Horrible uncomfortable bed in small room

2 out of 5
by from detroit
Posted Feb 14, 2017
Very disappointed in our stay especially after the good reviews we read online. We were told the bed was a queen but I am certain it was a full-size bed instead. VERY uncomfortable horrible bed. Instead of buying a new matress they place two blankets on top of the old mattress. Absolutely ridiculous and very uncomfortable. We woke up sore every single morning. No counter space at all in the bathroom we had to put our items on the floor or on top of toilet. The jacuzzi (which we thought was a pool for the photos) was luke warm at best. Staff was stingy with replacing soap and hand towels daily, we had to ask for them. We were woken up to the sound of traffic from main road every morning and even in the middle of the night given the old thin windows. Ear plugs are a must if you want any sleep. Overall very disappointing stay.

Close to the beach, and Filmore convention center

Cons: Be more clear on the parking for the hotel, we had to pay 35 for a valet lot near the hotel for over night parking.
We came to this hotel for a concert held near by. The location was .1 mile away so it was a safe walking distance. The staff was very nice, and the rooms reminded me of being in a house. for example at 3am when I was woken up by the sound of drunk people in the hall, and then could hear they were the room above me. I could hear the person throwing up, and at that point could not go back to sleep. The walls seamed very thin. Other than that experience the overall stay was good.

Hotel was okay. Nothing to write home about. Staff were okay. A bit overpriced considering the age of the rooms.

Perfect for our needs

5 out of 5
by from Miami Beach
Posted Nov 20, 2016
Pros: We liked the professionalism of the staff, the lovely garden where the breakfasts were served, and the special touches of comfort in the rooms.
Cons: Well...there is no elevator.
Location: the beach Lincoln Road Mall art museum walking tour of Art Deco area movie theater bus stop for airport bus
We were looking for a small hotel that was within walking distance of the Lincoln Road Mall, where we knew there was a cinema, restaurants, and shopping. Also, being close to the beach and the site of the walking tour in South Beach was hoped for, too. The Cadet Hotel met all of our needs....and the staff was efficient, knowledgeable, and generous with their time.

Dear William, We kindly appreciate your comments regarding our Hotel. As you may know our building is protected because of our beautiful Art Deco architecture. Trying to have to built an elevator could damage the main structure putting at risk the integrity of this Hotel. If any of our guests requires help with the bags we are more than happy to help. Once again, thank you for your visit and comments. Best regards,

Adequate but Disappointing Stay

4 out of 5
by from Boston, MA
Posted Oct 17, 2016
Pros: The bed (I slept well), the size of the room and size of the bathroom, the closet space, robes, and chairs.
Cons: No table/desk surface. Staff on loud walkie-talkies in hallways 730a Sat & Sun. The shower nearly impossible to regulate & very low water pressure.
Location: I selected The Cadet for the reasonable rate and proximity to the Convention Center and South Beach.
Generally, the hotel is comfortable. The scale is even smaller than envisioned online. It isn't as clean, overall, as I expected. The location is very good; not the best. The air conditioning, in the common areas and the guest room, is substandard. The property looks & feels "tired" even with apparent improvement attempts.

Dear JD, We appreciate the comments we receive from our guests because they help us to improve the service provided. Some of our rooms do not have a desk but getting one if needed is no problem for us, all a guest you have to do is just request and in no time you will have it. Unfortunately water pressure in Miami Beach area is very low making it impossible for us to fix it. We are always making new improvements to our facilities but maintaining the charm that characterizes The Cadet Hotel. Kind Regards,

Small rooms, but pretty good hotel.

3 out of 5
Posted Apr 29, 2016
The rooms are like closets, but overall the stay was decent. My biggest complaint was the no availability of beach space on the beach (eg: other hotels have chairs for rent). Greatest perk was the HOT water...this is often an issue in the hotels I stay in on south beach. Hotel staff were wonderful. Will this be my go-to hotel? No, but would I mind returning? If I had to, no--wasn't the best and wasn't the worst.

Very nice people. Clean. Nice environment, people playing piano... Sometimes a little bit noisy, more from outside but it's ok thinking that the hotel is there in the middle of everything.

Small Hotel near beach, and activities

3 out of 5
by from Michigan
Posted Mar 31, 2016
Pros: Location and quiet
Hotel was in a great location but short on amenities. Rooms small, Hot tub was hot, not much good for Miami Heat also closed early so could not use when it cooled down. We knew the hotel did not have a pool but also knew that other hotels offered pools to traveling guest for a fee or as long as you were purchasing food or drinks. We asked the staff if they had a list of these and was told no with no direction. We found a nice one on our own.
