My girlfriend and I had a fantastic four-night stay at Hotel 18. We were fortunate that a room was available when we arrived at 7am for an early check-in and James checked us in efficiently. We needed the rest after a red-eye flight. Jorge in particular was so enthusiastic and a joy to chat with. He answered all of our... More

The Hotel18 is reasonably priced in terms of South Beach and is on a good location near Collins Avenue and just a few blocks away from the Lincoln Road mall and the beach. The rooms are clean, with a decent kitchenette that will be handy to anyone travelling with kids. Also no issues with noise - some sound from the... More

My room was dirty. The guy on reception was very unfriendly! They don't have parking space. I came back after the beach at 3pm my room still wasn't cleaned. I am not picky kind of person but this place is terrible. I will never stay here anymore! Only good thing it's close to the beach, but if you have car... More

The room was pretty cosy and had a decent kitchenette area. The room had a full size fridge however, this did leak. The staff were all friendly but the door to our room was left open by cleaning staff whilst we were at the beach. This wad pretty disappointing as we had valuables in the room. Was also charged $25... More

This hotel is noway cheap and doesn't have any breakfast or dining services. But the location almost next to the Lincoln Road Mall is excellent. It is also almost right next to the Convention center and beaches. Rooms are tiny, but who comes to live in a hotel room on a Miami Beach vacation anyway? Rooms have small fridge and... More
