West Cliff Inn, a Four Sisters Inn

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 February 2014

Beautiful scenery and inn, cute common area and rooms! A short walk away from downtown and the Boardwalk. They have complimentary wine and cheese, and a nice fireplace and area to hang out in. I would definitely go again!

Room Tip: Beach bungalo is small, but cozy!

Best place to stay in Santa Cruz by far! Perfect walking distance to the beach, amazing view of the bay, gorgeous old victorian house, clean beautifully appointed rooms, amazing breakfast (quiche, the fluffiest pancakes I have ever eaten, homemade muffins, fresh fruit, really tasty muesli and juice), very friendly and helpful staff and they let us check in three hours early and stay an hour late! I called the morning of the day we stayed there to make the reservation and since it was a less busy winter weekend, I got a great deal at $150/nt for King bed, ocean view, which is an amazing price!

I wanted to take the most special, beautiful, caring lady in my life, to a wonderful getaway place and this was it! The moment we saw the place we fell in love with it. The victorian home, the view of the wharf and ocean, the wonderful staff at the inn. We were impressed from the start. The king size bed was a dream to sleep in and the jacuzzi tub was large enough for two. The total decor of the inn was soothing and wonderful. We will be going again as soon as possible. We would recommend this place to anyone who wants to get away for a weekend or just a couple of days to de-stress.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an ocean view.

We have always loved the Four Sisters' format of ambience, amenities and accommodation...and this is no exception. A perfect location to enjoy the views and walk to the boardwalk and a bit of the "old town". A beautiful mansion room with lovely appointments and dream inducing bedding. No expense was spared in making this converted mansion into a one fit for a queen/king experience. A friendly and accommodating staff and a good breakfast offering rounded out a stellar one night stay. Can't wait to come back and recommend to friends who will certainly enjoy it as well!

Room Tip: Room #4 had stellar views!!!

I saw this Second Night Free ad in TripAdvisor and got so excited, but good thing I called to clarify. It turns out that this does not apply when booking through a third-party provider, only when booking directly with the inn, but then, the per nt price doubles! (Ex. $102 on Priceline but $210 directly with the inn)
Still, we had a wonderful single-nt stay. A beautiful room, an upgrade since we expected their lowest priced room: a detached tiny bungalow with a view of the parking lot. That would still have been worth it, but our rm in the inn was lovely--warm and refreshing. The staff was kind and welcoming.

We had such a good experience with the Four Sister property in Sonoma that we decided that if you find a good thing, stick to it. We weren't disappointed. Although our room was up two flights of stairs, the room was enormous, well appointed and with the biggest bathroom ever! It was well worth the climb.

The Inn is close to the Santa Cruz pier which is a lovely stroll and where you can watch the antics of the sea lions.

Being at the Inn at winter has the distinct advantage that there is no holiday crowds, no traffic dramas and ease of booking restaurants/hotels at a moments notice. They also offered a two nights for the price of one rate which is very attractive.

The service was friendly and attentive and, I must add, that the freshly made cookies that the Four Sisters Inn offer when you stay is a nice touch.

As we visited in winter to Santa Cruz and hadn't been there before we found the location really good for us.

Probably the only negative was getting in and out of the car park but that was more to do with being Australians who drive on the left hand side of the road and multiple roads outside the Inn. I'm thinking our manoeuvres were quite illegal.

Room Tip: We were in room 9 on the top floor. The room has a lovely spa and marble shower room. If you don...

We ended up here at the last minute and it was fabulous. It's very close to the beach with fabulous views from almost every room. The decor is tasteful and lovely in both the common rooms and the bedrooms. The breakfast was amazing and the afternoon wine and cheese perfect. The service was great. I would stay here again!

Room Tip: I think almost all the rooms have views. We had a smaller double with a "partial view"...
