Very nice hotel in beautiful and very American setting - makes your feel like in a movie: Back to the Future. Not to be missed: The Brewhouse round the corner and its steaks, burgers and great dark ales.

The Brewhouse is one of our favorite places to go. The menu is good and the beer they make there is exceptional too. Thanks for choosing The Eagle Inn and thank you for writing such a nice review. Please do come visit us again soon.

We were blown away by this beautiful inn. It starts with a great location, clean and large rooms, very friendly staff and complemented with a lovely in house cooked breakfast! They also offered free bikes which was great! Very much recommend this hotel.

This was a most charming hotel. It was more like a bed and breakfast. The breakfasts were outstanding. Not buffet style but actual menu items each morning served to you. The hotel was close to the water and pier and within walking distance of the wine tastings. We loved it and would definitely stay here if we are in Santa...

I choose the Eagle Inn based on Trip Advisor's ratings and was definitely not disappointed. We stayed for two nights in this wonderful hotel, which was centrally located. The room was very pleasant, beds were good and the stay was overall very satisfactory. We will definitely book this hotel for our next trip to Santa Barbara.

Great place for the entire family to stay! We were in town for a wedding. Had to find a place big enough for us and our 2 adult children.

I love this place. It's the quaintest and most beautiful bed & breakfast.Breakfast is always homemade and wonderful. The sheets are divine. The design is beautiful, old Spanish with so much character, but also so homey. Every time I bring people there, they are floored.

Great staff, clean rooms, good value and free bikes make staying here a no brainer in Santa Barbara. There are a few down sides. Bad coffee, breakfast casserole was very bland, don't try it and the juice is from concentrate. Advice, order the yogurt and granola, it's the safest bet.

Bed was too soft. No support. Water pressure in shower very low. Not enough parking space for all cars so they parked in the lot anyway. Close to pier and restaurants. Did not receive bill before leaving.
