“Quiet & Great Value”
Reviewed 28 October 2011

Our Stay was Oct 2011, we have stayed here 3 times in last 2 years. We got the room with the jetted Tub, and the rates were reasonable. I Love the Quiet area around Hotel, especially after dinner, I sat outside and could clearly hear the ocean surf a block away. The Only real complaint we had , was the Rooms we stayed in, needed screens on windows. Some windows open "outward", the others were sliding that could use some screens. That Nice cool ocean air, would be a shame not to let it into our room, without the flying insects attracted to the indoor lighting and flat screen TV. Barbara at the Front Desk is Soooo Nice, and made our check in/out very pleasant to say the least. The Continental Breakfast could have more choices other than Bagles, which were very hard to slice in the Bagle Slicer. Overall A Very Nice Place to stay.

My wife and I stayed at the Sunset Inn in Pacific Grove CA for 3 nights in early October, 2011. We wanted a place that was outside of busy, crowded Monterey but close to its attractions. The Sunset Inn was that place. It had the additional bonus of being a block away from the ocean and the famous lighthouse. Our room was clean and comfortable. Barbara, the manager, was unfailingly helpful and cheerful. The only problem, a minor one for us anyway, was the relatively slim continental breakfast fare. And we mentioned to Barbara that when we ran the shower the bedroom wall behind it got damp--evidently the shower needs a vent. But overall, we fully recommend the Sunset and are glad we chose it.

Overall it was a nice place to stay but there were a few issues that would encourage me to look for somewhere else next time. The beds were uncomfortable, there was a refridgerator in the room that was very noisy, the rooms were small and the bagels at the continential breakfast actually has some mold on them. Still good value for what you get!

Two thumbs up!
Our stay was in October 2011 for three nights. Love the fact that it is close to Monterey Bay Aquarium, cannery row shops, and Pacific Grove downtown restauraunts; but away from the busy crowds. Like the wood floor in the room and sitting area under small rectangular high windows. The shower with pebble stones flooring and tropical rain shower head is a bit funky and very fun to me. Property is kind of spartan but clean. InnKeeper Barbara has the warmest smile and tone of voice; responded to our request for additional set of towels swiftly.
I love to invite my grown children to spend an out of town vacation there with us.

Spent two nights at the Sunset in on a quick west coast getaway. Was very pleased with both the cost and the accomodations themselves. Very clean and no problems whatsoever. Great value.

Barbara, the manager, was very helpful and we look forward to returning.
