Reviewed 5 days ago NEWvia mobile

A little old motel who has survived a sea of Marriotts and other big-box hotels. Unlike big-box hotels, you have immediate access to the marina with a generously-sized patio. The rooms are very clean and well appointed. The staff is exceptional, particularly Eileen. Attention is paid to little details-- snacks, good DVD selection, subtle sound of classical music playing while...

Thank you for your heartfelt review of our hotel. We really appreciate feedback like yours. We can't compete with the big box hotels on many levels but we can by offering the complementary amenities you mentioned plus cleanliness, comfort and service with a smile. We have one of the best locations for the views, convenience and walking distance to nearby...

you can have a small stay for a good price but not too long because rooms are old and breakfast is like a mess but the place of marina del rey is gorgeous and you are near every thing cool and with a lot of retaurants nearby

Thank you for choosing the Foghorn Hotel for your recent Marina del Rey visit. We look forward to guest comments and didn't quite understand what was meant by breakfast being a mess. We offer a lot of choices. We don't have a kitchen so that somewhat limits our selection. We are happy that you enjoyed our great location and found...

Family members had stayed here before, so I knew broadly what to expect. The Foghorn worked very well as the base for a family group from around the world which assembled here over a four-day period to pay tribute to a much-loved aunt who had died the previous month. In an area dominated by apartments and yacht clubs, the Foghorn...

Thank you for choosing the Foghorn Harbor Inn for your family group get-together. We appreciate your comments. We are probably the last remaining hotel in the Marina that has not been remodeled and updated (we are waiting our turn). We are always happy to hear that our visitors like the smaller, friendlier, less hectic pace. What we lack in "modern"...

This adorable family owned hotel offers comfort, warm welcomes and all possible amenities. Extremely well located on Mothers Beach and rooms have great terraces for enjoying the atmosphere and view of the marina. Less than one block away is the Cheesecake Factory. Lower level for full continental breakfast and lots of first class teas and goodies available in lobby level...

Loved the warmth, the fresh coffee brewing throughout the day, plentiful continental-plus breakfasts (which I took by tray to my room). Felt like I was in my own beach cottage. Get a room with a view and enjoy this comfy, low keyed, friendly place. Extra points for the cleanliness!

Thank you! Your comments are so welcome. The environment you described is exactly what our staff tries to provide. Friendly, comfortable, great continental breakfast (manager will love to hear), clean (maids work very hard). The front desk, also works hard to keep the 24/7 coffee in the lobby fresh among other things, of course.! We love what you posted.

This hotel was just what we were looking for. It is a small independently owned hotel where the owners and employees actually care about their guests. From the moment we arrived (2 hours before check-in) they went out of their way to get our room cleaned, offered snacks and a nice patio to wait on. They offer free breakfast which...
