I loved my stay. I will stay again. Fast easy check in and out.

Our room was spacious with a small terrace where we could sit and "people" watch. It was lovely.

Good location to the wharf and pier. Clean room and good breakfast.

Our room was fantastic with a fire place and a large balcony.

Customer service and breakfast were great. Left a special note and treats for our anniversary. Great location. Television and safe were both broken and we couldn’t use them. Overwhelming air freshener in the room that left me with a headache.

The Eagle Inn is a hidden gem with a convenient location. The management and staff were incredibly attentive. I especially recommend their casitas if you want a little extra space and more comforts of home. Definitely recommend.

This is a very nice boutique hotel, but they need to follow through on some details. It is located in a very quiet neighborhood of apartments, within walking distance of the harbor, the beach, and State Street, provided you like to walk. The rooms are nicely furnished in an attractive Spanish motif. The room is a decent size but not large. The bathroom had the hottest water of any hotel we've ever stayed in. If you dislike anonymous chain motels, you will like this small hotel. On the negative side, there is inadequate parking for all guests in the hotel lot, so you may be forced to park on the street. There is no elevator to the second floor so if you have any disability, you will be stuck on the first floor. There is no staff on duty from 10:00 PM until 8:00 AM so if there is any emergency, you will have to call them. The included breakfast was average.

Stayed in Queen Room with porch. Lovely. Fireplace. Spacious. Hardwood floors. Simple decor. Clean. But the roof leaked. ALOT. Drip Drip Drip all night. When I approached staff I was told to put a garbage can under the drip. I understand that this can happen in older buildings. But two nights of dripping, one into a garbage can does hamper best rest and also detracts from a sense of wellbeing and overall comfort of the room. The breakfast staff were outstanding; the food delicious. But desk staff (except the night staff) seemed completely unfazed by the fact that I showed up late to an unkempt room. When moved I was given the drippy room. Bikes were fun and really useful. Felt the desk staff was more scrutinizing than welcoming. Like I was an intruder in the hotel. I traveled as a single, and would seek out a similar accommodation type again, but maybe not the Eagle Inn.It is a great spot for being in Santa Barbara. Near the train station, and a lovely morning walk less than 2 minutes and you're on the back path and new the harbor. That was glorious.

I love the Spanish theme. The rooms are excellent- clean, so comfortable, and the atmosphere is homey and friendly.I enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. There is a choice of breakfasts and we were courteously served rather than helping oneself to a buffet.

Stayed in the King room, felt a little small and was near check in area. (listened to suit cases rolling over tiles during late hours) Would stay again in larger room and away from check in. (Go for King Suite or Larger)

The staff makes you feel at home, really comfortable room and breakfast is good

Sheets had black spots when I checked in. Requested new sheets and made our own bed. Noticed a bed bug monitor on the floor. Dining room closed and disgusting breakfast that never arrived our second morning. Wouldn't credit me for this.

Over all my experience was pleasant. If you happen to get the first room down stairs by the entrance do not take it . The room was noisy and I was woken up by the kitchen staff making breakfast at 6am

good hotel, staff was nice, room was clean, could use updating the design and decorations in room

Fine location. Two blocks from the beach, nice little lobby. Rooms were quaint but a bit small. Ours had a queen bed, would have preferred a king. Nicely renovated older building but a little noisy just from people moving about in other rooms. My wife liked it a lot and I would be OK with staying there again. Included breakfast was nice with wait staff but selections are limited. Good off-street parking. No regrets, we enjoyed our stay.

Love this hotel. Conveniently located with loaner bikes and breakfast included
