Reviewed 12 October 2012

We stayed in a one bedroom flat which had a lounge with sleeper couch so four of us stayed here. For the price and location it was well worth it. The flat itself was decorated very nicely and the kitchen was very clean and all the utensils were practically new. The sleeper couch was comfortable and the bed in the bedroom annoying kept moving because of the tiles but it was comfortable. Plenty of closet space. Bathroom was a bit small but always good to have a hot shower.
Since we had all the facilities we made breakfast each day and the cleaning service was kind enought to put the dishes away.
Hotel is just of Collins street and and then another road to the beach and a short walk to ocean drive and south beach. On the other side two street was Washington avenue which was also excellent. If you have a car be prepared to drive around looking for parking. We were lucky to find a spot on ocean drive on a Saturday night.

This hotel is good if you want to spend more time in Miami as it does feel like home away from home.

I guess you get what you pay for, and this hotel was pretty cheap. Good location. Quiet. Clean, but small rooms. Kitchenette.

Great for sleeping. If you are looking for wild pool parties, you should look elsewhere.

Hotel18 is very well located -- a 2-block walk to the beach and 2 blocks from Lincoln Road's shops and restaurants. The hotel itself is quiet and peaceful with a nice courtyard. Our room had a fridge, a freezer, a toaster and a stove which was perfect for us! We saved money by eating breakfast in our room.

The staff were kind and helpful! Free Wifi in the room!

Some construction was going on during our stay which was unfortunate since the noise woke us up. Also the AC is a bit loud so bring earplugs!The bed was very comfortable!

The cleaning could have been better but overall we were happy with our stay at the hotel. We would definitely stay again!

It's a great place to stay. 3 blocks from a beautiful beach! Good location, clean, super well-equipped, modern and with very kind and professional staff who care about the guests. It has parking (paid as everywhere). They kept a suitcase till we came back from NY and when we arrived there was a card and delicious complimentary cookies waiting fro us. That's customer service!
Congrats to this hotel and thanks to Wilfredo!

Room Tip: I stayed in 2 different rooms and all of them are nice and new.

I recently stayed at Hotel 18 in South Beach for a few nights. The hotel is very simple, nothing fancy, and reasonably priced. It is just off Collins Avenue with all its shops and restaurants and the beach is also only a short walk away.

The staff was also very friendly and helpful.

I overall had a very pleasant stay there and would definitely recommend it if you are looking for a quiet hotel in Miami Beach.

My husband and I stayed here with our 12 month old for the first leg of our vacation/anniversary celebration. When we got to our room, we found some chocolates and a kind note congratulating our anniversary and noticed that the baby playpen was all set up with comfy blankets so our baby could nap. We really appreciated this! It was also nice to have onsite parking (with surcharge) as we had a rental car.
Housekeeping staff was sweet and efficient.
Some construction was going on during our stay and at 2 occasions we found a worker looking in thru our bathroom and kitchen windows. This was alarming and so we kept our blinds drawn shut from that point on. Management did ask our permission if they could have the bathroom window worked on from the outside and they were good about our wish to have this task postponed until the following morning after we check out. However, they must not have communicated this to the construction crew because we found a worker right at our bathroom window just as my husband was about to hop into the shower. It did leave us feeling a bit violated.
The room was clean and had the amenities we needed. The reception area could use a face lift reorganization, and decluttering. I do want to encourage a particular front desk (daytime) staff to be more welcoming and friendly as first impressions do count. Remember, you are receiving people into your establishment who have travelled a long distance, are tired, and are looking forward to some respite.

We stayed here on the recommendation of a relative; the hotel is very near his condo. The price was good, but after two nights, we'd had enough, so moved to a different hotel.
I will say that they had a 5-day cancellation policy, which they waived; we paid for one of the two additional nights we were booked for ($140).
Our room was located on the inner courtyard, so we were subject to all the noise of late-night partiers...we always expect some of that in South Beach, but, coupled with the overall shabbiness of the hotel, it was just too much.
The hotel policy states that late-night noise isn't allowed (I am assuming they mean music); since there is no staff after 8 pm, there is no recourse except to call an 800 number and leave a message. As I said, we expect the noise, up to a point.
The room itself was tiny...the bathroom door opened into the metal "kitchenette" every time. The shower was tiny...the tv was wall-mounted, but about to fall off. There was no place to put our suitcase, no drawers, just...a tiny room. Won't stay there again for any reason.
We're a middle-aged couple. We don't have tons of money. We like value, and we don't want to spend ALL our vacation money on hotels. Hotel 18 is where we draw the line.
