Pros: Beautiful hotel, classic Santa Barbara style, very clean & spacious rooms, delicious breakfast, yummy late night cookies, great location (2 blocks from beach), quiet area. Cons: Most uncomfortable bed!!! Too soft & squishy, no support. We would absolutely stay here again IF the beds were changed.

I could not believe just how quiet it was - nicely located (very central) and I could honestly say that the breakfast we were served was restaurant quality- no doubt about it. We will definitely stay at this beautiful little place next time we go - they have my business, the staff was magnificent - great experience over all.

Fantastic bed and breakfast! The little touches, like the rose petals around the bath, the vines on the balcony, and the classic beach cruisers available, made for a perfect weekend getaway! Love the blend of classic Spanish architecture and modern amenities. And the light breakfast options were great.

Best free hotel breakfast ever. Not your Holiday Inn express. Food was served and hand cooked. I wish I would have stayed a week to see the entire menu rotation. Great architecture and finishing. Room super cute and very romantic. This is my new favorite hotel in SB.

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.

Such welcoming staff, excellent room and delicious breakfasts. We stayed an extra night! (5 total) And plan to return Santa Barbara is a wonderful place. And the Eagle Inn is the very best. Easy parking too

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! :)
