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.

Thank you for your great review! We take great pride in our little hotel. We try to keep it fresh, clean and with many complimentary amenities to choose from. Our manager takes great care in the breakfast choices. If you haven't tried the Cheesecake Factory next door you should look into the package we offer. Their menu is fabulous. We look forward to you return.

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 in L.A. because there is not enough tidal outflow). Second, you can walk or bike to interesting places like Venice and Santa Monica. L.A. is a difficult place to be without a car, but from this location, visitors can cover quite a bit of territory West of Hwy 405 by foot, bike or bus. Third, even though this is in no way a deluxe facility, it is clear the management and staff are trying hard to make guests feel welcome and comfortable.

Room Tip: In this two-story motel, all rooms have either beach-level enclosed terraces or balconies.

Thank you for your recent visit to the Foghorn and your review. We are very glad that you noticed the improvements and that you have stayed with us and choose to return. All of our staff try very hard to please the guests. The maids put a lot of effort into keeping the hotel clean (which is harder to do with an older establishment). The manager is constantly working on keeping the breakfast varied, fresh and bountiful. We are fortunate to have one of the best locations in Marina del Rey. We look forward to your return.

My fiance and I are from Vancouver, BC, Canada and had traveled to Disneyland at the beginning of July - from there we went to Marina Del Rey and stayed in the Foghorn Inn. It surpassed our expectations by far! It is intimate but spacious for an inn, has a GORGEOUS location, attached to a market with a deli and liquor, right beside the amazing cheesecake factory, and only a five - ten minute walk from Venice beach!

The hotel isn't brand new but it is far from old. Extremely well maintained, aesthetically pleasing and outstanding location. Our room was large, with a King bed (I had the best sleeps of my life there) and spacious balcony on the marina side (we paid $30.00 a night for an upgrade and it is oh so worth it). There was a fridge, microwave and wall mounted TV, free DVDs to borrow in the lobby, a large variety of breakfast is provided downstairs, and the staff is sooo friendly. We were so sad to leave and will definitely go back. Free parking was included but we didn't have a car and used their free shuttle vouchers to and from the airport (which is nearby). Santa Monica is also a short and insanely beautiful bike ride away. The overall atmosphere of the hotel is a 11/10!

Room Tip: Upgrade to the ocean view room for sure - priceless!

We are absolutely delighted that you enjoyed your stay at our hotel. What we lack in size, we try to make up for by offering other incentives like our many complimentary amenities. The view is probably one of the very best in Marina del Rey. Thank you for staying with us, posting the pretty pictures of the Marina view and your wonderful comments. Please hurry back!

Excellent location! Had a second floor room overlooking the bay. Room was adequately furnished with comfortable beds, refrigerator and microwave. Loved watching the sunset from the balcony. Hotel also has free parking.

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at our hotel. The sunsets are wonderful from the patio. If you are an early riser the sunrise is amazing, as well. Location, location, location, that really speaks for itself. We do take pride in our comfortable rooms, friendly staff and many free amenities. We hope you visit us again and thank you for taking the time to post your review.

I just checked out of this hotel today (6/2) and immediately came home to write this review. This hotel is not as modern as some of the others close by but that was not an issue for me. A friend of mine booked this hotel on a whim and we are sure glad things worked out that way! I stayed on the lower lever with an epic marina view. The rooms were clean and the staff was by far the most helpful I have ever experienced when staying in a hotel. The front desk clerk (I wish I could remember her name) went out of her way to make sure we were happy. This hotel has the best access to the beach in comparison to its neighbors. The Cheesecake factory is literally next door and only about a 40 second walk, which was great because their outdoor patio section is full of heat lamps and beautiful fire pits with lounge seating if you just want to sit out and look at the marina while having a cocktail as the day ends. I am already planning my next trip back to stay here. It was also only about four miles to the Santa Monica Pier and even closer to Venice Beach which is where we spent our time when we chose to leave the hotel. Great location!

Room Tip: Choose a room on the lower level facing the marina if possible!
