This single storey motel is situated yards from the beach and the Pacific. Staff were friendly and pleasant and as we were early were allowed to leave our luggage at reception so that we could explore the very charming town nearby. The theme is sun and sea bleached wood and looks as if it has been here forever. The rooms... More

We are a local family from San Luis Obispo. We booked two oceanfront rooms for a relaxing mid-week getaway. Everything about our stay was wonderful. The rooms were perfect, the ocean was spectacular, the pool and spa were great for our family, the breakfast was delicious and hot, and the staff was friendly and accommodating. Highlights: watching dolphins jumping at... More

We had no idea what we were booking when we decided to break our drive from LA to San Fran in half. The Fog Catcher and its location took us completely by surprise. We had found a picture perfect strip of seaside inns right "on" the beach. It was magnificently cozy and warm and inspiring. The gentleman on office duty... More

This was our first time in Cambria and the FogCatcher Inn was highly recommended to us. We were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was very romantic with a fireplace and view of the ocean across the way. After a nice walk on the boardwalk, it was nice to come back and relax by the... More

We were only there for one night but wished we would have spent the whole weekend. Plan on making this a yearly event for my birthday. Staff was friendly and helpful about town information. They are so dog friendly there was a bowl and dog bed in the room. Right across from the beach need I say more.

My husband, teenage son and I recently had a wonderful stay at the Fog Catcher Inn. You can't beat the beautiful location right on the beach. My son flew a kite at the beach, we enjoyed walking on the boardwalk, walking to a wonderful restaurant for dinner and using the hotel's pool and spa. The staff is very friendly, breakfast... More

We stayed here for 3 nights to celebrate our anniversary and explore the area. The reservations agent was kind and helpful and offered us sparkling wine on arrival.

The Fogcatcher Inn is directly across from Moonstone Beach. There is a beautiful boardwalk along the ocean. Our room was clean and charming. This is not a posh beach resort, but a spacious, comfortable inn. Our room had a fire place and excellent lighting. Nice linens and bed. We slept with our window open and could hear the waves crashing... More

The FogCatcher Inn is a most pleasant spot if you are in the Cambria area. My wife and I were in that area to take in the Hearst Castle. We wanted a place that was nearby. The FogCatcher Inn is only about five miles from the Castle and very close to downtown Cambria, which is loaded with several good restaurants.... More

This was always my favorite hotel for a quiet retreat on beautiful Moonstone Beach (quiet road, boardwalk trail, beach access.) It is a well-built hotel with high-ceilinged rooms, fireplaces and quality beds and bedding. Breakfast (a nice selection of hot and cold foods) is self-serve in a breakfast room with patio. I am sad to notice that since the hotel... More
