Stayed at Hotel Milo for a week with my family. This was our second stay at the property, we had to return after the first one. The location is just spectacular, right on the beach. The pool areas are lovely and we had a fantastic stay. With the electric shuttle passing right in front of the hotel it is easy... More

It's right on the beach and it has a home feel. Didn't try the pool but it looked really nice. I tried their breakfast but it wasn't that impressive. I recommend samba down the street for breakfast or lunch. It was a great stay at milo, I'd def do it again.

Overall, the Hotel Milo in Santa Barbara is a very nice hotel, located right across the beach and Wharf area. Their breakfast was very nice, the staff very nice and helpful. The rooms were adequate and quaint. We enjoyed the complimentary 2 hour bike ride provided by the Hotel and enjoyed riding along the beach and surrounding areas. Our stay... More

We stayed here for two nights in june, and we loved it. Comfortable gardens and pool area. The room was clean and nicely decorated. You can also rent bikes for free, which we loved. The location could not be better. Right at the beach. The only drawback was the parking, $19 for a day, and the resort fee. However, well... More

I’ve stayed at the Hotel Milo three times, so it’s a definite place to revisit. The beach and marina are across the street. You can spend as much time playing in the sand and sea as you want, and walk back to your room as often as you want. The hotel has beach cruisers that you can borrow. You can... More

We loved our stay at Hotel Milo. It exceeded all our expectations and the pictures online don't do it justice. Great decor in the room with very nice amenities. Beautiful grounds and location is amazing related to Santa Barbara hot spots like the beach, Funk Zone, Stearns Wharf, etc. With the hotel bikes no driving was required. Would do it... More
