My wife and I and another couple stayed at the Beacon on Monday night. The Beacon was clean, updated, relatively quiet and right across from the beach on Ocean Drive. The location was terrific and the Beach provided chairs and beach towels to take to the beach. The best experience was the staff. Julianna at the front desk was extremely accommodating, answering many questions and providing good advice and many extras. Gus at the door suggested a wonderful seafood restaurant right next door, The Avalon. The reasonable rate was a great value that included breakfast and bottled water. The only hiccup was the restaurant, a separate entity, in front of the hotel where the staff was mediocre. We would absolutely stay here again, assuming the off-season rate was in place.
