My family enjoyed the service and experience of the Beacon it exceeded our expectations! The rooms where we'll maintained the Concierges were wonderful their attention to detail was immaculate! The Valet set up provided is with easy access to our vehicle and made parking on South Beach painless.

We decided to stay at the Beacon due to its central location in South Beach and its proximity to the beach. The hotel is an old Art Deco building renovated very nicely. If you are expecting a super ritzy hotel this is not the place, but if you want more old school South Beach this is a good choice in... More

Every year we go to South Beach for couple of days. We always stayed at The Park Central hotel and thought it was great. But this year we tried the Beacon and found it even better. We took a "ocean view" room (in SB non-view rooms tend to look out at the building next door.) It was large & well... More

Having been in the business I almost never give 5 circles. They earned it here . It is located in the heart of the Art Deco district , like you see on TV. In the heart of all action and restaurants and directly across from the beach. If you come by car $20 daily in/out included which is cheap, 15-20... More

My new wife and I spent the first few nights of our honeymoon at The Beacon and loved every minute of it. The hotel is located in the Art Deco area on the south side of Ocean Drive and is perfectly situated for walking to most South Beach attractions. The hotel staff were all excellent. From the table clearers and... More

Great stay. Staff were very helpful, the room I stayed in was clean and comfortable. The only thing that let it down was the noise of the a/c whilst sleeping, turn it off and its to hot. All in all a very memorable stay.

The hotel is lovely. It suits your needs for convenience to stay close to beach! The room was very clean. A small bathroom but you don't really stay in your room anyways when you're on South Beach! It is close to everything. I booked a summer special where my valet parking was free, that was great because normal valet is... More

How lovely is this motel - art deco outside and in the foyer. We stayed in a King room - arrived after a long flight from LA - the room was ready and already cooled down! The beach towels and chairs were in the room ready to go. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The counter staff were polite and... More
