It took me three hours to drive 38 miles on a Friday afternoon, so I was pretty happy to finally arrive at Portofino. The check-in clerk honored my request for an amazing, yet quiet room (there were two weddings that weekend) and checked me in to Room 363. The room was clean and comfortable, with a table and chairs on the balcony overlooking the water. Lots of paddle boarding going on, and the sea lions kept up their conversations the whole time I was there.
Had a memorable dinner at Baleen, and went back twice more, for drinks and for breakfast. Check out the three firepit tables outside - very nice to have your feet in the sand while eating tasty food.
Loved the lobby, with its soaring ceiling and window seats - curled up in one to finish reading a book, and parked myself there for awhile the next morning just to watch people come and go. The bar was not open the hours I was there but it would be a nice space to have a drink.
Everyone I came in contact with was helpful and friendly. Was a nice weekend getaway.
