COVID-19 Safety Announcement - Mask Requirement - Click for Our Current Policies for 2021

June 2021 – Safety is our first priority.  We aim to protect our employees and guests, so we ask if you have an existing reservation and you are feeling sick or have symptoms of COVID19, please reschedule or cancel.  We continue to have high standards of service and health protocols.  We have increased cleaning and sanitizing protocols, etc.  Because of this, we cannot allow an early check-in. Please respect our check-in hours.

If anyone is ill or becomes ill at the Inn, we will ask you to leave immediately.  For your safety as well as ours and other guests, the use of masks are now required while staying at Aurora Staples Inn. Please remember to bring one with you. 

Breakfast: Let us pamper you by delivering you a delicious breakfast to your luxurious suites or rooms, to adhere to social distancing.  We believe this will still allow you to have an authentic experience at our Inn.  Also, please note that we do not have TVs in our rooms.

Because we are a small Inn in a small town, with a handful of rooms, we must limit the number of guests per room to two.  Wedding parties and receptions are currently on hold.

We hope to see you soon!

– Rachelle, Innkeeper/Owner
