Avalon Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Walked to beach, clubs, dinner and shopping. Kids rode bicycles to local park for tennis and basketball. One of our best vacations. I highly recommend The Avalon for location.

The Avalon staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. The continental breakfast was great, the lounge and restaurant were perfect for our needs, and everything was just right.

I asked for one extra towel and was asked "what I needed an extra towel for". Note I never received the extra towel.

I liked the ambiance and the service at this hotel. The room was very clean and nicely appointed. Only complaints are the continental breakfast included in the room rate was disappointing- coffee or espresso and a croissant or cereal. Most hotels offering continental breakfast at least have a variety of pastries and usually fruit or yogurt. Also, the elevator was dirty and unattractive. As nicely as the rest of the hotel was appointed, they could certainly use some cosmetic work on the elevator. I know that sounds petty, but it was off-putting.

Location is the best attribute of the hotel. Friendly staff. Horrible food in the cafe (not in restaurant). Had lunch in the cafe, the chicken salad was bad, was served without chicken first but when I asked, they brought an old dry and greasy ckecken breast. The salad greens were not fresh, however, plenty of the Caesar Dressing

What we loved about the Avalon was the old Miami charm, the friendliness of staff, and the oasis of calm. Walking down Oceam Drive the hotels are loud and raucous, with staff aggressively promoting their breakfast, lunch or dinner. When we got to the end of the street we found a quiet lovely old hotel waiting for us. That's what impressed me.

Nice quaint Art Deco hotel, great staff and location. Room and bathroom are on the small size but comfortable. Loved the outside patio, great place to people watch.

I had an amazing time celebrating my birthday and ringing in the New Year at this location. The New Year's festivities were outstanding the fireworks the food the amazing staff I loved it all. And I am looking forward to my return trip to this location. (Alex, George, Jackie & Janet you guys made me feel at home from the moment I checked in and I want to say THANK YOU!)

Our stay at the Avalon Hotel was wonderful. Traveling with children (a 1 yr old and a 4 yr old) can be very challenging, but the staff was very accommodating to our needs the entire time. Oh yeah and the Paella at the restaurant downstairs was AWESOME!! We will definitely visit again.

It's a bit older of a hotel but staff is super freindly and helpful. The location was great and it wasn't too pricey, valet is a bit pricey but then again it's Miami beach. We walked everywhere so it was nice and they had a decent complimentary breakfast. I would recommend the hotel and definitely return

Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. There are lots of restaurants/bars nearby. Short walk to the ocean as well!

Very efficient staff. Good valet parking. Good location close to tons of restaurants.

The front desk didn't seem to know too much about where we could listen toSalsa music other than Mango's. They need to know more about what goes on outside of South Beach. We were not allowed to listen to music at the restaurant A fish called Avalon unless we had dinner there. All we wanted to do was have something to drink and have dessert while listening to the music.

When I first got to Avalon I wasn't suppose to check in until 3pm but when I arrived to Florida for the first time ever with the beating hot weather I was surprised and glad that they allowed me to check in right away when I got there. I like the Avalon because it seems like it was in the middle of everything to me. The room that I got was clean and neat and feels so good with the ac on esp. when the weather is so hot in Florida. The beds were comfortable and clean. There isn't too much noise when sleeping which is good. Wasn't disturb by any noise or anyone. Made it feel like home! The staffs are very friendly and very helpful. They can help you out in anything. I enjoyed my stay at the Avalon and would def recommend it to people and book it again in the future. :)

The Avalon is in a good location and the staff members were great! They are so helpful and want to make sure you have everything you need. The room was small but it was clean and the beds were comfortable.

Better than expected, the hotel was very clean and the staff was friendly. Had some appetizers and wine at the bar the first nite which was very good. Very accommodating. Only negative I can think of was the free breakfast had only a few options, but was adequate.

Valet is terrible, they were never to be found. I had to go inside to find them, room was so small and had a weird scent. Pay a little more and stay somewhere else. Breakfast consist of coffee, tea, fruit and dry cereal.

This hotel is right where the action is in SOBE right on Ocean Drive across from the beach. Restaurant in front looked great .....lots of diners but we did not eat there. Short distance to Lincoln Road restaurants and shops. Good breakfast that came with the room. While not luxurious , it was clean and comfortable.

Will not come back. Very over priced and rooms were tiny

a little too expensive for my taste though. Clean and great area for fun and dining.
