Close to the waterfront, close . to the Amtrak station, downtown a 5 minute walk, shuttlebus nearby, bike rental nearby. The hotel lies on a quite street, but close to the boulevard and pier. Good value for money!

Great location, close to beach and walking distance to restaurants. Complimentary breakfast was just ok. Coffee was weak as was the "orange juice". No elevator to the second floor where we stayed. A little tough on seniors with luggage.

We found this hotel cozy and centrally located to beach, State St. and the (embarrassingly monikered) Funk Zone. There seems to be a range of room vibes -- from mildly charming to super romantic. Loved the Spanish influence throughout.

We picked the Eagle Inn based on reviews and proximity to train depot, beach, wharf, State Street, Little did we know how great of a destination it is all by itself. We had two rooms for our party: a nice couples room with a King bed and the Anacapa Casita. Both were lovely. We relaxed that evening after dinner by...

I just got back from a girl's weekend in Santa Barbara and staying at the Eagle Inn was the highlight of our trip! We stayed in the Anacapa Casita which was tucked away behind the main building of the hotel. Our stay was incredibly relaxing and comfortable, and the amenities in the room were great. We definitely took advantage of...

I enjoyed the stay overall and would recommend it to friends and family. Probably better for a leisure weekend than a business trip with the casual breakfast service. Food was good. Room comfy and staff very pleasurable.

Our room was quite big, it even had a little entry way. It was decorated nicely and the bathroom was spacious. Short walk to the beach, a little farther and you'll get to the pier. Downtown is a long walk but manageable nevertheless. Breakfast was just okay but overall a nice experience.

Thanks for writing a review of your stay. I'm glad you enjoyed the room and found the hotel to be close to all the attractions Santa Barbara has to offer like the beach and the waterfront area. We're also close to the Funk Zone - I hope you had a chance to visit there too!

Bait and switch! Annual trip with my Best Friend and we were excited to go wine tasting and stay in Santa Barbara. The hotel was a recommendation and looked very cute on the website. When you book your room online it shows you a photo of the room and it says "book now" for that particular room. I booked my...

I am sorry that you were not happy with the room that you booked. And I apologize that we were unable to upgrade you to anything different as we were sold out. Our front desk staff do all they can to help, and as I understand it, you were verbally abusive and extremely loud and caused quite a scene. Please...

Close to beach, piers, wonderful walking/biking paths. Probably best to stay upstairs so you don't hear all the walking around and perhaps less door slamming. The standard rooms are pretty small with little counter space in the bathroom. Good breakfast.

I'm happy to hear you enjoyed the breakfast and our location - so close to so many of the attractions here. I appreciate the tip you gave about upstairs rooms - yes it can be more quiet! Hopefully we'll get to see you again soon.
