Power was out on the entire street when we arrived, but they checked us in by flashlight, rooms were clean, good service easy walking to a killer coffee spot, pizza and a natural grocer. No pool but my kids had fun in the jacuzzi. Small fridge and microwave in the room were a good bonus.

This was our first time at Sunset Inn. I'd stay there again. The location is good and the rooms were clean and decent sized. It is within walking distance of restaurants, bars, grocery stores and the Santa Cruz Mountain Brewery so it scores points for convenience. The rooms are affordable for Santa Cruz.

My wife and one of our daughters were on a quick Spring Break trip down the coast from Oregon. This was our farthest overnight stay South before we headed home. We checked in to this hotel late and it was quite an adventure. We got our room key and went to our room and the beds were unmade and there...

Stayed one night. Staff was friendly and polite. Minor issues at checkin. No toilet paper or soap in room. Had to go to front desk and follow clerk to storage room. Back Wardrobe door not on track. Room clean. Wifi, television, fridge, microwave, heater/air conditioner all worked. Ad online indicated there was a pool, one reason I booked with them....

My family read the reviews for the Sunset Inn a few years ago (they were all very good) we found the reviews to be dead on! Since then we've been back several times each time finding something new and unique about the Inn: like it being right around the corner from Seymour Marine Discovery Center (a must tour very educational)!...

Pros: Car to door easy parking for unloading. Very spacious room with couch and desk. Bed comfortable. Room clean. Fridge and Microwave Reasonable rates comparatively. Cons: Nothing really bad, however I would suggest housecleaners not spray room so much with whatever they use because the smell stayed all night. Also, surface of shower/tub was unusually slippery. I would provide tub...

Rooms are basic+ (TV, coffeemaker,micro, fridge, cozy chair,...

I came here a few times now and I still love it. It's clean, comfortable, and the staff is great. I haven't had any troubles with the people here and it's in a convenient location. Also it's close to the beach and close to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk it's awesome and I recommend coming again or make it your go-to...

My husband and our toddler and baby stayed two nights here over Labor Day. The room was very clean. The mini fridge was handy and so quiet! The king bed was comfortable, but the pillows were not (bring your own!). The fold out sofa bed was saggy and didn't fold out properly, but my toddler didn't care; an adult would've...

I'm one of those people always looking for a deal but really wary of budget hotels. boy, was I pleasantly surprised. Staff is friendly and efficient. Really helpful. Room was spotless, new furniture, AC, cable, coffee machine and microwave. No burns in the carpets; fresh towels and even a small Jacuzzi outside. Is it fancy? No. But it's a great...
