We spent one night at the Eagle Inn and I have only good things to say about this cozy, charming hotel. Our room was smaller but had all amenities needed for comfort in room. Super soft sheets and firm mattress, breakfast included. We had to leave early, breakfast started at 7:30a so we missed it. Location is great, just 5...

Sorry you missed the breakfast! Thanks for writing this review of your stay. I'm glad you found everything to be perfect. We get lots of compliments about the sheets. We do have them for sale....Comphy Company is the manufacturer. Thank you for staying with us. Hopefully we'll see you again. Paul

We spent two nights at the Eagle Inn, and give it high marks on every point! First of all, the architecture is totally charming, nostalgic Spanish Revival and oh so Santa Barbara. Parking is on site and ample, at least for the off season. Rooms are decorated with taste and are very welcoming-- but do take note: no elevator to...

Well I'm very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay so much. Thank you for writing this review. Also a very good tip about the elevator. Yes if stairs are difficult, please request a ground floor room. It sounds like you had a great time here. Thank you and I look forward to your next visit. Paul

The room was clean and had a lot of space. The breakfast was great. The front desk people was very friendly. They have 🚲 available for free. We had a nice ride through the city. I will definitely recommended.

We weren't sure what to expect from the Eagle Inn and were very pleasantly surprised. The hotel is lovely and the room was very clean with a comfortable bed. The staff was great and very helpful. The breakfast was wonderful- waiter service with a choice of 3 menu options. The best part was that the hotel provided bicycles that we...

Thanks for your great review! I really do appreciate your staying with us. I am very happy that you enjoyed your stay. Those bikes are a popular amenity that we provide. Cruising along the bike path right by the beach is a great way to spend some time while in Santa Barbara. I'm glad you had the opportunity! Thanks again...

Great room choices, extremely pleasant staff. Will be staying there again soon. Quite, secluded, romantic. Just arrived in afternoon and missed out on some of the room set up extras. Otherwise great property.

Expected much more. Staffed by young kids who lack proper training and not particularly helpful e.g. There is no elevator but staff did not offer to help me lift luggage up to my room. Overpriced..,..

I discovered the Eagle Inn by chance when I was walking in the neighborhood behind the Amtrak station. The architecture is lovely, and the inn is very nicely furnished. It is within walking distance of State street and the Amtrak Station. Staff is friendly and helpful, and the inn is kept very clean.

Very nice hotel in beautiful and very American setting - makes your feel like in a movie: Back to the Future. Not to be missed: The Brewhouse round the corner and its steaks, burgers and great dark ales.
