My boyfriend and I went on a shopping spree and this hotel did the trick. It's downtown close to the Bayside centre and the baskekball arena. Transportation to get around to 20th street, dolphin mall,mall of america and the airport is very acessible by bus which you can get across the street by the college. The staff are very friendly...

The review of 09 February 2009 by "gvilleguy" is spot on. There are no frills. But I was able to book in advance via a secure payment. This place is as basic as it gets but the front-desk staff are ok and helpful enough, esp. the girl of Chinese origin. Room 210 is next to a generator or such like...

This is a low budget hotel near downtown Miami (not near Miami Beach). I will try to attach some pictures of the room. I certainly cannot recommend this hotel, although for single guys or maybe groups of people who don't have much money, this place is better than sleeping in the gutter. I certainly would not recommend this for couples...

I stay at the Miami Sun occassionally usually for a a couple of weeks at a time and I'm very satisfied. Nobody bothers me, the staff are friendly, and the rooms are comfortable. The other posters must have been hard to please because I have never seen or heard any of the things they describe. The hotel is downtown and...

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...

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...

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...

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,...

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...
