Stayed at the Fogcatcher for one night on our way up the Pacific Highway. Booked on short notice. All without problems. Room was very nice (well, actually to be expected for the kind of money they are asking). The breakfast was rather disappointing as it reminded me a lot of the average motel breakfast plus the breakfast room is super... More

The room was really clean and modern and so was the pool area. The wifi was actually quite quick and we received cookies on arrival from the staff who were really friendly. Can't really fault this place as the location was lovely too as it was just a minute away from the beach! The only downside could be that the... More

We stopped off here overnight on our way from Pebble Beach to Santa Monica. It is in a great spot overlooking a lovely beach. The room was perfect for our requirements, up to date/modern and comfortable. Breakfast was OK albeit the cardboard plates are interesting, but I guess keep costs to a minimum. Overall we would definitely recommend the FogCatcher... More

The newly refurbished rooms were nice, the beds comfortable the and views over the ocean were lovely. Everything else about this hotel was a disappointment. The pool was tiny, the breakfast a ghastly bun fight and the wi-fi didn't work. This may be the best hotel in the area, we don't have anything to compare it to, but without the... More

My wife and I had a great weekend stay at the FogCatcher Inn. Very friendly attentive staff clean room. We had a upstairs room looking out at the ocean. Can't beet that. Cool whether for August. Nice breakfast. Great location. We had fun Wine tasting at nearby wineries.

I stayed here once before and was looking forward to staying again. The rooms are kept updated and are lovely and comfortable. The breakfast room is better than most. Moonstone beach is one of the most beautiful places in the world. I especially enjoy the walk on the cliff above the gorgeous beach and rocky coast. Don was very helpful.... More

Fogcatcher is one of 4 little motels along Moonstone Beach Road. Owned by a larger company (Pacifica?), they have all been recently re-done. Our room at Fogcatcher was spacious and tastefully decorated. The pool area, while it did not overlook the ocean, was adequate, and I was pleasantly surprised to find it well-heated (which is necessary for the central California... More

We stayed here for one night with our 2 teenagers. Stunning location across the road from the beach. Our room had a partial seaview and you could hear and smell the sea. Rooms were beautifully decorated and Molten Brown bath products a lovely treat! Good breakfast out on the patio with fabulous view. Although the sleeper couch was adequate I... More

I stayed overnight at the FogCatcher Inn with my two eldest children recently. It is situated on a road just of highway 1 that is next to the beach and overlooks the Pacific Ocean. The location is an ideal stopping place for travellers following Highway 1 between San Francisco and Los Angeles. I personally much prefer Cambria to Morro Bay,... More

Located at the moonstone beach it is only a few steps away from the walkway or the beach. We had romantic sunsets and early morning walks, tide pools and seals on the rocks included. The room had a wonderful high ceiling and was lovely decorated. The fireplace in the room only added to this nice ambient. The breakfast buffet was... More
