The Eagle Inn

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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

The hotel is a great location. You can walk to the beach or half a mile to restaurants or bars. It has a fantastic breakfast that is included and cookies in the afternoon. The rooms are outdated in decorations but comfortable with a fridge and microwave.

This property is in a great location-walking distance to Stearn's Wharf, the Harbor, and the Funk Zone on State Street. It is a beautiful property and is well-maintained. They offer a different breakfast entree each morning, and the staff are extremely welcoming and helpful in arranging activities in the area. Would highly recommend.

Quaint, charming place to stay just a couple blocks off the beach. Not much of a view, but it's in a very quiet area. It's listed as a B&B, but actually, it's much more like a nicely decorated indie hotel. Staff was great and very helpful. I'd stay again for sure.

We enjoyed our stay at the Eagle Inn very much...very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. Very quiet and pleasant location. The only drawback, and it was minor, was the pillow....the one provided was too firm for me. Next time I will bring my own. We are looking forward to returning and will come by train since it is walking distance from the train station. I would unhesitatingly recommend it to others.

Room was a bit outdated and small, but comfortable. Convenient location.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights and we had a great experience. It feels homey and very welcoming. This is a small facility and the staff is friendly and very accommodating. Every morning we awoke to the smell of breakfast waiting for us. Small dining area where you had a choice of a hot prepared meal or a yogurt & cereal. The first morning it was waffles with scrambled eggs and sausage while the next, it was Mexican omelet. Each meal also came with a bowl of fresh fruits and a glass of orange juice. A huge selection of DVD’s (over 100) you can select from for free. We were in a small standard queen unit upstairs, but it fit our needs. Bed was very comfortable. Over 50 different TV channels with HBO. We could not have asked for more. It is located in a residential area, 2 blocks away from the street aligning the beach. Not too far a walk to State Street and the Stearns Wharf (maybe 1/3 a mile). We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful small hotel, great location , nice staff, good service, a real breakfast ... but surprisingly low end, uncomfortable pillows and bedding actually made it difficult to sleep! I don't like writing negative reviews, but I hope this one helps because it's the type of hotel that would otherwise gain loyal customers.

Close to the beach, walking distance to restaurants, very relaxing after leaving 4 days at Disney with the grandkidsp

Came here for a weekend getaway, the hotel is in a great location 2 blocks from beach 10 minute walk to state street, there was breakfast every AM eggs, yogurt, lox and bagel a few options a day. The only downside was our room was pretty small a double bed not a queen. The staff was great friendly free bikes to ride. the parking does fill up quickly but it is in walking distance

Very clean and comfy. Great breakfast dining area.

Even though my room was not ready when I arrived in the early afternoon, they made an effort to get the room ready for me within 20 minutes. The room was a nice size (I had a queen) and the location was very convenient to the downtown shops and restaurants. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at The Eagle Inn again.

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.

rated 4 star--not our room for same rack price as a suite with a sitting room, we got the smallest room in the place. at the top of the stairs( no elevator; not disclosed), and at the busy street. booked well in advance too.
