We were three friends from Norway, starting our East Coast road trip in Miami, and Beacon Hotel was our first stop, where we spent a few days, just to get used to the USA. Everything was perfect: the service, location, the rooms, the breakfast!

In the heart of the Deco district, the Beacon offers a quiet, unique rooms that are ice cold nestled along Ocean drive. Minutes from Lincoln road shopping district and looking out on Miami beach.

From the moment we pulled up to the valet to the time we left we felt like we were personally welcomed. Even though there are five floors of guests, we were always welcomed by our names. We requested a room with a view and received room 504. It had a view of the park, palm trees, and we could see... More

This is my first ever trip advisor review and I felt compelled to make it. I stayed in the Beacon from 14-21 July 2014 with my friend. In my view this is the best hotel on Ocean Drive. It is directly opposite the beach and stands out from the other hotels. The rooms and bathrooms are kept spotlessly clean and... More

This hotel was in a great location, right in the center of Ocean Drive. The staff was very hospitable and friendly from the time we checked in until we checked out. My friends and I were there for my bachelorette trip and the front desk staff made sure we had a good time and provided us with party passes. The... More

My husband and I, and our friends spent a few nights here while travelling around Florida. We had a great stay! We loved the location, the "style" of the hotel and the price. The rooms were small, as others have mentioned, but that seems to be the norm on South Beach. The bathroom doors were a little strange but not... More

Great location; great staff. The breakfast was included (delicious deal) and free Wi-Fi. The beach chairs were an added convenience too. The rooms are small, but what do you expect to have on Ocean Drive?

I booked The Beacon for a 2-day getaway for my husband and I for his birthday. I chose this hotel because I wanted a boutique hotel on South Beach. They had good reviews and also offered free breakfast. When I made the reservation through the hotel's website, I mentioned that it was my husband's birthday. We received a comp upgrade... More
