We stayed two nights and just loved the Snug Harbor Inn. Our room was small, but perfectly outfitted and even had two chairs and table in the bay windows area. The bed was supremely comfortable, the bathroom cute and very functional. The only way the smallness had an impact was in storing our things (and we just had too much... More

My husband and I just returned from a great weekend in Catalina. Snug Harbor was one of the highlights. The location right in the center of downtown Avalon cannot be beat. The breakfast delivered each morning was great and we loved the complimentary wine hour. The property is beautiful, room was large and spacious. Because you're in such a central... More

My husband and I had a memorable time at Snug Harbor Inn. We highly recommend! Very romantic setting, clean rooms with wonderful staffing. Easy to find and close walking distance from boat landing. It is located perfectly in middle of town and they made us feel right at home.

This past Sunday was my boyfriend's birthday. I decided to stay at this cozy and romantic hotel. I booked the birthday special and the Santa Cruz Room:] We arrived to the Island around 11 am, and were able to check in around 12:30. Our room was clean, lovely, so cozy and very romantic. It was a little bit pricy but... More

When we arrived the staff was kind and showed us to our room early. The room was lovely with soft music playing and a fire lit in the fireplace. The Snug Harbor Inn has thought of everything with happy hour wine and snacks, a beautiful breakfast, and a very discreet staff presence. The only problem we had was the street... More

My husband and I chose the San Nicolas room because we wanted a view of the ocean. Great choice, as it was romantic, quiet and we felt pampered. Delicious breakfast each morning, and the staff is willing to accommodate timewise. The Inn is very clean, and each day we looked forward to the complimentary cocktail hour, where free wine and...

My husband and I came to Catalina Island for a couple days after our wedding for a mini-honeymoon and stayed here the whole time. We were VERY pleased by Snug Harbor Inn! It was so clean, cozy, romantic, and the staff was amazing! When we first arrived to our ocean front room (San Nicolas room), there were fresh flowers, balloons,... More

Wow, the noise at this inn was beyond imaginable. My husband and I recently spent our 10 year anniversary at Snug Harbor based in large part on so many of the great review on Trip Advisor. Like most people who stayed there, I really wanted to sing the praises for this inn...but I just can't. As several recent reviews noted...... More

Tanya, Thank you for your comments both pros and cons. We try very hard to exceed the expectations of all guests and are disappointed when our guests have a problem. I apologize for the noise you experienced outside the hotel during your stay. It is wonderful to be located in the center of town on the beachfront but that is... More

My husband and I recently spent our anniversary at Snug Harbor Inn based upon the many positive reviews on Trip Advisor. I really wanted to love this place given the lack of good accommodations on Catalina; but given the noise and inability to have an uninterrupted restful sleep, I was greatly disappointed. Pros: -Chilled champagne, balloons and card in our... More
