Cambria turned into a very nice surprise, and the Fogcatcher made that happen. This hotel is very popular by the number of people we met there. Very cosy rooms and a lovely breakfast. The beach is right across the street which we loved. The sunset was amazing. Would love to come back.

My wife and I have been staying at the Fog Catcher every year for six years now. We first stayed at the Fog Catcher for part of our honey moon and now we go back for each and every anniversary. Others have tried to get us to stay elsewhere on Moonstone Beach but we love the Fog Catcher. The location...

My two cousins and I were on a tour up the coast and couldn't find a place in Paso Robles. One cousin brother remembered staying at the FogCatcher years ago and suggested we try it. It was marvelous: Katherine both on the phone and at the front desk was the most efficient and pleasant check-in person; the rooms were spacious,...

Everyone was gracious and friendly from check-in to check-out. We got a room with two double beds which was large and clean. Breakfast was served from 7-10 and was varied and plentiful. This was a family gathering from three states, and we talked past ten with no one appearing to hurry us along. Could have asked for nothing better!

Our stay was fabulous! The front desk people gave great information about the hotel and about the area. The room was neat, clean and quiet. We were upgraded to an ocean-facing room upon arrival! In front of the hotel is a one mile boardwalk with beautiful ocean views.

Our accommodations exceeded our expectations. The staff was pleasant and efficient. The breakfast was excellent and the coffee first rate. I will return in the future and recommend this establishment for those dog lovers who are looking to experience the California coast.

Our stay at the FogCatcher Inn was lovely! We had our two children (ages 5 and 10), and everyone was thrilled with the inn from the start (the cookies upon check-in were a bonus). It was cold and rainy, so we didn't take advantage of the pool, but everything else was great. The fireplace in the room kept us nice...

We drove up Highway 1 between LA and San Francisco. We decided to stay at the FogCatcher Inn because they had a family suite to serve the five of us. The star of the hotel is the view of Moonstone Beach and the ocean. The decor of the family suite is very dated, and the parking especially for a minivan...

I've been coming to Cambria for vacation since I was a kid. This time I came with my family so we could beachcomb and do some of the other Hearst Castle tours. The Fog Catcher in was great and the cookies at check in are a nice touch. The location is perfect, we will definitely stay here in the future.
