Historical Traveller Reviews of Cadet Hotel
perfect location, great stafffrom fantaztic
When we got back our room was perfectly ready. Very clean and chilled from the air condition. I didn't feel my room was small at all. You can comfortably walk around without bumping into each other. we had 2 twin beds, a tv in a cabinet, 2 desks, and an average size washrooom. I thought we were suppose to ge hardfloors, but we didn't. we got a room with carpet. Maybe because our room was the internet special (only $65). You can upgrade to a nice one for $80. It didn't really matter though. You're only there to sleep. All you really need is a clean place, which this hotel is.
But the best part about this hotel is its location. Two blocks from lincoln mall, one block from collins ave, 3 blocks from ocean drive, 3 blocks from Crobar, and Two blocks from walgreens. Trust me, you'll be glad. I went there every day when ever i needed something. And also, two blocks from the best spot on the beach. Just a little hint, topless sun bathing is acceptable in south beach, and my oh my do they know how to sun bath. But please, not matter how tempted you are, don't make an ass of yourself by filming or taking pictures of topless women. I saw on 4 seperate occassions, drunk, white, middle age, fraternity type guys with beer in one had and a camera or camcorder on the other hand, walk by and stop, to film or take pictures of nude women infront of everyone.
I had no problems getting whatever I wanted if the hotel had it. I borrowed scissors, got extra towels, they even offered free soda to us cause they were doing maintainence in the lobby. During our checkout, they were nice enough to call a cab for us. I would stay here again when i go back, simply because i know exactly what to expect and that the staff will meet my expectation.
Great place - really enjoyed our stay!from A TripAdvisor Member
The parking space outside is well worth it, even at $10/day. There are 3-4 spaces; if you don't get one, you shouldn't have any trouble parking on the streets nearby, at a cost of $1/hour (enforced 9 AM - midnight). At least, we had no trouble in July -- it might be harder during peak tourist season around Christmas.
Rooms are smaller than the "average" American suburban/convention-center hotel, but pretty standard size for an urban American hotel. There's still plenty of space, and you are in the heart of South Miami Beach.
The morning breakfast is expensive, but given my sleeping habits, this was a moot point. :-) If you want good, cheap eats, just walk a block or two down Collins Avenue -- there's a great Cuban coffee stand, and a nice French-style bakery.
Despite being so close to the beaches and restaurants and shopping areas, the area around the hotel was quiet at night, so no worries when you need to sleep. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly, without being obtrusive.
All in all, a great stay -- definitely at the top of my list the next time I visit!

Top Local Tips for Miami
Breakfast Head down Ocean Drive until you find the restaurants offering breakfast for $4.25. Sit outside, linger and people watch. No one hurries you from your table when you are done with your meal.
Entertainment, eating Ckeck for events before you arrive. Plan in advance. There are many restaurants--most good. The most expensive are likely to be in the hotels or along Ocean Drive (South Beach). Use the Internet for information. It's your best friend. Be aware that most hotels in this area are old, but renovated. Some are not sufficiently renovated. If you have a friend down here, have them go the area and check, check, check. Price is not necessarily the best indicator of quality.
Lincoln rd. go to lincoln rd. and close your eyes when the credit card bill comes in the mail. haha
