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...

My husband booked us to stay at the Pantai Inn, for our last 4-5 days of our honeymoon travels :-). We were able to leave our baggage @ the hotel ahead of room being available (whilst we had to return our RV) & later, it was taken to our room for us. They also phoned us to say our room... More

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

We couldn't have had a better experience. The staff was great, the room was incredible. Our flight got us in a little early, and our room wasn't quite ready.

Pantai Inn is top ranked for a reason ... actually several. First, the location simply cannot be beat. Right on the ocean, steps from the stairs that lead down to Shell Beach, and a short two minute walk to the sea lion beach (or are they seals ... We never figured that out). And when you get hungry?
