Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin
Reviewed 1 August 2016

The room was spacious and clean, and the bed very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Being as close as it was to downtown LA it was awesome. The beach was clean and for food there is a Cheese Cake Factory restaurant right next to the hotel.

We had a change of plans and foghorn was the hotel we chose to stay. Room was clean and tidy. Cable tv was good quality and room a generous size. Walls had good sound buffering qualities in comparison to other hotels experienced. Unsure where other reviewers got dated from unless they were expecting the marriot across the way. Complimentary breakfast...

We stayed two nights in February on our way to the UK and again on our return in March. We have booked to stay again in December and will do so for our January return.

Upon arrival, we were surprised to find that, despite the fact that we had requested a queen or king-size bed, our room had one full-size bed. The linens were nice. The room was small in size, but looked out on the Marina, and the view was really nice, which we appreciated. This is a clean hotel which could use some...

Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to post your review. I don't believe we have any rooms that have just one full-size bed. There are two full size or one King. Either a California King or regular King. I will check with the manager and see if this was some kind of a fluke. Glad you...

The Foghorn Inn a motel from yesteryear nicely kept up. It is right on the public beach which for me was a plus. The room had everything you needed including a patio in our case, microwave , mini fridge, good mattress. I travel with my own pillow so can't say about that. The folks at the front desk were helpful,...

The hotel manager is ok. I don't consider Foghorn Harbor Inn Hotel is a hotel. It is more like motel. It got an old hdtv. I could not control or make some changes on tv. The a/c is very noisy. The refrigerator is not cold at all. The temperature control may be broken. The room was not ready by late...

It's nice to hear that you thought the manager was okay. It sounds like you weren't happy with any other part of your stay. We are an older establishment and that is the main reason we have so many complimentary amenities. Bet you won't find many, if any, places with free parking and transportation to and from LAX.
