We got married in Las Vegas, and decided to take our honeymoon in La Jolla. After seeing the many great reviews we decided to stay at the Pantai Inn in La Jolla, California. We had an ocean view suite which lived up to it's promise of a great ocean view. The room was recently remodeled and was very comfortable. There... More

What a perfect little boutique hotel! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the Pantai Inn. The staff was magnificent and gracious. We loved being able to walk everywhere in La Jolla. Next time we're out west, we will definitely stay here again.

We found this hotel on trip advisor and are glad we did. Along the water and very close ( about two min walk) to all of the main restaurants and shopping. Each little suite is different-ours had a shower room and huge Jacuzzi tub. Some have fireplaces and full kitchens. Ours had view of the water and we could hear... More

The Pantai Inn, adjacent to the Pacific Ocean in La Jolla, CA, provides exceptional facilities, fine services, and a wonderful staff. Our 2-bedroom, 2-bath suite was ideal for four of us. Although the room did not have ocean views (book early!), the breakfast patio and fire pit had ocean views and lots of friendly sea gulls. The facilities were updated,... More

This was our second stay at the Pantai Inn and we'll go back again. The rooms are very big. We stayed in a two bedroom, two bath plus full kitchen and front room and there was plenty of room for the four of us. Beach access is right across the street. It's walking distance to the restaurants. Staff is friendly,... More

Let me start by saying this was our second stay at the Pantai Inn in the last four months....and this visit was even better than the first. First and foremost, the location is absolutely the best in all of La Jolla; facing the Pacific, across from the park, with all of the restaurants and bars a block away. Next, the... More

My wife and I visit La Jolla twice a year for medical treatments, and have always used the Best Western Inn By The Sea. We’ve reviewed it positively in the past and continue to think it’s a great value ... for a hotel. On our most recent visit, involving an extended stay, we chose the Pantai Inn because we wanted...

Our two bedroom beautifully decorated suite, was spacious, with all the modern conveniences like internet, full kitchen and a sun room. Attention to detail is at its highest level with the staff, and the grounds are impeccably manicured. Water fountains are... More

We stayed 6 nights from 21st July and enjoyed every minute. The location is perfect and the staff charming and helpful in equal measure.
