Few places embody the term road trip like the California coastline, and the picturesque town of Cambria makes for a perfect stopover on a weekend getaway en route from San Francisco to Los Angeles. While most hotels with a view also come with a price, the inviting Fog Catcher Inn (what a name!) is slashing its rates to $99 per night through March 31. Located along Moonbeach Drive and a stones throw from Hearst Castle, the old-English style cottage hotel (complete with a thatched roof and well-maintained gardens) boasts sweeping beach views, a cozy fireplace in every room, and free buffet breakfast too boot. Plus, guests can take in a wine tasting experience at a local wine shop which includes a souvenir tasting glass.
THE VALUE: Rates normally hover around $179 night (or more, depending on when you visit).
THE CATCH: Rates may not be available on Fridays and Saturdays.
