Absolutely spotless! Great location right in front of wharf and very close to the board walk. Location is great. We usually go to the four sisters in Pacific Grove the Gosby House, this B&B More updated than the traditional B&B

Last week we had the pleasure of staying at The West Cliff Inn in Santa Cruz during a business trip. Faith, the front desk person was very accomodating in helping us find the best rate possible. We started out in Room 6 which was upstairs and had a small view of the ocean, a fireplace and a nice bathtub. There... More

From booking the room to final checkout, the entire process was perfect! I don't say that often, but we would return in a heartbeat. Jackie (the manager) and Faith (a wonderful employee) were great to work with, between changing our travel dates, offering the best packages/prices, taking our dog into account and following through on everything they promised made this...

We thought the Inn was extremely convenient for walking too most of the sites of Santa Cruz. The rooms were comfortable although somewhat dated and small but... More

The West Cliff is an upmarket Inn or B&B as we would call it in the UK. Afternoon wine was a nice touch and breakfast was perfect with loads of choice. The chef really knows his English Football so great conversation to be had! I stayed in the annex room which is detached from the main hotel out the back... More

I loved everything about this Inn! Lauren, at the front desk, was welcoming, cheerful, and very helpful. The breakfast was delicious--quiche, yummy scones, cold oatmeal like I've never had before! My room, #5, had a beautiful view of the water and the hotel balcony door was right off the hall. Everything you could ever want in a B&B is here... More

We loved the West Cliff Inn. The best place we visited on our two week trip up the coast from LA to San Fran. It's perfectly located, the rooms are beautifully decorated, there's an outside balcony with rocking chairs to enjoy breakfast outside or the free evening wine and cheese and biscuits. Or indeed if you've dipped your hand in... More

My husband and I spent a night at the West Cliff Inn, a bed and breakfast in Santa Cruz. The location is just perfect, as it perches on a hill, overlooking the Santa Cruz wharf, with miles of jogging area along the coastline. We stayed in room 5, with a fireplace, and best of all, an outdoor hot tub with... More
