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,...

The Aurora was a great hotel. It is located a block from the Main Street, but it is up quite a steep grade. It's not to bad, but when you're already tired, it can seem like it's a long way. They do have a nice wine and cheese on Friday night for guests. The people were very friendly.

My wife, 2 girls and our in-laws spent a couple of days here before the 4th of July holiday and had a really great stay. I found the hotel on Trip Advisor (as always) and definitely wasn't let down. In fact, it was even better than expected. The staff were friendly from the very first phone call to make the...

I never write reviews but just had to for this hotel. My husband and I booked a weekend stay for our 2nd anniversary. Upon our late arrival we were kindly greeted by the staff. They gave us directions to a nearby restaurant and called ahead for us to make sure they reserved a table. Even the maids were friendly and...

Great anniversary stay! The hotel is very clean and the service is 1st Class. We enjoyed the Friday evening wine & cheese plus the morning breakfast. Only a block from the beach and perfect location.
