About

Situated on a bluff across from the beach, West Cliff Inn is a Four Sisters Inn and was built as a private home in 1877. Fully remodeled two years ago, the stately, three-story Italianate Victorian with its spacious, wraparound porch features a breezy, coastal décor with fabrics in crisp blues and whites. All but one of the ten well-appointed guest rooms feature a fireplace, marble tile bathrooms, and most with jetted spa tubs and king beds featuring plush pillow-top mattresses. One second-floor room has a private, outdoor jetted hot tub; two spacious top-floor suites have separate sitting areas and oversized bathrooms. Each room has high-speed Internet access, an iPod™ player, and a television with a DVD player.

We enjoyed the view from our front window, and the evening snack and morning breakfast were amazing!

Simply one of the best places I have ever stayed in. The breakfast was incredible! Everything was so fresh and delicious. Will definitely stay here again next time we visit Santa Cruz.


Wonderful stay!

Loved this place! We stayed on the 3rd floor and had a lot of natural lighting due to a skylight in the living area, the entry way and the bathroom! The whirlpool tub was extremely relaxing, although I had a little trouble getting in and out due to the wide frame. The bathroom itself was very luxurious and pretty. The bed was comfortable and although the window was small the view was magnificent. We originally booked a room on the 2nd floor but moved up to have a little fridge in the room for insulin storage but there is a small fridge in the registration area and a large one in the kitchen if you need to use one if there's not one in your room. The room we had is quite large and has a separate living area with comfy chairs, daybed, tv, fireplace, small window and skylight. Overall, very nice and comfortable room, beautiful inn and very friendly staff! Not to be missed, fresh cookies in registration area! Although we were out on the town in the afternoon and missed it, they have a wine and cheese reception hour.


Great Bed and Breakfast in Santa Cruz

I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!

4.8 on March 01, 2016

LOVE THIS PLACE!!! From the moment I called to make a reservation, to the time we checked out, this place and the people who work there... made our stay AMAZING. THANK YOU. This house is gorgeous, location really can't be beat, breakfast in bed was so nice... AND delicious!!! The room with the outside private hot tub (#5) was just what we needed. In fact, we enjoyed it so much, we're going to get a hot tub of our own. - Word of caution though... watch your first step getting into the hot tub.. it's a bit tricky, and very slippery. The beds were soft.. but comfortable enough. The sheets/duvet were sooooo comfy. The shampoo/conditioner/body wash smelled so good, I HAD to ask where they got them from... and I'm getting some for myself :) The fresh cookies they make daily were yummy. The hors d'oeuvres were simple, but just what we needed to tie us over for our dinner res at 8. The view from the balcony on the second floor... which ANYONE in the place can use, was perfect. The ONLY down side, was the noise from the outside (WHICH IS NOT THE B&B's fault). The weather was warm, so we left the windows open... but that meant the noise from the outside... the loud beeping of the garbage trucks early, car alarms going off, etc. Still, I do believe we will be back. LOVE THIS PLACE!!! :)


Great stay in Santa Cruz!

House is stunning, employees are fabulous, views were great. The cimolimentary wine and cheese was a great thought - but I didn't care for the wine. The only real let down was the Internet service on the 3rd floor suites. It only worked on one half of the room. Overall, I would definately go back and ask for a different room with better Internet service if I had to work on computer at all. ¿¿


Great Stay

We stayed in the little beach bungalow, looked just like the pictures. The room was clean, comfortable and cozy. Service was great, location perfect for the beach. Dining options somewhat limited for walking but everything else is a quick drive. Their breakfast was outstanding both days and consisted of and egg dish with vegetables, nice breakfast potatoes,fresh fruit salad, breakfast rolls, juices and a delicious cold oatmeal dish (muesli). Would definitely stay again!


A slice of heaven

Staff was very helpful. Especially pleased by Faith who checked is in quickly and answered questions throughout our stay about the Inn and the area. The Inn was magnificent with its large rooms, high ceilings, and incredible crown moldings. Kudos to the chef for amazing breakfasts and hors d'ouevres.


Great Getaway...!

I booked at the last minute and still got a special weekend margin. Recently remodeled, very well appointed, the rooms are cozy and very clean. If you want to sleep in, I suggest room on second floor, the rooms on the first floor will hear the breakfast traffic. Great romantic getaway...!
