Good Location

Rooms very small but clean. The beds were very comfortable, had trouble sleeping one night because of all the noise from room next door and also building next to hotel. The coupon for Breakfast at Johnny Rockets was pretty good, we ate there every morning. Rstaurants very expensive, but the food was good.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Did not need a car, hotel location was good. We walked or took bus. The Miami Local Bus is only $.25 and takes you around SB area. You can walk to Washington Ave and catch bus anywhere along that street.

Good location and excellent staff

We were well received. The Hotel is nicely redone and the staff are dedicated to deliver very good service and they succeed. We will probably have occasion to return to Miami for the same reason that prompted our recent visit. We intend to stay at The Beacon next time.

Very Friendly

Excellent location in Beautiful South Beach, Miami. Scenic and historical, a park across the street and the hotel gave us directions to Gloria Estavan's restaurant. Lively times in Miami South Beach. Breakfast discounts available from Hotel as well. Very enjoyable!

Perfect location on South Beach

This hotel was perfectly located between all of the hot spots on SoBe; the beach, restaurants on Ocean Drive and the night life. The only negative was that the facilities at the hotel were closed wduring our stay. No swimming pool or fitness center.

Warm & Inviting

The staff was very helpful and professional. The room exceeded our expectations. Directly across from the beach and located in the middle of Ocean Blvd's main strip between 7th and 8th streets. The bed was awesome, big plasma TV and marble floors. We didnt mind staying in the room romancing each other because it was as nice as all the sights that were outside. We even received a Thank you letter from the staff within a week of our stay. The Beacon will be our home in South Beach for years to come.

Very Friendly Hotel Reps

The Beacon Hotel, located right on the South Beach Strip, was an exellent choice. The reps were very friendly and helpful. The rooms on the facing the main strip are quit nice. I checked out the rooms not on the main strip, and were not as nice, but were still acceptable. Access to all the clubs, restaurants, and shopping was very good, as a car was not needed and could get by walking or taking a taxi cab. If you were looking to go to downtown south beach to visit little havana i would drive or take a taxi cab. overall, i would stay there again..

Great local for the money

Our stay at the Beacon Hotel was very nice and pleasant. You couldn't ask for a better place to stay for the money. It's located in the heart of South Beach where everything was happening. We had a deluxe/king room and it was comfortable, clean, bright and roomy enough for two. Our bed was very comfy too. (I have a bad back so a bed that doesn't bother my back is a big plus.) The staff was very courteous and helpful from check-in to check-out. My only gripe was the early morning racket from the daily city trash pickup, which came from the back of the building where our room was located. But all in all, it was a great stay for the money.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

The Beacon Hotel sits directly across from the beach. You don't need to pack your beach towels. The hotel provides them. Everything was within walking distance. Lots of great bars and restaurants. One of our favorite nightclubs is the Clevelander. Situated outdoors, the Cleveland played great dance music and the vibe is very lively.

Excellent location

The Beacon Hotel was great as a central location on South Beach. The room was very clean and airy (although unless you have an Eastern room, your view is of other buildings). Being in the center of Ocean, it is right on the beac, and walking distance of most shopping and dining areas.

very friendly and very helpful

The Beacon Hotel was a very nice hotel. The entire staff was very friendly and very accommodating! The room was a pleasant surprise! very clean and very bright. Air conditioning was on when we entered the room and it was very comfortable. The beds were one of the bed I have ever slept in! The continental breakfast offered next door at Johnny Rocket's was great. Everything about this vacation was great! The weather even co-operated. I would definitely stay here again.
