The Eagle Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls
Santa Barbara, California, United States

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Convenient location, with the harbor and numerous restaurants within walking distance
  • All rooms have DVD players and free Internet access
  • Rooms are clean and tidy
  • Many rooms have whirlpool tubs, private balconies, kitchenettes, and/or fireplaces
  • Nice freebies such as breakfast and bicycle rentals
  • Bright, airy breakfast room

Cons

  • A few rooms have tube TVs
  • No on-site gym (guests can use the Athletic Club, a 10-minute walk from the hotel, for a steep daily fee)
  • Room decor is a bit bland
  • A bit of a trek to shops and restaurants on State Street

Bottom Line

The 15-room Eagle Inn is a quaint but basic B&B in Santa Barbara, near the water but a bit of the trek from restaurants and shops on State Street. Like many B&Bs, each of the rooms is a bit different, and there are very few on-site amenities. However, the rooms feel cozy and tidy, and many are updated with extras such as flat-screen TVs, Jacuzzi tubs, private balconies, kitchenettes, and fireplaces. The Eagle Inn is a good deal -- offering free Internet, free breakfast, and free bicycle rentals -- and a popular romantic getaway spot. All in all, it's a solid value pick in pricey Santa Barbara, though it's worth comparing rates with Hotel Santa Barbara and Hotel Oceana.

Santa Barbara is an affluent community in Santa Barbara County, home to five colleges and universities, as well as a large yachting population. Swaddled between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains, this charming town is known for its Spanish-inspired architecture, surfing, and the nightlife that dots State Street.

The Eagle Inn rests in a peaceful residential area only a few minutes' walk from West Beach. Down West Cabrillo Boulevard, you'll find local shopping and restaurants, as well as Stearn's Wharf, which juts out into the harbor.

  • 2-minute walk to Condor Express whale watching and Santa Barbara Harbor
  • 3-minute walk to Ambassador Park
  • 10-minute walk to Skaters Point skate park
