A bit of packing and sorting before heading out to a nice Italian restaurant for our last dinner.

Historical Traveler Reviews Cadet Hotel Miami Beach
I had to go to Maimi at the last minute for a meeting. Mid-March is always a tough time to find a reasonably priced room in Maimi Beach. We found the Hotel Cadet (checked out the tripadvisor.com reviews) and decided to book.
Charming and historical
After reading about the Cadet on Trip Advisor, I decided to try it out during a convention in Miami. The hotel is charming, clean as a pin (though the rooms were very small) and true to the Art Deco environment of South Beach. Clark Gable stayed here in the 1940's.
The service, though, was sporadic. Had to ask for towels, soap, etc.
Some of the front desk personnel were friendly and went out of their way to be helpful and accommodating: others were downright rude.
I didn't have time for the breakfast but the patio was quiet and private due to a large hedge surrounding it. Next time!
The service won't dissuade me from staying again, but one more time and we'll see.
A nice surprise!
The hotel didn't fail to live up to the reviews on this site. It is small, but the rooms are very clean. The location is great; 1 block from the beach, 2 blocks from the Lincoln pedestrian mall and about 7 blocks from the art deco district. Last, but certainly not least, this hotel is a great deal that would be very hard to beat. We would definitely stay here again on a return trip to South Beach.
Helpful staff and clean room
A friend suggested the Cadet when, on short notice, we learned that our accomodations in Miami had fallen through. This place is a gem! The staff was helpful and polite, the room was clean and bright (our room faced a quiet alley), the complimentary breakfast was an extra we did not expect, and it was only two blocks from Lincoln Road and the beach.
I highly recommend this place.
I just spent one night at the Cadet whilst attending a conference in Miami. The location is great (one block from the beach, the Delano, and Lincoln street). I only paid $100 for the room so I wasn't expecting Sagamore type quality. The Hotel is small and nicely designed/furnished. I stayed in a room on the first floor but would pick one on the second floor if you are staying more than two nights.
My boyfriend and I stayed here from Dec 30th to Jan 2nd- their busiest time of the year. After reading so many horror stories about other lower to mid-priced south beach hotels we were happy to find that our room was very clean and newly decorated. The room was small but the bed had a feather comforter and the floors were nicely finished and wooden--things you certainly would not see at any chain hotel. The patio area was private and beautiful and free breakfast is served from 7:30 to 10:30; the other reveiwer that said the breakfast is $5.50 must be mistaken because I ate waffles and fruit free of charge in the cadet's private backyard. The only complaint I had was that it took about three hours one night to receive 1 washcloth. However, their shortage of towels was easily forgiven because nothing else really went wrong. Though I noticed that in beginning of the day I had 2 washcloths and when I came back to the room at the end of the day they were gone, which I thought to be shady on the hotels part. But, as I said before towels were their only problem and compared to the others that could have arisen it was not a big deal. A definite good place to stay for the money.
Great small establishment
Nov 28, 2003- My husband and I stayed at the Cadet before our cruise.
The hotel is in a convenient location and our room was spacious. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for an affordable stay in a pricey district! I would note that it didn't appear to be wheelchair accessible.
I was in Miami Beach for five days to attend a conference at the Fontainebleau. The Cadet is a block off Collins and the busses run every few minutes; cost is $1.25, so it was easy to get to my meetings.
The Cadet was clean, charming, and close to the beach, inexpensive places to eat (unlike the Fontainebleau), and the Lincoln Mall -- great shops, restaurants and people watching. The walls are a bit thin, but the other guests were quiet enough, even on the weekend. Also, breakfast is NOT included (not a B&B), though a "continental" style breakfast is available for $5.50. I would stay there again.
Small and sweet
My wife and I ust returned from a three night stay in South Beach at the newly renovated Cadet Hotel. Great value, warm and welcoming small hotel ,ideally located. The rooms were small but very nicely appointed.
Parking was available for $20.00 per day on a first come basis A small breakfast and free newspaper were provided in the encosed and outdoor courtyard...very European. My only objection was that the TV offered very limited channels and mediocre reception. I'd stay there again for sure
The Charming Cadet
I've been staying at the Cadet for years, and while it was always convenient and comfortable, it is now quite charming. Recent renovations have made the rooms a pleasure, light and bright although small, with nice amenities. The lobby area has been refreshed and it's nice to come home to the welcoming staff and warm flicker of candlelight. Breakfast on the patio remains a delight as it has been through the years, very European. Great value, extraordinary location.
