Beacon Hotel South Beach

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The beacon is a great location. The free breakfast is the same each morning but you get your belly full for free. It was great. Would stay again.

We had a stroller and although it was wheelchair accessible the elevator and rooms are a little small so it was difficult to get through, but when you’re staying on Ocean drive you’re really not going to get much bigger rooms anywhere else without paying a lot more. But the whole area of Miami is not kid friendly. The staff was very pleasant, and our room was comfortable. There is no pool, but the beach is right across the street.

Clean and comfortable room and bed, the espresso machine is useful and the mini bar pricing is amazingly reasonable. Breakfast is was good with warm food and experience eating watching Ocean drive. The 2dm floor complimentary coffees area comes handy. Staff is extremely friendly. Great value for the price and location.

The beds are awesome! You can have a good night sleep!

Quaint, convenient Would have liked more coffee in the room. Air conditioner was a little loud, but overall it was GREAT!

The location was great, but that was it. The door lock broke and the staff were unable to fix it. The air conditioner cover broke and was left unrepaired. A server bumped into my wife and knocked her over. On my last night I couldn’t leave my room because the door wouldn’t lock. They didn’t offer us anything - not even another room! I can’t recommend this place.

Easy Check in. Nice and helpful staff. Clean rooms. Awesome shampoo and conditioner. Espresso machine is a nice touch

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
