Our bridal suite with fireplace and private veranda is the perfect honeymoon retreat, while executive and family rooms are likewise tailored to your comfort.

Santa Barbara Getaway

4.2 on April 08, 2014

Felt like home, excellent staff.


Great Anniversary Weekend

4.4 on March 07, 2014

My wife and I spent two nights in the San Clemente Casita the first weekend in March. The accommodations were very nice and the whirlpool tube in the bedroom was a cool and interesting feature. All the staff were very helpful. Despite the rain, our breakfast was delivered to our casita each morning. You can't beat the location of the Eagle Inn, easy walking distance of the Harbor, Wharf and Downtown Santa Barbara. Hope to stay there again.


Romantic Gem in Santa Barbara

5 on February 14, 2014

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon in January and couldn't have been more pleased. Every detail was so thoughtful. They upgraded us to the nicest casita where we were met with chocolates, rose petals, and a card congratulating us on our celebration. Breakfasts were delicious, the staff was so helpful, free bikes were available to borrow for the day, fresh cookies, coffee, tea, and movies available at the front desk. We will definitely be back to celebrate an anniversary or two. Excellent value and great experience. Thank you Eagle inn!


Excellent location!

4.4 on October 30, 2013

We have stayed at the Eagle Inn on many occasions over the last few years. The location is excellent, in a lovely neighborhood of old Santa Barbara residences and Inns, with trees and gardens to admire along with the beautiful architecture. The Eagle Inn is just a block or so from the beach and an easy walk to the main wharf in town. It is also a close walk to State Street for shopping and restaurants. And what has worked very well for me is that it is close to the Amtrak station because sometimes I come down to Santa Barbara by train and I can easily pull my suitcase a few blocks over to the Inn. I have stayed in many of the rooms and with one exception they have all been lovely, comfortable, and roomy. Some have gas fireplaces and big tubs/Jacuzzi, and microwaves and refrigerators. Most have double showers. Beds are luxurious. Service from the friendly staff has always been excellent. Breakfast in the nice breakfast room is tasty, usually some kind of eggs or choice of cereal with fruit and juice. Cookies and tea/coffee are provided in the main lobby. I do need to say, that on this last trip I did not enjoy my room as much as on all my previous stays. It was a smaller room but that was not the problem. At night I heard noises, clanks, clicks, and pops and other such noises throughout the night, sometimes waking me up. I am guessing that I was located in room 211 near the Inn's heating system or plumbing system or something. I almost asked to change rooms for my second night, which I am sure they would have done for me because their customer service is great, but it was my own laziness, not wanting to pack up my things. So if you want a lovely stay in a fabulous location, good service and comfortable rooms, stay at the Eagle Inn, just avoid room 211!! I will go back again myself.


Heaven on Earth!

Excellent accommodations and service. Every attention to detail. We really enjoyed our honeymoon stay here and plan to come back to celebrate our anniversaries!!


Mid-week Getaway

4.8 on September 18, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was excellent. We were close enough to State Street and the wharf. The art museum, shopping and restaurants occupied our day, followed by a walk and aquarium visit on the wharf, although bicycles are available from the hotel. Breakfast at our hotel was exceptionally delicious, and good coffee was available in the morning and afternoon with yummy homemade chocolate chip cookies. Upon arriving home, unpacking and sleeping, my husband discovered that he left his pillow. We called the staff and they sent it back right away. Sweet dreams for us. We are planning a return visit to our new favorite hotel.


Great Stay!

4.6 on August 31, 2013

We had a great time in Santa Barbara at the Eagle Inn. I have no idea why the hotel is listed as 2.5 stars on the travel websites. It was certainly of a higher caliber in my opinion. I didn't see any of the other room options, but I highly recommend the Santa Barbara casita. It feels like your own little cottage. We loved having breakfast and afternoon wine on our private patio. We took the bikes out one day and it was definitely a highlight of our trip. Renting bikes on the beach was about $30 for a half day so having them for free was a nice bonus! The hotel was immaculate and everyone was really helpful. We found the location to be great because we wanted close to the beach. The town is a bit spread out so if you want to be near all the restaurants on upper State Street, it's a bit of a hike. We took a taxi back from dinner one night and it was $9 just to give you an idea. However, if you choose a hotel in that area, you'll be much further away from the beach so it just depends what you're interested in. We were so sad to leave and look forward to our next visit!


Romantic get-away or a day at the beach

4.0 on August 22, 2013

Easy Walk to beach, dining, pier, or shopping. Best room is worth the extra $ for a fireplace, 2 person whirlpool tub and balcony. Food was good but not a wide variety. People are friendly and helpful. Their spa recommendation was excellent.


One of a Kind

5 on June 13, 2013

We stayed at the Santa Rosa cottage for our honeymoon and loved it so much we stayed there again for our 1 year anniversary. The staff is awesome and it is a great deal for your money. You get breakfast delivered to your door - and you get to pick out what you want! We had the romance package - awesome! And we had the picnic package - even more awesome! Even their bedsheets are softer than the ones at home. You get to wear super soft terry cloth robes too. We love this place and will stay here every chance we get.


What a Breakfast!

4.4 on May 27, 2013

The breakfasts at this Inn are fantastic! We stayed 4 nights and each day there was something new and tasty. The staff are very courteous and the location was great. We really enjoyed our stay.

When I'm not playing with my two children I really enjoy SCUBA diving, surfing, and mountain biking - not all at the same time though!
