I came here for the summer of 2014. I was extremely disappointed. My only regret for this bad review was the extremely kind older man that works there. I'm not sure his position there but he was very helpful throughout our stay. Our room was the worst part. It was literally four white walls with a couple beds. I found... More

Extra cost when you check in... for amenities, like the disgusting pool chairs and towels that you have to ask for, stained bed linen, and maybe the coffee mugs with little packets of creamer and sugar but no coffee pot or coffee anywhere in sight. Musty room, sink stuck to wall with a boat load of caulk that is still... More

I was a little nervous when our cab driver hadn't heard of this place, and this was one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. We arrived around 5pm and were told our rooms were not ready yet, and check in was at 4pm. The person working looked at us like we were crazy when we asked if we... More

I had been to Miami a few times but never stayed in south beach by the Art Deco district. This time I thought it would be good to explore the area properly so I booked at the Cavalier Hotel. When I got there a water pipe burst next door and everybody was evacuated and redirected to hotels around the area.... More

Great location and upon entering the reception I was pleased with the appearance and standard but as soon as I walked up the stairs there was a smell of damp. Same smell in the room which was dusty and had an uninviting appearance. The window was so thin that it sounded as though it didn't even exist. We encountered a... More

I stayed at the Carlton from September 12-14. If your NOT looking for a fancy hotel, just somewhere decent to lay your head this is the place. The hotel is definitely old. The floors squeak when you walk. The doors are super old on the rooms. They look like if you put a little power to it you could bust... More

The rooms are far from clean the fans are full of dust along side of everything else, the room is damp and clammy And stinks! They charge 25 dollars a day parking even the day we left at half...

Although we had read the comments about this hotel and were prepared for worst, I'd say we were surprised. Great location. Room was clean, with air-conditioner. We booked from ebookers, there was written that every room has a mini-fridge, actually they don't. Just a casual room with TV. They have a pool, it was cleaned many times a day. For... More

I was there for a week during the Winter Music Conference. They never cleaned the rooms and would never stay there again. The floor was dirty and i had to call to get the room vaccumed. Next time i'll stay on Ocean Drive.
