Amazing Hotel, Great Location, Awesome Experience

Posted Feb 22, 2017
The Sterling Inn and Spa was a fantastic hotel. The rooms are very large, but also very cozy. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel location is under a 5 minute walk to all the attractions on Clifton Hill. I would highly recommend this hotel to couples and families alike. Wonderfully renovated and in a great location.

Valentine getaway

Posted Feb 20, 2017
Asked if we wanted an upgrade for $40 to a "suite". Ok sounds good. Actual cost was $60 more with tax and so not worth it. The suite started with a tiny foyer like room with a small sofa and tv on the wall that just looked awkward. No end or coffee tables just a sofa and tv and very poorly lit. Had a wet bar with mini fridge in this area too. Then you see the bathroom with jacuzzi tub very small spatter jets self cleaning tub not like a large whirlpool jetted tub or hot tub but fine. Saw silver fish around toilet that as gross. Main room had king bed that seemed like mattress saw better days I swear they had a board under mattress sure felt it. Sheets were clean nothing special. Again dark rooms seems very warehouse like on this side of building. Invest in new robes the ines provided seemed a little worn and not quite tattered were not nice fluffy bright white that you would expect. Best part of hotel is the restaurant. Nice touch with the free champagne and snacks at happy hour and special menu for valentines weekend at $69 per couple awesome. Love the atmosphere and decor there too. Staff was fine but I felt the girl could've upgraded us for free since hotel seemed dead. $60 later there goes my value. Hotel needs some fresh furnishings I've said this before, noticed dings and paint chips on furnishings and fresh coat of paint in rooms better lighting in rooms. But reflected in the price original price. Feel taken advantage of with the $60.

Showing wear around the edges

Posted Feb 9, 2017
Pros: The location was good. The in-room continental breakfasts were a treat. The steam shower was a great luxury.
Cons: The loud exhaust fan on the roof should be dealt with. The parking fee was just ridiculous.
Location: We were just a short walk from Clifton Hill, and the new Niagara Falls "Eye".
The building is a renovated dairy, and the exposed brick, high ceilings, and wooden beams certainly give it character. We enjoyed the in-room gas fireplace, and complimentary in-room breakfasts. Our room was spacious, and in many ways inviting, but there are signs of wear and tear. Our bed's king size mattress was propped up in the middle by a plywood board under the main frame. The desk, armoire, and bedside tables showed nicks and scratches that come with normal use, but left the impression the place is in decline. The carpet in the connecting hallways was ugly and sad, and left me wondering if it was a vestige of the buildings' former use as a night club. The pattern screamed 80's airport hotel. 4 things stood out as unfortunate: When we arrived in our room, we noticed a small round black "pebble" on the bedspread, that we chose to believe was a stone, and not a hardened rodent dropping. Our room was on the second floor, and despite the high ceiling, we were subject to a lot of noise originating from a large exhaust fan on the roof. I suspect if we had used the air-conditioning, the noise would have been masked, but it was February. The hotel charged a non-negotiable parking fee of $15 per day. While this might make sense in the busy season, we were definitely there in the off-season. There were several near-empty lots adjacent to the hotel, charging only 4 or 5 dollars per day for parking. This seemed a cheap cash grab on the part of a higher-end hotel.

Nice hotel in the heart of Niagara

Posted Jan 30, 2017
I've been coming to Niagara for years and was surprised to find this hotel tucked away. It's on a quiet street but still within walking distance of all the activity on Clifton Hill. Lots of restaurants in the area which was perfect! The hotel itself is lovely. Our room was spacious with a comfortable bed and fireplace. We also had massages and facials in the hotel spa which were wonderful! Would highly recommend.

Very nice stay

Posted Jan 30, 2017
We stayed at Sterling Inn and Spa for a 2 night romantic getaway and couldn't have been happier. The room was beautiful and the complimentary drinks in the bar were a very nice added touch. We also enjoyed the very nice breakfast in bed. The staff were wonderful and we were a very short walk to the strip and casinos. We would recommend a stay here anytime
