We usually stay at the MDR but wanted something a little smaller and near the water. Foghorn was just what we were looking for. Decent rooms, great staff, excellent fluffy towels, little older 'Bates Motel' type place, I loved it. Nice breakfast places nearby, which is good because (sorry guys) the free breakfast was sad. Will stay there again

We are glad you were able to experience our hotel (older) and acknowledge some of our great qualities, Obviously, breakfast was not one of them. We don't have room for a kitchen. Our manager offers a large variety but is always open for suggestions. We thank you for your review and do hope you come back to enjoy our location,...

Arriving here at night in the dark does not do the place justice. We had booked a street side room but chose to upgrade to upper water view for $30 extra. Only room left was just across from lobby and we could hear the manager talking to other guests, which was not ideal. However, waking up to the beautiful marina...

We appreciate your comments. The hotel is small so voices carry; sorry for the inconvenience. Glad to hear you upgraded to a Marina View Room, it is a great location and worth the extra cost. Very happy to know that you would come again. We welcome your next visit.

We arrived into LAX airport slightly late and then had a long wait at immigration and baggage reclaim. It was great to take the short trip to Marina del Rey and arrive at this very friendly and relaxing location overlooking the marina. The hotel is unprepossessing and the rooms are slightly dated - but everything you need is there. The...

It was refreshing to read your nice review on our little hotel. We do have a great location, with many conveniences close; especially if you are traveling to & from LAX. The views on the bayside are awesome. We do offer a lot of complimentary amenities that most hotels don't in this day and age. Nice to hear visitors like...

Reviewed 10 November 2013

The location is a 5! If you stay you need to spend a couple extra dollars and stay in the rooms directly overlooking Mother's Beach in the Marina. I thought it was a little overpriced though as my room needed painting and minor maintenance. It's an older style motel but you can't beat the location. The staff is friendly, although...

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at our hotel. We had a very busy summer so our maintenance fell a bit behind. We hope to catch up soon. We are glad you were still able to enjoy the friendly staff, complimentary continental breakfast, free parking and the great views from your patio.

Perfect place to stay with beautiful beach/marina views. Comfortable room, with large windows and balcony with the constant view. Hard to make the effort to actually go out sometimes, as just enjoyed being there seeing everything from our room. Very clean and comfortable. Also, being small, was quiet and did not have a hotel feel. Impressed with the fact that...

The hotels in this area are quite pricy, or so we thought. With this in mind, The Foghorn is a clean, nice and value for money place to stay. The breakfast included was simple - make it yourself style , but still we were impressed with the number of choices supplied. Eyleen and the rest of the staff gave good...
