Professionally Inspected & Certified


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.

Lovely house, excellent location

3.4 on January 13, 2015

We stayed there over Christmas break. The location is 5 minutes by foot to the beach and boardwalk. Downtown is very close. Parking is available (although the spots are small). The rooms themselves are nice. Bed was big and comfortable. Breakfast was good. Evening wine tasting is always nice, but it's free, so don't expect the most expensive wine and caviar. Overall, I'd go back again!

Best B&B

5 on January 06, 2015

This is the most delightful place we have ever stayed at. We travel a lot and like to try out different accommodation chains and we are definitely hooked by the Four Sisters Inn. Planning our next gateway in Napa and as far as we are concern there are no other options except this B&B chain. Clean, great food, comfortable and very friendly staff.

Wonderful stay

Very quiet - Nice!. Toilet backed up due to low flush toilet. Room was smaller than expected. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

Stay at Santa Cruz

Beautiful Gem in Santa Cruz!

We had a wonderful stay in this little bed and breakfast. Stayed in the little beach bungalow which was small but perfectly suited for our needs since we had a small dog. Everything was extremely clean and staff was friendly. Breakfast was delicious and vegetarian and the evening snacks were a lot better than expected. Beautiful scenery. Will be my go to place to stay anytime I'm in the area!

Santa Cuz a disappointment

4.0 on October 16, 2014

Loved the B&B. did not love Santa Cruz. Seemed a little edgy, with armed police presence on Saturday night downtown street corners. Lots of young adults on street, panhandling, intoxicated, etc., even in early evening.

The Little Beach Bungalow

5 on October 16, 2014

The little beach bungalow was perfect for me and my mom! We were celebrating her 75th Birthday here and we enjoyed our stay very much. The breakfast were outstanding and the afternoon appetizers were outstanding. Overall, we had a great time, and we'd stay here again!

My husband and I stayed here for our wedding and it was perfect! The staff was very nice, our room was big and clean, the breakfast was delicious and the building is beautiful (we even used it as the backdrop for some of our photos, and referred to it as "our house"). I would definitely recommend the West Cliff Inn.

Enjoyed our stay. Wish the front desk was open longer hours to ask questions. They leave at 7:30pm so if you want directions or have a question no one is there to ask.
