Great location and the rooms are really nice. If you can get one, the Ocean view rooms are great. We got lucky. The breakfast is really good too. I can't wait to go back.

My husband and I stayed here with another couple in early February. It was very relaxing and the staff are top notch! The inn is not a new property, but the area is very well maintained and the rooms have been updated beautifully. Jane was wonderful to deal with upon check in. She was very helpful in reviewing our Hearst castle package and getting our reservations for dinner at Madeline's. Danielle, is extremely friendly and gave us great recommendations for places to eat in Cambria as well. We made a late evening visit to the lobby for hot chocolate and apple cider. Danielle even warmed up more hot water for hot chocolate and gave us whipped cream to top it off.The weather was rainy the entire time we stayed, and we loved sitting in the hot tub with gental rain falling. There is a wonderful boardwalk just in front of the hotel to walk along the beach. We usually book hotels with continental breakfast included and this was way beyond any hotel we have ever stayed at. Scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles and a wonderful selection of pastries. The rooms are spotless and the bed linens are wonderful. We booked an ocean view room on the second floor and it has a fantastic view. The fireplace provides a very romantic addition to this beachview room. We are from the Midwest, and although we felt the rooms were quite expensive (much about California is), the staff at the Fogcatcher Inn made this stay, one of the best we have ever had on a vacation.

We had a beautiful room. Great hotel across from the beach, Cambria is a nice getaway for eating, wine tasting, beach. Fun shopping too!. Dog bed comes with room, we were happy to spend the $25. fee to have our dog with us.
Women ask for conditioner! I dont like it when hotels offer conditioning shampoo.....just does not work. She told me they have it if you ask.... but for me that was too late.

Room Tip: We did not have a view room, but still saw the ocean as soon as we stepped out the door.

We stayed in Cambria at moonstone beach area. there are quite a few hotels which are probably very nice but we chose the fog catcher inn over others because we had stayed there @ 5 years ago. It was better than we remembered. Staff was excellent, fireplace in the room was a really nice touch for a very nicely appointed room, and the boardwalk across the street provided a beautiful sunset.

I would say it's a can't miss for a visit to the area (Elephant seals just a couple miles away)

Room Tip: Don't know of any bad rooms!

Asha and I got a chance to escape for a weekend to celebrate her birthday at Moonstone Beach in early February. The sunsets were amazing and the weather was surprisingly good. Our first night at FogCatcher Inn, the fireplace stopped working—major bummer since it's a main attraction in the suite—and the hotel staff jumped right on fixing the problem. They even discounted the first night for the inconvenience. You can't argue with great service like that!
