“Very nice and professional staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Our next stay in South Beach will be at Avalon, perfect location on Ocean Drive and Art Deco district. Great seafood restaurant which possibly is one of the few not trying to rip you off on Ocean Drive. Staff was very helpful to find good alternative restaurants.

Room Tip: Ocean Drive is obviously a big party all night - pick a room on the back of the hotel if full night...

This hotel is clean and the location for Ocean Drive Restaurants, heritage buildings, people watching and beach is absolutely perfect. the rooms are obviously dated and no pool but staff is very welcoming and helpful and the restaurant is probably one of the best on the drive.

Like previous reviews, the location can't be beat. What made this hotel stand out was the great service from Jorge, @ the front desk. He made everything possibe for us. From getting us an early check-in, to providing us beach towels and recommending places to eat/getting supplies @ a better value, Jorge was our go-to man for all of our inquiries. We asked for the most quiet room possible, and were given a room @ the back of the hotel. Noise was never an issue. Rooms were on the small side (adequate for 2ppl) but the beds were very comfortable and plush. Cleanliness was as expected and complimentary bottled water was waiting for us in our room. Bathrobes were provided wich I really appreciated. Breakfast was continental and consisted of bagels, cereal, cold-cuts,cheese, orange juice etc, more than enough to start your day! The hotel had no pool or exercise room, but who really needs that when the beach is right across the street. The free wi-fi was fest and reliable. Overall, a good value for what's included in the price. Again, Jorge was amazing and we will return to the Avalon!

A cozy and not big hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are clean and bright. We stayed in a comfortable room with ocean view. Good sound insulation. There were no bothering sounds at night. Very comfortable beds. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant several times: delicious food and good service. At the reception you get full and detailed information about how to rent a car, what places to visit, how to get somewhere. Anna and Jorge from the reception became our good friends! They helped us a lot and we would like to thank them! Also we liked Ruben and liked talking to him!
We liked the atmosphere of the hotel and its location (in Art Deco district, just by the beach). Lots of cafes, shops, and bars nearby. We had a wonderful time there and we plan to return to this hotel next year! Highly recommended!

We arrrived at the avalon hotel to be greeted by a very friendly and helpful fellow behind the check-in counter. If you have any questions just ask and they will try to help you where to eat..what to see.. price of a taxi....you ask and I'm sure that you can have suggestions.....the hotel was clean . Serves a nice breakfast in the morning. and is right across from the beach.

The only thing better than the location was the service. The front desk was more than accommodating. We had an endless supply of clean dry towels to take to the beach. The free breakfast makes this an Evan better value.

The avalon couldn't be in a better location: directly across from the beach and a stone's throw to everything there is to do in South Beach.

The hotel itself is old and the rooms a little small but kept very clean and renovated, it smells great, the bed is comfy, lots of TV channels, coffee, robes, the concierge even called on friday night to see if I needed advice on what to do. It has a certain cozy ambiance that made my boyfriend and I love it.
There's no pool or hot tub.

The only downside is the price: at over $200 a lot of nights you don't get what you would from a $200 hotel most places, but South Beach isn't most places and you should expect to pay double for a hotel of the same quality anywhere else.
