    This hotel's location is great, real close to Miami Beach and priced well with parking (that's a unique situation in itself with leaving the front desk with your keys so they can park your car in their lot). There may be nicer rooms than the one we were given since I booked through a travel website and not the directly... More

    We stayed at The James Hotel following NYE. We booked a last minute trip to South Beach and unfortunately our options were very limited when it came to hotels when we were ready to make a reservation. We didn't come in with high expectations regarding The James, but we will not be coming back. The hotel was older and felt... More

    Comfortable, reasonably clean, large room, no frills but is good value for this area. Hotel decor is old & quirky, not to everyone's taste. Our room a little noisy with old, large fridge next to bed & hotel car park outside our ground floor window. Room not serviced at all during our 3 day stay, despite sand on floor when... More

    this hotel declares itself as kid family friendly, well if putting a single fussball table in the hotel is the criteria then it fulfills its stated claim we stayed for 5 nights and found a pool, and access to the beach, which is standard for Miami, and nothing else, yes the location is good for south beach, but family friendly,...

    This is listed as a budget hotel and that is what it is. The advantage for us was that parking was included. It has a great location and the rooms are big. Generally, overall it was clean. I liked all the "decorations". I found it pleasant that there is a gentleman that is cleaning and painting things daily. It is... More

    First off: if you can afford to pay $600+ for a beachfront gorgeous hotel, for gods sake do it! BUT, if you want to spend your money in Miami but not ON Miami then this is the place to be! Just 1 1/2 blocks from the beach, a very easy walk, and just off Lincoln road and the mall it... More

    We have stayed a number of times at this charming boutique hotel that is a 5 minute walk to the beach & 1 block from Lincoln Way. The initial draw to us had been that it has free parking but have become increasingly fond of their "creative funkiness" each time we visit. The owner and his staff has always been... More

    The hotel has some interesting and unique items in reception hall. That may seem cute and friendly. However there's some kind of unpleasant smell in the hotel. To overcome with it, the owners use fragrance sprays, which makes it much more difficult to cope with. Beware.
