The staff was really nice and helpful. Although we had a huge room which was really nice, we wouldn't stay there again. Breakfasts were terrible - old, stale food with not much assortment. They would be better off not including it and just having hot tea and coffee with some cookies or crackers throughout the day. The fruit that was... More

Full of Character and a genuinely refreshing change from the usual corporate hotel. Staff was wonderfully personable and little touches (like a free glass of wine on the veranda) left a lovely lasting impression.

Friendly no frills hotel. A nice break from the usual chain. Don't expect much out of breakfast. The rooms are big and it's a bit different from where you might usually stay. Wifi is free and worked well. The bathrooms and so forth are all a bit old like going to your grandparents house but I was looking for that... More

I had a meeting in a nearby cookie-cutter hotel and was looking for something with personality (and parking). I found it with the Sterling Hotel. The entry was a bit daunting for those of us with roller bags, due to the stairs up to the entrance. But once there, the house was an elegant reminder of the past with large,... More

Based on the reviews and the fact that the room was $300/night we expected a good experience at The Sterling Hotel but my recent (9/2015) stay was very disappointing. First, there is no onsite parking. When we asked where to park, the desk clerk said we could feed the street meters outside every two hours or park in a garage... More

Pros: The room was large with a four post bed and lots of quaint architectural details. The bathroom was larger, with a spa tub and large glass enclosed shower. Stairs only, no elevator that I saw. Staff helpful and friendly. Con: Free breakfast was adequate, nothing to rave about. No parking lot, only on street parking which was not easy... More

My sister had her wedding here. Nice charming old victorian home redone as a hotel. Very nice bathrooms and comfortable beds. In a quiet neighborhood. The basement is used for wedding receptions so there might be a little noise until 11 p.m. I had a few problems with the key to my room, but the staff was exceptionally helpful and... More

First of all, the hotel is in a great location and many bars/restaurants and the Music theater are walking distance, parking is a block away. The hotel itself is in a nice old building, very photogenic. When we arrived there was a couple waiting for their room, it was after 3pm and the room was not ready. As to our... More

We stayed in the Crocker Suite and absolutely loved it. The staff is very friendly and helpful with information about the local area. We would definitely stay here again, much longer next time, we only stayed one night and were sorry to leave.

I stayed at this hotel 20 years ago. It was pretty good back then. Now the place has cheap sheets, towels, and toiletries. The wifi is spotty as well the service staff are pretty good, but the place is certainly not worth the price. I stay at a lot of hotels; not at this one again
