We visited Catalina Island the weekend of January 10-11th and stayed two nights in the San Nicolas room. Snug Harbor is a very nice Bed and Breakfast with easy access to the Avalon waterfront pedestrian walkway. The reservation and registration process was excellent and Ruth took care of our local restaurant reservations. We enjoyed the morning breakfast in our room... More

We learned that snug harbor stood for a safe, warm and cozy place to live ashore for returning sailors. This Inn provided all of that in spades. Overlooking the waterfront and marina along the main walkway, we found ourselves enjoying a glass of wine by the in room fireplace looking out over beautiful Avalon, the ocean and the Casino. The...

Staying at the Snug Harbor Inn was a great experience and the comfort level far exceeded our expectations. The Staff was genuinely caring and always available to help with any questions or otherwise during our stay on Catalina Island.

This hotel was amazing!! Definitely the nicest hotel we have ever stayed at. Breakfast is served every morning at your specified time. Complimentary coffee and tazo tea is available any time. The room is quiet--hotel is recommended for couples.

Extremely welcoming staff. Arrived early and given freshly brewed coffee and allowed into our immaculate room (Santa Cruz) with fresh flowers and fireplace lit. Our room was on a side street but able to see the ocean, great location downtown next to restaurants and shops. Walking distance to tours, the museum, the casino. Wine and great variety of hord'oeuvres served... More

If you do, this is the place to go! In the evening they serve a lovely array of appetizers and beverages from 5-6. While you are out to dinner they turn your bed sheets down and give you a little chocolate surprise. In the morning you are served an in room continental breakfast that is very tasty and they'll set... More

This was our first time going to Catalina Island, a small hidden gem off the coast of California. We first heard of the island through friends of ours many years ago and finally decided to take a trip there. When we first planned this trip for our anniversary we tried to make reservations at the Inn on Mt. Ada as... More

We loved our time here. Our room had a wonderful view of the water and the location made it easy to walk everywhere. We looked forward to the delicious breakfast brought to our room each morning. At each afternoon's wine/appetizer gathering we enjoyed meeting and visiting with other guests. Everyone at the front guest was so gracious and helpful. We... More

I had an awesome stay at this hotel. Our room was clean, comfortable and smelled very good. My wife and I had a blast. The service was beyond great and I have to say our room was beyond our expectations. I will definitely use this hotel again on my next stay in Catallina.
