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

Visited the Beacon Hotel while on Ocean Drive one evening with the family and decided to have a meal out on the terrace. We sat right next to the infamous stairs where Scarface was shot, you know the scene when he goes up the stairs to meet a guy with a chainsaw. Anyways the stairs are right in between Johnny... More

I just visited South Beach with a couple of my friends for my birthday and we chose to stay at the Beacon. It's a cute boutique hotel right across from the beach. Its right within walking distance of almost everything. The staff was SO friendly and accommodating. We got there way before check in time but we were still able... More

We stayed here two nights in August 2014. Ocean Drive was very busy when we arrived and we had to drive around the block a couple times before there was space to pull in to unload our luggage and give the car to valet. As soon as the valet guy realized we were checking into the hotel, the service he... More

If you are coming to Miami Beach to enjoy the sun, waves and almost-naked people on the beach you will find this right in front of the hotel. Likewise, if you enjoy drinking, dancing and entertainment all night then you will find this within a ten minute walk of the hotel. There is a restaurant and bar at the hotel... More

Stayed at the Beacon in South Beach for a week with my husband to attend an advanced training course. The location was perfect. Directly across the street from the ocean, along a strip of art-deco hotels and an array of restaurants. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful and they always had a smile on their faces and welcomed... More
