We stayed for 2 nights this past weekend. We got a room that luckily had an unobstructed view of the water. It also unfortunately had a small walkway to another room that could see right into our room if we left the blinds open. It wasn't a big deal because it was only another room that had access, but it...

We just spent one night, but I think we used every ammenity! Alexander and Victoria at the FD were very accommodating, and eager to help (from finding a room that was ready to giving us additional blankets). We enjoyed our wine on the ocean view rooftop balcony, after swimming in the pool. Our kids loved the breakfast, and we had...

Hotel Milo is located across the street from the beach and in the center of all of the action. The hotel is nice and the staff was great but our room was average. We really enjoyed the use of the bikes and there was a free breakfast. The hotel was very good but I'm not sure I would stay there...

I'm very picky but was blown away by this harbor shore hotel. Its obviously not a Vegas room but what everything expected from a beach side location, like no AC because of the near water but you still had curling fans and a cute authentic floor fan. The location was primo which a delicious breakfast. Not your standard continental breakfast....

This was my second visit, and just like the first, the room was beautiful and the staff were fantastic. I believe our room was a 'Santa Bárbara King' the bed was comfortable and the aesthetics of the room are on point👌🏽 Victoria at the front desk was absolutely accommodating to our special requests and did everything with a smile on...

Unfortunately we thought the website pictures made the place look a lot more high end than what it was. Yes it's a nice place in a good location but we found the rooms small and not in excellent condition, very dusty too (this is long term dust, not forgotten this time round). No a/c in the rooms so would be...

Front desk agent was great. ask for his name, very politely answered Angel. First impression of hotel was very indeed impressive.  Couldn't have been more sweet, giving me directions to tourist sites. I was attending along with a helpful map, ensuring parking in car park and facilitating an easy check in. If nothing else had gone right with hotel this...

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. Hotel Milo Santa Barbara is a member of The Independent Collection (IC), a growing collection of cultivated lifestyle hotels in gateway cities across the US. ... more   less
