A run down shack by the beach
Old, run down, torn carpets, water stains on ceiling. The only selling point is the hotel really is right on the beach and the area nearby is nice. Staff were not helpful and looked like they might be on drugs but not rude and not threatening. Bathroom was old and run down but clean enough to use.

Mostly good…
There is much to like about The Foghorn. Our room was very nice. The bed comfortable and the view fabulous. However the service at the hotel was just okay. There are no coffee pots in the room but they offer coffee in the morning in the lobby. Except when they don’t they had run out of coffee pods fie two days. They didn’t seem to care. There are stores all around to get replacements. What hotel doesn’t have coffee pots in the room? The Foghorn.

Two star place with a five star view
Nice location location with easy access to Venice Beach and LA. The bed wasn’t comfortable and you could hear cleaning staff having conversations after midnight. Wouldn’t stay here again.

Nice spot for a decent price — great sunrises!
This was a great spot right on Marina Beach. The room was comfortable — the bed a little too soft for my taste, but it was fine. I was in the last room down the hall, next to the Cheesecake Factory kitchen, and it got a little noisy, but nothing I couldn’t deal with. All-in-all a great place and I would definitely come back!

Location is excellent but that’s it!
This was day 2 of a college tour road trip. I wasn’t expecting much but it was rated “very good” on so I figured it couldn’t be too bad. We reserved for 4 people. We were given 2 towels and a facecloth. No bath mat. The room just felt dirty. The patio had cigarette butts on the ground. The door to the hall had a huge gap between door and floor making every single noise in the hallway sound like it was in our room. We were on the ground floor and if I opened the door I could hear the staff talking at the desk up the stairs yet somehow they did not hear the loud music from 1am - after 3am coming from a room near ours. The location was excellent and the staff were friendly (even if oblivious to the loud noise). I know they have remodeled rooms but you had to pay extra and we decided we’d be ok with an outdated room. Maybe the newer rooms had a cleaner feel, maybe not. We wouldn’t stay here again unless we knew there was a complete remodel and deep cleaning.

Check in was quick and easy. The room overlooks the Marina. Volleyball courts, unfortunately it was rainy and no one was playing, but a lot of cute dogs running around. Walked to The Cheesecake Factory for happy hour. Nice and close to LAX.

Horrible place
Horrible experience of my Life. Found ear cotton buds laying down on the floor under desk. When i called the front desk officer he just said apologisoes for that and didnt even bother to remove them. It took me 30min to regulate their water tempurate between burning hot and freezing Cold! Noisy music till 4am in the morning couldmt sleep all night and after sleeping at 5am and woke up late to checkout at 12:30pm they wanted to charge me 50$ for a late checkout which is supposed to be at 11pm! All these for 145$ a Night! U must be kidding me. Not.recommended to anyone! stay away from such louzy places
