Milo sounded like the perfect hotel for our second of five hotels we would be staying at on our trip up the SoCal coast. It is just a few steps from the water, our room had a nice view of it and the hotels' grassy common area but it just didn't live up to our expectations. Don't get me wrong, the room we stayed in was spacious and had everything we needed but the devil was in the details; no counter space in the bathroom, no mirror either. The wash sink was in an alcove just outside the bathroom, the shower/bath was tired and stained and subject to sudden changes in temperature. There was no hair dryer and we had to ask for ice. The front desk was overwhelmed when we arrived and had to wait a long time for service and the breakfast room was too small and poorly laid out for the flow of diners.
Would I stay at the Milo again? Not likely. Would I recommend the Milo to others? No.
