“Love love love this hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

Found this hotel through the great reviews on Tripadvisor, and it didn't dissappoint! Very well situated only two blocks from the beach, and with valet parking just around the corner from the hotel. Such good value for money if you compare with many of the other Miami hotels. Also, very friendly and helpful staff!

Great room with everything you could need. Old house, but tastefully redecorated and done up with a modern scandinavian feel to it. Super comfy bed, speedy wifi and a fridge in room are things that I really appreciate :) Nice clean bathroom with tub. Lovely little touches when we checked in such as chocolates, bottled water and fresh fruit and berries.

The only cons I could think of is that the bar and restaurant is expensive - we had a beer in the evening that cost $8 each, and breakfast is $15. Also, it's an old building so if you have noisy neighbours you will hear them as they walk past your room - we had french girls next door that came in with the giggles at 3am.

We went on a mini cruise from Miami and stayed in the Cadet Hotel for a couple of nights after we got back before heading up to Orlando.

Lovely little hotel in a great location. Rooms was really spacious and very clean. Our toilet was broken when we arrived but we contacted reception who sent someone up very quickly and then called out a plumber the same day and was all fixed very quickly.

My only negative would be how noisy it is but we got used to that and i guess its Miami so should have expected that!

A great little property 1 block from collins and Delano. No pool, but has outdoor courtyard with 4 chaise lounge chairs for tanning around a huge hottub that closes at 10. 2 blocks to the beach. Parking is $30 with in and out about 150 feet away, secure lot with 24 hour attendants. Service is great, breakfast simple. Good deal if undeR $200. Quiet rooms, only issue is that maid sevice startsat 9am, so you'll hear some noise from the hallway staring at this time. Fine if up early, kind of annoying if you get home at 4am and want to sleep in. Rooms small, but unless you plan on forking over $500 for a suite somewhere, all the rooms in SoBe will be this size.

My husband and I recently spent 3 nights at the Cadet Hotel. We found our room to be very nice and the location was great. The staff were very polite and helpful. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

I can't rate this place highly enough for service. This is our fourth visit and we'll be back again. The little touches such as the fruit on arrival, holding the door open, chocolates at bedtime all make this place a little gem of a hotel in a wonderful location a block from the beach and Lincoln Mall. I reviewed this place a few years ago so won't go into too much detail, other than to say I highly recommend a stay here!!

I was in Miami Beach for a convention. The good news is you can walk from the hotel to the convention center In about five minutes. But... My room measured 12X12 feet. The closet had a door that was 5 feet tall. There was no desk to work at, there was nowhere in the bathroom for a glass and your shaving gear at the same time and the cockroaches were olympic size. I read about the complaints about the front desk and did not find any of the rude behavior but I found them ineffective in fixing problems. My toilet ran continuously and despite telling the desk three times it was never fixed. Oh... Did I mention there is no thermostat to control the air conditioner. If you are a guy at a meeting it will save you some $ to stay here. Just don't bring your wife she won't like it.
