"Close to the beach"
The California Experience, comfortable beds, friendly staff. Bikes available to borrow, great way to get around.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pretty hotel in front of the beach"
The hotel is very well landscaped, simply decorated, and just plain lovely. The grounds were nice, the room was comfortable, the staff was friendly, and the location is great. I felt extremely comfortable walking into the main lobby and was greeted by the friendly staff at the front. Check in was quick and easy. The room was perfect! I couldn't have […] asked for more. It's exactly what I hoped for. We decided to go to the pool a little late, so we only got to spend time there for about an hour because they close the pool area at 10pm. We spent the whole hour in the hot tub that was extremely HOT. I could only put my legs in because it was too hot for me, but boyfriend enjoyed it. My boyfriend and I had a great time here and we will definitely be back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I think this hotel has new owners and they are just figuring things out. Our stay was very disorganized from check in to our daily maid service. They don't show you to your room and their maps are very confusing. We got lost trying to find our room and had to ask for assistance twice. Then on day two and day three we saw guests wondering through the […] parking lots and courtyards lost as well. The rooms are very small and they have no sitting area at all. They have fireplaces in the rooms but it didn't work and maintenance never showed up. The beds are terribly uncomfortable and are in need of replacement. I think once they work out the details it will be a nice place. The staff are very friendly and mostly helpful and you can't beat the location which is right on the waterfront. For a good breakfast go to Sambo's which is right in front of the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A VERY OVER PRICED HOTEL NOT WORTH IT"
Good location but the hotel is very old rooms are very small needs remodeling very badly no cable tv 3 fuzzy stations very over priced for the memorial weekend will not go there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great place, loved the free bike"
Very nice hotel, right next to the ocean. Great breakfast, and they offer a free 2 hr bike rental. My bed was very comfortable. You can take a stroll on the bike path, across the street from the hotel. Only downside - there is a charge to park a car in their lot at night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, close to beach and shopping"
Very happy with our stay. The hotel is definitely old, but has been "freshened up" since our last stay. Love the big grassy area. Breakfast was good, but the breakfast room is too small for the number of guests that were there. Will definitely choose this hotel again next time we are in the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right next to the beach"
Hotel Milo was a wonderful pit stop on our coastal drive on Route 1. Santa Barbara is gorgeous and Hotel Milo captured that beauty perfectly for us. It was right on the beach with free access to bikes that was lovely. The breakfast was delicious and the service of the hotel staff wonderful. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A very well located hotel"
The Hotel Milo is located right across from the beach and very close to downtown and the marina. It has two nice pools and good size rooms. It has just changed its name from the Oceana to the Milo and that has resulted in some minor issues. In our case, no lights worked in the bathroom - not because the bulb had burnt out but because neither light had […] a bulb in it! The staff did rectify the problem rapidly. Also, I suspect some of the staff an the front desk are new. In our case, this resulted in the hotel charging us twice for the room despite the room being already paid for by Expedia. Check your credit card bill carefully. The hotel readily acknowledged the problem but it is very irritating to have to sort this out with the credit card company because the refunds take a long toime to arrive.

"Would Go Back In A Heartbeat"
Loved our room right next to the pool and hot tub. Breakfast was good. Already planning a return trip!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotels.com said that the rate(s) charged to me for 5/10 & 5/11 would "include ALL taxes and fees for the 2 night total of 469.35 -- no extra costs to be paid when I arrived there." Yet the Hotel billed me for 495.27, which is 25.92 more (or, = 12.00 "Service Fee" + 0.96 "Tax" X 2). Who is going to reimburse my Credit Card -- Hotel Milo, or Hotels.com? […] Otherwise the Hotel was very nice and convenient to the Stearns Wharf and State Street. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"on the water"
Milo was a perfect spot to stay & enjoy the beach front or the buzz of State St. Our room was clean & the staff was great. I would certainly stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great Location, Nice Grounds, Clean Rooms... 1 Bad Thing, The Beds Are Terrible!!! So UncomfortableGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"In DESPERATE need of wall insulation"
I hate to give this hotel a poor review. The location is perfect, the hotel is beautiful, the staff is lovely. Unfortunately, we were unable to sleep because you can hear EVERYTHING in the other rooms, everything outside the hotel, every toilet flush, voice, footstep, seagull, passerby, car- EVERYTHING. Two sleepless nights (& even a failed attempt […] at a noise-filled afternoon nap) made for a less than ideal weekend get-away. I can imagine it would be so expensive for the hotel to upgrade the property and remedy this but at $700 a night the property should be near pristine in every way.

Overall (location, cleanliness was fine). But be aware... the "complimentary" breakfast is not complimentary but comes with a $15 service charge. The parking is also a hefty $18. Both fees not included in the initial hotel cost.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hair on tub upon arrival. One bar of soap, there should be one at sink and one in shower. They brought me a second bar. Bed headboard torn fabric. Nice bikes to use. People walk right past your bed on exterior walkway. Great location. Nice breakfast. I'm use to better overall but this place is ok.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a wonderful trip and got an ocean front room. The daily housekeeping service was great and never noticed them. We had a beautiful outdoor patio around the corner from our door with comfortable seating arrangements for around 10 people. We used the vines for rental from the front desk and thought they had been very well maintained and oiled .they […] rode like a dream. Our only drawbacks were that the walls were thin and you could often hear other guests and also so that they have a lot of hidden fees. A daily $12 service fee for use of amenities like gym bike pool and spa...why would that bot be included. You will be charged whether or not you take advantage of them. The hot tub was not as clean as we would have hoped. Ultimately we ended up paying about $500 MORE than our initial quote with no added room service charges. The daily rate of the room fluctuated greatly over the weekend by about $200 at its highest. That was disappointing and left us with a poor feeling upon check out after an ultimately great trip. Everything to do is withing walking distance. Huge plus Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room 131 Terrible"
Sadly, we were very disappointed. Room 131 is awful. Located under a staircase, right next to the room service kitchen & maintenance crew = LOUD! In addition to extreme noise starting around 5am, the room was tiny, low ceilings, broken TV, & tiny bathroom with a stand-up shower that sprays water directly out the shower door and soaks the floor. The […] location and grounds of the hotel were gorgeous, but we clearly got stuck with an awful room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location. Old Santa Barbara charm."
Could not beat the location. Good value considering the location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Would not recommend. Spent $700 for a basic room."
Didn't get what I paid for. No ocean view. Worst service. Would not recommend this to anyone.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not bad, Avoid Second Floor Rooms Next to Office"
During our first night, we were put in room right along Cabrillo Avenue and the windows let in a lot of noise. Once we switched rooms, everything was ideal!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great time here. Fantastic breakfast and loved the bikes they had available for us to use. Nice walk to the pier but the neighborhood around was rather scary. The grounds were kept very nice and the staff was fantastic .I would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Classic Santa Barbara experience"
We love the hotel. It provides a classic Santa Barbara experience with the beautiful Spanish architecture and charming room decor. It is perfectly located and has a great bike rental offering.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close, clean, and comfortable"
Hotel Milo was great for a romantic getaway with my girlfriend. The cleanliness of the hotel was quite satisfactory and the staff was very courteous, offering to help us with our bags and even providing a small band-aid for a minor injury. The hotel is conveniently located very close to State Street, the urban wine trail, and the beach. I would stay […] here again. Also, it was not as loud as others have complained about.

"Very small rooms"
close to the beach with some nice views of ocean and harbor. Rooms are small but nice and clean. The rate is moderate but they add $12.00 "service fee" and parking is $18.00 so add $30 to the listed room rate when shopping. Rooms do not come with AC so if it happens to be hot, the room is uncomfortable. Also, there are no water or soft drink machines […] and no convenience stores close by. Bring whatever you need with you. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, close to the beach"
Unfortunately it was very hot (93 degrees ) while we were there and the hotel does not have AC but the hotel staff was very nice they brought an extra fan to make us comfortable which was greatly appreciated. We enjoyed our stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Suprised that it was recommended to me...."
Not what I expected for the cost. Room was in a bldg. In the rear of the "complex". Room was small. Closet was a recess in the wall with a curtain. Closest parking was on the other side of the bldg past the pool. Would not do it again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice hotel on the beach - fun breakfast area. Unique rooms with the Santa Barbara feel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location/Beautiful view"
After reading the reviews on this Hotel, I wasn't sure what to expect because they were mixed. Pros: My room was a Partial sea view over the pool and my visit was incredible. The Hotel's old style SB charm was throughout the property. The Hotel staff was very helpful, as well. The Hotel is walking distance to the Wharf/Harbor/State Street plus the urban […] wine trail. Cons: I was surprised with the additional fees such as a parking fee/night, resort fee, etc. Overall, great visit and I will be back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

My wife and I sent 3 notes here. Nice room, friendly staff, good location near Stearns Warf and State Street locations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nothing fancy at all"
This hotel is cute and well located but EXTREMELY overpriced. We paid for a 4 star hotel and got the quality of a mid-level and poorly maintained B&B. It was clean but everything in the bathroom was very old. There was nothing "luxury" about it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good location ...thin walls"
While the overall hotel had a great feel and great location the walls were thin and the floors are made of wood. We could hear every move the person above us made and could also hear our neighbors next door.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel across the street from beach"
Very welcoming and attentive staff. Healthy choices for breakfast as well as good, strong European style coffee. Loved being able to ride hotel provided bikes to explore the town. Nice private pool facilities. They also have a large grassy lawn area with patio seating - great for kids to play Frisbee and run around while parents relax and enjoy a cocktail […] (BYO). Overall was very pleased with our stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"beautiful hotel beach, excellant restaurants"
We used every part of the hotel. Wonderful breakfast, lunch right next to the hotel. Fabulous views and the staff could not be better. Really helpful in every way. The dry cleaners even sent back the cash I had left in one pocket and the bellman brought it to me. We loved our rooms,and there is outdoor seating everywhere so can enjoy the weather.no […] matter where you are in the hotel. Really the best and we have been a lot of places.

"Nice Hotel. Nice area by beach with pier."
Stayed one night in our way through. Liked the continental breakfast. Liked the pool area. Nice room. Didn't care for the extra $18 plus $10 service charge fee for parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice location and that's what you pay for."
Just a few steps away from the wharf, this hotel has a great location. We stayed in a room of the $200 category and I expected more to be honest. The room was nice but the bathroom was dated. At the end of our one night stay we were "surprised" by a service fee, that includes the rental bikes, parking, and "complementary" breakfast. If I had had the […] choice, I would have gone to another place for breakfast. You will get the basics and it reminded me more of a hostel than a hotel of this category. All in all we enjoyed our stay very much, there were just minor things that bothered us. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Other then the great location of being right across from the beachand close to state street nothing else to like, not enough parking for guests, hear neighbors talking. could hear neighbor below snor. stairs extremely loud. very dark trying to drive around alleys trying to find parking.

"Nice hotel close to the beach"
I booked my trip through Expedia, however at time of checkout I was charged again in my credit card. I called the hotel to let them know I was double billed.

Great location. Walking distance to tons of cool nightlife.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth the money"
Dirty, outdated. Does not match the description or photos on the Expedia web-site. We stayed at 6 different hotels during a trip through California and this was the only one that disappointed. This place was such a let-down the family wanted to escape Santa Barbara at the crack of dawn. Less than 2 minutes after my girls left the room, someone from […] housekeeping let themselves in and shut the door behind them. Their cart was no where in sight. I walked in on them going through bags left on the dresser. We had not check out yet. I'm a frequent business traveler and had not ever experienced this level of brazen poaching. Not only is it a sad image to put on a such a dismal place it is not a safe practice for their employees. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
