Fabulous hotel
A fantastic stay at this hotel. Location was perfect looking out to the beach. Staff were very professional and friendly. Nothing was too much for them. A credit to the hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel to others.

Good all rounder!
Strange hotel, as it was a collection of smaller buildings. On the plus side the location was fabulous - right opposite the beach with stunning views of the harbour and pier. It was also very handy for state street. In addition there were two decent sized pools which didn't get overcrowded. I also liked the upmarket feel of the hotel. On the negative we specifically asked for a quiet room so they put us in the back block where the rubbish truck came about 6am and woke us up both mornings. Compared o other hotels the breakfast was adequate though I enjoyed the fresh fruit salad.

Great location
Great location. Free hotel bikes were a great way to explore the area. Breakfast was rushed and a bit manic in the mornings, could do with extending the hours to space everyone out. No restaurant so book one ahead of your stay as most had a long wait time. Room was clean and we had one on the ground floor next to the park in block 1 (hotel is spread over different buildings) which was lovely as there are tables and chairs to relax outside your room. The pool was clean and a great temperature (no pool service) but pool towels and ice machine. Valet were very obliging and got my car cleaned for me at a reasonable rate. Overall I think the website portrays it as more upmarket than it is, but very enjoyable stay.

Great location; close to ocean & old town
Hotel Milo is in a fantastic location, right on the beach - equidistant between the marina and the old town. I had booked a mini-Milo room, which was pretty expensive anyway, but it's Santa Barbara ... I was gratefully upgraded on arrival to a standard double; which in itself was pretty small but very clean and nice views of the ocean - so would avoid the mini-Milo, which must be very small. The grounds of the hotel are lovely, spreading over several low-rise buildings. There is no bar as such, but you buy decent bottles of Cali wine from the reception and enjoy them on reception, and there is a daily wine-tasting in the afternoon. Would recommend, but would avoid the mini rooms - they are what they say on the tin!

Had a lovely stay at hotel, the room was really nicely laid out, well furnished and the hotel was in a perfect spot on the beach front. Staff were really pleasant, we got a free room upgrade, pool area was great. Wish we'd stayed longer!
