Wrightwood, California
Reviewed 22 July 2015

Aurora hotel was very comfortable. We rented a room with ocean view (beutiful view). Loved the roof deck. The continental breakfast was delicious (muffins, beggels, croissants, cream cheese, jam, oatmeal, yogurt, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, orange juice, milk, cereal, fruit). The hotel is about a block from the beach (a little walk up hill but nothing we could not handle)....

The hotel is very nicely furnished and kept very clean, and our room 213, had a small balcony with an ocean view. However, the room was so small that we might as well have been in Tokyo! My husband and I could not walk around the bed at the same time and the bathroom had no countertop and the smallest...

I'm sorry to hear that we did not exceed your expectations. Although most of our guests are impressed with our efficient use of space, because we are on an island our rooms are smaller than some may expect. At our next staff meeting, I will bring up your concerns about breakfast and shade on the roof-deck. I hope that you...

Needs a shuttle as it is located up a steep hill. Otherwise enjoyed our stay. They kept our luggage until the room was ready and after we checked out until we were ready to leave. Very nice staff. Enjoyed the roof top patio.

We really enjoyed our stay for the following reasons: 1) Friendly, attentive staff 2) well appointed rooms (comfy robes, cool A/C, etc), 3) simple, yet satisfying continental breakfast (hard boiled eggs, croissants, bagels, English muffins, fruit, yogurt, cereal, coffee), 4) high quality massage services, 5) great...

Richard was great. He was kind, helpful and gave us some good tips. They have a beautiful rooftop where you can enjoy the view with a glass of wine or enjoy your continental breakfast. Rooms are nice inside & well kept. Staff is friendly. Another tip for dinner right down the street..Ristorante portafino is the best dinner spot.

Had a wonderful 2-night stay here. Rooftop deck/lounge area was the highlight. Richard, our proprietor, was very helpful and informative. We'd stay here again, for sure. It's a cute little town, and we can think of lots more things we'd do on a return visit.
