"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
"The Heart of South Beach"
We enjoyed our stay at Avalon. Location was perfect, staff was very helpful, and the continental breakfast was a plus. Room was small but we didn't spend much time there. We would definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia 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.

"Close to the north side harbour"
Walking distance to everything. Free street parking outside the hotel. Very friendly and informative staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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
Great little hotel. Location was fantastic. Would go again.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.

"South Beach Historical"
Nice, but a bit dated in terms of quality and amenities. Restaurant is a stand out for dinner on the strip.Genuine Expedia guest review

"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
I thought it was a great hotel in a great location. Very clean and super nice staff.Genuine Hotels.com 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

"Front desk attendance"
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"
rooms too small, very poor breakfast, lady at front desk very negative attitude when asking to contact expedia by phone. Ladies fixing breakfast asking us to close the fruit container like we should be doing that. Horrible experience!Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was nice and clean, a little small though. The hotel has a great location, there's a lot of restaurants and shops within walking distance, so if you don't have a car it's a good option.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

I would stay here again because its a prime location, decent price, but most of all the staff!!! Jorge was so helpful and nice the entire time. The rest of the staff was awesome as well. I will be staying here next time I come to Miami.Genuine Expedia guest review
"I keep coming back to this hotel."
I like this hotel because it is so close to beach entrances. I took a 3 day relaxation trip. I was at the beach shortly after I arrived. The water was clear and warm, and although it threatened to rain on day 2, the sun showed its face. I enjoyed great reading, authentic Cuban cuisine, fed a homeless gentleman, and window shopped.Genuine Expedia guest review
Concierge was very helpful with suggestions about dining. Jorge was GREAT!!!!!!!!!! it was great location!! close to everthing hotel is older but we did not mind. Staff very nice and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect location to everything!"
Just came back from Miami yesterday. We stayed here for 4 days and 3 nights, it was a group of 4 and we had a great stay. No complaints. The staff was excellent, the room is a bit small but who goes to Miami to stay in the room. There are a limited number of electrical outlets so if its a group of 2 or more bring an extension cord and you will be fine. […] I will definitely be staying here again!

Pros: Right on Ocean Drive on South Beach Next to Wet Willie's and Puerto Sagua (Cuban diner) Hotel restaurant (night) is relatively formal and rated well Decobike (bike-share) close by Front desk extremely nice, willing to provide anything (admittedly, we only asked for extra towels, band-aids on several occasions, and promoter passes) Breakfast provided […] (simple, but free! hard-boiled eggs, thinly sliced sopressata, starches, some fruit, drinks, etc.) Cons: Room smelled a little strange, maybe the cleaner they use No pool (our last trip had a pool which is sometimes nice) No hotel bar Not as lively as some other hotels on the Ocean (ex: Clevelander) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is very outdated and rooms are tiny. The first night the housekeeper didnt clean the bathroom, take the dirty towels, or change the linens on the bed. We had to.keep asking for towels and othef things.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Friendliest Hotel in South Beach"
The hotel staff was welcoming and friendly. Everyone is made to feel family....definitely this hotel's best attribute. I absolutely recommend it to anyone visiting South Beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not a bad stay, just LOUD!"
Front desk service was great. Check-in was quick & easy. Concierge provided wonderful resources when asked. All of the staff was pleasant. The rooms were smaller than I would've liked. My only complaint is the amount of noise & disturbance we experience from it. We could hear the water in the piping system everytime someone showered near our room. Every […] morning around 7:30 a dump truck would pick up trash & it sounded like we were at a landfill. This occurred on weekends as well. The walls were super thin.

"Good Value for Price"
Wasn't expecting much from this hotel (it was quite affordable) but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. My friends and I figured since we were in Miami for a long weekend and we probably not going to spend a ton of time in the hotel room we didn't need to splurge on anything extravagant. We wanted to be close the beach and this hotel is literally […] right across the street. The Avalon Hotel is very good for the price. It was small, but the beds were comfortable, the air conditioner worked and the bathroom was clean, there were even live orchids in the room. Would definitely recommend for someone looking for something nice and not trying to break the bank. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Beautiful Art Deco hotel. Great restaurant. Not exactly sound-proof, so pretty hard to sleep before 2 am when the discos along the Ocean Blvd settle downGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great South Beach Location"
This trip was just for a quick getaway to the beach and to the Florida Keys. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms had been very well maintained for a hotel of this age. The location of the hotel was perfect. We were right in the middle of the South Beach scene and we enjoyed sitting at the outdoor restaurant and people watch. Since this […] hotel was on the southern end of the strip, it made it an easy drive down to the keys for a day trip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
