I travel often. The hotel definitely has a charm. The check-in was pleasant, room is simple but just right. USB chargers bedside, what a novelty. The location is great. But the staff just makes this place phenomenal. It's not about "no". It's about how can "I make this special for you." Especially Silvani, Destiny and Alex. Just a very refreshing...

Had an absolute great time here at Hotel Milo! My boyfriend and I only stayed for a few nights so we decided not to use their valet service..considering it was $30 per night. On another note, the property speaks for itself. Gorgeous views. Great customer service all around. Complimentary wine tasting in the lobby. Breakfast was quite delicious. Gets a...

Staying here with my father as a post-graduation gift was absolutely AMAZING. We were immediately blown away by the beauty and charm of the Hotel Milo. The beachfront patios and courtyard promotes a social aspect to your stay that is seldom found in any hotels nowadays. There is complimentary wine each evening and you can sit around fire pits on...

Hotel Milo is a little gem right on the ocean next to Stearn's Wharf. We had a nice oceanfront room with a lovely view. The rooms aren't fancy but they are certainly nice, clean and adequate. They offer a very nice breakfast as well as wine in the afternoons. We also enjoyed the bikes which we used to ride to...

I have stayed here multiple times and love it! The location is perfect right on the beach and near great restaurants, there is a 24/7 gym, and the staff is very welcoming, especially Silvani, who upgraded my stay this week since it was my birthday month :) I definitely recommend this hotel!

I had an excellent mini-vacation at Hotel Milo. The room was so spacious, comfortable and with a great ocean view and dog friendly. The staff were all incredibly gracious, kind and helpful---Silvani was exceptional, helping my with every little thing I needed and spoiling my little 4 legged companion. She provided excellent options with discounts of places to eat in...

My Wife and I stayed two nights at Hotel Milo and had a great experience. You can't beat the location with the ocean right across the street and state st. (downtown area) only a couple blocks away. The gentlemen at the valet service stuck out to my wife and I because they were beyond professional. Kelly did a superb job...

My husband, daughter and I really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Milo. The lobby offered free wine tasting at 4 pm. The rooms are nice and clean. The hotel is right across the street from the beach. Beautiful grounds with fire pits to sit around at night. Valet parking is available at $30 which we recommend because parking is hard...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With magnificent views, traditional Spanish-style architecture, and a beautiful courtyard with outdoor pools and gardens, Hotel Milo Santa Barbara truly reflects Santa Barbara's rich colonial history and affords guests access to the best of Southern California's surf and sun. Situated in West Beach, guests are within a stone's throw of the ocean and all that Santa Barbara has to offer in this 122-room oceanfront hotel. The newly refreshed guestrooms reflect the relaxed elegance and understated sophistication distinct to Southern California style. A signature blue and white palette reflects the brilliance of the ocean and sky, while subtly referencing the Mediterranean. The overall vibe of the rooms is chic seaside. Guests are invited to celebrate Santa Barbara and the great outdoors with poolside ping pong and bocce ball, as well as beach cruiser bicycles for 2-hour loan.
