Advertised as an International Hotel near the airport and naming itself Sterling, it claimed three and a half stars. Whoever awarded them must have been on a trip to the stars at the time. The half star alone would have been exorbitant praise. This place is a not very well remodeled, vintage motel. There are signs it may have been a Howard Johnson motel or a Day's Inn in more prosperous times. The electric switches were temperamental. They had to be held firmly to assure contact. The room might have been cleaned with a vacuum cleaner sometime during the past month. When a call was place to the desk because of insufficient towels and cups, the clerk reported that she did not have any more cups. The SI is right next to a Motel Six. Stay there instead.
