Great stay I came up here to Santa Barbara with my wife and three little girls and had a great time. Two of the girls are older and loved the bikes and I have to say the Valet guys. But the wine tasting on Friday and all of the great staff made this family vacation a special one. I really... More

My friends and I decided to take an impromptu trip to SB and came across this gem of a hotel. We absolutely loved our room. What better way to wake up than to the sound of the ocean. Housekeeping was great, very clean and friendly ladies. My party loved the bistro breakfast and the coffee in the lobby was a... More

This hotel was easy to access and accommodating. Great location. Friday night wine tasting was really a nice touch. Came from the east coast, so this was a treat for us. Used the bicycles for a ride along they waterfront. Nice way to spend the morning. An easy walk to restaurants for dinner.

We stayed at Hotel Milo during our road trip from San Francisco to LA. The service was great from the very beginning. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Jacky helped us with her perfect Spanish and great pieces of advice about restaurants and things to do in Santa Barbara. I would definitely recommend this place. Thanks Jacky!

Lovely place and a great welcome. Rooms were well appointed and luckily we had good location - just off the main road and close to breakfast room. Only small downside was that the valet charges were not clarified properly and therefore it created a bit of confusion at check-out. However the check-out manager was were understanding. Breakfast was adequate but... More

The newly refreshed guestrooms reflect the relaxed elegance and understated sophistication distinct to Southern California style.
