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

Upon finding this hotel, it was totally unrecognizable of pictures shown. Shady looking characters abounded. The cab driver who drove us to this place was even scared. Left us standing there with our luggage and raced away. When we made our way in I was chased down by some man demanding to know if I had parked my car in... More

Thinking the reviews were just angered guests, and reading some positive reviews, I decided to book a "suite" at the Miami Sun. Homeless and drug addicts hanging outside the front doors. The front desk attendant was shoeless with his feet up on the desk. The elevator smelled like cigarettes, musk and mold. I was scared to look and see if... More

The only good thing about this place is the distance to ultra. Rooms were Filthy, bathroom was tiny, only a fridge in there, not even a microwave. The receptionist was friendly, but I don't think ill be staying there again, especially for that price!!

I am a frequent traveller however my first time in Miami. My worst hotel experience ever! The motels that I stayed at roadside paying mere 10-15 bucks were far far better than this place! Tiny cubby hole type rooms. I, with my 5'8" height and 140 lbs weight could not take shower in the tiny shower place, you can't stand... More
