Excellent location

Near the beach at center of town, Hotel Milos was a good choice. Resort fee includes bike rental and a large, delicious breakfast. Staff inattentive at times.

Quick Family Get Away

We honestly can't say enough glowing things about Hotel Milo and the tremendous staff that operates the hotel. After a pretty long drive down the coast, we arrived at the hotel and were met by such warm and helpful front desk staff. After getting to our room, we realized that it wasn't quite big enough for us with the kid's pack n plays and the staff was so incredibly accommodating in locating another room for us and offering to help with our bags. That evening the room got a little cold (it was a frigid night outside) and the heater wasn't quite doing the job so maintenance delivered a portable heater to our door and fully set it up for us. As a complete "above and beyond" step, the housekeeping staff hand washed my daughter's car seat after she had gotten car sick on the drive into Santa Barbara, presenting us with a completely clean seat upon check out. We were floored every step of the way. The location is incredible, the hotel is clean and full of character, the front desk has great recommendations for food, and they all truly seem to care about the service they provide. We are 100 coming back again.

ice is nice

The hotel was decent in a great location. It was annoying to have to call the front desk for ice. The refrigerator in the room was packed with overpriced item to purchase. There was very little room to store our own purchases. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Family road trip

The location was great we could walk and bike around. We were hoping for a room with a view for the price and The second bed was little small for my kids.

anniversary stay

Our stay was great. Received a complimentary bottle of wine and card in our room. Loved it. The only complaint is the condition of the lobby. Two couches faded and very old. One of the chairs did not have a cushion to sit on. If I had not asked to see a room (which was very nice) I would have gone else where.

Good location

Fantastic location, hotel is right by the beach. Hotel is pricey for the amenities they provide.. Parking fee of 18$ is steep. Otherwise, we had good fun in Santa Barbara

Friendly staff, great location, excellent amenities

We couldn't have asked for more at this beach front hotel. Staff was friendly. Pools and hot tub were great. Breakfast was filled with options. The bike rentals were easy and perfectly located to take advantage of Santa Barbara's bike path along the water.

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.
