This is our second visit to the Sunset Inn. Last year we chose it because of its top rating on Trip Advisor. It lived up to that rating. It is still a very nice place, but they need to do some work to keep up their rating. On the good side, the location cannot be beat for a motel in this price range. Just a short walk from Asilomar State Beach, on a pretty quiet street, and comfortable rooms.
But some examples of lack of attention to detail include the following. They have dropped their breakfast. It was just bagels and juice and coffee and rolls, but it was very convenient. There is no restaurant within walking distance. We brought breakfast supplies, but that meant a cooler, etc.
Our room (109) was nice, but up some covered stairs. The automatic lights over the stairs do not come on until around 8 pm, well after dark in the winter, making the stairs hazardous. If you are here in the winter, get a room that does not involve stairs.
Maybe they have not changed since last year, but the towels are quite thin.
The bed was fine, but it is not too far from needing to be replaced. The window hardware failed when the window was opened.
We would come back again, but with lowered expectations. The management needs to pay closer attention, or the rating of this property is going to slip.
The cleaning people were very friendly. The manager not so much.
