Loved the location! The boardwalk was right across the street. Three doors down was the Moonstone Bar and Grill, which has delicious food and drinks. Loved the spacious rooms and the fireplace was a cozy touch. The breakfast room was large and the food options were the best I've seen in any of the hotels I've stayed in. The staff... More

Fogcatcher Inn is located in Cambria. Cross the street and you stroll along the beach enjoying the brisk weather and the brilliant sunset. The newly-remodeled room that we selected is cozy and well-maintained. The recommended restaurant, Sea Chest, is within walking distance and quite neighborly. The complimentary breakfast is homemade, tasty, and plentiful. The staff does a great job maintaining... More

The Fogcatcher Inn is a wonderful place to stay near the water in Moonstone beach. The rooms are modern, spacious , with a fireplace which adds a touch of luxury. The location is great for a relaxing, calming place to stay on the central coast. It's the second time we have stayed there overnight on our drive between north and... More

We had a room looking out to the ocean. Loved it. Very homey and spacious. The staff was great. This hotel is away from the main street, but not too far, so you don't get a lot of noise, cars etc. A delightful gem on the coast that I would highly recommend.

We stopped here for one night on the way to LA from San Francisco. The rooms are spacious and well equipped, the gas fire was a nice touch. Lovely location across from the sea, walking distance to good restaurants, peaceful. Helpful staff. Would have liked to stay longer.

This was our destination for a much needed family break and we were not disappointed. Style of hotel is so perfect to the area. We had a partial view suite which was right on the road, which wasn't bad with evening traffic to sleep. Slept with the windows open and could hear the ocean waves crashing across the street -...

Great beachfront location. Cambria town a couple of miles away. Rooms clean and well appointed. Breakfast buffet adequate but the area can get quite crowded. We visited lighthouse and Hearst Castle, both worth doing.

I can highly recommend this place. Excellent, modern rooms with fireplace. Heated pool and hot tub. Comprehensive, full breakfast buffet. Cookies on arrival. $50 voucher off our next visit. Difficult to find fault with anything about it, to be honest. Oh, and friendly helpful staff.

We stayed one night here, en route between San Francisco and LA, and so we could visit the Hearst Castle. Its right across the road from the beach and amongst a line of small hotels/motels and restaurants. Its a very short drive into the main street of Cambria, where there are several restaurants, but you don't need to do that... More

FogCatcher proved to be a great choice for a place to stay in Cambria. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a suite facing the ocean, and our rooms were recently updated, very spacious and clean. The bedroom offered a comfortable mattress and a large flatscreen tv. On our June visit, there was no need for a/c. Open windows... More
