Richard was great. He was kind, helpful and gave us some good tips. They have a beautiful rooftop where you can enjoy the view with a glass of wine or enjoy your continental breakfast. Rooms are nice inside & well kept. Staff is friendly. Another tip for dinner right down the street..Ristorante portafino is the best dinner spot.

My husband and I will definitely be back to the Aurora for our next Catalina trip. It took me a long time to search for the right hotel, and I used trip advisor to view and decide on the Aurora.

Had a wonderful 2-night stay here. Rooftop deck/lounge area was the highlight. Richard, our proprietor, was very helpful and informative. We'd stay here again, for sure. It's a cute little town, and we can think of lots more things we'd do on a return visit.

Spent last weekend while attending Silent Fim benefit. The hotel is a lovely boutique hotel that had been upgraded from a previous hotel. Rooms are not large but large enough and well appointed since we had one of the smaller rooms facing the hillside. Sunny room with windows in the room and bathroom.

We stayed at the Aurora Hotel last weekend for our 25th anniversary. Although our room did not have a view (which we knew going in) it was very comfortable. We loved the roof top deck and spent quite a bit of time up there eating breakfast and relaxing in the evening before going out to dinner. The walk up the...

Cozy, updated hotel with wonderful staff. Rooms are small but very well equipped with amenities including locally made salt water taffy every day. Basic continental breakfast included.

We stayed one night on Avalon for our Honeymoon. We really liked that the Aurora wasn't too far uphill and that it was very close to all the shops and restaurants. The room had everything we needed and was very clean and modern. We stayed in the standard room, so the shower was a little cramped - hard to shave...

We stayed at the Aurora for a business trip. Because we are a large group, we rented the whole place out. From the beginning of the planning to the end of our stay, I felt super supported by the staff (who were so friendly and lovely).
