“Excellent stay, would recommend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

My husband, baby and I stayed in a one-bedroom apartment (room 207) at the hotel for 4 nights (booked through Expedia) in February and had no complaints. We would stay here again without hesitation.

Many positives:

- Any staff we came into contact with (front desk, housekeeping, etc.) were super friendly and courteous.
- All areas of the hotel were very clean (reception, steps, courtyard) and there was always a caretaker hosing and sweeping the courtyard throughout the day.
- The room was spotless and was very spacious. Decor was very modern and updated. There were nice flatscreens in both the living room and bedroom.
- A crib (playpen) was already in the room for our baby and when we asked for our bedding to be changed, they changed the bedding the playpen as well.
- The hotel was very quiet the week we were there. The bedroom was even quieter. We slept perfectly.
- The hotel has beach towels they lend out if you don't have your own.
- Location is amazing, on a quiet street just off Collins: 2 short blocks to the beach in one direction, 2-3 blocks to Lincoln Road in the other direction. We felt very safe and the surrounding streets were very clean.
- FREE wi-fi in the rooms, free PC in the reception area to print your boarding passes.
- You can come and go at your leisure through a locked gate at the side of the hotel without passing through reception.

Honestly, I can't really think of any negatives. Don't believe the previous review of this being a "poor motel standard" and something like student hostel. It is not AT ALL - at least not if you take the one-bed apartment and not just a standard room.

The bed was too soft for my liking as I prefer a firm mattress but that's more a matter of personal preference. It was still quite comfortable and we slept well.

Room Tip: Get the one bedroom apartment (we were in room 207) Ask for a room further away from the street if...

This hotel was nice & clean & included a stove & mini frig. It is close to the beach, shopping & restaurants what more could you want. The only complaint I have is that the room is kinda of small but that's usually the case for hotel rooms. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at Hotel 18 prior to going on our cruise. Was very nice even had a kitchenet, fridge and dishes if you chose to eat in. Nice outside area for relaxing. Would stay there again. We would use this hotel again when visiting Miami. Two blocks from the beach.

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.
