Recent guest reviews

This was our 6th visit and the buildings are beginning to show their age. During our stay we experienced a three hour period one day without water due to a leaky pipe. The rooms have been remodeled and are clean but the facilities are showing their age. The breakfast was hot but the same every day. The staff are always great, very helpful and personable. The 0ffice has complimentary fresh baked cookies available every afternoon.

Very cozy and cute! Loved the location! We were right in front of Moonstone Beach which made for beautiful sunsets. It was exactly what we needed for a relaxing hiday weekend.

Got two rooms 701 and 702 702 has a strong musty smell like one coming from bathroom sink. toom 701 was good

Nice clean hotel but overpriced. Average breakfast - not much variety.

Our family of four stayed here for two days and enjoyed walking but the ocean and walking to nearby restaurants. Clean and cozy and staff was very friendly!

The Fogcatcher was a little misrepresented in the promo pictures. Garden view overlooked the 5 foot swath of grass and flowers between the windows and the parking lot and not a balcony in sight. The room was small, but just roomy enough for two. The price far exceeded the accommodations. Proximity to the beach was a plus. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Nice Place to stay, staff very friendly, and great view in the morning. Would stay again next time to Cambria

Well, on a Valentine's Day stay, been wanting to stay knowing that rates were high so we waited the day after, the room was beautiful, clean, breakfast was awesome. Then the clincher, check out following day @ 11:00. right, we slept with windows opened to hear the ocean waves beautiful right?..No, well you would think if staff was going to start cleaning windows, it would be once we left, imagine windows already opened. Well the window cleaning guy took of the screen and just started cleaning the window, low and behold I come out of the shower to find this guy just cleaning the windows like nothing. I was furious and applauded. Can you image if me and boyfriend were doing something else. I made it a point to inform the front desk when dropping off keys. Not sure if we will stay there again.

A perfect location to rest and relax and getaway from it all. The scenery is un-beatable. The hotel is newly remodeled, breakfast is delicious, and staff very helpful.

Short stay with my husband, but had to leave due to his illness.

Staff was awesome Very nice stay Great breakfast. Clean room

I was lucky to book the hotel faces the ocean, the garden room are right next to CA-1. I guess it will be noisy at night. The room is very comfortable with two queen beds with multiple windows facing the beach. The only complaint I have is your phone won't receive any signal if you use AT&T. The free wifi helps a lot for the caveat.

Nice hotel in a beautiful spot. We especially love the proximity to a beach path and easy walk to great restaurants on Moonstone Drive and in downtown Cambia.

Fog catcher is always a wonderful experience. Location, accommondations and staff are the best.

Perfect location with clean, average rooms. nice spot for a couple get away.

Great location, a few steps from the beach. This hotel needs some improvements. The room we stayed in was dated, and unlike some of the other hotels nearby, there's no shared balcony where you can view the ocean. They have a pool, a hot tub, and a firepit. Breakfast was good, best thing about the hotel.

The staff were very friendly and accommodating as if we were family. My friend accidentally spilled her coffee on the comforter during the dinner break of the cleanning staff. The desk clerk hauled the new comforter herself! She had been super busy when we arrived and did not appear under any duress and handled all the customers. Location amazing, walked on the beach so beautiful! We took advantage of the heated pool and hot tub and outdoor fireplace. This place had a little more personality than the other hotels in the vicinity. Going back!

Excellent service from staff, friendly, pleasant, and knowledgeable. Room clean and with coffee, microwave, and mini-frig. Excellent location on Moonstone Beach. Sadly, it was so foggy we couldn't see the water from the beach! Some aspects of the room give that "updated Best Western feel", not as glamorous as the price might suggest.

From the moment we arrived, the hotel staff was warm, inviting, and offered excellent hospitality. They made our dinner reservations and gave us information on local attractions. The local was outstanding as the hotel is directly across the street from the beach boardwalk. The hotel was central along the strip where one could walk to restaurants or look for shells along Moonstone Beach. Each morning a full sized breakfast awaits, and in the evening there is a beautiful outdoor fireplace with ocean view. Our family will be going back soon!
