Weekend Getaway

The hotel was fine, and nice and right on the beach which was what I wanted, but they put us in a lower level room not near the beach (May have been the least expensive rate) and the people above us sounded like they were moving furniture around all weekend. Which they were not- point being one could hear everything including the toilet flushing. But I did not hear voices. They also tacked on an additional unavoidable charge per night for the internet and continental breakfast, and charged a high nightly charge for parking. Which increased the nightly rate by about $30.00 per night. The decor of the rooms is cute and updated but the bathroom could use a remodel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A+ location. I'd stay there again but I'd request a room on the upper level.

Hotel was great and staff was very nice. We loved that the hotel had bikes for us to ride instead of going down the street and getting them. The comp breakfast was good too.

Just OK

The staff are very nice, the complimentary breakfast was great, location fabulous, and the bike rental fun. On the other hand, the rooms do not have A/C and we were rudely awakend by very very inconciderate hotel guests at 1:45 am which continued long after the hotel staff spoke to them on our behalf. This was unacceptable. The pools are average and for the price we payed, it was not worth it. I'm sorry to say.

Great Stay

I would stay at Milo again. I wish the room was more private and the hallway wasn't in front of the window like it's usually in motels. Great location and they have bicycles.

Perfect Spot in Santa Barbara

Hotel Milo is right on the water next to the famous Stearns Wharf and has fantastic views of the ocean and mountains. It's quiet, peaceful, and yet you're right in the center of all there is to see and do locally.

Ordinary in a fantastic location

Santa Barbara in August must be the most overpriced market in the US. Great location. Rooms and facilities are decidedly ordinary.

Hotel on the Beach

The location of the Hotel Milo is great -- right on the water but I had a pricey room off the pool with a view of a pool fence. The curtains are hard to pull and people can see right into your room. If you pool the curtains, very little air can come into the room. It was uncomfortable warm even with a ceiling fan. The rooms are small and dark if you're not overlooking the water. The bed wasn't very comfortable -- a bit lumpy and soft. Liked that there was L'Occitane stuff in the shower. The breakfast room was incredibly overcrowded. They need more space and tables. Staff was nice but kept making mistakes. They charge too much for overnight parking and a facilities charge is ridiculous -- why else do you stay there except for facilities like the pool. It's a great location and is fine but nowhere near what it should or could be.

Great place to stay in Santa Barbara

We were looking for something comfortable and low-key, and this place was great. It's location can't be beat - right across the street from the beach and walking distance to many restaurants. The best part really is that there are beach cruisers available for free, we went out twice and rode along the shoreline and it was fantastic. The room was perfectly fine and clean. The pool area wasn't too exciting but they serve drinks and you can lounge and go in the hot tub.
