Unbeatable location with great staff and access to everything. Great option if you don't want the regular hotel option as this feels more like an apartment. I go to Miami often and will stay here again.

Nice simple hotel

Posted Jul 29, 2014
Hotel 18 was a nice and simple hotel. The crew was very friendly and helpful the manager was awesome. We had a lot of Mosquitos in our room and found a couple spiders though. But I guess with the humidity out there it is expected. Otherwise, it was cute and simple and clean.

Location: great 24 restaurant nearby.
Overall, it's a nice hotel. They offered courtesy beach towels and umbrella for free. The front desk staff was friendly. I was disappointed with the cleaning staff. We had to ask them to clean our room and when they did, all we got were clean towels. The made the bed, but did not provide new sheets, so we slept on the same sheets for our entire stay. The cleaning staff forgot to clean the fridge from the previous people who were staying in the room because the kitchen smelled like bleu cheese dressing. Overall, nice hotel but the cleaning staff could go.

Great deal

Posted Jul 22, 2014
Perfect value hotel. Clean quite rooms and quite property. The rooms and grounds are well maintained and everyone does a good job in seeing your needs are met. The location is good for walking and only a block off the beach. If you are looking for a resort, this is not the place. If you are looking for great value and a South Beach feel, this is your place. I wouldn't hesitate to go again.

Home away from home

Posted Jul 21, 2014
This was a great 1 bedroom apartment with full kitchen, dishes and pots. The sheets, blankets and towels all white showed the cleanliness. The front desk and all the staff was excellent. This hotel is steps from the beach. I would stay here again.

Great hotel for the location and set up!

Posted Jul 14, 2014
Pros: Close to the beach, close to shopping, and close to restaurants. Great price for the location and room.
Cons: Parking but there really is no good solution because there is no space for it!
Location: Lots of shopping, restaurants and of course the beach! CVS and Walgreens within 2 blocks of the hotel in case you forget something at home.
I absolutely loved this hotel! The location was literally a block from the beach and was surrounded by all of the restaurants and shopping that you could possibly need. We did not have to drive anywhere and the area is really safe. Ocean Drive is where many of the nice restaurants and bars are located. Lincoln Avenue shops are also just a few short blocks away. The room had a hair dryer, iron, stove, microwave, refrigerator and freezer, washers and dryers on site, and an ice machine. There is no pool but you do not need one seeing as the beach is literally a block away. The only down side to this hotel is the parking but that is a huge problem with ALL of the hotels in the area. The staff is very helpful in helping you find parking close by. Speaking of the staff, they were all very nice and polite! The only thing that saddens me is knowing that they are going to tear down and rebuild this hotel so I am sure it will be out of my price range then.

Convenient hotel, close to the beach and strip

Posted Jul 10, 2014
Pros: Location is great. Staff is very friendly and reactive.
Cons: Room could be renovated.
Location: Location is great. One block away from the beach and 2 blocks from strip.
Overall the hotel is convenient and functional. Close to the beach and strip. Disappointed about the small room. It could certainly be renovated. Walls are thin so if you have the same luck as we had, you will get loud neighbors and hear all about their drama in the middle of the night. Not great. Staff was very friendly (even offering umbrellas when going to the beach).

Nice place. Excellent location june10-13 birthday

Posted Jun 15, 2014
Pros: Clean! Friendly attentive front desk. Close to beach. Fully stocked kitchenette.
Cons: Clean the chair cushions in the courtyard. Lights fixtures in the rooms are out dated and VERY dull and dreary. Its a shame cause the rooms are cute.
Location: EXCELLENT. Short walk to lincoln road. Tons of restaurants and shops! 1 1/2 minute walk to the beach. Great sobe location ! GO TO "ABUELAS" FOR FOOD!
Glad we stayed here. Only one minor set back that they fixed swiftly. The room decor is just like the website. The young front desk staff were very nice helpful and professional. Unlike what expedia says the front desk is 24hours. The building is older but you can see that they put effort to have a modern decor to offset that. They beds were suprisingly soft and comfortable.. I normaly dont like pillow tops. The bathroom was stocked with good smelling toiletries, not cheap stuff. On entry I appreciated the towels where white and not overused color of off white. Cleaning ladies were friendly and accomodated our need of alot of towels. Our room had an issue that I believe was not under their control. Within 15 min were upgraded to a larger apartment.They even replaced my water I forgot I the room. Even better I found out that they they did not rent that room out the next day to ensure the issue was fixed. 2 min walk to the beach. At the end of southbeach but still VERY busy and hip area of lincoln road. Take the 150 express bus from the airport as this hotel is 100 feet from the bus stop.30 min ride and $2.65 vs $32 taxi ITS DOOR TO DOOR EITHER WAY.
