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.

We had a tremendous time for our first visit to Santa Cruz. We could walk to the beach and pier. The views from the B&B were spectacular. Thank you for a refreshing time away.

4.2 on April 07, 2014

The location can't be beat. Right across street from beach. Our room was very nice and clean. Breakfast was wonderful but we did notice there was no meat. Staff was very nice and professional. I'm very glad we stayed there. There are some things they can work on. We stayed near the front door which slammed shut when anyone entered/ exited. Some noise in morning when staff prepared breakfast. Needed another nightstand in the room. Also a place to hold bathroom items.

excellent location, very nice property

3.2 on April 04, 2014

We stayed in the little bungalow for one night, which was great. Yes, it is small, but while in Santa Cruz there is so much to see and lots of ground to cover on foot. We basically slept in our room, which was clean, comfortable and well decorated. Large bathroom w/ a large shower, as well. Breakfast was what you would expect from a property of this ilk. No complaints at all from us. Would stay there again.
