“Perfection at the beach”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Beacon is in the best location ever. The staff was wonderful, especially Juan Carlos, he was so friendly and attentive. Our stay wouldn't have been as great without him! Definitely the best hotel on the strip.

The hotel was well maintained and clean. It is definitely worth the price. The room was spacious and the staff was friendly and accommodating. We arrived early and was unable to check in but they held our luggage and gave us a coupon for a free breakfast in the restaurant. They called us letting us know our room was ready and took our luggage to our room. I will definitely stay at this hotel again and highly recommend it to anyone!

Hubby and I just returned from a three day stay here and we loved it! The rooms were smaller than what we expected but once we settled in, we appreciated the cozy and quaintness of it. It was really clean, nice and very cozy for us as a couple. I found the bathroom to be small but again I appreciated the difference and quaintness of it. The hotel staff are very friendly and the energy of the hotel was great. The location is perfect and we enjoyed being able to walk to view south beach attractions. The complementary breakfast was great and just what we needed to start our day.

I had the best time at the beach and just sitting having a drink watching the people and cars from our hotel was very cool. We loved being able to just walk straight down Ocean Drive and visit other hotels and restaurants and see people enjoying themselves. I can't remember the name of the gentleman at the front desk upon our departure at 5 a.m. Sunday morning but he was very friendly and carried our bags down, I believe the managers name is Derek who was there when we arrived, also very nice. I have nothing negative to say about my stay at the Beacon. We will surely return for another stay! The Beacon got it right!

The only bad thing about our trip is we missed our 7:15 a.m. flight from Chicago and had to go standby on another flight. We ended up going to New Orleans with a 4 hour layover. We did not arrive to south beach until 10:45 p.m. We were told it rained the whole day on Thursday so we didn't feel bad about losing a whole day!

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights and found the hotel to be very nice. The rooms are clean, the staff was friendly, the bed was comforatble and even the free breakfast was good. If you want to stay in the heart of South Beach, this is a great location. They do not have a pool but they do give you beach chairs/towels and the beach is just across the street. The hotel is in a great location to people watch. We did not have an ocean view room but I was fine with that since it was much quieter on the back side of the hotel.

Room Tip: Don't select an ocean view room if you are looking for peace and quiet.

I stayed at this hotel after a cruise the first part of May. It was wonderful. The staff was absolutely wonderful. We checked in early, got beach chairs and towels to go to the beach. When we told the front desk, our flight was very late on the next day, they had open rooms, so we did not have to check out until 2:00 p m the next day. The free breakfast was way more than expected too. I will definitely stay here again.

I stayed here with 7 guys for a bachelor party weekend August 8-11, 2013. Most of us used the Groupon that included free valet parking, which proved to be very helpful in South Beach. The room rates were still quite reasonable for those of us who didn't use the Groupon, however. Check-in was very smooth, and they were very helpful holding our bags for 4 hours after checkout prior to driving back to the airport. The rooms were on the small side, but they were appointed quite nicely for South Beach. I've stayed in a few different hotels in South Beach, and this is the first one that I'd be happy to stay in again.

The free towels and beach chairs proved to be quite handy during our stay, and the location couldn't be better for people-watching. The included brunch was delicious, and our servers were quite attentive despite our "free brunch" status. Despite all of the noise on the street, our room was very quiet and removed from the action for when we needed some downtime. Our friends on the first floor got basically no cell service, so I would stay on floors 2-4 if I had a choice about it (was on the 2nd floor this trip).

Would definitely stay again!
