"Very nice, a little pricey though"
The only things I didn't like about the room was its size and there was only one outlet to plug into. Restaurant downstairs was very nice.

"Good hotel. Don't upgrade your room."
Great hotel. Walls a bit thin so it's noisy. Don't pay extra for Ocean Front room. Can't see the ocean and the street is so noisy at night you will never sleep.

"Relatively ok"
Nice hotel, but very dated. Great area, right on the main southbeach strip, so you can walk everywhere. Also, valet was a bit of a pain at times. It usually took 30-45min to get our car, and took forever to drop it off as well

"Wonderful hotel across the street from South Beach"
Hotel staff is excellent and very helpful. The hotel is extremely clean and fresh. The beds are big, puffy and white and so inviting and comfortable. Breakfast and dinner on the front porch and then cross the street to South Beach. Everything is right here within walking distance. The evening dinner menu is spectacular. This is a great hotel right in the heart of South Beach.

"Not for families"
The staff was friendly and professional but it seemed more like an Inn or B&B. Older rooms & bathrooms, creaky floors and we could hear everything in the hall, in other rooms and even outside. We were woken up in the morning by the clanging of plates and silverware in the restaurant/front desk area. We were traveling with children and...um...let's just say the area surrounding the hotel (restaurants, streets, sidewalk,,etc) was a little too "lively" for a family setting. I wouldn't reccomend this hotel for people traveling with children and/or teenagers.

"Excellent customer service,right across from beach"
Hotel is located directly across the street in the middle of ocean drive, a few minutes walk to Clevelander and Mango's. I keep booking this hotel due to their customer service, one of the best by far and I travel at least once a month. This hotel offers free breakfast and the staff is very very friendly, 10 thumbs up. Tons and tons of restaurants, ladies the mac store is one block away to get make up done- about a 25 second walk, 2 blocks up to washington, tons and tons of stores and restaurants around that are way less expensive than the ones on ocean ave. About 2 minutes walking to wet willies, just a great location in general! Rooms clean, small but it's fine

Response by Avalon Hotel
Dear Guest, Thank you for your comments. It’s true that Ocean Drive, especially with all the visitors at the height of the winter season, can be noisy at night. Your letter reminded us to ask guests whether they are light sleepers, so we can adjust their accommodations accordingly. We’ll be certain to ask you that question when you return, as I hope you will. Warm regards; Staff & Management Avalon Hotel

"OK hotel located across the beach"
The primary reason I booked this hotel is because of its location--it's right on Ocean Drive, which is South Beach's main sightseeing strip, and across the beach. It's important to note that Ocean Drive is a bit heavy on vehicle and foot traffic making parking along the street a great challenge...I'd be prepared to just valet your car at the hotel which may seem pricey but relative to Ocean Drive, you should be okay with it. Both checking-in and checking-out was easy and quick and the hotel staff was nice and helpful for the most part, providing my friend and I many suggestions for non-touristy bars and clubs. The room had everything my friend and I needed (comfortable beds and free WiFi internet); however, the room is a bit small to walk around...this shouldn't be a problem since you're in South Beach, Miami, and should be spending time walking around outside anyway. A few final notes: It smelt upon walking into the hotel room; the walls must've been thin since we could hear people in other rooms and in the halls; there is no vent in the bathroom; the refrigerator is located in the closet; and finally, complimentary breakfast is continental-like...don't expect anything fancy.

"Cute Little Hotel"
This is a super area. Lovely little hotel. Bright and cheery. Breakfast was great. Ambiance awesome. The room was small, but that isn't a problem. The only problem we had was our room must have been right next to or on top of a generator or air conditioning compressor for the entire building. It was so loud, I couldn't sleep well, despite earplugs. The bed and the floor were practically vibrating. I'm not sure why they even check out this room. We got lucky I guess since we checked in late. I may have left something there, but despite calling several times and leaving a message over the last week, I have received no response.

"Fine hotel, great location, a little dated"
The Avalon is a nice but old hotel. The room was nice, but dated. The cleaning staff could use a refresher on common elements to clean, like light switches on the wall in the bathroom which looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a while. The staff was friendly and quick checking in and out. The location is about as good as it gets in terms of being on South Beach, which is a big plus if that was where you want to hang out. However, note that it gets pretty noisy until late into the night outside; so if you're not the one out there making the noise but are in the room, it could keep you up. This is not an Avalon-specific issue, just a heads up for those who haven't stayed there before.

"Noisy Rooms"
The hotel has the advantage of being right on Ocean View rd, but the disadvantage of being right over restaurants, night clubs, and non-stop traffic from excessively load motor bikes. Paid extra for the corner view room, but no real advantage as the view of palms trees and a glimpse of the ocean. The corner room only makes the noise worse. Breakfast was below average, but what made it worse was the very rude lady that set it up and kept it stocked. Next time would stay one or two streets back on Colins or Washington.

"On the beach, but not worth the price"
The location, and lobby of the hotel were lovely, which is why I was astonished at the terrible condition of the room. It was small, dingy, with a faint smell of something damp. The staff were all rude and impatient, almost n never friendly. I was happy to be close to the beach but I'm not sure it was worth it to be at the Avalon.

"What I expected - but a drag with a car"
Tiny rooms (but expected as it is an old building). Parts of the hotel need some paint and cleaning (like elevators..it is old, and is a beach hotel, so partly to be expected, but still rough). Surprisingly quiet considering the neighborhood. Very clean room and shower. Helpful and friendly front desk. Beach directly across the street. Very basic breakfast to get the day started. My biggest issue was dealing with having a car. I have been to South Beach twice before, and knew parking is very limited on South Beach and most of the hotels use valets for about $27 a day....again, known going in, but at this hotel VERY difficult to get a valet to take my car every time I arrived back at the hotel (there are two parking spots in front to the hotel, if they are full there is nowhere to even wait for a valet). Twice it took over 25 minutes to just leave my car with a valet, which was beyond reasonable. Getting my car back, so I could leave took between 25 and 45 minutes each time - so make sure you call the front desk well in advance of when you want to leave. Pretty much what I expected, except for the extreme hassle of simply getting dropping my car off so I could get to my room or got to the beach or whatever. If you have a car and will be coming and going via car from the hotel daily, this may not be a good choice. If you plan on getting to South Beach and staying put, the location is good, rates reasonable and rooms are simple and clean.

This hotel is in the middle of where you want to be in South Beach. The lobby and public spaces are quite nice, the rooms are more basic and could use some upgrading. Staff was pleasant and helpful from the parking valet to the housekeepers. Prices vary wildly in SoBe so shop a little. We didn't spend a lot of time in the room so that didn't matter as much as the location.
