Excellent Hotel

The staff was extremely friendly, professional, and helpful. I was very impressed with their level of service. I loved that the hotel was right on the beach and among so many places to eat and shop. The hotel was very quiet and clean. It was not the nicest, or the most luxurious hotel I've ever stayed at, but it was not bad for the money. I would definitely consider staying at this hotel again in the future.

There are tons of places to eat, and all are pretty comparable in quality. Just select one with a menu that looks good to you.

Bed bugs, bed bugs, bed bugs

Family with a 3 year old. Bed bugs ate us alive. Poor service and dirty hotel are the other reasons that made us check out earlier than planned. Only reason this hotel still in service is the location. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Solid Hotel

In the heart of south beach and right next to the beach. Great service and helpful for recommendations about places to go/eat. Rooms were nice but bathroom could have been a little bigger.

Great Location

Have stayed at the Beacon many times. It can't be beat for it's location. They've put new beach chairs in the rooms that have backpacks built in and have enough room to pack a full day's worth of beach going gear. The rooms are small (consistent with the other South Beach boutique hotels) but the beds are very comfortable. I hope the roof top deck gets its certificate of occupancy soon--what a great place to lay in the sun if it's too windy for the beach. The only caution is to watch your credit card statements very carefully. The last 3 times I've stayed there I've found charges for the mini-bar--which I never use. They've removed the charges each time after I called and told them I do not use this service. It's still an irritation to find I was mistakenly charged for something--on THREE separate stays.

If you get dinner at a sidewalk cafe before 8pm many offer a 50% discount. Makes dining on Ocean Drive very affordable. There are tons of dining choices available.

"Location Rocks"

The Hotel is small but the staff really goes out of their way to know you by name. The location is "awsome" you are right in the middle of the "South Beach Lifestyle". I have been to several parts of Florida and it may have been the prettiest water yet.

Stay at The Beacon !

We went for a weekend of fun and NO stress. The Beacon is a great place to do just that. Directly across from the beach, everything from burgers to seafood within walking distance. The staff gets special mention--awesome. The rooms at front of the hotel can be noisy at night, so the views are great but don't plan on going to bed early.

Fun time

We went down for the boat show and had great time. Hotel was great for a couple, but thankfully we left the kids at home. The only bad thing was the trash trucks waking you up if your room is on the alley side.

A Beacon of light.

We had a great experince. One day it rained and we came back from the beach while the room was being cleaned. When we left for dinner the maid came back and freshened up the room with new towels etc. This is service above and beyond normal.
