The Sterling Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great stay. Our original room was to be next to the reception room where a wedding was taking place. The desk clerk, Kurt, moved us to a room away from the reception. He was also full of information of the local area. I will be staying here again next time I'm in Sacramento.

The pillows were old and uncomfortable but the overall style of the room was very classy and nice. Breakfast could have been a lil better also. Overall it was nice, no time to enjoy the spa tub tho:(

I felt like I was staying at home. I would come back and stay again.

Always like to see a place with history. Love the uniqueness of each room. Bathroom was huge with a jet tub! Woke up to the sunlight shining thru stained glass windows. A must if you want the charm of old downtown Sacramento.

The hotel itself was an interesting old victorian mansion. that was sort of cool to sleep in, but some parts were not really clean and in disrepair. The ceiling in our room was falling apart and had an amaturish patch done to it. After 1030pm there is nobody at the front desk and the breakfast was supposed to start at 700am, but the person didn't show up till about 720. Went f or a walk in the morning and there were bums sleeping on the sidewalk. Expected a little more for $200 a night.

My girlfriend and I stayed in 1 of the hotels junior suites. We chose this room because it had a double sized jacuzzi tub. The tub was horrible!!! First of all there wasnt enough hot water to fill it even half way. The 4 of the 8 jets popped off even before we turned the jets on and were floating around the tub. When my girlfriend went down to complain they sent someone up to our room to pop the jets back in but they just kept coming off. The pictures on the website make the hotel look dreamy however it was a dump! Definately not worth the money! Also for breakfast all they had was cold or hot cereal They didnt even offer fresh fruit. We were highly dissatisfied with our stay and will never stay there again. NOT WORTH THE $.....stay at an embassy suites or best western youll enjoy your stay!

This quaint hotel was a great local getaway. The staff was amazing and extremely helpful. The mansion offered a unique experience for the ultimate couples night out. I would highly recommend this hotel and plan on returning soon!

Nice clean rooms with spacious tub and shower. Charming older Hotel with all the amenities and a great location within walking distance of restaurants and bars. I would stay again.

the hotel did not appear the same as it looked on the net . And there was construction and remodeling going on at the hotel. it smelled like old moth balls and not very clean. flooring looked old and dirty,the shower did not work properly some of the linen looked dirty like it was not changed out before we checked in.the room was very spacious and appeared clean. there was no continental breakfast there when we went down for the morning . it was early so we left around 9am when we checked out. not a place i would come back to unless it appeared to make the right changes.

friendly staff, beautiful building, good location, potentially nice room but cracked walls, tub and windows, a bit tattered, dusty fake plants

A very comfortable room which was quiet, centrally located and had a historical feel. Only thing missing was larger TV with "In Room" movie options. I will stay at this hotel again and recommend to all my friends. Wish I would have know about it earlier.
