We spent two nights here doing a 30th anniversary celebration. We booked a package deal that included the Catalina Express tickets, a garden room (203? 205?) and the couples massage for $650 total. Laurie was the main innkeeper and very helpful with questions we had. Breakfast in the courtyard was fun by the fire pit. Boiled eggs was a nice treat beyond the basic self-serve items. We made a couple trips to the rooftop terrace. Room was good size but I missed having an easy chair; that's the only negative comment about the quaint hotel. They have a unique tangerine line of lotions and soaps that smell great. The couples massage at the Aurora Hotel (by Lavina and Sarah) was fantastic, especially because we'd done the Zipline earlier that day. Location was fine, easy to get to everything in Avalon. We rented electric scooters from the Sea-doo shop, $15 per hours and they were great. Everyone with a bike had to push up hills, but not us. Plan on two hours and just explore up in the hills. We had a fabulous three days/two nights on Catalina Island. The quiet hotel helped make it peaceful.
