Aurora Hotel was great. Great staff. Nice view of the coast from our balcony and fabulous view from the roof deck; wine and cheese on Friday nights. Breakfast was awesome. The room was clean and comfortable. A great walk to the main street stroll, shops, cafe and restaurants. We will recommend Aurora Hotel to our friends and family. We will...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for her birthday and we're very pleased with the hotel. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. This hotel is an older building that has been completely renovated and updated. Our only complaint is the room (#311), we booked said it had an ocean view, but part of that view was obstructed by an...

We stayed three nights in room 311 it was a partial ocean view on the third floor, but it was a wonderful view of the harbor. Yes the rooms are small but laid out well. They have put everything you need in this room. The bed was amazing, we slept like babies. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would...

My wife and I decided to take a trip to Catalina for Valentines Day and we completely enjoyed our stay! We opted for a full-ocean view suite with the small balcony. I wouldn't have gone for it after staying in it just because the roof top deck is much bigger and has a better view. The extended continental breakfast was...

Stayed one night at this hotel and enjoyed the experience. Staff were very friendly and most cooperative (we wanted to sit on the rood deck earlier than it usually opened and they readily helped us). The entire hotel is very clean and modern in both furniture and decor. Bed was very comfortable and we had an excellent sleep. The breakfast...

It was so much fun going to Catalina. All the hotels are on hills and they all lead to the water. Our hotel was small but beautiful. We had a room with a view but it was really small. We rented a golf cart and drove around the island. We saw some of the most beautiful places. We ate lunch...

The hospitality here is the best I've experienced in a long time. The regular rooms are quite small, especially the bathroom, but you're rarely in your room on this island. There's a microwave, fridge and Keurig, which is a huge score. Great comped continental breakfast with eggs and all. I would get a room with a balcony next time but...

Wonderful hotel. We stayed in the Celebrity Suite. Large room, nice views, stylish decor. With the package we received $100 in vouchers good for dining, shopping, or attractions. We also had a couples massage (meh...), bottle of bubbly, and bouquet of fresh flowers & candy awaiting our arrival. The hotel staff was friendly, and helpful. The room is very private....

We came here on our anniversary. The manager gave us an upgrade room without our knowledge. The view was just beautiful from our balcony. The staff was extremely friendly and helped us guide some of the must things to do around town. Highly recommend it!
