We've booked hundreds of rooms in our lives and no experience has been more frustrating than spending NINE hours of my day today to try to get someone to return my call or email to cancel my reservation on the last day of refund eligibility. I even resorted to calling their parent company and nearby hotels, fearing that perhaps there was something terrible happening at the property. Then, on my 22nd call attempt, at 4:30pm, I'm greeted by a snippy woman with zero empathy who was as curt as I'd expect given the day long neglect. I mean, here was the chance for an employee to be a hero and "turn us around" on the awful experience, but nope. Not even close. Who knows, maybe they had a legit reason that all contact channels were all down?! Needless to say, we will NEVER book a room here. EVER.

This is a beautiful property. We loved our accommodations. Highly recommend. The little apartments are very comfortable. We enjoyed the fire pit. My parents had a waterfront room with beautiful big windows to enjoy the view. We couldn’t have been happier.

This property has a mix of rooms, apartments and cottage which are ideally located across Coast Drive and the ocean. I've stayed here before for business and there is a wonderful ambiance in the center courtyard and the front desk staff offer 5 star service in many respects. Unfortunately this trip left us quite disappointed with the dated accommodations and the very high cost of our 3 night stay. Excited with booking ocean view room with outside patio! Second floor unit 210: 1 bedroom apartment in an older brown shingled building with an unimpeded view of the Pacific Ocean. However inside, the dated carpets, small bathroom, bedroom and kitchen could have been mistaken for a Motel 6. The bathroom sinks didn’t drain on first use but front desk staff responding promptly. The single bedroom at the rear of the building had views of the garbage and recycling bins with detracted from the front room ocean view. Early morning air conditioner fans outside made sleep difficult. We can’t thank the very dedicated front desk hostess and staff for their efforts. However at $1828 for our 3 night visit left one feeling robbed. Another hiccup after returning home: credit card charged $3405. Mistaken double billing corrected after calling. It’s unfortunate that this beautifully located property with a dedicated staff; one of a half dozen properties under a single ownership doesn’t receive the investment and maintenance it deserves. We hope to return to La Jolla soon but will stay elsewhere.

We loved our stay at Pantai Inn. The excellent location is right on the coast in La Jolla, walking distance from great restaurants such as Puesta and Cantania. It is a nice property with great artistic touches and the exceptional staff are friendly and happy to help. Morning room service is very reasonably priced and they have a nice selection of wines so you can enjoy a bottle while watching the sunset from the balcony. As noted in other reviews, the rooms could use an update. Some of the furniture is dated, but it is not unlike living in an older seaside home. I see there are notes from the inn that they have updates planned, which will be welcomed, but I would gladly stay here again whether or not they update the furnishings. I hope they keep all of the great art. Overall, we found Pantai Inn comfortable and convenient and always felt relaxed in the room taking in the soothing sights and sounds of the ocean. Looking forward to returning.

Unbeatable location. Very pleasant staff. Only thing is outdated. Would likely need a face lift. I feel the location surely makes up for the cosmetic need. Easy checking and out. Very clean overall. I will go their again when in the area.
