Good location on the Ocean Drive, but be aware that the party factor is high in this street. Although booking a premium room, we were placed in what appears to be the smallest room on the fifth floor. We have yet to see the daily complementary cocktails promised in the booking.

I stayed at the Beacon the weekend of June 19th. I will start by saying they have the best staff I have ever encountered. The wait staff at restaurant were awesome and the food was great as well. The room was sufficient and the hotel is centrally located. One con that I have to report is that my credit card... More

Found this hotel by reading reviews on tripadvisor as we wanted to stay central in South Beach, with walking distance up and down Ocean Drive. It only takes a few minutes to walk each block, so when looking at map location I initially thought it was way down the strip and miles away from 'everything'.Really glad I booked as it... More

Every thing was great. The entire staff takes excellent care of their customers. They were very polite and helpful. If we needed anything from beach towels to leaving our luggage to walk around before and after check in- we were accommodated. They serve complimentary breakfast which is wonderful. They are also in walking distance to everything on the strip on... More

This Beacon is in a wonderful location. The staff and service are over the top. From the time that I made the reservation and checked out everything was perfect. The rooms were clean, the staff went above and over the top to make sure that my stay was enjoyable and comfortable. I was in the center location for the things... More

We liked the central position of the hotel - although a very old building, everything was very well maintained. The room was big enough and comfortable. The wifi connection was good. The bed was comfortable. We liked very much that they offered complementary beach towels and chairs to use while staying at the hotel. There was free coffee in the... More

Nice building, rooms are nice. Bathroom was very small. Great staff. Nice Free Breakfast but stupid that it doesn't start until 9am. Didn't want to pay the extra money for an ocean view room. Really didn't spend much time in the room so I didn't miss it.

I would always stay here when I visit South Beach. Compared with some of the huge hotels in downtown, The Beacon is charming - relatively low rise, and right on Ocean Drive where it is all happening. The ocean is a couple of minutes away across the road, with a wonderful sandy beach. Rooms are on the small side, but... More

We stayed at the beacon for two nights and really enjoyed the stay. The staff are friendly and always accomidating, room was small but I think typical of Miami ocean drive hotels and even then still had enough room for the four of us. The breakfast was fantastic, they call it continental but it's not it's a full egg, bacon... More
