“Great hotel on scenic Moonstone Beach!”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

I have been to Cambria/Moonstone Beach several times. This is the first time we stayed at The Fogcatcher Inn. The location could not be any better. Centrally located on Moonstone Beach. Most rooms have dime ocean views. A nice touch is that the rooms have fireplaces. The breakfast (included) is one of the best I've had. It includes waffles, assorted muffins and pastries, oatmeal great coffee.

The rooms are a bit small but clean. Not a whole lot of space for vanity items.

Staff very friendly and accommodating.

Nice room with a gas fire, water and apples were available in the reception, they recommended a great restaurant for us and made a reservation. Hotel right on the beach, free parking and wifi. Breakfast was brilliant. Loved this place and will be back. Have already recommended it to my friends.

We have stayed at the Fog Catcher Inn may times, and I have always had a wonderful experience. Take the opportunity to find out for yourself, what personal service and hospitality is all about. Sort of like, going back in time.

1 night last minute booking, prior to Hearst Castle visit (6 miles away). Clean, comfortable, right on beach, very friendly, efficient and good service from the team there. Breakfast was a real scrum, so many people in a relatively small room, shows it must be a popular hotel, food choice good though. Certainly, the other hotels on this beachfront strip looked nothing like as busy. Possible the hotel has been incentivized to recommend Madeline's in Cambria for dinner, suggest they review this. Several other much better options in town. All in all,excellent value.

Room Tip: We had room 103, centrally located and away from any road noise.

We arrived late (around 9PM) without having stopped for dinner. Right away the representative behind the desk called around to every restaurant in Cambria to see if they were still open so we could grab a bite to eat. Our room was GORGEOUS! Ocean view with a fireplace. We could hear the waves crashing against the shore all night. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. Everything was very clean and everyone there was very friendly. We only stayed one night - I wish it was longer!

We stayed for 2 nights and were so pleased. We had a wonderful room with a cathedral ceiling,
fire place and a large balcony opening to a perfect ocean view. FogCatcher Inn is a great surprise.
The breakfast was terrific! The staff was very friendly, and helpful.
I definitely will stay there again!

We recently spent 2 nights at the FogCatcher Inn in Cambria. Our room, 401, was very spacious and very quiet. Breakfast was delicious: scrambled eggs, country fried potatoes, and sausage. The sausage was the best ever! There were lots of choices of muffins and other breads. I sampled several, all of which were delicious. Desk staff was super efficient and very friendly.

Room Tip: Room 401 is a deluxe garden suite, one of three deluxe garden suites.
