"Moonstone Beach"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The location on Moonstone Beach is great. People at the front desk were courteous, the grounds were well tended.

"Decline in quality."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We have stayed at the Fog Catcher for over five (5) years and enjoyed the location and choices of rooms. However, this last stay was less than stellar; the first room we were given smelled of paint as they were refreshing the surrounding room, the phone did not work, which is an issue since cell service is non existent and there was no hot water in the shower.

"Bad Anniversary experience."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Had questions about my Book it reservation. Called Fog Catcher and the person I talked to was so rude that I called back and canceled my reservation. Just wanted a get a way forward our 56 yr anniversary and figured if she was that rude on the phone I didn’t want to deal with her in person.
