We loved the Fogcatcher Inn, it was good value and well located near Hurst Castle. Surprisingly they do a very good 'help yourself' breakfast every day which added to the good value. We had a lovely room (#106) just across from reception. There is a small pool and jacuzzi just right for relaxing after a day driving and sightseeing -... More

Arriving without reservation, we were lucky being assigned room # 303 in the front, facing the ocean with the surf muffling the sound of the occasionally passing car. The hotel is wedged front to back between Moonstone Beach Drive and US 1 in the back. The latter may make rooms in the back less desirable, besides lack of ocean view.... More

We stayed just one night after a fantastic drive down highway 1. This is a small hotel in a very quiet road of hotels directly opposite the beautiful beach just off the main road. Our room was lovely with high ceilings and a fire that we used as it was chilly in the evening and early morning. The staff were... More

The Fogcatcher is located right across the street from Moonstone Beach. The rooms are charming and conveniently located. The pool is small, but kept at a comfortable temperature. Breakfast is provided and there are plenty of choices. Beautiful views of ocean from front of property.

Our stay at FogCatcher was a wonderful one. We were travelling with 2 small dogs, there to visit Hearst Castle. The Inn caters well to those travelling with dogs...they even have a doggie bed and water bowl for the little ones! The rooms were very nice (no A/C, but with the windows open, there is enough of a cross breeze... More

First of all, this is not so much a hotel, as a motel, but a delightful one at that. The location is superb and it was lovely to wake to the sound of the Pacific breaking on the shore. Our room was fine, quite sweet but nothing special and the complimentary breakfast was good. However, we arrived by taxi having... More

I love this hotel. Great location and great place to get away from it all. I love the area and the location of the hotel can't be better. I highly recommend this hotel as a couple retreat or a family get away. The staff is extremely helpful and the rooms are cozy. I love hearing the ocean from the room... More

This inn is right on the Pacific coast - I mean right on the coast; we could see and hear the surf from our room. We were scheduled to spend one night at The Fogcatcher on our way up the PCH, but cancelled our next night in Carmel to stay here and extra night and day. The beach is fantastic;... More
