Sunset Inn is located at a great location, just a few minutes walk to Asilomar State Beach. Room was clean and pleasant with a fireplace. Rishi, the general manager, was very customer focused and was quick to replace a power cord in my room that wasn’t working right. There was continental breakfast available. Happy overall with the experience!

Very friendly and accommodating staff. Especially Roberto! The accommodations were very nice and comfortable. My daughter and grandchild enjoyed their stay. Too bad they couldn’t stay longer. Next time we will.

The staff, the location, the room, and the location were exceptional. A block from the beach, 5 minutes from very good dining in Pacific Grove, and 15 minutes from Carmel. I’d have to pay 3X the price to do any better. That said, next time we will book direct to get the very best price. And there will be a “next time”.

We can't say enough good things about the Sunset Inn! Rishi and his team make you feel at home and understand the meaning of hospitality. They provide a nice continental breakfast with great coffee you can enjoy on picnic tables near the firepit or in your room. The rooms are clean, nicely decorated, and spacious. As others have mentioned, it's a short walk to Asilomar Beach and about a mile walk (uphill) to the shops and restaurants on Lighthouse Avenue. We're so happy we found this gem!

This is a great place to stay for a quiet visit to Pacific Grove. It's in a wooded area within walking distance of the coast trail, about 5 minutes drive from the shops and restaurants on Lighthouse. The owners were friendly, the room was clean and spacious with a nice, dust-free hardwood floor. Recommended.

What a beautiful location. The rooms are absolutely clean and we enjoyed our stay. We had such a wonderful weekend getaway. Just a short walk away, and you will be right in front of the ocean. We will be coming back very soon.

The management and staff of this establishment are extremely helpful. Rishi went out of his way to ensure that we had everything we needed. It is a short walk down to the ocean where you can walk the beach paths south or north, and about a mile into downtown Pacific Grove where there are many great restaurants and shops. Our room was very clean and serenely decorated. A nice patio in front with lots of colorful flowers. Snacks and beverages available all day in the lobby.

We enjoyed our visit very much. The owners are super friendly and make you feel very welcome. Our room was very clean and just a five minute walk to the beach. We like how the rooms are like little cottages. Our first night was very quiet. The second night we could hear water running, not sure if that was a neighbor taking a late shower or what but we would still consider staying here again.

I really appreciated how friendly the staff was at this cute motel. It's only a couple of blocks from the Monterey Bay trail and about a mile from quaint downtown Pacific Grove. The room was well appointed with a mini refrigerator, fireplace, and all the essentials. I liked the fact that I could get my tea water from the office machine at night and morning.
