So this review is a bit late as we stayed in early November. In fact, it was the weekend of the big triathalon, and if I have any negative, it would be that they start setting up VERY early for this event on the street right outside the room. It was super noisy! Not the hotel's fault, although some notice...

Just six perfectly appointed rooms on one floor in this lovely place. Delightful staff, beautiful breakfast served in your room, wine and hors d'oeuvres at five. Right on the waterfront with lovely views. Jetted tub, gas fireplace. Couldn't be better!

My husband and I spent our anniversary weekend on Catalina and selected Snug Harbor from the reviews. From the moment of contacting the hotel for reservations, the staff provided excellent service and our room was ready for us when we arrived at noon. The gas fireplace was a nice touch, and we enjoyed the room immensely. The location is excellent...

Romantic getaway weekend in a lovely room, Santa Catalina Rm, over looking the boardwalk and harbor in the center of everything. It was raining when we checked an and the hotel had a nice fire going in the fireplace and soft music playing. Continental breakfast was served in the room and early evening wine & appetizers in the lounge. Staff...

Because I was taking someone special as a treat, I called twice to hear about the rooms, and was lucky that the San Nicholas Suite was available. It is the room with a full ocean view. And a delight. The location in town is perfect. I can not say enough positive about the entire staff, and that includes the housekeepers....

This trip was a holiday gift, the major part of the gift being the "Penthouse Suite" at this hotel on Avalon Beach, directly overlooking the water. First of all, the hotel is immaculate and meticulously maintained, which are important to me. Service is friendly and attentive, with a charming in-room breakfast each morning. However, my host for the trip was...

Dear LATraveller77: Thank you very much for your kind words that our Inn is "immaculate and meticulously maintained". We are a bit confused since we do not have a "Penthouse Suite" nor described that way but all of our rooms do view the ocean and have "charming in-room breakfast each morning" delivered to the room. We do feel our rooms...

Loved this place! My boyfriend and I came here for our anniversary, and after lengthy research, we settled on the Snug Harbor. From the very start of check-in, I knew we had made the right decision. We only stayed one night, but in order to make the most of our trip, we arrived to Catalina very early on Sunday and...

My husband and I came here this past weekend and we absolutely adored this inn. We stayed in the San Nicolas room, which was just as pictured, and had a beautiful view overlooking the ocean. The room was gracefully designed, with updated bathroom and room amenities. Our favorite parts were the wine and hors d'oeuvres in the evening, and also...
