“Sunset Inn was perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2007

My husband and I stayed at the Sunset Inn over Labor Day weekend, and it was perfect! We stayed the first night in the Fleuris but upgraded to the Palais our second night. When we stay here again (which we will), we will definitely get one of the upstairs suites again- the private balcony and view is worth it. The rooms are decorated beautifully and the beds are wonderful, with 300 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets and feather everything. The two person spa tub is really large- both my husband (who's 6'4) and I fit very comfortably- and the rain shower with body washers is really cool. Everyone who works there was very helpful, and we borrowed movies from their DVD library while eating the milk and cookies they left at our door for bedtime!

We drove into Paso Robles and did some wine tasting, as well as spending some time in Morro Bay and walking around Cayucos. For food, we ate at Taco Temple in Morro Bay- SO good- and Hoppe's in Cayucos, which is one of the best restaurants I've eaten at, with an awesome wine list and knowledgeable servers. We had dessert one night at the Sea Shanty, which had good fish and chips and a huge dessert menu.

We can't wait to go back!

My wife and I visited Sunset Inn for a second time (we'd waited so long!) from Dec 27-Dec 29 as part of a five-night getaway up the California Central Coast. I warned my wife that the trip would start out on top and progress toward mediocrity. I was right!

We stayed in the largest suite, the Sunset Suite, which is 1100 sq ft of beautiful stained concrete and wood flooring, bright airy white blinds in the many windows with white bedding (amazing!) and a partial ocean view/street view large deck. The bathroom couldn't have been larger or more elegant... the two-room bathroom (2-person jacuzzi and double-sink on one side of the hall, two person rain shower and toilet on the other side) were about as big as the WHOLE ROOMS of our stays in Carmel and Santa Barbara! Add to that a huge separate sitting room and bedroom suite (which both had cable TVs and fireplaces), we were spoiled more than we could've imagined. Then there was the service... wine and cheese and artichoke dip in the early evening and a full cook-to-order breakfast (four choices!) the next morning... this included a fresh fruit bowl, juice, coffee, milk and scone... nothing was left out! We bumped into Lisa, the owner... she recoginzed us from two years prior! Adding to her warmth was Carly who greeted us, showed us to our room, made us reservations at Hoppe's down the street (fantastic!), served us breakfast... we hated to leave! As I write this, I'm already planning next year's Coastal Winter Trip... it will most definitely CENTER around Cayucos Sunset Inn!

PS: Cayucos is a perfect quiet beach town with Cambria and Hearst Castle to the north, Paso Robles to the Northeast, and Morro Bay/SLO to the south... all within a 30 minute drive!

My wife absolutely loved this place. I felt it was more like a fancy hotel than a bed and breakfast because of the exterior entrance to the rooms. We stayed in the sunset room. The beds were wonderful and the breakfast was excelent. The jacuzzi bath was very nice also. I would like to come back in when the fog lifts. I would suggest not going in June if you want to see the ocean.

I looooved this place. We reserved a junior suite, but were pleased when we arrived to be upgraded to a two-room suite, complete with two fireplaces, a jacuzzi and separate shower. Fantastic, absolutely the nicest by far that I've ever stayed in at any hotel, and ours looked exactly as pictured on their web site. The innkeepers have obviously taken great care in decorating and maintaining the inn.

The breakfast was good, sunset hour with wine and appetizers was great after a day at Hearst Castle, and cookies and milk, with Ferrer Rocher chocolates at bedtime were a nice touch. We had dinner one night at Schooners (so-so) and the other night at Hoppe's (very good).

As other reviewers mentioned, the Inn is on the street, and there are buildings between it and the ocean, so the ocean view is limited and we did not really use the spacious balcony.

the owners of this Inn really want your stay to be happy. I can thoroughly recommend this Inn, do ask for the Pacific view rooms, makes all the difference. Hoppe's for dinner or lunch should not be missed and the proximity to HEarst Castle is perfect.

We stayed four nights, two adults and two young children. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They arranged reservations and babysitting. The linens are exceptional, and the breakfasts are just wonderful - and filling. The afternoon wine and cheese and nightly cookies are all delicious. The only improvement would be if the inn were on the ocean, instead of the main street; however, the street was quiet at night, and we slept with the windows open.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in Nov 2004.
We stayed in the Sunset Suite. The room is very elegant with all the amenities you could want.
The wine tasting in the evening was great, the breakfast provide in the morning was terrific.
The chocolate chip cookies and milk delivered to your room at night was great. They offer a turn down service if you wish. The hospitality here is wonderful, they truly go out of their way to make sure your stay is special. They recommended Hoppe's for dinner and we ate their both nights and we were very pleased with our meals. We can't wait to return to this quite water front town and to stay at the Sunset Inn!
