no sleep this is the place for you, Ocean Drive too much noise from the crowds all night long,close to bars and shopping and theatres and arena close by. If you want to party this is for you. Walk across the road to the beach, nice view from 306 but really small room, musty smelling and they perfume the halls...

Just stayed at the Avalon, the staff is wonderful and accommodating especially Edith, Ana and Jorge. The hotel is clean, beds are very comfortable, the air conditioning is more than sufficient, the water pressure in the shower exceeds most hotel, the continental breakfast was very good. The location was perfect. Will definately stay there again. GREAT STAY IN SOUTH BEACH.......

Finding a reasonable and friendly hotel in South Beach is not an easy thing to do. Most seem not to care if you stay with them or not, charge ridiculous resort fees on top of room rates, and don't include breakfast. A notable exception is the Avalon. It would be hard to say enough good things about this place. No...

Evidently they spent much more on their website than they invest in the rooms. The hotel is cute on the outside and the lobby/restaurant area is nice enough. However the rooms have not been updated in a long time, the carpet is dirty and doesn't reach the baseboards in some places. There are scuffs on the walls and the furniture...

We had two rooms at the Avalon and upon arrival were initially slightly disappointed, but quickly learned that what this hotel lacks in basics it more than makes up for in personality and location. Let me start by saying that when we came in I was incredibly impressed with Ana at the front desk. I read a previous review saying...

The hotel accommodations, cleanliness and general state of repair were average. The location is great if your interest is the beach by day and the strip by night. They had no crib in the hotel (yes, we went there with kids, but Miami Beach was not the primary destination of our trip, just a diversion). The staff was friendly and...

A couple friends and I drive from Orlando to Miami for a night so we thought to get the whole effect, we should stay in/close to the Art Deco area of Miami Beach. First of all, I was NOT a fan of the area, it was dirty, run down, and just really cheesy. I guess if that's what you're expecting,...
