I don't think this place is even worth a star. My friend and I made a reservation online, never got a confirmation email, so we took a screenshot of the page from the website. We had to cancel our reservation, so we tried to cancel online, it didn't work for some reason. We called in to cancel, and since it...

After living in Marina Del Rey, many years earlier, my husband took me back for a nostolgic visit. I must have driven by the Foghorn Inn hundreds of time years ago, but never entered the door.

Thank you for staying with us at the Foghorn Harbor Inn. It is not new and lacks some of the advantages of the bigger hotels.

Absolutely brilliant hotel/motel, only 10min walk away from Venice beach and only a short drive away from Santa Monica. The rooms were lovely and there is a store right next door. The breakfast in the morning is lovely, and there is a great selection.

We used to live in Marina del Rey and have stayed at the Foghorn a number of times since moving away. On our most recent trip, we were more impressed than ever by this modest 1970s-style motel for its cleanliness and the customer care. First, you are right on "the beach" (even though Mother's Beach is among the most polluted...
