“Hotel closed!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2012

We made our reservation in September 2011 on the recommendation of some friends. We should have read the reviews on TripAdvisor! We flew from Philadelphia the afternoon before our anticipated check in at the hotel. We retrieved a basically incomprehensible voice mail from a woman from the Sadigo
Court at our home number at 5:30 PM while we were in the airport. All we could understand on the voicemail was "Sorry....sorry". We called back as we were basically boarding the flight and she told us the hotel was closed by the city of Miami because " they are installing sprinklers ". There was no offer to find alternate housing. However she offered to send our credit card information to the Catalina Hotel but warned us they would charge us even if we didn't show. We refused her releasing pur credit card information. We flew to Florida not knowing where we would be staying for the three night we had booked at the Sadigo Court. The following morning we searched Priceline and Hotwire and eventually booked something for the next three nights. We, of course, went to the Sadigo Court when we were in town. There we found two copies of notices posted on the door from the Miami Fire Department closing the hotel on September 23, 2011! And we were never informed until the evening before our reservation and left to fend for ourselves! This was VERY unprofessional treatment. We, of course, will never book the Sadigo Court again.

Even though the price was reasonable and the location is great, I would never stay here again. My friends and I stayed here during Ultra Festival 2011. I was the one who booked the room (a King suite) but my friend got there before me so checked in for us. The concierge ( a woman who's name I cannot remember) showed my friend the studio, claiming that this is what we had reserved. She told my friend we could switch to the King suite (what we had reserved) for an additional fee. Knowing that we would not be able to find another place to stay during this busy weekend, we went along with it. The concierge was also very nosy, checking to see how many people were staying in the room and coming into our room and opening the closet while we were gone (she left the closet door open so we knew she had been in there). On our last night there, we were locked out of our room at 2 am and nobody was there to help us get in. We called the 24 hour line, and the guy told me to "sit tight" until the concierge would be there at 7am. There were people on drugs wandering around the building and this is not a very safe neighborhood, so luckily we had some friends staying at another hotel so we could stay with them until the morning. So to sum up, we felt very unwelcome, unsafe, and were conned into paying a higher fee than we had initially signed up for. I hope that if this place ever reopens it's with new, professional ownership who know how to run a hotel.

We stayed at Sadigo 4 years ago and we stayed very well. The location was perfect,100m from the beach and 10 minutes from Lincoln street, and rooms were very spacious and clean; but the management and the staff there had seemed a bit strange ….
This year we booked one suite from 03/12/2011 to 10/12/2011, but when we arrived, Saturday 03/12 at 7 p.m., we found the hotel shut down because the police and the Miami fire department closed this hotel the day before because of safety reasons. Nobody from the hotel warned us of this; simply we found on the front doors of the hotel a piece of paper with written “temporarily closed” (and the notification of fire department!). The city has been issuing a cease and desist order for the hotel since September 23rd. But, according to city officials, every time the red note is put on the door; the hotel takes it down and keeps operating.
So we have to find another place to stay, which wasn't very easy in the evening and during Art Basel Exposition.

Friends of mine who stayed here during the Art Basel week had to leave this place on friday december 2nd 2011 because the police and the miami fire department closed this hotel because of safety reasons and license problems. I was there and helped my friends (traveling with 18 month child) to find another place to stay, which wasn't very easy that friday evening! Hotel staff nor police were doing anything to help. CBS send reporters and they made an item on what happened in this hotel!

Our group booked the entire property for an annual meeting being held at the convention center. None of us had ever been to Miami, so booking was made "sight unseen" based on reviews and needs of our group. Suffice it to say, we found the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the main Miami Beach strip. The location was perfect (a mere block away from beach and convention center), the rooms were very spacious and clean, the area tranquil and quiet and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. Thank you Rod and Dee. Sure the property is old, but that's part of its appeal. The rustic-ness and soothing tropical courtyard give Sadigo its personality. After seeing where others associated with our convention stayed, I can honestly say that we, by far, had the best accomodations for location, quality, cleanliness and price. In addition, most of Miami Beach's main attractions are well within walking distance of the Sadigo. The only recommendation we have is regarding the breakfast. Many in our group would've like to have had some protein items included with the continental breakfast (ie: boiled eggs, cheese, coldcuts, etc.). In short, our stay was terrific and we would highly recommend the Sadigo.

We stayed here for 3 nights in October 2011. We were due to stay for 7. The room facilities were not as advertised and unfortunately were not given a ground floor suite as requested at booking. The room was for 5 people as was supposed to support self-catering. There were only a minimal amount for crookery (to little for 5 people) - nothing else, no cooking utensils, no pans, no drying towels etc. in addition, the cooker was disconnected so it couldn't be used. I wonder how we were supposed to use this 'hotel' for self catering? No explanation about the lack of cooking facilites was given at check-in. We experienced rain during our stay - inside! Both single beds got soaking wet as rained poured onto them from the ceiling when it rained. We decided to leave early and initially were refused a refund. (Be warned - FULL payment is taken on arrival). Booking.com were very helpful in helping get a refund, but even as we left and the refund had to be actioned thr staff were claiming that they could not remember how to do the refund and said it couldn't be done. Only by asking that management were called was the refund given as the member of staff involved suddenly re-called how to make a refund!! Oh and by the way the toilet didn't work.

Room Tip: Simple - tip - go elsewhere!

First the good points. The hotel is well located being close to the Art Deco district. The rooms are large and kept very clean. Nice outdoor area off living room . Lovely tropical garden
The not so good is that the kitchen is definitely not adequate. There are no utensils and just a small microwave. Not a full kitchen as advertised. Noise from upstairs is annoying particalarly late at night. Breakfast is not as good as other hotels. Very limited selection.
