Do not be fooled by the rating, it is a 2 star at best. Run down and dirty. Yet they are charging over $300 per night. And to top it off, in the room they offer an extension of your stay for $40 per night. That gives you an idea of guest reactions once they arrive at the property.

Way too expensive for what you get. Valet parking is slow, and overpriced ($26 a night) - more than the website says. Staff polite, but inefficient - ask for the car at least twice, because they will ignore you the first time (happened twice). The wedding reception: gorgeous grounds, decent facilities, food so-so, meat was tough; service was abysmal (rude... More

I am so disappointed to hear that your experience was not up to our normally high standards. We are fortunate to have the only property in the area that is right on the water, yet I can understand how you would be displeased if you were expecting to be on a beach. While we usually get excellent reviews about our... More

The front desk staff is wonderful and the location is amazing. For the price, I expected the rooms to be a bit more modern/well kept. The property has some deferred maintenance issues (peeling paint, hot tub not working, a/c works - but not great).

My husband and I had a wonderful time at The Portofino in Redondo Beach. Jerome at the front desk was very accommodating and extremely helpful in making sure our room was perfect. We plan on returning soon.

I recently stayed in the hotel for a week. The staff and location make this hotel an excellent choice. Extremely helpful and courteous at all time. The pool area is a little small for the size of the hotel, but that is a minor detail. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel for anyone staying in the Southbay Beach... More

We stayed just one night at this hotel nestled in a lovely marina. If you're able to get a room with a view out to the ocean, it'll be a bonus. Seals frequently pop their heads up out of the water and sailboats drift by; very peaceful. And the sunset was awesome! The service was phenomenal from the moment we... More

Another great all day meeting with lunch. The Portofino is such a beautiful location and their catered banquet meals are always good. Afterward, we often go to Baleen for drinks and appetizers to enjoy unwinding from the day.

Attended a Board meeting today and have to commend the property for its excellent service and amazing food! No one could go hungry and everyone enjoyed the creative breakfast and lunch entrees.
