I will vote for the boiling miniprep if it is the manual sequencing.
However, if you are going to use dye terminating sequencing it will give
you the heck result (maybe the contaminated small RNA fragment acts as a
non-specific primer). I could have gotten very nice and stabe result
almost every time by using Quiagen kit. I think you can also use Promega
miniprep kit if their claim is right (Everybody in the world knows that
Promega kit once gave us a hard time, but they say they changed the salt
concentration of washing buffer, and now give us a very nice result).
BioRad miniprep kit (I don't know they still sell it) using diatomaceous
earth looks also giving a nice result.

Hope it helps;
