My wife & I stayed at the Eagle Inn the night of Friday 7/1 during our week-long drive from Los Angeles to the Bay area. The Inn is a lovely, former 2-story apartment house that was tastefully remodeled, is quite affordable, and has a terrific location two blocks from the water and an easy walk to the main pier and...

Well positioned and appointed hotel near the waterfront at Santa Barbara allowing one to more or less walk the town and take in the sights. Good breakfast, helpful staff and free Wi-Fi make for an enjoyable and unhurried stay.

I can't express how much I enjoy staying at Eagle Inn. It's walking distance from restaurants, the beach, and State Street. The staff is more than helpful. The new breakfast served restaurant style or brought to your room is delicious. They even offer espresso drinks with your meal. If you have a chance to stay there, you will love it... More

We stayed in beautiful Santa Barbara at this lovely B&B for only 1 night and made the most of it with a walk along the beach after dining at one of a number of restaurants a few minutes walk from the B&B. We arrived in Santa Barbara on the Amtrak Surfliner train from Los Angeles Union Station which was punctual... More

The Eagle Inn has the best of both worlds, a quiet neighborhood location, but it is also within walking distance of east/west beaches, the harbor, and the shopping, restaurants, and other attractions State Street has to offer. The beds are outfitted with a comfortable mattress and soft high threat count sheets. The service is friendly and helpful. I've stayed at... More

We just returned from a wonderful stay at the Eagle Inn in Santa Barbara. We stayed in room 220....fireplace, large veranda facing the ocean and beautiful palms, and even a small alcove complete with mini fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. In the morning, we had the treat of a light, healthy, breakfast being delivered right to our room for us... More

I was married a month ago and most of my guests stayed at the Eagle or the Franciscan (across the street). Everyone had a marvelous say and the staff at both hotels were very accommodating and friendly. I had just gotten over a horrible experience trying to book a group rate at the Lemon Tree Inn, and it was a... More

We did a two night stay with our kids--12 and 2 1/2 years old. We requested the one room that also has a full kitchen. This turned out to be a nice bonus. In addition, the hotel is charming, with an old-world feel, and is a fantastic location. We took the train in and were able to walk easily from... More

Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Please remember for your next visit that if you have specific requirements such as a bath tub you should ask when making the reservation. That way you won't be disappointed when you arrive. Thanks for staying with us, and we look forward to your next visit. More

Stayed here with my sis three years ago and wanted to be somewhere familiar on a road trip home. The lobby has been redone in more simple tones, which I liked. The buffet continental breakfast has been done away with and instead there were two offerings for breakfast accompanied with fresh fruit and the coffee drink of your choice -... More

Great to have you stay with us again. Thanks for coming back. I'm glad you noticed the renovated lobby. We thought a lot about what to do with the space. Really happy it turned out so well! We are constantly trying to improve our hotel and waitress service with hot entrees at breakfast rather than buffet style seemed to be... More
