My friend and I stayed at Hotel Milo Friday night through Monday morning and it was the ideal hotel for us - twenty-somethings looking for a nice getaway from the east coast. We loved the location and proximity to the water (versus some of the other hotels we had looked at staying). Wine tastings every night were a perfect welcome....

We had such an amazing stay with excellent service that we had to come back. When we had something to do in Santa Barbara 6 months later we couldn't wait to...

Hotel Milo really went above and beyond the usual hotel experience. From helpful, courteous staff to a very friendly manager we really enjoyed the entire experience. Breakfast was included with the room which really topped of the value. The food was great and not to mention the wine happy hour. Our overall experience was great and only made better by...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
