This was under renovation so the rooms are the old style - functional but requires cleaning. sofa-bed was very comfy, bathrooms very clean and functional, airy - has porches with nice outdoor seating. TV with some sat-channels to keep kids busy. Restaurant was excellent - very good food. Nice location - quiet. The activity room was kind of abandoned. Hoping... More

The resort boasts of great views of the valley. The only rooms having a great view are the rooms on the 2nd floor. The studios do not have a view at all! The service was poor - we had to wait for 4 hours to get our rooms, though we were promised every 1 hour that our rooms were ready.

Due to the unavailability of Sterling By the Lake, booked this property (Sterling Member for 30 yrs!!!) for 4 adults. We were allocated a 1 BR Apartment that was in pathetic condition. Where do I start? 1. The TV is placed in a manner which makes it practically useless since it faces a solid wall that is 2 feet away... More
