We stayed at Hotel Milo for our wedding and booked an Ocean View, Deluxe Room, King. We traveled with our small dog and also arrived late due to work.
First, hands down Armando was amazing in accommodating us with personal items. He also facilitated a later move from one room into another.
However, when we first arrived we were placed in room 269 - a beautiful room with an Oceanview. Yet very small. Under no circumstances was this a deluxe room. As it was going on almost midnight, and our wedding was the next day, we just headed to bed. In the morning we checked out our friends 'standard' king deluxe room and it was almost double the size. Talking to Armando, we found out that
- they do not get any information from Expedia regarding deluxe or standard (so he said)
- BUT he changed our room and had someone help us move our items :o) to room 151 AMAZING!!!
The rooms overall do not look like portrayed on Expedia. They are older and could use some updating. We did not mind, because the proximity to the beach/pier made up for it.
It is PERFECT traveling with your dog. Unfortunately, not all adhere to picking up after their animals. But that is not the Hotels fault.
Parking is expensive if you are not willing to park on the street or don't try. You can park for free on Bath St (side street Cabrillo) starting 6pm-9am and then 75min during the day. Otherwise you pay $30 for valet. We managed to get away with free parking.
