Stayed here on a recent business trip to Marina Del Ray. Great location right on the marina with great views. The hotel itself is small and really is a throwback to hotels and motels from the 60's. The management and staff were friendly and helpful and wanted to make sure that everything was satisfactory. It was expensive but reasonable for...

Our hotel is probably one of the last in Marina del Rey (proper) that has not yet been remodeled. That is one of the reasons we offer better rates, more complimentary amenities and a staff that makes time for our guests. We are pleased to hear that you would choose the Foghorn again. The rooms on the bayside are a...

I had everything I needed and felt right at home. A smaller hotel big on comfort. Breakfast and parking no additional charge. Conveniently located, safe, scenic views, and walking path around the marina just outside the door.

The outside of the Hotel is quite cute and we were pleased to have free parking which is not usually the case at beach hotels in this area. This is not a fancy place but it is reasonably priced (considering the area - as there is nothing truly cheap out here). The hotel room was nice and clean, a bit...

Thank you for staying at the Foghorn Harbor Inn and posting your descriptive comments on line.

I've stayed here several times, and love the ease and tranquility. The harbor view is nice, and it is centrally located. The staff is very nice. It's clean and reminds me of something out of the 60's.

My daughter and I had a weekend trip to LA and wanted to stay near the beach. We were also looking for a reasonable price. We found the Foghorn Harbor Inn. It was a 15 minute walk to Venice Pier.
