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...

We had 18 people at Avalon for a small business retreat. It was the perfect location and an awesome hotel. The whole staff was very welcoming by and accommodating. Hats off to Ramiro, Paul and Haleigh for their help. They made arrangements for boats, helicopters and dinner and made us all feel welcomed. Would highly recommend this hotel. The beds...

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!

My significant other and I were staying at Aurora Hotel after camping in Two Harbors and had to call on short notice due to a storm to ask for an extra 2 nights. Not only were the staff accommodating in finding us a room but upgraded us to the full ocean view suite without any charge. The room offered a...

Stayed there in Oct. for just 1 night, but the staff and accommodations were great. I highly recommend this place, I use to be a hotel manager for 4 years and I couldn't find anything to complain about.

We stayed here while attending the Smooth Jazz Festival. This is a very nice hotel. Staff were very friendly and everything was clean. Although the rooms are small, they are set up in a very efficient manner. However, the bathroom is just too small for me. If I return I am going to get a suite. Also, the walls are...
