Hotel America in Cannes is named as such because the owner lived in the U.S. and has an American-born daughter. My wife and I appeared to be the only Americans actually staying there over a long weekend in July 2012.
We stayed in what they call a junior suite which means a large room (the couch may have been a pull-out bed, I forgot to check). It was well appointed, had a large comfortable bed ,and was on the most quiet side of the hotel (overlooking the Rue Nôtre-Dame - the other side, overlooking the Rue Saint-Honoré, can be noisy when an adjacent large hotel's personnel dump the previous evening's bottles into the containers). We did not see a standard room so have no idea about its size.
The breakfast buffet is fairly basic but adequate - however, the serving ladies are so nice and helpful that you have the impression you're in a 5-star hotel. In fact, every single member of the staff was nothing short of charming, helpful, and as nice as anyone we've ever met in France. They all appear to be locals.
The hotel is very well located being minutes' walk from the Croisette, the convention center, one of the yacht harbors, the beaches, and the main restaurant strip between the convention center and the Town Hall where you'll find the best seafood restaurants.
We found the room prices to be very reasonable for the place and high season. My only tiny complaint is that they seem to want to charge for every little extra such as wifi and even printing airline boarding passes. But, I've written them about this aspect encouraging them to drop this policy since it leaves the wrong impression in exchange for truly insignificant revenue.
A great little hotel to which we shall return for our next stay in Cannes.
