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

My husband and I had a regular king room while our daughter had the Santa Barbara Casita. The Casita was PERFECT for the bride & wedding party to get ready for the wedding! A beautiful living area AND outside patio! I am a Santa Barbara native for 50 years and returned after a couple years gone for the weekend wedding... More

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!

Thank you for writing your review of the Santa Barbara Casita. I'm really glad to hear that you enjoyed yourselves so much. I must admit, the Santa Barbara Casita is one of my favorites too. Sitting on the patio and sipping wine - or guzzling beer is a great way to end (or start) the day! Paul More

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...
