“Amazingly hospitable staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

I will definitely be coming back to this hotel BECAUSE of he staff. Anna and George and Carlos (and others whose names I did not get) were so incredibly friendly and accommodating that I will definitely be back. Rooms were clean, beds comfortable and wonderful location right on Ocean Drive. Thanks for making our stay so great!! Bill

Stayed at the hotel Avalon for a quick getaway. The location was perfect, cost was reasonable and staff was extremely friendly especially Ana.

The restaurant has an incredible chef ( chef Kal) and the food was excellent. the wait staff was also very nice (thank you Christopher )

I would encourage everyone to book your stay here you will not regret it.

I visited with my Girl Friend stay for a week in South Beach. The room seem a bit small and not so much other then a place to sleep. We were out all day at the beach and hit up the bars and clubs by nite. I think next time I will spend more money for a better hotel. But yes the location was great I mean the first time I didn't have to rent a car while I was in another state. Everything was so close to me other then the Airport...

Visited with my husband & our 2 daughters (tween & teen). Our room was in the rear, just over the kitchen, which was very noisy (pots & pans, dishes clang, silverware, etc) in the later hours (10 pm) when we were trying to sleep. The head shop across the street was very loud, as was the music from the restaurant across the street. Crank the ac a bit to cover the noise & snuggle!

Love the hotel charm! Great location, exceptional staff! If I were of the jet set & in to the night life, this would be an exceptional location!

First things first: Me and some friends decided to stay at this hotel since it was right on the strip and it was pretty inexpensive compared to some of the other hotels on the strip. Let me first say the location is perfect. But it wasn’t the location that made the hotel perfect it was the guy at the front desk, Jorge. Once we got to the hotel we were greeted by Jorge and let me tell you, he was a ball of personality. He treated us like we were celebrities. Each day he had a smile on his face and directed to anything we needed.
Rooms: The rooms were a decent size. We always had fresh towels, clean beds , extra blankets and pillows anytime we asked. The maid was an older Trinidad woman with a wonderful accent. She was sweet and helped make our stay here even more comfortable. I’ve stayed at a lot of hotels and for the most part and as long as the room and the hotel are clean, they’re all the same. What made this hotel special is the people that worked there. My cousin and friends all agree, we'll be staying here each year and it’s all because of Jorge. The way he greeted us, answered our questions, pointed us in the right direction. That alone has us hooked. Good customer service is hard to come by, and great customer service is even harder, but the Avalon hotel showed us that great customer service still exists. Each staff member treats the hotel like it’s their home and they make everyone feel right at home. We stayed at the Marriott the year before and didn’t get half as much quality service that we got from the Avalon. All in all the customer service here makes it a 5 star hotel!!!! Ill definitely be back!

The hotel is right in the middle of the Art Deco area and the beach is right across the street. You really can't beat the location. The valet will park your car and retrieve it for you. Be aware the daily parking fee is 25+ per day. The hotel is very nice, the staff was great. The room was nice but Room 116 is right next to the kitchen and the street, so if you expecting to get any sleep, forget it, unless you use earplugs and turn on the AC. I expect the other rooms might have been a bit better, but for the price, it kind of sucked. But again, if you want to be in the middle of it all, its great place, just be picky about the expectations of your room location.

Room Tip: There is no swimming pool or fitness center at this hotel.
