We picked this place for its location and price, which are great if you want to be in downtown Miami. We are low budget travelers with low expectations. However, the Miami Sun is a place like no other. If you are looking for an experience you will find it here. We had some hesitations about this motel. It looked really... More

If you want to read a horror story keep reading my review. This place is a roach motel. This is the worse Hotel I have ever seen; I can't understand why the city of Miami would allow it to remain open. I needed to stay for a week on business in downtown Miami, so I start looking for a simple... More

We couldn't figure out why the building hadn't been condemned. The property is in unbelievable disrepair but the staff was super friendly and helpful especially Susan and Dolores. Our first room was very noisey because of a connecting door with the adjacent room. The towels were as thin as sheets, the pillows as thin as towels and the sheets like... More

My husband and I come down to Miami every winter to escape the cold and we love The Miami Sun. The staff are so friendly, they help with arranging tours, transportation, and even let me in on some secret shopping spots to get good deals. We love to spend time in the lobby chatting with the European and Carribean travellers... More

Miami Sun Hotel is a great budget hotel. I needed to be Downtown for business and didn't want to spend a whole lot of money. It was a clean but simple room. There is a resturant next door, the staff was friendly and helpful. For the price I was very happy. The locations is great. Walking distance to the Courthouse,... More

This was the worst hotel I have stayed at in a very long time. I was just looking for a decent, quiet place to chill out for a night (maybe order a pizza and watch some ESPN), but couldn't even do that. The TV didn't work and I was more concerned about the cockroaches and the drug deals going on... More

Booked this on hotwire.com as a two star. the boat show was in Miami and nothing... I mean nothing.. was left. I've had great love for Hotwire.com and figured a two star would be ok for a night. Problems: 1)Cockroaches in lobby and in room 2)Doors with hack marks around locks like they'd been picked or kicked (several rooms). 3)Several... More
