"Centrally located for all acitivities"
The Avalon Hotel is great. Personnel is very responsive and eager in helping. Parking only via valet at a cost of $27 per day which adds additional cost. However, this is a very charming hotel and we recommend staying when in South Beach. Right across the street from the beach. Rooms very clean. The Seafood Orzo Patellla in resturant is to die for!!!!! […] We will deifinitely return Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location. Room was not very nice and smelled like mildew. Staff was very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel perfectly located"
My husband and I stayed here for one night. The location was perfect for the beach and all the other amenities of South Beach. The hotel rooms whilst a bit on the small side are clean and comfortable. We found the breakfast to be delicious and plentiful with the hotel staff friendly, helpful and very professional.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place in South Beach"
Fantastic location with very friendly and helpful staff. And it's on a path of Ocean Drive that does not get too noisy. But all the fun is 2 mins walkGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great location and friendly service"
The price is reasonable for the excellent location and the staff was very warm and friendly. It is a bit shabby, and the walls are paper thin. The room was very tight for four people, but we were just there for one night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place in the heart of South beach"
Great safe fun place in the heart of South beach - with a heart.. The staff are and were fantastically great and attentive A fish called Avalon, restaurant was fantastic. The bar was a nice sanctuary in the crazy fun south beach mayhem. If I could make a change it would be the carpets - they are very tired and the bathrooms need a bit of love. I will […] be back Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location, pretty dated. Room had good coffee and clean sheets but the bed side table was sticky with glass /drink rings. We didn't eat at the restaurant but atmosphere was nice and crowded in a good wayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and Convenient"
Excellent location for beach and access to everything in Miami via bus service. Used air conditioning unit as white noise to mask late nighters. We would definately stay at the Avalon again if the need arises. Make certain you know what is and is not complementary in your room or you might get a shock at the end of your stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
the walls are paper thin. heard every noise from room next to us. it is old style charm with a touch of new world decor. was not impressed when we first checked in. a little smelly in corridors but room was immaculate. it totally transformed into a different atmosphere at night which was much to our delight. the restaurant apparently is very well know […] and award winning although we did not eat there. it is right across the street from the beach. day crowd is much different then the night crowd. was good for one night. breakfast was good too.

"just location, nothing more."
The only and only good thing about Avalon is its location. It's cross the street from the beach and surrounded with good stors like Zara and Gap. However, you're gonna need a taxi (~$12) to the Lincoln Rd and Espanola Way. Other than the location, everything else was bad. The rooms smell so bad. My wife got sick because of it. The carp was very dirty. […] My daughter's feet became black. The staff was ok. Pay little bit more and go somewhere else. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Special Stay at Avalon"
This was my first trip to South Beach and my stay at the Avalon hotel could not have been better. The room was clean and well maintained. The staff at the desk were very helpful and willing to provide information as to where to go and what to see. They went out of their way to make sure everything was to your liking. One thing I regret is we did not […] have dinner at the hotel. In looking at the menu and the people having dinner it appears that they do and outstanding job. I will be sure to have dinner there during my next stay. Overall the stay was really great and would recommend it to my friends. I would choose to have room off the front ocean side if you are sensitive to noise during the night. South Beach activity is non-stop until the wee hours into the morning. Have fun and enjoy the Avalon Hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
(Not so) cheap and cheerful hotel in a terrific location. A little pricey for what you get but its on the beach and you pay for it. The staff was great and the restaurant is terrific. Hotel.com check out was a little confusing (one room prepaid, the others had to pay at check out) but all in all, a good experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overrated and Disappointed"
We were highly disappointed by this hotels high marks not matching the actual. Our room had stains on the ceiling and walls, the carpet was also stained and dirty. The overall cleanliness was similar to a highway discount motel. The morning continental breakfast was very weak and cheaply done. The morning staff was loud and inconsiderate of guests in […] breakfast lobby. The two positives were the front desk clerk was friendly and helpful and the dinner at the hotel restaurant was delicious. However, our waiter was terrible. He couldn't recall the specials and he seldom returned to our table to check on us. We waited 20 min for the bill. Everything is way over priced for such poor quality!

"Right in the action"
Great location, across from the park and ocean. Lots of food choices nearby. A bit noisy, but you are right in the midst of the hotspot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A comfortable window on the world of South Florida"
Choice location that would be ocean front were it not for the amazing and beautiful green space between Ocean Drive and the dunes. If you like the charm, architecture and compact size of a classic, smaller hotel right in the middle of things, you will dig this place. If you require a lobby for sitting, a gym/pool, or if you need a car for lots of coming […] and going, this is not your place. Also, not many choices on the free breakfast for those who need to eat healthy/low sugar. Staff was pleasant but when I arrived and immediately realized that I had left my prescription glasses in the cab, they were clueless about how to help me recover them (even though I had the driver's name and license #). Space is at a premium in this area so at night the sidewalks become crowded restaurants and there is little place to park or walk. But then that is all part of the charm of this urbane and truly unique part of America. There is music every where, lots of choices on food and tons of beautiful people in nice clothes. If you really want to get a taste of the incredible INTERNATIONAL culture that is south Florida, you have a little sense of adventure, and you can do without some of your big American comforts for a few days, the Avalon can be your perfect catbird seat. Wish I had stayed four days instead of three. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Art Deco small hotel on Ocean Drive."
Staff were brilliant. Very clean rooms and bathrooms and rooms were adequate given the restrictions imposed by the building. Brilliant location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient to most interesting places."
It's a very convenient place for staying beach, tasting food, and shopping. Nice place for vacation. However, the room is smaller.Genuine Expedia guest review
I've stayed at this hotel several times over the years and it's always a nice experience. You cannot ask for a better location on South Beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"at a lower price it may of been worth it"
The hotel staff are the best asset of the Avalon. The front dest were friendly and always helpful. The first room was so noisy I gave up the "Ocean view" for a room towards the back of the hotel looking at the garbage dumps. The restaurant staff would talk below our window into the night. The only way to cover the noise was to keep the air-conditioning […] unit on fan at all times. The maid would call our room around 10am to ask if she could come clean it, this was a weekend stay. "Cleaning" meant pulling up the comforter and straightening the sheets. Because it was Art Basel weekend we paid almost $500 a night for what was really a $150 a night room. If we had not been paying so much we might of overlooked how warn the hotel was and been happy with the great location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel right across from the beach"
We stayed at Avalon during our recent trip to South Beach. The Avalon staff was beyond helpful and extremely nice. The room was clean and in keeping with the time period. If you're looking for everything to be new and updated this isn't the place for you but if you like the Art Deco decor this was a nicer place than others I've stayed at on South Beach. […] The staff is what really made the place. For parking use the public garage on 7th between Washington and Collins. It is a very short walk to Avalon from there.

"Nice hotel with perfect location and friendly staf"
Perfect located hotel with friendly staf on Ocean Drive. Family rooms a bit small for four persons with one suitcase each. small closet, small fridge. Very nice restaurant " A Fisch called Avalon" in the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Our stay was only one night. The staff was very friendly. The room was small but clean, furnishings needs updating. We were looking for a great location and this it has. Would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The quality of your stay depends on your room"
The first night was the worst of our stay. We got room 221 on the back of the hotel and we could not sleep the all night because of the noise (air conditioning system machines especially ....) We asked to change and hopefully they gave us a much better room 318 on the 7th street which was much more pleasent. Breakfast is included and quite good. Ana […] at the reception is very kind.

"next to all the action"
NIce vintage hotel. That being said the bathrooms are small. Biggest drawback is not enough electrical outlets for all our electronics. But it was only a slight inconvenience. That staff were outstanding, very will to help. I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, good service,horrible accommodatio"
Very nice location, great personnel, horrible accomodations. To much money for this hotel. Stayed the next night at the Lowes, few bucks more but what a difference.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Best spot on Ocean!"
I will be staying here again and again. Service was great! Ana at the front desk has a great attitude and actually speaks English! The hotel has cameras everywhere and made me feel secure coming back late at night. The room was clean, food was good. The free breakfast was not breakfast, do not rely on this as a meal lol. I have no complaints, the A/C […] worked, shower was hot and house keepers did a great job. Ive been going to South Beach for 10 years for vacation and this is the best spot on Ocean for the price.

"Right on Ocean Drive!"
Nice hotel but looked newer on their website. Smallest room I have ever stayed at. Plus, was the old art deco style and friendly staff. Beware the cocktails at locations on Ocean Drive can cost $20 and they don't tell you until you receive your bill!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Honeymoon Roadtrip Day 2"
We wanted the 1980's South Beach Miami Vice experience and this hotel was a good choice because the location is perfect. Traffic on ocean drive was ridiculous the whole time we were there and so trying to figure out what to do with our car wasn't easy. We circled the block and called the front desk and they told us we had to drop off the car directly […] in front of the hotel - this was easier said than done. Parking was a sizeable additional fee on top of the room rate. The woman at the front desk, Ana, was great. She was very friendly and accommodating, even when I left my room key on the beach. The lobby turns into a nice restaurant at night. This isn't too big a deal but it does get crowded and hectic after 5pm. The room itself was very basic but it did have a mini-refrigerator and came with free bottled waters and a keurig coffemaker. We got a free upgrade to an ocean view room and the view of the busy street was great but obviously it was loud. The room and bathroom were small but they were adequate for one night. A long stay might get uncomfortable. The room wasn't dirty but it felt old (in all fairness it is old). Overall, the location is clearly the draw here. It was great in that regard and I probably won't go back to South Beach but if I did I would probably stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Location, Great Staff, Okay Rooms"
Title says it all--the staff is amazing and accommodating and you can't beat the location. The rooms, however, were very small and very hot (but hey, Miami in August...). For the price, location, and staff, however, this was a great choice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel in a great location"
Overall, staying at the Avalon was a great experience. Like many hotels on South Beach, it's old, but pretty well maintained with all the accommodations you'd expect from a newer, larger hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Perfect for a quick, weekend getaway"
If you are looking for a 5 star stay, look elsewhere, but this hotel was perfect for what we needed- a girl's weekend away! The staff was exceptional, accomodating, and helpful. Jorge at the reception desk was always friendly and polite, offering his help whenever he saw us. Even offering us towels and beach chairs. We needed the room for the basics: […] a clean, comfortable stay where we could shower, sleep, and hang out in between our days spent on the beach, shopping, and hanging out and for coming "home" after our nights on the town. The proximity to nearby restaurants and the beach couldn't be beat. All in all, a pleasant stay! Would definitely stay again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

There was a front desk girl name Rita or Tina she was not friendly at all she doesn't know how take care of the customer it was a Guy that hi was attending on Monday when I arrived he was very kind and very helpfully he quick find some body to help me out with suit cases I gave him a 10 of his serviceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was our 4th stay at the Avalon hotel. The staff always takes wonderful care of us. Jorge and Ana are amazing and treat us like family. If you need any advice on where to eat or what to do, just ask them! We had an Ocean View Queen room. The bed was super comfy and we enjoyed having a mini-fridge in our room. As far as the location, it's right in […] the heart of South Beach. To get to the beach, you need only cross the street. However, if you're looking for a quiet hotel, this place is not for you. Because it's located in the middle of all of the action, noises from outside can be heard into the wee hours of the morning. For us, this wasn't a problem, for others it may be. We absolutely love the Avalon hotel and are already planning our next stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"My Birthday Getaway;)"
The Avalon was in a great location. We were in the midst of everything and right across from the beach. Even so, the rooms were extremely small and very dated!!! My friend made a great suggestion when she said, "always look at the bathrooms in the online pictures, they tell the story of the hotel". I laughed when I thought about how right she was because […] there were no online pictures of the bathroom:( If you are looking for luxury, this is not the place. If you are looking for fun, great customer service and a great location, this is the place. The staff was helpful and when we had an issue with the hot water, they were right on it!!! The free breakfast was also a plus and overall, we had a great time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"not the best experience"
