Our second stay at the Arena Hotel on The Alameda close to the HP Pavilion. A nice hotel with clean rooms and remarkably low prices.

Room Tip: Ask for a room NOT on The Alameda - as it can be a bit noisy.

Close to the airport, clean, with a free breakfast, it saved us when our flight was cancelled.

Stayed Feb 28, 2012 for a Sharks/Flyers game. As others have pointed out, great location if you are going to the HP Pavilion. Maybe 10 minute walk to the arena. This is an easy, safe walk. A few blocks past the HP Pavilion you will find several restaurants and bars. The room was very clean. I checked closely for bed bugs - no sign of any under both mattresses. Bathroom was also very clean. I had very little interaction with the staff, but when I did they were friendly. If you are looking for a basic, clean room to attend an event at the HP Pavilion, I would highly recommend. If you want a more cushy experience then you may need to fork out some more $ and check out more expensive options in the area.

I was a bit concerned about staying here after reading some other reviews. I honestly have no idea what they were talking about. Parking was no problem, the hotel looked great and the room was luxurious and clean. We stayed here simply because of the location to the HP Pavilion to see a Senators vs Sharks game. Lots of fans here...it's worth it. A pre-game snack is served in the lobby and you are literally steps from the arena. People walk further from where they park for the game. Continental breakfast was very impressive. Great selection of coffee/juices and most hot and cold breakfast foods.

We stayed at the Arena Hotel for a week while attending figure skating competitions at HP Pavilion. It was very easy walking the 2-3 blocks to the Pavilion, and the hotel had all the amenities for a pleasant stay--comfortable beds, clean rooms, microwave ovens, refrigerators, complimentary breakfast--all for a reasonable price.

While this is not the fault of the hotel, the surrounding area could use some rehab. There were empty stores and lots, and the streets could have used a good cleaning. With the exception of an upscale sushi place, there were few restaurants available unless one was willing to walk at least two blocks to find them.
