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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

Spent four nights at this very pleasant hotel. The building is about 100 years old and has been made up to a very high standard. The hotel would get a higher star rating if it had an elevator and a bar. Good location for travelling down the Pacific highway. Easy drive to Pebble Beach and Carmel. Staff excellent especially the...

The West Cliff Inn in Santa Cruz was an amazing experience. The charming rooms and defined architecture made our stay incredible. And the location you cannot beat. We, and our guests, had a great stay and will be back soon.
