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.

We stayed for three nights for my wife’s 50th birthday and had a wonderful visit. Biggest thanks to Adrian whose efforts really made our stay perfect. We arrived fairly late on a foggy night after a very long drive and his happy personality, attention to detail and ability to help turned the night around. He helped us to our room, even though he works the front desk, because he could see we were exhausted. I think he could tell that I wasn’t really thrilled with the room we were given because we paid for ocean view and it had an obstructed view. Knowing it was a special celebration and we were there for three days, he found a room with a much better view, brought us a bottle of wine and told us about some local places. It was exactly what we needed and he really put forth an extra effort. We loved sitting out by the fire pits at night and he checked on us regularly to make sure things were going well. The room was very nice (a little dated but very clean and comfortable), the location couldn’t be better (walking distance to great restaurants, beaches, wharf and a little longer but manageable to zoo and downtown) and the staff was great. Valet staff was so chatty, fun and efficient. Thank you Hotel Milo for a wonderful stay!

Great location right on the beach within walking distance of the main beaches, restaurants and wharf. Wonderful secluded sitting locations outdoors with well manicured gardens and fires for cool evenings. Rooms are dated, but clean, with character. Due to Covid no food was available, but there is a restaurant adjacent. When we arrived for an eight-day mother-daughter getaway the hot tub wasn't functioning but Adrian made sure maintenance was aware and shortly it was up and running. Staff was friendly and Yasmin went above and beyond by making the end of our visit more enjoyable.

I was not happy the bill was supposed to be charged to the American Express account and it was charged to my personal account. When I checked out i received a bill for $167.00 and my personal account was charged $235.11. can you explain to me why this was done this way. Where the A/C and heater unit is by the window there was lots of water leaking when i got out of the bed i stepped in puddle of water. I used one of the towels to wipe the floor.

Sorry for the confusion. You originally booked your reservation using your VISA and asked to change your method of payment to the AMEX during your stay. The $235.11 was an authorization and not a charge. It was the full amount of your room and taxes plus a $50 incidentals hold that was authorized at check-in. This is a common practice for hotel stays. Had you not changed the method of payment during your stay, you would not have seen anything but the final charge on your card for room and tax, parking, pet fee and/or purchases in our market had they applied. I see that we also adjusted your bill for the inconvenience of the water. We are sorry that this made you choose to give us only two out of five stars and hope that you return again for a different experience.
