... harbour where we had lunch at the Breakwater Restaurant. Then we took the trolley bus up State Street to Downtown Santa Barbara. This is where you will find all the designer shops and upscale eateries as well as local bars etc. The street looks amazing with Palm trees down both sides. It has a great relaxed atmosphere, probably because it is narrow, which gives it a real homely feel. We looked in several shops had a drink in the The Old Kings Road ...
... along the pier with pedestrians on either side. At the end of the pier there was a car park surrounded by a large selection of restaurants. We decided to sit on a bench nearby, people and car watching. After enjoying these splendid delights we headed back to the car and drove to a famous landmark, The Living Old Mission community retreat house and church complex. We went on a fascinating tour around the complex ...
... when I arrived on my first day of work, I felt like I was welcomed in a big family. My boss and I went into most of the employee's offices and everybody introduced themselves. My two really kind supervisors even gathered together few members of the staff and prepared lunch for us. We had a tasty salad with dried cranberries, nuts, chicken and other things that I cannot remember (but I remember that it was good!). On the side, we had French sticks with amazing ...

We saw the Neptune pool, some of the gardens and I was way more impressed by the Roman pool, where you went to take the bus back down - the gold and blue tile work, the reflection of the tiled walls in the calm pool - it was lovely. We spent an hour on the tour, and about an hour wandering the grounds. Back down to the main ...

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.
