Terrance Gaiter is an excellent front desk employee at the Cardozo on South Beach. He will do his best to help you with whatever you need. The rooms are clean (no carpet or curtains for those of us with allergies) The best feature of this hotel is that it is in WALKING distance to EVERYTING! We just leave our car... More

Hotel was very clean & comfortable. The location is in the heart of south beach & steps away from the actual ocean. The restaurant downstairs Sandia bar & grill has friendly staff & efficient managers. Theirs international menu has something delicious for the whole family or group of friends. Highly recommend both hotel & restaurant.

We got suite 314. This room was a topper. This room has a separate bedroom, bathroom and living room. We had no problems with the ice machine although he was very close to our room. There was a small fridge in our room. We had courtyardvieuw and therefore fortunately not too much disturbance from the festivities in front of the... More

The hotel staff are friendly & helpful. The hotel itself is really showing its age and needs an update in a serious way but if you want clean and decent rooms, it is fine. All wood floors and paneling, limited tv service (no movies). Some rooms have central air and others have wall units, which were less effective and harder... More

Modern, spacious and clean rooms, but more colonial style interior than art deco. Fantastic view from the ocean front rooms. You can stand in your shower and see the ocean. Friendly staff. The restaurant is very similar to the other tourist traps along Ocean Drive.

Loved this little place right on Ocean Drive. Just accross the street from the beach, but not to close to the wild party-all-night places that I was kept awake. Wooden floors, comfy bed, simple tasteful fixtures. A little expensive (I didn't realize I was booking during spring break season). Would stay here again and again.

The customer service was great at this hotel.We were in a nice spacious room, overlooking Ocean Dr and the Beach. The valet parking left a lot to be desired. We had to track down the valet to give him our keys, tracked them down again to pick up the car. Due to the location of the hotel, we walked every... More

Probably the best for Dollar value accommodation that we could find on the main beach strip. Hotel was surprisingly contemporary. We had a corner room on the top floor (Level 3) overlooking the beach. Room was great with mosquito netting over the King Size bed and sizeable room. Room could have done with brighter lighting option. Restaurant attached to the... More

You can't beat the location on the quieter end of South Beach. Small rooms but I'm sure most hotels there are similar. Great breakfast. Friendly staff. The one complaint is that the room walls seemed paper thin because you could hear every noise outside, and our room overlooked the side street. When someone walked past our room in the hallway...
