    The beds and pillows are very comfortable, nice and clean rooms. You can park in the parking lot connected to the hotel for less. Book your parking through SpotHero. It was only $27 for 24 hours. Right across from Trader Joes. Prime Location.

    The swimming pool will still be available in the hotel next door and as long as your are guests of The James and you present your key cards you will be given full access to the pool.
