“excellent location and rooms”
Reviewed 12 August 2010

We had the master bedroom which was large and airy, the decoration cosy. We had no problems with the room. The hotel is located literally just across the road from moonstone beach and a 10 minute drive to Cambria which was brilliant. It is also in walking distance to restaurants.

Worst thing - At Breakfast there was lots to choose from but could have done with more healthy choices.

Best thing- The pools were fantastic - there is a normal pool and a smaller hot tub, both of which were very well maintained.

One night was just not enough!! The room was absolutely delightful, it pulled you in and you wanted to just relax, turn on the fireplace, and look out at the beach and chill....
It had so many nice amenities; spacious rooms, dressing area, pull-down shades along w/drapes, beautifully decorated... right by the beach. A charming little village, would be a perfect 2-3 day stay.

We spent 1 night at the FogCatcher with our teenage sun. Moonstone Beach is beautiful! The inn is on Moonstone Rd which is a quiet road that runs parallel to Rt 1. The beach is just across the street from a row of several hotels and FogCatcher is one of those places. We kept our window open at night to hear the surf and it was dead quiet outside. Our room was larger than most with 2 Q beds. There's a separate area outside the bathroom that has a fridge and microwave and coffeemaker. A lovely, clean room with comfy beds. The landscaping around the inn is very pretty, and there are several benches and even a couple little tables outside. Breakfast was served in a room across from our room. It was the best breakfast of our trip! The inn offered real plates and silverware and cups. Nice not to eat off of paper. The food offerings were waffles, eggs, bacon, bagels and pastries, cereal, yogurt, etc. Very nice!

My son and I used the small pool and the hot tub. It was quite cool in Cambria, but the pool was really warm! It was a great way to relax at the end of the day.

Cambria has many restaurants. We ended up getting food at Soto's Deli. They had the usual deli stuff, plus plates of food from a neighboring restaurant. Yummy stuff. We loved Cambria.

We stayed at the Fogcatcher Inn for 2 nights in August. We LOVED the location. Right across the road from Moonstone beach, which was simply picture perfect. The room was cozy, with it's fireplace which we used as it was VERY cool for August. The room was very clean. The breakfast in the morning was very nice. Thomas at the front desk was very helpful, recommending places to dine and things to see/do. We used this location for going to see Hearst Castle, which is only 10 minutes up the road. This is a FAR better area to stay in than up in San Simeon. Be on the lookout for the Hearst Ranch Zebras on the way to Hearst Castle!!!

Based on the pictures I booked one of the nicer rooms at the fogcatcher. Did not realize there is a road between the hotel and the beach. Opened the windows to hear the ocean, mostly heard cars and RVs. In the morning you get a city trolley and bus. Not very relaxing. Room could use some updating, everthing was a little worn out.

We loved this hotel and Cambria - which we knew nothing about. Extraordinarily beautiful beach and surrounding scenery. Hotel is lovely - spacious rooms, fireplaces, nice bathrooms.
Pool is very clean and in a protected spot with nice view down to the sea. Breakfast was ok.
Overall a great destination - we would have stayed longer if we had known how much we would like it!

What a phenomenal place, we just loved it. We arrived at 3:00pm and checked in, the check-in process was flawless and the gentleman that checked us in was very friendly and informative. We then went to our room and was so pleasantly surprised. The rooms were spacious and yet cozy, they were more like little cottages. Beds were comfortable and rooms were very clean. We went for a walk to the beach which was literally right across the street, spent time with the seals and in the tide pools. just an amazing experience. Would recommend this hotel to anyone, stayed in a lot of hotels around the world and something about fog catcher just made me fall in love with it. One more point, I booked two rooms and the wonderful general manager even called me to confirm that it was correct, you can tell that the hotel is great just by the GM. It was the best 40th anyone could wish for, living in Vegas I will definitely make to trip again and again.
