We had a wonderful stay. Great location between Cannery row and fishermans warf: Beds are so comfortable! Rooms beautifully decorated, quiet and clean. Staff very accommodating and helpful. Great hotel.

The Fess Parker was a very good choice for my wife and me. Our room was clean, spacious and quiet, the property overall is lovely, and it was in an ideal location (an easy walk to downtown, and literally across the street from East Beach). Regarding reviews that suggest that the hotel is "dated," we saw no signs of that; our room and the public areas, while not brand-new, were certainly up to date, and we had no complaints. The only hiccup had to do with the front desk staff, which seemed inexperienced and a bit robotic in their communication. (But the concierge and bell staff were great.) Also, guests who book their reservations through Hilton seem to get preferential treatment (e.g., free WiFi). Neither of those issues was a deal-killer, though, and we would recommend this hotel to others.

Nice place to sit by the pool, play tennis (clay courts), walk on the beach, visit the spa (spa prices are quite high) or have a nice meal. The location is very nice. The rooms are nice and the staff is friendly.

I lived in Santa Barbara for a number of years and made my journey back to enjoy the beautiful place again. The staff at the Milo were generally knowledgeable on the local activities, but I felt that the young staff can definitely learn more about what Santa Barbara can offer besides wine-tasting. The room did not have AC and can be quite stifling. I suppose converting a historic building can be a challenge. However, you cannot beat the proximity to the beach and delightful breakfast at this price point in Santa Barbara. Highly recommended.
