This was our first trip to Catalina Island, (32nd anniversary) and we could not have been more pleased with our suite at Snug Harbor! The service was outstanding and went above what most people would expect. Everything was clean, and very comfortable. The wine & cheese hour was excellent and very nicely presented. We found the continental breakfasts were ample and very tasty.....and more than enough for us!............Thank you for even accomodating us on our early (6am) departure day too! Would stay again (and again, and again!)

We celebrated our 31st anniversary at this charming hotel we loved everything about it. We have stayed at other hotels and we wanted somewhere closer to the center of town. This is the place, Their complementary breakfast was great, some mornings we only opted for the delicious coffee and went out for pancakes. We will be back.

We just love this place! Have visited the island several time in the past 18 months and have found this to be the best! The rooms are wonderful--charming, comfortable, and each unique. Every room has a nice view and the fireplace is fabulous. One of the best amenities is that there are only 6 rooms and thus very quiet and private! The staff is very helpful and accommodating and we are always appreciative of the extra effort Alex makes to assist with our requests or needs. Morning breakfast is beautifully presented in a large basket and we thoroughly enjoy the fresh baked bread, granola, fruit, juice and yogurt. A perfect way to start the day. In the evening, the staff sets out wine and some lovely snacks to enjoy before strolling out for dinner. Our first stay there was only for 1 night but we've since decided that we enjoy our visits so much that we now book 2 or 3 nights whenever possible.

We have stayed in Catalinia for short getaways for over 20 years. I can't believe we've missed this hotel all these years. It's not just another room its a true Catalinia Island experience .Old fashion hospitality with all the up to date ammenities. This is a must stay for us now when we come to Avalon ! You'll love it !

Great getaway. Hotel is right on the main street, entrance on the side street. You're upstairs so we didn't feel there was much noise at all. (Note, there is not an elevator- might be a con for some). Also they provided ear plugs if you need them. We were in the Santa Barbara room and it was adorable. If you need a lot of space this is not the room for you. But there was only 2 of us with one bag each. It was perfect. Breakfast brought to your room every morning at a time you select. Brilliant. Food was superb and plentiful. And the bread is to die for!! Very cute and quaint. Great staff. We too arrived at 1 and our room was ready. Nice to be able to check in early after a long boat ride. The beach is just steps away and the hotel provides beach towels and chairs. You can come and go as you please. Your room key also gets you in the front door after hours, also a plus.
My only con was the blinds are great but still let lots of light in in the morning. No blackout curtains that I saw, but I didn't really look too hard either. Just got up and went for a stroll-no one out-very peaceful without the crowds, great time for photo's. Loved, loved, loved. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Santa Barbara room is close to the main street. You can see the boats and everyone walking below. Gr...

My husband and I spend two nights at the Snug Harbor Inn for a getaway. My husband had never been to Catalina and I hadn't been in many years. The Snug Harbor Inn is a very quaint 6 room Inn that is upstairs right down by the beach. There are a couple of rooms with a full view but we stayed in the room with a partial view. You could see the beach from one window by the table only. The room was right at the top of the stairs and directly across from the front desk so is not very private. The accomodations were great though, clean, comfortable bed and windows that open to the street below. Jacuzzi bathtub is big enough for one but I enjoyed it. The street below is very noisy until bars close at 2 a.m. Wine and snacks at 5:00 in the lounge were nice for me, but my husband drinks beer. Breakfast was wonderful and very healthy. It was brought to our room which was a nice touch. The stay is a bit pricey and I think next time we will find something a bit away from the beach and less expensive. Not too far though unless it includes a golf cart because they rent for $40 per hour.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the front desk and away from the lounge.
