We checked into a one bedroom suite with an ocean view to kill for. The sound of the waves will make one at peace and easy to sleep. Immediately we regretted staying for only one night as we wished for more. The service staff were very attentive and caring from check in to check out. They would ask if we... More

The location is great, the décor is great, but one thing stands above everything. The gentleman named Alfred Lopez went out of his way to help me get settled into the hotel. He is an outstanding person with lots of character. I would recommend this hotel to anyone I meet. -Richard

First, the Pantai Inn sits on what might be some of the most expensive real estate in all of California. Downtown La Jolla - just steps from park at La Jolla Cove and Children's Pool (where the seals hang out). No place is closer to the ocean than the Pantai. If the only thing the inn had going for it... More

5 star location 5 star service 2 star room decor 2 star shampoo 5 star parking Advice for travelers: Call the hotel and tell them your priorities. View, space, kitchen in room, accessible, kid-friendly, quiet? All the rooms are different. Some have convenient parking (all have free parking :-) ), some have great views, some are family-friendly. Most have low-rent... More

From the moment our reservations were made, Nina(staff) was very gracious and accommodating. Every attention to detail made this stay very memorable.

The Pantai Inn was a lovely hotel. The accommodations and view were impeccable. Alfred Lopez provided excellent service one evening during our stay and went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and had what we wanted. I will definitely be back to the Pantai Inn.

We found the Pantai Inn on Hotel Tonight, the best app we've ever downloaded. We were winging it after canceling a reservation at another hotel. It was after 6 pm and we were getting anxious to find somewhere else to stay. Best travel decision ever! The room had a partial ocean view, a fireplace, a full kitchen, gorgeous bathroom and...

I mean this is the spot to go if you want to avoid the bulk, cold hotelish feels of staying in SD. Whether its the super friendly and non imposing staff or the perfectly decorated rooms/grounds, the general vibe here is peaceful.
