Sun, Surf and Sophistication in a Chic Santa Barbara Beach Hotel

Hotel Milo takes inspiration from Santa Barbara’s most prolific hotelier, Milo Potter, whose magnificent Potter Hotel put this picturesque coastal destination on the map. One of the most centrally located beach hotels in Santa Barbara, Hotel Milo’s lovely 2.5-acre property includes Ambassador Park, a beautiful lawn framed by iconic California palm trees that once served as the grand entrance to the Potter Hotel. Built in the traditional Spanish-style architecture that reflects this city’s rich colonial history, this classic Santa Barbara hotel steps from the beach features 122 charming guestrooms, as well as a beautiful courtyard with outdoor pools and gardens.

With pristine Pacific beaches right at his doorstep and the majestic Santa Ynez Mountains rising in the distance, it’s easy to see why Mr. Potter first settled into this beautiful sunny corner of California. As one of the few chic Santa Barbara beach hotels, Hotel Milo invites you to celebrate this longtime love affair with the great outdoors—relax in the courtyard or take one of our Milo beach cruiser bicycle rentals for a spin down the beach. For a full excursion, hop in a Jeep and head out for a chauffeured wine tour of Santa Barbara wine country, or take the family out for a day of animals and rides at the Santa Barbara Zoo. Our hotel’s staff will also gladly share a few neighborhood secrets, from their favorite Santa Barbara restaurants to the best tasting rooms to visit on the Urban Wine Trail.
