Great Experience

4.0 on May 07, 2014

My Wife and I had a mini vacation and stayed at the Aurora Resort. We enjoyed our stay. Was a lovely place, will definitely stay again.


Relaxing spot

4.2 on April 18, 2014

Rooms were small but didn't go to Catalina to sit in my room. Rooftop deck was beautiful with plenty of lounging space and a wonderful view of the harbor. Continental breakfast was very good. Service was great. Short hilly walk to everything, will definitely be returning.

We had a wonderful stay at this nice little hotel. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Great view from roof top terrace.


Quiet, modern, welcoming

I did a lot of research on rooms before we booked this room. We had to use a Groupon for the Flyer and with 2 weeks to go before the expiration, so a Thanksgiving getaway it was. We decided a fun tub, good-sized room and comfy bed were a must and we liked the modern, boutique feel of this place. We bypassed the standard room for the junior suite with the jetted tub, we wanted to enjoy our room. If I was coming for the touristy stuff, the standard room/small bathroom would work, but it's really small, because the space here is a commodity! The shampoo/conditioner/body wash were Rusk, so I didn't even have to unpack my own. They also had a steamer in each room if things get wrinkly on the way here. The room was updated, but like everything else here, has some age, which is fine, it adds character. We had a king temperpedic with a giant tub (for one, just sorta big for two, hehe) and a sectional sofa with large flatscreen, dvd player, cocktail bar set, fridge, microwave and a Kuerig. Harbor view was okay, I could stand on the bed and see the ocean (I'm short). It did say partial-view, so that's fair. Just up the stairs was a fantastic rooftop area overlooking the harbor that was completely vacant. Hubs and I enjoyed the 65 degree day with a couple of bottles of their dry procecco (only $20) and some sun soaked naps. And since the hotel doesn't encourage children, they seem very interested in you enjoying yourself (responsibly and not to the detriment of others) with some booze. I cannot say enough good things about the people at this hotel. Everyone we encountered was as helpful as anyone could ever be, it felt like they were actually hosting us, rather than we were paying to be there. We'd be happy to stay there again.


Wonderful place

Perfect hotel to stay

The hotel is clean and had good view to the harbor, and the front desk friendly introduced the best activities and site to visit on the island.


What a great Hotel

My wife and I stayed at the Aurora early August, 2010. I don't know how to find anything that were not totally perfect. Thanks to the Staff at the Aurora. Castro Valley resident


The place to stay in Avalon

4.8 on June 13, 2010

My girlfriend and I went to Catalina for the first time recently and stayed here and absolutely loved it! The whole place has recently been redone and done very well. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The roof deck is awesome! We ate breakfast (great continental - included) there every morning and cocktails every evening. We were surprised that we generally had it to ourselves (the word is out now). If we were forced to provide a critique, it would be that the The only criticism we had is that the rooms are small but they do a great job of supplying space saving ideas - hooks, drawers, shelves, etc. But how much time are you going to spend in the room anyway - there is an awesome roof deck and you are in Catalina! There may be other places to stay on Catalina, but we can not imagine a better place than Aurora - and it is less expensive than many. Bill - San Diego
