Unfortunately we thought the website pictures made the place look a lot more high end than what it was. Yes it's a nice place in a good location but we found the rooms small and not in excellent condition, very dusty too (this is long term dust, not forgotten this time round). No a/c in the rooms so would be...

Front desk agent was great. ask for his name, very politely answered Angel. First impression of hotel was very indeed impressive.  Couldn't have been more sweet, giving me directions to tourist sites. I was attending along with a helpful map, ensuring parking in car park and facilitating an easy check in. If nothing else had gone right with hotel this...

This hotel is perfect for a small weekend getaway with your S.O. and the staff was both wonderful and professional. When we arrived everyone (especially our man Angel) helped us out in making our stay as fun and amazing as humanly possible. I would love to return soon mind you I've been recommending this place to everyone I know.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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.
