“Hidden Jewel In Pacific Grove”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

Sunset Inn is cozily nestled in Pacific Grove. We had a wonderful visit. The Inn was immaculate and tastefully decorated and had excellent service. We were made to feel with at home and have a lovely stay. I would highly recommend Sunset Inn for a getaway. It is very reasonably priced, near restaurants and other activities on the Monterey coast.

Room Tip: We had a king with a fireplace. It was comfortable and beautifully decorated. Very cozy.

The updated Sunset Inn was a pleasant surprise. Price was good. Great location, decent Continental Bk., Nice fireplace (once room was warm it stayed that way), flat screen TV. Wish there would have been a chest of drawers. Very clean. Quiet. Very nice and helpful manager, Barbara. My only complaint is the WiFi wasn't very good, had issues my smart phone, which is probably caused by the area not the Inn. We will definitely stay again!

Great Place! Very close walk to Asilomar State Beach and walking trail. Can't wait to go back. The staff was very friendly. We had a problem with our fireplace the first night and was moved next door to a nicer room. Continental breakfast was satisfactory. Will definitely stay there again when I go back to Pacific Grove.

A nice price for a nice little room in Pacific Grove. Good quiet location. Smaller room but all the space we needed. Very clean and the service was friendly. Breakfast very basic bagels, coffee,tea, yogurt, instant oatmeal, etc. Neat bathroom. We were happy we found the Sunset Inn.

Extra nice walk-in shower. When leaving, I left my wallet on the bed after leaving a tip for the maid service. I returned about 10 minutes later and my wallet had already been turned in to the office and they had called me. Confirmed my positive impression of this lovely place. I will definitely return!

We stayed in a room with king size bed and fireplace. Room was very clean, bed comfortable. Breakfast choices were limited, but certainly adequate, e.g. bagels, instant oatmeal, yogurt, coffee, orange juice. Great location within easy walking distance of Point Pinos Lighthouse and Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Course. It's a beautiful area. Our only complaint was that the outside porch light is on a sensor and stayed on all night, pouring more light into the room than we like. We could have solved that problem by getting out of bed and unscrewing the bulb, but we were too lazy. So you know it wasn't a big deal. We will come back!

We took advantage of an off-season special to enjoy a long weekend on the coast: what a treat to find the Sunset Inn! The grounds and buildings are well-maintained and have had a wonderful "face-lift." It looks like the inn started life as an old cottage-style motel, and has been re-modeled into cute rooms with vaulted ceilings and enlarged bathrooms. Our room was spacious, clean, and relaxing.

Barbara, the hostess, was very gracious and helpful. At Barbara's recommendation, we tried An Choi for dinner. The restaurant is within in walking distance and the food was wonderful (great homemade peanut sauce!). Although the inn serves bagels, yogurt, and oatmeal for breakfast (which we did enjoy one morning), at Barbara's suggestion we tried Toasties - great eggs benedict and olallaberry waffle!

The inn isn't pretending to be something it isn't. It's just a nice, clean, well-maintained, comfortable place to rest...in a good location and with friendly, helpful management. We are already planning a return trip with a larger group of friends.
