Recent guest reviews

clean and comfortable, nice access to the beach. book on short notice, parking was reasonable

Everything was great had a little problem with the tv but everything was great food was great

This is a nice hotel to stay close to the beach. Nice ambience. The only issue that we found was with the room. It was very small and even the restroom was also very small.

Staff were so nice and friendly. Hotel is closed to everything. Beach is right in the front and nightlife is around the corner. Rooms are not that big, but I wasn't there for the entire day, so it was good and convenient for me. I loved it!

Great Staff, Clean room, perfect location next to the beach.

Great hotel. Staff was very courteous and accommodating. We highly enjoyed our stay. We will surely stay at the Beacon again.

Initially the room I was given flooded so was given a free upgrade. The second night while laying in bed a roach was crawling on the desk about a foot away from my head. I called the front desk and within a minute there was someone there that did find and kill it. They offered to move me and/ or spray the room but at that point I was just tired. I gave them a good rating because the staff was amazing, the location was great and 1 little bug wasn't going to ruin my vacation.

Location....location....location. Decent boutique hotel that is very close to the beach, shopping and night life in south beach. Staff was very nice and courteous. Room was spacious though rest rooms are little bit small.

Right by the beach on Ocean drive, very friendly staff gave us directions and always very nice and helpful. The Location is great, the rooms aren't big but they are comfortable. Served free breakfast, and they have Wifi if you need to work makes it convenient.

The hotel is an Ideal location., towels and chairs provided for beach which is great. The rooms are small but are boutique style-cute and colorful. There is complimentary breakfast which is a great way to eat while on a budget for your entire stay! The staff is very welcoming. I would recommend coming to this place when visiting miami. Hotel is right on the strip, which is great for visiting all ideal locations.

Nice hotel, parking is 25$ a day, great location, very good service, the breakfast was not the best I had but it is nice

The only negative is the room smelt of cigarettes when we first arrived. Other than that wonderful weekend! Comp breakfast every morning was great!

My trip to Miami was special because I stayed at the Beacon. Best lobby ever! Best place to watch the theater in the round walking by, day and night..........Don't miss the Art Deco Museum down the street.

Staff was friendly and hotel was nice and clean would stay here again and recommend . Location is the best .

The hotel is convenient to the beach and many excellent restaurants. Bus stops for regular and tour buses are within a couple of blocks. The staff is very accommodating and we used the valet parking frequently.

The hotel is priced on location. It is a restored Art Deco building. The structure is extremely charming & the restoration was done well, however size and amenities leave much to be desired. I have seen prison cells larger than the room I stayed in. A complimentary breakfast is included & the outdoor beachfront patio seating is very nice, however it was a very basic breakfast; eggs, bacon, sausage, and fruit. You can easily find a $60 chain hotel that offers better breakfasts. The staff made an effort to be helpful, however their actions could easily be construed as extremely insulting to certain individuals. If the South Beach location is important to you, this hotel is certainly in the right place. It is in the heart of the South Beach Miami party zone. There are multiple bars & restaurants within a five block walking distance. The walkability factor is amazing & the bars are open late... Well past what is last call in most other states. This is great. But be prepared to 'buy in' to the experience. I did actually enjoy the hotel and the surrounding vicinity very much but did not find it remotely worth the price. This experience is for a type of person who is definitely not me & it did not come close to meeting my personal standards of luxury. For the price, I expect much more class & dignity. If there is such a thing as pseudo-luxury, this is it. If location is less of a factor for you, you can easily find a much better value elsewhere.

Excellent location and great customer service! The Beacon is a quaint, clean boutique hotel close to the beach. The staff is professional and very friendly, and the food very tasty!

The stay was great. Breakfast was delicious! All the staff were extremely friendly and nice. Everything was super clean and beautiful. Anything you need just ask and they will accommodate you. Will definitely stay here when I come back to Miami! Beach is across the street all the stores were walking distance and perfect area to the bars and restaurants. Already missing it so much.

This hotel met my expectations and the staff was amazing! I would highly recommend this hotel if you want to be close to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Since the hotel is in a central location, everything was within walking distance.

Greetings from the Beacon, Thank you for taking the time and to talk about your experience. We truly appreciate your feedback. While we are happy to know that you fully enjoyed our location, being located in the heart of south beach has its perks, we understand that a boutique size room is not for everyone. We, however, like to think that it's part of our charm. Thank you again for your feedback, it was a pleasure serving you. Alexeis Beacon South Beach

Initially the room I was given flooded so was given a free upgrade. The second night while laying in bed a roach was crawling on the desk about a foot away from my head. I called the front desk and within a minute there was someone there that did find and kill it. They offered to move me and/ or spray the room but at that point I was just tired.
