EAGLE INN is really nice place; not perfect, but lovely. Great Staff and the location can't be beat. 2 blocks from Ocean and 3 blks from Amtrak station - I walked everywhere the 4 days I was there during New Year weekend... I will continue to use it as a 'getaway' from Atlanta. I walked the beach walk every morning.....

Friendly welcome. Room comfortable but rather small (cannot remember the room number) while our friends were lucky to get a larger room for the same price (better make sure you have room size confirmed when booking...). Breakfast was limited to 2 options but prepared with creativity and taste.

We stayed in a normal king room on the first floor. Pros: Easy walking distance to beach and State Street shops/restaurants. Really comfortable bed. Helpful front desk staff. Very clean. Cons: Breakfast was just OK each day; nothing special. Window faced the parking lot; no view (but it was still quiet)

At first all the basic rooms were booked, which were out of our price range so I called to ask if there was anything they could do. After checking with the manager they called me back and let me know that they were able to...

We spent one night at the Eagle Inn and I have only good things to say about this cozy, charming hotel. Our room was smaller but had all amenities needed for comfort in room. Super soft sheets and firm mattress, breakfast included. We had to leave early, breakfast started at 7:30a so we missed it. Location is great, just 5...

We spent two nights at the Eagle Inn, and give it high marks on every point! First of all, the architecture is totally charming, nostalgic Spanish Revival and oh so Santa Barbara. Parking is on site and ample, at least for the off season. Rooms are decorated with taste and are very welcoming-- but do take note: no elevator to...

Well I'm very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay so much. Thank you for writing this review. Also a very good tip about the elevator. Yes if stairs are difficult, please request a ground floor room. It sounds like you had a great time here. Thank you and I look forward to your next visit. Paul
