Great location! Front desk service was awkward but they were friendly. Their credit card machine was down for the weekend so we have to wait til Monday for any charges to be made. Continental breakfast came with donuts, fruit, yogurt, and cereal. The room was decent. My only complaint is that The bed and pillows were so uncomfortable. Thin walls...

room smelled of mold and mildew.. Couldn't get the windows to open. Bathroom fixtures were a nightmare. No counter space. Interior paint job had been done with a broom. Jacuzzi tub leaked. Free breakfast was a joke. pillows were useless.

Room was very nicely appointed, gas fireplace was a nice touch. Room & bathroom were spotless, shower was huge. One block from beach and lighthouse - great location. Off-street parking was convenient. Only downside - the "complimentary continental breakfast" was shockingly poor/chintzy... given the high quality and attention paid to the rooms.

Initially got into town late, did the usual check in and went to my room. Didn't notice at first, because of the long trip to pacific grove. When I awoke I find not one not two but 4 pubic long pubic hairs in different locations in the bathroom. One in the sink, one on a towel, and two in the...

It was perfect for a quick get away with the kids. Small quaint rooms with fireplace. Nice short walk to the ocean. Great location! Limited continental breakfast, but nice little fire pit out front. Wildlife all around including deer! We will come back again!

As befitting its name, Sunset Inn in Pacific Grove is bright and cheery. It's a five-minute walk from beautiful ocean scenery and a short drive to shops and restaurants. It's very clean, the rooms are roomy and immaculate, the gas fireplaces are delightful and the staff is friendly and helpful. The Continental breakfast is sparse -- coffee, tea, pastries, packaged...

We only stayed one night. The staff was friendly. Sorry I don't remember their names we were there the night of 2/25/17. When we are back in the area again we will look into booking this location again.

we liked staying here for location but not ocean front. The bed was comfortable. We recommend turning off the heater before going to bed, it makes many metallic click click each time it comes on and goes off. The breakfast was very light, just a couple of dried up doughnuts, a few green tiny apples, and instant oatmeal. We suggest...
