Fogcatcher Inn is one of our favorite sites for a two-day getaway. We love awakening each morning and walking only steps to Moonstone Beach where we enjoy looking for ocean treasures. Sitting in the hot tub, one can smell the sea air and hear shorebirds. The cottages have been updated with down comforters and fireplaces for chilly nights. All in... More

Only stayed one night on our way to Santa Barbara but loved the hotel and location. Friendly staff gave us a sea view room at front of hotel, ideal to watch the stunning sunset. The room was superb with two comfortable queen beds and cute fireplace. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice. A walk along the beach boardwalk is... More

The Fogcatcher Inn is located on Moonstone Beach, facing the Pacific Ocean, just off the Pacific Coast Highway (1), half-way between Los Angeles and San Francisco in Cambria. We were traveling the PCH in 2012 and happened onto this lovely motel/inn with a fireplace in each room and big comfortable beds, and a lovely breakfast in the morning after a... More

Lovely room and lovely staff at this motel. Enjoyed our 2 night stay here. Wifi good, didn't use the pool as weather wasn't warm enough. Close to beach, Hearst castle and elephant seals. Not much in cambria to speak of.

Came down for a weekend in Cambria for a coastal bike ride. Wonderful hotel with roof lines that remind me of a Dutch village. Room had a ocean view and decor was very nice with plenty of space with a fireplace. Bed was just a little soft for my liking but still comfortable. Full breakfast available was very good. Would...

We had a King bed full ocean view and it was perfect - literally 50 yards from the beach, you can go to sleep with the sound of the waves. If you like to walk this location is fantastic, there is a walkway along Moonstone beach that is an easy walk. (it can be windy so plan for that) Cambria... More

This is a great little inn on motel row in Cambria, right across from the ocean. The reasons are several: the rooms are spacious, clean, and well appointed, including the bathrooms. The gas fireplace is easily started to dispel any evening chill. In the evening you can take your bottle of wine and sit around the outside fireplace with family... More

We had a wonderful room on the upper floor facing the ocean just across the road.The room was large with a very comfortable king-size bed and a sitting area with nice chairs and ocean views on two sides. The bathroom was spacious and featured some really nice shampoos, lotions etc. I really liked that they didn't give you a new... More

I loved the Fog Catcher Inn. We stayed only for one night whilst driving down Highway 1, wish we could have stayed longer. The location is excellent, right on an unspoiled sea front, beautiful views. We had a room with a partial sea view, it was very light and airy with several windows. There was also a fire and it... More

This was a pleasant surprise as when we arrived at the hotel it looked quite small and remote. The rooms had high ceilings, lovely fireplace, comfortable big beds and Molton Brown products which I loved. It was on the beach front and we went for a drink just down from the hotel. We walked into town but everything closed at... More
