We stayed here for 3 nights prior to taking a cruise. The location is great...Lots of places to walk to and the beach is a block away. The room was small but adequate. It could have used a dresser or a luggage rack. It was easy to hear other guests but not terrible. The front desk people were great and... More

What a location!! It's a minute walk to the beach and is a south beach art deco beauty that appears in Dorking Kindersleys top 10. Set in the heart of the art deco area of south beach its location is unsurpassable. The rooms are stylish and perfectly in keeping with the ambience of the area. Use their valet parking. It's...

It was a nice stay. The room was good, clear and silent and the location can’t be better. The very close public park is an excellent choice if you have a car. The special was the excellent help, anytime we need, from Terrance Gaiter at the front desk.

Short trip to Miami. Friendly staff and good location. Rooms clean and comfortable. Very thin walls - could hear every word of the conversation next door. A/C is rather noisy but effective. Food at the grill is pretty good.

We were only in Miami for one night and wanting something fun and still reasonable, chose the Cardozo. Great experience starting with Terrance at the front desk who was helpful, efficient and charming! Our corner room was lovely (larger than the standard rooms). There was street noise but this was expected as our room faced Ocean Drive. Parked in the... More

The Cardozo is similar to the many 3-star hotels, on Ocean Drive. Pros: a very good location, friendly staff, a clean room, comfortable beds, and no hidden "resort fees". Cons: thin walls, a basic & smaller room (only two beds, and no dresser, chairs, etc.), and a small bathroom. When I booked this hotel, 3 star hotels, in South Beach,... More

Bartenders were very friendly. Good location-- Walking distance from variety of restaurants and stores and beach. Cheap cab ride to anywhere that is not walking distance. Bathroom was... More

I just came back from my stay at Cardozo in South Beach and it was unforgettable. The rooms were very nice and comfortable, I didn't feel as if I was in a hotel. Great location and awesome food and drinks! The only problem is the rooms were all non-smoking, and my sweetheart wasn't happy about that. The resort fee was... More

Terrible hotel and service offered by both receptionist and Management. Location can be hit and miss due to proximity with Ocean Drive. There are plenty of better choices in South Beach, better priced and hotels that offered a better feeling and experience. The reception is tiny and looks like you are entering an hostel rather than an hotel. Never again.

This hotel is on the Ocean Drive strip, which is a very loud and touristy section of bars/restaurants, most of which are attached to hotels. This hotel basically has a reception desk and that's it. Instead of a lobby, you have the bar/restaurant downstairs, which is like all of the other ones on the strip. My room was large and... More
