“Very Nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

I stayed here with my family in March 9th the place was very very nice. The staff was excellent, the room was great with a nice fireplace and the ocean across the street. They have an excellent breakfast and if you want there is a place to eat diner a short distance away. I would recomend this Hotel to anyone. The price was excellent.

Room Tip: I stayed in the garden room

Coming towards the end of our tour, we stayed here for two nights, before heading on to LA.
The Inn was very welcoming, the staff extremely friendly and helpful. We had a garden room, which was really cosy with a fire, comfortable and clean. The pool was heated, and well maintained. Just across the road is the boardwalk which runs along the coastline, which was quite incredible with numerous birds and animals. Our grandchild was extremely excited seeing the sea otter eating a crab, and the humming birds. Would we stay again - most definitely.

We took our family to the Fogcatcher Inn on our way up to Northern Cal. It was such a cute place with many great qualities. Let me just say the view of the ocean across the street is breathtaking. Next, our room was extremely clean and the fireplace was a very nice touch. And, of course, my kids were in heaven because the pool was heated to 83 degrees and they were in heaven that they were able to swim in April and not worry about freezing! I would highly recommend this Inn not only because it is adorable and has many great qualities, but it also has great and friendly staff members who were very attentive to our needs and a yummy breakfast included in the price. So, if you think it is pricey, just remember, you will save money by not having to find a restaurant to eat breakfast. We had bacon, sausage and eggs, and of course the kids loved making their own waffles. Thank you Fogcatcher Inn for being so great!
We have also stayed at the Blue Dolphin, however, they do not allow kids, so we will not be staying there ever again

The hotel is clean and kind. I called to see if we could get one night for a quick getaway from the kids. Karen gave us a king size ocean view room for one night. Huge breakfast buffet in the morning saves youn $40 on breakfast with no sacrifice.

FogCatcher was a unique Inn with friendly staff and a wonderful breakfast! We loved the large room and the location on the beach. As we checked out we talked with the staff about their planned renovations for this fall (?) which will make a nice stay even nicer. We enjoyed it as is, liking the fact that it has it's own style and doesn't look like just another motel.

We stayed at the Fogcatcher whilst travelling north on Route 1. Perfect location just across the road from a beautiful beach with a .walkway leading to a headland from which we and others like us watched the sun go down. Very good accommodation, warm welcome, good full breakfast. The heated pool and whirlpool were unexpected pleasures. Cambria itself is a sweet little place and not widely known, it would seem. I have no doubt we will return and spend more time there before long. Thank you Fogcatcher.

The route traveling north on Highway 1 is one of the most scenic drives on all the West Coast. We are pleased you made us a part of your adventure. Thank you for your review and we look forward to seeing you on your way back south on Highway 1 through Big Sur.

When I found out that my favorite place in Cambria was sold out I checked reviews on the other hotels in the area and decided on the Fogcatcher. I wasn't a complete bust, but I doubt I'll stay there again. Upon entering the room after dinner, my wife remarked that it smelled like pee. We complained to the front desk clerk and she gave us a bottle of Febreze and said that she would send someone to check it out. Someone never came. The room itself was nice, but the bed was marginal, and the pillows were slightly hard. On the plus side, we enjoyed the free breakfast that included hot entrees, and when we spoke to the manager about the urine smell he was very apologetic and compensated us fairly. Also, as we were leaving after check out, we saw a maintenance person going in with a carpet cleaner, so he took our complaint seriously, something that the front desk people hadn't done.

Thank you for taking time to review us. We appreciate all our guest comments and feedback. I apologize for the odor in your room. Once this came to our attention, we had maintenance get into the room as soon as they arrived to deep clean the room. We are very sorry for any inconvenience. I would love the opportunity to speak with you directly, please feel free to reach out to me. Thank you.
