I stayed in two other hotels in addition to the Sunset Inn on my recent travels to Cali...and I must say, those two pricier hotels couldn't beat the charm of this place. A block away from Asilomar Beach, so close to 17 mile drive/Pebble Beach, and the lovely downtown Pacific Grove...all contribute to this subdued setting, away from the crowds of Monterey. It was so quiet at night...you could hear the waves crashing on the rocky beach a block away. You can take a stroll on the beach at sunset, and just really cast aside stress for a stolen moment. Turn off your phone, your gadgets, and take it all in. It's nice not having to fight through crowds to get to the beach. The room, albeit not new, is easy to access (no long hallways, parking garages, elevators to contend with), felt fresh and inviting with warm colored walls, had a small fridge, a coffee maker, fireplace and recently updated bathroom. I loved the pebble mosaic floor of my shower. Overall, the interior felt very reminiscent of a coastal New England cottage. The only con, would perhaps be that the linens were gently worn (then again, that may contribute to the charm). I've had high maintenance moments in my life, particularly in my youth, where I wouldn't have considered this inn because it didn't have a grand view or atmosphere...but I'm glad I did. Absolutely no regrets, and I will certainly stay here next time I'm in the Central Coast.
