“Perfect location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

I stayed in the hotel for a week and I am glad I did it. The hotel is in front of the beach close to everything, perfect for a person traveling alone. They offer a continental breakfast, which compared to the same category of other hotels is pretty decent. My room was simple but at the back, number 224, which allowed me to sleep very well away from the noise of the Ocean Drive. The people at the front, Jorge, Ana and Ruben treated me very kindly. I tried the restaurant one night and although a little expensive, it was worth it!

Room Tip: The rooms at the back are more silent that the ones at the front on Ocean Drive.

I went to Miami with my boyfriend for 4th of July this year. It was his first time, so we opted to stay on South Beach. We ended up with Avalon Hotel through Hotwire, which was listed as a 3.5 or 4 star. The hotel is nothing to write home about: it's very old and shows clear signs of use. It certainly was not my ideal location. I'm more accustomed to updated, newer furnishings. To be an older establishment, it was maintained as well as possible. Front desk attendant Ana and another man who's name escapes me were phenomenal. They really understand the concept of great customer service. Location of the hotel is great if you're really looking for South Beach action. Unfortunately, I was looking for more relaxation so music blaring at 2am and loud, drunken screams outside of my window was not ideal. This was of no fault of the actual hotel. All in all, I would not stay at this hotel again b/c it was a little old for me, but I would definitely recommend it to someone who isn't concerned about that. The customer service alone gets it a gold star in my book.

Clean and friendly. Rooms are a little small but very comfortable. Only down side was the noisy air con. Great location on the beach front and beside an endless choice of restaurants. The hotel restaurant looked nice but seemed a little pricey. However, most eateries on the beach front were quite expensive. If back in Miami would definitely stay at this hotel again.

I was very skeptical about my stay here due to some reviews, but I must say I appreciated the hospitality that was given. The rooms are kind of old , but it was very clean. The staff was a very friendly and helpful, Ana was the best at making sure our stay was comfortable and giving us VIP passes to local clubs.I will definitely stay at the avalon again

I very much enjoyed staying at the Avalon. The staff was friendly and helpful and the view from the hotel is marvelous!

The only bad thing that I can say was that the room was a bit small, but that's nothing really that bad considering the age of the hotel.

Would definitely stay here again!

Great service and a pretty good room. The beds are comfortable and the weeknight rates are pretty good. They are very accommodating and helped me find great attractions and tours. The concierg. Was vvery friendly and signed me up for a tour that leaves Avalon as well as suggested I try Groupon for deals.
