After reading reviews and pricing hotels we picked the Eagle. The only room available was the King size with a Jacuzzi, so we splurged. Santa Barbara is very pricey on the weekends - the hotels were all booked while we were there. We arrived on a Thursday and left on Tuesday, so we got the AAA discounted rate for Thursday, Sunday and Monday nights and paid the full rate for Friday and Saturday. The room was clean, the Jacuzzi was great. The staff were friendly and helpful.
The hotel is 2 blocks from the beach in the harbor. We walked and took the trolley everywhere, so we didn't have to move the car once. Parking at the hotel is good.
The continental breakfast was cereal, bagels, mufins, danish, orange juice and cut fruit. Not bad. The staff were quick to refill the milk and juice most of the time. There was also a small basket placed in our room after the first night with 2 water bottles, fruit, chips and cookies - this was not refilled. There were also cookies in the lobby in the afternoon (around 4pm).
There are trains which run through Santa Barbara at night and blow their whistles - so if that will bug you, SB is not for you.
The room temperature was comfortable.
We enjoyed our stay at the Eagle Inn and would recommend it.
