Cleaning lady slams door in our face and gives is the worst attitude I've ever witnessed. It was actually unbelievable. Left worst taste in our mouth after this experience. HORRIBLE! Never been treated like this by anyone let alone the cleaning lady!!

Room was deluxe king w fireplace and balcony on ground floor. Comfortable bed. Bathroom had shower. Nice enough room. Too close to breakfast restaurant, so it was very noisy starting before 7:30 a.m. Free parking and good location close to State street and beach. Breakfast was average. Overall, nothing wrong, but there are lots of great places in Santa Barbara.

Found this a great location for the ocean but a longer walk to the town. Reception staff were efficient and polite. The room had quality bed, flooring, smart bathroom. However, we overlooked the parking lot and had asked for a quiet room. Being a Saturday, guests returned all hours so heard slamming doors, chatting, etc which wasn't ideal. Breakfast menu... More

Thank you for writing a detailed review. I'm sorry to hear you were not happy with the location of your room. One of the difficulties we encounter is that different people have different opinions of what constitutes noise. Our hotel is flanked on one side by Bath Street, and the car park on the other. Some people claim the Bath... More

Plenty of room in the double queen for all of us, very clean and nicely appointed. Really appreciated the Keurig coffee maker. Ideal location, quiet but close enough to everything. Would definitely stay here again. Hope next time they understand what gluten free means.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights. I found the location excellent since it's close to the beach and the main street, yet it is very quiet so no sleep issues. Having fresh breakfast, prepared and served in a cosy room was a pleasant surprise. The rooms might look a bit old (bathrooms are renovated though) but clean and... More

Great place to stay that felt like a B&B. Clean and nicely appointed, comfortable bed, very friendly staff and a nice breakfast. The bikes were definitely a nice bonus. Plus location was perfect - 2 short blocks from the ocean and 2 blocks from the downtown area. Good value as well. Would highly recommend staying here.

Loved The Eagle Inn. Will be back. The bed was comfortable and the Santa Barbara Casita was like being in a perfect home -- especially without a kitchen. Breakfast was excellent! And the location was perfect.

A very cozy and charming Spanish style hotel. Rooms are on the small side, but are quaint and clean. The only complaint was the light fixture attached to the overhead fan was annoying as the pull chains rattled when the fan was on. The breakfast was lovely and cooked to order.

Between the fantastic room and the perfect location my wife and I couldn't have asked for a better weekend. I will keep coming back to The Eagle Inn when ever I can and I will recommend the Eagle to anyone that will listen.
