Stayed here at the beginning of our spring break in April and brought our dog along. The location is great as the beach is right across the street. Room had a microwave and mini refrigerator (fridge was iced up in the back so it wasn't really cold - this happens to many of these types of units). Room for pets...

Coming towards the end of our tour, we stayed here for two nights, before heading on to LA. The Inn was very welcoming, the staff extremely friendly and helpful. We had a garden room, which was really cosy with a fire, comfortable and clean. The pool was heated, and well maintained. Just across the road is the boardwalk which runs...

We took our family to the Fogcatcher Inn on our way up to Northern Cal. It was such a cute place with many great qualities. Let me just say the view of the ocean across the street is breathtaking. Next, our room was extremely clean and the fireplace was a very nice touch. And, of course, my kids were in...

The hotel is clean and kind. I called to see if we could get one night for a quick getaway from the kids. Karen gave us a king size ocean view room for one night. Huge breakfast buffet in the morning saves youn $40 on breakfast with no sacrifice.

We stayed at the Fogcatcher whilst travelling north on Route 1. Perfect location just across the road from a beautiful beach with a .walkway leading to a headland from which we and others like us watched the sun go down.

When I found out that my favorite place in Cambria was sold out I checked reviews on the other hotels in the area and decided on the Fogcatcher. I wasn't a complete bust, but I doubt I'll stay there again. Upon entering the room after dinner, my wife remarked that it smelled like pee. We complained to the front desk...

Decent property...room adequate...excellent location....great beach access....but minimal customer service.
