We have stayed at the Eagle Inn twice now and each stay has been welcoming, comfortable, and thoroughly delightful. Our first stay was in one of the standard rooms and we loved it. The second stay we splurged just a little bit and stayed in the Santa Catalina Cottage. The sitting room with fireplace and spacious bathroom were nice touches... More

Recently I have been experiencing hypertension attacks for weeks because of too much work without rest. A friend advised me to rest up at Santa Barbara because it was far away from my office and it had enjoyable accommodations. I spent my time sitting on a couch in front of the seashore reading a nice book or taking my time... More

We lucked into a last minute reservation at the Eagle Inn and couldn't have been happier. The location is perfect ~ a mere 2 blocks from the beach, the hotel architecture and style are charming, classic Santa Barbara, our room was delightful and well appointed, and the made-to-order breakfast was delicious. We've already booked our next stay.

It was a great hotel, great food and friendly staff but what I liked the most was the convenient location of... More

The Eagle Inn is our favorite place to stay in Santa Barbara. It's location is great to be able to enjoy Santa Barbara all in walking distance. This was our second time staying here and it was just as great as the first time. Breakfast was served in our room which was totally unexpected, but was definetly a great perk.... More

We stayed there for the weekend of Valentine's Day, and although the place was booked, we were totally pampered in every way! The food, service, and ambiance are beyond compare, and our room - The San Nicolas - was beyond our expectations! If you have ANY inkling that you may spending time in Santa Barbara, The Eagle Inn is THE... More

We like to travel by train and close proximity to the Amtrak Station was a consideration in selecting the Eagle Inn. We had stayed at another location previously and while we found it to be very good a year ago, more recent, highly negative, reviews on Tripadvisor and other sites gave us cause to look elsewhere. The Eagle Inn did... More

The place is beautiful from the classic lobby to the carved wooden doors. They even have a nice little patio area surrounded by tall shrubs where you can relax and look at the palm trees and blue sky. The breakfast room was great and I had no idea they would be serving such a great breakfast. The place obviously is... More

I found the Eagle in rated 4.5 out of 5 on YELP. Although I expected it to be nice it exceeded my expectations. The room was large, the bed was very comfortable, the shower was large and the shower head was higher than my 6'4" son. The morning breakfast was elegant--would have easily cost $10 or more at the typical... More

I was traveling with my 16-yr. old daughter up to a concert in San Francisco and stayed over a night in the San Clemente Room. It was so beautiful and offered so much, we were sorry we had to get on the road so early the next day. Next time we'll plan to stay longer. The whole room was comfortable,... More
