Life is a never-ending summer in LA’s Beach Cities. Redondo Beach and surfing are forever intertwined. On weekends, many Angelinos head to Santa Monica to relax in the ocean and hang out at the Third Street Promenade. The Getty Center, an art-world powerhouse, is nestled in the nearby hills north of Brentwood. Santa Monica’s neighbor, Malibu, is home to The Getty Villa and its antiquities.see all hotels in Marina del Rey
I have been staying at this hotel for ;years.....I love everything about it so I'm being biased in this assessment. It's a clean, family owned hotel staffed with happy long-term employees. The location is ideal and I assume everyone liks a room right on the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Take a pass on this hotel."
Unfortunately, not very much. Old and tired facility. Had to walk and carry heavy baggage down flight of stairs due to no elevator. Lower level hallway smelled musty. Free continental breakfast was appreciated but unappealing. The check-in process was harried and the woman on the desk was frantic and disorganized. No fitness center and no nearby gyms […] with association to the hotel was a major setback for us. All in all, quite below average for the price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice room for the price"
while the hotel is not fancy, it is very functional. The service is friendly and the breakfast area is well stocked and complementary. This is hotel is s typical 1950--60 era design so its not the Ritz, but it has a great location, access to the Marina beach and large rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staying at this hotel was a pleasant time jump, it seemed it had not changed in a few decades and that nostalgia from the past is what enchanted us although the overall decor and comfort of the rooms go along the same way... Maybe our european taste for oldies influence our judgement... The view and location are first class though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Business Trip to Marina Del Rey"
I was a little surprised at the age of the hotel. It was a throw back to the 1980's. I love the size of the room and patio, the breakfast and location. the décor could stand a little updating. Nice place for a family with small children to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"it does not get much better at any price"
Great location with fantastic views of the beach and harbor. It's within walking distance of dozens of restaurants. It is not the Four Seasons nor does it try to be. It is friendly, cute, and homey, offering a positive hotel experience that is hard to find in LA. This little gem comes with free parking, free Wi-Fi, free coffee/tea in the lobby, an friendly […] helpful staff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was so pleasant and helpful they make you feel right at home. its like hidden little jem, I will definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The check in staff were very friendly and helpful with printing information I needed on line. The sunset views were amazing from the balcony. The swimming pool was clean and the water warm enough to swim in quite comfortably. The room was very spacious with duel sinks and a rainfall shower head. Loved the bathrobes. The security gates were a good idea […] going down to the beach and up to the main level. We always felt safe. Free parking in the large lot was available. Breakfast was plentiful with a good variety of pastries,fruit, and cereals. The beach was clean and the hotel provided beach toys for the kids and chairs and umbrellas for the parents. The staff was professional and looked nice in their khakis and polo shirts. The drive into San Diego was easy. The coaster train is within easy walking distance. There were lots of nice shops and restaurants in Carlsbad also. We will definitely be back for another vacation. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wow, location location location!"
The three things about real estate is location, location and location, the staff is wonderful and helpful. The hotel has the feel of staying over at a friend’s house it has everything you need but not everything you want if you plan on just staying in the hotel. It is a place to walk to the places you want to see, It made me understand how nice it is […] to bike around Santa Monica and close enough to LA to enjoy the sites. - Touristamou Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This motel is from another era, perfect if you've driven in on Route 66. I mean this in a nice way. Look, the beds are motel quality and the rooms creak a bit, but the place is very clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. It was kind of a nice change from the hotel chains. The breakfast was simple in a motel way: single-serve kellogg's cereals […] (limited selection), single serve bottles of OJ, Yoplait yogurt, weighty muffins from Costco, and mediocre coffee. Overall, no complaints. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendly Staff and Excellent location"
We stayed here when we went to visit Venice Beach. The location was excellent since it is right on the sand, and the views of the harbor were awesome. It is within walking distance of several of our favorite restaurants too. The staff is super helpful and friendly. It's definitely not the biggest or most luxurious hotel, but the location and staff make […] up for that! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hidden Marina del Rey Gem"
Had a wonderful stay in Marina del Rey. We've always stayed in/near LAX airport chains but not now that we've discovered Foghorn Harbor Inn. Parking, breakfast, snacks and wi-fi (spotty signal) were all included which adds easily up to a great savings compared to the chains. We upgraded to an upstairs room (but probably didn't need to) which was very […] comfortable, clean and great view from the balcony overlooking the marina. Surprisingly quiet considering the sand volleyball court is right outside and we were directly next to The Cheescake Factory. We want to try the 6 stop hop on and off water taxi that stops at marina locations of interest and had a stop just next to the Inn. Oh-and it was very foggy our stay-added to the charm and relaxing nature of our stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This Inn is a little outdated however the staff was extremely nice, the Inn was cozy, we did not have any issues at all and stayed a few days. The location was convenient and walking distance from Ventura Beach and the Inn offered free parking which was nice. The free breakfast was nice overlooking the marina. If we go back to that area I would definitely […] stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location; facilities long in the tooth"
We really enjoyed staying in Marina del Rey, and our room's back patio was literally on the beach. That said, the air conditioner had seen better days and was quite noisy. Also, we needed to complain to get our room made up in a timely fashion. The ability to borrow DVD's was a nice plus. The free breakfast was a nice touch as well, although the food […] was pretty modest. We appreciated the helpful attitudes of the several front desk staff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Except for the location of the hotel, the place looks like a rundown place and the rooms are not comfortable for the price we paid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to the beach"
Love the location. The room is nice and clean. Nice-sized room, nice view, best breakfast I have ever had in any hotels I have ever been to. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.Genuine Expedia guest review
"big trip west. Marina del Ray, right on harbour"
This was a gem in our 25 day road trip! Quaint almost seaside cottage room interiors. Lovely spa like towels, after days of threadbare towels in other hotels, these were like being in your own bathroom. Nice area, though we like the more southern beach towns better. Very close to Venice and Santa Monica, for bigger rooms and much nicer accommodations […] for probably 60% of their prices. Close to beaches. Excellent day time manager. Lovely man.

"VERY NICE Motel Staff... wonderful stay!"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay... VERY nice Motel staff, helpful at every moment, and when we were preparing for our day at the beach, they even provided an umbrella and two boogie-boards for free for us to use for the day. Plus... they even had a selection of DVDs we could use in our room for free. The only negative would be that the room was small, […] and barely fit the FOUR of us, and did not have the ability to accommodate the two more in our family (thus, we had to in advance make other accommodations for my son and myself. VERY helpful staff, though, and nice whenever asked! ( Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was such a beautiful hotel and nice place to stay. We were only there one night, but wished we were able to stay longer. The hotel is right on Mother's Beach,which was so nice and private. The room was great,nice and clean with a balcony and ocean view. There is a Cheesecake Factory next door and we were given a $50 gift card at check in! The morning […] breakfast was great...more than just continental with hard bodied eggs, yogurt lots of fruit and breakfast sandwiches. We would come back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Although the hotel is not very modern, the staff was outstanding, the location cant be beat and the comfort level was excellent. It had a cozy bed and breakfast type of charm. We loved it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable, convenient location"
Despite the rumors that you have to drive everywhere in L.A., we were pleasantly surprised to be in a hotel that had a nice view from the room and also was in a walkable neighborhood with many people out and about at the local restaurants and beach. You can go fishing at the ocean pier, or just watch other people go fishing. There's even a grocery store […] right next door that's open late if you want to drink wine and go buy junk food and sandwiches. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Such a pleasure to stay here! Delighted to see our room truly had a serene view of the nearby harbor and beach. We had a patio that placed us next to the beach, which was sweet! Enjoyed a great dinner at The Cheesecake Factory at the top of their cool outdoor seating tiers, almost next door. The room & bathroom were perfectly clean and attractive. The […] bed was a dream. Thank you, Graham and staff, for a most pleasant series of delights. You clearly care about treating guests with kindness and caring. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is in a great location and a perfect spot for families with young kids. We were just minutes from the airport and within a very short time our family was on the beach and swimming. The beach had playground for the kids to enjoy. The downside was the cleanliness of our room/hallway. If we were staying more than one night, I would have requested […] a different room. Overall, I would highly recommend the Fog Horn. The staff were extremely helpful and nice, the view was perfect and the beach was wonderful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
stayed in Marina Del Ray for first time. Great location to beach, right on water (harbor). Enjoyed great dinner at nearby restaurant. Very friendly staff and hospitality.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, bad beds"
We stayed one night while on a trip touring the area. The price was quite high considering the state of the room. It was clean and in a great location with views onto the 'beach' and volleyball courts. The private patio area was a very nice feature. The bed was extremely soft/saggy and bouncy (springs), neither of us slept well and both had some back […] pain the next day. The hotel is really designed to be a place to stay for a longer amount of time and get settled in and comfortable with the patio, fridge, large bathroom, interesting neighborhood and local sites, etc. But the beds are so uncomfortable that we were glad to only stay one night. I liked the beach theme to the room, but my wife thought it was a little too old fashioned and tacky. We also flew in from a different time zone and wanted to take a nap in the afternoon, but the walls were paper thin and we could hear everything that our neighbors were doing in addition to the multiple beach volleyball games outside that didn't end until sun down. It was quiet at night though. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice quaint little hotel near the harbor."
Had a great time. Was there for one night. Went to the beach and walked around. Smelled the yummy aroma coming from the Cheesecake factory. They had a continental breakfast in the morning. Lots to pick from.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice little hotel on marina beach in Venice"
The Foghorn is a nice little hotel with free parking on a quiet and children-friendly beach with view over a marina, in walking distance to Venice Beach and the Venice Canals. This is nothing overly fancy or glamorous, but they provide an above-average (for US hotels) breakfast, a nice view (if your room goes out to the beach), a microwave and a fridge […] in the room, free DVDs and more. A small grocery and liquor store and a Cheescake Factory outlet are very close by. There are plenty of food choices within walking distance. The rooms have a balcony or a patio going out to the beach. Just perfect, if you are not a regular 4- or 5-star hotel customer. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not too nice"
It was an older, smaller property, not that nice. But it would be hard to improve at this point, as it would be hard to change without a major redo.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to everything"
We stayed here before and really enjoyed it about 5 years ago. When we were returning to L.A. The Foghorn was the only hotel we considered. It was just as good the second time. Would stay here again!Genuine Expedia guest review

Pleasant hotel, right next to small beach. Good service, free internet, friendly staff. Breakfast OK, but could be better.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is wonderful, right on the bay beautiful way to wake up. We wanted to visit a California beach, but didn't want to have to worry about parking so we just walked there. It only took us 10 minutes to walk there through many little shops and resturants. Great breakfast and hotel staff, they even had stamps and somewhere to drop off postcards! […] I highly recommend the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Peaceful and romantic."
We upgraded to a Marina View and we watched sailing lessons as well as board paddling lessons going on in the morning. We left our sliding glass door open all night for sea air; we walked to dinner at the KILLER SHRIMP Rest too. Very Comfy and the bath towels so fluffy!Genuine Expedia guest review
"A Nice Place To Stay in a Great Location"
Very nice place, if a little on the old side, but the price was pretty good. If you want a newer hotel in the Marina it'll probably cost a lot more. The room was very clean, everything worked properly. The location is awesome, plus it's right next store to a small market, so easy to get supplies if you need them.. Our second floor (top floor) room had […] an excellent view of Marina del Rey. The check in clerk was very nice and friendly. So, other than being fairly old, I'd say it was a very good overnight stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed here one night this week while on-site with a nearby customer, and then was the saddest when I needed to add an extra night and they were already full. It's a really nice motel, not swank but incredibly comfortable and clean. The views cannot be beat; you are literally on the beach. I spent the entire evening sprawled on my lounge chair on […] my huge patio reading a book, watching the landing pattern at LAX and the boats in the marina. The staff is incredibly kind, the parking and breakfast are free (neither ever happens in LA), it's quiet, and the proximity to the coast means the weather is always as divine as it gets. In 15 years of business travel, I've never thought "I really have to come back here and bring my husband" until now. When I tried to book a second night, I got a very kind voicemail from the staff apologizing that they were full, so you may want to call to confirm if you're trying to reserve last minute, but do everything you can to get a room. You won't regret it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Great place to stay. I was very surprised. The room was very clean and the beds were comfy. I would definitely be coming back. Very family friendly, water & play area within walking distance.

"Good place to stay"
Overall a good place to stay. The hotel staff is outstanding. Very friendly and helpful. The hotel is an older place in a great location. The room seemed a bit dated with older budget furnishings. The staff went above and beyond with the linens and the towels. They seemed liked they belonged in a much more expensive place. I could hear the noises from […] both the hallway and outside. Plenty of parking and it was free. That was a big bonus. It is definitely an above average place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a great location for our stay...just blocks from my daughters apartment. I had read a review about an odor in the lobby and I would have to agree....cleaning supplies most likely, but pretty strong. The room was clean and adequate. I might request an upstairs room next time, there was a lot of traffic walking by the room all day...walking along […] the beach path. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cozy, friendly, perfect beach getaway!!"
The staff were incredibly friendly, we felt like they actually tried to get to know us as friends. The free breakfast was yummy, nothing extraordinary. They have movies that you can take to your room at any time. You can walk out the back and find yourself on the shore of the marina, great for nighttime strolls! The only downside was that hotels.com […] advertised there being a pool, and there isn't one. Definitely not too bad tho, seeing as you are right by the water, and a ten minute walk from some fun shopping and the beach itself! We took a day to walk all through Venice and Santa Monica, no driving necessary. We will definitely be coming back here!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was quite a bit older than the others nearby in the marina. It has been well taken care of, but still shows its age. Linens are very nice, but other furnishings are older and less nice. Free snacks and breakfast were great (lots of good choices, better than average breakfast). Not bad, but not the best in the area for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location & Costs- Can't go wrong at Foghorn!"
"Cozy, Intimate and Quiet" Still rings true!! Great Location, everything is nearby and driving around to multiple beaches is so close. Rooms are clean, Beds are new and comfy, Marina/Swimming area is in the backyard, and Cheesecake Factory is attached (along with other restaurants in walking distance). Free Breakfast, Free Parking and Free Wi-Fi is […] a huge relief to your pocket books- not to mention the cheap rooms! Loved having a Market next door to get those forgotten items and to buy snack foods and alcohol. The place is outdated, but the walls are sound proof- we didn't hear anyone all night. Air Conditioner is in the wall, not central AC- but perfect for Cali Weather. Towels in bathroom are very nice and big! Haven't enjoyed a hotel in a long time! & To Note, I'm a very picky person and had huge reservations because this place was much cheaper than the others around the area, but Foghorn exceeded every expectation! Already planning a return Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome Patio. Good Breakfast. Thin Walls"
We only stayed at Foghorn for one night, but we found the place good for the price. The hotel and room were dated but clean. We were downstairs, and the patio was exceptional! We had a view of the harbor, glass protection from wind, and a large area to sit and eat breakfast. Their continental breakfast was much better than what I have experienced in […] the past. There were many choices of breakfast foods. They had a refrigerator with hard boiled eggs, yogurt, many kinds of juices and cereals, and toasters for waffles or bagels. Everything was great except that the people in the room next to us were partying into the early morning hours. The walls were thin, so we could hear everything. I finally called the front desk, and the man came an knocked on their door and asked them to be quiet. They didn't listen to him and continued to be loud. We didn't sleep well because of their noise. They should have been kicked out. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
