5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

My daughters and I stayed July 20th 2015. And the hotel could not be in a better location. The beach is across the street, wet willies is on the corner and mangos is a block away. The restaurant is also very nice and reasonably priced. The staff was very nice and helpful. I hope to stay there again soon.

We checked in for a quick getaway and were pleasantly surprised. The rate we got was very competitive for South Beach about $100 less. So I suggest take a little time to research different sites and apps. Valet parking is $25 per night but finding on street parking is nearly impossible. The staff is extremely accommodating and professional. The rooms... More

The location would be perfect for many. Lots of activity, right across the street from the beach. For us, it was a little hectic. The rooms are a little small. The personnel were extremely accommodating. We had a small issue with our room and they were determined to make things right.

Have stayed here twice over two years and at both times it was a great few days spent. Great value for such a central location, especially with the complimentary breakfast. Will always make efforts to stay here in the future.

This is our second stay at the Beacon. We love this hotel. It's just 300' to the beach. We always select an "ocean view king." Costs more, but it's worth it. (Our rate including tax was $240/night.) It was large and very clean. Amenities were more than normal. Had a mini bar and coffee maker. Beach chairs and robes were... More

This hotel is situated just on "The stip" - the party street in Miami beach. Personally, I would greatly have appreciated to stay here if I were 25 but at an older age not. The hotel has an old tradition among the Art Deco places on South Miami beach, but 75 years have put their marks if you look beyond... More

If you like South Beach, this is a great spot to explore it from. Friendly, helpful staff. Small, but functional and comfortable room. Valet parking does take a lot of time to retrieve your car, but probably a SoBe thing. The included continental breakfast is very basic, but hey it's a free meal.

The hotel is in an amazing location on the strip, opposite the beach. In recognition of that and with the hotel being Art Deco, the rooms are small and the bathrooms are very small. However you aren't staying there for large bathrooms and rooms, it's the location. That said, the rooms are very nice and well decorated and furnished. Plenty... More
