This is a very special getaway. The rooms are super clean! We've stayed in two different room, both king beds with a fireplace. Rooms are large and very light. We did take out from restaurants in town. The rooms have a good size table and chairs as well as a refrigerator and microwave. Very large rain head walk in shower. Coffee, juice, fruit and light breakfast items are available in lobby area.
This is a quite area of Pacific Grove with very little street noise if any. You're a block from the beach, the coastal walk, lighthouse and golf course. You can walk to Asilomar Beach and Grounds as well.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. Rishi, the manager, is amazing. There is a reason so many reviews mention him. Rishi makes you feel at home, he wants you to be happy and enjoy your stay. He checks in with you making sure all is well. We will be back again soon for another relaxing Pacific Grove get a way.

We had a wonderful stay at the Sunset Inn. Raffi was so accommodating and the room was spacious, super clean and comfortable. Great location - close to the beach and the village. There are many places to stay in Pacific Grove, but I think the size of the Sunset Inn kept the car traffic to a minimum. I also liked that the cars do not park head-in towards the rooms so you do not have annoying headlights in your room. They have a great coffee machine and light breakfast as well as snacks. We were delighted by all the extra touches and will definitely stay their again.

This was our first time to Sunset Inn.
We enjoyed a King Jacuzzi room. It’s obvious the management cares very much about the satisfaction of their customers. Rishi welcomed us and made us feel relaxed by his exceptional customer service. The grounds are adorable and so well cared for. I was so impressed by all of the beautiful flowers and was even more impressed they were able to keep them up so well as I enjoyed watching an adorable little fawn eating them for breakfast! The little fawn made its way all the way to the back of the property this morning at 9:00 a.m. A couple of small issues came up as they could at ANY hotel however once management was made aware of them they were fixed immediately. Our room was bright and clean, plenty of room. The jacuzzi tub was HUGE! Asilomar beach with its wonderful walking trails was a two minute walk from our hotel.
Rishi offered us snacks and juices upon our arrival and then in the morning we enjoyed fresh coffee and individual wrapped pastries. There were plenty of light continental breakfast choices. Also, a Keurig, microwave and a refrigerator in the room.
Parking was no problem. Parking lot was safe and well lit.
We will definitely stay here again.
Also, try Vivolo’s Chowder house while in Pacific Grove. There was a nice table and chairs in our room to enjoy our takeout dinner at.
Sunset Inn follows all COVID-19 guidelines. All employees were in masks and plenty of hand sanitizer in the office for customer use.
Thank you Rishi and staff! We will see you again soon!

Took my high school junior for a remote school locale change. The room itself was clean and well kept, and the grounds equally cared for. A block walk from the beach and abundant deer sightings. Lucy’s has solid coffee and great outdoor seating 3 minute walk away. The major down side was construction on the street in front of the hotel 8-4, which was not noted on website and which was a fairly significant inconvenience sound wise. Before booking I would recommend calling and ensuring this has totally cleared from the street not just in front of the inn as it is loud in the rooms at front of property. Rishi was apologetic yet had I been aware, I would have booked elsewhere for the quiet and returns to Sunset at a later date.

I stayed in room 116 with one queen bed and a gas fireplace. It has a shower, refrigerator, single cup coffee maker and a small table with two chairs as well as a long (maybe 5 feet) bench type built in seating or putting your bags area under the window. Check in was easy and the room was super clean. Maybe a little dark since this room is between two other rooms so that is a benefit if you like dark for sleep and maybe a drawback if you plan to be there during the daylight hours. I really liked the location. It is nestled into a suburban area with other inns around. Took about 10 minutes to walk to Asilomar Beach State Park which has wonderful views and paths along the beach. Grocery stores, restaurants, and other stores are 5 to 10 minutes drive away. Central Monterey is about 10 minutes drive. The closes side of the 17 mile drive is about 5 to 10 minutes drive away. Very good price for a nice, tidy room in a good location. I would be more than happy to stay there again. I highly recommend Sunset Inn if you are looking to stay in the area.

We came here for 3 nights to celebrate our recent engagement. Rishi at the front desk was warm, inviting and very helpful. We had a minor plumbing issue the first day and they took care of it right away after we left the room for the day. I love to cook so we rented the only room with a full kitchen. We had all the basics (pots, plans, utensils, dishes, dish soap, sponge (though I always bring my own, new sponge so we didn't use theirs) to make breakfast, lunch and dinners on the nights we chose to stay in and enjoy the sunset from our balcony.

The room was spotless, the bed was comfortable, we loved the towels and enjoyed the jacuzzi. We didn't use the gas fireplace but it's nice it's there for cold days/nights.

We loved the central location and enjoyed the nearby Monday Pacific Grove Farmers Market where we got yummy organic produce and take-out dinner one night. I highly recommend it if you love farmers markets as much as I do.

We would stay in this room again and will recommend it to family and friends.

My fiancée booked a weekend stay a week in advance and all the rooms were almost sold out! Glad we grabbed one of the last vacancies. Rishi the manager was very nice on arrival and the check in process took about 10 minutes. The room we originally booked had an issue so he set us up on one of the inn rooms with its own patio. It was clean and had everything we needed. We loved the rain shower and the fireplace gave a cozy feel since we don’t dine in the middle of the pandemic. They offer juice, coffee, packaged pastries and yogurt in the morning. Supposedly there’s light refreshments in the evening as well but we were out.

Bed was comfy, had tons of pillows for those who like that. The fan (no AC) kept us cool through the night but wasn’t enough during the day. We mainly were out so it didn’t matter much. Rishi allowed us a late check out which was hospitable of him and even showed us the other room layouts for next time. Can’t wait to return for a staycation at the Sunset Inn!

Wonderful location, about a mile out of town. Easy walk to the magnificent shore line of the Monterey Peninsula. Our suite was bright, sunny and clean and well maintained. Due to current COVID restrictions daily cleaning of our room was not offered although when we needed to empty trash or clean towels, service was readily available. The layout of the suite, in reality a big room, was awkward. The only place to enjoy the fireplace from was the bed. An early morning or evening fire was not possible to enjoy in that all of the seating was over to one side so that you could not sit and read or drink a glass of wine and watch the fire. We would have appreciated more counter space in the bathroom and hot water took a long time to get to the room; both minor issues. Our Hosts were courteous and welcoming and fresh fruit and tea or coffee drinks were available as long as the lobby was open.
