Great harbor location

Clean, well appointed room adjacent to the harbor. GREAT LOCATION. Seems like a fixed up beach hotel, and that's good. Both my wife and I agreed that the bed was uncomfortable. The room we had was big enough and comfortable enough, but there was no space in the bathroom to place toiletries.

Santa Barbara ocean View

This is an excellent hotel. You can hear your neighbors, but this is an older building. For all the amazing things this hotel has to offer it is worth it! Bikes, breakfast, warm pools, incredible service! If you don't mind a little bit of neighbor noise, this is the place for you!!

Great hotel...but had to pay for parking

Hotel Milo is wonderfully located, has GREAT amenities (bikes to rent, 2 pools, beach towels, etc) but I wasn't expecting to pay for parking. While I know paying for parking is common practice in this area of Santa Barbara, I've stayed at a hotel right down the street and we didn't have to pay, so I wasn't expecting it. Other than that we enjoyed our time at the hotel. Very nice and clean.

Mike

Was given a first floor room at check in and was told there were no second floor rooms available. Noise from room above kept me up all night. Later I found out a friend who checked in after us got a second floor room. Okay make do. Had a good breakfast. I wish when we checked -in, clerk would have reminded me about the prepaid rental bicycles. Also parking was never explained when we checked-in. This is a dated hotel/motel good location, not worth the price we paid..

Free parking as well as meter parking at wharf. Stay in the city (City Hall tour it's worth it) and visit the wharf.

Ride the bikes north about 3 miles and park them at the neighborhood beach access at Cooper street and walk north on Hendrey's beach to the Boathouse Restaurant for lunch. It's where the locals hang-out and gorgeous find.
