The Aria is nothing special, but it was fairly cheap, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean and spacious. I didn't get to use the pool, but it also seemed nice enough (although not the best looking pool in the world). Unfortunately when my colleagues and I got home we found out our credit cards had been cloned... More

There just is no where else in Mountain View you get as much for your money as Hotel Aria. Seriously, the place has an awesome pool! What other budget hotels can you lie outside and feel you are in Hollywood and cool down in the heat? It´s the best. The other part about this hotel that is awesome: the wifi!... More

Terrible, craphole, smelly, I was on third floor and when the elevator opened it was like a blast furnace, the upper floor was hotter than any place I've ever been, no air movement, smells rank. The room was no better. It took my breath away. I put the AC on full blast and left for 3 hours, when I returned... More

Pros: Close to lots of shops/restaurants Price Friendly front desk staff Free wi-fi Free parking Felt safe Cons: Old rooms Phone/lamp didn't work No elevator Barely any amenities in room (not even a cup) Free breakfast horrible! Greasy sausage, eggs with America cheese, stale breads (like it's been sitting in the refrigerator); cereal tasted like generic supermarket brand, awful coffee

Hotels should provide two things: comfortable beds, and quiet. This hotel is very loud. The first room I was put it suffered long periodic bouts of loud mechanical humming. I think this was coming form the ice machine, which was crammed under a stairwell against the walls so that the sound transduced directly into the structure. I moved to a... More

Seriously, I booked something in a hurry, and I was hoping to find a good place to stay for the price that they charged, and it turned out to be one of the worst hotel that I have... More

I searched a long time to find a hotel that was reasonably priced for the area and this one was excellent value. The area was safe, the amenities were good for a 3 star hotel, the hotel was clean and well-managed. The room appeared to be upgraded so no complaints. Pool and hot tub worked well and appeared to be... More

My travel agent booked this hotel for me as the Summer prices at my usual hotel were sky high. I was really sad after reading the reviews that I was staying at the Hotel Aria. I arrived in the evening and was a bit skeptical of the property. The two front desk clerks were fantastic! I was put in the... More

I understand that this hotel may be lower priced than other hotels in the area, but there's a reason for that. The whole place needs to be updated - hallways, lobby, especially the rooms. I heard that some of the rooms may have been updated, but not mine. I was immediately brought back to my childhood. If you ever wonder... More
