“Our favorite getaway......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2012

My wife and I discovered this Inn by happenstance some years ago. We had family coming from England and wanted to stay along the beach in Cambria. We made a reservation and as we drove up to the check-in the Brits made a comment - nicely done "grasshopper" a quote of a sort from the Kung Fu series. At the time I did not realize just how correct was that quote.

Cambria and the Fog Catcher became my wife's favorite getaway. We've been back many times and will continue to do so. The staff is outstanding, the rooms likewise, the care and maintenance of the grounds immaculate. The breakfasts are more than sufficient to satisfy. The coffee quite good, the salsa, by the way, I highly recomment you add it onto your scrambled eggs, a bit of spice to it, but not overpowering. The gathering in the breakfast room is congenial, I always get to talking with one or more of the folks. My sister-in-law, one of the Brits who went with us, while sitting on the outside deck of Moonstone Grill (a restaurant down the street from the Fog Catcher) blurted out "I'm not leaving"... We all chuckled. But she repeated it more than once. Suffice it to say. It's one very fantastic place, location to take a "getaway"..

Room Tip: If you are into staying in your room then an ocean view might be nice. However it is rather more ex...

My daughter and I were totally taken with the Inn. We reserved an Ocean front room with two queen beds. It wasn't advertised on the website but by calling and requesting we were able to arrange. Next time I'd probably try to reserve a room with a porch too, I'm not how charming the rooms in the back were. The staff were hospitable and helpful. Room was very clean and the fire-place was a nice touch. We both enjoyed the full breakfast. Very substantial and very good.

Room Tip: Choose room with a view, and even a veranda/porch to enjoy the view.

We loved this spot! Even my husband, who is very hard to please, always mentions this place as one of his favourites of our family holiday. Breakfast was modest, served in plastic bowls etc, but still ok. Beds were very comfortable and the location was so peaceful. I loved the walk in the morning along the foreshore.... and we had a great meal at the pub just a couple of steps down the road. I would whole-heartedly recommend this place if you are stopping over to see the castles as a family like we were.

We have had our family reunion here for the past 18 years. There is nothing bad to say about this Hotel. It just gets better every year. The staff are friendly. The rooms are clean. The breakfast is excellent. The location on the beach is outstanding. The sunsets are gorgeous.

Just a mile from town of Cambria.and ten minutes from Hearst Castle.

Room Tip: Pick an ocean front room for romantic moments on the deck viewing the sunsets. For families pick th...

The staff were very welcoming and sincere which was a definite plus. The location is divine and very relaxing. The breakfast room was very attractive and the food exceptionally good. The room was clean and nicely decorated and included free bottles of water. The reception area was stocked with coffee and fruit. Everything gave the impression that The Fogcatcher Inn was delighted to have you as a guest. We would definitely choose to stay there if we return to Cambria for a holiday.

Room Tip: Did not see the fitness center so cannot rate. I only saw my room so cannot compare with others.

The staff , the views, It's all top rate. That morning meal is just great ! The people working there couldn't be friendlier . It is comfortable and clean. Sunsets are the best and the walks on the boardwalk are some of the best in California.

Room Tip: Just pick one you will love them all..
