Spent one night at this hotel and was quite satisfied. The receptionist was very polite and nice, the room (302) was nice and very clean. The bathroom was also very nice and clean, looked like it was just renovated. The only negative thing with this hotel was the noise from the elevator. Free parking just outside the hotel was really... More

We stayed 4 nights at the James Hotel and it was average but we weren't expecting much anyway - the great thing about it for us was the location. It is metres away from the Lincoln Mall which has many great restaurants and shops and also a street away from Miami Beach/Boardwalk. They offer free parking, although limited, but we... More

The price was great for the location. The hotel looked quirky, but I that's the fun of Miami. The rooms were average. I liked that our room had a ceiling fan. We had trouble with the ac unit one night when it stopped working. The staff was nice enough to let us sleep in another room for the night. We... More

The location is great very close to the many things happening in the area. When we pulled up there was a woman feeding the pigeons in the parking lot and asked that we watch for them. I didn't want to be a bird killer to start my trip. The pigeon enthusiast turned out to be the person checking us in.... More

The rooms were great. Roomy, modern, and clean. The fitness center was small, but good and we enjoyed the pool as well. The location is great if you want to be near all the events along the beach. We went during Art Basel and it was perfectly located.

James the owner will do all he can to accommodate you. Simple hotel, simple rooms, free parking and a lobby you would need hours to check out all the details that make this reception so kitsch. No breakfast available, just plain coffee.

This is a quirky, funky looking hotel from the outside and inside too. Until you get to the rooms. They do not look anything at like rest of hotel. Very plain and bare. Rooms are clean. Did have a microwave and small fridge in walk-in closet, but not a single hanger to hang clothes up. The plastic had not been... More
