Stayed at hotel for 3 nights when first arrived in LA. Nice quiet location with great views from room across marina. Stayed in an upstairs room with balcony. Ideally located next door to the Cheesecake Factory, which is great to walk for a meal and a convenience/liquor store also next door. Also, 5 mins walk to Venice Canals and Venice...

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...

We are very glad you enjoyed your recent stay at our hotel and were happy with the room, the 24-hr. staff, extensive continental breakfast,(our manager puts a lot of effort into providing variety and keeping things fresh) and of course, our great location!

It's not a fancy shmancy hotel BUT location location location. The rooms directly overlook the Marina del Rey ocean bay beach and yachts. That is, you're on a beach.

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...

A welcome haven after long flight! ...and welcoming friendly staff too. Our comfortable room on upper floor, with balcony and almost directly over the sand seemed paradise to me.

Stayed here a couple of nights as wanted to be close to Marina Del Ray area. Hotel position is fine - right on the beach to the marina. Hotel itself was looking a bit tired. We had a marina view room on ground floor which had a boxed-in patio area with glass screen - provided a bit of privacy from...

Thank you for your recent stay at our hotel and your comments. The location can't be beat nor can the price when you include all the complementary amenities. If you don't find a better value, perhaps you will come again & try an upper room with a balcony. The views are extraordinary and worth a little extra.

Foghorn is a really nice, unpretentious place to stay, and the location can't be beat! Rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean - parking is easy (unlike many hotels in nearby Venice Beach or Santa Monica) and staff was very friendly. This place is not for people seeking a super-trendy hotel - it's simply a straight-up nice place to stay if...

We were put up here when the apartment we were renting had been double booked for our first night, so the landlord paid for us to stay here.

So sorry you had a bad experience at our little hotel. It is small so sometimes it is hard to mitigate the noise from inconsiderate people. Though, I think that can happen anyplace. Usually our "continental" breakfast gets good reviews because of the large variety and fresh options. Our apologies for that moldy croissant and the desk staff's response or...
