I have never stayed at a bed-and-breakfast before, and so I wasn't sure what to expect. In my mind, when I think of the bed-and-breakfast, I think of old-fashioned, lace doilies, musty, and very quaint. This place is exactly the opposite. It has the charm of the Victorian bed-and-breakfast, but with lots of personalized, modern touches. We went for a... More

Stayed one night in the room closest to lobby/reception and it was fine. Nice afternoon wine and chatted to a travelling family in a friendly relaxed fashion. Great location, parking etc. Great value also as we were travelling in late April.

We stayed at the West Cliff Inn for one night driving down the coast of California. The only thing that would have made it better would be to have spent more time there. The inn was lovely, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the room was amazing. We had a great view of the oceanfront, a large bathroom with... More

We spent one night at the Inn on Room 9. Despite the lack of a view we enjoyed the room, with a beautiful bathroom with white marmor stone. The bed was comfortable and welcoming and the room had a very charming feel. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and they make a great breakfast. The position is perfect, right... More

We have stayed here twice now and it has been very nice both times! You can't get a better location- just a block from the Beach & Wharf! We've only stayed in one room, and it works great for 3 of us to share! Nice divided areas for sleeping with plenty of room to hang out together. Very spacious bathroom!... More

My wife and I stayed there in room 5. Upon arrival the staff was very pleasant, friendly and welcoming. I felt right at home. The room was beautiful and we had access to an outdoor hot tub which was already up and running at our arrival. There are no refrigerators in the rooms, however a small one is available in... More

We booked two rooms over four nights but on arrival we enquired about staying in one room for the duration and we were shown three rooms to choose from and we plumped for room 7 which had a narrow balcony, big spa tub, and plenty of light and room, but set back from the road so was very quiet. We... More

Nicely renovated old Victorian. We were in unit 4 on the second floor. Great view of the ocean. There is a deck that wraps around the second floor just outside this room. Would be a great place to sit and enjoy some wine in the evening. The room has a small gas fireplace and the bathroom is first class -... More

We stayed three nights and loved every minute of our winter trip to Santa Cruz. The location was terrific with most of our time spent walking to the great sights and fun of Santa Cruz. The hotel had great service, very friendly and clean. Terrific food and snacks. Our group had four couples celebrating birthdays and each had a terrific... More

Your pets can freely play or relax in the Communal Room; best yet, during the daily 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm wine tasting with cheese, crackers, etc. you can enjoy wine while feeding your pets in... More

FSInns, Manager at West Cliff Inn, a Four Sisters Inn, responded to this review

As I mentioned in my telephone conversation with you yesterday, following your review, we are sincerely sorry for your recent experience at West Cliff Inn. Although we do welcome four legged friends in a limited number of designated rooms on the property, we have stringent policies in place that absolutely do not allow them access to any public areas of...
