"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
"Close to beach"
Amazing staff. Very nice people. Amazing view around You. Very comfortable hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
A-1 staff. they do whatever they can to make your stay a great one.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
there were some problems with the cleaning staff, house keeping late. but we were there just to rest. so it was acceptableGenuine 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.

"wont stey there ever again"
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
"Nice boutique hotel, great location"
The room was clean and charming. The staff was super nice. The location was fantastic. I would stay there again.Genuine Expedia 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
"great service terrible condition"
Extra friendly service, great location, just terrible condition of rooms needs major remodeling and make over, also pictures are not accurate they show pics of how they want the hotel to look not its actual conditionGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel was clean and right in front of the ocean."
my only problem was with my ac unit in the room, it was not working properly so the room would get warm from time to time.Genuine Expedia guest review
Our stay at the Cavalier was outstanding. the location was perfect and the staff was helpful. The room is very outdated but not a big issue since we spent very little time in the room. We'll be back next year in the same hotel in the same room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to the beach and friends"
It was terrible. The sheets and comfortet were old and worn out.....there was no hot water pressure in the bathroom sink....my television didn't work....No Cable for the 2 night stay. Just terrible. WILL NEVER STAY THERE AGAINGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was clean, nice area and staff. It's a good choice to stay for a weekend. Nice cozy and cheap. So the rest of the money is for pleasure. Ill be back to the same hotel if necessary. My frien that went with us stayed in An ex penciled one but doesn't have to envy anything.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The Cavilier was great"
My room was big with a nice king siz bed. I couldn't figure out how to make the TV work but I was in Miami Beach so I wasn't planning to watch TV anyway. The location is great with the beach in front, the restaurants, clubs, and stores at walking distance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was very noisy, bad insulation on walls, bathroom was kinda out dated.... Would never stay there again...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Booked for 1 night because we were arriving late. This is the worse hotel. we could not even stay and left immediatiely after entering the room and went to the hotel we had booked for the bulk of our trip. The bedspread had cigarette hole burns and looked as if it had never been cleaned. EVER!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"worse motel ever."
The worse hotel ever. No queen size bed which they advertised. They advertised free cocktail, but hotel doesn't have a bar. Bathtub so filthy, we couldn`t even step it. AC is centralized and cannot be controlled individually. TV is 12 inches and so old, still uses vcr. Everything advertised was false.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just say no."
Dirty, dingy, don't. There is not much more to say, but they are making me. Just stay away.Genuine Expedia guest review
New management has taken over and hopefully it gets better I wouldn't recommend until turn over process is complete am surprised this place is licensed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap, centralized but run down..."
Great location but the hotel is run down. Needs a major overhaul. Ate breakfast next door every day at the Carlyle and didnt take a cab my entire trip since the hotel is so well located.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Expedia's pictures are WRONG"
Expedia's pictures of this hotel are the COMPLETE opposite of what it really looks like. The staff were nice and helpful, but unfortunately the hotel itself is DISGUSTING. I originally booked for 2 people, but at the last minute, 2 other people booked flights and were going to stay in the room with us. So they were going to charge us $30 per person […] per day for the 2 extra people, but they only charged us for 1 person. But still, that was overpaying. The hotel is extremely dirty and old. We slept on top of towels and clothes because the beds were horrendous. However, the location is a prime spot, so I guess that's what you're paying for- to be close to everything.

"don't book for the rooms"
We were looking for a room for one night prior to leaving for Key West. Thank goodness for the location right on Sobe, otherwise we would have considered sleeping in the car. For what we paid it was a wash.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
NEVER AGAIN!! WHEN WE FIRST ARRIVED THE ROOM WAS THE SIXE OF MY CLOSET WITH DOUBLE BEDS IN IT.. WE COULDNT EVEN WALK IN BETWEEN THEM.. WE REQUESTED A DIFFERENT ROOM BECAUSE THAT WAS NOT WHAT WAS DISPLAYED ON THE WEBSITE PICTURES.. AND WE ASKED HER ABOUT THE PICTURES AND SHE SAID THEY TOOK A PICTURE OF THEIR BEST ROOM THAT DOESNT MEAN THATS WHAT WE WERE […] GETTING.. SO SHE PUT US IN A DIFFERENT ROOM THAT WAS ALITTLE BIGGER BUT DISGUSTING AS WELL.. THE BATHROOM TUBES WERE GROSS!!!!!! I DIDNT EVEN WANT TO SHOWER IN IT I PUT A TOWEL DOWN TO STAND ON!!!! i WOULD NOT ADVISE ANYONE TO STAY HERE ITS DIGUSTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was disgusting. The bath tub was the most unsanitary unusable tub I have ever seen. The bedding made you uneasy in terms of resting since it appeared to be second or maybe even third hand and had stains beyond belief. Floors were unswept. Just nothing good to say at all. Rate was totally over priced.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"More like a hostel than a Hotel."
The place is a dump on a great location. The lobby and service left ALOT to be desired. The staff was friendly but seemed overwhelmed. We were told the hotel was under new management. The AC and lights didn't work properly and blankets and comforters were old (meaning marks, holes..gross!) On our 2nd day we didn't get towels because they said they ran […] out so we had to wait until the afternoon when they'd have clean ones again. And the hotel was super noisy too- you can hear everything so we did not sleep as we kept getting woken up by drunk people in the hallways, coming back to their room, etc. Definitely not worth it for the price, would not stay here again.

"Seen Better Days!"
This hotel has definitely seen better days. It would be more appropriately priced between $90-$100 a night. There were multiple areas of the hotel that were just filthy. Could they at least just run a vacuum on the stairs? Then you wouldn't get hit immediately with the stale funk of the place. The sheets seemed clean, but those ratty comforters from […] the 80s were definitely gross. I pulled it off the bed and had to remove long hairs from the sheets. At least the bathroom was somewhat updated.....super tiny, like you can't close the door without hitting your knees tiny...You might want to be sure you have a few extra towels in your luggage. There were only 2 in the bathroom. I over heard a staff member tell another guest, after the guest asked for another towel, "This is the last one". Really, in the whole hotel. Pretty sad........ I hope it can recover. The location is awesome. Directly on the beach, but north of all the SO. Beach noise and crazyiness. Will most likely not stay there again.

"It deserves a 2 star"
Location is excellent but the room was not very inviting. Floor was dirty and it looks like the cover sheets are not being washed for days. The AC is blasting that I was freezing cold. The thermostat in the room never worked. I complained and they said the AC is centrally controlled. Will never stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This could very well be the worst hotel I have ever stayed in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I liked to be across the beach"
The hotel was horrible... TV was not working, The mattress was most likely 20 years old... sheets gross,,, no towels,,, noiseIGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was not a pleasant experience to say the least. Left early as we could not take staying here another night, broken toilet, worn bedding etc. the bathroom was falling apart literally! Please choose another hotel!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, otherwise a total dump"
Great location for the beach, but a bit of a walk from Lincoln Road Mall. Apart from the location and a reasonable price, this place is a total dump. The rooms are disgusting and totally unmaintained. The sheets and towels are covered with suspicious stains, and they don't even change them when they "clean" your room. Also, there is really no functioning […] air conditioning. When we asked about the sheets being dirty, the guy at the front desk said, and I quote, "dirty, no. But stains ... maybe" with an attitude I can only describe as very "cavalier". I would avoid this place if you can. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was very convenient to stay at since I was going to the South Beach Food and Wind Fest. The hotel is not fancy.. rooms moderate in decor, but comfortable. I would definitely stay here again if the price is right. This year it was very reasonable. One free drink per guest was a nice perk..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Leaves much to be desired"
The staff was nice, but the room was old and dingy. Not to mention, it wasn't ready on time. My wife's comment was "Thanks for bringing me to the South Beach Food & Wine Fest but let's never stay at this hotel again." That pretty much sums it up.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Never staying again"
My staff stayed here and had a very bad experience. Front desk wouldnt give blankets, didnt clean rooms, cavalier staff gave horrible customer service. Good location for the food & wine festival but for the same price I will put them up at the hotel Eva next year with great service, clean and updated rooms and great location. Will not recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel if u use it for sleeping"
The hotel is super run down, but if you need a cheap place to stay so you can have tons of fun in south beach then this is it. The place is clean, it's just super old and in need of a face lift.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"South Beach Hotel"
All the hotels in South Beach are old and the rooms are small, but comparatively, this was as good as others we have stayed at. It was a good value for the cost.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Generally the hotel was good. It was not superb but I got what I wanted out of it. There were beds, hot water, AC and a TV for a cheap price. The service at times was good but wasn't at others. Altogether it was a good deal for a cheap price in a good location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location, Not Much Else"
First off, even though I was pre-paid on Hotels.com, they took both my ID and my Credit Card and made a copy of both of them, which I find distasteful. There is never a reason to copy anyone's credit card, it just leads to possible identity theft (especially when a copy of the person's drivers license is on it as well!!!). Why they require a deposit […] when the room is pre-paid is beyond me, there is absolutely nothing to steal in the rooms. They advertise that all rooms have CD players, alarm clocks, and refrigerators - none of this is true! There are no alarm clocks, CD players, or refrigerators in any rooms according to other guests staying there, and there were certainly none of these things in my room. I left my travel alarm clock at home thinking that there would be an alarm clock in the room, and to top things off, I NEVER received the Wake Up Calls that I ordered. As such, I had to buy another travel alarm clock so that I would not miss my very early morning flight home. I detest when hotels advertise amenities that they don't have, as it makes pre-trip planning problematic. Because there are loads of other hotels in this area for around the very same price range, I can not recommend this hotel, for the reasons cited above, as well as the fact that the rooms need some serious updating and a major scrubbing, and the place stunk of marijuana the entire stay.

The only reason to stay at this hotel is for the location. Old and dirty rooms that I just did not feel comfortable in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
If you are looking for a dirty, run down shanty town style shack filled with a rude staff that barely speak fluent English, feel free to throw your money away here. It bothered me greatly that the staff wasn't fluent in English and was rude, unhelpful, dismissive and flippant. I understand most of Miami has English as a second language and I love a […] pretty accent but please do actually speak FLUENT English at the front desk rather than simply be a pretty face. The overall upkeep was poor with dingy walls, dusty decore and tired flooring. The doors and walls are thin so noise is ongoing. The linens were filthy, the comforter was ripped, wrinkled and smelled. Every single blind and curtain was broken. The shower head offered a trickle of water that could barely wash the shampoo from my hair. Half of the lamps did not function. There was no clock at all. There was no "Do Not Disturb" sign. The only plus is, in keeping with its dismal condition, the place is cheap. I'd say it rates one half of one star. It is an awesome location that would be a gem if renovated and restaffed.

"Gross and Ugly place STAY AWAY."
I have stayed extensively throughout the Miami and would say this was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The most unfriendly staff, disgustingly dirty room, AC broken,Dirty bathroom , Uncleaned linen , Disgusting rooms i would not stay here even for free. nothing good there . Yong man at check in was nice and friendly but could only offer another […] dirty disgusting room . SICK i wish they can be removed from this site. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was only there for 2 nights so I figured I'd try it out. BIG MISTAKE. When i arrived to check in the guy behind the counter said hello and walked away. He came back FIFTEEN minutes later and took nearly a half hour to check me in. He then explained that my room door was broken and that I would have to use a house key. (not that big a of a deal) When […] I got in the room I noticed right away that the walls were paper thin and that the woman hacking a lung sounded like she was right in my face. I turned the TV on so I didnt have to listen to hear and she pounded on the adjoining door to turn the TV down. (3pm) The next morning, i requested some towels since the only gave me ONE. Never happened even after 2 requests. Arriving back to the room later that night to a room that was never cleaned and still no towels. The beds must be 40 years old and unpleasant to sleep on. Look elsewhere before staying here. There is more comfort on the beach! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
