Hotel Sterling
Ranked #1 of 2 Monroe B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 28, 2013

This was almost a perfect lodging experience. The concept is great. Minimal staff (we saw no staff over two days) allowed for an outstanding price. Our small suite was perfectly appointed.
There really was nothing that we needed that we didn't have. Monroe itself is an unexpected pleasure as well. About 45 minutes from Detroit, with easy access to Ford attractions in Dearborn, but with a quiet small town atmosphere and a lovely river walk. We actually wanted to cover Detroit and Cleveland in this road trip so Monroe proved the perfect spot. The Hotel Sterling is really lovely so please take a chance and stay there. They deserve to do very well in their business.
This is not a bed and breakfast. Trip advisor lists it as such, but it is not.
We hope to see more of this type of concept hotel.
Highly recommended.

Amazing hotel, only wished we were staying longer. Breakfast from the stocked fridge was excellent, the room spacious, clean and very comfortable and parking straight outside a gem. We arrived late in the evening and needed the code we were given to access the building. Everything was perfect!

Nicely decorated, small hotel in downtown Monroe. Our room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The food items (mentioned in other reviews) are a nice plus. The hotel is so small (13 rooms?) that staff is not always at the desk, so make your reservation ahead! We happened to be in town on one of the summer Thursday evenings of Monroe's "River Raisin Jazz Series"- enjoyed wonderful music with our dinner at McGeady's. Jazz musicians were featured at other nearby venues as well.

Pros:
1) The small fridge was stocked with water, pop, milk, yogurt and juice.
2) Breakfast items were provided (cereals, breakfast bars, fruit and instant oatmeal).
3) Spacious room.
4) Room was quiet. We didn't hear any noise from nearby rooms.
5) Free local and long distance calls.
6) Comfortable chairs and the TV rotates from facing the living area to facing the bed.
7) Room was very clean.


Cons:
By far the worst part of the room is the bedding.
1) The comforter was stained (see photo). Yuck!
2) The pillows had stains on them.
3) The mattress pad had stains on it and it had several holes in it.
4) The pillows needed to be replaced. They were lumpy and uncomfortable.
5) The clothes iron had a large gummy burnt spot on the bottom. After I plugged the iron into the outlet, it began to smoke and give off a very bad odor.

Overall, Our stay here was pretty good. Its just hard to ignore stains on the bed you are sleeping in!

Room Tip: Choose a top floor room for a quiet stay.

Beautiful room. Very comfortable bed. Nice treats for breakfast in a fridge. Microwave. Good coffee. Nice area. Not expensive and totally worth it. My brother in law suggested it when I was hesitating about where to stay in the area. We'll definitely be back!

I was visiting a friend for her daughters wedding, they recommended the Hotel Sterling. I was so impressed, it was like a top notch New York Hotel...It was spacious, Clean and just so tastefully decorated. It was comfortable and I love the privacy. at first not having the Hotel staff around was kind of weird, but I must say it totally worked. I would highly recommend The Hotel Sterling, one of the best if not the best Hotels Ive stayed in.......

Room Tip: enjoy!!!!!!!!

Ikea-style remodel, marble flooring, roman shades, comfortable bed. I only have good things to say about this place. Nice in-room fridge stocked with items for a continental-style breakfast, and keurig coffee maker- all included in the price of the room. This is a stellar example of an independent business outperforming chain hotels. I'd definitely recommend this place, and would stay there again.
