We were here for a wedding.The room was great. The bed was so comfortable, had a great nights sleep. We couldn't have asked for a better room. The Santa Barbara Casita was awesome! It was so nice to relax in the afternoon out on the patio. We would definitely come back!

The room was clean, spacious, convenient and comfortable. It was nice to have a valuables safe and a small refrigerator. The breakfast was a real sit down breakfast, albeit with limited selections, in a cozy dining room. Eggs one day, lox and bagel another and always offered granola with fruit and orange juice.

My family and drove into Santa Barbara looking forward to a long 3 day Easter weekend of fun and sun at the beach. We checked in promptly at 3 pm and after dropping off our bags we made our way to the beach (about 3 minutes away). Unfortunately, not an hour later something sharp along the ocean bottom cut me...

I grew up in Santa Barbara, but moved away in 73. We return frequently and would stay at the Eagle again our room just behind the front desk was very quiet. The breakfasts were wonderful and very nice spot to sit each morning. Easy walk to beach, make reservations early.

Beautiful location, nice room, friendly staff. Enjoyed our stay. Might want to check the shower temperature that goes from hot to cold during the evening and morning shower. Breakfast was excellent. Great location.

The Eagle was very comfortable and well located for the beaches in Santa Barbara. The service was first class and the room on the upstairs level was quiet and well decorated. The only glitch we encountered was a problem with the electronic key system on both days. By the time we left, the receptionist had resolved the issue. Overall, we... More

Never get room #102. It shares a wall with the staircase. Too much noise with up and down traffic. Last person to go up 12:30 pm and first one down in the morning 4:50 am. Only rent this room if you have hearing aids to tie out!

We stayed for a night on our way up the coast and were surprised to find this little gem: clean, friendly and a great breakfast. 2 blocks from the beach. Bed was comfortable and all the amenities were modern.

This Inn was fine but I'd advise to ask not to stay on the main floor, it's noisy. Wonderful bed and big room, but employees not very knowledgeable about area. It's tucked away in a residential area. Charge an authorization fee ontop of your nightly stay which takes about a week to clear from your debit card.

The hotel was easy to find and in a good location. Room was big and comfortable. Separate eat-in kitchen was nice to have although we didn't much use it due to the very short nature of our stay. Would have preferred a bigger bathroom (no bathtub and a small shower). Breakfast was ok, but nothing sensational. Place is cute, mission... More
