Historical Traveler Reviews Eagle Inn Santa Barbara
As perfect as Possible
The hotel is only 2 blocks from the beach and the wharf; you can see the water when you are driving down the road. We stayed in a deluxe King room with balcony, fireplace and whirlpool tub. The room was amazing. The staff was friendly and there were no problems at all. The entire hotel was extremely clean and welcoming. I will definately stay there again.
The rooms were the highlight. I think they were newly redone and they smelled and looked great. The exterior of the hotel is also attractive.
This is very basic in terms of services but well worth the money in a pricey city. Would stay here again.
Eagle Inn is fantastic
Fantastic B&B. Great location for the money. Big clean rooms. Helpful staff, knew a lot about the strip and recommended restaurants and shopping.
Definitely will be back when visiting Santa Barabara again.
Good walking distance to shopping and beach.
My partner and I stayed at the Eagle Inn recently, and we loved every minute of it! Callie at the front desk was so helpful and fun to talk to. For an extremely reasonable rate, we had the best room in the place, renovated the previous month, with a king bed, living area with fireplace and jacuzzi tub, as well as a balcony overlooking the street with views toward the beach (which is only 2 blocks away).
I'd stay here again in a minute!!!
Nicest place on my Vacation
I felt that I must recommend the Eagle Inn because we just loved it. My wife & I were visiting California for the first time and, with no advance reservations, we just hoped to find a room wherever we happened to find ourselves at the end of a day's driving. We arrived in Santa Barbara and found this charming hotel just off the main beachfront road. Our room was very nicely furnished, it all looked so new, and what we particularly liked was the large Jacuzzi tub in the room. We had not seen a hotel room like this before, it was the best. The staff were really friendly and offered to help us secure a reservation at a very nice nearby restaurant. We enjoyed our stay so much that we stayed two more nights than we originally intended.
Very Honorable Management
I posted the previous negetive review of our experience at the Eagle Inn due to our calling card being used by the cleaning crew. I am happy to report that the Manager, Roy, has done a thorough investigation and has handled the situation better than would be expected. The cost of our calling card was refunded by the inn. It was a negative experience and one in which we hold partial responsibility, we shouldn't have left the calling card out for room service to see. The management did go out of there way to correct the problem and we couldn't ask for anything more from them. With all that said, our stay at the Eagle Inn was wonderful.
Great Little Hotel
I found this small, quaint hotel/inn after spending my first night in Santa Barbara at an unacceptable lodging two blocks away. The Eagle Inn is surrounded by beautiful, blooming shrubbery, and well kept grounds, all very representative of the area's Spanish history and charm. Muraled walls in the foyer's entrance make for a pleasant welcome for guests on arrival. Santa Barbara was very hot during my stay, although there was no air conditioning, the room had a ceiling fan which made for comfortable sleeping at night. The linens were clean and fresh, although the shower curtain was not so clean. A continental breakfast is served each morning in a small dining area. Down side: (1) The Inn did not serve coffee with the continental breakfast. Guess they figure that guests will brew their own coffee, since a coffee pot w/ coffee is in each room. (However, the coffee pot in my room had mold where the water is poured and I did not use it.) (2) Night desk attendant was slightly rude and condescending.This is an excellent hotel, worth the $130 a night versus $225 I paid for a similar nearby lodging which was unacceptable. (I was sorry to read the guest's review who experienced the calling card problem. Never leave credit/phone calling cards out in any hotel. Hotel does have safe in closet!) This little inn is tucked away on a quiet, tree lined street and only a short stroll to the beach. The tour trolley also stops a few steps from the front door and runs about every two hours.
Quaint Spanish Inn
This quaint 100 year old inn, identified as the former Harbormaster's Residence, was referred to us by the visitor centre. We were extremely impressed by the ambience of the inn and its rooms. I would have no hesitation in recommending this inn. The staff were very friendly. The inn is located two blocks from the waterfront, harbour and pier. It was reasonably priced for this time of the year (early August).
Great Little B&B
My wife and I just spent a couple of days there, and even though they were in mid-remodeling, the place was excellent!!!! Friendly people, very relaxing, highly recommend the honeymoon suite. definitely would visit it again.
Excellent Place to Stay
I discovered this place a couple years ago on my annual jaunt to SB. It's a lovely hotel. Sort of reminds me of a bed and breakfast. It's clean and within walking distance to everything from downtown SB to Stearns Wharf. The rates are reasonable too considering it's so close to the beach and all. Though they almost screwed up my reservations (they cancelled my reservations by mistake) I would highly recommend this hotel.
Be sure to book early especially if you're heading to SB on holidays because this place will sell out.

... the recommendation for the Daily Grind which is just out the back. For everyone who knows me, you know that coffee (good coffee) is a very important part of my morning! I was led to believe that getting good coffee in America was going to be an almost impossible task, but I have been pleasantly surprised. There is good coffee and even great coffee here if you are patient and look for it. This morning is a good-coffee morning :D
We mosey on ...
... had lunch sat in the courthouse gardens which was so good, as it was a very warm day so nice to chill in the sun. After, we had lunch we had a look around the town looking in all the nice little shops.
So after a pretty busy morning and afternoon we headed down to the beach! The beach was very nice it was in a little bay and was not too busy at all. We spent a few hours here before heading back for dinner and going out for a drink. We ...
... the price.
Tomorrow morning, we are off on our travels again but we will definitely come back to Santa Barbara. We loved the slower pace of life the friendliness of everyone we met, the fabulous food and the beautiful buildings. The beach is lovely too, but there are some very special small coves just out of the centre that would be perfect for a day at the beach.
The "Big Sur" here we come.................we are getting closer!!!!
... the tide come in and out. There are several shops along the wharf as well, and the Santa Barbara Natural History Museum, but since we had the dogs we didn't want to leave them in the car that long.
After enjoying the wharf, we went back to the hotel to drop off the car, and took the dogs on their leashes for a walk along the beach across the street from the hotel. Dogs aren't allowed on the sand, so we stuck to the ...
Today we headed to the Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, CA. We were joined by my brother, Mike, and his nephew, Christian, who is 18 and attending his first year at Cal Poly. It was another beautiful day and the 1 1/2 hour drive up was pleasant. I had been to the library a few years before and found it quite interesting, so I wanted Spencer to have the opportunity to see it as well ...
