We have stayed with every establishment in Lava and this place is by far the very best. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms and bathrooms are comfortable, spacious, clean and modern. They are centrally located right on Main Street. They offer a discount breakfast at the Chuck Wagon which is an added plus and their private hot... More

Service was great! Mellow, relaxing and quiet evening. We stayed on a Sunday night, it seamed like we were the only ones, off season, enjoyed a private pool of hoy springs. The staff was very friendly and helpful, Cathy gave us a little tour of rooms available. We really enjoyed our stay in room 2. King size bed, hot tub... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms are in a convenient location to all hot pools. We like being able to park the car and walk while we are here. I like that there are different rooms to choose from.

Aura Soma is a nice little get away from the big city. The hotel is right on Main St. with all of the town's restaurants and shops within walking distance. It also boasts its own private hot pool which is really nice. The reason for the 3 stars is that the beds are a bit uncomfortable and the room we... More

Walking distance to all pools. Friendly helpful staff. Stayed in room 5. It was a bit small room for 1 adult and 3 kids, but comfortable for a short stay. The hot pool on property was quiet and peaceful.

I will say the staff was incredibly friendly. The beds were the worst, uncomfortable and noisy. The power went out all night...no back up generator and no staff on site to deal with extremely noisy guests. 3 phone numbers were listed but no one answered even in the morning. Had to pack in the dark and could not wash hair... More

We stayed in room 2. The tub was amazing. All the staff was so nice. We had the best time. Definitely going back. The chuck wagons food wasn't so good but everything else was perfect. Quiet and pretty. Very relaxing

So impressed with the staff and management. We were stuck in town with no reservations. They bent over backwards to get us set up with their last room; making a bed on the floor for our daughter and even taking care of our pet due to below 0 temps that night! Bed was VERY comfortable, room a bit small but... More

This is THE place to stay in Lava. You get your own house AND your own hot tub. Plus you get the use of the lava pool for Aura Soma guests. The house obviously needs to be updated, but there is some charm to the place. I would be sad if it got too updated. The house is two rooms,... More

We arrived here at the end of a long driving day. It was a warm welcome, great hot soaking pool w/privacy on a Tuesday night, comfy bed and easy to utilize kitchen for dinner. The TV did not have reception. That would have been nice for relaxing after dinner. On the whole, really appreciated ASL and would return if in... More
