Enjoyed the service and stay so much at aura soma! Great updated room, nice private hot springs on the porch of the honeymoon Suite and a lovely one for hotel guests a shirt walk away but by the river. Very helpful staff. Lots of upgrades and new stuff happening at Aura soma, should be fun to see how the business... More

All the places in Downtown Lava Hot Springs are "older". We stayed in the front part facing the main road. I did not notice any noise after I went to bed. The staff was so very nice from beginning to end. The room was very clean and unique. Soaking in the Secluded Hot Pool felt so good in the 7... More

We stayed in room 16 in their Galleria area and there was a metal stairway attached to the side of the room outside. All evening until about midnight people were going up and down the stairs and it was very loud. We asked the owner for a refund or even a discount and she refused . The beds were uncomfortable...

We stayed in a courtyard room for Xmas Eve again this year. Got blessed by a snow storm ending that morning and enjoyed excellent XC skiing before soaking in Aura Soma's awesome pool. As always, the suite was well equipped, even providing a small tree, and we were welcomed by friendly front desk personnel. Our dog was welcome, too, and... More

We stayed here in Dec 2015. We had room #7, which had a queen bed & bunk bed. The room was very clean and fit our needs well. Kathy, at the front desk was so friendly and made you feel like family. We also tried the hot pool just around the corner from our room. It was so relaxing! If... More

They offer very comfortable, clean and not expense rooms. The staff is extremely friendly. I would stay there again and I highly recommend you to do the some. They have a private hot pool and rooms with Jacuzzi. We are definitely coming back soon.

My sister and I got to Lava Hot Springs before my son who had booked the room. Cathy gave us the keys and told us to have my son come by when he got there. She was so sweet and answered our questions. When my son came I went with him to pay and we had to wait a few... More

I was meeting a college friend and she's stayed here before. There was a new building and we were given a tour. The new building was two story and the rooms were very nice and a little more expensive. We were in an older one story building pictured and our room was the green door, number 6 I think. It's...

My husband & I stayed here after checking out some rooms at other hotels in town. We chose this one because there were no unpleasant smells or deodorizers used in the rooms and because it was so clean & perfectly tidy. The staff was extremely friendly, pleasant and accommodating to all of our needs & it was a great deal.... More

Stayed for the weekend with my wife. Nice clean rooms, really enjoyed the stay other than the low beam on the water closet door frame. Very central in the little town of Lava. Staff mentioned they are also beginning remodeling. Private pool area was also clean and peaceful. Remodel or not I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
