“Clean hotel, friendly staff, excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

One of my girlfriends and I stayed here June 2-8, 2013 and loved it. First and foremost, the hotel was always clean. The staff were so friendly and the food was fantastic. It was the perfect location, right across from the beach and right on Ocean where all the action is. The hotel provides clean beach towels each day and beach chairs in each room. There is also a company on the beach that rents lounge chairs, umbrellas, or cabanas by the day if you would prefer that.

The room was clean, beds were so comfortable, and very cold AC for when you come in off the beach.

It was a fantastic place to stay. We will probably return there again next year. The only reason we wouldn't would be to just explore and try a different hotel. However, there is a great possibility that another hotel would not be able to match the experience we had at the Beacon Hotel. Thanks for a memorable week!!!

Excellent location on Ocean Drive right in the middle of all the action. You can enjoy a vacation by just sitting at the terrace restaurant and watching the parade of folks up and down the sidewalk. The staff was responsive and very friendly. I was made to feel really welcome. I had an oceanfront King room which was nice but you have to put up with the street noise at night. However, I didn't mind because it was a trade off for the location.

Room Tip: If quiet is what you want, don't select oceanfront.

This is our second time staying at this hotel which is located right across from the beach. They give u a pass for free breakfast during ur stay n it's pretty good however when we sat on the sidewalk , more than one homeless person asked my boyfriend if he had spare change so sit up on the balcony to be undisturbed. The rooms r small but clean and comfortable for two people. Only dislike is that we arrived at 1 and the staff said he would quickly find us a room however we waited in the lobby until 3 o clock where I had to remind him we still waiting even though he promised to call us to let us know a room was ready. Would stay here again because of price , location and free breakfast. Also they let u use computers n print out anything at no additional cost.

The Beacon was definately a great stay. We were only there 3 nights but everthing was perfect. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were very clean. Another great thing was the location. We could walk everywhere because it was right on the strip. I would stay there again for my next trip!

Very friendly staff, specially front desk. Rooms are smaller so are bathroom, but I was expecting it as location and real estate. Breakfast was included and was good. Location is excellent and right across from beach. We had two beach chair and towels in the room(FREE).

Room Tip: On higher floor

I was very impressed upon arriving. The staff was very friendly and helpful especially Javier. He was a breath of fresh air ladies lol. The rooms were on the small side but very clean and modern. The food was excellent, especially the free breakfast. The happy hour drinks were great and at a reasonable price. The Beacon is located in a great place on the strip. No need for a car or taxi. Everything was in walking distance. I will definitely be staying here again.

We stayed one night at the Beacon Hotel after our wonderful trip to Galapagos and Quito. We knew it was Memorial Weekend (we were there Monday night - Tuesday), but nothing prepared us for the 'walking show' of people that went on for hours! The hotel staff were excellent, nothing was too much trouble. The owner/manager (?) moved us to an ocean view room after we had talked with the staff about the noise coming from the large room next to us on the 5th floor before they went out for the night. We appreciated that it was Memorial Weekend, but also needed sleep. No problem, we were given a corner room on the 4th floor, which had great views for people watching. Great bed, super comfy pillows (which is so important) and although the a/c was noisy, we had a good sleep.

We had dinner at the restaurant attached to the hotel, which was fine. Only complaint - no prices on the drinks menu, which was not good. Breakfast was OK, other people's plates looked good, but my poached eggs were not, which was a shame. All in all a great hotel on Miami Beach, which is an amazing place.

The Beacon is a really attractively furnished 'Art Deco' hotel, both inside and out. Would recommend staying here if you plan to go to Sobe
