“Quick Overnight”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

We were road travelers just looking for a stopover on a long road trip. Nice that the Aqua Soliel is a bit of an oasis in an otherwise corner of hell, and all the rooms and walkways face in, toward the palms, pool and hot tubs. Staff were pleasant, attentive, and helpful, but the business seems to be in a state of transition, with the newly remodeled rooms still in process. Sure, we had a new, but undersized flat screen, but the old TV armoir was still there, out of place, converted to a closet of sorts, and shoved into a corner. We had a light that wouldn't shut off, were short on personal amenities (TWO cups, but only coffee for one!), a shower, but no tub, and I couldn't stand the noisy air conditioning unit which woke me up every time it cycled on all night long, although the bed was comfortable. The bar and restaurant are practically non-existent, but we did strike it rich by buying several pulled pork and chicken sandwiches off the Happy Hour menu, which we had delivered to the room while we caught the Forty-Niner game. The pork, particularly, was execptional. Speaking of TV, the channel selection is HORRIBLE...some 10 channels only, and extremely poor variety. I never understand why all news networks are not represented at hotels. No CNN, no MSNBC, only HN and Fox, which isn't even a news network. The message seems to be: "If you are an open-minded progressive thinker, we don't want you to stay here." This is a hotel trying to be finished, and isn't, but has some sweet touches, like the fruit-infused ice water in every floor lobby, and the pool open 24-hours. I'm sure they'll continue to improve, as it seems that they care.

Outside could us some work, since the rooms have been updated. Not sure why they call it Mineral Water Spa, since all we smelled was Clorine. Was annoyed when I got into bed at 9pm and my side of the bed, mattress was wet!! They put us in another room, got into bed again 9:30pm turned on TV and had no signal, security came up, said it was a bad cable box and off to ANOTHER room we went. That room was ok, except for the huge crack on the ceiling, but we stayed. Got 2 free 15 min. Jade massages, the beds made A LOT of noise and was not comfortable at all. Got 2 free drinks at the bar which was nice, the bartender was nice. Probably won't revisit, only went because Groupon had a good deal. We did get 2 25% off for a massage, but they were expensive even after the 25% off.

This place wasn't horrible however it wasn't what I was expecting . The pictures make the rooms look nice clean and fresh, I was under the impression that it had a spa feel to it having the name mineral water spa. When I first walked in it smelled a lot like cigarettes. It didn't bother me too much after all it's just the lobby but I was expecting a nice fresh smell with relaxing music. Girl in the reception desk wasn't as friendly as she could've been but she wasn't unprofessional so she was just okay. The room reeked of cigeratte smell! Like unbearable I had to go buy air fresher . The room was tiny but it looked like it had just been remodeled so wasn't too bad . Pool area wasn't too shabby the "spa" was overpriced and it was just a regular room with a sign that said spa outside It definitely doesn't look inviting. I didnt feel comfortbale getting a service plus it was so overpriced and the spa ambiance just wasn't present! We checked out early because we just felt like we were at a motel and couldnt take the smokey smell inside the room. Front desk girl asked why we were checking out early and we said we just wanted to leave she didnt bother to offer any solutions. Overall the experience was very mediocre. Not bad but not memorable wouldn't stay here or recommend this to any friends unless they had to make a pit stop its better than a motel !

It was our first time there, it was comfortable as far as the sleeping and the area it was located. The rooms were updated and clean, staff was nice and the atmosphere was good...I would go back sometime again!

Good value for the price we paid. Also very friendly staff. Hotel seems to be recently updated, but still smells like "old" throughout the property. Some of my bathroom towels had stains on them, but the bed was so comfy, I disregarded it. And the Saturday movie by the pool was Great Gatsby, major plus!!!

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view facing the mountains for an incredible sunset.

I enjoyed the room and shower and mineral pool very much. It was updated but still had a calm vibe to it. The staff needs to do a better job cleaning though. Too much dust and cobwebs for me. Plus, not many tv channels. Pool in room was room temp. Would have been nice for it to be warm. Overall, i enjoyed my stay and would return.

The place was ok but nothing special. My card was charged 3 separate charges which still hasn't been refunded. Front desk was awkward. It just didn't feel special in anyway. Felt to me like any regular hotel.
