"Distinctive hotel, good value."
Hotel is in a good location, walkable to the beach. This is towards the quieter end of South Beach. The hotel itself is quirky in terms of the building exterior and the reception area, definitely not an anonymous chain feel! The rooms are variable. One of the rooms we had was refurbished, and smart. The other was yet to be updated and beginning to feel […] a bit tired. Lots of space in the room. Overall a good value for the area.

"Ok in a pinch"
Needs upgrading. Shower never worked. Barely any water pressureGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Funky, Clean, and inexpensive. Very close to night life and great food. Good neighborhood, can walk night or day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The customer service was horrible. The conditions of the rooms and hotel are disgusting. No need to stay there, there are plenty hotels next to it that are in better conditions.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Clunky Funky Fun"
The staff are very very good moving cars in the free parking area. You can tell they want their guests to be comfortable in the rooms. I was offered a blanket because the a/c is super-cold. Wake-up calls. The rooms vary. We had two rooms and one was better than the other. The sheets and mattresses are clean and comfortable. You are just one block from […] The Ritz and The National so you can pretend to be anything you want to be including clunky, funky and funny! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location, great staff, not fancy."
This hotel was decorated funky with friendly staff and free parking. It is in a great location! However, the room was dated and a bit small, but for us that works because of location and staff that made us feel comfortable. It is nothing fancy, but a great bargain, we would stay here again for sure..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I enjoyed the eclectic style of this place. Very unique. Rooms were dive, but very spacious. I chose this place because of price, uniqueness and convenience to the beach. I would come back!Genuine Expedia guest review
You can sum up that vibe and atmosphere of Miami just in the way the hotel looks. The staff are friendly and help full. The location is great, every thing I need was within walking distance. Once we got there we never used the car till we left. I will stay there next time I'm in Miami Beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One night at south beach"
Old and worn, but clean. Great service. Even a free parking, which is rare in that area. Couldn't have been better for $99 a night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gaudy paint and weird decor doesn't equal 'funky'"
In short, spend some more money and stay elsewhere is my recommendation. My stay was three nights. Yes the price was cheap compared to other hotels, but this was a case of getting exactly what you pay for, or less. Slapping yet another coat of bright paint on the wall and decorating with odds and ends from the antique mall does not replace maintenance […] and upkeep of the property. The first room I was given was at the end of a long hall and had a huge 2.5 feet by 2.5 feet return vent for the building air-conditioning right inside the room door. This basically sucked all the cool air from the hallway and every bit of cool air out of the room. I could feel it pooling the hot air in around the old windows in bathroom. After four plus hours with no lowing of the temperature I went and they were willing to change my room after some back and forth as to not understanding the problem. The day I left they were in that room with the vent cover opened, so who knows. Otherwise the hotel is very old furniture, baths, paint, everything. The lobby smelt like industrial bathroom cleanser, so I just walked through quick each time. I was on the second floor so used the stairs, as I was warned about the very slow elevator, so if you get on the upper floor you may have a slow ride. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to everything"
The hotel was close to everything, and we didn't realize it! lol. We walked out to Lincoln road where all the shops and eateries are, and we were even able to walk to the beach and enjoy ourselves at Fat Tuesdays. The only downfall is that the shower was COLD. If they could fix this, I wouldn't mind staying there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
this hotel is a dump. the outlets did not work. I could not charge my phone. the tv did not work, there was no a/c for the first two nights because they said they were fixing it. I till I demanded a new room. a/c worked fine in the other room. why would they have placed me in a room that had no a/c when they had available rooms with a/c. disgraceful […] hotel Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not the Ritz Carlton but it's Clean"
Ok, so it's not the Ritz Carlton. But for $99 a night, it is a very good deal. A lot of little motels in the area are "retro" and built back int the lat 50s but this little motel is very clean. The parking was not free the first night because there was not room for my car, but after that they fit it in. The motel is located 2 streets from the ocean […] and right next door is Lincoln Road where there is lots of eats and shops. The owner of motel is very kind too. TBH, the bed was pretty firm but there was a fridge and a microwave in the room. I would stay again if I was going to shop or go to beach but did not need to sleep. The one thing you have to do there is go on the Segway tour at Bike and Roll across the steer. Ask for Shauna tour- it was amazing!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We choose the James hotel because of the atmosphere of the building, and the convience of its location. We were not dissapointed! The room fit our family of 2 adults and 3 children well. The owner was VERY nice and helpful. The maintnece was good too. Now, it is an old building, but what the owners have done with it was awesome! All the walls were so […] exciting!! And of sourse, you couldn't ask for a better location! The pizza bar around the corner was by far our kids favorite thing :) Would def stay there again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was basic but clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Only problem was that in our room the toilet wasn't working. Also, we had no hot water in the morning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very central location."
An older basic hotel with a nice atmosphere. The staff was very helpful with all questions asked. Cheap compared to the location. I would go back any time!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent location in a qiuet street. The the hotel would need some refurbishment but it was clean. The staff was very friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome place to stay!"
I got an extremely good rate & they were super friendly. The James Hotel is down the block from the Ritz-Carlton which is right on the beach. I love Miami!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the beach but kind of run down."
This hotel is not worth the money. Has a very strange parking situation, where you leave your keys and they move the cars in and out of the large driveway as people need them. Very run down hotel, but close to the beach. Last resort hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location, But"
This hotels is old, and very worn. A little creepy as well. It needs a lot of work. Plus, the desk clerk on duty had no record of our Hotels.com reservation. It took a little talking, a call to hotels.com, and a fax from them to secure our room. The location is great.... Only a block from the beach. The staff was nice, but seemed bothered when asked […] for anything. Like getting our car unblocked in the cramped parking lot. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good lovation not so nice hotel"
Great location. I went for ultra weekend and it was wayy overpriced for what it is paying 170 a night with taxes.Genuine Expedia guest review
You get what you pay for, though I paid for a room with two queens, I arrived without my partner and was given a single bed. A/C needs a lot of workGenuine Expedia guest review
"Looking for a cheap room in Miami for 2 days"
The location of the hotel is great and it has parking places. The confort of the room is weak but the main advantage was the price of it.Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent location outside and lobby are well decorated and appealing but the beds are in need of being updated other than that they did a good job.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Located a block from Lincoln Road and Collins Ave."
This is an old hotel with a fun lobby. While it is old, there was a new bathroom installed. I like the idea that the tub was removed and replaced with a large shower. Gentleman at the desk was very pleasant and concerned about my stay. Always a friendly greeting and a sincere goodbye when I left. Reasonable rates for a solo traveler. I would stay there […] again.

"The Hotel smelled horribly."
I had to find another hotel as I could not stand the smell. The rooms were old and patch-worked.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location and value but be prepared to compromise on GREAT customer service. It's obvious that English is their second language, so be a little patient with communication.Genuine Expedia guest review
We got to hotel around 11pm and front desk staff told us there is no parking available until we said couple of words in Spanish. We stayed for two nights, location is very good. Room is very dark and smell not so fresh. Floor dirty, beds was OK. You get what you pay for. It was cheap compare to other places.Genuine Expedia guest review
just ok for the location, I would not stay here again due to dirty sheets and towels, oh and it's hard like rock. I guess it's a 2**, that is why.Genuine Expedia guest review
"One night stay"
All of the hotel staff was very helpful and pleasing, from the two ladies when I checked in to the father of the owner in the morning and the guardian later on. They were helpful providing internet access code and information, as well as for arranging for rental parking my car in front of the hotel at no cost and this until the afternoon of the day […] I checked out. The room was very spacious and overall clean (tiles, bathroom, beds) even though there was an empty coke can under one of the beds, the door did not lock properly and the phone was disconnected. The location of the hotel is very central to all the main attractions and convenient. Good quality for the price at Miami's standards ! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice economic hotel close to beach"
We stayed in this hotel for two nights. The boss and the location are very nice. We were there early and the boss let us checked in with no problem. It is two blocks to the beach. And also close to the shopping mall and restaurant. The only thing i gave it 4 out of 5 is that, the building is old. Don't expect it looks like a 3 star hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Room Smelled Bad"
Though the staff was nice, everything worked and the room had a fresh coat of paint, I can recommend James Hotel to nobody. The room had a horrible smell that made me afraid to open the door. Also, if you removed the television and microwave, the room could have come from a 1945 low life movie. Though ample in size, it was probably the least comfortable […] room I can remember. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We didn't spend a lot of time in the hotel itself as we were outside exploring the area. For the price the location is excellent, it's one block from Lincon Blvd. Free onsite parking (arrive early as space is limited) and has laundry facilities. The hotel room was modest but satisfactory. The staff helpful. were happy with our time in house.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Unique Hotel Close to Beach and Shopping"
We stayed for 2 days. Hotel staff was a little unorganized when we arrived, giving us a room that hadn't been made up yet, but then upgraded us to a better room. The WiFi is spotty depending on where you were in the hotel. The doors actually have real keys, but the deadbolt didn't work on ours only the basic lock worked. They said maintenance would […] fix it but they never did so we ended up carting around all our valuables whenever we left the hotel. We had no issues with security even so.

"excelente localização e só."
Vale pela localização e um dos poucos hoteis de miami bech que tem estacionamento, porque o quarto era horrivel ... pequeno e mal acabado.. banheiro pequeno. Parecia um motel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pour l'emplacement et pkg gratuit uniquement"
Hôtel bien placé : il est possible de rayonner à pieds ou bus en laissant la voiture au pkg (gratuit). les chambres sont spartiates, climatisation bruyante. Ne pas chercher de charme particulier dans la chambre, débrancher le fridge bruyant ... equipements de la chambre en état occasion amortie ..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Go for it!"
Great location, friendly staff, more than ok rooms. They need to work on ther internet coonection.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The James Hotel has a hippie culture to it, where guests are smoking Marihuana in the hall. The rooms were dirty and the lack of service and hospitality is unfortunate.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap but great!"
Dont choose this hotel, if you want luxery, and if you plan to stay in your room alot - because they are nothing more, than a room with two beds in them. However, if you want an extreamly friendly staff, a fantastic location and easy access to everything - this is the place to choose! Nxt time we are in Miami Beach, we will for sure book this hotel […] again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lidt slidt, men godt til pengene"
Hotel James er et meget specielt hotel, det skal opleves, 2 min gang til Lincoln road, og 8 min gang til Miami Beach, en oplevelse værd.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel está já antigo, mas A localizaçao é boa, embora não seja no miolo da oceano drive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel très bien placé a 300 m de south beach. A 10 mn a pied d'Océan drive. Par contre l'hôtel est vieux et la sur décoration est la pour masquer les fissures et autres imperfections. Chambre grande mais pas très propre. Salle de bain mal netoyée. Personnel sympa. Ambiance "pension espagnol". Gros plus: son tarif.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Ett udda hotell i anglo-cubansk blandning. Man blir rädd när man ser det men det är inte så dumt alls. Trevlig hjälpsam personal, lite Fawlty Towers utan Basil. Ligger mycket bra till.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"pas cher on a pas cher"
Pres de la plage, et très bien situer concernant le magasinage et les rues principales, hôtel pas cher, parfait pour étudiants et les personne qui ne cherche pas trop de confort ou de propreté.Genuine Expedia guest review
Super beliggenhed, 10 min fra stranden, 5 min fra restaurant og shopping område - men alligevel en stille gade så man ikke skal sove i støj! Fås nok ikke bedre til prisen! Store værelser, lidt mærkeligt indrettet, vores badeværelsesdør kunne ikke åbnes helt pga 1 seng. Ellers pænt og rimeligt. Gratis parkering var klart også en fordel - bilerne stod […] i 3 rækker og man efterlader nøglen i receptionen så de han rykke rundt på bilerne hvis den inderste bil skal ud.
