I love to travel but I HATE looking for hotels because I am a germaphob...Im only comfortable with 4 star ratings. However this was a last minute trip for my husband's bday and I didn't have the money to shell out this time to stay on south beach. I was PLEASANTLY surprise when entered our room at this hotel. I admit walking in to the lobby I was a bit fearful but the room was excellent very clean and spacious. The bathroom was small but clean, bed was comfy,and the room had a full kitchen. The most amazing part the hotel is 3 blocks from the beach. Not the Ritz Carlton but for the price it was perfect. Will book again

Room Tip: One bedroom apartment

We checked in on Thursday early afternoon the clerk was courteous, well kept and spent a lot of time telling us about the area and answering questions. The street outside was undergoing construction, but no too bad. Lobby clean and nicely furnished with computer and printer- free. The room was large, with a full kitchen, living room and bedroom. It was nicely furnished, the bed comfortable, very clean and homey. Plenty of hot water, ATM on premises, lots of stores and restaurants very close by, great food, safe neighborhood, 3 minute walk to ocean. They arranged for a taxi to take us to the airport and it was on time. Did not clean floor in the 4 days we were there, did not change bed linens during the stay, did not swap out all of the towels each day even if damp.

But, would highly recommend it and stay there again, but will make they clean floor and change towels daily, and linens at least every other day while we are there

Very poor motel standard, but clean to stay, at a good location, with decent guests. More of student hostel profile with private rooms. Security is very good and staff are very helpful and friendly. Also to be fair most of South Beach Hotels had the same moderate 60's style small hotels with the exceptions of few fancy ones.

We (wife, self and 2 other couples) stayed one night pre-cruise, had a wonderful time. Very clean and comfortable, good location, close to beach, Lincoln Rd mall, great shops and food. Nothing fancy, but very good value for money. A big plus is the central courtyard for a quite evening drink with friends, or to just check your e-mail. Safe area for walking at night. "Will" at the front desk arranged for taxi's to Port on our departure and was very helpful with restaurant suggestions. We will certainly be back.

There are multiple aspects to staying in any hotel. The main things I look for are: clean, quiet, good location, and price. I don't care if the place has a piano in the entrance.

POSITIVE:
The place was quite clean, the location was very good, the manager was helpful. But in terms of service, how do you give it 4 or 5 stars when no one is there after 8PM??

NEGATIVE:
Most workmanship in the room was very shoddy (paint on the blinds, cabinets that don't fit with doors askew, poor plastering). The 2 single beds were not comfortable at all (very cheap). Air conditioner was a bit loud.

But as for quiet - it was awful. It appeared that the windows didn't fit properly and sound passed through them as if they weren't even there. There was traffic noise, and the most annoying was other guests in the courtyard yelling/talking to each other until 2:30 in the morning. The courtyard acted like an echo chamber amplifying the sound. And as others indicated (and I confirmed), there is no service desk after 8pm.

Ultimately, if I can't get to sleep in a hotel room - for me it's primary purpose - I can't recommend it, and thus the low overall rating. I've tried to be very specific in what I liked and didn't like so you can make up your own mind, but I can't believe the people who indicated the place was quiet.

This is more of a 4.5 star review. We had 5 friends staying in a 1 bedroom apartment at Hotel 18 and it fit us all very comfortably. There was a queen size bed, a pullout couch, and a rollaway bed, along with plenty of room to sleep on the floor if you needed. The rooms were very clean, and had a fridge and full kitchen for long stays if you needed to cook anything. The only minor quip was the bathrooms were a little smallService was great, Wilfredo was helpful with everything you needed.

Amazing location, heart of South Beach, easily accessible to Lincoln Road, Collins, Ocean Drive, the beach, and Washington Avenue.

Decor is great, rooms were clean and had everything we needed and the kitchenette was a great feature, microwaves in hotel rooms should be a necessity everywhere!

Service was great too, the check-in receptionist was very friendly and helpful. We disembarked very early from our cruise ship (around 10am) and headed straight to the hotel and were granted our request of early check in! We had the room a mere hour later, 4 hours earlier than the 3pm official check in time. Very accomodating.

All in all, a solid bet for South Beach on a budget without compromising anything (except a pool), and would definitely stay here again and recommend to all
