“Great Experience!”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Let me just say that my stay at the Avalon was wonderful. The hotel staff was friendly and courteous as well as helpful and accommodating. My friends and I were stuck because our original reservation at another hotel was suddenly cancelled due to overbooking. The reservationist, Camila was so friendly and helpful during a difficult and frustrating moment. Overall, the service was exemplary.

I would not hesitate to stay at the Avalon again.

Jorge made our trip and was so kind and understanding. Thanks, Jorge! We will be keeping in touch and will definitely stay at other hotel properties. We really appreciate Jorge's professionalism and genuine nature. He should be congratulated for his team effort. The location of the hotel could not be better and we could see the beach from our room which was really nice.

I stayed at the Avalon in May 2012 for a week. The rooms were very clean, the location was beyond convenient, and the staff was very friendly. Anna, the front desk lady was excellent!!! she went above and beyond to ensure that our room was well equiped with towels (three girls in one room), knew the "go to spots" in terms of food and nightly activity, and just overall ensured we had anything we needed. I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone. Our package included breakfast only which consisted of hot and cold choices. You really cannot complain for what you get going to this hotel. It is located in the prime of ocean drive just minutes from popular spots like Wet Willies, Mangos, Phat Tuesday and DIRECTLY across the beach.

Having stayed in Miami a couple of times now I found this to be one of the better hotels on Ocean Drive for it's price range. Upon arrival the staff were very eager to help us settle in and during our stay they were very accommodating to all our requests. The room we stayed in was a decent size and pretty comfortable. We were initially nervous about how noisy it might be with it's location but the noise was not a problem at all.

The only things I found unfavourable was the rather tired airconditioner which didn't quite regulate the temperature as well as we'd hoped. Otherwise the breakfast offering was very simple but that wasn't a problem since we were happy with just having the basics.

Room Tip: Room we had at the back (away from the beach front) means our view was compromised however the noise...

We stayed 2 nights at Avalon. The location is great -if you like South Beach- You are in front of the beach so you just cross the street and there you are.

Breakfast was free, this is a plus.

They have free Wi-fi, another plus.

The staff was nice and kind, they give beach towels -free of charge- another plus.

Sleep quality, not so nice, since you hear street music and sounds in your room.

I ordered a package from Amazon, they charged me 5 usd/day, for holding it.

The only negative thing is, we wanted to have a drink in their restaurant, and I especially mentioned that we are hotel guests. Be aware that, South Beach is a very touristic area, and you should avoid all the restaurants and bars on Ocean Drive. So we had 2 drinks -margarita and martini, and paid 40 usd, which is very expensive for me. So just be careful with your drinks and meals.

This hotel has a laid back atmosphere and a great location. We stayed two nights in the sea view room in the corner, which benefitted from two windows. It was brilliant. It is an Art Deco building in the great location. I will stay again when I'm back on the South Beach.

Room Tip: 1st floor sea view room, best to get one in the corner.
