I booked 13 rooms with Hotel Milo for an office retreat and they provided excellent service the entire trip. The rooms are beautiful, clean, and comfortable. There are plenty of areas to sit outside and bask in the sun, restaurants are close, and a great rate for being right across the street from the ocean/wharf. Their staff is professional and... More

We stayed during move in weekend at UCSB. A little pricey but I think because everything was sold out. The place was super cute and very boutique. Close to the pier and harbor, everything within walking distance

The location of this hotel is ideal. Right across from the beach, close to downtown, and the marina. This is our third stay at the hotel. The rooms are newly designed, comfortable, and clean. The staff was professional and helpful as usual. We will stay there again.

After a long drive from San Francisco we were greeted by a very friendly assistant general manager garret who couldn't do enough for you and gave us a wealth of local knowledge throughout our stay! Nothing was... More

We booked Hotel Milo through Expedia. When we arrived we were allowed to check in early. They waived our Resort fee of $15 which was quite nice. It is a $30 valet parking fee but considering there is no street or ample parking around, the convenience makes up for the valet charge. The hotel is literally across the street from... More

We paid 1000 dollars for 2 nights and this Kind Of setting for that Much money is not acceptable. The breakfast was... More

Beautiful hotel with stylish bedrooms and great facilities, including pools, bicycles, fitness centre, outdoor sitting area,... the location is great with the beach right opposite, the marina to the right and only 15mns by foot to the centre. The staff was super friendly and had great hospitality. WiFi was included.

Booked an "ocean view" room which is a signficant upcharge from the deluxe king rooms. Checked in at the hotel around 5:00 p.m. and we were assigned to a ground floor room near the stairs. It faced toward the ocean, but the ocean was not "viewable." Thinking that this room could not qualify as "ocean view", I called to the... More
