Called a boutique hotel, this is a family run business very close to South Beach and with about fifteen free parking spaces on a first come first serve basis. The availability of such free parking distinguishes this place from other establishments nearby. The room was clean and came with a fridge and microwave. There's also AC and a ceiling fan...

The owner tries his best to overcharge the rooms according to the miami events. If...

Let's face it, Miami Beach is pricey but not here. Awesome location to walk to everything. Friendly staff. We stopped for two nights and we would have stayed longer if we could. I definitely would come back to stay. Only complaint is that the bed was at the bathroom door. Room was big just odd layout of furniture.

The James is very offbeat and charming, a little artsy oasis in the cool Art Deco area of South Beach. It is quiet, clean and 2 blocks from the beach. We enjoyed our stay. The rooms are pretty basic but the porch is interesting and a great place to read. The Lincoln Road pedestrian mall is around the corner, great...

Central placed hotel with very personal service and a very special atmosphere. Fine rooms with fridge, microwave and fine beds. Limited parking, but the staff is very flexible with finding a spot for you. No restaurant, so breakfast is not possible
