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.
