My friend and I stayed in this dump then woke up COVERED IN BED BUG BITES. OUR WHOLE BODIES ARE COVERED AND ITCHING. Im positive its bed bugs after doing some research. The Asian lady that runs the place denies it and says we brought them in with us which is ludicrous. We were denied a refund and called scum.... More

The worst experience of our lives. The room was dirty and the air conditioner howled like a banshee. We were denied the refund of our remaining deposit past the first night, but were glad to get out - just to be far away from this cesspool.

My friends and I stayed the night in St. Pete last minute and could not find any vacancies that were affordable in the area. When we came across Sun Island, we thought we found a good deal, it being fairly cheap. We were sadly mistaken. Upon walking into the disgusting room, I noticed that the very old couch was covered,... More

My husband and I had to stay at this motel because of the snowbird season and all the decent motels were full. I do have to say that the owner (Tang), a chinese woman who doesn't speak much english, was as helpful and accomodating as she could have been. We got the last room available but it was just a...

Don't stay here! I had reservations for several months secured with a credit card. Our plane landed at 5:50 pm, which the owner of the motel was well aware of since we had corresponded several times prior to our trip. Owner knew we weren't supposed to check in until 6-7 pm that night. We had a taxi drop us off... More

It is so pathetic it's as if the owner is trying to create a bad experience for you. Everything is old and dirty at this place. The screens on the windows don't even close. Every room smells like 10 people were chain smoking in it for 10 years. No Wifi, towels look like they were bought when Carter was still... More

The police are constantly there because of drug dealers and fighting. Rooms are small and dirty and everything smells like cigarette smoke. Bathroom is yucky and mouldy. Never once were we brought clean towels or linens. Road noise was so loud you could not sleep. Pool did not have circulating water running through it and was all full of algae.... More
