It was awesome being able to walk across the road to South Beach! The Beacon Hotel staff were very helpful and i enjoyed using the fitness center. The breakfast provided was good - it was nice having a complimentary breakfast that wasn't a buffet for a change. I would not recommend the restaurant for dinner however as the chicken in the salad i ordered was very dry and none of the drink prices are advertised. We unwittingly ordered a $11 beer and $25 cocktail.

Being my first trip to Miami, I had no idea of where to live and what hotels that were good. I just chose Beacon based on location and pictures + price, it looked okay and the price was reasonable. I later found out that it was located on Ocean Drive, and that I probably would have trouble sleeping due to high music, lights and cars. And my first impression was excatly that - we arrived late on a Saturday night, and they music was loud and it was crowded with cars and people everywhere - but it turned out to be anything but. Our room was located in the back (no nice view - but as long as I got my sleep) - and we were not bothered by the music at all, in fact we didn't hear a thing. The beds were huge and very comfortable. Room size is okay (I don't mind the smaller hotel rooms at all), but the bathroom could have been a little larger. Clean + nice staff. Valet parking also worked good and the location was nice (right next to the beach + other facilities). I wouldn't mind going back.

The hotel itself was of a good standard for an overnight stay in South Beach. The rooms were clean, comfy and the complimentary beach towels and chairs were a really nice touch. In short we felt that the hotel staff really cared about our stay.

However, the whole enjoyment of our stay was ruined by being scammed from The Place restaurant (please read our separate review) which adjoins The Beacon Hotel. We complained to reception about The Place only to be told that they were not affiliated to the restaurant and were not interested. If you look at The Beacon Hotel's website, there appears to be heavy promotion and endorsement of The Place. You can judge for yourselves, but in our opinion, there is a close link between The Beacon and The Place which is conveniently forgotten when a customer objects to being ripped off.

One might say that The Beacon, by its glowing endorsement of The Place through its website, serves up unsuspecting tourists ready to be taken.

By association, therefore, we cannot recommend The Beacon unless you avoid The Place at all costs. Judging by the number of terrible reviews for The Place on TA and the amount of reviewers that start their review with "We were styling at The Beacon" perhaps if more people start judging te hotel as we have will result in management at The Beacon taking action in the interests of their customers.

In the heart of South Beach. Rooms were small and bathrooms were smallest I have ever seen. Staff was very accommodating and helpfull. Valet parking was 20 a day and it took 45 min to retrieve car on a lazy Sunday morning. Included breakfast at on site restaurant overlooking Ocean Blvd was exceptional. All tour buses stop at entrance to point out that hotel was site of a Scar face murder scene. Saturday eve entertainment included a terrific castinet playing flamenco dancer to the tune of Cuban music. Very entertaining.

We booked a two bed room via Priceline but the hotel said its not for four people, thats why we had to upgrade 30$/person/day
Rooms are really small, no fan in the bathroom. Hotel has nice and good restaurant and good looking lobby, but rooms are disappointing.
Maybe the price is ok for best location in Miami Beach, but in other areas you would get much more for your money!

We spent 5 nights at beacon hotel in august. What a room. Nice with confort no noise. The breakfast was also very good. All the staff very nice and friendly . Everything we need they got. They provide beach and towels to the beach that is just in front. You have everything around, shopping, supermarket and buses.
I must thank Gus for all he provided for us. I will be back and tell all my collegues what a Hotel they can find in Miami beach.

The hotel is very nice and the staff is awsome, they treated us very well. You get beach chairs and towels for the super beach. Cant say enough, restaurant food is good but wait staff not very friendly. We had the cruise special, they took us to the ship on cruise day. We had a room right up front, nice view a little loud but worth the experience.
