My husband and I have stayed at Pantai Inn now twice in the past few months. It's the best kept secret in La Jolla! Beautiful rooms and the best location on the coast. Plus the people in the reception room are so nice and friendly and helpful. We love the place and can't wait to come back. It's a good... More

It started with the incredible service given to us by Alfred who took our reservation by phone. He was patient with me, explaining all of the rooms and our options. When the room we wanted wasn't available, we were disappointed but booked anyway. Alfred followed up with me and made me feel better about our reservation and when the room... More

I cannot recommend this hotel enough! The hotel consists of a few buildings all grouped together on the street right across from the ocean. I booked an ocean view queen room and my views were amazing. Every night, people gather along the sidewalk to watch the magnificent sunset, and I could watch from my comfortable balcony. There are so many... More

I stayed at the Pantai Inn for one weekend in January and I absolutely loved it. The room was clean and comfortable with a killer view. The bathroom was pretty small but the bedroom was quite spacious, and the balcony was very nice. I really liked that there was a door and stairwell on the balcony with access to Coast... More

I just watched this evenings sunset on the mighty Pacific Ocean from my second story patio. We walked back from the Shiku Sushi, poured a cup of tea and watched the sky go orange and red. We have a nice kitchen, a very cool indoor, rock and tile 'surfer' shower via Bali and an Indonesian four post bed. There are... More

Dear BonefishBrian, Since we deal primarily with the vacation traveler, we’ve came to the understanding vacationing is an art form. Not the type of art form someone will be able to learn in school, but the type of art that speaks from the deep part of our souls innate ability to take in the “now” and truly feel what nature...

Went with some friends to San Diego and decided to stay in La Jolla. We had a oceanside room with a bedroom, a Murphy bed, and a sofa. Plenty of places for people to crash. Everything was simple, yet elegant. The room had a fireplace, which was perfect after an evening of watching the sun setting. Plenty of great restaurants... More
