New York Hotel Options

Fall weekends in the Finger Lakes region tend to be busy tourist times, so we recommend booking your room as far in advance as possible. The Wells College website has a list of recommended lodging options in Aurora and surrounding communities.


In addition to lodgings in Aurora itself, hotels and inns are also available in Auburn (about a 20-minute drive away), Seneca Falls (about a 30-minute drive) and Ithaca (about 40 minutes away).
