Great staff; fabulous apartment on the beach; free goodies in room and at reception WOW!

The staff was very friendly and made you feel like family.

Enjoyed our stay Good recommendations for restaurants Loved the Bali bathroom design

We live in S.D. & LaJolla is a favorite place, for us, to spend time. I have often thought I would like to stay at Pantai - it just seemed inviting. With our anniversary coming up soon & a big surgery for my husband - I just thought "why not?". So glad I did. It was even better than I imagined. The staff was excellent- Daniel was especially helpful. We had a one bedroom suite - directly across from the ocean. The rooms were very quiet, considering the vehicle & foot traffic. La Jolla is very walkable & there is much to do. But, we were looking for a quiet weekend, before our very busy summer begins. We couldn't have been happier & although, we are only 30 minutes away - Pantai will be our choice for " a quick get away"

lovely view. great place to watch the sunset. bed is comfy. staff were very nice and the breakfast was better than most hotels/inns.

Staff was very attentive. This place puts forth the extra effort to make your stay enjoyable.

From the moment we landed, we got a text from Mike, the general manager, with a greeting - which was a nice personal touch. They accommodated an early check-in and when we arrived, was greeted by friendly staff that showed us to our room after explaining all the amenities. Our suite was spacious and had a great view!

Great location but smelt like dirty, sweaty bodies. Bring room spray from Bath and Body Works, it helped! We asked for a wake up call which they never did, luckily the cell phone alarm was enough to wake us up in time to catch our flight. They never emailed our recipt either. Nice water features on the grounds and small but free parking.

Our stay at the hotel was awesome. Great location right by the beach. Breakfast was wonderful. I would stay again here for our next visit to la jolla,

Absolutely lovely inn. So welcoming, beautiful, and fantastic location. We are making this an annual destination.

Location is excellent for meditation and gratification for anything that life has given us for today ,tomorrow and yesterday.

Hotel has perfect location, just cross the cove and you can swim with sea lions! We had partial view ocean room, Very romantic place, fab. Shower ( I wish I saw it before I did my bathroom:) Staff is friendly, breakfast was ok we also cook eggs and add used their fruits and bagels for the breakfast. Fabulous patio with fantastic view. Now the bad part: carpet in the room was so filty, A/C was not working, we notifed them since first night, they kept telling us, "wait for a while". I believe they knew it. Matress was so bad, almost we were sleeping in a hammock. I still have back pain, and using ibrufen. Because of all these I give 3 star to this place. Next time I look for somewhere else.

A GEM!!!! I wanted rest, relaxation & luxury. I got everything and more. I have travelled thru Europe & this hotel ranks with the best anywhere. Fabulous, comfortable rooms, fully equipped kitchen, abundant continental breakfast, beautiful courtyard, and right across the street from the most spectacular views in La Jolla. The staff is top notch, knowledgeable & so accommodating for the traveller unfamiliar to the area. I will definitely be returning!! LOVE, LOVE LOVE THE PANTAI INN!!

From outside it looks like a old beach house but, inside was fully updated with new stuff. Very good location in La Jolla. You can walk within 5 min for dining to swiming or walking to park. Full kitchen was plus and nice beds. House keeping twice a day was real nice. All the hotel staffs was helpful and nice. Yes, I'll be back again!!!
