Rated 2 out of 5 by DirkDallas Lost reservation
A business associate and I recently stayed at this hotel for business travel. we arrived and they had lost the reservation for my female business associate. We had the confirmation number from the travel coordinator that had been confirmed by the hotels site manager. But the the night staff swore they were full and could not accommodate the missing reservation. after much argument they finally decided to "walk" us to another hotel. "walking" is the industry standard that they find you an equal or better room with another hotel. They called around and sent us to a Knights Inn 2 miles away. we arrived at the Knights Inn and found it to be a dive hotel with broken windows and holes in the doors and floor. it was a dump. this staff is unprofessional and not to be trusted. they dumped us at another property to just get rid of us.

Rated 4 out of 5 by D0903 Staff exceeded expectations
I was very tired after a week of business travel with 2 more nights still to go. The staff treated me like they actually cared if my needs were getting met. A woman named Betty greeted me in the club lounge 10 minutes after they closed for breakfast. Instead of glibly telling me they were closed (which they've don't to me a number of times at certain Westin's I've been to) Betty said she would get me a menu, cleaned a table for me, and didn't treat me like a problem. I'm writing this positive review because of her selflessness. Its always that staff that make it or break it for me at a Starwood.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JJones12525 Hotel Needs Upgrade
This hotel is AMAZING for the price! You can't beat it when you think value. However it is out dated, and needs desperate upgrade. They have started but are moving way too slowly. The new owners need to step up their quality on property to match SPG's service level. Please Sheraton! I used to stay there all the time, and finally I just couldn't take it anymore. Loose Power outlets, old furniture, old everything!

I have stayed at this hotel several times; I have never been unsatisfied. This is the first time I had to change rooms; the first room they gave me had cigarette smoke smell. Although they immediately changed my room, the second room also smelled weird. Was to tired to change again. I am hoping it was an isolated incident and not a quality control issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grate300 Staff / Club Lounge
I checked in just after midnight at this property. I was greeted by the front desk, and check-in was super quick. The property is extremely clean, and staff is outstanding. I want to commend the entire staff, but one person in particular. Brian, in the club lounge, was absolutely accommodating!! I was greeted when I walked in, had breakfast, and he was extremely attentive. He went out of his way, and made sure we were taken care of. Like I said before, I have stayed at MANY SPG properties, but this employee took pride in his work. He was ALWAYS doing something in the lounge, and made the customer a priority. When he wasn't dealing with a customer, he was picking up dishes, cleaning tables etc. Even after breakfast was over, he was in there making the place spotless. I don't know how long he has been working there, but I hope management can commend him on a phenomenal job!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bkeith2 Good Hotel
This was a great hotel for the price. Good food, clean, and helpful staff. My only complaint would be the noise of the room doors. Though the rooms have been updated the hotel room doors have not. So, the closers for all the old heavy doors will slam shut. Hearing this at all hours was a pain.

We travel extensively and by far you have the best staff at every level !!!!
The pool is so nice to be able to go to while my husband is working.
Will always stay there when it that area.
My husband has advised the rest of his staff to use this hotel in the future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JJones12525 Ehh... What happened?
Sheraton Ontario used to be a great place to stay. The hotel is dated and really needs to be updated. I hope the remodel is coming soon to this property. There needs to be a greater focus on the small things, and customer service. Things like loose power sockets, and computers that dont work, no one in the restaurant to greet you.. all issues.

I stay at the Sheraton when I have to be at the airport early the next morning. The staff gets me in quickly so I can get some sleep and gets me out fast. Very nice hotel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JJones12525 Nice, Needs improvement.
The Sheraton in Ontario is a decent place to stay, with easy parking, and a very friendly staff. This Sheraton however is dated, and the hotel needs to be fully remodeled ASAP. It's not dirty or run down by any means. It's just old, doesn't quite have that nice Sheraton feel to it. The rooms have old fixtures, and outlets. For the price you can not complain much.
There also appears to be a lack of attention to detail at this property from the engineering staff. Crooked light fixtures, burnt out bulbs, loud elevators, loose wall sockets, and other small things that people I'm sure notice
I would encourage the management to spend a few days doing a full walk through of the hotel, room by room.
Would recommend this hotel to people looking for a place to stay on a budget. The Four Points not far away offers a more luxurious experience. I will continue to visit, as I do enjoy the staff, and I hear that they are starting to put new furniture in the rooms.

We could not sleep at night because of the air conditioner noise. Much to warm to turn it off at night, particularly on higher floors which are supposed to be nicer--Club floor.
Complained and moved to another room, with different air conditioner but also noisy. Unable to open windows, so did not sleep well for 3 night stay.

Rated 1 out of 5 by trojanfan Bad customer service by front desk
I had booked a reservation for this hotel through the SPG website. I had a copy of the confirmation email that I received 3 days prior to my arrival.
Upon arriving at the hotel, the 2 CSRs were not able to locate my reservation, even with the confirmation number. They had to ask for help from a co-worker who was not officially working at the time to help check me in. They had to call SPG to confirm my reservation they set up a new reservation for my stay. The whole process took at least 30 minutes. Towards the end, they asked if I would like to pay for an upgrade to a club level room. I kindly asked if they can upgrade me for free for all the trouble my wife and I had with the check in process. They refused to give me a free upgrade.
Since the issue was not the fault of the customer, I did not think my small request was too much to ask. And they even acknowledged that I was not the first confirmed reservation they had that day.
Definitely could have done more to keep a customer happy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PhilipRoss A comfortable place to take the Bar
Arriving a couple days before the California Bar Exam, I asked for the quietest room they had left. The staff accommodated me as best they could, giving me a room towards the end of a hallway, which was nice. A girls' tennis tournament was being held during part of my stay and I would note that the shrieks of adolescent girls can definitely make it through the hallways and doors. Otherwise, it was relatively quiet. Room service was quick and decent quality. The bed was comfortable. Despite the California drought, water in the shower was plentiful and there was never an issue with hot water (something I am really sensitive about when I travel). While not the fanciest place on the planet, this was a SOLID place to stay and one that I would definitely recommend to others planning to visit the convention center. Finally, I would note that walking to the convention center seemed like quite a hike the day I arrived. It is several blocks and, in the heat, you are likely to notice them. Just so, after acclimating, the hike isn't bad at all. While there are other hotels immediately adjacent to the convention center, I think the extra few minutes each way are more than manageable and they put you right past a good Indian buffet, a Subway restaurant, and a convenience store, all of which came in handy for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by chgogid Unpleasant stay, does not live up to the Sheraton Name
Stayed here for a night, arrived at 5pm, booked a room on the executive level. Checked in, lounge was supposed to be open I believe at 5 pm or 5:30pm but no one there and no food! It came 15 minutes later. Room was dated and air-conditioner as loud as a freight train. Room doors bang when they close if you don't hold on to them. As a result, Banging doors past midnight till 1:30am , obviously, I had a sleepness night. Flush in toilets are the high pressured suction flushes, when next room flushes, you hear it! The morning of my departure, I chose to have breakfast in the restaurant. It was set up in a temporary room away from the restaurant. The place was a disaster, tables (perhaps 10 make shift ones) were not cleaned. Waited a moment for one to be cleaned, halfway done and still dirty, nonetheless was seated. Breakfast was so bad, I would have opted for IHOP Instead! Nothing looked appetizing at all. Ate quickly and left because I could no longer stand the hotel. At check out, I was asked how was my stay, I told the girl behind the desk UNPLEASANT! She asked why, I didn't want to go into much detail but told her of the noisy aircon which didn't work well, and the banging doors. She apologized and told me she would deposit 500 points into my account. Now what good is 500 points when you need at least 4000 points for a lousy Starwood hotel these days. Amazing. If you want to compensate, do it right, don't do it in an embarrassing way! totally not right. That was my experience at the Sheraton Ontario. I will not choose this hotel again whenever I am in the area! Better options elsewhere, like Aloft in Rancho Cucamonga, fresher, newer and a lot better service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FiatLux Terrific Service - FANTASTIC food in club lounge
This is a great little property. They recently renovated the lobby, which really opened and freshened up the lobby. It's much brighter now. The rooms are what you would expect from a nice Sheraton. Very comfortable beds. My one little suggestion for improvement is that I don't find the wing back chairs particularly comfortable. I think for a hotel room a club chair with ottoman is better.
The club lounge deserves a special call out. The food they offer, particularly in the evening, is among the best I have ever had in one of these lounges. And that is saying something considering this is not a large property. It's a great selection of at least two hot entrees, sandwiches and cold cuts, cold vegetables, crackers, cheeses etc... a wonderfully eclectic selection of sodas (GRAPE AND STRAWBERRY!!! I felt like I was a kid again). Breakfast is also very good with what you would expect, cereals, pastries, bagels fruits etc... And they had a bowl of mixed berries that was wonderful.
The fitness center is well equipped and there is a nice pool.
I did have a problem with the wireless internet. It simply didn't work. Anyone who travels a lot knows how annoying that can be. The wired worked but in this day and age you don't want to be tied to the desk in the room. Now this would have normally brought down my star rating, but the General Manager Alfonso T was SO INCREDIBLY AWESOME about addressing it, I let that go (we'll see if it's better the next time I am there!). Seriously I want to emphasize just how terrific he was in proactively approaching me about it. This also means someone on his staff must have taken note to pass along this information, which means they're being trained well! To be clear, I am not a boisterous complainer... I had only contacted the front desk to let them know there was a problem. So his staff was well turned to customer service. Just count me as very impressed.
I think I have stayed at this hotel about ten times on business. I have stayed at far too many airport / non downtown hotels. They can be depressing. The service can be perfunctory. Not remotely true with this Sheraton. It is without a doubt in the top few at which I've stayed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dugger60 This hotel did not meet expectations for 60th Birthday Celebration
The purpose of travel was a Birthday celebration not a wedding. I signed contract on January 25, 2014 for the Sheraton to host my husbands 60th birthday party. A room block agreement was established. As well as a web link for guest to book online, which consisted of over 60 characters to include question marks, = signs, & characters. https://www.starwoodmeeting.com/StarGroupsWeb/res?id=1404016764&key=C2C2AF9. It wasn't as simple as a cut and paste as this link was communicated via a mailed invitation!!
Try entering this from a smart phone, or an IPad. Most of the guest gave up trying and called or booked thru other sites. As the guest arrived and began checking in they were scattered all throughout from the 2nd-5th floor, randomly placing them. Several guest (at check in time) were informed there room was not yet available. Again Room Block Agreement not met.
It is my understanding a room Block Agreement meant a designated block of rooms are set aside where all guest would be near one another and their room would be ready upon arrival. Our suite was not available at the check in time, we were told a "Platinum" member was in our room and have preference of choice to check out at their leisure. I understand "Platinum" perks, however if another guest has reservations for that same suite those perk accommodations must be met in another room or suite! This was a 4-day event with all activities communicated thru the hotel coordinator.
The party venue was amazing, however there was loose carpeting in which several guests tripped and stumbled over, early on I was told there would be 2 bartenders servicing the party, that was not the case, which became a major distraction to the party. The hotel was informed of the number of guest attending brunch on Sunday, which they were unprepared for staff wise. The food was cold, service was slow. Overall the hotel was not prepared for the event, the accommodations as promised or agreed upon and the billing is another disappointing issue in which I will contact the hotel directly on. * Be sure to check your invoice for overcharged or unauthorized items!!*
The Staff: They were not empowered to assist in any way other than to apologize for the inconveniences. General Manager, nor assistants were never around, except Friday night of the event, when were paid a visit by Alphonso who warned and threatened to "Shut us Down!! Only to discover there were other guests throughout the hotel hosting in room events.

Rated 1 out of 5 by InNOutSavedUs Out-dated, Poor Service
Stayed here on 2 occasions while en route back to Los Angeles. Hotel is in bad need of updates- Sheraton must've overlooked this property when doing its billion-dollar renovations. The rooms and the overall hotel were literally falling apart and are seriously outdated. Much of the place is in need of repairs and a major overhaul. Many of the staff members were completely inept- constantly had to remind the front desk of late checkout requests, club access, etc. There was no clear chain of command as far as the staff was concerned-- I have to reiterate: AWFUL experience. On one occasion, the staff member was first to acknowledge SPG Gold status, without us first having to correct them or request for the usual guaranteed amenities. Terrible SPG recognition skills. As for the club room, it's ridiculous that they actually charge guests for access to its mediocre, minuscule helpings. And although there was barely the standard fare, there always seemed to be an obvious item missing, ie no milk for coffee/cereal in the AM, batter for waffles in fridge but waffle maker had been stored (ironically, this was the only day of our stay in which the waffle maker was NOT awkwardly sitting out for no reason...) Overall, this is one of the worst Sheratons I've ever stayed at, without going more in-depth as to the numerous nuances and oversights. If you're in Ontario, I would stay just about anywhere else. This place barely scrapes by as a 3 star property. The In-N-Out across the street from this place is what earns it the first 2 stars anyways. Definitely check out the In-N-Out instead of checking into this Sheraton!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dmilsi Pleasantly Surprised
I wasn't relishing the thought of staying in Ontario during an August heat wave, but this hotel made it a more pleasant experience. I was struck by the friendliness of all the staff including Frankie at the front desk, who recognized my SPG status by assigning me a room on the Club floor and giving me amenity points as well as lounge vouchers for evening hors d'oeuvres and breakfast. The room was compact, but had a comfy arm chair and an ultra-comfy bed. There was a flat-screen TV and speedy, complimentary WiFi. I used the gym, which had a good array of equipment, but didn't see the pool. Breakfast included scrambled eggs, potatoes, bacon, along with fruit (including fresh berries), yogurt, cereal etc. All in all, a great stay.

I was here on business for 3 weeks. I can't say enough about the service and friendliness of the staff, from the front desk, engineering, waitstaff and club level lounge associates. I was treated great, my room was well maintained and I couldn't of been more comfortable. I was able to take advantage of the club level, the pool/jacuzzi, and the lounge. I also have to add, Armando was awesome. He was consistently trying to recitify the internet challenges that you faced and was always pleasant and helpful. A shout out as well to your front desk associates, every morning and night they were so pleasant. I would highly recommend your hotel and look forward to coming back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mtnspapro Love the Hotel but airport service was unacceptable!
I love this hotels rooms and comfort. It is quiet, clean, and comfy! I have stayed here 4 times in the last few months. My problem was that when I called to be picked up from the airport - it took 40 minutes for a shuttle to come. It was raining lightly and there was little protection at the shuttle area. By the time it arrived I was drenched and exhausted. (I was just recovering from Pneumonia! )If it was going to be that late, they should have told me. I would have gotten a taxi. When I brought it up to them - they offered 500 points! This was insulting as a free night there is 4,000 points! I am staying again tomorrow night and hopefully the service is better when I need a shuttle!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Stayfun72 Could be better with a few tweaks
Overall this should have been a great experience. Staff was nice, lobby/room seemed nice. Beds, however, were very uncomfortable and there seemed to be a high humming sound that we could hear when the ac fan was off as well as the next room over's whiny water. We switched to the other bed in the room for the second night and it was a little better. Someone started power washing outside our window at 9 am on a Sunday. Wait staff wasn't very well versed in breakfast menu and Eggs Benedict came swimming in sauce. Not sure that I got my welcome amenity. WIFI too slow and requires payment for better service. Mentioned two of the many issues at check out, and they kindly said they were sorry, which was nice, but I like to hear "I'll check right on that," even if they don't. It seems like this hotel has the right ingredients to be a great hotel, just a lot of little maintenance and training things to be addressed. On the plus side great pressure and hot water from the showers. And if you stay in a different room or part of the hotel you might not notice any of these things.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jelly14 Could be a 4 star hotel w some attention!
The hotel overall was fair, loved all the granite, however the front and outside all needed maintenance, rust & chipped paint is easy to keep up & important for first impression. All staff was on the phone when we arrived, no acknowledgment & had to wait awhile to get service, then they couldn't accommodate to king beds or upgrades. We were hosting family in other rooms, so this hotel was a little embarrassing. The Restaurant switched to a hotel room for breakfast & couldn't accommodate everyone so we left the hotel to eat. No one in our 3 rooms wanted to try the restaurant again. Rooms & beds were nice-best part of the stay. Overall 3 star, but could easily be a 4 star if maintenance & service were paid attention to.
