We absolutely loved our stay at The Snug Inn. We stayed in San Nicholas with the ocean front view. It was amazing! The staff at the inn was so friendly and accommodating. Every day around 4:30pm wine and a small charcuterie board were delivered to our room. Each morning a lovely breakfast was delivered at a time of our choosing. The location of the inn was perfect! We were right in the main Avalon beach area and could walk to anything we needed. We would absolutely stay here again.

My husband and I just spent 3 days and nights at Snug Harbor Inn and this is just the best. Juan and Cole and everyone who works there are so nice and the service is just beyond perfect. From the breakfast with the best coffee and sweet bread and then the afternoon wine and cheese tray this hotel has it all. The location is great, right in the middle of everything, but still very quiet for a great night sleep and truly we felt very safe and snug in the Santa Catalina room. This hotel is so worth the cost, it so well appointed and just perfect for a get away to be able to relax and renew. Only issue we had was the internet is slow, so don't plan to do any streaming, but just check out the view and you quickly get over not being able to watch a TV show by streaming. Sorry we had to leave, one of our best trips in a long while. You need to check this hotel out. Thanks to all the staff for making this a great time.

Not only was this GEM one of the amazing destinations, but the hotel service was exquisite. We felt like family while being here and can’t wait to come back. I already recommended this place to all of my friends :)

We very much enjoyed our stay at Snug Harbor Inn. The accommodations are clean and cozy. All of the staff are friendly and accommodating. Snug Harbor is in the middle of activities on the Avalon beach. That is a good thing for enjoying the many things that Avalon has to offer, but the complimentary ear plugs are recommended for light sleepers. We enjoyed being close to so many activities, including the beach. Breakfast of yogurt/fruit/granola/fresh baked bread/coffee/juice is served to your room. Also lovely cheese/salami/crackers/grapes & glass of wine is delivered to your room late afternoon. So delightful! We liked this hotel for our stay!! Lovely place to stay!

Juan and Amy were amazing! In the middle of everything!! This boutique hotel has only 6 rooms that sell out quickly. We stayed in the San Nicolas room (1 of 2 rooms with oceanfront view). 2 rooms have oceanfront views while the other 4 have partial ocean and mountain views. Right on the main strip - very convenient to everything. No elevator, but Juan assisted with our luggage up the 2 flights of stairs. The birthday setup was beautiful! Every evening they bring you wine and charcuterie! In the morning, you are delivered a basket with breakfast. So cute! BUT....that fresh baked banana nut bread was the best I've ever had!! YUM! Complimentary slippers, eye mask and ear plugs (which were not needed). Fireplace in the room which came in handy as the nights were pretty cool. The view speaks for itself and you can sit and people watch from the room window. Only a couple of blocks from Von's (the only grocery store on the island, but if you want liquor this is the place to get it....CHEAP!!!!) #SnugHarborInn #Catalina #CatalinaIsland #CA #visitcalifornia #visitca #travelagent #travelblogger #travel #TravelTuesday #Cali #Avalon #Views #Vacation #tours #celebration #specialoccasion #California #beach #sunset #sunrise
