My wife and I were happy to find the Eagle in so charming when we arrived in Santa Barbara. The classic Spanish design fits right in with the "Santa Barbara lifestyle".
The location is just a block form the beach and this allows for a great price and it is peaceful.
We stayed in one of the remodeled cottages and found it charming.
Extras: free use of bikes to use on the beach strand path, continetal breakfast, Coffe and cookies plus apples during the day. Free parking close to the rooms.

We stayed at the Eagle Inn in Santa Barbara in April 2009 during a vacation to Southern California. We unfortunately only got to stay one night before traveling on, but it was worth stopping at along our trip.

We stayed in the Santa Rosa Cottage. It was very private, well decorated, and very comfortable. The bed was comfy, and there was even a kitchen area to make coffee etc. The best part of the room was the huge whirpool tub and the double headed shower! The bathroom was amazing. I loved the balcony as well. We grabbed continental breakfast and took it back to our room and sat on the balcony and enjoyed the morning.

The breakfast was simple, but was very good, and the inn was very clean, and the service was really great. We arrived late due to traffic along the way and they offered us a late check out so we could enjoy the room a bit more. The only complaint I would have is it was a bit noisy in the morning, but nothing bad enough to really annoy us. We would definitely return and would love to stay for longer! The outside was stunning as well - beautiful trees, flowers and landscaping. This is the PERFECT room for a honeymoon, anniversary or romantic get away.

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon, as part of our road trip through California and we were really impressed. The rooms are clean and quiet and it's an easy walk to the beaches. We had a car, but even without, the walk into the main part of town to restaurants and bars is really pleasant and takes about a half an hour, at the most. The hotel offers a free internet terminal and puts on a very nice continental breakfast each day. Would definitely stay here again.

I stay in Santa Barbara often and have felt that hotels in this town routinely take advantage of visitors with advertisements of lovely lodging facilities that really don't exist that way you might be led to think. Not so the Eagle Inn. This is a wonderful find especially for the frequent visitor to Santa Barbara that needs a quiet, classy and comfortable place to stay either for business or as a convenient base for enjoying the area on holiday. The Eagle is not a resort type property with pools and hot tubs etc. It is however a lovely, and well appointed boutique hotel within walking distance (but not too close to the noise) of Santa Barbara harbor area and beaches. The location also offers easy downtown access. I found the value of this lovely hotel very good for the Santa Barbara area. My favorite for the money so far!

We stayed for a few days and it was an excellent choice. Very nice breakfast, great location where you can walk to everything (State Street, beaches, other areas in town) but secluded enough that it was quite private. We had a regular suite but a great shower, nice towels, and bedding. We had a problem with our car and the manager of the hotel was kind enough to use his AAA membership to get someone to come over and give us a jump. Great serice all around.

Pre-booked one of the newer cottages (Santa barbara) and the space, coupled with the amentities in the appartment, made the stay a real treat and at a very reasonable price. It was laid out with a great deat of attention to detail and staff were very happy to supply what else we needed.
The one beware for anyone is the breakfast staff don't have a great command of English, so getting things from them in the morning was a challenge.

I came into town for a friend's wedding over a long weekend. We only needed to stay one night, as we were being put up in a villa for the first couple of days. I booked a room at the Eagle Inn for my girlfriend and I. From the first moment, we were treated like royalty. Our room was upgraded without our asking. We had a room/suite with a jacuzzi, inside the living room. Needless to say we made the most of it, spending some time in it, between an afternoon on the beach, and a night out to dinner on State Street. We couldn't have asked for a better stay. Not only would I recommend the Eagle Inn to anyone that I know, but I will book a room there, next time I come into Santa Barbara....
