Think Twice About Staying At the Milner
We got this email from a family that stayed at the super ghetto Milner Hotel near the Park. If you're a local, I'm sure you've heard some crazy stories about that place. Post your story about the Milner below after reading about this family's nightmare.

Subject: A suggestion from a parent of one of your skate boarders.

Hi Rob,

On Wednesday last I drove my 14 year old son and his four friends to your skate park from Key Largo Florida. Before leaving we made it a point to look up your web site and see which hotels you recommended.

Your first choice on your list, The Milner, said within skating distance, so we booked our room and headed out. We arrived late at night with a van load of 14 and 15 year old boys to a total dump. The hotel was nasty and all around were dirty and disgusting people.

The carpet in the room smelt like a dead dog and everything was covered with a film of dirt. During the evening one of the hotel employees came in to my sons room and told my son and his friends he had a hot, black 12 year old girl for them and if that did not please them a young boy for them to use.

My suggestion here is do not recommend this hotel for families coming to your skate park, it reflects badly on your company, not to mention how uncomfortable we were for the night.

The upside is we did find a hotel in Tampa, the Double Tree that was excellent, and the rest of the family trip was great!

Thank you,
