Friendly staff, great location for convention center, clean
Smallest shower I've ever seen
Great DTLA location. Clean comfortable, no frills.

The location being downtown LA that's all.
I don't like that online the hotel room looks 100% different than how the rooms really look. I don't like that the bed was broken right when we walked in. I don't like that they have a sink next to the television set and outlet system (very dangerous). I don't like that the bathroom toilet had urine in it already and the shower grout had hair and a sort of residue on the floor. I don't like that the room smelt musky and dusty. I don't like that the I spent so much for false advertising. All in all I don't like this place. And there is literally no other positive except for the location, that's it.
Good for Business Travel
I stayed at the Milner Hotel while on a business trip to LA. The hotel is located within walking distance from my office. My overall experience was good but I wouldn't stay there for a vacation. I stayed in two different rooms during my stay and the best of the two was the King Suite, it had plenty of room and looked newer and cleaner. The other room with a queen bed was too small and looked older and not as clean.
Only one of the two elevators was working and so it was a long wait for the elevator. At one point both elevators were broken and I stayed on the eleventh floor, so that's a long way up and down.
It got the job done, the breakfasts were pretty good. The elevators were a little scary, and the building and facilities are pretty old and it's showing its age. The room was small but big enough for the basics. It was a little uncomfortable at first, but it got more comfortable as time went on.
Parking is not included and costs $18/day next to the hotel. The shower was almost comically small. My shoulders are wider than it. No refrigerator in the room.
Reception some staff rude have practical experienc
This was my second time in four months but this time experience some staff rude as if she don't care for guest to come back for stay or not Secondly some rooms no have proper wifi Thirdly some rooms are with OH MY GOD restrooms the shower place not even sufficient to stand
Not fancy but good location and clean
Liked the location. Was 1 block away from where I needed to be the next morning.
My room was super small.
Not what was pictured
I was with friends. Their room had a closet blocked by a side table and a side area with wires hanging from the ceiling. The two person room I had was smaller that the one person room my friends had and the bathroom was barely big enough for one person to stand and turn around or do anything. The room was not cleaned all the way and they did not give us fresh towels. Breakfast was meager: waffle maker, juice/milk, hot/cold cereal, fruit and pastries. I would never stay there again. Nothing in the pictures was what in my room and nothing in my room reflected the amount I paid. No one in my party was happy with their room. The location was fine as we could walk everywhere we needed, but I had to park in a lot down the street. All in all this was an expensive hotel for no reason.
One star for location and one star for price in co
This hotel is very close to Staples Center, LA Convention Center, and LA Live. There is a Starbucks and Ralphs nearby as well as several affordable restaurants, including two 24 hour spots. The cost of this hotel, compared to other hotels in the location, is quite cheap. The staff is friendly enough.
You get what you pay for. This hotel is in quite an old building so some things can't be helped or would require a major investment. If you know what you're in for this hotel could be good enough for a short trip. If you're expecting a 3+ star hotel, look elsewhere. The rooms are very small. The sink is in the room instead of in the bathroom. The showers are very small. The windows don't shut 100%, street sounds can be heard. Especially at 1:00 AM when people are beginning to leave bars or concerts at the Staples Center. The closets are tiny, the hangers in them have to be at an angle to shut the door. The door to the room I had during this trip would stick; so, I had to be extra forceful to get it open or closed. During my two visits at this hotel I requested and was approved for late checkout. Neither time was housekeeping informed. The first time the housekeeper was knocking on the door at 11am trying to get in to clean the room. My Spanish and her English were both poor so while the point got across eventually, it was awkward because I was just out of the shower. This time I returned to my room to find the door propped open with a wet towel and nobody around. None of my things were disturbed so I shut the door to get ready to shower. The housekeeper promptly knocked and asked if I was checking out. I let her know I had late check out and she returned to another room. The room I stayed in during this trip had a faint foul odor. They could use some of those air fresheners that go off on a timer. Finally, roaches. During my trip last year I killed one large roach. I knew this wasn't a great hotel so I wasn't exactly shocked by the creature. This time I killed one small one in the evening and 10 more in the morning (ranging from very small to large). The number of them was disturbing because I would catch the movement in the corner of my eye and then kill them. If I was less observant I may not have noticed all of them; but truthfully I may have missed many more even with the number I killed.
The location and staff were excellent
The room in bad shape. Very old and dated. Smelled. Not clean. Sheets were old.
The location is good. It's near the metro and convention center. My room was quiet. The free breakfast is basic but a nice add-on.
The hotel is old and while the lobby looks decent, my room felt really dirty. It also smelled bad. I was afraid to step on the carpet with my bare feet or even my socks. I also didn't feel comfortable drinking the tap water there so I had to buy bottled water. There are also lots of homeless people hanging around the hotel. The front desk attendant doubles as the "security" attendant as well. There were times that I wondered how easily homeless and other uninvited guests could get into the building. On the last night I did see a roach in my bathroom. The ice machines were all broken except for one.
