This hotel has a friendly, welcoming staff, nicely appointed rooms and bathrooms and comfortable beds. It is two blocks from the ocean and the pier and within walking distance to restaurants and shops. It's a short walk to the arts and crafts fair held every Sunday near the pier. It is reasonably priced.

We stayed at the Eagle Inn, for four nights and we were happily surprised by
the room, the staff and the location. The San Nicholas room we stayed in was just amazing. We enjoyed the double size jacuzzi, and the bed was sooo comfortable. We had not expected the perfect cozy, quiet environment.
I wish everyone could have the wonderful experience we had. The Inn even
has bicycles for guest to use free of charge, and since it is a few blocks from the pier and a few streets over from State street, the main street
through town, bicycles were fun to use. The staff was so nice. It felt like
we were staying with family.

Lovely Mediterranean-style hotel close to beautiful beach, good restaurants, shopping on State Street. Courteous, helpful staff. Reasonably priced.

The Eagle Inn was a luxurious stay after a long road trip. It's a bit off the beach but in a lovely location. The hotel is only a few blocks from the beach, close enough for a nighttime stroll. The room was super clean and the bathrooms were delux.

We stayed in the San Clemente and loved all of the extra space.

If you are in town for dinner I recommend drinks at Joe's and dinner at The Palace around the corner, delish!

From the minute we walked in the staff made us feel right at home. They gave us restaurant recommendations, tips on things to do in the area as well as other parts of California...they were absolutely wonderful. We didn't want to stay at a chain hotel so this was an awesome place to stay where we could feel comfortable and experience the Santa Barbara culture. They made us feel so at home! We loved it and will definitely go back!

This was the fourth time my wife and I have stayed at the Eagle Inn. It just keeps getting better. They have just recently added four brand new "cottages." These are actually beautiful suites with king beds, flat screen TV's, fireplaces and huge deep jaccuzzi tubs. These include my all time favorite shower with two shower heads. There is a sitting area with couch, chair and table and refrig and microwave. I could live here.
The staff has always been very nice and helpful with tips about restaurants and activities.Of course we never get past the Palace Grill and Brophy Brothers. The Palace off State St. on Ortega and Brophy's overlooking the habour and the best part is they are both within walking distance. We have recommended this place to all of our friends and can't wait to visit again.

Clean, quiet, friendly, charming, just cannot say enough. Sits in a residential neighborhood with old Santa Barbara charm. I am a walker and this is paradise. Short walk (2blks) to Marina and Beach. Marina has great restaurants and is not as crowded as Stearns Wharf, which is about a 15 min walk. If you walk to Stearns, you can catch shuttle bus (free) and travel up and down State St. Lots of shopping, small restuarants (try the TAJ for great Indian cuisine) and theatres. Train station is 5 min walk away, if you want to come in by train. If you are adventurous - take the bus to the end of the line on State and walk to the Mission. It is only a mile walk through a incredible neighborhood and the Mission is well worth the time. Or try the 4 mile walk to Hendry's beach; great food, wonderful restored wetland, incredible beach - well worth a day's trip on foot. I come here yearly for a 5-day getaway and always leave relaxed. Staff is great, continental breakfast is fresh, filling and served in a wonderful room with a balcony table - which I heartily recommend. Parking is off the street. Rates are very reasonable for this area and lower than surrounding hotels. You cannot go wrong.
