Bottom line: Would I stay here at the Cadet Hotel again - yes I would!
Pros: Close to Lincoln Ave and the Beaches, nice clean hotel, great staff, beautiful bedrooms
Cons (in the Hotels control) - 1) The Doors to each room don't quite slam shut but when someone around you enters/leaves their room, you will definitely hear the door close/slam. The Hotel needs to have the doors close softly/gently similar to a Hotel. 2) The room I stayed in , the bathroom needed a paint job. You could also tell the tub was reglazed once and is in need of a reglaze. The grout in the shower stall, where the 2 walls meet, needed to be re-grouted as it was dirty/grimy (probably could not be cleaned at this pt. ) 3) The staff, when they were walking up and down the corridors could be much more quiet. There is no need to have their walkie talkies on full blast or talking loudly - especially on a Sunday AM!!
Other things: 1) To change the a/c, you do need to call the front desk. I did this and they were up in approx 5 min 2) there is some construction nearby which adds to the noise - it does look like the construction on one building is nearly done. 3) You are in the middle of things when staying at the Cadet! On a Fri/Sat night, you will undoubtedly heae people - especially at bar closing time.
