positive: close to the sea, good breakfast negative, noisy (close to Highway#1), very old carpets which give you a feeling of dirtyness, very dark inside, pool without shower. would not go there again.

I booked this hotel back in November last year as a one night stay on our family holiday. Our 5 week trip to the USA was to celebrate my 40th birthday and wedding anniversary. When I booked I received an email offering my family of 4 to a free upgrade to a suite which meant that my husband and I... More

My wife and I were touring Big Sur on our Harley and wanted a place to land near the water after our ride. This was definitely a great choice!. The Inn is located across the street from the beach but don't let that deter you, the ocean is easily seen and the location of this place is excellent. We booked... More

This is a super OLD MOTEL!!! This place needs to be updated and remodeled. Everything was super old and outdated. The queen beds were full size not queen. You can tell the beds were so old. The springs poked through. I can't believe people rated this place 5 stars. For a motel I would give it 3 stars. If it... More

This Inn is first class. The setting is outstanding. It is around 25 yards from the beach. The sounds, sites, smells, and taste of the ocean are wonderful. The rooms are very well done and very comfortable. The breakfast is delicious and served in a very nice room. The front desk staff are warm and welcoming. The location adjacent to... More

The staff was really friendly and very helpful with ideas of things to do. The rooms were very nice and the location was great. Will plan to go there again when we get back to the area. Nice breakfast as well.

First time at Fogcatcher Inn this July, though not our first visit to Moonstone Beach. Fogcatcher is bigger than some of the inns on this stretch and benefits from this in my opinion. Reception is staffed 24 hours and free tea, coffee and water is always available. A full buffet breakfast is served in a breakfast room - so much... More

I totally enjoyed my stay at the Fogcatcher Inn. The room was very spacious, clean with a lovely set-up. The inn sits directly across from the ocean with a beautiful scene that is breathless. The staff was so responsive, helpful and extremely helpful. The only complaint I have, which is no fault of the hotel but location, is my cell... More

On our honeymoon trip along the coast we chose to stay here as it looked warm, inviting and romantic. How wrong we were! The photos are highly misleading. The rooms are depressing with few having decent views, we upgraded and spent $300 just to get a half decent view. The rooms smell damp, the beds are uncomfortable and make you... More

The hotel's location is very good. We got a room with a partial view of the ocean but the ocean could be seen only from the door At the reception were polite and provided all the information needed pleasantly. The room (two double beds) was clean, but not all accessories working properly. The breakfast was good and the trip along... More
