"I arrived by taking the amtrak. The staff allowed me to keep my rented bike at the office overnight. Then when no taxi was available to get me back to the train station, the manager took me in her personal car. The customer service was top notch! I will definitely be staying with the Milestone when I return in the future.
"The location was perfect, far enough from the noise of the town but very very walkable. Easy access to the beach. The staff was SO helpful and friendly. The pools were lovely and clean and there was plenty of outdoor seating. Would absolutely stay again. "
"Property was very nice. We stayed in the back building, which was very quiet and had its own parking lot. The room was very space with all the amenities except for a microwave. The bathroom had a sink with the toilet and tub, and a separate sink outside the room which was extremely convenient. The water pressure was great and there were plenty towels. I would definitely stay here again."

"We had a good time at the beach across the street and the shops nearby. Even food is close. Wish we would’ve known that parking was a nightmare. I felt like we were forced into paying the hotel extra for parking. "
