We spent 3 nights at Fogcatcher in April and generally enjoyed our stay. We had an 2nd floor room facing the ocean so we had full benefit of the location, which is unbeatable. The room was recently renovated and everything was clean and fresh. The property itself is charming with a delightful "rustic" feel. And the staff is friendly. In... More

Stayed at the Fogcatcher early April with family for one night. Arrived mid afternoon to be greeted by friendly and chatty staff. Given key card and map, found room easily and parked outside. The room was very spacious and very clean. Kids went swimming in the outside pool which they enjoyed while we relaxed in the loungers after our long... More

Excellent hotel with amazing views and outstanding variety of things to do! The hotel is directly across a small rode from the beach and 10-15 minutes from Hearst Castle and hundreds of elephant sea lions sleeping/birthing/mating on the beach (depending on the season). You fall asleep listening to the waves crashing and the Moonstone Beach Bar and Grill has decent... More

The service went beyond expectations! The breakfasts (included in cost) were delicious -- excellent food, great selection and everything was always hot!! Felt privileged to be able to... More

Very happy with our stay at Fogcatcher Inn. After an enjoyable afternoon at Hearst Castle, we took a brief drive to FCI. The women at the front desk were very nice and welcoming. Our room was clean with nice amenities such as a microwave and Keurig machine as well as toiletries by Molton Brown. We brought our own Peets Keurig... More
