    Historical Traveler Reviews FogCatcher Inn Cambria

    Nice Place!


    FogCatcher Inn, Moonstone Beach was very accomodating. Nice Room, Nice Fireplace and cordial help. Dinner comp at Cambria Pines Lodge was also nice...good food, good service... Nice Place to stay, would do it again !



    This place is excellent! Outstanding compared to the other hotels that we've stayed in . The rooms are clean, cozy and quiet which made us feel at home. The breakfast was excellent..which reminds me of Europe. Staff are very accomodating, I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone. In fact some of my friend already made the reservations to check it out.. Good place to stay in Cambria..



    I would not recommend for a family stay, there is no air conditioning, We didn't feel safe leaving the windows open so the room was very stuffy. The beds were not comfortable but that didn't sound likeit bothered the couple next door to us, it sounded like they realllly had a good time, I'm glad the kidswere sleeping by then. The hot tub and pool were very nice and well kept. but the local kids in cambria seem to know the management doesn't care who uses them, we sat by the hot tub for 1/2 hour waiting to use the hot tub. Sorry but for the money maybe I would stay in another town with more reasonable rates this place is part of a large company that seems to own most of the hotels and other tourist traps in town.

    Central California Secret


    I can't recommend the Fog Catcher more highly! It is located right above beautiful Moonstone State Beach, and its setting is perfect for anyone seeking a time away from the city hustle and bustle, and stresses of life. The facilities are wonderful, very comfortable, and the staff are very supportive of your experience being all you wanted it to be. Cambria and the Central California coast is truly a place that can bring healing and rejuvenation to the weary, and the Fog Catcher Inn adds all the more to the time you'll spend. It is a bit pricy, especially in the high seasons, but they have great off season offers. Perhaps you'll be like my family and make the Fog Catcher at least an annual stopping place out of your life's journey, and share enjoying our Central California Secret!

    Lovely, Charming English Cottage by the sea


    I have stayed at this hotal and its sister hotels every time I have the good fortune to be in Cambria. The place is lovely. The breakfast room bright and cheery and the ocean across the Street divine!

    The Best of Both Worlds


    My wife and I are frequent travelers. I'm a salesman. Book me into a chain hotel. My wife owns a small wine shop. Give her a B&B or an inn. The best of both worlds is the Fog Catcher Inn. Laid out like a motel, a shake style roof and amazing gardens give the place the feeling of an inn. I booked the least expensive room with a king bed for a Sunday night in mid-January. The location of our room worried me a bit, being way back in the corner of the property. But what a pleasant surprise. A king bed with an inviting comforter. A gas fireplace. A full bath. A separate area for hanging our items included a refrigerator with beverages and a coffee pot. Add to this a large well heated spa (and pool), the "expanded" continental breakfast which included scambled eggs, and glorious Moonstone Beach. A great place to stay!

    Fog Catcher Inn -- Charming and comfy!!


    The Fog Catcher Inn is so lovely -- comfortable and affordable -- we'll be back :)

    Special attention to comfort with fireplaces and down comforters. The decor is charming and the rooms are beautiful -- Fridges fully stocked, coffee makers, hair dryers and iron/ironing boards in rooms.

    Awesome full breakfast is provided in the Breakfast Room. Eggs, fresh fruits, assorted breads and baked goods, yogurts, oatmeal bar, cereals, fresh juices, milk, coffee, tea.

    Serve yourself and sit in a warm and friendly dining room provided for guests. You won't go away hungry with the nice selections.

    Sleep to peaceful sound of the waves and walk across the street to the highlands path above the tidepools.

    Appreciate the cleaning supplies for the car windows too -- Thanks!

    English garden setting next to the sea


    My spouse and I have stayed here twice now, and both times we've stayed in charmingl, well-maintained ocean-view rooms. (If you don't want to pay as much for the ocean view, all the other rooms have beautiful views of the enchanting English-style gardens surrounding the inn.) The ocean is just right across the street, and so at night we left the window open a few inches so that we could fall asleep listening to the waves crashing on the beach. That in itself was worth the extra price of the room! The rooms (we peeked at several others) are large and tastefully decorated with french provincial and toile fabrics, bathrooms are immaculate and modern, and the staff couldn't be nicer and more accomodating. The free breakfast is more than just the usual danish and juice-- scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, and cereals are available.. If you're a garden lover, make sure you tour the whole place, sit on the view benches surrounded by brick and stone paths, and check out all the lovely roses growing in the back.

    Fogcatcher Inn in Cambria - I Loved it!


    I loved every minute of my stay at the Fogcatcher Inn on Moonstone Beach. I was fortunate to have a ocean-facing room, which although pricey, was worth it. I found the staff very friendly and helpful. My room was immaculately maintained, as is all the property. The complimentary breakfast in the lovely little breakfast room was such a nice touch, and it was not the continental type, but a full meal. I chose the Fogcatcher at random from descriptions on its webpage and unlike a lot of places,I found it to be as it was advertised. I am eagerly looking forward to my next stay there. As you can tell from my review, I highly recommend this lovely place by the sea. It's the perfect,quiet get-away location.

    Loved the fog catcher


    the inn is directly across the street from the ocean and we had an awesome view of it from the room we stayed in. our room was clean and cozy and the bathrooms were immaculate. Cambria was beautiful and the fog catcher was the perfect place to stay.

    ... the stay was really quite refreshing. Afterwards we crossed the road to the little headland opposite to look out for sea otters after the three we'd seen yesterday. And there were three. So six seal-like sea otters she did see, swimming in the sea. After topping up the car with fuel, because it was cheaper than further south we were told, we set off down the coast. The Seventeen Mile Drive south of us was recommended so we took it. It cost ten dollars and we only did the ...

    The Quality Inn boasted a Spa which was right by our room, almost like a private one just for us.
    Actually it is doubtful whether both of us could have fitted into it at the same time, as it was miniscule. Being out of action anyway, we couldn't put it to the test, but how a hotel that large provides something so small is beyond me.

    Their breakfast room was tiny too. It had maybe 5 small tables in it?
    The hotel has hundreds of rooms! Maybe this is a ...

    ... at noon.

    We drove back to Avila beach and put our canoe in and paddled right up to the sea lions…well, up to a safe distance of 15 feet or more that is. Dave brought his gopro out so we could be heroes, j/k, and snapped some pics and videos of those fussy little things. Then we canoed over to a secluded beach, but it was windy and chilly so we didn’t stay long at all.

    We went to the ocean front shops in Avila and got ...

    ... tired, crashed out. I later went for a walk and saw a woman standing quite still. As I came back she had gone off but a car came passed asking about her as she was apparently very distraught. It must have been her screaming - I thought it was children. Later she stood by the roadside edge. I was going to alert the motel but by then she'd gone. We discussed our LA plans at the Sunset Grill before heading off to bed. We were all tired I ...
