This hotel is right on El Camino, but set far back enough from the street that it was quiet. Impeccably clean, with some nice personal touches such as cookies at check-in. Our room was enormous: a two-room suite with a kitchenette, a king size bed, and a pullout sleeper sofa. The bed was super-comfy! I wish the toiletries were higher-grade,... More

This was a very clean, spacious room with free wi fi, breakfast, refrigerator, microwave, iron, (toiletries could be better) but ok for the price. The prices change day to day probably due to capacity. They have a nice sized outdoor pool and jacuzzi (which is unusual). I would have given it a 4 star if they cleaned the carpet in... More

Yes, the hotel is "basic"...but the location is great and it was super quiet for a Saturday night! Angela at the front desk was extremely welcoming and professional. The room was a bit small, and the TV is small...but Hotel Aria more than does the job. The hot breakfast included eggs, sausage, hashbrown potato, toast, bagels, oatmeal, cold cereals, juice,...

This hotel clearly hasn't had a facelift in a decade or more. The place was just barely acceptable for a business trip. I was also really disappointed because there was no room service or on-site restaurant.

I'd give this less than two but there weren't any bugs or anything. This is a low budget hotel, which is fine with me, but it is a bit extreme. They were full the weekend we stayed, so they didn't clean our room, make the beds, take out the trash or anything. I asked for a discount at checkout given... More

The Hotel Aria is located in a great location, close to a shopping plaza, very convenient. The staff was friendly and professional. My room was very nice, clean, and quiet.

Got a great deal on a double room for 2 nights, Sat and Sunday thru Trip Advisor. The staff was very helpful and the room was clean. The breakfast was well stocked with a variety of choices. The location of the hotel was centrally located and offered numerous dinning options. We hope to enjoy a return visit.

Staff was extremely friendly, especially Tony at the front desk. I have stayed here several times. Tony not only recognized me when I checked in, but noting that I had been there before, he upgraded me to a junior suite. It was a really kind and unexpected thing.
