We stayed here for one night. The sink was in the room and not in the bathroom, and the shower in the room we had need some redoing so the weather will go down the drain. Bed was comfortable enough, but the window would not stay open by itself, so a good thing the room had Air Con. Very friendly...

I love this place...tho it is not the typical Miami experience. Miami Sun is a walk into the past, in a good way, and for my Marathon experience. Running the Miami Marathon, this hotel has become something of a tradition. A short walk to the start and finish, Miami Sun has the perfect location. If you are coming for the...

I must say again, the staff was incredible! Super friendly from the first contact to me checking out early. Can't say enough how nice they were. 5 stars for customer service. 0 stars for the room... The room was very old and the bed made noises if you even looked at it. I bet they could find a better mattress...

We just needed a room to stay the night, and this hotel was enough for that, is very cheap, but I think you could stay at something better if you do a good search online. The rooms are very very small and it smells like cigarette smoke.

Location is perfect, just 2 blocks from Bayside Marketplace and a nice café pavillon for having breakfast close by. The rooms are quite old and small but when you are just spending the nights there it is absolutely okay. You also got a fridge in the room. The staff at the reception is very attentive, friendly and helpful.

This hotel is ideal for people looking for a cheap place to spend a day or two in Miami. A short walk to the bayside shopping centre and pretty much in the centre of downtown. The rooms are small and have the basics, but it was exactly what we needed for our trip. Uber pool cost us $3 each way...

What can I say about this place "we was desperate" after being scammed at a close by condo. We had been traveling for over 23 hours (from Australia) after checking a couple of other close by hotels with no luck as they were full we were stuck with this hotel.

Worst experience and the owners want your payment but have no respect for you. The entire family live in the rooms of the hotel. We stayed for a week and watched how owners were disrespectful of Islanders and Hispanics with their characterization of those individuals. Find another hotel with a cleaner environment, better rapport, and are concerned for the appeal...
