Short version: The stay was amazing and we will definitely visit the same place over and over again ! One of the best hotels ever visited. Long version: Me and my wife visited Catalina Island and chose to stay at the Aurora Hotel. Due to our short visit, we stayed there for 2 days & 1 night. While we reached...

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel about a week ago and fell in love with it. The location is great and so is the view from the rooftop terrace. The rooms were cute and modern. We had a "room with no view" but there was still a view of the hills and condos behind the hotel. The Saturday...

This is a very nice hotel with ocean views in a few of the rooms, plus a fabulous rooftop deck. They have Tempurpedic beds; I would have given a 5, but I am not a fan of these beds, but if you are, you will surely enjoy sleeping here. The rooms are a little small, but since you don't spend...

We stayed here in room 313 for a couple of nights. The welcome was good and the staff great. The room was small, but had a lovely balcony with a super view. The bathroom, however, was minute! If you are a larger person, you might struggle. It's just a shower room with a tiny sink and a toilet. Nowhere to...

We just stayed at the Aurora for 3 nights and we loved it. Our room was a partial bay view, #211. The room is very small but the way the room is designed is perfect for the size. We loved the location, it is a pretty steep hill to walk up to get to it, but we were happy that...

We had a great time at the Aurora. Their staff, especially Richard, went out of their way to assist us. The corner room we had does have a good view of the Bay and the rooftop patio area gives you a view of the entire area.
