My husband and I have lived in the southern part of San Luis Obispo County for 13 years. We got away two weeks ago for three amazing days and nights in Cambria. Fogcatcher is right on Moonstone Beach Drive, with onlya small two-lane road between the hotel and the ocean. You can fall asleep at night with the sound of...

What better way to split up a long drive from San Francisco to Santa Barbara than a night here at the FogCatcher Inn and Cambria. Thank you for your review and we hope you get a chance to stay a little longer on your next visit. James Davison General Manager FogCatcher Inn

Clean, roomy, perfect location, nice staff, decent hot breakfast, adorable atmosphere throughout the grounds, a lot of good restaurants and shopping nearby. No complaints, would go there again. The boardwalk across the street is wonderful for a stroll morning or night.

In driving up Highway 1, there are a plethora of places to stay. We stumbled on the FogCatcher Inn by chance - but loved our one night here. Probably the warmest welcome I have ever received at a reception desk was from Katherine. Akin to Mum welcoming her kids back from a long days hike, we were greeted with home...

You are correct, the ocean breaking on the shore directly across the street from the FogCatcher Inn makes the best lullaby. I can not think of a better way relax and get some sleep than having the window open a bit and letting the sounds of nature lull you to sleep. Thank you for your review. We hope to see...

Our family of 5 stayed in their well appointed, comfortable and cozy Family Suite. It's a lovely Oceanside Inn. Friendly staff. Clean and quaint. We walked across to the beach a few times...played in surf and sand and fed the squirrels. I would rec this inn to all. Wished we stayed more than a night.

Glad you had an "amazing" stay with us. The partial ocean view rooms are wonderfully roomy spaces that still have a great view of the water. Nothing beats a cozy fireplace and a view of the surf hitting Moonstone Beach. Thank you for your review. We can't wait to see you again. James Davison General Manager FogCatcher Inn
