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. Hotel Milo Santa Barbara is a member of The Independent Collection (IC), a growing collection of cultivated lifestyle hotels in gateway cities across the US.

Checked in around 9pm for a 3 night stay. Front desk staff not well trained. Wanted to charge me for the cost of the room even though it was being direct billed to the organization hosting me. The room was very hot upon check-in, no thermostat in room to control temperature.
