Nice hotel, great location. Needs a major overhaul

Posted Jun 28, 2015
Lovely staff, great location, but needs a few investors to make this place fabulous. it's time. It's 2015 for goodness sake not 1977.

location

Posted Jun 26, 2015
Pros: The location, and there is a pretty nice lobby.
Cons: The air conditioning in our room wasn't very effective.
Location: I already did, above.
This hotel is very close to Marina del Rey activities AND Venice activities. It's on a little beach and the marina (--of course). There are wonderful restaurants nearby. We especially liked Whiskey Red's, and The Warehouse was pretty good too. We rented a boat and went all around the marina.

Right Hotel, wrong room. Be careful what you book.

Posted Jun 19, 2015
Pros: Location, comfort if you have the right room
Cons: Air conditioning a bit past it.
Location: The location has a safe feel for walking the Marina or to Venice. Plenty choice for dining locally.
We have stayed at the Foghorn Harbor twice previously and found it an excellent alternative to the hotels closer to LAX. For this reason we booked it again for the last night of our vacation, planning to spend the evening relaxing on our balcony with a glass or two of wine enjoying the Marina view. We checked in at 2.00 and did no more than leave our suitcases in our room then take a walk to Venice Beach. On our return we went out to our balcony only to find it backed on to the kitchens of the Cheesecake Factory next door and the smells and noise from there made it impossible to enjoy sitting out. Furthermore the dividing wall between the properties cut our view by half. We complained to the front desk and asked for a change of room but were told it wasn't possible because housekeeping had finished for the day. We still rate this hotel, but the moral of the story is - be very sure what room you are getting when you book. Our night was totally spoiled.

AWESOME EXPERIENCE

Posted Jun 11, 2015
The Foghorn Harbor Inn was so welcoming - from the staff, to the location, to the comfortable fuzzy white towels and bedding. The staff was very, very friendly and helpful with recommendations regarding the area restaurants and things to do. The owner or manager - Graham - easily changed our reservations by one day when our plane was stranded and we didn't arrive when we were supposed to. They had a water cooler to fill your water bottles for the beach or whenever, fresh coffee always brewed and the breakfast was generous for a continental breakfast. This was a great place to stay with an excellent view of the marina right on the beach. We will definetly be staying here again.

Older hotel and rooms but wonderful service. Great fully stocked continental breakfast. Wonderful location right by the water and next to the Cheescake factory restaurant.

Friendly, convenient and clean.

We took an easy walk to the beach, pier and local gallery. We ate at the Cheesecake Factory right next door and enjoyed our weekend!

Hotel très confortable. Personnel serviable

Posted Apr 20, 2015
Pros: Emplacement et petit déjeuner inclus
Cons: Pas de coffe -machine dans la chambre mais compensé par le petit déjeuner très varié (oeufs, fruits frais, viennoiseries, etc)
Location: A 10 min de Venice Beach, plage mythique
Nous ne sommes restés (à regret) qu'une seule nuit dans cet hôtel qui s'est avéré une pépite. Emplacement de rêve sur la plage de la Marina à 10 minutes à pied de Venice beach, Los Angeles.Personnel très gentil et serviable. Chambre avec vue sur la plage très confortable, rien n'y manque. Petit déjeuner excellent sur une petite terrasse donnant sur la plage. Il y a même, pour ceux qui le souhaite, un lecteur DVD dans chaque chambre et des videos gratuites à emprunter.

Overall nice experience. Could use some updating (room color was white & royal blue). Like the breakfast included. Could have done without the Cheesecake Factory fgift cards.

Great location, good service

Posted Apr 11, 2015
Pros: Location, friendly staff
Location: I like a scenic run, and Venice Beach bike trail was close by. Lots of good restaurants and the Marina within a mile.
This is a simple hotel--mediocre breakfast, small room--but clean and comfortable and GREAT location. Also, the staff seemed to go out of their way to be helpful.
