Recent guest reviews

The hotel was right next to the beach and plenty of restaurants. The staff was great especially Francisco from the front desk. He was very helpful and professional during our stay. Fabio and Ana were also very kind and friendly.

The staff was super friendly and let myself and my husband stay an hour later for checkout so we weren’t waiting around for hours to catch our cruise.

Staff friendly rooms small and clean issue with elevator but staff was helpful

The staff was helpful and friendly, the hotel is in great location. However, the room is teeny tiny, there is barely room to walk in between beds, there is nowhere to hang up wet towels or bathing suites, the air-conditioning unit is loud, really really loud, with bubbling water in it and it turns on and off all the time (like turns off and turns back on in 2 mins) so you can't even "get used to it" as background noise. Free breakfast was exactly the same for the 6 nights we were there, mostly store bought bread and bagels. If you're choosing this hotel based on location, it's great.

We had no idea what to expect from South Beach. Food was insanely expensive along to strip, but the hotel was iconic and cute. Nothing fancy, but the staff was so nice. Julio, the bartender at the hotel was an absolute joy and made our evening just hanging out at the lobby bar a blast. They offer good coffee in the lobby and a substantial free breakfast. The Beacon was the best part of our stay.

The art decor was very eye catching. The staff was exceptionally pleasant and always gave a warm welcome. The bell man Francisco went out of his way to make our stay at the Beacon a wonderful experience. Overall the Beacon is a great place if you dont mind the hotel room being small, the amenities being outdated and the getting the same complementary breakfast everyday.

Complimentary breakfast and beach chairs.

Nice retro vibe. Great location in Ocean Drive.

The property was very beautiful and had that historic deco architecture going on. All the staff was very helpful Julio, Naiika, and all made my stay comfortable and memorable.

Perfect for what we needed! Beach chairs in the room for us to use. Free infused water that changed at least daily. Sometimes more! Perfect to help keep hydrated during a party weekend. Staff was so friendly it felt like they were on the trip with us as friends but were still professional. Made our girls weekend Perfect. We will definitely be back for another weekend or a trip with my husband.

Location

Bartender made delicious mojitos!

Overall good there are some furniture that needs to be replaced, carpet clean however the hotel is very cute and staff were great and friendly. This is a cute little hotel in a great location. I would definitely stay there again.

Everything was great friendly staff. I didnt care for the elevator being small n slow.

The room was nice, the staff was nice also. Its just that Ocean Drive has turned into a sketchy area and its best to stay away from that area.

The Beacon is a quaint little boutique property. I was there for 1 night. Therefore, I didnt spend much time in the room. My experience was a positive one overall.
