The inn is relaxing, quiet, beautiful, and ideally located. The breakfast and wine hour are great, and include an array of fresh fruit and vegetables. The rooms are very comfortable and have been updated with larger TVs (if you're into that sort of thing) and a portable AC unit (not the most attractive, but effective) since my last stay. When...

This house on a hill is a beautiful building and is meticulous on the inside. We stayed here for one night and booked it last minute. It turned out to be a brilliant find! There is a huge living room area where guests can sit and read, etc. There is a wine reception each afternoon. There is a verdana on...

We loved every thing about this place. Lets start with the room. It was huge. Our view was perfect and we were able to open the windows to get the ocean breeze. The bathroom was unbelievable and the bed comfortable. We were walking distance to the pier and restaurants. Moving on,the staff was wonderful. We checked in on a Tuesday...

This hotel is awesome and I would definitely recommend it. The staff is very welcoming, friendly, attentive and shows a genuine interest in their customers. One day I wasn't feeling very well and had to return to the room. They asked my husband updates about my wellbeing. Not every hotel proofs such an interest. We had a wonderful room in...

This is a beautiful Victorian home turned B&B with 3 floors (incl. ground floor). I've stayed here twice and my first time was better than the second. Why? Well, like all hotels, it makes a difference which room you get, on what floor, where it's located, etc... My favorite room was not available so my husband and I stayed in...

I may be more disappointed than the average person, because I made the mistake of booking A Four Sisters place TWICE in 1 trip. These place try to be a bed and breakfast, but they fall. They treat it like a business to cut corners and save money, and you can see it! Our top floor room, smelled like vinegar,...

I booked two nights at this establishment based on the Tripadvisor reviews and I was not impressed. Reviewers need to stop embellishing what really goes on. This place has three floors but no elevator so getting yourself or large suitcases into upper floor rooms is an experience. The front desk girl was not all that helpful and she was too...

We had a wonderful stay at West Cliff Inn, while visiting our son in Santa Cruz. There are lots of things to like about this Inn. First, the location is great. Easy walking distance to the ocean, the boardwalk, and the wharf. On our second night there, we walked down to the Firefish Restaurant on the wharf, and had a...

This is our second time to stay at this B&B. It is a beautiful white building that sits a top of a hill. There is a patio on the second floor with comfortable chairs where you can sit and enjoy the view of the ocean and the Santa Cruz pier. Our room had a comfortable king bed and a fireplace....

Excellent experience. Free WiFi and free parking. We arrived late in the pouring rain, but there was a simple checkin process so we were able to get to our room with no problem. Gorgeous Victorian home. Don't forget it's a house, so you will hear the footsteps of the people staying above you because it was converted into a B&B....
