The hotel has a great location. It has two sections, the back is newer but fsection facing the street is a bit tired. The staff is friendly and breakfast good. WiFi is adequate. Pool area is lovely. There was a bit of confusion at check-in but it all worked out. Good Value!

Woof. Don't give them your money. Really tired rooms. Mine was a 3rd floor room, long walk with weird directions. Elevator is not good (tired as everything else). The room smelled bad (moldy/mildewy). Stains on the phone handle and desk. Had to sign a pledge at check-in promising not to smoke in the room. I kid you not. Sign and... More

Stayed here one night for business. The place is in a good location, close to a plaza with restaurants, coffee, etc. There is a renovation of some sorts going on in the front of the property, so rooms closest to the street weren't available. The rooms are spacious, and we had a suite (not sure if this is the standard... More

I spent two nights at the Hotel Aria, only because I HAD to. I needed a hotel for the 11th of November (2014), and this was one of the few places that had rooms available for that time. When I checked in, I noticed that the chairs in the lobby needed to be reupholstered. The arms of the chairs are... More

We went to THE HOTEL ARIA because we knew some people that had stayed the night before. They were quoted $139 for the next night so we went with them to check it out. The girl wanted to charge them $179 and would not honor the quote that was given. The gentleman that was helping my boss and I stepped... More

My credit card was cloned here! Run run run! I stayed in August and 48 hours later I got a call from fraud alert on my credit card! The only place I used that card was at this hotel! The manager took my ID and my credit card in the back, he said his machine was broken at the counter.... More

Pros: Location to Google, ample parking; lobby updated Cons: felt like an apartment complex; despite the lobby--the rooms are from the early 90s; oddly, the cold water worked 50% of the time; old tube tv's; breakfast tasted as if it was re-warmed from an earlier date (stick with the cereal); and of course the Cost--With such a big gap between...

I appreciated the hotel left the breakfast out a full half hour past the posted time. I despise when hotels start clearing the breakfast exactly atthe posted time. This hotel had good food though nothing special but the staff was friendly and relaxed.
