This stylish property is surrounded by lush gardens and palm trees, which provide some relief on a hot day. Dipping into the lagoon-shaped pool is another way to beat the heat.

Wonderful Trip to Santa Barbara

Would recommend Sun, Aug 30, 2015
My boyfriend and I took a trip from Chicago to California in June of this year. We started in Los Angeles and drove along the coastline. We spent three days in Santa Barbara and what a beautiful place to be. Although it wasn't as warm as we'd anticipated (lack of research for warmest weather on our part), it was sunny the entire time and the beaches were clean and gorgeous. Hotel Milo is RIGHT across the street. I read that online but figures that there would be a bit of a walk to reach it, that was not the case. Walk out of your door, cross the street and you'll run right into beautiful beaches. The rooms are very small and could use some updates but they were clean and the beds were comfortable. There were little sugar ants (or something similar) in the bathroom but if you've been to tropical/beach areas enough, you'll know that this is pretty common. I brushed them away and continued about my business! :) My favorite part of the trip was the fact the hotel had bikes for our use whenever we wanted them. I do believe there was a two hour time limit but the area is small. It's more than enough time to ride up the hill and catch a bird's eye view of the town. Highly recommend this! We also took the bikes into town for lunches... 10 minute bike ride and 20 minute walk. East to find and I felt more than safe walking around even at night. Great trip. I would go back in a heartbeat. Location cannot be beat.

This hotel is located in the perfect spot. Easy to walk to the tasting rooms around Anacapa. Right across the street from the beach. We love staying here.

Charming hotel, excellent location

Would recommend Wed, Jul 15, 2015
Very charming hotel in excellent location. Right across the street from a beach and the Wharf, a block away from 15 wine tasting rooms which is great because you don't have to worry about driving. Can walk into town and I recommend you do. They give you a free bicycle rental included in your stay and a nice breakfast. The only negatives for me are there is no air conditioning in the rooms ( they do have an overhead fan and a stand alone fan) and it was just too hot in the room even with the windows open, and the room was on the small side and so was the bathroom. I really did like this smallish hotel other than the no air conditioning on an 80 degree day with No wind which wasn't great.

Great Location but mediocre room

Would not recommend Wed, Jul 8, 2015
The staff was nice, the grounds were right by the beach and pier. Great area. However, for the price we paid for this hotel, no air conditioning. And the room were just okay. Dark and a bit depressing. The bathrooms were tiny. The bed and bedding was very comfy. But I just felt overall the hotel was way over priced for the room. Felt like a slightly updated motel 6 type room.

Family trip

Would recommend Thu, Apr 16, 2015
The hotel is in a great location. The rooms are simple (somewhat quirky) and overall property has nice character. The only negatives were the parking -- which was at times difficult and the limited staff working the front desk -- which resulted in rather long wait times to check in or simply speak with someone. Otherwise a solid choice.

Near the beach at center of town, Hotel Milos was a good choice. Resort fee includes bike rental and a large, delicious breakfast. Staff inattentive at times.

Quick Family Get Away

Would recommend Thu, Jan 8, 2015
We honestly can't say enough glowing things about Hotel Milo and the tremendous staff that operates the hotel. After a pretty long drive down the coast, we arrived at the hotel and were met by such warm and helpful front desk staff. After getting to our room, we realized that it wasn't quite big enough for us with the kid's pack n plays and the staff was so incredibly accommodating in locating another room for us and offering to help with our bags. That evening the room got a little cold (it was a frigid night outside) and the heater wasn't quite doing the job so maintenance delivered a portable heater to our door and fully set it up for us. As a complete "above and beyond" step, the housekeeping staff hand washed my daughter's car seat after she had gotten car sick on the drive into Santa Barbara, presenting us with a completely clean seat upon check out. We were floored every step of the way. The location is incredible, the hotel is clean and full of character, the front desk has great recommendations for food, and they all truly seem to care about the service they provide. We are 100 coming back again.
