Many of the review don't belong to this hotel. The James Hotel has no ocean view. Except from one guy the staff is neither friendly nor helpful. We never used the elevator and the floors when walking up to our rooms smelled pretty bad. When we turned on the AC in our room it smelled horrible. The fridge is very... More

I cannot believe my eyes with all these good reviews! Were you all sense-less during your stay?! lol While in the room at one point I had to use the restroom. It quickly entered my mind to think about where I could go to the restroom as if I somehow canceled the idea of using the room's facilities. It was... More

We ended our cruise with a couple days in South Beach. The James Hotel was one of the lowest price options. The location turned out to be perfect. About 3 blocks to the beach and only a block to the Lincoln shopping strip. Close to many activities, bars and restaurants. Staff was very friendly. The owner, Mr. Torre was very... More

staff was very friendly. Rooms were solid and a good size. We were there for 10 days and enjoyed it. the food is good at the patio bar. Good green feel to place. I would recommend. They could use some help with the beach staff, however..

I just got back from a long weekend celebrating a big birthday with two of my friends. My husband and I travel frequently and normally stay at five star hotels. In order to net desires for a good hotel with varying budgetary constraints of multiple travelers, we chose The James. It clearly exceeded expectations. First, the service was exemplary. Without...

Bed linen was dirty - it was not changed for new guests - found all kind off hair and different coloured spots on pillow. Fridge was... More

Do Not Book this hotel! The reviews shown are mixed between the James and the Royal James. This is why reviews are either really good or really bad. The James Hotel is very simple and not much more than a hostel. The rooms are not what most people would consider acceptable. After booking three rooms and seeing what we were... More
