Reviewed April 17, 2014

We stayed in the Sunset Inn only for one night. The rooms were large and well furnished. The fireplace made it feel very cosy. Although we had the first room by the entrance, we were told, it's very quiet at night, which it truly was.
A couple of nags - the fridge was very noisy during the night, so we eventually had to unplug it, to sleep.
As the houses are wood, one can quite clearly hear the neighbours and in our case, we had a couple that kept arguing, so the stay was a bit uncomfortable due to that. Otherwise, very serene setting with walks nearby to the beach and light house. For a stop over I would recommend it for sure.

We had a wonderful stay during our three nights. The room was very quaint, cozy and clean. It was also very romantic. The only problem we had was that the fireplace didn't work in our room which was a bit disappointing.
We loved the location. It's a short walk from the water and rocky beautiful coastline. We even walked to it one morning to watch the sun come up.
Apparently, it bothers some people that there isn't a breakfast included but not us. There are plenty of wonderful places to grab breakfast a short drive away.
Overall, we had a wonderful time and would stay again.

Pros:
A pleasant stay. The room was large and clean with a comfortable bed. It was quiet and near the beach which was nice. Staff were pleasant and helpful. It is well placed for access to both Carmel and Monterey if driving. Reasonably priced in an area that tends to be pricey
Cons:
I had not realised that some rooms, including ours were upstairs and these stairs were quite steep. Trip Advisor says that a continental breakfast is included although having just checked the inn's website, this is not shown there. There is no breakfast provided and this was a definite negative for us as the inn is in a residential area.

The rooms here feel more like you are staying at a home rather than a motel. A few small buildings surround the parking lot in a quiet residential neighborhood. While we were there, there were very few cars that drove by, and overall it was very quiet. The rooms and bathroom are clean and nicely decorated, the shower was large and towels fluffy. The beach is one block away with great tide pools or just a place to sit and watch the sunset, harbor seals, and maybe a sea otter. This was our second stay and we would definitely go back if we are in the area again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our room at The Sunset Inn. A great deal and so close to the walking path on the beach. Very nice reception and thoughtful greeting. Room was very clean with a beautiful 2 person italian tile shower... Would highly recommend this quaint and cute place!

I visited the Sunset Inn for two nights. It's got a great location minutes from the beach. The room was clean and well-decorated, and the bathroom, with the ceiling skylight, was beautiful. You'll be greeted in the reception by a very friendly woman.
The Inn is a short distance to Carmel or Monterey. I'd highly recommend it.

This property shows how well an older design can be updated. The driveway and parking are done with pavers, making it quite attractive. The porches of the units have wooden seating, also attractive. The paint color, sort of a dark mustard, is somewhat unusual but really works. Our room was large, cozy, well-appointed. The bed/bedding very comfortable. Small refrigerator but no microwave. When we called to make a reservation we were directed to the web site and given a promo code that brought the price down to under $75 a night. The staff was very nice. The only issue was the shower, which couldn't be regulated to give a steady temperature that wasn't scalding or ice cold. The towels weren't quite as beefy as you'd expect. Lovely stay.
