The rooms are small, but if you just need a place to rest your head and shower than this will work. We stayed on the strip and didn't spend too much time in the room. The breakfast they give is OK but could be better. The boiled eggs were freezing cold. They don't offer any other type of eggs or... More

Stayed at Avalon Majestic on Ocean Ave. South Beach Miami 20 January-23 January 2006. After checking in and going to room, discovered there is no information in room relative to where to go, what hotel offers in amenities, nothing about ability to use facilities at their sister hotel South Seas; asked reception for this info and they had none; there...

Ok I had read a ton of reviews on this place and I didnt think any of them were too helpful. When you are staying in south beach you are there to party and go to the beach right? Well this place served its purpose. The rooms were basic, nothing special, two beds and a bathroom. The one advantage to... More

I stayed at The Avalon with my fiance in September of this year for our anniversary. He lives in Miami and I live about two hours north, so splurging on a hotel was not our main concern. We wanted a simple night away from the noise of the household in order to enjoy ourselves. Although the rooms are pretty small,... More

Man, this hotel is trouble. The staff is very rude and unpolite. If you have a car, then the problem starts - the valet is never there to park or get your car, you cannot park to unload your baggage... NEVER GO TO THIS HOTEL WITH A CAR!! Be careful with the annex of the Hotel, which has no doorman!... More

I was a little worried about this place after reading reviews, but it's not bad for the money. It does not look like the pics on the website, it is very small. It's hard to maneuver a large suitcase in the double room. When we arrived, there was no one at the front desk. Someone had to go get her... More

I get the chance to come to South Beach several times a year and like to try different hotels. The one thing I have learned is that the internet ratings of South Beach hotels have very little basis in reality. Generally hotels in this area are 1-2 stars below their rating and the rooms are all priced higher than what... More

I stayed at the avalon for 3 nights for my bachlorette party. I spent most of my time at a friend's condo and used the hotel as a place to sleep. I came home on the 3rd night to find that housekeeping had thrown out all my things -- my toiletries, pajamas. they assumed (god knows why) that I had... More

I have stayed at his hotel many times over the last ten years and generally have had a good experience. I always, ALWAYSs stay in the rooms located on Ocean, Drive. If you do not then the experience is painful and you feel ripped off. The hotel location is great, the staff generally friendly, and the restaurant is very good... More

The Avalon (smoking building) and Majestic (non-smoking) are owned by the same company. Upon arriving (5:00p.m.) I was told that my room was not ready for check-in (3:00). If you have put in a long day of travel, then this would not be what you want to walk in to at the end of the day. I had reserved a... More
