Sweeping views of Monterey Bay, upscale creature comforts in a recently renovated 1887 Italianate Victorian, categorize this lovely inn. Just steps from Cowell’s Beach, West Cliff Inn rules for romance.
The nine rooms have king beds and fireplaces; some have spa tubs. Decor is decidedly handsome, with thick duvets, dark wooden furnishings complemented by lacy white curtains.
Breakfast might include Blueberry Pancakes, Artichoke Quiche or Grand Marnier French Toast. The afternoon wine hour comes with a decadent sweet treat as well.
One room is designated pet friendly — call for details.
