FogCatcher Inn: "Spacious room in nearby Cambria" Top 5 Page for this destination Hearst San Simeon State Historical Monument Hotel Tip by Dabs
Hearst San Simeon State Historical Monument Hotels: 4 reviews and 7 photos
Kat and I stayed at the FogCatcher in nearby Cambria overnight so that we could get an early start to Hearst Castle the next morning, it's only about 6 miles to Hearst Castle and it appeared that although San Simeon has some hotels of it's own, they were mostly budget chain hotels without a lot of ambiance.
The Fog Catcher is on Moonstone Beach, there's access to a beachfront walking path right across the street. Soon after I took a photo of the beach around 5 pm, the fog did indeed roll in and stayed there until after we left the next morning.
Unique Qualities: Our room at the Fog Catcher was enormous, 2 queen beds, a gas fireplace, a small kitchen with a coffee maker, microwave, and a small refrigerator along with a couple of complimentary bottles of water. There's an ironing board and iron in the room and a TV with a decent selection of channels.
The bathroom had a heat lamp, plenty of hot water, toiletries include soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion. There are bathrobes and a hairdryer.
There's a very nice deluxe continental breakfast in the morning with pastries, fruit, cereal, eggs, sausages, juice, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, toast plus my personal favorite, do it yourself waffles (ha, ha, now Kat has seen me cook!)
The Fog Catcher has a heated pool but we didn't use it.
