Great location, service and price!

Granted, I went during low season in Miami, but generally this place has a decent price range for guests and is not overly priced! The location is perfect for the beach and surrounding areas and the staff are friendly. It's dog friendly the hotel! The wifi kept cutting out( at least on our room on the third floor) but everything else was great. Didn't even bother with the restaurant but there was always a steady customer flow when I was there.

Great beachfront hotel and service -- just a little loud.

We had a great stay here -- clean rooms, sun-lit rooms, great service, and great location. Only thing was perhaps it was because we visited on Memorial Day Weekend, but it was very loud on the street side with the live DJ and music in the hotel's street side cafe area. It wasn't as loud though in our room. Maybe it's quieter on non-holiday weekends? Overall, great place.

WOW

From valet to check in to check out, we had a fantastic experience! We arrived early and our room wasn't ready, so they gave us a different room at the same price to accommodate our early arrival. They allowed us to valet our car in front of the hotel while it took the two trips to unload. They also had a bell hop ready to assist us. The room was clean and very comfortable, with a relaxing environment. So relaxing that we had to fight the bed In order to go clubbing the first night. This was partly attributed to the lighting in our room,and throughout the hotel, very exotic. Check out was smooth, but our car wasn't available for pick up because ocean drive was blocked off, we had some time left in our valet, and wanted to take our things to our car so we could enjoy more of south beach, so it posed a problem. Without hesitation, they drove us to our car so we could load our things in it and drove us back to the hotel!!! WOW!! Unimaginable service. Although we wished there was a pool, we were STILL willing to pay more for what we recieved. It appeared to be family owned with some of the young people that were working there. Well if so, they taught there family well. Thank you Cardoza. We will proudly recomend you to family and friends. We'll be back!!!!

Better than I expected!

I usually hate staying on ocean drive unless I'm going to spend big bucks. The Cardozo was decently priced, considering the prime location on the strip. And the rooms were really cool, with ocean views. I wouldn't recommend it as a family hotel as once again, it is right in the middle of all the ocean drive action. I wish I would've know about this place when I was younger! I also learned that it is Gloria estefans hotel- loved it!

Ok Stay

Nothing really to brag about but we did not have any bad experiences here either. Our room was clean. We liked the wood flooring in the room instead of rugs. Cardozo restaurant was pretty good for happy hour. Drinks are huge but come with a pretty big price as well, $25 for a margarita but IMO was worth it for the size of the drink and you get 2 for 1 during happy hr. Parking is $35 for valet but there's a municipal lot directly behind the hotel for $20/day. If you're not driving much that is the better choice. Overall, was a nice stay and great location and I probably would stay here again if I revisit the area.

Nothing special except location

First and foremost the bathroom is uncomfortably small. I am 5'10 195lbs and I sat sideways to use the toilet and fit exactly in the shower. It was rediculous. The room does look like the pictures though. Don't eat at the hotel cafe it's a ripoff. "2 for 1" advertisement means that they charge you for four drinks and make you think you got a deal. Don't fall for this. The hotel room is just too small though. Only a few people were staying there 3rd weekend in Aug. 2012.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Eat on Collins ave and lincoln drive. Washington ave is a little rough. A lot of locals hang out there but there are a lot of clubs on washington ave if that's what you're there for. Espanola Way is awesome for authentic Cuban/Mex food. It's several restaurants on 17th and washington.

memorial day weekend

My visit was great. The staff was very attentive. The hotel was going under renovation but staff was very friendly and wanted to make sure our stay was more than comfortable. They were also very informed on the area and offered great suggestions. no pool but directly across from the beach AI would stay here again.
