“pleasant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Our "ocean view" room didn't actually give us a view of othe ocean; we san a small inlet of water contained by a rock wall, and the ocean was beyond the rock wall. Still, this is a pleasant place to stay, with a good restaurant within walking distance. If you choose to stay here, ask for a room in the upper levels, where you'll probaby get a better ocean view.

Thank you for the intuitive comments. We appreciate your point of view and will use these comments to better the hotel and our staff. We understand that some guests may not want to view the rock wall and therefore we do offer rooms on higher levels for optimal views. The rock wall is there for safety. We are so pleased you enjoyed the restaurant and its proximity to the hotel.

Please let us know if there is anything we can do to improve your future stay.

Have a happy holiday,

Actually a very nice location to look out at the ocean, although you will need to walk a ways to get to a beach (The hotel boarders up to the break walls). In addition, at certain times, the noise from the sea lions is unreal in the mornings (if you leave your doors open for the fresh breeze). Rooms are comfortable and the staff is friendly. Another 'drawback' is the hotel isn't really close to things like coffee shops, quick-type marts, etc. Breakfast next to the hotel is pretty good (the hotel's restaurant) - but again is pricey ($12-$17pp) for basic breakfast foods.

Room Tip: The rooms on the back of the hotel face the ocean - much nicer views than the front rooms. If you g...

The location of the hotel was nice, short drive from LAX after a long day of travelling. It was also nice to get up in the morning and run along the beach which is not too far away. I got in late and there was not much open within walking distance, so if arriving late stop and get some food and snacks before arriving, but don't plan on being able to use the mini fridge because it is sealed. That was a little frustrating. The staff was friendly and helpful as described in many of the reviews but it took two trips to get my key to work. The rooms are clean but definitely could use some updating. The bed was comfortable, but short. I think I had a double bed because my feet hung over the edge. I thought I was supposed to be getting a king bed. I was too tired to say anything due the all-day travelling. The best part of the stay was the shower. It was adjustable and was refreshing. Overall the hotel could use some freshening up, but it was a nice stay, I'm not sure if I would return though based on the price. It is priced like a 4 star hotel and feels like a 3 star.

Hello and thank you for the helpful feedback. We will use these remarks to better improve the hotel service and standards. We apologize that you were not told that the hotel staff could send up and replace your mini fridge with an empty refrigerator. We are happy to do so when guests request an empty unit. We understand that this is often the case. Thank you for the kind comments about our nice location and proximity to LAX. We are a great oasis from the city but really only about 6 miles away. We are pleased you enjoyed the shower as well. Thank you for your comments and we hope to serve you again soon.

Have a Happy Holiday!

We have stayed at the Portofino before. It is not far from our house.
The Inn has rooms directly above the water in the harbor so the views are outstanding. You awaken to the sound of Otto the sea lion, as you sit on the balcony you watch the pelicans and other sea birds fly by. Also you can watch the sailboats come and go and the daily paddleboarders as they paddle seemingly below your feet!
The rooms are appointed in nautical decor and have a nice tub and spa quality soaps and lotions.
There are bathrobes so you may sit and drink your coffee on your balcony without having to get up and dressed.
The hotel offers a nice pool and jacuzzi.
The restaurant Balleen is outstanding and has a nice happy hour.
Nice place to get away even if it's just a few miles away.

Thank you for the outstanding review and wonderful comments. We appreciate you taking the time to say such nice things about the hotel and BALEENkitchen. One of the most interesting aspects of the hotel is the stimulating activity that is visible from the hotel rooms. Our guests, much like you really enjoy watching the sailboats, paddle-boarders and seals passing by.

We hope that because you live close you are able to visit again.

This was a lovely spot, the hotel was clean and nice, great spot to look over the marina (Christmas Boat pararde) sea lions and marina. We really had fun, the breakfast was great!!!
The location was great for us because we wanted to go shopping rather than do the "LA thing". So headed to various malls, stocked up on goodies (clothes) for the rest of the trip.

Conveniently sandwiched in between Redondo Beach & Hermosa Beach, one can easily walk/bicycle to the beach and volleyball courts, etc. But you are NOT on the beach here as this place is really a hotel in a marina i.e. boat dock. The rooms are ample size, but hey no venting for the bathroom AND the small fitness center makes for a lot of unwanted heat and steam. Pool is tiny but the hot tub is actually running HOT! Staff is nice and pleasant lobby is wonderful. Seems like a wedding hotel gig. Had to request a light bult (come on) and more than 2 glasses in a room with 2 double beds. The WIFI which is only free in the lobby is horribly SLOW and while there are flat screen TV they're not in HDTV mode!

Room Tip: You pay up to be on the waterside but you're not going to see a beach but a rocky jetty. Save y...

The place is fantastic, close to Hermosa, Manhatan and all the Redondo Beach amenities. Bar Club Balee was the best!
Gym is rather precarious but who needs a fitness center at the beach?
Seals and Sea Lions, priceless!
