Reeked of Fabreeze! King bed mattress soiled and old, Goodwill quality, too hard to sleep on. Spread stained and old. Furniture is Goodwill quality, uncomfortable, soiled and scared. Queen Bed also hard but newer, made a bed out of pillows. No blankets, no dryer vent (FIRE HAZARD), needs baseboard attention. I could go on but there is no need. I... More

Unfortunately our management company does not rent the condo that you have reviewed. If we did, we would make sure that the owner brought this unit up to par before we rented to you as a customer. I am so sorry you have had this bad experience. More

I came with my wife, two kids and parents. We stayed in 405. The unit was very clean and stocked up with the initial essentials (paper products,towels etc) kitchen has all utensils and what not. Great view of the beach. Right on between Pier Park and the whole Wonder works area. Shipwreck island walking distance away. Walmart five minutes away.... More

We stayed here last week and enjoyed it. The 2bdr unit was very clean and well stocked with all kitchen supplies, plenty of bed linens, and towels. The view was great and location was good also. There was plenty to do within walking distance. Parking was tight but it was plentiful. We paid $1900 for the week which I thought... More

We were at this hotel for the Ironman 2013 race in Panama City. I was a little skeptic when we drove up, since the outside wasn't much to look at. I was even more skeptical when I saw that the doors opened from the outside. However, I was quickly proven wrong. The view was incredible. The hotel is right on... More

I have Sterling Reef a 3 rating because we come here for the beach!!! The beach was incredibly dirty and they didn't grate the sand to get rid of all the broken shells either!!! You couldn't hardly walk to the ocean from the condo building without cutting your feet open on the shells, it was awful! We rent a privately... More

Sterling Reef was a stop during a two week vacation, and I think it was one of the best locations during our trip. The beach was unbelievable. We stayed in unit 304 and it fit all our needs. The desk is only open until five, however, it was very easy to access our keys and enter our condo. The unit... More

This condo is independently owned, so it is not managed by Sterling Resorts. And after reading some of the reviews on this property, I think that might be a good thing. Our unit was ready early when we arrived, which was a nice surprise. The condo was very clean and decorated nicely. We had plenty of towels, etc. The kitchen... More
