Excellent place for a short stay

Truly an exceptional value. The place is squeaky clean, comfortable, well located and the staff is happy and welcoming. We loved the location - walk to beach or to downtown, or both, as we did on one long walk from the hotel to the wharf and then all the way to the Mission and back. The neighborhood is tidy, quiet and charming -- near the marina and beach, and also a pleasant walk to State Street shops and restaurants. The room was perfect for the price. It was not crowded, it was clean, the bathroom was new and scrubbed. The bedding was fine on the king bed. There was a bit of noise from people walking overhead. Next time we'd request a 2nd floor room, but hey, the value is terrific. Breakfast was good - plates of fresh fruit, plus a choice of eggs or yogurt & granola. Healthy way to start the day. There is no restaurant at the hotel, but you can walk to beachfront places or head uptown to everything from Irish pubs to fine Cal-diterranian cuisine. We prefer to get out and see the town anyway. This is a good place. Perfect for a 2 night stay in the best part of Santa Barbara.

A shopkeeper recommended a meal at Opal, a restaurant on State Street. Seemed to be frequented by locals, good food & drink. We sat at the bar & talked to staff to get ideas on what to do. Food was healthy & tasty, experience was fun.

Wonderful little hacienda

The Eagle Inn is a fantastic little hotel. It's a quaint, well-kept building with a polite staff, located just a few blocks off of the beach and within walking distance of pretty much anything you want to do in Santa Barbara. They provide a great breakfast every morning -- not the continental variety (stale cereal, plastic danish and watery juice), but an actual cooked-to-order meal that varies each day. Though Santa Barbara is one of the more forgiving climates, the rooms have air conditioning, which is a nice plus if you forget to open the windows. I only have two minor gripes about the stay: a) the bedding, though very comfortable and high-end, was a bit excessive given the aforementioned warm climate. I would peel off the comforter and then find that the flimsy sheet and blanket underneath just weren't enough. The second gripe, which is VERY minor, is that the TV in the room was an old CRT unit. I didn't spend much time, if any, watching TV while I was in Santa Barbara, but a little detail like replacing the old TV with a modern flat-panel unit always inspires confidence in the hotel's upkeep. Overall? I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Stay away from Eladio's, which is right across from the wharf. It came highly reviewed for some reason, but the decor was outdated, the staff inattentive, and the food was mediocre at the very best. Walk a block down to FisHouse instead.

Comfortable and great location

Friendly staff and great breakfast. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Walking distance to harbor and downtown State St. Home-baked cookies were also a nice touch!

Very nice small hotel

Staff was great and helpful in suggesting dining experiences. The location was great and attractions were very easy to get to. Couple of things that needed to be worked on. The soap should be replaced every night. Only had a small bar for the two of us for two nights. The room was a bit stuffy but not a major issue. However, outside noise was annoying. A party was going on Friday night outside of the hotel and Saturday night had noise somewhere too. For those who do not know Santa Barbara, passenger and freight trains can be heard all the time. They might be required to sound their horns as they enter the town and it can be heard all day and night. Nice morning continental breakfast and front desk staff were outstanding. Overall it was a good experience though

A Wonderful Stay!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Eagle Inn. The location was great and the staff even let us check in a little bit early. We would definitely come back and stay here before we tried anywhere else. We recommend the room with the veranda it was great!
