We are four couples traveling south of San Francisco for the week. Our first stop was in Santa Cruz at the Westcliff Inn.The review is a compilation of opinions of all four couples. 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

We had a very enjoyable stay. This is a very decent Bed & Breakfast. The house is nice and clean. The breakfast was excellent and the staff was great. Very close walk to the Santa Cruz pier. Free parking and WiFi.

A remarkable place to stay in Santa Cruz, actually THE place to stay in Santa Cruz. The courteous staff, the incredible views, the charming decor, and elegant architecture make for a wonderful place to stay, whether you are celebrating something special or just stopping through town along the coast. I loved this place! And will return.

We reserved a room at the West Cliff Inn at the last minute during our honeymoon. Based on the reviews on TripAdvisor, I was looking forward to the stay. We were welcomed to the Inn with freshly baked cookies - YUM. The building is beautiful, spacious and tastefully decorated with views of the Santa Cruz beach and harbor. Our room... More

Great place to stay. Bed was excellent, room and view was outstanding. Hot tub on the deck was great. Location to the amenities was perfect. Wine and cheese each night was a nice touch for sure. Only complaint was that every dish had mushrooms in it( not a mushroom fan). Really great place to stay and we would definatly return.
