Beautifully appointed B&B. Nice comfy bed in a good sized room. Can't fault this place, all very good. The only thing I didn't like is that the temp in the room is preset at 72 & there's a unit to reset the temp but a little sign beneath it says please don't adjust the temp as it may set off... More

We stayed for 2 nights this week on our first visit to Santa Cruz. Beautiful room on the second floor with views to the beach and a lovely big bathroom. We spent some time sitting at the window watching the comings and goings. The complimentary wine and nibbles was a nice addition to ending the day and we enjoyed breakfast.... More

We stood there for one night. Location is perfect. Breakfast is pretty simple. We stood with a 2 year old and luckily got room 2 on the ground floor. Otherwise we would have had to go up just through stairs. The front lady although very nice and polite didnt give as good advices as what to do considering we had... More

Stayed Saturday night, September 13th, 2014, for our first visit at the West Cliff Inn. Just my wife and I for a romantic weekend getaway. The location was perfect, just a block or so away from the Santa Cruz Wharf and the iconic Beach & Boardwalk. The rooms were very clean, the staff was wonderful and friendly, and food was... More

We got a great last minute deal on this lovely B&B. We'd been wanting to stay at a Four Sisters Inn, and this was our chance! The staff was wonderful; had an early breakfast waiting for us the morning we left; moved our luggage for us (bc we had a last minute deal, we needed to switch rooms). Our first... More

My girlfriend and I were looking for a place to stay in Santa Cruz that was clean, good location, and romantic. We found everything we could ask for at the West Cliff Inn. The staff was outstanding, very helpful in every way. Our room was fantastic, large bath and shower, fireplace, and a private patio with double lounge and private... More

Pros - beautiful old-fashioned style hotel, perfect location with beach views Cons - staff were polite but unhelpful (eg: failed to mention that local running race would mean that there would be tannoy announcements from 7.30am in the morning, Sunday, and that roads were closed), private balcony only had view of houses, Jacuzzi bath was rubbish, no air con Overall...

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at the West Cliff Inn. We’re glad you enjoyed the location, the gorgeous views, and the meticulous restoration of the building. Signs were posted in strategic locations advising visitors of Santa Cruz road closures due to the running race. The race was not a West Cliff Inn event,... More

Having spent a night at a Four Sisters in Monterey, we booked a night at The West Cliff and were delighted with every aspect of it. The room was fabulous, the location magnificent and the hospitality second to none. Complimentary cheese and wine and breakfast were first class. Perfect establishments for stays while on our road trip from the UK.... More

We stay at this hotel quite a bit. The staff is good and is very personable. I noticed quite a bit of mold this time in the shower. We had room five which is nice, but the people above us were very noisy and were pacing the floor at 10:30 at night and one of them must have weighed five... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon in the states. The house itself is beautiful and stands out as you walk back from the boardwalk itself. It is a short walk from the house to the beach and boardwalk so the location is brilliant. The staff were attentive and very accommodating. The room was very comfortable... More
