We booked The James Royal Palm almost 3 months before our visit. We visit Miami 3-4 times per year and was looking to try out a new hotel. I am an avid user of Yelp and other review sites. I thought I had done my homework - I saw lots of good reviews and thought I was good to go.... More

Stayed here for a few nights in Miami. Location is absolutely perfect; close to the beach, Lincoln boulevard is literally around the corner. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Parking is limited, but free when available. Wifi is available but would not rely on it (your on holiday so who cares anyway). Rooms need an overhaul, but fit nicely into... More

I decided to give this place a shot as me & 2 of my friends were driving down for the night. We arrived b4 check in time but was allowed to check in early. Parking is free. I was prepared for them to take my car key from previous reviews. Upon check in, we were handed a tv remote (weird...lol).... More

A couple friends and I went down to Miami for the 4th of July. We didn't want to spend that much money since we wouldn't be in the room that much. This place worked out well. It was WAY cheaper compared to the other hotels for the holiday weekend. Free parking and coffee in the morning. There was a microwave... More

This hotel was very well situated for beach and Lincoln road. Decor was very lively and fun! Lift broken for the 3 nights we stayed which was tricky since we were on the 3rd floor! Staff friendly but too laid back. Strange smell in corridors! Rooms basic and not completely clean. Overall would stay again because it was very good... More

My friend and I stayed here for only one night in order to attend a concert at The Fillmore. We were both pleased with the location, our room, the free parking, and the service. Because of some of the other reviews, we were a little concerned, but our room was much better than we expected. We could walk down the... More

Excellent location for access to miami beach and Lincoln road shopping. Staff very friendly, parking available although haphazard, entertaining parking methods. Don't expect modern art deco rooms but beds are comfy and shower's good so perfect place to stay on a budget. If your looking for a romantic weekend away its not for you but if you need a place...

The hotel is not the best but then it's not trying to be, it is a comfortable hotel close to the beach and amenities. So cheap I was expecting a bug ridden place but it was good. The bad things were the bed in my room, which definitely had seen better days and also the shelf space.
