“Weekend Getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

Me and my wife wanted to get away from pressures and problems of a married life. We went to visit a couple of our college friends in santa barbara, by recommendation of our friends we stayed in Eagle Inn. It was a great hotel, great food and friendly staff but what I liked the most was the convenient location of the hotel.

The highlight of our trip was during the last day of our stay, they offered a free bike for a day the hotel is near the beach so we had a great view fresh air and friendly people. We had a great time I definitely recommend this hotel its a great place for a holiday getaway.

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. I will definetly be back! Thanks!

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 place. In addition to the fresh, warm and inviting decorating style, the location is a short walk to State Street and all that Santa Barbara has to offer, The best news is that the inn is located in a quiet, secluded residential area. Simply, the perfect getaway!

Room Tip: The cottages in the back are wonderful!

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 not disappoint us in anyway. Our room was large and very bright with a great balcony and a gas fireplace. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. The bed was unbelievably comfortable and the fact that the facility is very quiet made for three very restful days. A cooked breakfast is available as well as a continental breakfast. We found the options rather limited with respect to the continental breakfast which we tend to prefer which is the only slight negative we have respecting this inn. We would most definitely stay here again if and when we next visit Santa Barbara and we would most certainly recommend this facility to others. It is close to the water, the Amtrak Station and State Street so it has a great location.

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 maintained very well and it's very comfortable.

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 restaurant. The staff is very professional--courteous and respectful without being superficial. Handy to the beach and the bikes are great--ride along the beach or take to State street. If we are able to return, we'll want to stay at the Eagle Inn.

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, including the bed - which can often be a deal-breaker. Even the sheets got my notice as they were soft and inviting rather than the stiff bleached sheets you can receive at other hotels. Sheila was wonderful in helping me select a room that would be good for us and we loved the fireplace. We'll definitely stay again!
