This is a budget hotel in the heart of Miami Beach- no frills. But the location is great, the parking is free, and the decorations and vibe are fun. This is not anything of a luxury experience, but my wife and I's room was very clean. The hallways had a little bit of a funny odor to them but this...

The James hotel is ideal if you need a cheap hotel room in Miami Beach. Most of the staff are not native English speakers and my initial impression was that they were not too friendly. However, I soon learnt that this was due to the language barrier and by the time we left I changed my impression. The main advantages...

When I got to the hotel we discoverd that I booked for 2016 instead of 2015 by mistake. The hotel still accomadated me for the same price! Awesome location on Sobe. The hotel was clean and 24 hour coffee in the Lobby. Wifi worked fine. Will stay here again when visiting Sobe

The hotel was quaint and very clean. Great location near the beach and lots of places to walk to. The parking lot is small and cars have to be moved around by the valet constantly, but the service is very responsive and quick. The front desk staff is friendly.

a unique hotel that has been locally owned and operated for generations that cater to those who want to enjoy all south beach has to offer. This place is not for those who want to go on vacation and be placated by staff members waiting on their every need, but for those who would rather spend their money on food,...

I chose this one for location, parking and very convenient price based on other guests reviews and what i experienced was the following: Location: on the north edge of Art Deco district, 1 block away from walgreens and CVS, Lincoln Rd, just around the corner. 2 blocks to the beach, and few more to Ocean Drive dining and nightlife area....

This is a small hotel in a side street. The price you pay reflects this. The room was acceptable but nothing special. The room was not that clean. Every day from the day we arrived there was sand on the floor which would indicate that room cleaning was not that high. There was no in room safe. Bathroom was small...

Stayed at the James for 3 nights for a business trip. The room was clean and modern with a decent view of the beach. I ordered the cuban eggs benedict for breakfast one mornign and it's handsdown one of the best things I've ever had. The bar/ restaurant downstairs seemed nice although I didn't have much time to enjoy it,...

I will agree with some of the other reviewers on most points. It's an older property, with a funky lobby and exterior - pretty neat, but the rooms have been updated. The good points - rooms are simple but clean. Tile floors, Refrigerator & Microwave, Free Parking (but they hold your key). Good location - easy walk to the beach...
