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.

What a scenic, peaceful and relaxing place. I spent an absolutely amazing night here in Cambria steps from the beach. The property is very nice, clean and comfortable. I walked to dinner down the street and watched the sunset while enjoying a great meal. The beach by the hotel is so natural and peaceful - a great location to relax... More

We stopped here for a night when our previous plans fell through. The staff was friendly, accommodating, and kind to my two small kids. We had a handicap accessible room which was clean and spacious. Bathroom was a bit outdated, but I appreciated the ground level access and proximity to the parking (directly in front of the room) which made... More

This hotel is one of several along Moonstone Drive. It's a great location across the road from the beach. There is boardwalk to stroll along the shore. The staff is very friendly and helpful; the breakfast is nice. The decor is French country-like and is nice but a bit dated. Nicely landscaped with a row of roses outside by garden... More

Stayed here for one night on a stop-over on the way down the Californian Coast. We wished, however, that we could have stayed longer! The rooms were very cosy with a fireplace controlled by the thermostat. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is right next to the "Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill" which was a fantastic place... More

This was our 2nd time staying at the FogCatcher and found it to be just as pleasant as the first time. Quiet rooms that are comfortable and quaint, a delicious hot breakfast, and of course just in front of the ocean and boardwalk for a lovely stay!

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
