5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

I think the hotel is very good. The best is the comfort to be right in front of the beach. The room was very clean and the attention wonderful specially Ana and a hipster guy on the front desk. All are very kind. If I got the chance to visit Miami again Avalon for sure

We stayed 9 nights at the Avalon. The staff was very friendly, in special, Ana, the soul of this hotel. The restaurant is wonderful, we went 2 nights, a delicious seafood. The room was small but adequate, confortable beds and good shower. The breakfast is good. I recommend this hotel.

We stayed two nights at the Avalon - 10/25/12 - if you are going to visit South Beach you might as well go for a top location - walk to nightlife, the staff was very friendly. Rubin was very
concerned about us getting a table on a busy night, which he did. A delicious seafood dinner
was enjoyed. No complaints. Our room was clean. We then went to the South Seas Hotel
- also was great.

We found the Avalon very comfortable and central to the main art deco strip along Ocean Blvd., right across the street from Lummus Park and the beach. The room was smallish but adequate, comfortable beds and good shower, and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. They really made us feel at home. The European breakfast was a good start to the day and was plenty to last us until lunchtime, saved us quite a bit by not having to buy breakfast in a very pricey city. We were able to walk or take a bus everywhere we wanted to go due to the central location but were never far from "home" when our day was over.

Room Tip: Request a room toward the back of the hotel and on an upper floor as street noise can be an issue at...

Due to Hurricane Sandy I could not fly into New York so changed plans and spent from 30th October till 2nd November at Miami Beach instead! Checked the internet and tried to get into South Seas hotel on a recommendation but they said they had only 2 nights room available but could get me into their sister hotel the Avalon instead! I took this up!
Firstly great location ... it was Halloween and lots a fun along Ocean drive!!
Hotel was a reasonable cost around $450 U.S for the three nights inc breakfast!
Room was clean and spacious and overlooked the Beachfront! Great plus was that there was a small bar fridge in my room! Bed was large and comfortable and hardly any sound from the street drifted up!
Lots of great restaurants to eat all along Ocean Drive and in the surrounding vicinity if you don't want to eat at the hotel! I like to get out and eat all over. Had great Italian nearby!
Also if like mr it is your first time its worth a taxi ride to the Fontainbleu Hotel to have a meal and drink and just see a beautiful, magnificent hotel! Its around a mile away!
Staff at the Avalon were ever so helpful and always a smile on the girls faces at the front reception desk! I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone!

This is a great hotel in the middle of South Beach. After check-out, Ana at the front desk, helped us get to Bayside for our last day of shopping. They were happy to keep our luggage until our 6:00 pm departure. Most of our money went for food & drink, so the breakfast was really appreciated. We had 3 in our room w/2 double beds. It was tight, but the only time we were there was when we were sleeping. Would stay there again....no hesitation!!

This little hotel is situated in a great area and has lots of entertainment around it during the night, as well as the day. At nights the restaurant has great meals to offer and is on Ocean drive where you are set up on the walkway and patio of the hotel. Once seated you enjoy the amazing meal and have a lot of entertainment from the streets.
