Reviewed July 1, 2013

First time in Miami. Love the Art Deco hotels on the South Beach strip! The Beacon was clean and our room looked over Ocean Drive. Clean and a welcoming AC unit which was fabulous! Great service and attention by staff. Stayed here 2 nights May 2012.

Beacon Hotel on south beach is the description of anyone wanting to see Miami. The rooms are small they are working with refurbished from its early days on the strand. They do not have adequate oulets for anyone needing to recharge anything but the beds are so comfortable you don't move all night. The staff, both night and day shift were extremely helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: If you get an oceanfront room, you will hear the street party along Ocean Drivie all night because t...

This hotel is great and I stay here everytime I come to miami! Not only is the staff great but the hotel is directly across the street! Highly recommended..Yessica was our waitress and she is always great. You get a complimentary breakfast for being a guest, and they have a small gym that you can use. Christian one of the many front desk clerks is also great and can give you directions to any of the hot spots in the city.

This was our first time visiting Miami as well as the Beacon Hotel. The staff was very nice. The first evening after we had been out our TV remote didn't work and the front desk sent someone up 3 times at 3am to make sure the remote worked. Juliana at the front desk was super nice and vey knowledgeable about things to do in Miami. The rooms were very clean and the beds very comfortable. We enjouyed our stay at The Beacon and will be back.

The Beacon was GREAT!!!!!! My boyfriend and I stayed at the Beacon for three nights, and it couldn't have been a better stay.
We stayed on the 5th floor...an oceanview king.....room 504, which gave us the BEST view if all the OD action. The room was VERY clean and spacious. The mini bar isn't expensive at all...$2.00 $3.00 bucks a pop. Complementary beach towells, chairs and umbrellas at the desk. The bed was outstanding. There is no refrigerator, but if you take out the mini bar items you will have room for a few things. Marisa met us our first night, she was quite gracious...Javier we met the next morning, who was also wonderful. The entire Otel staff was great. The complementary breakfast at the hotels resturant is also wonderful. No dry eggs here they have an array of choices.....and the BIG margaritas are made perfectly....(that costs extra) this was my first stay at the Beacon, and I think I will continue to come here for a stay...if you love the South beach action, this is the place for you!!!!!!!!
Thank you for a GREAT Stay Beacon!!!!

First time in Miami, loved this hotel. The location was amazing- South Beach is straight across the road.
Had a few problems with the bathroom and these were sorted instantly. Staff were really helpful and never too busy to help.
Room was clean and spacious, and our towels were raplaced every day. Nice touch offering beach towels, chairs and umbrellas for the beach! We were even offered towels and a cup of tea after we returned soaking from a tropical rainstorm!
The complimentary breakfast was varied,I tried nearly everything ( I'd recommend the pancakes). I would return here in an instant!
