“European Flair”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

This inn is truly an inn in the European sense. There is a wide variety of rooms from a simple queen to a spacious casita, a wide variety of charming decor, and luscious breakfasts served to personal tastes in either your room, or in the brightly comfortable dining room. The staff is welcoming and friendly, and the location can't be more convenient to a walk on the beach or a stroll downtown. One morning we had lox and bagels and fresh fruit delivered to our casita, and another morning we joined guests in the dining room for a made-to-order omelet. If cookie-cutter corporate is what you're looking for, this is not it. If meeting the international set over breakfast is what you're looking for, the Eagle Inn should be your choice.

Room Tip: The Santa Rosa casita has a marvelous soaking tub and a balcony with a view of palm trees on the oce...

We are returning guests and this time with a toddler in tow. The Inn has a warm and welcoming feel. The employees and management are wonderful and helpful. This place relaxes you and we had a great full breakfast with bagels, lox, smoked salmon. The bathrooms, like our first visit, were roomy and very clean!

Santa Barbara is one of our favorite places when we travel from Central California. The Eagle Inn has become our favorite place to stay in Santa Barbara. Close to the beach, State Street, and the owners, management, staff treat veterans with a lot of respect!

Love this place! The staff was great, everything was clean and breakfast was delicious. No complaints. We stayed here for our honeymoon and would come back in a heartbeat! Great location, very easy walk to the beach and wharf/pier. It's an easy walk to State Street and the shuttle that takes you up and down State St.

Room Tip: We got a king room with a fireplace and spa tub...well worth it!

We really enjoyed our stay over Thanksgiving holiday. The location can't be beat - 2 blocks from the beach, close to the harbor and we loved the walk to the end of the pier. All hotel folks were very friendly and helpful. Comfortable room with queen bed. Breakfasts were terrific

Room Tip: Our room on the ground floor was just behind the reception desk, convenient and very quiet.

This is a favorite place for anniversaries for us, with the very comfortable and inviting rooms with jacuzzis. You can't beat the location - walk to the beach, pier and downtown. We felt very well cared for with delicious breakfasts delivered to our room when we wanted it, cookies in the afternoon, bikes to use for beach cruising, and very attentive staff. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Go for the jacuzzi - definitely worth it!
