Stunning little hotel in a fantastic location. Very helpful friendly staff who gave us a tour of the hotel, services and even tips on places to eat. Loved the personal touch with constant coffee and homemade cookies available 24hrs a day. The room was beautiful and it was so nice to get away from the homogenous big chain hotels. Would... More

We selected the hotel (almost a B&B) from Trip Advisor reviews and once again they did not let us down. The room was small but had all amenities you require; even a large shower (not over bath). The views from the room and balcony were perfect. The hosts we visible enough to be attentive but not in your face. The... More

We stayed in the little beach bungalow, it was lovely. The staff were very very friendly, darcy was very accommodating, nothing was too much trouble, complimentary wine cheese and crackers, and homemade cookies on our arrival, would definitely urge everyone to stay here,

Historic charm with modern amenities! A warm and informative staff provide excellent information and recommendations for area restaurants and activities. The Inn will let you borrow bikes for a beach or cruise to Natural Bridge where you can see the Monarchs from November to March. The breakfasts are truly gourmet and healthy, fresh fruit, incredible muesli, hot from the oven... More

We stayed one night in White Cliff Inn and it was exceptional. The location with free parking is wonderful. The views of the pier especially at sunset were breathtaking. White Cliff Inn is a superior accommodation offering and does not disappoint in any way. Our room was a suite with all the comforts you might expect, nice seating area with... More

Where to start with praises of this fantastic Santa Cruz inn! The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, offering great suggestions for restaurants in the area, accommodating all requests, and help finding a lost ID. It is cozy, incredibly clean, and the location cannot be beat. Also, the breakfast was absolutely delicious (as were the cookies that are always in... More

Our original room on the first floor was very nice and comfortable. Then we got a free upgrade to a bigger room on the 2nd floor. Both rooms had gas fire places, and the 2nd had a private porch with jacuzzi. Every morning was a hearty and delicious breakfast, and afternoon wine happy hour. Everyone working there was super nice... More

This historic house overlooks the bay and from our room, we could see the sunrise and the Inn is located within walking distance to the pier and various restaurants. The pier has resident seals that can be viewed quite close as they congregate on a platform. Don't bring large luggage to this hotel as they use a dumb waiter to... More

This 130 year old mansion has been restored beautifully. The location is great and we appreciated the delicious breakfasts, wine & hors d'oeuvres, coffee/tea, and water cooler. Way better than a hotel. We would stay here again with no hesitation.

What a lovely hotel and lovely people who run it. An ideal location and lots of character. We were unlucky because we caught the edge of a storm from the north which meant we had a rainy weekend in Santa Cruz. But staying at the West Cliff meant it didn't matter.

Thank plfara
