Beacon Hotel South Beach

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I would recommend The Beacon Hotel to anyone planning a trip to Miami Beach. Great location, wonderful staff and amenities.

Do not pay extra to stay here it is not worth the money. There are way better hotels in South Beach near the beach that are better than this hotel. Hotel staff is not friendly and out right rude at times in the restaurant. Rooms are small and not taken care of. Electrical wiring was hanging from the socket in room. Window was broken.Elevator does not work. Overall not even a 1-star hotel

we feeled very well after changing our room. Thank you

I booked through Orbitz. Since 3 adults we staying in the room; I decided to paid extra for a larger room or ocean view. We got there Friday night and left Monday afternoon. Well, we got a tiny room. The bathroom was so small you couldn't get dress comfortably. My room faced a construction site that was about 4 feet away from us. Knowing 3 adults were checking in; they only put 2 beach towels and 2 chairs in the room. We requested an extra beach towel and beach chair Saturday morning. We got an extra towel but were told they had no more chairs and when one is avail they will let me know. We got the 3rd chair the day we left:-( Saturday morning friend showered . When it was my turn I noticed the tub was clogged. We were starving so we ran out to grab a bite. We came back a couple hours later and the water still hadn't drained.I called the front desk and we waited over an hour for someone to come to unclog the tub. Finally we all showered and headed out. When we got back to the hotel the elevator wasn't working! We had to walk up and down 4 floors until we left because the elevator still hadn't been fix when we left.The hotel is in a prime location so no need to rent a car. Everything is within walking distance. Since it was our last night we stayed out late in hopes to sleep in. Monday 7am we woke up to drilling & banging nonstop! I called front desk and they gave us a late checkout for free. however, because we stayed until 330 they charged my card 57 dollars. AWFUL!!!

Hotel was close to the beach. Breakfast included in stay was nice. Rooms a bit small but adequate.

I took my daughter to South Beach for her birthday on the 4th of July. The hotel is in the middle of everything. Very convenient and easy to get to restaurants, party scene and excursions. I would recommend staying here!!

This hotel is located right on the strip, facing south beach. We had a wonderful stay with friendly staff and a easy walk to the beach, shops, and restaurants. The food and drinks at the hotel's restaurant was excellent! The hotel has a cool retro theme that we enjoyed. We loved the view of the beach from our room which was spacious and clean. The bathroom was a little snug but overall we had a great stay. Even though valet parking is $25, it's convenient to not have to worry about trying to find parking because we saw none.

Terrible Experience my Room was the Only Bad Experience in My Life

The beacon hotel has a great location assessable to the beach what a great staff

Everything we did there was good from the valet parking, free breakfast and happy hour specials. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The lady at the front desk( I think her name was Sylvia) was extremely helpful while helping we print my boarding passes and making recommendations of things to do around town.

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.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review and feedback. My sincerest apologies your stay with us did not meet or surpass expectations. Beacon Hotel works extra hard in providing 5-diamond service for all our guests and take pride in delivering an especially clean and fully functional room. Preventive Maintenance is routinely performed in all rooms to ensure these incidents do not occur. I've passed along your message to our Rooms Division Manager to conduct a full investigation into this as this not accepted by our hotel standards. Thanks again for providing this review as it only helps to improve and strengthen our service and standards.

Hello Angela, Thank you for your review and feedback. I'm sorry to hear your stay did not surpass expectations. We always strive to provide 5-diamond service so when I read your review, it seems very unusual. I do apologize for any inconveniences you may have encountered during your stay, including the elevator, which was under maintenance to enhance its performance. I do appreciate your feedback as we use it to enhance and improve our service for future guests. I hope this experience does not dissuade you from staying with us again, as we would hope you enjoy our true Beacon Culture. Thanks again for choosing to have stayed with us.
