Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
West Cliff Inn is a bed and breakfast on a bluff looking out over Cowell’s Beach and the famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Once the mansion of a 49er who made his fortune in the nearby gold fields, the Victorian inn was built with commanding views of the ocean and is a short walk from the lighthouse.
Over the next century, the home was used as a hospital, office and vacation rental before being completely renovated in 2004 and transformed into an inn with coastal-inspired décor, blue and white fabrics, and furniture made from wicker and recycled woods. Many of the 10 guest rooms have fireplaces, oversized jetted bathtubs and ocean views. Wi-Fi and parking are included in the room rates. For an additional fee, comforts of home like a bottle of wine, a teddy bear and pet-friendly rooms are available.
Each morning, guests awake to a breakfast buffet and are welcomed home in the afternoon with wine and hor d’oeuvres. In between, tea, coffee and freshly-baked cookies are available. Movies, books and games can be borrowed from the front desk to entertain on a quiet evening.
