We stayed here last March 25-27, 2014. My husband found this hotel online since he wanted a hotel near the La Jolla shores where i can walk around while he is out working. Boy was a glad he found this nice boutique hotel. I just love the fact that you just have to cross this small road and your already... More

Charm, beauty, warmth, location, peace, character and cleanliness! Clearly, I'm in love with Pantai and I've stayed everywhere in La jolla. Pantai is located right on The Park that runs right along the prettiest part of the ocean in LJ. You will walk to the front of this jewel line property and be where everybody staying in some big bland... More

Let me start by saying that the Pantai Inn checks all the boxes for a Southern California experience. It is on the Pacific coastline…and one has to cross a small 2 lane street in order to be on the cliffs of the Pacific. It is amazing! I don't even know where to start with this little gem. OK…I'll start with... More

My husband and I are so looking forward to coming back here again next year. It is a lovely, well-run inn right in La Jolla cove. You have it all right outside your door - the seals and sea lions, the park, the spectacular cliffs and beautiful blue-green churning waves, the surfers and those crazy folks who swim in 55-degree...

What an exceptional hotel. This is not your cookie cutter chain-type establishment but an INCREDIBLE destination lodge---on the cliffs of La Jolla, CA. I mean, you are right there at the ocean (not on the beach-you are on one side of the street and the ocean is on the other). You drive up and think, what is this place? But... More

It is a fully functional small apartment, much more than just a bed and breakfast place. The lovely decorated lobby brings you to Bali, with fresh orchard, welcoming coffee, tea and fresh fruit in iced water. The apt.
