We stayed here for 3 nights during our westcoast-trip. Our stay was really fantastic and we enjoyed the Time in Monterey. Our room was clean and comfortable. The stuff was very friendly and helpful. If we will come back to Monterey anytime we will definitely come back to the Sunset Inn :) Greetings from Germany

We loved the tranquil location in Pacific Grove -- away from the crowds and immersed in nature. We also loved the fit pit both during breakfast and in the evening. We would love to come and visit again!

We loved staying at the Sunset Inn. The proprietor of the inn was very outgoing and was attentive to meeting our needs. The rooms are very quaint, roomy enough for 2. The beds are comfortable, the bathroom has a nice rain shower and there was sufficient storage. There is no A/C but the nights were cool and the days comfortable.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while driving from San Francisco down the coast road. All of the staff were very friendly and the room was spacious, very clean and very comfortable. I would certainly recommend this if you are looking for something in the area.

Nice rooms with a gas fireplace. Very friendly staff and a light breakfast included. A good value for a quiet place to stay in Pacific Beach. It is near the ocean and lighthouse, and the commercial district of Pacific Grove is just five minutes away.

Great location right between Carmel and Monterey in Pacific Grove. Within walking distance of beach. Nicely appointed, good size, private. Nice front desk staff. Hardwood floors are nice and seem cleaner option than carpet. There was a little noise from the neighboring unit which prevents this rating from being a 5.

We spent one night at the Sunset Inn and found it to be a great option. The staff couldn't have been friendlier and the rooms were a good size and very comfortable. It is out of the centre of Pacific Grove so there isn't an abundance of eating options within walking distance if this is important to you, but town... More

The Sunset Inn has charming, spacious rooms that are located in quaint cottages. The windows are shuttered and roll out. The walk in shower head sprays from the ceiling, all reminiscent of times long gone. However, every modern necessity is included..internet, large flat screen TV, small refrigerator, hairdryers, the works. The staff are all excellent, breakfast included was delicious. Where... More

A very comfortable and clean room in a peaceful location, which was just what we wanted. I enjoyed the breakfast too - a limited selection (donuts, yoghurts, apples & oranges) but it was lovely to eat out in the open sitting around the outdoor fireplace. We stayed here to visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium and booked through the very friendly... More
