Just recently stayed at The Beacon Hotel South Beach Miami for two nights from 3/31-4/2. Overall it was an ok stay. I have to say the staff was great, they were all very friendly, nice, & accommodating.
The good- Location!! Smack in the middle of everything The Beacon sits on Ocean Drive which is directly across the street from the beach. Also left to right of hotel is nothing but bars, restaurants, & nightclubs. Basically if your young or looking to party/being in mix of it all, then The Beacon is a great place... However,
The Bad- Price wise its a bit much, room was allot smaller than what i expected & from Layouts on web. Having paid for an Oceanfront at an higher price i really expected allot more. It was basically a room with an king size bed & tv, thats it. Bathroom was clean & nice but quit small also. It comes down to paying for location & thats it. The downfall about the location is again, this is party central, so if a good nights sleep is a top priority this might not be the place. Having a oceanfront room our window was out to the street where its non stop music, cars, & people. I think the good out weighs all of the bad at this hotel as you do get complimentary breakfast. My conclusion is that i would stay at this hotel again however only for the right price. Just seemed a bit to overpriced for me. Ive stayed in South Beach numerous times & this was probably the most i ever paid. Everything is a bit pricey in south beach & sometimes not worth it, as there are a few hotels that are overpriced rundown, hole-in-the-walls.
