Wonderful jewel
Reviewed 3 days ago

My sister and were able to stay two nights here while we explored the area. The rooms are very well appointed, clean and very tastefully decorated. Our 2nd floor room opened to the shared deck which was nice but a little awkward when other guests were out there and our windows were open. There are not screens on the windows so we didn't feel comfortable leaving thrm.open at night since the deck was there

The staff was very friendly and provided excellent breakfast and early evening appetizers.

Very nice!

Luxury in an historical hotel
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Wonderful hotel in great location with luxury in an historical setting. Freshly baked cookies with tea and coffee available all day and evening canapés and wine reception. Excellent breakfast. Only down-side was we had room no 1 which is right by reception and the reception rooms which meant we could hear all the conversations taking place and were self-conscious that we could be heard, so the room didn't feel private. However, I am certain with another room things would have been perfect.

Luxurious, Beautiful Inn
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

We absolutely LOVED our experience at West Cliff Inn! It was our first time in Santa Cruz, as well as a mini honeymoon for us. We loved everything about the inn. The Deluxe King Spa (Room #8) was gorgeous. It was on the top floor with great views of the beach. It was a huge room with a full living area and a spectacular bathroom (huge marble shower and lovely jacuzzi bathtub). The staff was incredible - kind and helpful. While we didn't partake in much of the "full" breakfast because we are vegan, we did start our morning each day with delicious fruit and coffee in the lovely dining area before embarking on our Santa Cruz adventures. The 5 pm wine hour was fantastic after a day hiking or exploring beaches. At night, we fell asleep to the sounds of waves crashing on the beach and sea lions barking! Best sounds ever. The entire inn felt lovely and luxurious. And it was immaculately clean (most important thing to me).

The Four Sisters never disappoint. But this is the first time we've visited West Cliff Inn. We were delighted with the beautiful space, convenient location, generous food & beverage offerings and the friendly staff.

Beautiful room in beautiful Italianate house in good location. Staff were relaxed, friendly and helpful. Cheese & wine and breakfast were just what we wanted. The best stay so far on our Highway 1 road trip.
