I was taking my daughter up the coast for her 18th birthday. We looked at all the hotel and research them throughly. We found The Fogcatcher and it looked wonderful. I waited until I was assured that I had the time off before I booked, sadly I ended up paying a lot more money by waiting a week. The hotel... More

My husband and eleven year old granddaughter were with me this trip and they loved it too. My granddaughter said the FogCatcher was her favorite of all the places we visited... More

We were very happy with this motel. We thought the room was comfortable and the newly remodeled bathroom was very stylish. The location is perfect with a simply magnificent beach across the street. Beachcombing early in the morning was peaceful and invigorating. Parking just outside our room made it east to get settled in. We thought breakfast, although not fancy,... More

We spent one night on way back from San Diego to SF. I looked at the pictures on their website and booked the place based on reviews. Its right across from the beach. The rooms are newly renovated and very comfortable. The breakfast is great!

My family just returned from a one night stay at The FogCatcher Inn. The check-in was simple and pleasant, including the free cookies! The staff was very helpful with all our needs. The location across a non-busy street to the ocean was spectacular. The room was nice, included a fireplace! But as the night wore on it became hot and... More

We just returned from a three day stay in Cambria at the FogCatcher Inn on Moonstone Beach. We were pleasantly surprised to see they had completely renovated the room we are accustomed to staying in to and from destinations up the coast. It is well done. My disappointment is as one might expect the price also has gone up, but... More

The FogCatcher Inn at Cambria Californa is the worst place I have ever stayed!!! The rooms are dark. claustrophobic, smelly and it feels like you are in a hobbit house. For the amount of money we spent I expected much more!!! The rooms were supposedly remodeled, but all it they did was a sub-standard paint job (which was already peeling)... More
