Set on 2.5 acres of California coastline, Hotel Milo Santa Barbara exudes Spanish-style architecture, with an inviting outdoor courtyard with public spaces and two outdoor pools. According to Time Out Los Angeles, the “location cannot be beat.”

Santa Barbara isn’t just known for beaches; it also has a lively bar scene. The hotel is a 10-minute stroll to Stearns Wharf and the Funk Zone, making it simple to bar-hop and try out various restaurants. Since beach cruiser bicycle rentals are included in the resort fee, be sure and hop on one to peruse the wharf and take in spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean.

Each morning, guests are greeted by staff serving a continental breakfast of pastries, fruit and juices. It’s a great way to start the day before heading off to experience sand and surf. While the hotel has a fitness center; it is also near bike trails, outdoor yoga classes and hiking spots.

As the sun sets, retreat to a guest room that provides Wi-Fi access, down bedding and a mini-bar. Many guest rooms feature partial or full ocean views with balconies or patios. Hotel Milo is a valet parking only hotel for $30 per day with in and out privileges.

    Friendly staff.

    I think that having "valet parking" is unnecessary. Just add $15 or $20 to your room rates and let people park themselves in the alley behind the rooms. Why take the car from the guests at reception, only to let the drag their luggage down the alley to their room? Otherwise, it is a decent hotel/motel. Thanks.

    They didn't charge the the amount that travelzoo email stated. The floor of the room was a bit sandy.

    Nearly everything, the room was dangerous with high rise stairs with rickedy handrails, step up into bathroom, unmarked and very filthy heating vent. The staff was pretentious and ignorant. Upon arrival we had no TV or phone. Locations were not well marked and we had to drag our luggage over rough asphalt.

    The room was very small and uncomfortable. It was not worth the price.

    Our room wasn't ready at 4 pm. The bill was confusing when booking through Travelzoo and the hotel wouldn't give us a proper receipt. I will probably not book through Travelzoo again.

    Was greeted with a "happy anniversary" when checking in and they also upgraded to an ocean view room at no extra cost.
    Other Comments 9:45 was told nothing was going to be replenished because it was too close to 10 AM. So no coffee or orange juice. Finally got him to get us a fork. Most of fruit was already gone. What we did have was very fresh and good. If you say breakfast is until 10 AM then you should make sure everything is available. Also valet told us if we used handicap spaces we would still have to pay the $30 a day. We were self parking in handicap. Later front desk said we would not be charged. Overall we enjoyed our stay very much.
