Top service. Matt was exceptional as well as the other lady at the front desk. Breakfast was a 5 star, and who does not love wine and cheese from 4-6pm!?!I A walk on the beach is just across the street. 3rd floor, room 8.. Amazing. Clean! King bed, Ocean view, Jacuzzi tub, Fireplace, Mini fridge, Coffee maker. We opted to take out the bikes and visit the Arboretum. I could have stayed all week. It was the first time staying with the Four Sisters Inn but certainly not the last.

This place is first class all the way. Can't say enough. The staff was informative and very friendly, the coffee, breakfast, and fruit in the morning was delicious.. wine and cheese in the evenings, room was awesome. Huge jacuzzi, white marble everywhere, fireplace, big bed & sitting area, ocean view. We got a "second night free" deal.. maybe because we stayed out of season. The only reason I wouldn't stay here again, would be to check out another Four Sisters Inn somewhere else in California. We almost stayed at the Dream Inn instead, and I am SO glad we chose the West Cliff.. .the dream inn looks like a big concrete block. Go to the dream inn if you're 19 and on spring break, otherwise, you'll be much happier at the West Cliff.

My sisters and I stayed at the West Cliff Inn on 3/5/2013 and 3/6/2013. The Inn was lovely with a very helpful staff. Our breakfast in the morning was wonderful and different each day. The Inn sits on top of West Cliff Drive overlooking the Boardwalk, Wharf and Beach. The views are beautiful, we were on the third floor in a spacious room for 3 with a beautiful bathroom that included a jacuzzi bathtub and a shower beautiful.! Rooms were exceptionally clean and free parking. In the afternoon wine and snacks are served so that you can relax and rewind for dinner. Highly recommed this Inn that takes you back to a simpler, gentler time.

Room Tip: Third floor is a tough climb if you have any health issues.

What a beautiful inn! My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night and it was so much fun! I recommend taking advantage of the beach cruisers and hitting up the boardwalk. The 2nd story balcony is a great place to enjoy the view...we did so with our breakfast. It was perfect!

This is a top notch B&B located in a beautifully restored historic Victorian located on a small bluff with a view of and a two minute walk to the beach, wharf and boardwalk in Santa Cruz. The ambiance truly takes you back in time and, even though the main attractions of SC are minutes away, the beauty and quiet of this place offers a lovely respite. We were fortunate enough to have stayed in the top floor Superior King Spa Room with tons of space, a huge marble bathroom, a fireplace and two sitting areas and a view to the sea. The wine and appetizers in the lobby were a welcome treat in the late afternoon and the breakfast was extensive and delicious. Parking is included. I can't imagine anyone would not enjoy their visit to this lovely inn.

We went to Santa Cruz to have more of an experience of the area, other than the Beach Boardwalk. My husband chose a B&B, West Cliff Inn, and it was terrific. The rooms were delightful, and the living room/dining room were lovely, with some windows that faced the beach and water by the wharf. One of our main desires was to experienced West Cliff Drive, and we couldn't get enough of it, walking both day and evening, enjoying waves, surfers, and beautiful cliffs. Back to the Inn. Both an over the top breakfast, and wine and cheese were included with the room, and we simply enjoyed all our time there.

Room Tip: We were on the ground floor, which we prefer, and it had a fireplace, great windows, and a really ni...

My boy friend and I stayed here this past weekend, we were orginally suppose to stay there the previous month but both came down with the flu. Even though we were already in our cancellation period they were kind enough to let us change our date. We stayed in room 5, lovely room with a large personal deck with a hot tub, very nice and relaxing. The staff were all super friendly and helpful, Rachel checked us in, gave us a tour, and went above and beyond customer service wise! Any time we head up there again, we will definitely stay at this hotel again! (:

Room Tip: Room 5 has it's own deck & Hot tub, very nice for a couple get away!
