The location is convenient to the beach and Stearn’s Wharf. The continental breakfast was very nice. Valet parking is expensive at )30 per night and there is no self-park option. The bathroom was tiny but the bedroom size was average. Very nice staff.

The hotel was beautiful. There were nice gardens and fun out door seating to relax. They had fire places that they turned on in the evening. The location on the beach was spectacular. So many fun places were within wasking distance or you could borrow hotel bikes. The only downside was they charged a resort fee plus parking. It came out too $58 more a day and that is on top of paying for the hotel and other taxes and fees.

Like: Super convenient: in front of the beach and walking distance to State Street - downtown Santa Barbara The hotel has character and nice details nice swimming pool, Jacuzzi and Jim. Nice breakfast - included in the price. Wine testing in the afternoon. nice outside with fire places Minus - Our room was a bit noisy - tubes and pipes wish we were on the second floor to feel a bit more private. we were on a passage way and we needed to close the window at all times for privacy. wish there was a armchair in the room.

Great location. Comfortable room. Great wine tasting. A little disappointed about the hotel staff, everyone seemed to have little experience in the service industry. Expected higher standards to match hotel price,

Great location to the beach, restaurants, and State Street. Nice L’Occitane toiletries. Complimentary breakfast. Evening wine tasting included in gratuity fee. Nice reception and staff.

Great location, across the street from the beach and within walking distance to many restaurants

The best thing about this property is the location. It is fantastic--right across the street from the Pacific Ocean. However, the room was tiny. The fixtures were old. I am sure it was that it was lovely in 1978. No air condition. The plug to the fan kept falling out of the wall...

This was my second stay at the Hotel Milo. The rooms are clean and spacious but they now force you to use the valet parking which costs $30. This is on top of their $25/day “resort fee” which i guess they justify by the fact they have a pool and hot tub? They also have us a room whose only view was of the hallway wall. Pretty disappointing for what was a special occasion splurge.

Room was next to lobby. Loud woman on cell phone kept my wife awake. A/C not working in some rooms (ours). Was cool on Weds., Thursday was going to be hot, so we checked out a day early. Place was nice otherwise.

included bikes, really liked that. Hotel close to the beach, great breakfast.

Hotel Milo review We are a party of 4, and were staying at a different hotel with 2 rooms. We decided that we needed to move. So we worked with Orbitz Customer service to cancel that other hotel and book here. We were lucky enough to get 2 rooms reserved the same day. Our first in-person interaction here was with Jordan ('Stretch' as I nicknamed him) a college student with an infectious personality! Next, encounter was with Dana the manager/mentor who exhibited the helpful, caring, patient mood that explains why the rest of the encounters were as will follow! Next up, Leah, the ever-present quiet reassuring backup (can seemingly answer any question)! Finally, Niko another college student and our Valet upon arrival who went above and beyond - I had dropped my cellphone charging cables in the dark on the property. I searched several times without luck, and explained that my battery was about to die. Niko continued the search and found the cables, and then delivered them to our room! This experience REALLY turned our vacation into a GREAT MEMORY! A big Thank You to the crew here!
