The Sterling Hotel, Sacramento
Beautiful Old Mansion with Excellent Location!! Breakfast was Awesome. Room was clean. Expected room to be nicer than what it was. Furniture and Decor was run down and looked like from Flea Market. Bed was way too soft and not comfortable for us, but might be for someone else. Shower inside of large hot tub made it hard to stand up in as it was slick with a lot of room to fall. There is nothing to hold too on the side except the towel bar on the door which is not very sturdy whenever your falling and grab it. Was only given 1 washcloth and no bath mat the second day. Asked for one but never got it. Not a terrible place to stay, but was not what we expected for the price it cost.

Great stay for downtown Sacrament.
It has been about twenty years since we last stayed at the Sterling Hotel. It is still a great boutique hotel in an old large Victorian. The room was decorated nicely in an appropriate style. Apparently all rooms now have a two person hot tub. The continental breakfast is pretty basic; bagels, cold cereal, hard boiled eggs, bananas, juice and coffee. We had a second floor room looking out on H Street and were directly over the breakfast room. However, the room was very quiet through the night and during early hours of breakfast. Hot tub is in need of replacement or repair. There are cracks in the finish of the tub. There are replacement knobs on the hot and cold water valves that don't fit. The handle on the hot water side is pretty stripped and fell off when we touched it. Check in was about an hour late as our room was not ready at 3:00 pm. The hotel is walking distance to downtown restaurants and attractions. Parking is at a garage one block down the street. The garage charges $18.00 for overnight. But hotel gives you a voucher that works in the ticket machine that pays for the parking for you. Nice not to have to shell out extra for parking your car.

Lovely hotel with great service. Our Crocker Suite had a lot of noise and vibrations coming through that wall at the head of the bed and it made it hard to sleep. Either AC units or washer and dryer? Not sure if there is a solution except maybe moving the bed.
