“Best accommodations in Avalon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014 via mobile

We wouldn't stay anywhere else! Best accommodations, centrally located, and a great staff. Breakfast in the room couldn't have enjoyed more. Wine and cheese in the evening was nice and met some fun couples. Avalon Grille is located just across the street and dinners there...amazing! Good times!

We recently stayed at Snug Harbor to celebrate my birthday. The location of the hotel is very central right in the middle of Avalon, on the water. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was a little on the small side but it was beautifully decorated and had a great amenities, also our bed was super comfortable and the pillows were also great. They bring you a charming breakfast in bed in a basket, as well as a nice wine and cheese happy hour. Even though the Inn is right in town our room was very quiet and restful. We really enjoyed our time at the Snug Harbor inn.

We recently spent two nights at the snug Harbor Inn in the St, Nicholas Suite. There's absolutely nothing that could be done to improve our stay. Our room looked out over Avalon Bay and the beach. Each evening we had wine and appetizer to take to our room. And in the morning, a very sizable continental breakfast was delivered to our room at the time we selected. We too found champagne and flowers in our room because this was our 24th anniversary. When we return to Catalina, we will definitely stay at this Inn.

Room Tip: I believe in you room would be more than satisfactory.

I stayed at the inn for one night in the San Clemente room. I cannot say enough about the inn. My stay was wonderful. The room was classically decorated, great view of the outdoors, and fireplace added to the coziness. The extra perks of wine and appetizers at the evening and fresh breakfast served to your room in the morning, made the experience a notch above the rest.

As a woman traveling alone, I felt very safe and secure during my stay. The inn was centrally located. After grabbing a bite to eat at a restaurant close to the inn, enjoyed a quiet night in the room with a fire and complimentary movie from the library.

I look forward to returning one day.

Room Tip: Hotel supplies ear plugs in each room to block out any outdoor noise.

We recently stayed 2 nights at the Snug Harbor Inn in the Santa Barbara Suite, and I can not say enough great things about this hotel. We arrived to flowers and champagne in our room for our anniversary. It's details like this that make it such a lovely place to stay. We loved the wine and cheese hour each evening, the breakfast that they bring to your room each morning, and the turn down service when you arrive back at your room each night complete with the fire place going, soft music playing and chocolates in the pillow! Our room was beautiful and clean with a harbor view and an amazingly comfortable bed. The hotel is right in the middle of everything, which we loved. (Don't worry about noise, we found the windows to be quite soundproof, plus they give you earplugs just in case). The staff is always willing to help whether it's making a last minute reservation for dinner or setting your up with beach chairs and mats. We absolutely loved our stay here and hope to return soon!

My wife and I planned our stay in Catalina Island for our 8th anniversary, only to discover all the major hotels were booked. We have a tightly packed schedule, so couldn't change our planned dates. The only place open was Snug Harbor Inn, and though it looked small, it had good reviews. We didn't expect much being a smaller place to stay, and when we arrived, we were surprised to find a very nice inn. The whole experience was top-notch and the people were all friendly and helpful. The breakfast was even more than I expected.

The whole stay was enjoyable and comfortable. And it is located right in the middle of Avalon, where all the shopping and activities are walking distance.

I don't recommend leaving the Air Conditioning on if you leave your room for some time, (at least in the Santa Barbara room), as it is very powerful.

Room Tip: We used Santa Barbara, which had some view of the ocean, but the Santa Catalina island would get you...

The Snug Harbor Inn is a fabulous, tiny (6 rooms) hotel right near the harbor and an easy walk from the ferry terminal. The entrance is off on a side street but every room has a harbor view. The rooms are totally updated with huge flat screen TVs and all the amenities. It is so soothing when you walk in the room with soft music playing and fresh flowers on the table. There was a lovely happy hour which included free wine and appetizers. The only problem was the library area where this was served was almost unbearably warm. This almost kept me from giving the hotel the top rating, but the service, the ambience, and the comfort are so amazing that I still had to give Snug Harbor Inn 5 stars. Also, the breakfast is delicious and perfect before heading out for your day's adventure. It is pricey but a special treat in Catalina!
