The Sunset Inn is in a good PG location, in a quiet spot in Asilomar area, one long block from the most beautiful ocean coast around - we are runners and always take nice long runs along the coast starting out from the hotel. Its also an easy short drive or medium walk of maybe 1/2 mile to downtown PG....

The location is perfect for us. Very close to the Pacific Grove Golf Course. Also close to restaurants and the beach. Late afternoon you can walk on the trail next to the beach and see deer and a beautiful sunset. This was our third stay and there will be a fourth......

We stayed at the Sunset Inn for 3 nights, and would definitely return again. I was expecting a nice place based upon the reviews I had read, but it far exceeded my expectations. First, the location is beautiful in a quiet residential area near Asilomar, and is so close that you can hear the ocean from the property. The exterior...

Over the summer, my girlfriend and I vacationed in the Pacific Grove area for a couple days. The area had many available options for us to stay in, but we ended up choosing the Sunset Inn based off a friend's experience. Very honestly, I could not be happier with our stay. The rooms were very nicely furnished, comfortable and, above...

This is our second time staying at this lovely inn, and certainly won't be our last. The location simply cannot be beat-- the ocean and town main street are just short strolls away. Just like last time, the staff was so friendly and helpful. The manager, Michael, provided us with great restaurant recommendations and made all of our reservations again....

The Sunset Inn remains my family’s favorite vacation spot of all time! I know I sound like a broken record, but this place really is the best. My husband and I have never slept better and felt more at home than when we are staying in the comfort of the Sunset Inn. We are really sensitive and picky when it...

Decided to stay in PG rather than Monterey, so we could be close to beaches. Lovely peaceful location! Walking distance to beaches and the Monarch Sanctuary. Fire pit wasn't working that night, which was a bummer. Room was very spacious and clean. Pick Room 212 as it is adjacent to the Accessible room, which is rarely booked per management. No...

Our greeting was warm and friendly. The clerk was informative and told us what to expect from our visit. Our room was spacious and included a king bed and fireplace. The shower while a nice stone finish did not make up for the black mold growing on the formerly white paint in the windowsill area. Perhaps the part of the...

The location and the price make this a great hotel, but the accommodations were excellent as well. Not only are you about a block from the beach, but you can hear the waves from the room. The management was very friendly (if you are lucky you will meet Bob, the neighbor, who can provide the best must-see advice) and the...
