The lady upfront picked up my call as i was gonna be late i asked her if i had 2 king bed rooms and one 2 queen bed she said no asked me to go on the site where i made my reservation and cancel instead of just switching a room done that before ao many times and i told her if so i will make reservation elsewhere then she decided to do the change not ngood not cool have ao much to say juat don’t want and have time to to small of a “HOTEL” i would say just not what the rating is and the pics lie totally folks sorry have to be honest

Hotel was nice in general, Staff was extremely helpful. Rooms were clean.Bathrooms are extremely small. not much of a view out the window. Very noisy from other guests taking showers or flushing toilets. I guess that has to do with the age of the building. Sink kept backing up but would eventually drain. Free Breakfast is mediocre. I opted for the breakfast menu instead. Great Location!

We loved the location and having breakfast on their veranda every morning The Beacon is our go to place everytime we are in Miami! Staff is awesome so accommodating! Love it!

The only plus is it’s proximity to the beach. The first deluxe room was a disaster. They switched us over to another room which was a shade better but nothing to write home about. Very musty, humid, no proper exhaust in the bathroom, very dated, the door was broken, the fridge was broken. Some of the front desk staff was friendly, I wouldn’t say all. The breakfast was very average, the restaurant staff was pretty friendly and kind. I didn’t think it was very family friendly, overall wouldn’t recommend to my friends.

Awesome location. Hotel is beautiful. Elavator is a little dicey it bounces a little when you get to 5th floor

Upon checking in the hotel staff was great, especially Agustin! Highly recommend this hotel

Very fast check in and friendly service! Great location!

Hotel was fine, small building and small rooms. Hotel did accommodate us well. Staffs was very friendly

Good locational and quiet. Easy to reach everything on the beach

The hotel is in an excellent location, and the staff are amazing. The hotel itself, though, needs a serious upgrade. The room was a bit dirty and in need of touchups. One of the beds in our room would partially collapse when I laid in it, which made for uncomfortable sleep.
