great service
Hotel Milo was a wonderful stay for the weekend. My husband and I were doing our quarterly marriage retreat and loved almost everything about our stay. We loved the heaters in the bathrooms, the extra locks on the doors (so we felt extra secure), the set up of the vanity area in our suite, the jacuzzi, and the fact they had fridges. Service was great and if we ever want to splurge again on a stay, we will definitely come back. If I could change one thing, I wish they had parking included, since the nightly rate is already higher than many comparable hotels in the area, and that the included some form on breakfast. I stay in Santa Barbara for work about 10 times a year and have stayed at many of the boutique hotels in the area. This one is a bit pricier but it was nice for what we needed it for.

Hotel Milo 2023
The location of this property can’t be beat. Located right on the shore and walking distance to many restaurants and beachfront. Nice amenities: pool, spa and fire pits to sit and enjoy a glass of wine at night. Room was nice, older property, but with nice modern amenities in the room. Only issue, being on the ground floor next to the pool, noise of the spa motor hummed through the wall. We were able to cut this noise, but had to go out and completely shut off the spa nightly. Also, motor for this part of the hotel was directly outside next to the room door. Recommend not staying so close to the pool. Final issue is the forced valet parking, $30 per day! No option for self parking available. Overall nice stay. We would stay here again.

Great place on the beach and near restaurants
Everything was clean. We had a great stay. The hotel is very conveniently located near the Funk Zone so lots of restaurants near there and on State Street. Pool and jacuzzi were nice. Free use of bikes to ride along the bike path near the beach or in town. Highly recommend.
