this Hotel was scary. It was very dirty and old. Wiring on the walls. Bed was crooked ad falling apart. I was booked for two beds but only got one and all 3 of us had to sleep in one bed. The hotel stunk and the elevator smelled so bad it made me gag. Some one banged on my door... More

Let me state, always pay attention to the reviews. We figured it can't be that bad. We had problems finding the hotel because of the outside construction. The lobby has wood on the walls. (upgrade in progress I think) We slept in our clothes and we did not dare use the tub or shower. The tub looks like someone hand... More

This hotel should be plowed under! The guy at the front was horrible. He actually hung up on someone trying to book. Then left the receiver off. Bullet holes in the window, horrible conditions. Hookers up and down the street, cops racing by all night. It was horrible and the location was down right scary. So not a place worth... More

Excellent location very friendly and nice staff, I stayed for a whole week without problems and I would do it again, very familiar. I was able to walk everywhere and the bus station and metromover is very close as well.

If you really want to experience this hotel book for Halloween. Will save you money at Miami sun. But give you all the nightmares of universal studio. not much to say other than there was only a bed in the room. Nothing else! No bed side lamps or chest of drawers. The tv wiring danced all over the walls. The... More

Well aware of the cheepness of the hotel - I'm still surpriced over the lack of service and the VERY poor cleaning standard - Why run a hotel if you don't have any interest in giving some kind of positive experience. Very bad experience!

We stayed here for 2 nights, it was a last minute booking and being New Year's Eve, everything was booked up so our choice was very limited. We dint except the hotel to be as bad as it was. The initial impression itself is dismal, the hotel facade and lobby is below average. The room was terrible, with peeling paint... More

Searched forever to find a decent hotel at a decent price located close to downtown or the beaches. Unfortunately everything was either booked or priced well above $200 a night. Stumbled upon Miami Sun Hotel. Reasonably priced considering the outrageous prices for other hotels in the area and I was not planning on doing a hostel (didn't realize we even... More
