“Great accommodation in an excellent location”
Reviewed 29 October 2011

We booked on line and stayed at the Eagle Inn on the first two nights of our road trip in the USA. We were pleasantly surprised with our room and the staff were extremely helpful. Being just a short walk to the beach and shopping made the location so convenient. We would definitely stay there again.

We stayed here for three nights on early October 2011. The weather was perfect. This is a great spot to get away for the weekend.It was close to the beach and close to shopping and lots of restaurants. We had our own veranda which was really nice in the morning to sit out there with your coffee or in the evning with your glass of wine. Once it started to get chilly in the evening we would go back in our room and turn on the fireplace. It was so relaxing. The breakfast was included and it was served to you at your table which was realy nice. We will be back.

Room Tip: Our room was #220 and it had a veranda which was quite nice it was in the sun for a better part of t...

We recently stay the weekend at The Eagle Inn. We really were charmed by the Inn the moment we walked into the lobby. The young lady at the desk greeted us with a welcoming smile and there were freshed baked cookies to enjoy. Our room was cozy and quient, with a closet to hold all our things. At first we notice that there was no air circulation, but after using the fan and shuttered window, all was great. Our bathroom was really lovely. Large and remodeled. We even had two shower heads in a large shower. Only two blocks from the beach and a quick ride into town made the location was perfect. The breakfasts were fantastic, with a different menu each day, served beautifully in a sunny dining room. The personalized service from the front desk was really the topper. We were able to get dinner reservations and some fantastic suggestions for meals as well as touring tips.I would say that the only downside was the parking. The lot became over filled in the evening and street parking wasn't really an option. On that note I will say though that the patrons of the Inn just coopatively double parked and moved their cars so by morning there was no issue.

Recently stayed for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon. I booked the Santa Rosa cottage and was not disappointed. Very private and romantic room, ideal for us. Loved the fresh breakfast that was delivered to our door each morning at our requested time. Plenty included for breakfast and a good selection to choose from, which we did the night before. Loved the whirlpool bath, although the jets are not very powerful. The bed was very comfortable with the soften sheets I’ve ever sleep on.

Good location near the beach and the walk to State Street was only about 10 mins away to the bottom end. Walked from the hotel to the top end of State Street and back again a couple of times. Also used the free bikes to ride along the coastal path. Very helpful and friendly staff at reception who made us feel very welcomed.

Loved Santa Barbara as a place, maybe not as beautiful as Carmel but still very nice. I was surprised how many homeless people and tramps were on State Street.

We stayed in one of the cottages & had the most amazing week's stay! It was so pampering to have breakfast delivered to our room every morning, @ our requested time! Our private patio was a thoughtful extension of the room, where we enjoyed morning coffee & an evening glass of wine. The complimentary beach cruisers were the best transportation for us! They allowed us to enjoy the beautiful sites! We loved riding along the beach path & all around town. This quiet neighborhood Inn is only 2 blocks from the beach/pier, close to restaurants, & downtown shops. It rained on our 2nd day & we loved staying in, snuggling on our sofa w/ coffee in front of the fireplace. That's how vacation should be & we can't wait to return!!

Room Tip: Our first stay, we were in a king room w/ jacuzzi tub upstairs in the main building & it was nic...

Great hotel and pretty good location. Short walk to the beach and the pier. Slightly lover walk to state street and the shops and restaurants. Room was clean and confortable. Slightly over the top on the no. of pillows on the bed (11) but no complaint. Funny.

The Eagle Inn was the primary hotel for my son's August wedding weekend. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more concerned about everything working out just right. The breakfasts were fantastic. The location is super. You can walk to State Street or to the beach in just minutes. I stayed in the Santa Barbara Suite and felt I could just move right in. It felt like home--or even better!
