We recently stayed at Aurora Hotel and, while our room was indeed small, it was very clean and modern and perfect for just my husband and I. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful form the get go. They also offered hotel guests complimentary wine and cheese on the deck, which has a beautiful view I might add, and...

We stayed 2 nights to celebrate our 25 th wedding anniversary. We had never been to Catalina before and loved it. The Aurora was very nice, loved the modern decor. The beds were very comfortable and even tho the rooms are small, it was perfect for us. The outdoor deck was wonderful to have a drink and watch the sunset...

Just returned from a 3 night stay at the lovely Aurora Hotel. This stylish modern boutique hotel won us over from the start. Richard and Diana were wonderful to work with on booking - and since we booked two weeks out from our trip, finding accommodations was not easy as the town was quite booked up this time of year....

Wonderful and most comfortable! My husband and I stayed at Aurora Hotel for two nights just this past weekend. The staff is amazing and caring.

I admit, we did splurge and get one of the mini-suites and what a first impression it made! The room is just incredible with a fantastic view of the harbor as well! I guess we all expect flat screen TVs by now, so that was no surprise. The room is pretty big and decorated nicely! Etched glass separating the room...

Great romantic little hotel off the main road, showers/overall space are small in the standard suite but you don't really need a lot of room anyway.
