Loved this hotel. Friendly staff. Delicious cookies upon check in. Beautiful setting. Across from the beach. Very nice room with fireplace. Wish we could have stayed longer. Perfect spot. Close to Hearst Castle.

Great hotel and while a little more expensive than some, the quality, care and treatment as well as careful amenities are worth it. They switched to biodegradable plates in the breakfast room this year and it makes a big difference. Maybe not as classy but works just as well and better for the environment. We go once a year for...

We arrived to be greeted by friendly staff, who informed us of a free upgrade to ocean view suite, which was very cosy especially with the fire place. Some good recommendations from the staff meant a nice meal that evening at the steak house bar and grill - make sure you head to the far end of town. A peaceful...

We chose this place as we only had one night to stop on our long drive down the coast. The setting is lovely, unfortunately we didn't have an ocean view room, but the ocean is right across the road so go dip your toes instead! :) The pool area was nice, the pool was lovely and warm and the spa...

Just left our 2 bedroom ocean view room. The fold out bed was so comfortable that I slept all night and never woke up once until morning. Always look forward to coming back. And the breakfasts are the best on Moonstone Beach.

We spent one night at Fogcatcher Inn. We didn't really have much of a chance to take in the surroundings, but what we did see was very nice.
