Stayed here one night thanks to a third part site (Priceline). Saved some money... gave it all back on self-parking for $27. Empty lot they don't even patrol. Was told I didn't even need to put up my pass after I paid? So why the $27? I hate rip-offs. This is a 50 year old motel right on the water... More

Just checked in after a long week of business travel and was greeted by the most customer focused team of professionals helping me navigate through some mistakes I made when booking my trip. Claire and Julia helped me with my room, while correcting the situation that I created in seconds turning a potentially negative evening into the most positive experience... More

I've stayed at this hotel several times. It never disappoints me. It has a European flair...like your at Cannes. The rooms were great....I had a Jacuzzi room once...very nice...and a huge suite once that overlooked the entire ocean w lovely view. I attended a wedding here and it was nice and held outside by the pool, then for the reception,... More

Check in and overall customer service at the Portofino was exceptional. The ocean view from our room was also very nice. The room was pretty small though, and the bed not that comfortable. The bathroom was also tiny and...the shower/tub combo was like the 'leaning tower of pisa'. Not bad at first but when the shampoo and conditioner get going... More

Paid for marina view room with breakfast. In the first room the faucet did not work properly. We requested a change in room. In the second room the tub had trouble draining. The anti slip mat in the tub was old and dirty and the shower needed to be turned off halfway through to allow time for the tub to... More

I have stayed here before and loved the experience. This time however my stay wasn't as pleasant. I had a first floor room right off the lobby. The room was small, the furniture was rough and the elevator noise was awful. The room didn't have a clock of any sort. No mirrors that showed below mid chest height. The thing... More

My husband and I stayed here as part of our honeymoon trip up and down the California coast. When Jerome found out it was our honeymoon, he upgraded our room to water view and sent up a bottle of champagne. The staff were all very helpful. We took bikes for a long ride down the strip to many beaches. The... More

I recently visited for a business meeting and found the Portofino to be rather nice. The Harbor room in the main building was a nice size and the food was very good. Easy to get to, plenty of parking and warm friendly smiles at the check in desk. A little oasis in Redondo Beach, who knew?

I booked the Portofino as I was conducting business in the area. Upon arrival there was a hiccup in the availability of the room which I booked, however, Claire immediately addressed my concerns. The room & ocean view were amazing. Throughout my stay the demeanor of the staff staff was professional and courteous. Special thanks to Lisa, at the front... More
