I am a repeat guest at this hotel. Over the last three years I have stayed at least twice a year at the Avalon Hotel - great location - but that is about it. This past week, I brought down 8 friends who all had rooms, we had a terrible stay. It is amazing that I had a similar problem... More

First lets put it into context: 1. A relative booked a room for us in Days Inn for 95/night. Bad, bad, bad. 2. Decided to stop by the Avalon hotel as we walked past at around 10PM. 3. Asked if they had vacancy and decided to try it for a week @ 120/night. 4. We got room 254, non smoking... More

My husband and I just returned from a four day stay at the Avalon. After reading mixed reviews I was unsure of what to expect. Fortunately, I was very impressed with our stay. Our room was cleaned promptly each day. In addition, the complimentary breakfast is an added bonus. The hotel is very reasonably priced, so for the money, I'm... More

I stayed at this hotel in Mid January 2005. First off, there are 2 hotels, the Avalon, and the Majestic. Avalon side is nicer. Both are clean. The rooms are small and there are no frills. The elevator is one of those small, sliding door deals. Very old-fashioned. It's easier to take the stairs, which are enclosed. The whole place... More

Huge Warning....dont stay at this hotel. I had the worst experience here...As soon as we arrived, we wanted to take showers and needed extra towels...It took them 2 hours to give us two towels after harassing us about it telling us that there are already 2 towels in the bathroom. I had to explain to them that my girlfriend and... More

Got a 90$ rate for a 2 double bed room, the rooms are small but not tiny, clean and well kept. Location is PERFECT ! close to all the bars, resturants and clubs. You dont go to south beach to stay at your room !! so this is a good choice.

My wife and I stayed there for two nights prior to geting on a cruise ship Oct 29 & 30, 2004. We had read a couple of reviews prior to visiting and were a bit concerned about some of the complaints of un-caring staff and noise. When we got there we were pleasently surprized by the character the place had.... More

I stayed here in August of this year. We just randomly decided to get a room when staying in Miami and the staff was very helpful from suggesting it at the bar to showing us a room. The room itself is small and does not really look like the pictures you see above, but it was clean. The rooms are... More

I don't really understand some of the criticisms of the hotel. If I remember, when I made the reservation I could choose no ocean view, partial view, etc. and pay accordingly. Of course you have to cross a busy street to get to the beach, the hotel is located on Ocean Boulevard. I'm glad the oceanfront is not disfigured by... More

The Avalon hotel on Ocean Drive in Miami Beach is small, yet well-run and right in the middle of ocean boulevard. Within a short walk is the most beautiful beach South Florida has to offer, excellent night life and restaurants are all lined up and down the same street. The rooms are clean, the bathrooms are exquisitely cleaned and well-stocked... More
