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.

... Fortunately we managed to get some pictures looking back on the bridge, so not a total loss! Haha. Next stop was Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park. We decided to stop here because it's a slightly smaller version of the Pfeiffer Big Sur state park. McWay falls is definitely the big attraction here though. It plunges 80ft from the cliffs into the Pacific. Perfect spot for some perfect pictures. From here we decided To hit the gas and head straight down to Morro Bay for a spot of ...
... the bay, the marina and the hills back over Santa Barbara. We could have stayed much longer but went back to the bikes, cycled down the pier and joined the kids in the hotel. We didn't stay long and managed to convince Becky to cycle too, as Rachael and I wanted to go back to the pier restaurant to eat. So we went and go got two more bikes from reception and the four of us headed on out onto Castillo St then over West Cabrillo Blvd and onto the cycle path on ...
... preparations. Paula manned the galley and whipped up some French toast while Berkeley made coffee and started getting us caught up with the kids, family, life on the beach and more.
After breakfast we loaded up and took a long board and a SUP (Stand Up Paddle Board) the short block out to the beach. There were a couple of SUPs already on the beach so between us there was plenty to try out. By the afternoon Izze had stood ...
... to be a different Los Alamos! But what a coup. This town of one main street was a trip back to the 1860s. We parked and wandered into the Union Hotel, a typical cowboy haunt with genuine saloon and all preserved and still operating as an hotel. We ordered 2 fingers of red eye (wine really) and sat back and soaked up the genuine Wild West atmosphere. We got talking to the barmaid and she arranged for us to have a tour of ...

Sarah* and I decided we were both hungry so we set off downtown in search of a cheap restaurant (harder task than we thought it would be!). Santa Barbara is super quaint! With all the red tiled Mediterranean-styled hotels, houses, and shops, you don’t really feel like you’re in California. There are so many trees and bushes just dripping with flowers and beautifully landscaped around the palm tree-lined city. We searched through ...
