"Nice Rooms & Hot Tubs!"
Overall score4.0/ 5
The Arena Hotel is conveniently located and has nice rooms with hot tubs which is the main reason I stay there. I appreciate the clean rooms and staff and upgrades to rooms. The prices are good and I am a senior and enjoy getting away to a clean, safe hotel.

"Sadly Disappointing"
Overall score2.0/ 5
Me and my friend stayed here for one night and it was very disappointing from start to finish. We went to a concert we stayed one night it was really close to the SAP center which was very nice. On my reservation notice it told us that check in was at three PM the staff there was very rude and helpful we had to wait until four PM which was an hour and a half wait concert started at 7:30 didn't really give us enough time to get ready. The rooms are poorly kept and you can hear the people upstairs walking around in the people in the hallway walking around and talking loud. If we have been welcome a little bit more nicer we would've had a better time but I would not stay there again.

"Disappointed"
Overall score3.0/ 5
I didn't like that people were hanging out and sleeping in the hallways of our 3rd floor and outside the front was dirty with trash and clothes laying around.

"Below expectations. Front Desk attitude."
Overall score2.0/ 5
Nice room and spa. Nice friendly checkin. But such a sensitive smoke alarm where the steam from using the jacuzzi sets off the alarm and would not stop for 45 mins. Even maintenance agreed that this is an everday issue. Then they charge me 60 dollars for wrapping a towel around the smoke alarm as it was so loud for so long. No damage at all yet they dont apologize and just help themselves to my credit card.

"It was good."
Overall score3.0/ 5
My Fiance came to visit me so I got her a room for the night. It was nice and clean, a little pricey. It would be nice if they had better cable channels. Other then that it was great and the staff are friendly.

Testimonials:

Testimonials icon
"I found your site very easy to use, and useful, and your staff helpful but not at all pushy. (I tried using another site that resulted in "sales" calls and won't use that site again. Conference planning is hectic/nutty enough without someone calling everyday to bug you! :-) Not only would I use you, but recommend you highly." L.F. - Berkeley, CA
