Hotels and restaurants that pass inspection are designated as AAA Inspected & Approved. This indicates they offer clean, comfortable, hospitable places for members to stay and dine – whether they’re motels, diners or resorts.

The five AAA Diamond levels describe the kind of experience members can expect. They identify which AAA Inspected & Approved hotels and restaurants will provide the best fit for your occasion and budget. Think of each additional Diamond as an indicator of more extensive services and amenities – on a scale from no-frills to highly personalized.

  • One Diamond means a bed, a pillow and a bargain.
  • Two Diamonds mean a familiar, casual, affordable setting.
  • Three Diamonds deliver the comforts of home, minus the effort.
  • Four Diamonds provide a notable splurge for a special occasion.
  • And Five Diamonds are the crown jewel.

Here’s the most recently added hotels to AAA’s ultra-luxury Five Diamond list.
