The title says it all. The Eagle Inn is super charming - a mix of a European and Spanish colonial design. The rooms and common areas are comfortable and clean. The inn is a great value, especially considering the delicious breakfast included and the great coffee. The location is perfect - a short walk to the beach down a nice... More

This is a lovely place to stay. We had a wonderful weekend. We stayed in the San Nicolas. Loved the gigantic tub in the room! The television pulls out and turns so you can watch it from the tub which was a nice touch.

We loved this place. Room was small but nice and breakfast was delicious. Also borrowed the bikes which was a great way to see some sights. Would definitely stay here again the next time we visit Santa Barbara.

We were very pleasantly surprised by how nice the Eagle Inn was. The lobby is beautiful and well taken care of. We stayed in the Santa Rosa room which was spacious and had everything we could possibly need. We are just sad we could not stay longer but we will definitely be back again for another "staycation".

We were here for a 3-night anniversary get-away and enjoyed another great stay. We've stayed here before and can't wait to return! Location, charm, and staff are excellent. If you want posh and luxurious, there are several choices in the area. If you want a lovely, comfortable, small inn, stay here!

Great location - a stone's throw from the beach. Accommodating staff - check-in wasn't until 3P, but they let us park in their lot (street parking was restricted on the weekend) because we had booked an all-day bicycle tour of wine country that started at 10A. When we did check in, they had adorned our bed with rose petals and... More

I strongly recommend a stay in one of the private casitas....the location is perfect and within a short bicycle ride to the various wine tasting rooms! Did I mention there's no fee for the bicycle? Love the Eagle Inn!

We stayed for one night. It was the cheapest option. Very friendly service. Rooms big and clean. Nice decoration. They offer a free breakfast quite nice! They also have free parking lot for the car, but you can park in the street till 10. Great place!

Such a beautiful Spanish styled hotel so close to the beach, the pier, and the center of town is only a short walk away. The staff were brilliant from the moment we arrived. The room was beautifully laid out with a big and very comfortable bed. The whole atmosphere in the hotel was so ambient that you knew that you... More
