The Fog Catcher Inn was recommended by other dog owners as being dog friendly. Staff is very pleasant, location is just steps from the beach. "Dog" rooms are near small grass areas right off the parking area, so not quiet at all. Room was clean and comfortable, though bathroom is small. Dog bowl and bed are provided. We brought our...

We stopped overnight during a trip down highway 1. This is a traditional inn right across from the beach. We were greeted with cookies and a hot drink and when the receptionist realised it was my birthday a bottle of fizz. Really helpful and friendly giving us tips on where to eat out. Rooms were large with high ceilings, beds... More

positive: close to the sea, good breakfast negative, noisy (close to Highway#1), very old carpets which give you a feeling of dirtyness, very dark inside, pool without shower. would not go there again.

I booked this hotel back in November last year as a one night stay on our family holiday. Our 5 week trip to the USA was to celebrate my 40th birthday and wedding anniversary. When I booked I received an email offering my family of 4 to a free upgrade to a suite which meant that my husband and I... More

My wife and I were touring Big Sur on our Harley and wanted a place to land near the water after our ride. This was definitely a great choice!. The Inn is located across the street from the beach but don't let that deter you, the ocean is easily seen and the location of this place is excellent. We booked... More

This is a super OLD MOTEL!!! This place needs to be updated and remodeled. Everything was super old and outdated. The queen beds were full size not queen. You can tell the beds were so old. The springs poked through. I can't believe people rated this place 5 stars. For a motel I would give it 3 stars. If it... More

I am so disappointed we did not meet your expectations. We like to impress upon our guests our lovely rooms and friendly staff and it sounds like we missed the opportunity with you. We are delighted to share, however, we are expecting a remodel at the end of 2014 and looking forward to having a fresh new look to our... More

This Inn is first class. The setting is outstanding. It is around 25 yards from the beach. The sounds, sites, smells, and taste of the ocean are wonderful. The rooms are very well done and very comfortable. The breakfast is delicious and served in a very nice room. The front desk staff are warm and welcoming. The location adjacent to... More

The staff was really friendly and very helpful with ideas of things to do. The rooms were very nice and the location was great. Will plan to go there again when we get back to the area. Nice breakfast as well.

First time at Fogcatcher Inn this July, though not our first visit to Moonstone Beach. Fogcatcher is bigger than some of the inns on this stretch and benefits from this in my opinion. Reception is staffed 24 hours and free tea, coffee and water is always available. A full buffet breakfast is served in a breakfast room - so much... More

I totally enjoyed my stay at the Fogcatcher Inn. The room was very spacious, clean with a lovely set-up. The inn sits directly across from the ocean with a beautiful scene that is breathless. The staff was so responsive, helpful and extremely helpful. The only complaint I have, which is no fault of the hotel but location, is my cell... More
