Foghorn Harbor Inn

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It was fine. Nothing special but comfortable and clean. We had a balcony and the room next to us also. They were up late partying, being loud on their balcony. I called the office to complain and they took care of it immediately. Then I was able to sleep. Nice views of the Bay with a Sandy beach.

Very friendly staff. Poor breakfast, but free is free. Room right on sandy beach of harbor and walking distance from Venice fishing pier.

Cons: Room was clean but old. Looked like it used to be a motel. air conditioner blew out a little dirt, got on the bed. Can be a bit noisy at night. Breakfast was just ok, cereal, oatmeal and bagels basically, I was expecting something hot but hey it was free so... Pros: Bathroom was very clean and nice. Staff was very friendly and helpful, Hotel was right off the beach, right next door to Cheesecake factory and a block from other small restaurants. Free breakfast and snacks. Nice pool and Jacuzzi. Very reasonably priced. Note: There is no "shuttle service" as advertised, you pay a cab to bring you from the airport, get a printed receipt, present it to the front desk and they reimburse you with cash. But going back to the airport, your on your own. I really didn't have a problem with it, I checked out and hour late and they were totally cool so overall good experience. If you just need a place to lay your head and are gonna spend most of your trip out of the room then this is place for you.

I liked this little place especially because it next to the water

Awesome, I love everything about this place. Perfect view, conviniet location, quit

Very Good family beach hotel and Good price ,this is my first time stay in this hotel, I will be back . I will recommend to my friend .

We enjoy visiting Southern California, and have stayed at many different locations up and down the coast. We have found a our new favorite The Foghorn Harbor Inn! The location can't be beat if you are looking to visit Santa Monica, Venice, Hollywood, Beverly Hills as well as, Disneyland, and the surrounding attractions and beach locations. Additionally, it is a short drive from LAX yet, without any of the airport noise. The staff was extremely friendly, courteous, and accommodating. Upon arrival, we were informed that our room had been upgraded to a harbor view at no extra fee! There is a water sport rental location within walking distance, where you can rent kayaks and paddle boards for reasonable rates. We are already planning our trip for next year and will be choosing the Foghorn Harbor Inn!

I'd describe the place as quaint! Staff was very friendly. Location is great with pretty view of the harbor with is largely reflective on the price per night. Slightly dated but well maintained. Complementary breakfast was just okay. Fee free parking a plus.

Nice location and treated us well! Walked to the beach and food was less than 5 minutes away.

Great location, just minutes from LAX. Faces beautiful beach on Marina. Microwave and mini-fridge. Cool a/c. Just a perfect place from which to explore L.A.

This was our third stay in very nice motel style place on a great kids beach inside Marina del Rey yet 3 long blocks from Venice Beach and the ocean. TV system was a real mess however with more Asian and Mexican channels than ones in english. Seems it is set up more for playing DVD's than watching local LA channels. Nice continental breakfast provided too.

We found the hotel with ease after driving in LA traffic. Was greeted with very friendly hotel staff that quickly gave us a complimentary upgrade to a marina view room with a large veranda. They also were very accommodating in helping us tourist know where to go and how to get there. Will definitely stay there again if ever in this area.

It was our last night in CA and we wanted somewhere close to LAX and close to Venice Beach. The location was good. It is a short walk to Venice Beach/Pier. The hotel is on the beach area of the marina at Marina del Rey. The hotel rooms were very dated. We had a 2x4 shelving unit over the frig for the dvr. The patio overlooking the marina is nice if you have time to use it. The bathroom amenities were nice.

Not beeing familiar with area and haviing booked late my expectation wasn't high. The service desk and location was excellent. Funky beach and easy to find from airport made it a fun surprise

I had to leave this hotel and stay elsewhere as the smell was so strong that I couldn't stay. The room was dirty and the linens and furniture were old and over used. The walls were scratched up with dirty hand prints on them. It was a 2 star hotel at best.

it was very nice..the food and liquor market next door was a rip-off..beware of tht place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This was my second stay Fully enjoyed our stay. Contrasts nicely with large chain hotels.

Parking by the door. Fine rooms. Great view over the marina. Ok service from the staff. Fine breakfast. Over all fine place near Venice Beach.

A few of us went down to visit another friend of ours and was pleasantly surprised at the amenities surrounding the hotel, as well as being upgraded to a better room simply because they were out of the room that I had originally booked. All around, great stay at a nice hotel. Thanks!!

The shower was broken and the balcony light were broken and flashing in and out.
