With so many hotels/B&Bs to chose from in the area it can be a bit of a crap shoot. Well, luck was definitely on our side with our choice of the FogCatcher Inn. Great room, great value, great staff, great location, great breakfast...all around great. We will definitely return. Highly recommended!

Booked this Inn for an overnight stop before Hearst Castle. Was guided by previous reviews on Trip Advisor. What an excellent property. We needed a room that could accommodate 2 adults and 2 teenagers. We booked two queen room, which was more than adequate as we were concerned with space regarding our luggage, but there was ample and we were...

Our original plan was to go camping in Big Sur, but due to weather (30-70% rain all weekend). My husband and I decided to check-in instead. After doing some research, Fogcatcher Inn was the best choice. A charming pet-friendly inn with all the amenities (including full breakfast service) and a few steps to the beach! It was a treat to...

This was our first stay with this hotel. And I have to say it was a great experience. The staff was very helpful and accommodating with our needs and request. The rooms are very clean. They have a fresh full breakfast the next morning also.

Cambria and the California coast is breathtaking. Having read the reviews of other travelers and the rating we booked an ocean facing room. Room 121.

My wife and I spent two nights at the Fog Catcher Inn in Cambria in late December, 2013. The accommodations were more than adequate, and we really liked the fireplace, which provided the gas heat for our room. We paid extra for a view of the surf and ocean across the street. This view, which includes a view of the...

The room was dark, dreary, and needed new furniture ten years ago. It was painted a bland color and the ceiling was high so I felt like I was in a barn the whole time. The fire place was cute and easy to use by the touch of the thermostat. It was the only source of heat in the room...
