Stayed just one night with my mom on a quick trip to Hearst Castle. Location was ideal; literally across the street from the beach. Very cute and comfortable. Plenty of parking. Did not use the pool, but it looked nice. Nice touch having a fireplace in the room, made it extra cozy. Free breakfast in the morning was excellent, a... More

I stayed here only one night while on my road trip. They upgraded my room to a suite with no extra charge. It's right across the street from the beach. The staff is very nice and helpful. I would definitely go back!

We only stayed here for one night but really loved this place. The staff were organized, professional and friendly and the property is well maintained. We had a partial ocean view room that also had a fireplace, it's a very unique experience. It's just across the road from the beach on a long line of inn's and hotel's. I would... More

The proximity to the ocean, clean rooms, trails, downtown, and visiting Hearst castle made it ideal. The full breakfast was very good to have with our group, even the coffee was good. It's within close walking distance to 2 restaurants. And bring your pole to fish off the rocks. The only downside was the pool wasn't really heated. At least... More

The Fogcatcher Inn was the perfect place for a relaxing weekend - no work - just enjoying the pristine Moonstone Beach from the view in our room and the perfectly appointed room. The office staff was efficient and helpful and willing to help with directions, restaurants - whatever we needed. Definitely will go here again.

This the first visit to Cambria my family and I have taken. We were delighted by the hospitality and the welcoming atmosphere at the Fogcatcher Inn. Our room was very comfortable.The complimentary breakfast was one of the better complimentary breakfasts I have had. We will return to the Fogcatcher Inn next time we visit.

What a scenic, peaceful and relaxing place. I spent an absolutely amazing night here in Cambria steps from the beach. The property is very nice, clean and comfortable. I walked to dinner down the street and watched the sunset while enjoying a great meal. The beach by the hotel is so natural and peaceful - a great location to relax... More

We stopped here for a night when our previous plans fell through. The staff was friendly, accommodating, and kind to my two small kids. We had a handicap accessible room which was clean and spacious. Bathroom was a bit outdated, but I appreciated the ground level access and proximity to the parking (directly in front of the room) which made... More

This hotel is one of several along Moonstone Drive. It's a great location across the road from the beach. There is boardwalk to stroll along the shore. The staff is very friendly and helpful; the breakfast is nice. The decor is French country-like and is nice but a bit dated. Nicely landscaped with a row of roses outside by garden... More

Stayed here for one night on a stop-over on the way down the Californian Coast. We wished, however, that we could have stayed longer! The rooms were very cosy with a fireplace controlled by the thermostat. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is right next to the "Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill" which was a fantastic place... More
