“Great Place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

We ended up here after the government shutdown which disrupted our planned holiday. This was a great find ( thank you trip advisor) the welcome was great, our room comfortable with nice touches, from the toiletries to the fridge and there are two nice restaurants within easy walk. Great benches at the front for watching the sunset which pretty spectacular. Good complementary breakfast, though more fruit would be nice. The hot tub was so warm it was like a hot bath. Great after a day walking. Highly recommend.

Arriving here, the first thing we realised is how close to the sea we were and that we were in time for an amazing sunset. We were warmly greeted, and given one of the rooms on the ground level due to husband's difficulty walking. On checking in we were offered tea and cookies. A nice touch. The room... the first thing to mention is the gorgeous fireplace. One flick of a switch and we had roaring flames. Going to sleep was easy with the sound of the waves crashing. Another unexpected treat was walking up the coast a bit and seeing the Milky Way. This really was a great place to stay on Moonstone Beach. Tip : go to breakfast before half 9. Food good but was surprised at the mess left where people had stacked used plates and utensil's. Food was good. More toasters needed too. Overall, would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for taking time to review us. The sunsets this time of year are some of the best anywhere. We are very pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. We have also received our new toaster which can toast 300 slices an hour so there will no longer be any wait for toast. We are thankful for everyone’s patience while we were waiting on the replacement toaster. We look forward to your return.

This is my second stay at the delightful Fog catcher Inn. Both times the stay has been perfect in every way. The rooms are spacious and clean. The bathrooms have extra nice soaps and shampoos. The staff are so helpful and pleasant. The dining room is very homey and cheerful with a delicious hot breakfast. If the weather is nice, you can eat outside. When we checked out, we received a $50 dollar off coupon for our next visit. Pretty nice!!

A really lovely setting and such attentive and friendly staff that made the stay special. Nothing was too much trouble for the reception staff and were extremely knowledgeable about the local area. The rooms were fantastic - very large and well decorated. Hot tub and swimming pool a real bonus. Would most definitely recommend it

We loved our stay at the Fog Catcher Inn. Even though it was a short one we enjoyed every minute, from the warm greeting when we arrived to the charming room, ample parking, and great location. We walked to dinner and came back to enjoy the fireplace and the ocean sounds in our room.
The breakfast was FABULOUS! Plenty of choices, delicious coffee, and the price was right as it was included with our room.
We will not stay anywhere else on beautiful Moonstone Beach - and look forward to a return visit!

we had a great time at the fog catcher. i think the location is the best on moonstone. all of our needs were met with flying colors. the room was oversize with a great balcony a stone's throw from the water. great view and surf sounds. we ate right on moonstone, from the hotel staff recommendations, all excellent. there are a lot of hotel properties on moonstone beach. this would be my recommendation every time. thank you

Room Tip: we were in room 329..the only one with a balcony. well worth it. huge room. right on water.

Stayed in the FogCatcher Inn in June for one night as part of our 3 week trip to California. On arrival, met with friendly and helpful staff. Room was great with an Ocean view. Breakfast was really good. Could not fault this hotel and would highly recommend it. Only downside, after a 20 minute walk along the boardwalk into Cambria to find a nice place to eat, found that everyplace was closing up at 8p.m. (Sleepy Hollow). Returned at speed and just made it to the Moonstone Grill, 5 mins walk from hotel, nice spot. Overall, would stay again without hesitation.
