The Cavalier Hotel is very popular with the Fashion Industry and is frequently featured in photo shoots due to its beautiful facade. The hotel was originally built in 1936 and reopened in 1992.

Staff was great! Hotel...not so much!

Check-in was easy and the hotel staff was amazing! Noel the front desk agent went above and beyond to make our stay more comfortable. The hotel itself was not was I expected...I've stayed on south beach several times and I know the hotels are old but this hotel was not up to par. The beds were horrible and the bathroom did not look clean at all. When calling back to speak to a manager Stephanie said there was no mangement. How do you run a hotel with no management? We were very pleased with the employees but NOT the hotel!

Birthday stay

The hotel was not the cleanest. It had an odor and was very old....the hot water did not work at all and the staff knew that before we checked in but choose not to tell us, so my boyfriend and I had to take I've cold showers and it was my birthday, was not a good expierience at all. The location was great but I would never stay there again

Eat at Sub Way. They don't automatically add almost a 20% tip to your bill no matter how bad or good the server is.

No hot water for three days

Check in staff did not tell us there had not been any hot water in the hotel for three days. Hotel is old and in need of remodeling. Restaurant in hotel is O K but they add around 20% tip to your bill. Service was poor.

Eat at SubWay on Collins. It is just as good and cost a little over $10.00 compared to almost $40;00 at the hotel restaurant.

Beach getaway

The location was excellent. Everything is within walking distance no need for car just find a place to park we found a garage $20 per day. Beach is right there. Room was small but comfortable, staff was very friendly. Overall i enjoyed my stay at the Cavalier. Great value for location. Based on my experience i would stay there again.

False Advertising & Dishonest Staff

This place is in two words: "A Dumb". On the website it states there is an in-room safe. NOT TRUE. I am a hotelier for 25 years. This place does not fit the description. The staff is dishonest. When I reversed the service charge at the bar (after ordering a salad)because of poor service (because bar tender sitting doing FB and did not offer to serve me, did not greet or smile, etc), he increased the price of the bill stating I was undercharged and threatened me to call the police if I dont pay. I asked to speak to the owner/manager but he "disappeared".

Dining tip: Not Applicable

Pay in CASH. If you are not happy with the service, and you pay by credit card, they will scam you. IF you pay cash, you can still enforce your RIGHT AS A CUSTOMER to expect good service. Staff do not understand that it service is not "taking my order" but "how you go about it, friendly, helpful, speedy, treating me with respect".

Worst dump ever!

Great location, good restaurant at the foot of the hotel, very helpful and understanding staff, HORRID accomodation. Rooms are dingy, worse than a hostel, there was a noise like at an airport (woooooooooooosh indeedy!), the bed had caved in and the bathroom needed to be gutted and built from scratch. This needs major reconstruction ASAP. We have never stayed in a worst hotel anywhere in the world. Manager was great, so were Noel and Yariel at the front desk. Avoid this hotel at all costs until they renovate it!

Best Location.

First off, I read many of the reviews before I booked. The significance of this review will depend on what your expectations are for a hotel. I went by myself as a single male. The location is perfect, right in the middle of everything. I had a special for a King size bed, the room was clean. I had no problem with room service or towels as other stated. The location is perfect right across from the beach and minutes away from Lincoln rd. I would stay here again no problem, as long as it's a king size room.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Go to the liquor store ahead of time and pregame in your room or downstairs of the hotel lobby.
