A short stay but enough time to spot a real gem. Little touches like jars of cookies, free afternoon wine and coffee, all presented with style and charm, make this an excellent b&b offer. Well positioned in town, the view is only slightly compromised by the more recently built hotel across the road.

We wish we could have stayed longer. It was a very nice B & B. We enjoyed spending time on the front porch - both in the morning with our coffee and in the evening with a glass of wine. Our room, #7, was great!

Stayed for a long weekend with my boyfriend, and we had a MAGNIFICENT time! We were in Room 8 (comfy king bed, whirlpool tub in a BEAUTIFUL marble bathroom, gas fireplace, and gorgeous view of the ocean), and we took advantage of the second night free deal. When I called, the nice man on the phone said he would upgrade... More

A charming and romantic place to stay. Our room overlooked the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, Pacific Ocean, and the pier. Great shopping along Pacific Avenue. Walked along West Cliff Drive between the Boardwalk and the Natural Bridges. Stopped at the Surf Museum. We had dinner at Stagnaro's on the pier. Friendly and accommodating staff. Wonderful breakfast in the morning! A real... More

Beautiful scenery and inn, cute common area and rooms! A short walk away from downtown and the Boardwalk. They have complimentary wine and cheese, and a nice fireplace and area to hang out in. I would definitely go again!

Best place to stay in Santa Cruz by far! Perfect walking distance to the beach, amazing view of the bay, gorgeous old victorian house, clean beautifully appointed rooms, amazing breakfast (quiche, the fluffiest pancakes I have ever eaten, homemade muffins, fresh fruit, really tasty muesli and juice), very friendly and helpful staff and they let us check in three hours...

I wanted to take the most special, beautiful, caring lady in my life, to a wonderful getaway place and this was it! The moment we saw the place we fell in love with it. The victorian home, the view of the wharf and ocean, the wonderful staff at the inn. We were impressed from the start. The king size bed... More

We have always loved the Four Sisters' format of ambience, amenities and accommodation...and this is no exception. A perfect location to enjoy the views and walk to the boardwalk and a bit of the "old town". A beautiful mansion room with lovely appointments and dream inducing bedding. No expense was spared in making this converted mansion into a one fit... More

I saw this Second Night Free ad in TripAdvisor and got so excited, but good thing I called to clarify. It turns out that this does not apply when booking through a third-party provider, only when booking directly with the inn, but then, the per nt price doubles! (Ex. $102 on Priceline but $210 directly with the inn) Still, we... More

We had such a good experience with the Four Sister property in Sonoma that we decided that if you find a good thing, stick to it. We weren't disappointed. Although our room was up two flights of stairs, the room was enormous, well appointed and with the biggest bathroom ever! It was well worth the climb. The Inn is close... More
