Very nice hotel. Great proximity to the beach which makes up for not having a pool

I worried about staying on the strip with noise. Ocean drive is where you party! This hotel has a policy of quiet after 11pm so once you’re done and you go to sleep you hear nothing! Solid walls and comfortable beds!

Very close to the beach, right on the strip.

The room is very small, but comfortable. Being right on the strip, there was no parking, other than valet at $30 per day.

Hello Tim, Thank you for taking the time to post a review and provide feedback. I hope you were able to at least enjoy your time while in South Beach. Regarding our parking, Beacon offers valet parking available 24 hours a day for $30/night. You will find this to be one of the most convenient and affordable methods of parking on Ocean Drive. There are other options such as metered parking and garage parking, but they're first come, first serve, and prices vary. I again want to thank you for choosing to stay with us and hope you at least has a positive experience.

Beware of the $50 cocktails

Pros: The staff
Cons: drink and food prices
Location: This is the where part of the movie "Scarface" was filmed. If you stay here you're probably going to the beach and the many nightclubs on this street.
The staff is what makes this a good hotel. Obviously, if you're staying at a hotel on South Beach you know it's a party area and it's not cheap. But the room was very reasonably priced and they offer free valet parking and other things. Of coarse the traffic in this area is very congested, but everything you want is within walking distance. If you go to the restaurant you should be careful about ordering drinks because they're crazy expensive. The room itself was decent and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was small, but still okay. It's an old hotel. I would have given this place a lower rating if weren't for the awesome staff. Everyone who works at the Beacon Hotel is very friendly and helpful. The staff is the reason I would stay at this place again
