I was in town for a conference, and Hotel18 came to my salvation.  They are blocks (like, two) away from the convention center, the Gleason center, and the beach!  The rooms are sparkling clean with a well-equipped kitchenette.  They're not huge by any means, but a great setup.

Despite their great location, close to all the action, the hotel is kind of on a quiet corner, which means you can get a good night's sleep.

But where Hotel 18 goes above and beyond is service - the staff was hands-down amazing and supportive, despite some challenges (my flight got cancelled, and I ended up arriving well after midnight, to start with, plus I had to modify my stay, which they were able to handle even though they were very nearly booked-up).  Despite all of the hassles I threw at them, they were able to meet my every need without blinking an eye.

As a Miami native, I can say that Hotel 18 is absolutely a great place to stay.  It is close to the South Beach scene, yet located about 1.5 blocks from all the madness; Thus, providing sanctuary in an otherwise bustling area.  Location aside, the hotel is decorated beautifully and comfortably. Every inch of the hotel is modern and clean.
The courtyard area is my favorite perk. It reminds me of the old Art Deco South Beach  and provides a nice community area where you can chat it up with travelers from all over the world.
Management does a great job of celebrating holidays and making people feel at home.  I think they really want for people to feel relaxed and happy during their stay.
I wish there was a Hotel 18 in every city I visit.  For the price and environment--it is unbeatable. Five stars all the way.  

...and before I forget, the front GATE is locked and for guest access only--meaning the chances of an unexpected wanderer slipping into the property and ruining your fun is slim to none.  

Happy travels!

I grew up in Miami and Hotel 18 is absolutely a great, cute place to stay.  It is across the street from a beautiful beach and within walking distance to everything.The hotel is modern and clean and our room was actually large for Miami.

Management was really nice and accommodating. I would go back for sure.

I have been lucky enough to stay at Hotel 18 twice already and I have to say it is one of Miami Beach's Jewels.
As much as I want to let people know how great this Hotel is I also wish I can still find a room there when I want, so I write this with some intrepidation.
The one bedroom rooms are spacious and equipped well enough you can call them home for quite a while (makes sense when I heard that it used to be an apartment building).
So don't hesitate to book if you want to be close ehough to the beaches and the conference center.
Say hello to Sachy the manager, she is always very helpful and a joy to talk to.

This place is nasty.  We booked based on yelp and hotels.com reviews.  We were greeted with unfriendly (almost hostile) staff, two inch cockroaches and chipping paint in the "kitchen."  It only got worse from there.  Management has an antagonistic relationship with guests as evidenced by aggressive sounding signs threatening various penalties for various infractions.  We arrived late after traveling 16 hours with two kids only to find that we didn't have the requested roll away bed and they were going to charge extra for two parents and two kids bc our fifteen year old counter as an adult. They also charged the entire stay on check in. Finally, we decided to call it a day and moved to the Loews hotel.  Now we are going to have to duke it out with hotels.com and hotel 18 to try to get a refund.

I wish I could give this hotel or whatever it is zero stars. Absolutely most disgusting place I've ever stayed. Cockroaches, smells like mold. Dirty, spiders in all corners of this room. I booked via hotels.com and first of all they didn't disclose a rare change or extra person fee and charged us almost 500 night for this hell hole. We left and booked at 5 star hotel for same price. By the way if you do decide to book here anyways bring your own towels the ones in room were dirty. Lastly, the bed was either broken or mattresses from 1972 sooooo uncomfortable. Ugh

I'm reading the other reviews thinking how could they have a bad experience here? I've stayed at hotel18 once a year for the past two years and they have each been a week stay, the staff is friendly and welcoming. They help you when needed. I trust them with my credit card information unlike other hotels in the area and I don't call it a hotel I call it a apartment. Great place for the price, yeah you might have to walk some but still a awesome stay. Parking is limited but when they have it, it's worth it.

This will be a glowing 3 star review based on the value Hotel 18 was, and with some small improvements it could easily move into the 4 star category.

First the positives, on my stay it was only about $125 a night. Located only a block away from all the action of South Beach it was very convenient, clean, and the staff was very friendly. They offer parking at around $25 a night which was also nice. The room was more like a studio apartment as it had a fridge and an oven. Additionally they also have free wifi that worked well.

On to the less good. I found the bed to be  mediocre, just super soft and squeaky at times. I'm pretty tech savvy and found the tv/cable to be not all that user friendly. For a hotel that was just reopened/remodeled I found the electric outlets to not be in convenient locations, I had to move furniture slightly in order to have my phone charge on the nightstand, I would've that they might've had a USB outlet.

Overall I would recommend Hotel 18 and would definitely return as many of their competitors were twice the price of this place.

Hotel 18 is a little hotel in Miami Beach that looks a bit like an apartment complex. There are rooms surrounding a central courtyard area that has a bunch of lounge type seating. The hotel feels pretty safe with a locked gate that requires a key code. The room that we had looks like an apartment as well, a nice one. A living room with a fold out couch, a kitchenette that comes with dishes, a bedroom with its own tv...it all has a very homey feel and I like that. The ladies at the counter were also very nice and helpful when we had questions.

There are 2 things that our party didn't like about our stay though.

#1: the sink space is non-existent. It is a lovely bathroom, but there is no counter space at all in the bathroom. We had to use the shelf in the hall closet adjacent to the bathroom as a counter. It's a little inconvenient but we made it work fine.

#2: My bigger issue at Hotel 18 was the lack of parking. There are maybe 5 or 6 stalls and apparently you need to reserve them in advance. When I booked the room on-line I don't recall ever seeing anything telling me that I needed to reserve a stall. I may have overlooked this. The stall is $25 a night which is pricey but doable. The girl at the desk told us that there is a valet lot less than a block away that was $25 a night too. We decided to go that route. Well, dealing with this lot is what killed a lot of our Miami Beach trip.

When we got there they said the parking was $50 a night and that if we went anywhere else it would be the same price. We didn't really want to go driving around Miami Beach aimlessly looking for another place in it's crazy traffic so paid that fee. The next day they told us overnight parking would be $70!!! Yes, not a typo, SEVENTY DOLLARS! That is the most ridiculous parking price I have ever heard for ONE night. Fortunately, when we told them we paid $50 the night before they gave US $50. We even overheard some workers talking about the price. The conversation went something like this:

Valet 1 (who was just showing up to work): what's the price today?
Valet 2: $50 for the day and $70 overnight.
Valet 1 (eyes get big): Whoa!!! $70!!

Even their own employees thought it was outrageous. It seems like they kind of just make their own prices whenever they feel like it.

Also, as a warning, they use people's cars as shuttles to their other parking lot. True story. They even drove my party in someone's parked car to the other lot and dropped us off there.

While this whole parking situation isn't directly Hotel 18's fault we went told to park there and their lack of parking kind of makes this route forced upon you. Also, they should probably call the valet people daily and figure out the price of the day because we were told $25 and it was double that. Dealing with this parking lot really put a big damper on our Miami stay

So keep in mind as you read this, I will be back late May 2015 for a full review. Now currently I called this Hotel for information about transportation from the Miami Airport to their facility. I also indicated I was going to be a guest there as well. A man answered the phone and said  "no" to my question and hung up....really....right in my face!!! Granted they could have been busy, but over the phone customer service is just as important as in face customer service. I prayed to God once I get there, the customer service would have improved.

Here is a full review for all kinds of people. If you are low maintenance type, this "hotel" might be okay in your book. It's basic. It is allegedly newly renovated, however, I'm not sure any part was aside from the check in area, which you don't sleep in, so that's pretty useless for a customer. The bathrooms are super dated with cracked tiles, filthy bathtub/showers, and a door with chipped paint and wouldn't close. But, the water runs and they do their best to keep clean the very old tiles.

For the customer who expects newer finishes and a more lush vacation...the service is 100% terrible. My fiancé and I left for the entire day, spent at the beach. When we returned at 5:00 pm, the room had not yet been cleaned. As I begin getting ready at 5:30 for a wedding I had to attend, we get a knock on the door for cleaning service. I had to send them away to return later as I needed to be using my room. Their response was that they were leaving for the day and they would come back tomorrow. The second issues was the next day as we were climbing into bed... We pulled down the sheets and found some pretty gross brown stains... On our supposedly clean sheets. I went down to the office with my dirty sheets in hand to exchange for new ones. Lastly, my in-laws who were a few doors down woke up in the middle of the night due to what felt like something in their sheets. They turned the lights on and found flying termites swarming their room. Lovely. In addition to that, their AC unit did not work. This was the only complaint I didn't have about my room as ours was freezing at all times (which I like) but clearly every room varies which isn't very comforting.

Although the location is good and the place is affordable, I would pay triple to assure I never had to stay at that place again. The conditions were unacceptable to me.

By and large, this boutique hotel is a great place to stay based on location and the amenities. We had 2 large parties of 8 girls in 2 rooms. It was a 1 bedroom/1 bath with a pullout sofa in the living room. There was a nice, modern kitchenette included in the room as well. The bathroom was small and very little counter space.

The hotel had a nice courtyard with tables, benches and lounge chairs. Smokers, families, foreigners and tourists would hang out in the courtyard and it was wasn't crazy during the times we stayed there. The only downfall is that all rooms are facing the courtyard and if guests were loud then you can hear them in your room.

We did experience a snafu during our stay. We were here for a bachelorette party and we were being kinda loud. A drunk guy started banging on our window and door to try to get into our room. We thought the hinges to our front door were going to give since he was kicking to try to bust through the door. On several occasions we told him to leave and that we would call the cops. We tried to call the front office but it led us to a 24 hour number and all we could have done was leave a message. One of the girls called the police. Then the dude stopped. After a few minutes, he came back and started banging on the door again.

Finally, property management called and later came by.  When we relayed our story,  the property manager didn't believe our story and told one of the girls that the dude was our friend. WHAT?!

Then the police came and the manager totally changed her attitude. The cops looked around and they couldn't find anyone. The manager indicated that she would look at the video surveillance for one of our girls to identify.

Fast forward, turns out the dude was a foreign guest that was staying at the hotel and NO we didn't know who he was. The manager apologized, but we were taken aback with our experience.

Despite this incident, we still enjoyed our stay. Close to the beach and a nice walk to some touristy places.
