"paying for location, not quality!"
hotel restroom floor was wet & was nasty. not gonna go into all the details, but not recommended.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel staff member gave our room key to another guest and the other guest came into our room un-announced while I was changing clothes. It was horrible. Also very, very noisy,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It needs a little bit more renovation specially elevator but overall excellent hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
My mom and I stayed here after coming back froma cruise as part of her birthday trip. I usually stay at this hotel when in Miami. The only issue I had with this stay was that the tub in the room looked dirty but when I asked to have it cleani realized it was just stained. But overall I had a great stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ideal location for South Beach."
This was the second time I've stayed at the Cavalier. The hotel is under new ownership and management. The entire hotel was in much better condition that our first stay. The staff has made a good effort to make the rooms nicer and more comfortable. The drinks were a great deal. The food was good and at a good price. You just can't beat the location […] of this hotel for the price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location, location, location"
This hotel is the best price for the location. The room was small but very clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice location. Can't go wrong with that."
Nice location (13th St and Ocean drive). Parking garage is <2 mins walk. Polite and helpful staff. Low average rooms. Unimpressive. The bed sheets were clean. There was an odd odor in the room but I was too tired to take a note. And yes, noisy room. Very noisy till early hours of morning. But it was still doable. People looking for quite or wanting […] to impress may want to look elsewhere. But for the price, I might go back there. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"worse place ever"
this hotel is run down, a/c never cooled are room, mold in show, nasty curtains and bed spreads. You couldnt get any bottle water or anything to drink if the bar in the lobby was closed. No coffee offered. I would not recommend this place to one person, it was over priced and worse then a dive hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
The only thing that this hotel has is location....that's all!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
There is nothing much to expect from this hotel. For younger couple on a budget and who just need a place to shower and recharge then this will do. The only good thing about this hotel is it's location. Right in the center of all the action on South Beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
The thin walls are understandable, hotel was built in 1930's. However the comforters/duvet's don't need to be that old. The really disgusting thing is that some of the staff, (one bald bartender/waiter in particular) are incredibly rude, to the point of ruining my stay... internet didn't work for more than five minutes without cutting out....Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not what you're paying for"
Hotel looks nothing like the pictures they have on the Internet it looks like an old apartment in Brooklyn new yorkGenuine Expedia guest review
Very old hotel,not clean and will never stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Location was great, but that's about it...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great stay! The staff was courteous and friendly! They upgraded me to a suite overlooking the beach. As I departed they gave me a refreshing glass of ice water! Wow ! I will definitely return againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband and I stayed in the Cavalier for two days. The rooms were fine. I had no complaints. We asked the check in clerk to put us in a room away from the outside noise and she did. The bartender made the BEST mojitos! The staff was very polite and friendy. The only drawback is the noisy neighbors...the walls are very thin and we could hear everything […] they were saying.

I really never feel the need to “rate” a hotel, but this was a bad one. Rooms and bathroom is as big as a small box. If you want to get a good night sleep then don’t stay at this hotel, between the beds that were so uncomfortable I felt like my back was broken and the loud music of the club next to us we got NO SLEEP. When I checked in I had to sign […] a document and the agent went over the document with me and said “well # 2, 5 & 7 don’t apply to you, management recently changed and the new management doesn’t have that rule anymore.” My question to him was, how hard is it to update the word document to reflect the new rules??? He didn’t know what to say. I also asked for beach towels at 9:55 am – “we don’t have any until 10am” went back at 10:15am and he handed me 2 towels (we had 3 in our party) he then proceeded to tell me they had no more. Really it is 10 am and you already handed out all our towels?????? We couldn’t even use a bathroom towel because they are as big as my head let alone my body. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best bang for your buck on Ocean Dr."
There were many negative reviews about this property and I am glad that I did not let them deter me from staying here. For the price/location, there is no better deal. YOu are on Ocean Dr in the heart of the action for a fraction of the price of other 'nicer' hotels. If you are expecting service or amenities like the Fountainbleau or even a Hampton […] Inn, you need to set your expectations a little lower. This is South Beach. The hotels are older, and if you desire this level of luxury on Ocean Dr. you will easily be paying 5 times the price of this hotel. DirectTv was standard in the room, they provided towels for the beach, everyone was friendly and the room was clean. No complaints here! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
rooms need a major update and cleaningGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was very nice and pleAsant but the hotel is very out dated they definetely need to fix it upGenuine Expedia guest review
"GOOD ANTIQUE HOTEL"
HOTEL WAS FAIRLY CLEAN BUT BEDSPREAD SEEM SO OLD THAT THEY HAD A LOT OF LOOSE FUZ THAT GET ON CLOTHES WHEN SITTING ON BED. BUT OVERALL FOR RESTING THIS HOTEL IS OK. GREAT LOCATION NEAR THE BEACH AND ALSO AWESOME RESTAURANTS NEARBY. SERVICE WAS VERY COURTEOUS AND PROMPTLY RENDERED.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK for the price."
Friendly staff, broken bed. Classic 'you get what you pay for'. Overall, it was fine and what I expected , again, 'for the price'.Genuine Expedia guest review
If you are looking for a hotel based on location this is the hotel for you. The rooms are tiny and the service was minimal. For the five days I stayed there they didn't clean my room once.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is located on ocean dr across the street from the beach and that's the best thing about this hotel. The service was barely decent but the staff was nice. I've stayed at the cavalier a few times because it's relatively cheap and I don't ever spend much time in the room but this was my last time. Entire hotel is freezing cold and there's no wireless […] signal. Almost all the rooms are suites so you can hear everything in the adjacent room; no sense of privacy. House keeping only came once in the 3 nights that I stayed there. Like I said, it's cheaper than most of the other hotels on ocean drive so I guess I got what I paid for.

"hotel on ocean Dr."
the hotel was alright, it was in a great location, the room was small the staff was nice but the room walls were so thin u could hear everything that the person was saying next store to you,it was like they were in the room with us,needless to say i didn't get much sleep cuz of the loud rude ppl next to us, but other then that it was ok.

Nice staff but dirty and I will never go back again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Little Hotel"
The location on the beach was fabulous! Close to shopping and night life. This hotel was very clean and functional. Old school Miami look, a comfortable basic room for a night a place you would not hang out all day because there is so much to do on south beach. I would stay there again, the price was right. Sincerely, Reyne CarneyGenuine Expedia guest review
"In the middle of all the Miami Beach Action"
My boyfriend and I stayed for 2 nights due to a trip required for my architectural studio class for my graduate degree. We were there to check out the old Miami Herald Building Site. Anyways, we found this hotel on hotels.com because it was moderately priced and looked alright from the pictures. The guy at the front desk Noel, he was the best! Very […] personable and ready to help you out to let you know where to go for anything you needed. We had a beautiful room facing the ocean, the furniture is obviously from like the 50's but the room will do the job for a couple nights. They had Direct TV in the rooms, but the bed was a little hard for us and you might want to request a couple extra pillows. We are not too picky so it was pretty nice. However the floor was all tile in the room and a little sticky so bring your slippers. It is located on Ocean Dr. in the middle of Miami beach, we walked to local restaurants for dinner both nights and there was a Starbucks around the corner for our morning coffees. They have a small restaurant and bar on the first floor like most of the hotels do in that area but we never ate there and neither did many other people. But there are great local places and the neighborhood is great, your not afraid to walk around at night or anything like that. We enjoyed our short stay there for sure, Thanks to Noel.

First the valet informed me that since I was handicapped parking was free in a blue spot in front of the motel then assisted me in parking. Motel desk did all they could do to make our stay delightful even looking up History of the building and getting all information that we asked for. Friendly greeting every shift and every time. Restaurant was lacking […] in breakfast and deserts but dinner and lunch was good, large portions and cooked to specifications and tried to accommodate special diet. When our room developed a problem they addressed it immediately and moved us and upgraded our room for the hassle of moving. Enjoyed our stay tried to change our tickets to stay longer. Night life is close and loud on weekends but part of the Beach experience and worth the disruption. Rooms we had over looked the beach.... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the beach"
Room small none of the outlets worked never answer phn at front deskGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not the Cavalier I'm use to!"
I use to stay at the Cavalier all the time. This time, maybe new management came in because the front desk wasn't as friendly or attentive. I never got a Free drink ticket (they use to offer to new guests as a thank you) & the hotel was not as busy as before so I'm surprised I wasn't offered to eat there or have a drink special. Nice hotel just not […] what I'm use to for service. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent hotel right in front of South Beach"
We stayed here for 2 nights during Labor Day weekend. The room was clean and fresh. The staff was friendly. Everything was good until we realized that there was a continuous loud sound (probably a generator) coming from the floor above which happened to be a spoilsport the entire night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice location, bad hotel"
We went to stay in Miami Beach of just one night after a show/dinner and decided to stay there instead of driving back home. We wanted something unexpensive, as we would only stay there for one night and would not enjoy the hotel that much. I found this hotel and loved the location. In the end I think its way too expensive given the terrible facilities […] it has. The hotel is old and the rooms are not nice at all. It smells and you cant control the AC. We had requested a one queen bedroom and got a two bed, they said they didnt have any one bed available and said we could just put the two beds together! The staff was nice but the room was very dissapointing. We didnt have a good night, as we could hear people screaming and walking by outside. My recommendation would be: Dont stay here, if you can avoid it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Florida 2013 Trip"
Major advantage of the hotel it's location. Quite classy hotel is in old building, which adds character of the place. The only caveat is restaurant downstairs which is seriously overpriced, but there are plenty to choose from north and south along Ocean Dr.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a good experience!!!"
Very stuffy and uncomfortable air quality in the rooms. Bathrooms weren't cleaned to perfection. I slept in my sweat suit and didn't get under the covers. The only plus was the restaurant and bar in the hotel and the location. That was probably the only reason I booked because of the location and price. But hey u pay less u GET less!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
No air conditioning. Had stains on the comforter. Showers worked when they wanted to and the toilets had a hard time flushing. If your a germ freak dont go hereGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and clean"
I really enjoyed the Cavalier. Fantastic location and room was very clean with recently updated bathroom. I would stay there again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lemonade Outta Lemons"
We lost running water in our room, which was due to a city problem & hotel management upgraded us from a double to a suite at no charge. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the host outside was very friendly & beautiful. We had a blast, the location is great, would certainly consider staying here againGenuine Expedia guest review

"Perfect spot to crash at last minute"
The hotel is located in the perfect spot, right across the street from the beach!!.I booked this hotel at the last minute, even though the reviews sounded terrible. We arrived earlier then check in time. I didn't know there was a check-in early fee, but the girl that helped us said that she wasnt going to charge us, which was pretty nice of her! Thanks! […] The room was clean. We had dinner in the hotel twice, the food was good. The staff was great! For a last minute trip this hotel was definitely the hotel to go to!

"Its a beach hotel"
It's fun and what i expected of a beach hotel, or the other reviews worried me but it's not bad. It's old and its across the beach. You can't complaint. Maybe I wouldn't go here for a honey moon or a romantic getaway but I would go with my friend or a quick getaway with my gf.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The cleaning ladies spent all day in the room next door hanging out an talking they did not come try and clean until around 430 to 5 pm when your back from the beach and ready to nap in orde to enjoy the nightlife. The front desk staff was very helpful and friendlyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cavalier, end of Ocean Drive."
I stayed at the Cavalier for three days. I was a little disappointed when I arrived because the hotel was at the end of Ocean DriveGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ok for one night...great location"
The Cavalier is located on Ocean drive so the location is good. It is located near all the bars, restaurants and clubs. The hotel is good for 1 night...the rooms are small and remind me of a dorm. The walls are paper thin and you can hear people from the outside. Its ok..but nothing to write home about. Very old building and the elevator is scary. The […] paint is chipping inside the bathroom. You can also hear people late night who are returning to their room. Overall is ok for just one night...but no more than that. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, vintage hotel"
It was just me and my husband for two nights in South Beach. We're not exactly the clubbing type, but we loved how close the Cavalier was to the beach, great restaurants, and shopping. If you're looking for something upscale, this is not the place. It's an old hotel with old rooms. They keep it clean, and the staff are courteous. They have beach towels […] available and free wifi.

Place is a mess. 1st the cable was out of service. 2nd went in the room to drop off my bags and the door was jammed had to wait almost an hour for the maintnace crew to unlock the door. 3rd the claim to have 2 queen size beds bull one full size bed. 4th no pool in this place this spot is in south beach with no pool. I truly dont and wont go back here. […] I took my bags after the door was unlocked and walked to another hotel on 14st with all i say all the acomodations even breakfast in the morning. For the same price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Small, but convenient"
It was small and aging, but the service was impeccable. I was under the impression I purchased a kitchenette, but upon arrive realized they didn't exist. The front desk did a very good job of satisfying my needs. It was not very clean, was small, but great value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
