They've done a lot with a few older buildings. The rooms are clean and some freshly remodeled, the beds firm and new. Tim at the desk was super-helpful and the coffee in the lobby is some of the best you'll ever have (note: no coffeemaker in the smaller rooms). Other hotels in town have private hot pools, but looking at... More

The Chalet was large, had lots of beds, and extra pads, extra pillows and blankets, and tons of towels! It was nice for our party of 10 because of the large space in the living and dining rooms. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. We will definitely stay in The Chalet again!

The Staff was so friendly, and very accomidating! Our room was clean, and smelled wonderful. We had access to their private pool, which was secluded, clean and convenient. I can't wait to stay here again!

My husband and I visited Lava Hot Springs for the first time last week. We found that Aura Soma Lava offered rooms for half-price on Tuesdays during the months of February and March, so we were all, "sold!"

The four of us came for a birthday escape for my niece. Aura Soma was a great place to stay. It is in the perfect spot in town to walk to everything we wanted to do. The staff was so kind and so willing to help in any way we needed. Thanks!

We stayed in room 2 and it was nicely remodeled and very clean. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The only complaint we had was the heater was very loud, too loud to sleep with it on. It was our first time to Lava Hot Springs and when Iwe go back, we would stay at Aura Soma again.

We stayed at the Aura Soma and I was grateful we had reservations for one night. We switched to the Riverside Hotel and it was much better. Aura Soma was a mildew and mold infested hotel. I'm still battling bronchitis from my stay!

We had four people in this nice clean room that had everything we needed. The hot pool out back was so nice in the middle of the night after the bar. The staff was so friendly and we felt like we were at home.
