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 borrow if you're spending time at the hotel, a liquor store/market at the front of the hotel open until 11pm and a Cheesecake factory right next door.
Self service breakfast was included and pretty good with toast/bagels/burrito's, coffee/tea/juices, muffins/danish and cereal, yogurt and fruit, so pretty much something you'll enjoy. We ate breakfast out in the patio area overlooking the beach. There was also a nice sitting area just passed reception. The public areas are decorated in nice bright colours that work well with the beach theme, but the rooms in comparison are a bit more sombre and basic. The beds were OK, but some money spent on new beds and a lick of paint in the rooms would go a long way to complete a very nice homely place to stay, close to LAX.
Although the room furniture may be a bit passed it's best, everything was very clean and well presented. We were also staying elsewhere in California in a 4 star and 5 star hotel, but the Foghorn is a nice change from the sometimes sterile corporate hotels and is a nice relaxed, easy going place to call home for a couple of days.
Finally, free Wi-Fi & parking makes this hotel good value at this location.
