We stayed at this property the night before an early flight. The checking in process was fine and initially when we entered the room it was clean and appeared to be recently remodeled with hardwood floors. Everything was fine until the people above us arrived at 9:00 PM. With the hardwood floors, it was incredibly loud as they walked around and rolled suitcases around. When they used the bathroom, it sounded like a water fall. This continued until at least 1:00 AM. I tried calling the front desk about 10:00 PM to request another room, however no one answered the phone. We had to get up at 4:30 AM and ended up not getting very much sleep We will NOT return to this location.

Adequate and convenient to Santa Clara University down the road and Starbucks across the street. There is no in-room coffee maker or daily cleaning service. We stayed two nights and did not get fresh towels so keep this in mind before throwing any towels on the floor or filling up your garbage can (only one small can in the room). The remodeled room was nice and quiet. I would stay here again but may choose a more full service hotel if I stayed with my spouse.

4 out of 5

Will stay again

Pros: Rooms very clean close to airport
Cons: No coffee maker in room or any free breakfst but Starbucks accros the street
Location: Near Santa Clara University...Several places to eat across the street Safeway in walking distance
Had a conference in Santa Clara did not want to attempt that horrible drive down 880 from East Bay...Booked the Sterling...A good choice....Clean and functional...Easy 10 minute drive instead of 2 hours of grinding traffic...Room was clean, had a full cable TV flat screen small fridge and micro wave.,Starbucks across the street....Kudos to owner spent money on upgrading rooms instead of fancy landscaping or neon signs...So it does look like a Motel from the outside but if you don't want spend $300 and need a clean comfortable room close to San Jose Airport or Downtown San Jose pick the Sterling
