Great relaxing stay

Posted May 18, 2015
Pros: Location right across the street from the seashore
Cons: Wish we could have stayed longer
Location: Hearst Castle, Cambria, Moro Bay, nice boardwalk along the shoreline.
Hotel is in a beautiful location on Moonstone Beach. Staff checked us in quickly. Room was spacious, clean and fireplace started right up. Our bed was comfortable . Very quiet at night. Breakfast was very filling with a choice of eggs, potatoes, sausage, waffles, pastries, fruit and beverages. Would highly recommend.

Pleasant oceanside getaway.

Posted May 1, 2015
Pros: See above.
Cons: Breakfast buffet, room decor, see above.
Location: See above.
Spent two nights at the Fgcatcher Inn on a girls' getaway. First visit to Cambria. Our garden-view room was spacious and clean and the beds were comfortable. Gas fireplace is a nice touch and the bathroom, while small, was adequate for two travelers. However the rooms lack a certain charm that one associates with a bed and breakfast inn. It was rather spare. Could have used a plant and a few more pictures on the walls. The decor was more like a Best Western type hotel. The only real negative was the breakfast setup: a buffet with plastic utensils and paper plates. The food was fine and included eggs, sausages, waffles as well as cereals and pastries, but the room is overcrowded, accordingly difficult to navigate, and the paper plates and plastic forks are a turnoff. At the rates charged they could use flatware and real plates. Cambria village is full of interesting shops and restaurants and the ocean is right across the street from the Inn.

Thank you for your feedback and comments. I am sorry you were disappointed with the bio-degradable utensils and plates. Due to our water shortage and drought we had to make tough decisions on how to cut back on water usage with the least impact on guests! Again I apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused and do hope you will return to the FogCatcher Inn in the not too distant future! Kind Regards, Karen Maraschiello, General Manager

Facilities have been recently remodeled and have splendid ambiance. Great location on the ocean and across Moonstone Drive and the walkway and beach. The sound of the surf is very soothing. Great full breakfast included.

Went on a "girl trip," to do some wine tasting . My friend's first time EVER, beyond the Santa Barbarbra beaches, and she was equally impressed.

Cute hotel right across the street from the beach.

Posted Apr 12, 2015
Loved the feel of the hotel. Mellow yellow walls with ivy growing on them. Reminded me of the English countryside. Super friendly check in with yummy cookies. Loved the fireplace all night. Comfy bed and pillows. Very clean inside room. Loved the body wash and the lotion. Breakfast was busy but had plenty of seating inside and out. I didn't see any hot eggs or bacon. They had cereal, muffins, toast, bagels, hard boiled eggs sliced which made it easier to salt and eat. They offered coffee, 3 types of juice, oat meal and two waffle makers. Always a line but yummy. I really enjoyed walking across the street to walk along the boardwalk along the edge of the beach. Saw a great sunset! I will stay here again on my next trip to Cambria.

Quaint exterior - spartan interior

Posted Apr 3, 2015
Pros: Location across from ocean. Quaint exterior design.
Cons: see above
Location: Love the location near Cambria, and highway 1.
Surprised by the lack of interior design. Parking was crowded. Had to park across the street. Lovely setting and exterior design. Overcrowded breakfast room.

Fabulous Stay

Pros: Clean and convenient to beach.

Wonderfully updated. Nice fireplace in room. Essential microwave, coffee and mini fridge in room. Walk across road to boardwalk and then down to beautiful Moonstone beach. Staff super friendly and helpful for suggesting restaurants. Super clean. Comfortable bedding. Quiet! Basic, but good selection for breakfast.
