“Absolutely delightful”
Reviewed February 18, 2009

A small, charming hotel in a great South Beach location two blocks from the beach. We were looking for small. It does not have all the services of a large upscale hotel but we didn't expect them. The property is meticulously maintained. Squeaky clean!! Beautifully decorated. The garden area for breakfast, reading, drinks is very peaceful even in the middle of the city. The Wall Street journal at our door every morning was a wonderful surprise. The staff was extremely attentive. The room was a deluxe with a kIng size bed, large lounge chair with ottoman, a small desk with chair and plenty of storage. The bathroom was much larger than expected with a dual head shower and spa goodies. Truly exceeded our expectations.

This hotel has a good location one block from the beach it's modern with all the expected features ,wood strip floors,good size bed, nice linen but you only get 3 feet around the bed to walk around. The bathroom is so small it covers around 6ftx4ft including the bath and the tiolet was so small a large american 16 stone plus man would not be able to use it. Trip advisors number one rating needs tobe revised.

I stayed at this hotel with my partner in Nov 2008 and had a lovely time. One member of staff was particularly helpful and printed off a list of what to do in the time that we were there with ticket prices and times for American football games for example. The hotel is really quaint - very Art Deco and Clark Gable once stayed there they had a beautiful photo of him in the lobby. The rooms were a little small, but clean and inviting and the breakfast not wonderful value for money but we were given free bottles of water and choclates every night and the hotel is situated in a wonderful location in the centre of South Beach which is a 5-10min walk away and 5mins from Lincoln Ave where all the shops and restaurants are. I would definately use this hotel again

We stayed at this quaint unique hotel for 2 nights 1 night prior and 1 night after our cruise. We absolutely loved the atmosphere, the cleanliness, the location and the fine service provided. It's in the heart of the Art Deco district just 1 block away from Miami Beach and 1 block away from Lincoln Ave. Yes, it's our opinion, but we'll be back at the Cadet Hotel again next time in Miami.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Great location for the price and staff were helpful in unloading car and pointing us in the direction of parking ($20 per 24 hours). We had asked for a room away from the renovations and we got one but it had a view of a wall and was a little dark. Room was very clean and housekeeping was good. However we did find the room a little on the small side. There were no facilities for making tea/coffee but a microwave and fridge were in the room. Bathroom was good with a good bbath/shower. Owners have spent a great deal of time on decorating and we would describe it as a boutique hotel in Europe. No where to sit outside apart from a very nice area by reception, however we were challenged when we took a glass of our wine out there which was a little embarrasing as we did not realise you could not do this. We thought it was a general outside sitting area.
Staff were friendly and helpful.
We would definitely stay here again and work out some way to make coffee in the microwave!!

Friendly staff and outstanding customer service. Little touches like personalized welcome notes, fresh strawberrys in the room followed later by chocoalats and bottled water. Before we left there was another personalized note left in the room thanking us for staying. This was followed up by an email once we returned home. The room was clean and it had a large closet with bathrobes. We were aware of some noise from the room above us but it was not too bad. Our only complaint was that the breakfast service did not start until 7:30 am which did not work out for us because we had an early flight home.
