The service was fantastic! I felt welcomed from the minute I walked in the door.

This hotel is very much in tuned with customer service, they really want you to enjoy your stay. The room I had was a little small but very clean! This hotel is a great value based on the research I did for the area. two blocks to the beach 3-4 blocks to Ocean Ave. Great location, if you don't want to pay the price to be right on the beach. Was very impressed with how clean the property was..."Nice small hotel."

This was my second trip to South Beach, I thought the Cadet was an Excellent hotel, 5 minute walk from both the beach and lincoln road - the staff are very very helpful and friendly as well. The room my partner and I were in was very modern and clean!

I ordered this hotel after reading admiring reviews at this site.

The hotel is really worthy the price you pay, 100%. It is small, clean, well-furnished and is in excellent location.

Location: one block from the ocean, two blocks from Lincoln road, one of the main attractions in SoBe, 6 blocks from Art Deco district. Very convenient.
Rooms: very clean, good quality new linen, has iron with ironing board, TV, very quiete a/c + we did not hear any noise from the streets at nights.
Price: very decent as compared to other hotels in the area.
Staff: is OK, helpful. Keep your luggage btw your check-out and time when you leave, order taxi for you. Minuses: I wish staff would say "hi" as you enter the lobby, not stare in their computers.
Other: free fruit in the lobby.

Resume: Excellent value for money.

The Cadet was exactly what my wife and I had hoped it to be. It was very clean, and the perfect size for two people. You can tell the owners have really stepped it up a level and are doing a great job. Walking to the lobby, it had a cool classic feel. The new sauna in the garden was a nice touch. It's located near Lincoln Road, and block away from the beach, so it’s quiet off the main drags but close enough. Thanks to Matias and Diego for their help along with the rest of the gang...they did a great job.

My 9 year old son and I stayed at the Cadet as we were attending a wedding. We had pre-paid for our room in advance and after reading many great reviews on the hotel... we were in for a shocking surprise.
This hotel really lacks in customer service and they are only interested in making money. The front desk had clearly made a mistake of charging my credit card for the $100 in case of "incidentals", and then removing the charge. This incompetency, lead to me and my son being shut out of our room after the wedding at 12 midnight... Mind you, I had a 9 year old child with me and the front desk refused to let us retire to our room, even after the room was already pre-paid. The dummy working the front desk insisted that I pay the $100 dollars for "incidentals", which mind you, was paid and debited from my account and the moron insisted that it didn't go through.
I will never stay at this hotel again and don't recommend families with children stay here either. They do not care for the welfare of a child. They just care that they make the mighty buck. Instead of letting me take care of the $100 incidental fee in the morning, they locked me out of the room until a payment was made.
They don't look at the big picture... this place is run by morons. Plain and simple, do NOT stay here.
