you get in the US. I liked it. Sufficient water pressure in the shower. Very clean. Good bed. Well kept.

Had a nice visit, no problems booking. Had a small issue with the room but they resolved it. Very clean and relaxing room. Nothing over the top, but good value for the money. Very short distance to the ocean (no ocean views). Would recommend staying here.
