My girlfriend and I booked a room at the Miami Sun Hotel for one night before we set sail on a cruise. We checked in and dropped our bags off and immediately left to meet a friend for dinner. Right away we noticed the building and especially our room were filthy. The floors were not clean by any means and the bed did not seem to be either. I convinced my girlfriend it was just for one night and we could deal with it. When we returned from dinner we were asked by a family leaving the hotel where the nearest chain hotel was. They had two young children with them and were disgusted by the cleanliness of the hotel and the fact that there where what seemed to be prostitutes hanging out in the lobby. We went up to our room and took a closer look and found what looked to be blood spots in multiple places in the room. Needless to say we grabbed out bags and checked out of the hotel immediately. The best way I could sum up what the general feel of the hotel was would be a crack house. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone who cares about their safety or health. I tried to make it a cheap one night stay before we set sail and ended up paying the $68 and then walking all over the Port of Miami at 2:00 am looking for a cleaner place. The only one with availability was the Intercontinental, a hotel i would definitely recommend, all in all not a cheap night but at least we were clean and safe!
