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.

Catalina Island's Avalon is a very small place, super European in size. 80% of the vehicles are some sort of golf cart and the streets are tiny, and mostly steep. Also, we came in the off-season, which I highly recommend. We should have called when we arrived, because we made the long journey (.7 miles) to the tiny side door...

I made a reservation after reviewing the reviews on Trip Advisor. I attended the jazz festival. The Aurora sits on a hill so you will get a good work out. Richard and Ramiro were Very Helpful. The room was small, modern and clean. the only thing that was missing was a tub. The room had everything you could need. There...

This is the best hotel for price in all of avalon. The staff are friendlier than most hotels anywhere. The rooms are small but perfect size for a couple or a single traveller. Continental breakfast was above and beyond most at any other hotel and the true gem of this hotel is the rooftop patio which overlooks the city/bay. This...

This was my first trip to Catalina and I loved every minute of it! The hotel Aurora is located on a steep little hill, so yes if you have trouble walking it may not be the best choice, if however, you are able, this little hill is not going to phase you! Once at the hotel we found the staff...

We went to Catalina Midweek in the middle of August. We usually sail over for a week or two and just could not get away for that much time this year. We hopped a quick ferry from Dana Point (included with the package from the hotel), Hopped into a waiting taxi at the dock (also included in the package), and...

First of hotel personnel are very nice and helpful. This hotel is located at the top of a very steep hill so if you have trouble walking this is not your best choice to stay. Secondly like most hotels on CataIina Island no elevators so you will be climbing stairs. The rooms are very small and the bathroom tiny. I...
