My husband and I went to Cambria for our first overnight trip while we were dating. After we got married, we've been going every year since for the last six years. We've even introduced our parents and our now 3-year old daughter. We plan to bring our daughter and our new 4-month old daughter this year as well. We stayed... More

My family and I had a wonderful overnight stay here. The cookies are a nice little touch. My young daughters were tired after the long drive, but the cookies just brightened their day. The inn is across from the beach, so the location is just perfect. The rooms were a nice size. Breakfast is a nice spread! I liked the... More

We stayed at the Fogcatcher Inn in August 2009. Whole experience was excellent, room was very spacious, staff were very pleasnt and helpful, breakfast was good, nice pool. Real highlight was the setting with beautiful beach and coastal walk to enjoy.

We were so impressed with this hotel. The room was fabulous 2 beautiful big beds, lovely linen, and a gas fire in the room. This is a dog friendly hotel and in the past dog friendly rooms have been horrible. You would not think this was a dog friendly room it was just beautiful! The staff were very helpful they... More

It was alright clean and bed was comfortable. It was pet friendly also so we could bring our r 10 lb critter. Breakfast was great. However, the structure was very strange. We were told we would be placed right across from the office door. We felt paranoid having our dog and wondered if that is why we were placed there.... More

We stopped in Cambria on our way from San Fran to San Diego. We had not booked a hotel but came upon a row of hotels on Moonstone beach. We stayed at the fog Catcher and really loved the place. Our room was quiet, not ocean view, and we even had a fire place (gas), It was so romantic. Unfortunely,... More

I would not recommend this hotel, B&B to anyone. I made our reservation at the Fog Catcher Inn after reading all the wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor. The only positive is the location. The property is run down, the rooms musty and old. We had an upstairs room with full ocean view. Unfortunately, there were campers parked right across the... More

From the pictures on the hotel's booking website I was expecting something far better than this. The hotel is dingy both inside and out. Our room - a double queen garden view (I don't think so!) was dark and the bathroom was not remotely luxurious. Functional and basic is how I would describe it. Breakfast was totally unimpressive - served... More

We stayed in a two bedroom family sweet with a large kitchen, dining area, and living room. The room was very spacious and the hotel is right across the street from the beach. The breakfast buffet was great and included scrambled eggs, sausage, do-it-yourself waffles, toast, juice, etc. The pool and hot-tub were nice. The only concern guests might have... More

I was just recommending the Fog Catcher Inn to a friend who lives in Reno, when I realized I never reviewed our stay in October 2008. To begin with, rates are lower in October and the weather is incredible. It was 80 the 2 days we stayed there with sunny skies and beautiful incredibly pink sunsets (due to the wild... More
