When I found out that my favorite place in Cambria was sold out I checked reviews on the other hotels in the area and decided on the Fogcatcher. I wasn't a complete bust, but I doubt I'll stay there again. Upon entering the room after dinner, my wife remarked that it smelled like pee. We complained to the front desk... More

Decent property...room adequate...excellent location....great beach access....but minimal customer service. My disabled husband asked the front desk for an extra pillow and he was told no, "there are enough pillows in your room". (He needed the pillow to help position his disabled leg in bed!) We were disturbed by very loud plumbing noises and plumbing repair noises and the clerk I... More

I could not be more happy with my stay at Fogcatcher Inn! My room was beautiful and exceptionally clean. The staff was warm and welcoming. I wanted for nothing. A big surprise was the amazing breakfast they serve. I was expecting a nice continental breakfast but received a full buffett with pretty much anything I could possibly want. Would I... More

Aptly named, the inn sits on Moonstone Beach, a delightful cove witha boardwalk which stretches the entire coast. Mornings we had fog, which burned off by about 10.30 am. The room and bathroom were large, and the faux fire provided a lovely light as well as warmth. Breakfast was great, the sausages inparticular. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate were available... More

Driving along the street of many, many hotels, this was definitely the cutest to pull into. I was surprised at how large the room was. And, the bathroom. Very clean and with a fireplace to warm you at night. Right across from the beach. The included breakfast was very generous - eggs, oatmeal, bacon and I was full when I... More

We stayed as part of our trip up the west coast and thoroughly enjoyed it. We arrived without a booking and that was no problem, great room with a view of the beach, comfortable and clean. The breakfast was rudimentary but the whole package was good value.

My wife and I recently stayed mid-week at the Fog Catcher Inn. The check in was quick, easy and very friendly - same for check out. The Fogcatcher is right across the road from Moonstone Beach which has spectacular views of the beach and sunsets. Our first impression was that the grounds of the Inn were very neat and clean...

Cambria turned into a very nice surprise, and the Fogcatcher made that happen. This hotel is very popular by the number of people we met there. Very cosy rooms and a lovely breakfast. The beach is right across the street which we loved. The sunset was amazing. Would love to come back.

My wife and I have been staying at the Fog Catcher every year for six years now. We first stayed at the Fog Catcher for part of our honey moon and now we go back for each and every anniversary. Others have tried to get us to stay elsewhere on Moonstone Beach but we love the Fog Catcher. The location... More

My two cousins and I were on a tour up the coast and couldn't find a place in Paso Robles. One cousin brother remembered staying at the FogCatcher years ago and suggested we try it. It was marvelous: Katherine both on the phone and at the front desk was the most efficient and pleasant check-in person; the rooms were spacious,... More
