If you are not looking for a high-rise Hotel with a gym & pool then this may be the right place for you. it is a quaint little Inn with easy walking access to the beach and many restaurants. My family and I stayed here while in town for my fathers Memorial Service, so it was no vacation. That said... More

The staff is excellent, the ambiance welcoming and the location, perfect ! The Mother's Beach right out the door with marina views is relaxing. The location next to a convenience store and a Cheese Cake Factory restaurant dangerously wonderful for the diet. An easy walk past galleries and lots of eating establishments to the Venice Pier and Venice Beach Ideal.... More

The Foghorn is a charming small hotel right on the beach on the harbor side of the Marina. It is not comparable to a 4 or 5 star commercial hotel, but it rates highly in a unique category. It has a very "beachy" feel which is just right for Marina del Rey. I found no fault with any aspect of... More

If you're not a hotel snob, you got to give this place a try. The location is fabulous! Located directly on the bay, walking distance to Venise Beach, great shopping & restaurants. Also, one of the cheapest cab fares to LAX if you're in the area for a lay over. Rooms are very outdated & lobby a little drab but... More

The location was wonderful, right on the Marina del Rey beach and close to Venice. Plenty of good restaurants nearby. We particularly loved Le Cellier, French-Vietnamese just a few blocks away. The room was nothing fancy, but it was large and well maintained. All the staff were friendly and helpful. I will definitely staff there again if I'm back in... More

Considering the location right on the beach overlooking the Marina, the price for a room here is very reasonable. The staff is very friendly and the beds are comfortable. Only slight issue was at check-in when I happened to catch that they were preparing to give me a king bed room when I had requested two double beds. Then they... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Foghorn. Its not a new hotel but the rates were reasonable for the accommodations and the location being close to Venice beach. The staff were helpful. No issues with parking and is walking distance from some great restaurants.

Free wifi, free breakfast (adequate, very small breakfast room), free parking. About 15 min drive from LAX and 15 min walk to Venice Beach (walk through Venice Canals is recommended!). The hotel has two floors, street level and "beach " level. Our room was on the beach level, ie one floor down (no lift), facing the marina. Bit of a... More

We were visiting my mother-in-law just up the road, so were looking for something near-by. Everything was highly priced, but I finally chose the Foghorn. Well I was VERY impressed!

Although I don't know who the owners are, we kept calling this place a 'Mom and Pop' hotel. My Aunt and Uncle used to own a small hotel on the Gulf, and their high standards would have also been reflected in the Foghorn Harbor Inn. The staff were very nice and accommodating. The hotel was spotless and in great shape.... More
