"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
"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.

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
"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.

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.

"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

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
"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
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
"Don't stay here"
We were suppose to have a suite facing the water, but when we arrived they said our reservation was for a regular King room. There were three of us, which means we needed a roll away bed for one of us. They wanted to charge us $35 extra for the bed, even though we already paid for a suite. The room was really old and dirty. There was the in the bed, […] the bedspread matched the curtains and appeared to be from the 70's. We tore all of the blankets off the bed and only used the sheets. The staff was rude. The location was great though, and if you stuck your head out of the window to the far left, you could see the beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The worst night in a hotel....ever!"
The staff was actually pretty nice upon check-in. However, as soon as I got into the room, I regretted making the reservation. I wish I would have read other reviews because this hotel is run down and down right filthy. The sheets had stains on them, the comforter was thread bare and I could feel the springs digging into my back through all the layers […] of the sheets, as I ended up sleeping in a sleeping bag on top of the covers. The ceiling fan was making a terrible noise, there was no air conditioning, no coffee maker, which the website claims. And to finish my experience, the vinyl curtains did nothing to block street noise and the worst, I could here every single word of the staff from the front desk as if I were standing right next to them. I thought that after they turned off the blaring techno at 11:30 pm, that I'd finally be able to sleep, but no dice. I ended up having to pay for two nights even though I checked out early. I would have had a better nights sleep in my car. I've stayed at hostels in better shape. Terrible, terrible, terrible! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Just entering the room for the first time you would just want to run away. The bed looked like somebody layed on top of it after it was made. Just plain disgusting. Went to check on the bathroom and after open the top there was one big YOU KNOW WHAT still there!!! Only reason room was used was because there was no other hotel available on the beach.

I have travelled extensively throughout the world and would say this was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The most unfriendly staff, disgustingly dirty room, AC broken, toilet leaked, not hot water in the shower, mould . Breakfast was genuinely inedible. I am truly amazed how bad this place is.... More they did not clean my room on the entire […] stay, when asked the front desk person they told me to complain to hotels.com and that the maid would not come back until monday!. the bathroom door would not close, the staff was too oblivious and inexperienced. i could put up with the fact that is an outdated place but the service is non existent.

"The cavalier should be shut down ASAP!"
Booked this hotel for one night and I couldn't even stay one hour. Everything went bad from check in. They messed up our room by "upgrading" to a king bed when we had booked two beds, it took them 30mins to check us in and the staff was rude. The hotel is completely disgusting, the rooms are dirty and out of style, there is no AC and it smells! I ended […] up booking another room at the Chesterfield which was a million times better than this piece of crap hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Looks like the room had not been updated since the 1940s. Linens paper thin, bed spreads frayed, old mattress, hairs/dirt on the floor of the room and bathroom. This was the second rooom. I moved out of the first room because it was uninhabitable and it didn't even have a phone. Wait staff ok. People in the hallway being loud until 4 am. Complained […] nothing done about it.

"DO NOT BOOKED IN THIS PLACE!!!!"
To hotel to be situated on Ocean drive, the principal avenue of south beach should be at least a place clean and upgraded, the walls looked like the were about to crack, the carpets smelled like a skunk, the room was HORRIBLE, the Tv didn't work at all, the bathroom had a leak and nobody fixed until the last day (we stayed 4 days). The valet parking […] was $25 and every time we needed our car we had to wait for about 30 minutes because nobody was answering when the front desk was trying to reach them. i do not recommend this place at all, we left 2am, a day before, just to not stay another night in that creepy place.

Hotel Takeover is needed for this hotel. Room service never came to clean room and distribute new bath clothes/ towels. When ask for bath clothes/ towels they did not have any clean.

"Cavailer- The Dirtiest Room I've Ever Seen"
I walked into my room and immediately called another hotel to book a room for the night. The bedspread has cigarette burns and multiple stains. The room smelled of mildew and smoke and the floor was filthy. This was the dirtiest room I've ever set foot in and I wouldn't have put any part of my body on anything in that place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Run! Don't Stay At this Hotel"
Run from this hotel. It was the place from HELL! Checking in the front desk person was extremely rude. She was sick and coughing everywhere and completely unhelpful. Careful they charge a refundable fee for incidentals (why, I don't know, there was nothing to take)I reserved a room with 2 queen beds only to be given one with two full beds not large […] enough for 2 to sleep in. Questioning the front desk was worthless, the reply was "we don't have rooms with that option" then told to take it or leave it. I Called hotels.com and was told they could find me a new room (Not an option as I was going to a wedding in 1 hour). They refunded 15% of my stay vs. the 50% I asked for. The room was horribly run down. Squeaky bed, thin rough linens and holes in the floor. The lamps didn't work, and there was no ironing board or ice buckets. The bathroom was no better with broken handles on the faucets, peeling paint on the walls and a dirty shower. The prize of the room was the window overlooking the kitchen of the restaurant next door complete with all the workers smoking outside and looking in the window. The walls were so thin I heard the next room laughing and coughing all night, it was so clear, I was shocked they weren't in the room. I don't leave reviews often, but this horrible stay prompted me to help save someone else from staying here! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Pictures are VERY deceiving"
My husband and I recently booked a night at The Cavalier Hotel. Looking at the pictures online, it seemed like a great deal: close beach access, adorable retro boutique hotel, & well kept rooms. As soon as we checked in & went to our rooms, I nearly cried. At least 10 flies buzzing around in our room, a broken lamp, view of a dumpster, basically it […] looked like the Bates Motel. I went to the front desk, told them about the bug issue & they informed me there were no other rooms available, & that they would spray ours. So we went out to dinner, came back, & the problem was worse. Flies EVERYWHERE. Once again I went to the front desk, complained, & demanded something be done. Miraculously, a room opened up. So we moved to the somewhat less noisy 2nd floor, opened the door, & MORE bugs. And not just that, but a moldy shower, busted tv, & stained blankets with holes in them. We had nowhere else to go...so we slept for a couple hours & immediately checked out as early as we could. The next morning when I went to check out I demanded to speak to a manager. I showed her pictures I took of the mold, bugs, & stains, & asked if it was possible to get some of our money back. I hate being a pest & a bother, but this was unacceptable. I could care less if a hotel is old & the rooms minimalistic...as long as it's CLEAN!!!!!! The manager gave us 50% of our money back & told us things will be taken care of. The location of The Cavalier was perfect, but the hotel stay itself was horrible. So much for a sweet little getaway with my husband. I refuse to stay there ever again.

TERRIBLE PLACE. Called the night before we went and was told a blow dryer and iron would be in the room, the room had neither and they told us they were out of both. Got to the hotel and found out there was no place to park and no choice but to pay their vallet $25 a day to park our car for us. Vallet never came to pick up our car twice and left it […] out front even though we had paid. Staff was extremely rude and unhelpful. Ignored our issues. Didn't follow up with problems we had, trash in hallways everyday. Not only were there things not in our room that we were told would be there but the tv didn't work, the room was dirty cigarette ashes in the window and dust everywhere. The room had a paper thin blanket and got ice cold at night and the temp control didn't work. Worst hotel I've ever been too. Housekeeping didn't show up some of the days and the days they did they never restocked our towels. We had to go find them to get towels. The hallways of the hotel smelled awful room wasn't much better. Can not tell you enough how rude the staff was! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
