Miss this one and miss a memory that will last forever. We stayed at the Eagle Inn for our anniversary and had one of the most memorable stays of any getaway we've ever experienced. The Santa Rosa is the room we had. Complete with a kitchenette, a whirlpool tub, fireplace and cozy little deck, the accommodations were most comfortable and... More

My husband is not a fan of B&B's. He doesn't like the chit-chat at a communal table in the morning, and he always complains that there's not enough privacy and too much noise. So when I told him we were going to stay at the Eagle Inn, he was very apprehensive -- until he saw it! This is a beautifully-maintained... More

Great place to get away for couples. Good location, great rooms and wonderful service. We visited Santa Barbara for the first time and this hotel is close to beach and everything else. We hope to return soon.

Booked a room for the night while driving the PCH with my husband and we wish we had more time to stay! The Eagle Inn was close to the water and downtown life and what made it even better was the free beach cruisers to get to where we wanted to go!!! Loved the double head showers too!! Would definitely... More

Did not know anything about the place except for the brief description on Priceline. This place is better than described and worth returning to. Family owned and operated with great and courteous staff. Breakfast is so good, you'll want seconds. Don't miss the chance to stay here !

Definitely a hidden gem of Santa Barbara. Fantastic quality hotel and superb value. We got a great welcome from I presume the owner, who upgraded us when we said we were staying two nights, to a room with jacuzzi bath in it, as well as a double shower and balcony. The room was light and spacious and having the balcony... More

We stayed at the Eagle Inn in January and loved it. The rooms are well appointed, very clean, with superb complimentary toiletries. One of our party stayed in a twin room and we stayed in a spa room. Both were wonderful and comfortable. We had a few problems with getting the DVD player to function but staff did manage this... More

We are on a road trip around the U.S. and arrived in Santa Barbara having stayed at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, the Argonaut in SF and the Village in Mammoth Lakes. The rooms at The Eagle Inn were easily the most comfortable, cleanest and best decorated. The personal touch from the family running the hotel was evident throughout: the... More

The casitas at the Eagle Inn are fantastic. As parents traveling with an infant, we appreciate having the extra space to be completely comfortable without disturbing the other guests. The Eagle Inn is a fabulous place to stay in a beautiful seaside town. It doesn't get much better than that!
