The rooms are fairly small--just a couple beds, a tiny kitchen, a bathroom, and a TV. The kitchen is good for making a little breakfast or heating something up. It has a little fridge, stovetop burner, and a toaster. There are also plates and utensils provided, which is nice. The bathroom comes with a full bathtub instead of just a shower, which is great, because I love being able to soak off all that salt and sand!
The beach is down a long flight of stairs, since the hotel is up on a bluff overlooking the beach. Even though I'm young and consider myself to be in fairly good shape, I had to take a couple breaks when I'd come up and down the steps. There's nothing to be embarrassed about! It's expected, and there are benches provided on the landings for people to take a break at and chat with the other hotel guests.
Even though the ocean's too cold to swim in, don't forget to pack your swimsuit! Sunset Hotel has a pretty nice indoor pool, which is kept nice and clean and is usually pretty quiet too.
