“Beautiful hotel and location .”
Reviewed May 8, 2012 via mobile

Very customized personal service. Staff was beyond friendly and professional . We had the room closest to the ocean and it was beautiful. We had our two young boys with us and it was great but would be just as wonderful as a romantic couples get away. Loved this place and the location was walking distance to great restaurants and shopping.

I booked this hotel from a one-day special deal from Expedia and was totally surprised with the newly renovated rooms, excellent service and great location of Pantai Inn. The suite we had wasn't big but very nicely decorated and had everything one can ask for. Living room, large flat screen TV, fireplace, dinning room, full size stove & refrigerator, 2 rain showers, closet and a very comfortable pillow top bed. The location was great where we didn't need to drive.Traffic in La Jolla on the weekend can be very busy. All the restaurants were within walking distance. We walked along the beach, watched the squirrels and seals, enjoyed the sunset.

The hotel offered complimentary continental breakfast which was plenty perfect for us. They had cantaloupe and honeydew melon water which was refreshing. There were coffee and fruit in the lobby area throughout the day. They even had complimentary wine, chocolate and a hand-written thank you note which was a very nice personal touch to their guests and really made us feel welcomed. Everyone we met working there was very pleasant and friendly. Overall a great experience and we'd definitely will stay there again!

Our family chose the Pantai Inn in La Jolla for a long weekend stay and were delighted with the accomodation and the hospitality. Great location across from the ocean. The suite was fresh, clean, and beautifully maintained. Excellent staff - so accomodating and helpful, we felt very welcomed. We will definitely go back.

This is a newly renovated Inn. It more than exceeded my expectations. The rooms are all suites and very large. It was more than a suite, it was like a smaller home! The staff goes out of their way to be accommodating, as you would imagine in Bali. It is an exceptionally clean inn, both inside the room and the exterior property. Continental breakfast is included with the room rate. Has a full kitchen, including microwave, dishwasher.... everything you would have at home. Linens and room touches are top quality. Technology in the rooms is the best I've seen. It is located across from the beach and walking distance to everything. You can walk to shopping, restaurants, yoga, and the beach. Photos on the web site are accurate. This is a true gem. I will be back!

Room Tip: A room with a partial view is spectacular. I was in room 202, which is a one bedroom suite. The liv...

I took my mom here as a surprise for some R&R. Simply put: beautiful. Home away from home. Exquisite furnishings and superb detail. Of course the La Jolla ocean front does not disappoint. I understand that the Inn is still in the process of being renovated, I can't imagine how beautiful it will be- since it is already such a gem!! The lobby is small and quaint, with beautiful furnishings. Upon check in, I specified that we would like Moscato wine. They didn't have it, so the Manager went out and purchased some. A+ SERVICE!!! We stayed in room number 102. We could see the ocean from the windows in the living room, and master bedroom. The living room has a pull out bed, and it was super comfy. I loved the copper sink in the kitchen and in the bathroom. The bathroom shower (2 heads and one handheld) = divine! I would ABSOLUTELY stay here again, and in the near future!

Room Tip: You can't go wrong in any of the rooms

Can't say enough about this beautiful Inn. The decor, the staff, the location, the views, the linens, the stone work, the bottle of wine at check-in, the chocolates at night, the coffee bar all day....every little detail was perfect. We (Mom, 13 & 15 yr olds) were there for 5 nights and would have loved to stay longer. It is the perfect location with the ocean on one side and the quaint La Jolla village on the back side. Can walk to many restaurants and shops. I was even able to see a few other units when the owner took time out of her busy day to show me around. Fabulous! The staff was incredible all week, but they really went above and beyond when I realized I had forgotten my wedding rings back in the room after we were at the airport. Less than 24 hours later, they arrived in WI. THANK YOU!!!

Room Tip: I think all untis are wonderful, but if we go back again, I would request units 102 or 202. Spectul...

My family and I had a wonderful time at this inn. The business manager, Bernardo was exceptional as well as the staff. We stayed in the 3 bedroom house which gave us ample room for our family of 5. We loved having our own kitchen because eating out every meal with children is not always reasonable. We would have liked to have had more accommodations for children, specifically infants. There were no cribs available to use so we purchased a portable crib from a nearby Target which worked fine, but was a bit inconvenient. We were a bit disappointed with the showers in our room, but nothing to ruin our trip. The master room shower didn't work well nor was it a very nice shower to bathe in. Something like a fine operating and warm shower goes a long way when traveling, especially with children. The littlest things can make it a great experience. While it does not have a pool, it does have very easy access to the beach which was great! It would be nice though, if the inn could partner with another nearby hotel or the La Jolla Country Club to have use of their pool. We understood from staff that the inn is going under a bit of construction with the addition of a spa and more rooms. We highly recommend this inn and would like to come again when the spa and other amenities are open and operating. Again, thanks to Bernardo and his staff!
