Stayed in this hotel at the end of June 2014 and this is by far the most horrendous hotel experience ever (and we are frequent travelers, staying regularly in hotels in the US and abroad). - Absolutely appalling customer service: the walls are so thin we were woken up at 6am on the first night by banging doors, loud noise...

We stayed 2 nights last week in a room just off the foyer facing the water. View was fine, room was quiet and the buffet breakfast more than adequate. The airconditioner was needed and uncomfortably loud. Had to turn it off to sleep. The bathroom exhaust fan was also uncomfortably loud. I suspect the surrounding more modern hotels have better...

This is the worst hotel I have ever been to! THE RECEPTIONIST Eileen was very rude to my girlfriend! She REFUSED to tell my girlfriend her name! I later found out her real name from another clerk. Worst of all Eileen said "WE ARE OUT OF TOWELS" when my girlfriend came up to the desk. how can a "hotel" be... More

We checked in and got a lower floor unit with a huge balcony/patio. Of course the beach is right there but so are all the people who walk by. There is no elevator so one must go up and down stairs with any luggage. The worst part was that the Internet would not connect. I had an assignment due that... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our hotel. We apologize that connecting to the Internet turned out to be a problem for you. I will talk to the manager to see if we can make the downstairs connections more reliable. Upstairs we have good reception. Did you ask for a discount? Glad that you were... More

After a week of whitewater rafting in Idaho, the Foghorn Inn met our needs perfectly for 2 days prior to a long flight home. We adored it the moment we saw it and after a day of flying the liquor store next to the car-park was the icing on the cake. The staff could not have been more wonderful and... More

Our trip was set for May 25th, 2014, so very recent. I used American Express travel site to book. This looked good since it was on the waters and I wanted to take my wife for a weekend date. This part of the weekend, Sunday, was at the Foghorn. It was old, dirty, smells old and dirty. I was told... More

This is your very basic hotel that probably dates back to the sixties, yet charges like a five star hotel, charging twice the price of the Radisson in Cape Canaveral. Our room was on the lower ground at beach level, and this sounds great, however as your screen wall is tight against a public footpath when you are sitting in... More

Our hotel is old, but we keep the interior updated and clean. We are not a five-star hotel, nor do we charge like one. You must not have checked the other hotels right in Marina del Rey. Our rates are consistently lower and we offer many complimentary amenities to our guests. All of our rooms have recently had new pillow... More

We stayed here for a long weekend in May 2014. We were able to park right outside the lobby and our room on the top floor was spacious, clean and well equipped. We loved the Marina views and the gorgeous sunrises. It's the perfect location for exploring Marina del Rey and it's possible to walk everywhere if you're so inclined.... More
