From the mixed reviews I wasn't sure what to expect so I was pleased to find the Fogcatchers Inn was very nice. The room was very spacious and well kitted out. We walked just a few doors along to a pleasant restaurant for dinner and to watch the sun go down. The beach was spectacular and was only a few... More

This hotel is a little gem. Right on the coast, ust a little walk down and I sat and watched harbour seals lying on the rocks, look out to the horizon and I could see whales migrating south. The boardwalk takes you along the beach, there is much to see. The hotel is clean and the staff are really nice... More

We stayed here last week; the buildings are nice and the rooms comfortable, if a little dated. Staff at check in were friendly and helpful. Was surprised by the lack of air conditioning as would've expected that of a hotel of this standard. Breakfast was self service with bagels, bread, wafffles, cereals as well as sausages, eggs etc. We thought... More

The Fogcatcher was a good average , well worn hotel in a great location. It was around the same price as we paid for some much higher credentialed hotels in prime city locations. As is the case in a lots of american hotels dogs are permitted and I had the misfortune to step in a dog turd in the dark... More

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.
