My parents and I stayed at the FogCatcher in on our way to San Francisco. Couldn't ask for better service and a nicer stay. Staff were very friendly, free breakfast was tasty and the rooms were spacious and warm (it was the middle of winter). Would stay there again if i am ever in this neck of the woods.

We stayed at the Fog Catcher Inn with our Corvette group. There were 20 of us 10 couples. The inn is located right across from the Ocean and the boardwals that is a pleasant walk into town. One of our couples had an annivarsary, when we returned from dinner on Friday night that couple's room was decorated with the most amazing "towell critters" I have ever seen. The entire staff was friendly and very accomodating throughout our stay. We will return.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms have a fireplace if not ask for a room with one it really adds to the stay.

We stayed over the long New Years holiday (3nts) and had a wonderful time. Nice large room with a fireplace that worked very well for the cold nts in Cambria. We opted for the garden view room with one king size bed and it was located at the end of the walkway which was nice since it was away from the parking lot area. The hotel is across Moonstone beach and the views cannot be beat. It was in a very convenient area to visit Hearst Castle. Front desk staff was very helpful and the included breakfast was actually a nice surprise. The coffee was excellent!! Overall, we felt this was a great room value during the holiday. Although not super modern, it was clean, comfortable and met all our needs during this visit. We were bummed since we didn't pack our swimsuits and forget they had a nice heated pool and Jacuzzi! We will definitely stay here again and would love to visit during the warmer months and stay in an oceanfront room.

The FogCatcher Inn was a beautiful find. Ideally located by the seaside in the small village of Cambria the staff were friendly and welcoming on arrival. Unfortunately we were only there for the overnight stay on the way up Highway 1 to San Francisco. The fireplace in the room was the special highlight but the heated pool seemed welcoming and would have been nice had we something to wear in the pool. A beautiful morning walk along the beach boardwalk was followed up by a hearty breakfast in the dining room. All facilities were clean, comfortable and very functional. The staff recommended many restaurants in town. We chose to eat at the Old Stone Station. My medium rib-eye steak with jacket potato was easily the best meal of out 3 weeks in the US. It would have been nice to have spent another night here to truly take in what the FogCatcher Inn and surrounds have to offer. A small piece of paradise - I recommend a visit.

Room Tip: Be sure to arrive there early enough to watch the sun set over the ocean across the road.

My family of 5 stayed here over Christmas and we enjoyed all three rooms. Two of the rooms were ocean view and one was close to the breakfast room. All were spacious and comfortable; the staff was gracious. Breakfast was varied and filling. Two of our party had stayed there before and I understand why they wanted to go back. We would definitely go back if we were in the area.

Visit to Hearst Castle, walk on the boardwalk, observing elephant seals and purusing the shops in Cambria were all enjoyable.

Room Tip: We thought the ocean view rooms worth the price.
