Room was very nice, very comfortable and excellent breakfast and location. However don't assume there will be parking - even though the web site states parking is included - as we weren't able to park in the site lot for 2 of 3 nights. Wrote the general manager directly with no response.

Great location - easy walking distance to funk zone/the lark (c. 8 mins), easy parking, friendly staff. Breakfast was delivered to our room free of charge, so we were able to eat in our little porch in the morning. Room was cosy but not noticeable small - but a little bit dated. Didn't hear any other guests whilst we were... More

This small hotel, convenient to the beach, is located in a charming vintage building in downtown Santa Barbara. Our second floor room was very comfortable, and although it was not an especially warm night, we ran the individual air conditioning unit so that we could keep the (side, residential) street side windows closed. The A/C unit was perfect and whisper... More

Thank you for writing a review of your stay. August is, by far, the most popular and expensive month to visit. Next time you come, book direct with the hotel and let us know you're a repeat visitor. You'll receive a discount from us for your patronage. And thank you for letting me know about the late arriving staff members. More

My wife and I stayed in one of the casitas (cottages). We really enjoyed it. This place is about a 3 minute walk to the ocean, just a few blocks from State Street and badically near all the highly rated restaurants. Breakfast can be brought to your room and while some of the reviews complained about it, we actually enjoyed... More

Hotel location is amazing. You can easily and rapidly walk to the beach, Funk Zone, Stearns Wharf and several restaurants in the area. Hotel room is spacious, warmly comfortable and silent. Breakfast was very good, tasty food and kind people to serve. There was only one person at the front desk at the time of check-in, it took a little... More

My husband and I had stayed at the Eagle Inn before and we're happy with our stay previously in the back building. Don't know if management or staff has changed, but this time was a disappointment in the main building. Not enough parking for guests or parking not monitored that it was only guests. The option we were offered was... More

I'm sorry that you were not able to find a parking space in our lot during your stay. It is true that we occasionally don't have enough spaces for the number of cars that arrive. As you were told, there is street parking available overnight. There are a number of hotels in our area that charge their guests more than... More

The Eagle Inn was very nice, but left feeling our experience was lacking. The staff was friendly and room was decent, but for the price we expected more. We would return, but not before looking into other options.

great place. VERY quiet, clean, beautiful views, great location. rooms are all updated, free breakfast brought to your room each morning, no complaints. You are just two blocks from the wharf, and a shorter walk to state street. Very happy with our stay

We loved everything about the Eagle Inn! It was cozy, friendly, charming, and in a perfect location. The beds were wonderful and the breakfast outstanding. The staff was so friendly and even lent us chairs so we could have a late afternoon on the beach.
