“Better than expected!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Top notch staff, very helpful and friendly. Perfect location, nice decor and accomodations. I will definitely recommend to others and will definitely be a return customer. Sorry I didn't try the restaurant "A Fish Called Avalon."

Great location, and great service. George, the front desk man, as mentioned by others, was brilliant. I don't think I've ever come across someone who works so hard at being helpful to guests. Top tips on bars and places to go plus equally-valuable warnings about rip-offs, were all invaluable. Raining? George will give you his umbrella. Brilliant all-round Mr Fix-it, and he seems to enjoy every minute.

The rooms, if not the biggest, are decent for the price (we paid £258/$400 for three nights) and a buffet breakfast is included.

A general Miami Beach warning for hire car drivers like us: try not to take your car. You probably wont need it and there's no getting round valet parking charges averaging $29, which are a pain. Not a crictism of The Avalon, as this seems to be the case everywhere in the area. We should have left the car at the airport and got a taxi in.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are cheapest - and the noisiest!

A friend and I stayed at the Avalon Hotel this past weekend. We chose it because of two attributes: Ocean view rooms & rooms with two beds. The hotel location and the room itself couldn't have been better - it's a historic hotel so the rooms and the bathrooms are modest size but still spacious. We were fortunate to be in a corner room so two different views of the action below. But what really sets this hotel apart is the customer service. Top notch all around. I'd especially like to recognize Ana and Jorge for their very generous hospitality.

Nice, clean and best location. Across from the beach, Know one bothering you to eat there, peaceful , loved it and they include breakfest. Everything was perfect. Sit back and relax.They had valet parking so no worries about parking. Close to everything you may need. They also provide towels for beach. Easy check in. and we checked in early with no problem.

My wife and I stayed at the Avalon over the September long weekend, and we were happy with the location and the service we received. As far as location, the Avalon is right in the mix of south beach activities, and at night I honestly didn't notice the noise outside. As for service, George at the front desk was exceptional very helpful for anything we needed and made our stay at the Avalon even more pleasant.

great little hotel at a reasonable price. Good size rooms, clean and nice friendly staff. All round a good bet if you want to be in the centre of things on Ocean Drive.

Have to recommend the attached Restaurant also, food was fresh, tasty and big portions!

Room Tip: ask for one not at the front of the hotel to stay clear of noise

Great spot, close to all the action. Rooms dated, but adequate and spotlessly clean which we value most of all. Aircon was a little noisy, but so is my friends snoring and we weren't in the rooms much as the nightlife is amazing even just a short stroll down Ocean drive. Breakfast included wont win awards, but was ok and made us look forward to lunch. Staff were superb and friendly. I'd stay there again due to location, helpful staff and clean rooms.
