Couldn't beat the price and location. Rooms are much larger than most near beach. Half mile walk to State Street core. A few blocks from the beach. Quiet neighborhood. Free parking - which is a rarity in SB. Will stay here again. Rooms are clean and quiet too. Free wifi that actually works

It was an amazing experience! We loved everything about our room, it was perfection. We stayed in San Clemente casita, which was luxurious, private, and romantic. It was a memorable birthday for my husband.

We stayed in one of the rooms out the back - separate to the main inn - which was very comfortable, quiet and pleasant. The room itself is not huge but very well set up and modern. The fireplace is a nice touch ... the only criticism was the plantation shutters on the windows which look great but don't block...

We love this little inn, from the Spanish-style architecture, to the location by the beach, the free beach cruisers, and the delicious cookies they leave for guests each day in the lobby. We have stayed several times at the Eagle Inn. The bungalows are my favorite lodging choice, but the main building also has its own charm along with views...

Well placed for walking to beach and wharf. Took trolley bus $0.25 each from wharf to end of shops- great way to see everything. Sad that Macy's is closing- huge building in middle of main road. Evening food market (Tuesday) was interesting. Went to brew house two blocks from hotel- excellent food at good prices and great beer just very...

Found this site on tripadvisor and extremely pleased. While I thought the price was on the high side, the Inn is very nice, clean, friendly staff, nice breakfast and property grounds. Over 2 different stay's within a 2 week period, I stayed in different rooms and different buildings. The rooms in the bungalow rooms are larger and quite comfortable. I...

This place seemed like a hidden gem. Just a short walk from the beach, it is perfectly placed for you to investigate what Santa Barbara has to offer. Both the place and the staff were very chilled out, making it a very easy place to relax.

Great Spanish charm. We have stayed here on our visits to Santa Barbara three times and we love it. The staff is wonderful and the inn is lovely. It is close to the ocean and to downtown. Right now, they are in the process of re-doing their kitchen and breakfast area. I look forward to our next visit.

EAGLE INN is really nice place; not perfect, but lovely. Great Staff and the location can't be beat. 2 blocks from Ocean and 3 blks from Amtrak station - I walked everywhere the 4 days I was there during New Year weekend... I will continue to use it as a 'getaway' from Atlanta. I walked the beach walk every morning.....

Thank you for your nice review of The Eagle Inn. Our staff tries really hard to be friendly and helpful. I'm glad you got to walk around the beach area so much. I love the salty air in the morning!

Friendly welcome. Room comfortable but rather small (cannot remember the room number) while our friends were lucky to get a larger room for the same price (better make sure you have room size confirmed when booking...). Breakfast was limited to 2 options but prepared with creativity and taste.
