We stayed at the Aurora Hotel last weekend for our 25th anniversary. Although our room did not have a view (which we knew going in) it was very comfortable. We loved the roof top deck and spent quite a bit of time up there eating breakfast and relaxing in the evening before going out to dinner. The walk up the...

Cozy, updated hotel with wonderful staff. Rooms are small but very well equipped with amenities including locally made salt water taffy every day. Basic continental breakfast included. Load up your tray and take it upstairs to the roof top deck and enjoy the beautiful view. Some rooms have a view, others (ours did not) look at the building next door...

We stayed one night on Avalon for our Honeymoon. We really liked that the Aurora wasn't too far uphill and that it was very close to all the shops and restaurants. The room had everything we needed and was very clean and modern. We stayed in the standard room, so the shower was a little cramped - hard to shave...

We stayed at the Aurora for a business trip. Because we are a large group, we rented the whole place out. From the beginning of the planning to the end of our stay, I felt super supported by the staff (who were so friendly and lovely). Wine and cheese on the rooftop deck that they provided was wonderful--the view from...

We had a B&B gift certificate so we took a 2 day/1 night mid-week trip to Avalon. The Aurora was just the perfect spot. It has a terrific roof top patio great for night until 10 and our room , though tiny was clean and had a great harbor view. It was a bit of a steep hike up to...

We were very pleased with our room at the Aurora! While it is small, it has everything you need. Tempurpedic mattress, Keurig coffee maker, frig with complementary water, safe, and bath amenities. It also has excellent lighting - (so many times there are not enough lamps for reading). We had a room on the second floor, corner, which had a...

I was very pleased with this hotel, the property was a little off the beaten path and private. Our room was on the small side, but very efficiently designed, modern, well appointed and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful and we are definately coming back this year.

Upon arrival, I was upgraded to a suite! It was on the second floor and had a nice view of the bay. The room was modern and clean, had a comfortable bed and had a wonderful jacuzzi tub. The Aurora is located up a little side street from the main drag so you can enjoy the peace and quiet from...

Stayed here for a weekend in August, and expected a bit more for $329/night. I was in a standard room with a partial ocean view. The room was tiny, the carpet stained, mold was growing on the bottom of the drapes, and the bathroom is uncomfortably small. Overall the staff was extremely friendly, the roof deck is a fantastic amenity,...
