Just back from a lovely weekend at the West Cliff Inn. I booked our room with a friend's wedding discount so we paid less than advertised rates. Note, during the good weather, all places in the area are marked up considerably - even the crappy motels closer down toward the wharf. West Cliff Inn is not a crappy motel -...

My husband and I were on a 4 day driving trip down the Pacific Coast Highway and made a point to stop in Santa Cruz. We chose the West Cliff for the price and views and we were not disappointed. This was by far the best spot we stayed out of 4 inn/B&B's along the way. We stayed in room...

I don't like having to write this review, but I want to warn others so they do not have the same experience. I had such high hopes for the West Cliff Inn. A few months ago, based on reviews from tripadvisor, I booked a room (for two nights) for my husband and I to visit this past weekend. Based on...

We only had 1 night here but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was lovely, with a very luxurious marble bathroom. The afternoon cookies and evening wine and nibbles were both great touches which we thoroughly enjoyed. We had high expectations for breakfast, but to be honest we were a little disappointed. We...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for three days. Needless to say we did not want to leave. The staff are fantastic and the location is absolutely perfect. Walk to restaurants as well as the beaches. We stayed in the Superior King room. It was one of the nicest rooms we ever stayed in. Small windows overlooking the ocean but...

My husband and were driving up the coast and decided to stop in Santa Cruz for a night and spend some time at the beach enjoying the boardwalk. Imagine our disappointment when the weather was rainy and cold. However, when we arrived at the West Cliff Inn, my mood instantly improved. The staff was great and upgraded us because they...

I felt overwhelmed when I was given the best room with a million dollar view in such a beautiful Victorian house! It was the day of my birthday, a getaway from the heat wave in the Central Valley, to enjoy the cool weather in Santa Cruz. It was simply perfect! Sitting on the chair by the bay windows, sipping my...

My stay at the West Cliff Inn was a dream come true. I always wanted to stay at the beautiful Victorian House that over looked the wharf and boardwalk. The house is decorated in rich Traditional style that is warm and elegant. I enjoyed sitting in the bay window taking in the views of the beach. The front porch was...

We stayed just one night in the King Spa Suite (room 3) and it was lovely. The view overlooked the Santa Cruz beach. The breakfast and wine reception (both included) were wonderful. You will not regret staying here!
