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.

Renton, WA2 contributions
Great location but that is all that is good at this hotel. I could hear everything my neighbors said because of the paper thin walls. The valet was very aggressive, trying to get my keys. Even though i refused his services, I was still charged the $30. (The website says "Valet service available", not required!) Their website says they charge $25 per pet for the duration of the stay, but they tried to charge me $35/per day when I got there. None of the staff seemed to know very much about the hotel either. The front desk guy said the room didn't have a fridge but it did. Had he never been in the rooms? Just weird.

Dear Leslie, I am sorry that we were not what you expected. We do not offer self-parking, and would charge for use of the parking space regardless of valet or self parking as is customary for most properties that have limited street parking. Our website states what we offer, not what we do not offer. And the pet fee is $35 per night as described on our website, except that you booked our Pet & Play by the Beach Package that states "Bring up to two pets for only $25 per stay (a savings of $10)." Sorry if those were not clear to you. Also our rooms do not have refrigerators; we have beverage coolers. Again, sorry that we were not what you were expecting.

What a charming hotel. Great amenities and the staff could not have been more friendly and experienced. My first trip to Santa Barbara was truly memorable because of the Hotel Milo. The views of the water were incredible. Jasmine, Marko, and the manager, Robert were especially friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful!

January is a great month to visit Santa Barbara. We like the location of the Hotel Milo and have stayed there previously. We enjoy the complimentary bicycles. Jasmin is friendly and professional, a real asset to the front desk staff. Thank you!

You can hear everything in the rooms and it was ok a few nights but a few nights I had very noisy neighbors and called the front desk. The front desk didn’t do anything about it. The beds are also not the greatest and the pillows were terrible.

So sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. As a beachfront property in Santa Barbara, we cannot guarantee that other guests won't be celebrating something; but I can assure you that we take complaints to heart in real time and ask others to be more considerate of a guest who asks us to handle a noise complaint during late night hours.
