All the raving reviews about Eagle Inn are true! Its beautiful and romantic, with its lush gardens, palm trees, and amazing spanish architecture. we booked a room a few hours before we arrived while doing the stunning Pacific Coast Highway roadtrip from San Francisco down to San Diego. We have stayed in 6 different hotels/inns during our trip, and this... More

We stayed here on a family recommendation and had a great time. Staff was friendly and helpful with all our needs. Rooms seemed a bit dated and so maybe in need of some renovation (bathroom) but they were clean. One morning we did have a shortage of hot water it seems and the water pressure was a bit low, but...

Stayed there this past weekend on a recommendation from a friend. First impressions are everything...We waited at check-in while the girl at the desk flirted with someone who was making a future reservation. We had to listen to them for 10 minutes talk about where they lived in town and how much rent they paid... Really? Finally it was our... More

Beautiful building, great location near the harbor and local night life, some nice amenities like the breakfast and beach cruisers. I wish I had read the reviews more carefully as your stay will be greatly influenced by the room you get. Mine looked nothing like the photos, smaller and poorly decorated. As multiple reviewers have pointed out some rooms are... More

We just had a wonderful stay at the Eagle Inn. Stayed in the deluxe queen room. It was wonderful! Romantic canopy bed, large fireplace, patio with lots of seating, beautifully decorated and very clean. The Spanish style architecture really set the mood. Love the carved wooden doors and terra cotta tiling. The gardens are lovingly attended, and we saw and... More

Stayed there last week - a week away from Easter- it was a busy time in Santa Barbara. Loved the style of this boutique hotel, spanish inspiration, beautiful furniture. The staff is very helpful and friendly, complimentary breakfast is offered, not your usual continental , but a new choice of 2 different dishes every morning. Rooms are nice, I would... More

I had a perfect stay at this beautiful little hotel. Location was perfect -- quiet neighborhood close to everything. Breakfasts were great -- it's so nice to have a cooked-to-order breakfast served to you instead of the usual buffet on paper/plastic. I can't say enough good about the Eagle Inn!

My boyfriend and I were looking for a last minute overnight stay in Santa Barbara when we were out and California and he accidentally stumbled across this hotel. The website showed that they didn't have vacancy but he thought he'd try his luck and called. And did we luck out… one room available for the exact night we needed it!... More

We really were looking forward to our stay at the Eagle Inn. So many great reviews. Unfortunately we were very disappointed with our stay. We were in Santa Barbara to celebrate "decade" birthdays for both myself and a close friend. Loved Santa Barbara. Unimpressed with the Inn. On the plus side: Great Location. Nice breakfast. On the minus side: Very... More

I'm very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. I do appreciate you writing to make me aware of your experience. I have spoken with the housekeeping staff to ensure they do not leave their carts in the hallways anymore. And, at your suggestion, I have changed the shower head too. We would have been happy to...

Location was great! Close enough to the main street to walk and close to the beach. Stayed in the Santa Rosa room, very nice with fireplace, balcony and jacuzzi. Would highly recommend it! Staff seemed friendly. I would stay here again when back in Santa Barbara.
