This quaint, historical property is absolutely charming, with magnificent views, and it is in a great location for walking to the beach or boardwalk! The evening wine and cheese reception and morning breakfast were just excellent, with delicious homemade foods, and fresh fruits and vegetables. Gluten-free bread was also available. I stayed in the Little Beach Bunglaow, which was very... More

Room 8 is fabulous--am told it is their most luxurious, i.e. top floor with great view and huge double jacuzzi in granite bathroom, separate sitting TV area w daybed (but who needs TV when the beach is beckoning?) and bar area with fridge--wow. Breakfast was good but buffet style & unexciting. However, the afternoon cookies are yum and the location... More

Not only was the staff helpful when we got there but they were able to upgrade us to a better room. They helped us find a hotel room for the night they didn't have availability. Great staff! Great location and clean and comfortable rooms.

Hotel is a beautiful old home right across from the beach. Spend the night in absolute luxury. Complimentary wine and snacks in the afternoon, and full hot breakfast in each morning. Treat yourself to a night or two, you won't be disappointed.

A charming inn with lovely staff. Immaculately presented with quality furnishings and fittings, this is the perfect choice for those seeking a little bit of luxury. We chose the basic room as we were only there for one night and we could not have been happier. The breakfast is included and was both fresh and delicious. They even understood "gluten... More

This is a charming bed and breakfast. Our room (#8) was exceptionally clean and well appointed. The marble tub was huge! Beds were very comfortable. The location was good for us. It's an easy walk down to the boardwalk and a bit of a jaunt to the main street area. Overall, I would absolutely stay here again!

The West Cliff Inn is a winner! The inn is charming and all the staff so very gracious. The inn is immaculate and very well maintained. We stayed for 2 nights in mid-July. We stayed in the first floor king room overlooking the front porch. The breakfast was amazing and was such a great way to start the day.

This place is amazing. The house has a grandeur atmosphere and the rooms are very spacious. The balcony, overlooking the boulevard and beach, is just great. The staff went above and beyond to facilitate our needs. They made calls for us, and helped out where they could. Moreover, and that is rare, they where always smiling and cheerfull. Highly recommended.

We took an overnight staycation in santa cruz and at short notice could only find the beach bungalow at westcliff inn. We were not sure how it will turn out, but it was an awesome experience. From attention to detail, to cleanliness of rooms, to a sumptuous breakfast, everything was well taken care of. Great value for money. Location is... More
