    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.

    Nice Choice


    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.

    Great Place!


    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.

    ... was made we should follow the inland route (101) just because of time constraints, and although there were no views of the sea for most of the way, the views of horticulture were incredible. Again, valleys filled with rich soil, a diverse range of crops from cauliflowers to berries in covered rows, lots of irrigation equipment and groups of workers in the sun, doing everything from hoeing to picking. Did we mention that as we left the coast, the temperature quickly ...

    Day 16: California 1/ Santa Barbara/ Los Angeles

    A travel blog entry by aorseno on Jul 17, 2015

    Today was a full day of driving. We left San Francisco bright and early and made our way to Highway 1. Technically, you can take the 1 all the way down the coast, but that takes like 12 hours or something ridiculous. So I did some research and found the section of it that is a "must see." So, after mapping it out, we ended up driving on it for a total of 4 hours before we shot back out to the ...

    We relaxed on the beach for a good couple of hours and I started to do my research on the Caribbean for our upcoming cruise. The beautiful golden sand beach was raked and cleaned to perfection and we were hoping this was a glimpse of all LA beaches to come. There were a couple of pelicans ...

We set off, GPS on, with the 'Dad's driving in Sydney' rules enacted. That meant no radio, no loud noises and don't ask Dad questions kids, he's concentrating. After seeing 4 Denny's in 3 miles we stopped briefly somewhere in or near Van Nuys for Subway for brunch for Evan and I and some cookies for the ...

    ... up the Pacific Highway for a couple of days in The American Riviera, Santa Barbara. After we arrived we went for a long walk along the East Beach promenade and the Wharf at the harbour. We had Fish and Chips at the Wharf, which is similar to Blackpool Pier! (NOT). This is definitely somewhere I could live. Absolutely beautiful. Some more adventures in Santa Barbara tomorrow, maybe a little wine tasting on the cards, and possibly a few beers as I don't plan on ...
