It is centrally located in the art deco district. It was pricey for the room which was dated and old. There is construction right next door so stay in the south wing.Not a great place to stay, unless you get a room for less then $200 per night.

A very practical hotel if you have business in Sandyford. Light and spacious room and the staff in the reception is very friendly and helpful. 15-20 mins taxi to Dublin's restaurants and pubs. The breakfast buffet is fresh and there are restaurants in the hotel, which is good as the area around the hotel is empty after business hours... Small...

We stayed here for 8 days. Room was on 5th floor and elevator was broken so we had to use the stair to get to our floor. Our view was not very nice and the room was super small. Our toilet would not flush, fridge did not get cold, and light in room went out. They fixed everything very fast...

Hello Emma, Firstly we would like to say thank you for having taken the time and share your experience with us. While we are truly disappointed that our location was not to your standard, we can understand that South Beach, at a specific time of the year, is not for everyone. We would love to invite you back at more...

We reserved the room online and requested a room away from he elevators. When we arrived to check in, my wife specifically asked for a "quiet" room. The desk clerk said no problem. The room was relatively small...only a stand up shower. The night was fine until about 8am when a construction crew started working right below our window. Speaking...

This is a cute boutique hotel. I booked this hotel because of the location... that was great. Staff was friendly during check-in and duration of stay. The elevator is old and SMALL. Literally fits 2 ppl max! There's this cute little upstairs sitting area with Starbucks coffee (in a large thermos) and hot water for tea. I used the workout...

Nice enough staff and all, decent place, but as of the time of our visit in early May 2017 it's next door to a major, major construction project. So, no sleeping in... the breakfast in the morning is easily rivaled at any chain hotel on I-80, I-70 or any airport hotel. Don't bother with the 'buffet'. Order off the menu.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review and feedback. We understand that construction can be an unwelcomed sight for visitors wanting to enjoy the beauty of South Beach. Our hotel managers constantly monitored the property and spoke with their construction management team to ensure they worked within city permits so as not to disrupt our guests during off hours. They...

Beacon Hotel is Cosy hotel at excellent location. I enjoyed my stay in that hotel. All front desk staff were extremely helpful. The restaurant food was excellent. My suggestion would be to review the bed / mattress ( It is not bad) especially for couple planning to spend a night in that hotel.
