First impressions here were really great. I loved the lobby and the owner and workers are a real pleasure to talk with. Other then that I do not have anything else nice to say other then that the free parking is so much preferable to the rip off valet $30 a day price at other hotels, also the Wi-Fi was... More

The James Hotel is an older mom and pop hotel located 3 blocks away from the beach. The elevator wouldn't work and our room was... More

If you're like me you tend to shy from low cost places in popular and rich locations. THE JAMES HOTEL IS AN EXCEPTION. The rooms are clean and spacious. Blackout curtains provide for a good night's sleep and large windows let light in when you want it. The outside of the place and the lobby are quirky. Odds and ends... More

Was visiting family who were staying at another hotel in the area. James hotel was perfect for us. Friendly accommodating staff. Large, clean room with flat screen tv, microwave and apt sized refrigerator . Plenty of outlets. Bathroom was spacious and modern. Big bonus-- free parking on site while you stay! Short walking distance to everything. Would definitely stay here... More

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... More

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... More

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.
