Hotel is at short distance of the beaches with free parking (limited capacity). Reception friendly. WiFi (free) works fine. Room is fine, bed somewhat small and plastic covered mattresses. Good prive value. No breakfast but coffe (mornings) in the lobby.

Stayed 2 nights at the James last month. Great location, could walk to beach, restaurants, shops easily. Had chosen this hotel because of its quirky looks and it didn't disappoint. Yes maybe the rooms need a bit of updating but ours was very clean, roomy and comfortable. The hotel has such a friendly feel about it, comfy sofas, free coffee... More

The James hotel is a great hotel. Can use some updating. Bathroom needs fan gets humid & rooms need more lighting. However great location close to beach and ocean drive. Also has free parking and coffee. Would stay again in the future.

This hotel had some bad reviews, that in my opinion were not justified; it's clean, friendly, modern rooms, excellent location, and fun interior in the lobby and corridors... Parking our car was no problem, any time of the day. Only comment; the tiles outside get very slippery when wet...

The location of this "special" hotel i s really gret and so close to the beach. They even parked our car for free when the lot was full. For the price the hotel is ok but the location is great. We really liked this place and could very well stay there on our next trip to Miami.
