West Cliff Inn Review

A posh nautical-theme inn with views of the boardwalk and Monterey Bay, the West Cliff perches on the bluffs across from Cowell Beach. The three-story Italianate structure, built in 1877, has classic California beach style, with color schemes that hint of ocean, sky, and reflected sunlight. All rooms have a comfy king bed, a fireplace, and a fancy marble tile bathroom. Some have a private patio with a spa tub. Rooms facing the bay have the best views, but for the ultimate in privacy, ask for the room that with the private patio and hot tub. Guests enjoy a lavish breakfast in the elegant dining room, while surfers and seals catch the waves down below.
