We stayed in this motel for one night during our trip alone the route 1. The room was spacious, with a cosy fireplace, comfortable bed, good bathroom. The motel is situated in walking distance from the ocean shore. We strolled along the shore, and it was really spectacular, the 17 miles drive wasn't worth seeing after this stroll.

I spent four nights here when I was at a conference at Asilomar. It's in a nice quiet location, close to the beach and to Pacific Grove and Monterey, and there's plenty of off-street parking. My room, a queen with fireplace and jacuzzi tub, was spacious, and because it was upstairs, had a balcony with a nice view. I could...

This was our 2nd visit to Pacific Grove, first time to the Sunset Inn. I think we would stay again. The property is very attractive, and the room was lovely (we stayed in #100), albeit a little small. But it has been newly updated, so it feels fresh. The office hosts a "manager's reception" from 5-7, featuring coffee and wine...

Sunset Inn is a simple, but clean and friendly place. The office staff is especially cordial and the rooms are nicely decorated. The location is ideal since it is midway between Asilomar, a beautiful, natural conference grounds, and the charming community of Pacific Grove. It's also a short walk to the walkway along the coast. Walking through the neighborhoods of...

This is the second time we stayed here. We arrived late in the evening but management was kind enough to make arrangements for a late check in. We stayed in room 110. The room was clean and comfortable and the property well maintained. We did not have any issues with noise as some other reviewers had, but the property was...

The hotels around this area are super pricey so The Sunset Inn fit our budget. We were a little skittish since some of the reviews were bad. I think many of the reviews involving noise happen in the summertime. Our stay was pleasant. It looked like the hotel was recently renovated so the rooms were very clean and "new" looking....

I really enjoyed my visit to the Sunset in Pacific Grove. The location is simply perfect, close to the beach, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and close to a wide variety of day trips. The rooms were comfortable and the gas fireplace and spa tub provided the perfect end to each day.

This place turned out to be so much better than what I expected. Great price, great location. My room was spacious and the jetted tub was terrific. I agree with some of the other reviews, this is a great place for couples rather than families. I am definitely coming back here.

I wanted to like this hotel. The staff was friendly, the room was clean, but the walls were very thin. By very thin I mean I was woken up in the middle of the night by someone snoring in the next room. The next morning I could clearly hear a couple talking. They sounded like nice people, but at 6...

This hotel had a great location, close to the beach and within 10 minute of the attractions in Monterey. I was pleasantly surprised with our hotel room! Our room was decorated nicely and the bed was very comfortable! Only problem is that our shower kept leaking water after we used it, and the cleaning lady left a dirty gross towel...
