  • 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.

Map of The Eagle Inn

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.
