Sterling was the fourth and last of a four day marathon series for my wife. We found the hotel to be clean , very comfortable with pleasant staff. It was conveniently located near to the marathon site. The only issues was that my Garmin could not locate the street address and it is a two story hotel without an elevator... More

This hotel offers 5 star service at a family friendly rate. Clean rooms, friendly service. Breakfast offered a nice variety of hot and cold items. Guest Laundry was near our room, so we took advantage of the opportunity to catch up on doing laundry. Only glitch was the dryer vents had both become unconnected, so the small room filled with...

We just finished a 12 hour drive from Illinois. We had reservations here and was greeted with a friendly staff member after very long day of driving. Our room was clean and roomy. Perfect for a nights rest. The morning "breakfast included" meal was very good. It was a buffet of eggs, add your own cheese and ham. Biscuits and... More

Loved my room - 136 - outside and inside entrance - comfy and very nice. The only reason this hotel did not get 5 stars - the creamer for my coffee was powder - they did have flavored 1/2 & 1/2 but only a powdered version for those of us who don't like flavor in our morning coffee. Staff was... More

Our family arrived late in the night & check in was easy & quick. Staff was friendly. Beds & pillows were comfy. Breakfast was yummy, filling & well stocked. Dining area was clean as well. Outdoor heated pool was a bonus for the kids. Indoor pool was closed for repairs. Would visit again..

The room was nice and clean but it was more like a motel. You parked outside your door. I felt a little unsafe. Breakfast was good. Fresh cookies at check in. The in room coffee was pretty good. Front desk lady was nice. I would probably stay there again. Sterling does not have many places to choose from.

I've stayed at the Sundowner a couple of times in the past few years. It is clean, well managed and pleasant. However it is overpriced. That being said, one pays the price if one doesn't want bed bugs and cockroaches as your guest. I've also stayed at the Ramada (about a mile away) and you get extra guests there.

Was like a bad Super 8 but way overpriced. Location was right off I76 but there's not much around it. Wish there had been a thermostat...was too warm in the room for me. Seemed clean enough. Outside entrance was nice to have. Had good internet. Too bad the room smelled like a locker room!
