4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Although the Cambria beach is almost always cold and you cannot walk along the sand for very far, it is definitely worth a night to see this darling little town. This inn had lovely rooms and warm cookies upon check-in. The breakfast was nice (eggs, sausages, waffles, potatoes, and a variety of breads and yogurts) and the rooms had fireplaces.... More

A lovely quaint hotel on the sea front and a 15 min walk into Cambria. Very comfortable room, with wifi and good facilities. Boardwalk along the coast into Cambria is a beautiful walk, although beaches aren't that good. First class coffee machine and nice breakfast.

Great access to Moonstone Beach, and we booked a partial Ocean King upgraded room. There were many things I liked about this property and few I wasn't so crazy about. The pro's: great location on the beach drive, modern room with fireplace, upgraded amenities- Keurig coffee machine in our room, bath robes, large bathroom with nice toiletries, deluxe bedding, complementary...

Have stayed at this motel on prior visits. Booked a two night stay on our road trip and was disappointed this time. We had the opportunity to upgrade to a suite with a sleeper sofa for the kiddos. The suite reminded me of a upgraded basement for housing guests who stop by. Not appealing at all. The location is about... More

This motel is across the beach. The rooms are ok and a kind of modern. The best part is the bathroom which is nice and clean. The room smelled when we came in but after we opened the windows it was ok. The so called " garden view " is a kind of joke because when you open the back... More

My wife and I did a roadtrip on Highway 1 in June and stayed at The Fogcatcher Inn on our way south to LA. Out of all hotels we stayed at we both agreed that The Fogcatcher Inn was the absolute best hotel during the whole trip. A very nice room, nice and helpful staff, perfectly fine breakfast and beautiful... More

We drove from SanFran to LA and stayed in the hotel for a night. It's such a lovely hotel! The room was very spacious, and it's very relax and comfortable. It's the best hotel in our western US trip! It's only short walk to beach, nice to go there for watch sun raise. Their breakfast were good as well :)

If the Hearst Castle is on your to do list there are a few corporate hotel/motels right off Pacific Coast Hwy in San Simeon CA right at the base of the Castle road that are fine but if you have seen one Best Western you get the picture. If you just go 3 miles down the road to a tiny... More

This is the most adorable place. All along Moonstone beach there are sweet, quaint little hotels you'll remember as a kid (all renovated with modern conveniences of course). This one was modeled after the Cotswolds with it's soft pastel yellow stucco & thatched roofs. The beach is right across the very lightly traveled Moonstone Drive and there is a boardwalk... More
