“Like a very nice bed and breakfast”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

This inn is above Leo's Drugstore and has 6 rooms, which are small, but have everything one needs, including a gas fireplace. There was a large flat screen TV above the fireplace.They provide slippers, bathrobes, ear plugs, sleeping masks, white noise machine, 4 pm - 5 pm (or 5 pm - 6pm) wine and h'orderves in their small, but comfortable common lounge. When you check-in, you are given a form to fill out for breakfast; you choose your coffee (reg or decaf), your juice (orange or V-8), and the time you want it served, from 8:30 am on, in 15-minute time slots, till 10 am. The breakfast comes in a large wicker basket and you can eat it on the table in your room. The breakfast had, in addition to coffee and juice, has yogurt, granola, a small loaf of fresh bread on a cutting board.The Santa Cruz room where we stayed overlooks the street (not the bay). If you come early (before check-in time) or leave late (after check-out time), they will store your luggage in a nicely organized hall closet. They will even help you up, and down, the stairs with your luggage. We came in December 2013 before Xmas and took advantage of the combined ferry and room price, which is better than purchasing room and ferry trip separately. The small lounge has cups and a hot water tap, so you can make tea at anytime. You can regulate the temperature in your room with an in-room wall thermostat.

Room Tip: If you want the bay view, you need to get one of the rooms facing the bay, which cost a bit more.

We spend Christmas in Catalina at the Snug Harbor Inn. The rooms were beautiful and cozy. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They provided us with wine every night at 5pm, coffee and tea in the morning and a free continental breakfast!

We will definitely be back on our next trip!

Stayed during the quiet season, December 2013. Had the Santa Catalina room, which is the best room of the hotel. It overlooks the harbor and also Sumner Ave. Very clean, comfortable, the morning breakfast served in the room was wonderful. Great staff. My wife and I plan to come back every year.

Room Tip: Take either the Santa Catalina room or the San Nicolas room. These two rooms have the best harbor vi...

Just so glad we read the reviews from Tripadvisor and other sites and decided to stay at the Snug Harbor Inn. We stayed 3 nights and from start to finish we could not have been happier. Our room, San Nicolas, had a wonderful view, great bed and large bathroom. The staff was so helpful and nice, breakfast was perfect...served in our room at a table overlooking the harbor and it was so close to everything. We would stay here again in an instant......

Room Tip: The San Nicolas is the second largest room with a direct harbor view and has blue and white colors...

It was only our 2nd trip to Catalina & my husband wanted to come back specifically to stay here. No disapointments! Staff was wonderful, perfect location, breakfast delivered with "to die for" sweet loaf cakes every am, MORE than adequate evening hors d'oeuvres, high end toiletries, cute slippers & a cozy fireplace. Now I just have to figure how to get hold of those great black washcloths that say "makeup". But Juan the mgr said he'd help me, yippee!

Room Tip: There's only 6, they all look great in the pictures... we loved Anacapa.
