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

The hotel was great. Tv next door was loud all night and the young kids in the hot pools upon arrival were a little roudy. Showers went from scolding hot to freezing cold with no warning. But all in all it was a good time. Breakfast at the Chuckwagon was amazing!!

Cute little shop in the lobby. Lots of parking. The private hot pool was great! Within walking distance to most things... More

My friend and I have visit ASL once a year for the past 12 yrs. It is always very relaxing and restful. She lives in Northern Idaho and I live in SLC so it is a great place to meet up. There are several other small hotels but we prefer ASL for the large hot pool and smaller deck size... More

We arrived to find Tim, warmly greeting us to this easy going resort. The room was comfortable enough to live in as an apartment. We were recommended cottages 9-12. Kathy was though most amazing host. Very accommodating. I give this Hotel 10 stars!!!

The Aura Soma lodge is a great place to stay. Clean, affordable, and the staff is the best. I will for sure stay there again. The rooms are fun. Different themes. I stayed at the Girlfriends get a way #7. It was great.

We have stayed at a few hotels at lava, this one is the best so far.. We will be booking there next year for sure.Only down fall was the shower sprayer in room one. It would have been nice to have it hung up high so if u want to take a shower u don't have to hold the sprayer

Have been here a few times. This last time I stayed in the conference facility with some other women for a retreat. It is a quiet and serene setting next to a river and with a nice hot mineral springs swimming pool that is relaxing and feels good. The conference facility is two stories with the downstairs having a living... More
