“Nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014 via mobile

Great stay. Staff were very helpful, the room I stayed in was clean and comfortable. The only thing that let it down was the noise of the a/c whilst sleeping, turn it off and its to hot. All in all a very memorable stay.

The hotel is lovely. It suits your needs for convenience to stay close to beach! The room was very clean. A small bathroom but you don't really stay in your room anyways when you're on South Beach! It is close to everything. I booked a summer special where my valet parking was free, that was great because normal valet is $20 per day. They also offer a complimentary breakfast which i thought was very good, decent selection.

How lovely is this motel - art deco outside and in the foyer.
We stayed in a King room - arrived after a long flight from LA - the room was ready and already cooled down! The beach towels and chairs were in the room ready to go.
The rooms were clean and comfortable. The counter staff were polite and ready to help.
The location is fantastic - 2 minutes and you're in the water; 5 minutes up the road and there are clubs, restaurants and even the occasional drag queen stopping traffic! (just think The Birdcage - which was filmed just up the road).

Visited the Beacon Hotel while on Ocean Drive one evening with the family and decided to have a meal out on the terrace. We sat right next to the infamous stairs where Scarface was shot, you know the scene when he goes up the stairs to meet a guy with a chainsaw. Anyways the stairs are right in between Johnny Rockets and Beacon Hotel for you Scarface fans. The service was great they really took care of us, the waitress was so friendly and really attentive. Nothing was a bother, the food was very tasty indeed al lot better than some others I tried on Ocean Drive. The hotel is lovely Art Deco era it is very clean and charming.

I just visited South Beach with a couple of my friends for my birthday and we chose to stay at the Beacon. It's a cute boutique hotel right across from the beach. Its right within walking distance of almost everything. The staff was SO friendly and accommodating. We got there way before check in time but we were still able to eat the complimentary breakfast which was really good. They had also allowed us to change into our swimsuits, stored our luggage and they gave us beach chairs and towels so we can go to the beach while we waited on our room. Once we got to our room it was small but clean with plenty of room for the 3 of us. The entire stay was really nice and Julio, who I believe was the valet, was awesome. I would definitely stay here again!

We stayed here two nights in August 2014. Ocean Drive was very busy when we arrived and we had to drive around the block a couple times before there was space to pull in to unload our luggage and give the car to valet. As soon as the valet guy realized we were checking into the hotel, the service he provided us was absolutely excellent. Checking in was quick and the guys at the front desk were also excellent.

The hotel provides folding chairs and towels to take to the beach, which is just across the street. The complimentary breakfast was excellent. The room was very clean and complimentary lemonade and coffee were provided nearby. The price was very reasonable compared to other hotels in the area.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel are noisy in the morning with garbage trucks and construction across...
