While the location cannot be beat, the condition of the hotel in NO WAY justifies the price. For a 2-night stay I shelled out nearly $700! The room was TINY and quite old. Serious updating is needed. The staff was extremely helpful and professional.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice but noisy"
The hotel was very nice. The nightlife of Ocean Blvd can be very noisy if you sleep before midnight.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, right on the beach"
Let us check in early and upgraded us for free. Great view of the beach! Great location next to a bunch of restaurants!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good location and staff but it was not clean enough. It had a cockroach in my room's closet.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place to stay."
Although not directly on the beach the Avalon is a nice place to stay in the middle of everything that is SoBe. Def pricey but rooms are very comfortable and staff are helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
food was amazing. location very good. we went there lastweek, perfect timing for art deco, we had so much fun. couldn't ask for more for the price we paid for a southbeach hotel. i will stay at avalon with my next visit thereGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Miami beach vacation"
The staff was great at the hotel...The location was perfect...Genuine Expedia guest review
Very helpful and accommodating staff - gave us VIP passes to clubs that got us in without cover charges. Great, free continental breakfast. Perfect location on Ocean Drive.Genuine Expedia guest review
It can get loud into the early hours of the morning on weekends.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location, small rooms"
We had a great time when we visited South Beach. The hotel is nice, clean, and convenient. Some hotels in the area have beach chairs in the room, this does not. They rent they out down at the beach for $10/pp. Continental breakfast is included and is enough for even the hungry teenager. The rooms are small, but typical art deco hotels are. We would […] consider it for another time. Public parking garage is conveniently nearby Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Our room was smaller then we expected but reasonably clean. The stuff was ok but not extra nice. Very conveniently located in the middle of action on Ocean drive. At night it was pretty noisy from the street. Next time, I would probably find some other place to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"post cruise stay"
The staff was very friendly at check in and the whole time we were there. The location is perfect, being across the street from the beach and close to all the activity of Ocean Dr. The hotel is older but our room was very clean and comfortable and we will definitely there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great service, decent hotel, location +"
Great location and the service was very good. The rooms are older and cramped but then again it's Miami's deco districtGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel has a lot of potential, but needs SERIOUS redecorating and updates. It was really more hostel-like than a hotel....I wouldn't recommend staying here or stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location is convenient for beach, shopping, eating, and park activities. Front desk clerks (Anna and George) are very warm and responsive. The valet parking young men were very polite, even though we did not use the service. Before check-in we had concern about the noise from Ocean Drive, but even our room was close to the street, we had good night […] sleep during our stay. It provides complimentary breakfast buffet. Croissants were delicious. However, bathroom does not have ventilation. After a shower, the mirror becomes foggy and the floor is wet. The free Wi-Fi is slow. Access to power outlet is not convenient for recharging devices. I felt some French toasts and eggs in the buffet were not fresh. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for family"
The best thing about this hotel is its location. In the heart of Ocean Drive. The service is excellent too . Special thanks to George and Anna.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to everything that needs to be seen in Miami"
Fantastic! Love Avalon. The best time I have had in Miami and I'm ready to stay at The Avalon again. I hated leaving. All of the staff really take care of you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was perfect for our vacation needs. We started off with complimentary breakfast which had good choices so we were definitely satisfied. Our room was a great size and very comfortable. The hotel was very accomadating for holding our luggage and giving us towels for the beach across the street. The location was incredible! We would definitely […] recommend staying there and would go back in a heartbeat. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to everything!!"
I have been to Miami a few times but never stay on Ocean Drive. This hotel is right in the middle of everything. Room was small but its Miami no one stays in the room anywhere. If you are a light sleeper, dont get a room on the first floor. You can hear everything outside your window.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good hotel--no pool or beach chairs"
good hotel. no pool or beach chairs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The neighborhood is awesome and so is the hotel's restaurant. The room was small and the bed was uncomfortable. Good breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay for a beach vacation"
My friends and I stayed at the Avalon for one night before heading out on a cruise the next day. The hotel is in an awesome location across the street from a beautiful beach. Great price for the location and breakfast the next morning. The front desk workers were very nice. The hotel looked slightly rundown, and the room was small, but it was clean […] and quiet, so it served its purpose! I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to find a cheaper room along the beach. Seriously awesome location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location for us"
All went well according to plan and we were very satisfied.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff was polite and helpful. Front desk location in the middle of a loud restaurant is challenging during dinner service. Valet parking was very helpful when we arrived on a busy night. Location across from the beach is great. Location near nightclubs is fine if that is what you are looking for.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was a bit small, but clean. Breakfeast is good. Location of course is excellent. Service good. Very good value for Ocean. Would stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I enjoyed my stay staff was great just wifi lagged a little but overall greatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Birthday Ever"
Hotel Avalon is in a great location ! Stayed there this weekend during Miami carnival and had a great time. The rooms were small and showed signs of wear and tear. My room faced the hotel kitchen and the phone service was horrible no matter what company you had, I had to stand next to the window to take calls! I asked to be moved but because it was […] Carnival time there were no available options. There never really seemed to be anyone at the front desk, and as the restaurant is right at the front of the entrance pretty much anyone can come and go. That all being said the hotel is in a great location on the strip. Lots of hotels nearby so you'll always run into people. The beach is directly across the street! The rooms were kept clean and the bedding was super soft and fresh! I would def come back but next time a room not facing the kitchen would be preferable! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A place not to be missed"
A lovely hotel in the art deco district in Miami, close to all attractions. Staff were very friendly and informative. Room was lovely and clean with original fittings which included the air cooling system (this was a little noisy so was not used at night). Bed was really comfortable. Breakfast consisted of a good selection, something for everyone (even […] provided soy milk). No swimming pool but was able to use the "sister" hotel's, a short walk away. Beach is opposite hotel. Excellent restaurant. A walk down Ocean Drive next to hotels, returning on the ocean side is a must in the daytime and at night. Ocean Drive is expensive for food and drinks (most restaurants & bars have "Happy Hours" so need to check out offers and times). Less expensive food of good quality can be found on neighbouring streets. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"small room, no gym"
The hotel location is fantastic. The staff--especially Ana-- is very attentive to the guests' needs. The room however was incredibly small. The refrigerator was in the closet and the door did not open in the right direction so it was hard to get into the refirgerator. The bathroom was small but I've been in smaller restrooms on a cruise ship so that […] was tolerable. The room size however was very disappointing. I should have paid more attention when booking the hotel but I missed the detail about the workout facilities which were absent. There is a deal with a local gym but the day passes are $25.

"Great Location, friendly service!"
The location is the best you can get to be in the middle of it all... It doesn't get any better than this if you want to experience the true South Beach. The hotel was Ok, comfortable, rooms are a bit small, and the hotel itself is a bit outdated, but the service is very friendly and since being inside the room is probably something you are going to […] spend very little time doing, being at the Avalon ended up being a very good experience.

Nice hotel in a very good location near beach and restaurants. Only disappointment was the noise from the street, that the beachfront room suffered every night. However price/quality is excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"key west and miami beach"
The staff and location were exceptional, the room was very small and not enough storage space for 4 people even though we were told it could accomodate 4. We asked everyday of our visit to have enough towels for 4,but everyday we had to ask for more. The desk was very quick to bring them to our room. As with all the hotels on the Ocean ave. it bothered […] me that we had to enter through the dining room in our bathing suits. Parking was expensive and they were quick to get our car to us,but, loading and unloading was a problem. There was no pool and the sister hotel that was supposed to be close was several blocks away.No rooftop access to enjoy view or sit and relax. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for the money and location."
Great hotel for the price. It isn't the fanciest of places, but its location makes up for it. It is located on Ocean Drive right across from the beach and within walking distance to almost everything. The staff was so friendly and helpful, too. The continental breakfast is basic but was a perfect way for us to start our day and allowed us to save extra […] money for the night's festivities. While we were there we agreed to plan a trip back; and after two days of being home, the trip is already booked! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Perfect location and amazing staff"
Superb location, amazing staff. However, room was too small. Breakfast was very basic. Overall: if you're looking for a clean room to sleep in and spend most of the day out, friendly and very helpful staff, and the BEST location in South Beach, - the Avalon hotel is for you. Just skip the included breakfast, it's not worth it.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Location is great, close to the beach, shops & main strip. Great staff very knowledgable of the area. Rooms not bad for the style and age of the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review

"In the middle of the beach street"
nice small art deco hotel in the middle of the beach street with very romantic view from the large windows during the breakfest...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a great hotel and the staff was amazing. They were full the next day so we were not able to get a late checkout. We had hoped to spend some more time on the beach and be able to shower in our room. Wasn't their fault but would have been perfect if that could have happened. You will not find a better location to be in the middle of the action. […] I would stay here again. Older hotel but very nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Place to stay if you want to be in S. Beach"
Excellent location to hang out in South Beach. Rooms are clean and beds are really comfortable. Not a plush hotel but if your hanging with your friends it's perfect! Thanks to George for making our stay great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"a quiet spot to relax and enjoy a busy area"
the staff were willing to help us with any needs we had for things such as reservations, directions and tips on how to avoid some of Miami's worst traffic nightmares. the valet parking service is slow but reliable. the restaurant at the hotel is wonderful for dinner. the breakfast buffet in the morning is functional; the coffee for which , however , […] is really good.

"Great hotel for couples and singles with no kids"
Perfect place to stay if you want quick access to the beach and night clubs since you are right accross from the beach on Ocean dr, not so great if you are family with kids bc of the noises and the night clubs. The room is ok but don't expect 5 stars quality like in Vegas but who care since you will spend most of the time on the beach or at one of the […] clubs right?Will stay here again if we go here again w/o the kids but will prefer Lincoln st. next time if the kids travelling with us.

"Avalon - Good Location, Good Decor"
The Avalon Hotel is near the middle of the section of outdoor cafes along Ocean Blvd. The hallways and rooms are well decorated and the service at the front desk was good. The restaurant is dinner only, which leaves the lobby for hotel guests during midday hours. If you chose not to valet on a busy weekend, you might have to park up at 16th street, […] which is a walk. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome place right on the strip!"
we booked the room two hours before getting there. the room was small, but big enough, and we had a view of the ocean, which we did not ask for. the front desk also was able to give us passes to cut the line at the clubs. we did not eat at the restaurant, but it seemed like it was a high quality place.Genuine Expedia guest review
