This place was beautiful! Great hotel my wife found while on business in SB. Clean, friendly staff, and super close to everything downtown. Not cheap, but you definitely get what you pay for. We've bookmarked this place for future visits.

I booked 13 rooms with Hotel Milo for an office retreat and they provided excellent service the entire trip. The rooms are beautiful, clean, and comfortable. There are plenty of areas to sit outside and bask in the sun, restaurants are close, and a great rate for being right across the street from the ocean/wharf. Their staff is professional and the Manager, Garrett, was very accommodating. I would book this hotel again for both professional and personal trips. Thank you!

We stayed during move in weekend at UCSB. A little pricey but I think because everything was sold out. The place was super cute and very boutique. Close to the pier and harbor, everything within walking distance

The location of this hotel is ideal. Right across from the beach, close to downtown, and the marina. This is our third stay at the hotel. The rooms are newly designed, comfortable, and clean. The staff was professional and helpful as usual. We will stay there again.

Room Tip: Best view but less road noise may be found along the center lawn area 2nd floor.

Really can't say enough good about this place... Stunning hotel, great location right on the beach front between the pier and the harbour. After a long drive from San Francisco we were greeted by a very friendly assistant general manager garret who couldn't do enough for you and gave us a wealth of local knowledge throughout our stay! Nothing was too much bother for anyone. Room was very clean and just perfect with an amazing mini bar and great coffee and machine. Plenty of fluffy towels and dressing gowns to boot! Gorgeous courtyard gardens to while away the evening with local beers and wines available! Our favourite was the tables and chairs with built in gas fires to cozy around at night! The only thing I would say is that the housekeeper was very eager and wanted to get in as early as 7:30am on the first morning but was polite when we asked for a bit more time to get ready for the day! I can't wait to return. Special mention to nick for his stories and excellent customer service.
