Stayed for three nights in December. Checked in by Gus, who was wonderful! Asked for a room away from Ocean Dr ( to get away from the music.) Our king room was somewhat small but well decorated. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was small but had large walkin shower. We were in a room facing an alley (217) and were awakened... More

This was our 3d time in the Beacon (2011, Jan. 2013 and now). Very good again: the staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are unsophisticated and trendy and there are a lot oft "small" useful details like beach towels, beach chair and a safe. Ask for a quiet room (5th floor, far away friom noisy street and elevator).... More

This was our second trip to South Beach, but our first stay at the Beacon. Naturally due to the location, it is not especially "inexpensive." However, we wanted the location most of all, as there is no need for rental cars, etc as everything is within walking distance. (We flew in to Ft Lauderdale and took a taxi which, with... More

We enjoyed our staying in Beacon so much, even if we couldn't sleep a lot due to loud music coming from the street, and also due to noises coming from the aisle on our floor during the night. We' ve been told it was the laundry activity. Beside that, room always clean, breakfast ok and receptionists very kind and professional.... More

All hotels in south beach are rough.. This is one of the better ones. The staff is generally unfriendly and the valet manager is really crappy, but your only other choice if you want to stay on the beach is going to be much more run down. The beds are comfortable, though I didn't like the opaque glass bathroom doors... More

This is a no-frills hotel that has everything you need & then some. Location is perfect. Complimentary breakfast was great for a weekend stay. Staff was helpful and friendly. Room and bathroom were small, simple, and clean. I would certainly stay here again. Really enjoyed our stay!

Really enjoyed the hotel. Like most Art Deco hotels, everything is scaled to a smaller size than a modern hotel, the hallways are a little convoluted and the overall look isn't perfectly slick. But that's also the great charm of The Beacon. You see history and beauty in places like this. The staff was VERY NICE, from the front desk... More

Nice Hotel right on the beach. Room and bath was a tad bit small but clean. Wonderful friendly staff. The free punch and breakfast daily was a nice touch. Loved the lil espresso machine in the room! I didn't love the view of the building next door from my window!

Stayed on SoBe for 3 nights celebrating the Wife's b-day. We decided to give The Beacon a try and were so glad we did. From the moment we arrived the staff were helpful without being overwhelming. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet despite being barely off the lobby on the second floor. No street noise which can be an... More

you don't ever open your curtains. The windows are absolutely filthy, and your room may be four feet from the wall of an adjacent building. No light and no air. Aside from that, the room was very nicely furnished, new and modern...and clean. Small to be sure, but adequate. Wonderful staff, very friendly all around. Terrific buffet breakfast served right...
