Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


This boutique oceanfront hotel beams with coastal charm, complete with rooms resembling charming beach cottages (down to the driftwood-inspired headboards). With cozy fireplaces, convenient Keurig coffeemakers and decadent Molton Brown bath products laid out along pristine white sinks, the FogCatcher Inn entices guests to stop in Cambria, just off of scenic Highway 1. 

Three words sum up the FogCatcher Inn: calm, cool and complimentary. Perks include everything from free Wi-Fi to hot buffet breakfasts and coffee, tea and cookies served in the lobby. After a stroll along Moonstone Beach collecting colorful pebbles, catch the sun setting at the hotel while relaxing in the heated pool or Jacuzzi.

The quaint town of Cambria is divided into the older “east village” (dotted with 1870s Victorian mansions) and the newer “west village” (donned with modern houses). Stroll the streets of either and take on a culinary quest or try your hand at antiquing.

In under a 15-minute drive, find Hearst Castle (the opulent estate of late newspaper titan William Randolph Hearst), San Simeon State Park (over 3,400 scenic acres of beach and wetlands) and Piedras Blancas Elephant Seal Rookery (a haven for unique marine mammals).
