“Awesome romantic getaway!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2010

This week my husband and I went to Catalina for one night to celebrate his birthday and we LOVED the Snug Harbor Inn. We stayed in the San Nicholas room which we highly recommend. They had a fabulous wine and appetizer plate brought to your room to eat while we overlooked the whole bay, and they did the same with your breakfast in the AM. The place is literally smack in the middle of the main road so you can walk either way super easily. We went in the off season so it was dead quiet but I could see how if you went in the middle of summer it might be a bit noisy because it is right above the beach but, for us, it was perfect. The customer service was excellent, and every detail of the room was clean and welcoming. We would definitely go back here again and highly recommend it!!!

We stayed in the San Nicolas. The view of the harbor was fantastic. The room was very tastefully decorated in a nautical theme and the bed was very comfortable. The room is smaller than we thought based on the photos. The king-size bed takes up most of the space in the room. Other than that, it was very cozy and the fireplace is a nice addition. Also, the evening happy hour was fantastic. In the lounge, they had a variety of red/white wines with hors d'oevres such as different cheeses, fruit, dips, crackers, salami, etc. Also, the staff was very nice and hospitable.

Snug Harbor Inn was absolutely amazing and JESSI at the front desk was so sweet and genuine and just down right good at his job. We traveled with my boyfriend and his parents in from the east coast.. We stayed in the ANACAPA ROOM and the SAN CLEMENTE ROOM. They were both beautiful, clean, cozy and loved the fireplace because it was quite chilly out. The wine and cheese at night and the beautiful breakfast in the morning was just an added plus to this wonderful place. I would recommend 100%!!!!

Comfort and great amenities like a fireplace, intimate wine and Hors D'eorves with other guests and a wonderful breakfast served in our room. The location couldn't be better and the staff was friendly and helpful.

This was a perfect romantic weekend getaway. We got the weekday special where they include ferry rides for 2, which comes down to a very good price. The moment we stepped into our room, San Nicholas, we were impressed. It is cozy and has direct view of the ocean, which is hard to find. The night we stayed there were only 2 rooms of guests, so they put the wine and cheese in our room. We got a whole bottle of red wine plus the complimentary champagne for our anniversary! We almost did not have to leave our cozy little room for dinner. The new flat screen tv we had was impressive given this is a small B&B. There was also a fireplace in the room which made the experience all the more romantic. The bed was so comfortable that we did not want to wake up in the morning. Breakfast came on the exact time we asked for. It was delivered in a basket with the most delicious bread in the world. I wonder if I can buy this bread anywhere.
Overall, this was a perfect experience for us. We would definitely return in the near future.

This was an outstanding trip for the wife and myself. We were greeted by a warm desk clerk named Jesse. He answered a lot of questions for these first time visitors. The entire staff wented out of their way to make us feel welcome. We enjoyed three nights and we will be back for another visit.
