We stayed at Fogcatcher Inn for one night during our road trip in California and we were absolutely pleased with both the place and the people; Karen and the staff went the extra mile to make our night in Cambria a special one. The location is also very nice, right in front of the sea. There are several options in... More

This was a wonderful place to stay... very relaxing and charming. We loved the location and the room, and the breakfast was delicious. We ate out on the patio with a view of the ocean. We can't wait to go back!

It's superbly located, but so are several other hotels on Moonstone Drive in Cambria. What I suspect sets the FogCatcher apart is the high quality of its room decor. We had a huge room on the upper level overlooking the sea--understated beiges, greys, pale yellows. The pool was nice and protected from the winds by a see-though barrier. They could... More

Stayed here with my husband and sister and her spouse. It was windy when we arrived but the rooms were lovely. Lots of towels and the bedside lights that had USB and electrical sockets built in made my day as it is ten difficult to find sockets to charge. Lots of towels that were soft to the touch. Two downsides.... More

Thank you for your review of the Fogcatcher Inn. I do apologize for some of the issues you experienced while a guest of the Fogcatcher Inn.

A good hotel right opposite the beach. Very nice room, pleasantly decorated with good quality fittings and a gas fire. Good extensive breakfast. Nice pool, Jacuzzi and outdoor fire area. A choice of two restaurants within walking distance but plenty more in the town which is 5 min drive or a 25 min walk.

Lovely location, right on the coast. Rooms not what you might think from the website. Somewhat tired and unwelcoming. Staff great, as is the 'heated' pool and jacuzzi. Breakfast is very good, with something for everyone. Distinct lack of restaurants nearby, but plenty of options in Cambria itself. Nice boardwalk for running/walking by the sea. Also, keep an eye out... More

Great location in this little town on this beautiful peaceful bit of coastline. LOVED having a fireplace in our room. It was an easy walk to a couple restaurants. The front desk was helpful too. Would stay here again.

The name FogCatcher is apt, it is one of about four locations on the drive North that has the clouds roll in form the sea, 10 miles north or south brilliant sunshine, Cambria is a bit murky.

We stayed for two nights here in mid-June 2016. Staff were very welcoming and helpful/informative, the location is stunning and our room was really nice. The room had a lovely fireplace, was spacious and clean. Breakfast was good. Also, despite being next to the car park and reception area, the room was quiet. Easy access to the beach from the...
