We were met by the manager, who was helpful in recommending some restaurants and things to do. The inn is very well kept and quiet. it's located two blocks from the beach and State Street. We enjoyed the wonderful breakfast room that is well lit, and has a very Santa Barbara Spanish decor.

Our stay was very memorable! we loved the room which offered a jacuzzi and a fireplace. The use of the free beach cruisers was a very nice touch that we enjoyed very much. And continental breakfast was so sweet and way more than expected from the fresh fruit plate to the waffles, eggs and sausage. We will definitely stay at... More

General Manager, Paul Bullock and his staff work hard to make sure everything about your stay at The Eagle Inn is perfect. I cannot think of a nicer, more romantic or better location to stay while visiting Santa Barbara. Everything from the bed, to the wonderful bath facilities, to the amazing breakfast are heads and shoulders above any other accomodations... More

Nice older property. Rooms comfortable especially the bed. Full breakfast and location close to beach an added benefit at this price. Staff very friendly and professional. No dresser in room and TV not high def are negatives.

This is a very sweet B&B of sorts. Stayed in the Santa Barbara Casita for my wedding and it was great! Lots of room for ladies to get ready/primp/prep. A very cozy and nice place to be! Sweet outdoor space, fireplace, fridge, giant shower, comfy robes--pinch me, I done! :)

This was our second stay at the Eagle Inn, and it did not disappoint. The rooms are comfortably furnished, and are very clean. Toiletries and plentiful towels are provided. Breakfast, served in the dining room is of good quality, although the choice is limited. Bikes are provided at no extra charge - following the cycle track along the seafront is... More

We have stayed at the Eagle Inn twice now and really enjoy it. It is both conveniently located by the beach and the popular State Street, but also by being a block or two off the beaten path, it give you both the quiet and charm of a Santa Barbara neighborhood. The rooms are charming. The TV is smaller than... More

Pro: The inn is adorable and roomy. It is couple blocks away from both the beach and State St. They have a cute breakfast room in the mornings from 7:30 to 10. There is parking and off street parking if busy. Santa Barbara is a great city/beach to visit via train and if you are looking for a cute convenient... More

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed the complimentary breakfast and that you were able to make use of the bikes we provide. Sorry you found the internet to be inferior for your needs. Perhaps you could let me know which room you stayed in so I can look into the issue? Thank you Paul More
