We love this place. We stay here every time we go out there. Very friendly staff and a tucked away little hot pool. Very cute comfortable rooms. Also it's very close to the public hot pools and right off the river. Convince not location.

ALS has a natural springs hot pool on site, which made our stay less costly and more enjoyable. They also have a lot of half price days during the week, so it's good value for the money. It's located within walking distance to all of the downtown shops and restaurants.

Clean rooms and friendly, attentive staff. The hotel is located on the main street of Lava Hot Springs, which makes it convenient to sights and restaurants, but the central location also contributed to late-night noise during our stay (from teens on the main drag, not other hotel guests). Nevertheless, the hotel offers very good value for the price.

Stayed with my family and had a nice, relaxing weekend! The town is charming. The pool temperature was perfect to offset the child January temperature. The cottage had bedroom and a pull out twin with a twin bed underneath with a kitchen and bathroom. We made all our food at our rental. They had thought pans etc. the hot tub... More

Bothered by cigarette by the back door as we dont smoke. The carpet by the big bathtub needs to come out its smelly. We will be back great staff and we like it there. This was our second stay. I love the hot tub on the deck wish all the units had them.

Having not been to Lava Hot Springs in many years we were unfamiliar with any of the hotels and honestly took a shot in the dark when we selected Aura Soma Lava. What a blessing! We stayed in room 9 which had a private privacy fenced area with a hot tub that had the hot mineral waters piped in. While... More

We stayed at the Chatel in Lava Hot Springs with 12 people! Ten kids and two adults. Everyone had enough space to call their own and we found beds for all as well. This house is very spacious with a great kitchen and great location in town. The private mineral pool was perfect. We will definitely stay here again.

We stayed in the Cottage for a long weekend, and loved it. We had a full kitchen and sleeping space for 4 of us. The room was clean and the people were great. The night before we left it snowed a few inches and the maintenance man was out there shoveling off the snow before we were even ready to... More

We stayed in room 9 and loved it. The full size kitchen had everything and was nice. Also the private hot tub was awesome to have just right outside the room. Rooms were clean and very nice. We'll go there again when we return.

The people who helped us were super-nice. The room was very clean, and we had our own kitchen and hot tub to use (Courtyard 9!). The wi-fi was a bit spotty but much, much better than last time. Our go-to place to relax.
