We enjoyed this small intimate inn facing the Santa Cruz beach and pier. We had one of the larger rooms. As noted in other reviews, each room faces the water, are very private, comfortable, and quiet, and include outdoor seating and table. We found our stay exceptional and the staff very helpful. Its location was also a plus as you could walk to area restaurants, the Santa Cruz Pier and beaches, or along the pleasant and active West Cliff Drive with its overlooking water views as far as you want to go. In the early evening a complimentary glass of wine and hors d'oeuvres are served and in the morning a continental breakfast. We will return to this place the next time we are in the area.
