Nice location, right on Mothers beach (has been used in CSI Miami as a Miami double!). We got a warm welcome on check in and the place has a nice relaxed feel. We had a room overlooking the car park, but would book a harbor view next time if we'd know how good the view is. There are books/DVD's to... More

Been trying to find the time to write this since we got home! My husband and I stayed for three nights at the end of February and it was another fantastic experience. Perfect location right on the beach! The rooms are incredibly comfortable and really well appointed- and spotlessly clean.The view from the upstairs balcony rooms over the harbour- twinkly... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Foghorn Harbor Inn last week - I had a King Room on the 1st floor, with a balcony overlooking the beach and found it very comfortable. I thought it was good-value-for money - it felt small enough to be homely, in a good location, within easy reach of Venice Beach.

A strange hotel with some rooms in the basement with enclosed patios overlooking the beach. Our room was one of these and although spacious with comfortable beds, the whole thing was just a bit shoddy and downmarket, as if it needed some money spent on it. The furniture looked home made and cheap, the lock on the patio door was... More

Thank you for your recent visit and comments. We are an older, smaller hotel. The way we compete is by offering clean rooms, a decent continental breakfast, free parking and numerous other complimentary amenities. We also offer a much lower price than the 5-star hotels you are referring to and have one of the very best locations in Marina del... More

We parked our car in the free parking lot, and explored nautical Marina del Rey and Bohemian Venice Beach by foot. We took a second floor, marina-side room, which is our strong recommendation. It was clean and nice. The view was tremendous. We were right on uncrowded Mother's Beach, with a view down the yacht harbor. We entertained our 20-something,... More

We usually stay at the MDR but wanted something a little smaller and near the water. Foghorn was just what we were looking for. Decent rooms, great staff, excellent fluffy towels, little older 'Bates Motel' type place, I loved it. Nice breakfast places nearby, which is good because (sorry guys) the free breakfast was sad. Will stay there again

We are glad you were able to experience our hotel (older) and acknowledge some of our great qualities, Obviously, breakfast was not one of them. We don't have room for a kitchen. Our manager offers a large variety but is always open for suggestions. We thank you for your review and do hope you come back to enjoy our location,... More

Arriving here at night in the dark does not do the place justice. We had booked a street side room but chose to upgrade to upper water view for $30 extra. Only room left was just across from lobby and we could hear the manager talking to other guests, which was not ideal. However, waking up to the beautiful marina... More

We appreciate your comments. The hotel is small so voices carry; sorry for the inconvenience. Glad to hear you upgraded to a Marina View Room, it is a great location and worth the extra cost. Very happy to know that you would come again. We welcome your next visit. More

We arrived into LAX airport slightly late and then had a long wait at immigration and baggage reclaim. It was great to take the short trip to Marina del Rey and arrive at this very friendly and relaxing location overlooking the marina. The hotel is unprepossessing and the rooms are slightly dated - but everything you need is there. The... More

It was refreshing to read your nice review on our little hotel. We do have a great location, with many conveniences close; especially if you are traveling to & from LAX. The views on the bayside are awesome. We do offer a lot of complimentary amenities that most hotels don't in this day and age. Nice to hear visitors like... More
