“Very nice boutique hotel, but talk to the front desk before you choose where to park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

This is a very nice boutique hotel with strong French influence in decors. Standard room is small (like the hotel you see in Europe), but quiet. Very good value for the money.

The only thing you need to be aware is that Cadet has no parking space. Make sure you check with the front desk before choosing where to park. I absolutely hate dishonest people and I had a very bad experience with the place I parked (addmitedly, I did not check with the hotel staff first).

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking your time to share your experience with us.

We always recommend to our guest to check with us before parking because some parking lots in the area take advantage of the tourist that are not aware of the parking rates and locations.

Our standard room is the smallest room in the hotel. We have rooms that accommodate everyone perfectly ranging from King Size beds to Superior rooms and Junior Suites.

We hope to see you back soon!

Warm Regards,

Manager on Duty

Cadet hotel is in a very convienient location. Tucked away just enough to have a great night sleep. Walking distance to beach, Lincoln mall, Ocean drive, clubs, restaurants, anything you can think of. Clean comfortable room and a well mannered professional, and extremely hospitable staff. Well worth staying.

Dear Guest,

We thank you for your stay, and we are very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay.

Our location is very convenient for guest to explore South Beach because everything is walking distance from us, yet as you mentioned our hotel is located in a quiet street which is what sets up apart from all the hotels on South Beach.

You can now consider Cadet Hotel your home during your next visit to Miami Beach.

We hope to see you back soon!

Warm Regards,

I was in town for a conferrence and all the large hotels were all booked. I did some searching and found The Cadet. It is about a block and a half to the convention center, a block and a half to the beach, about two blocks from Lincoln. The King room was great and roomy for a smaller hotel. The staff was very attentive and I found that they fill the room with things I may have left at home. The funny thing was that you don't control the air conditioning tempature, they do. Once I figured that out and they set my tempature to what I wanted, it was all good. Thank you Cadet for a great stay and will stay there next time I am in South Beach.

Room Tip: Try the king room or larger. Looking it at the twins looked a little small for my tastes.

Dear Guest,

It was a pleasure to have you stay with us!

Our location is ideal for guests who come to Miami for conventions. As you mentioned, we are located only two blocks away from the convention center but also walking distance to all the attractions our city has to offer. Guest who attend conventions also have an opportunity after a long day of work to relax and enjoy everything Miami has to offer.

The attention to every detail in our rooms is incomparable. No two rooms look the same they all have their own personality.

From all the staff at the Cadet Hotel we thank you for your wonderful comments; it is always a pleasure to serve you.

We remain at your service.

My husband and I, along with three other couples stayed at The Cadet for two nights. The hotel is in a great location, within walking distance to restaurants, shopping, and clubs. The hotel staff could not have been more helpful. The rooms are small, but clean. If you're staying for a week, and plan on staying in your room for a period of time, this may not be the place for you. After two days, the bathroom became a little trying, for there really is not a lot of space to put your toiletries, when getting ready, in the morning. The hotel has a nice hot tub in the back, which is fenced in. They have a table and lounge chairs around this area. On the other side is a gardent area with several seating areas, which we utilized, while there. They do serve breakfast and dinner at the hotel. We ate breakfast, one morning, and it was very good, and inexpensive. The hotel has a lot of history, which can be seen throughout the lobby area, and if the Clark Gable room is unoccupied, the staff will be happy to show it to you. It is definitely worth seeing.

Dear Guest,

We thank you for your stay, and we are very glad to hear you and your group enjoyed your stay!

Our staff was pleased to assist you with all your needs. Our location is excellent as we are located in the heart of South Beach, yet away from all the noise. Our hotel is a calm oasis for our guest after a long walk in the city.

We apologize that we failed to offer you the different types of rooms we have. Our Queen Size bed is the smallest room we have in the whole property. We have rooms that accommodate everyone perfectly ranging from King Size beds to Superior rooms and Junior Suites.

We hope you come back once again and make it a tradition to stay here for many more years to come.

Warm Regards,

This was a nice little place and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were small, but very clean. They have a nice garden area where you can sit and enjoy a beverage. They have a beautiful spa area in the back. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast but did not have dinner there. It is in easy walking distance to the beach and shopping areas. I would definitely stay there again. If you chose to stay there, ask to see the Clark Gable room, it is definitely something to see.

We hope that next time you stay with us you have a chance to dine at Pied a Terre since we are certain you would enjoy it as well.

We are delighted to show our guest the Clark Gable room if it is available of course; as it is truly a historic landmark.

I've been staying here for years... They've put alot of effort and money into it over the past 5 years - it looks better each time I go, though the prices are rising a bit... Still a great value... Great location, one block from beach and from Lincoln... A block from Delano... Simple rooms and common areas... But really good - quiet and pleasant... Family hotel...

Room Tip: Aoid rooms by the bck / fire stairs as those doors are noisy unless they fixed them...

Recently stayed at this hotel based on other's experiences at this hotel. I was truly pleased with the room, the staff, and location of the hotel. The hotel is definitely an older hotel. It has a great deal of character and first impressions from the outside may be deceiving. We were two couples travelling together and totally loved our stay at the hotel.
A personally addressed thank-you letter in an envelope greeted us inside our room. I can't recall the bigger chains providing that type of distinction. They provided two bottles of evian water and a bowl of fruit. There were so many little things that set this hotel apart from others. Even the toiletries in the washroom were of excellent quality. This hotel is all about fine attention to detail. Experiencing this gem is the only way to describe an excellent example of customer service. All the staff were excellent. Patrick definitely shined in our minds.
The most important item to note was that I an excellent night's sleep both days. I thank everyone who posted honest reviews and allowed me to also enjoy an amazing weekend, at an amazing hotel.
