Hotel 18 is located only 1 block from the beach. But I would say this is the only good thing about it. The hotel has so many problems and could be a lot nicer. Firstly, the rooms are very basic and small. The beds seemed short, I am only 5 foot 6 and my feet were hanging off the end... More

On our last visit to Miami beach (April 20 to 23) we booked Hotel 18. We got there earlier than check-in time but the room was ready so we checked- in early without any difficulty. The accommodations were small but very comfortable. It was like having a little apartment away from home. I was especially impressed with the efficiency kitchen.... More

really enjoy my stay in this hotel. People and owner, Sara, very friendly and helpful. The studio I rented can easily fit 4 persons. Kitchen allows to make complete meals if you want to save money on restaurants. The premises are very clean and the location is fantastic being close to SOBE's night life but situated in a quiet street... More

This small motel is one block from the Collins Ave club/pub/restaurant/shopping strip and a further short walk from the beach. Also not far from the Lincoln St mall. It isn't stylish or elegant, but those are unnecessary expense-adders - if you want them, stay in one of the big-name places on Collins and pay for them. The room itself was... More

This charming hotel was the perfect one for my few days escape to South Beach!! Close to every clubs, restaurants, shopping mall and the most important a block away from the beach. It's a very quiet and clean small property, not expensive at all. Will come back for sure!! :)

We stayed for one night at the end of March to tour Miami before heading back to the Gulf Coast from Key West. The booking process, including requested parking reservation, and staff service were excellent as was the price considering how expensive Miami is in March. The room (214, studio queen) was spacious and clean enough (hairs on the bathroom... More

I almost didn't want to write a review of this place because I considered it a 'hidden gem' and didn't want to risk it being booked up if I ever go back! This place is not upscale, over the top fancy or glamourous...but it is clean, quiet, charming and tasteful. We stayed here before a cruise and it was perfect.... More

Very nice stay with a very good price in a very quit street but close to all the bars and animation. Lincoln street is just around the corner, supermarket is really close. We stayed in an apartment with kitchen and one bedroom and it's really worth the price different. The apartment is small but have all that you need for your... More

Hotel 18 is superbly located half a block from Collins St and the airport bus stop and 3 min walk from Washington St and Lincoln Rd so it's right in the heart of all the action in South Beach. Also it's a block and a half away from the beach. The hotel provides short and long term stays. Our room... More

My husband and I stayed here one weekend in February and were very happy with our room. The lady at the front desk was very nice and even helped us with our bags. The hotel room is a tiny studio apartment complete with a kitchen. Everything was very clean. The local bus stop is only a block away (which you... More
