I really enjoyed going to this hotel with my family. It was in the middle of everything! We had a nice dinner and after we walked around people watching on Ocean Drive. I was able to go out to meet some friends and could easily catch a cab. Everything is close by. The hotel had something for everyone. We had...

This hotel is right on the strip. The restaurant was fantastic! If you get a chance to eat there the seafood and steak was delicious! The service and workers were very helpful and pleasant.

This hotel was very impressive from top to bottom - from the location, to the food, to the service and hospitality. My boyfriend and I stayed at the Avalon for a weekend in April 2012, and we loved every minute of it. The seafood at the restaurant was some of the best I've ever had, and our waiter was wonderful....

This hotel was a superb location for myself and my 5 girlfriends! We were in walking distance to everything: nightclubs, restaurants, the beach, and more importantly (shopping!!)! Don't reserve this hotel thinking it's the Hilton or a five-star hotel, but definitely book if you're looking for a small, historic, hotel w/ great front desk people, a quiet downstairs (unlike other...

The service was horrible, the rooms were nasty, I had a cockroache in the room. It took an hour for valet to get my car, I was over charged for parking. I work at a hotel and because that they said their "real guests come first". I'm pretty sure I am a real guest paying the same as everyone else...

I am not one to slam any establishment however; the Avalon is an example of a hotel that banks on the idea that tourists will sacrifice comfort for location. This hotel is in an excellent location and the front desk/maintenance staff is very nice. The actual hotel itself leaves much to be desired. I checked into a delux king ocean...

Dear Sir, We appreciate you taking the time to write your review and apologize that we were not able to provide the experience you were expecting.

Best location in Miami Beach: Close to the restaurants, bars, beach and shopping. Yet very quiet rooms. Complimentary breakfast is basic, but offers a good start for the day! Free wifi works very well. Also available the possibility to use swimming pool of another hotel from the same owners (did not try).

Wonderful restaraunt in lobby for dinner. Location is the best. Rooms are absolutely a joke. Probably the worst hotel room/ value I've ever stayed at. If you can find a great deal... Under $200 for a room... Go for it for the location. Anything more is a total rip for this place. All fixtures/ lamps had rust and dust. Bathroom...
