“Great Honeymoon Location”
Reviewed August 31, 2014

We got married in Las Vegas, and decided to take our honeymoon in La Jolla. After seeing the many great reviews we decided to stay at the Pantai Inn in La Jolla, California. We had an ocean view suite which lived up to it's promise of a great ocean view. The room was recently remodeled and was very comfortable. There is a beautiful patio area which you can enjoy a good continental breakfast with an ocean view or go inside and walk up to a inside balcony for the same great view. Easy walk to the beach, shops, and restaurants/bars. Then this area and a few others converts into a relaxing place to enjoy the evening with heated lamps and fire pits. We happen the met the vice president of thee Pantai Inn Corporation at breakfast one morning and when he found out it was our honeymoon, he had the staff bring us a bottle of wine and some chocolates on the house. Would most definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Definitely get an ocean view room.

What a perfect little boutique hotel! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the Pantai Inn. The staff was magnificent and gracious. We loved being able to walk everywhere in La Jolla. Next time we're out west, we will definitely stay here again.

We celebrated our anniversary at the Pantai and it was a perfect choice. The inn overlooks the ocean and with its exotic decor we felt like we were in Bali or Hawaii. All staff was extremely helpful and friendly. When booking our room Katrina explained the different room options and upgraded us to a studio with a balcony-magnificent ocean view. It was one of the newer units- Rm. 322 and overlooks La Jolla cove and beach. There are fountains & carvings throughout the grounds which are very well maintained and even a fire pit .
Staff went over and above to accomodate guests from recommendations of restaurants and shops to presenting the best fresh breakfast(included w/ rm.) Also parking is free(unliike downtown where we paid $38/day). The location is excellent and we walked to restaurants and shops.
We were so pleased w/ the Pantai Inn that we extended our visit and stayed an extra day! This is the best place and I highly reccomend it. Hope to return.

Room Tip: Ocean view is worth it!

We found this hotel on trip advisor and are glad we did. Along the water and very close ( about two min walk) to all of the main restaurants and shopping. Each little suite is different-ours had a shower room and huge Jacuzzi tub. Some have fireplaces and full kitchens. Ours had view of the water and we could hear the waves through our patio doors. The complimentary breakfast had fresh fruit and yogurt. The staff are super friendly and the owner happened to be here and gave me a tour of the rooms. It is pricey, $450 a night but it was a fun splurge. There was free laundry facilities here as well which was very appreciated. Highly recommend

The Pantai Inn, adjacent to the Pacific Ocean in La Jolla, CA, provides exceptional facilities, fine services, and a wonderful staff. Our 2-bedroom, 2-bath suite was ideal for four of us. Although the room did not have ocean views (book early!), the breakfast patio and fire pit had ocean views and lots of friendly sea gulls. The facilities were updated, the breakfasts were excellent, coffee and snacks were ever-present, the staff was both nice and efficient, and the prices struck us as fair. The location was superb, with walking access to the ocean, restaurants, and shops. The Balinese touches added to the experience.

Room Tip: If you want an ocean VIEW, book early!

It was a beautiful hotel from the moment we pulled in I knew It would be an exceptional experience.
I stayed with family, in a partial view to the ocean, rooms were well maintained, everyone was very polite and helpful, at breakfast time they have a delicious variety buffet, Fernando was SUPER friendly,attentive, and we'll maintained all stocked. My family have already talked about staying here again and of course bringing more family and friends along. Thank you for all your services and the escape you gave me.

This was our second stay at the Pantai Inn and we'll go back again. The rooms are very big. We stayed in a two bedroom, two bath plus full kitchen and front room and there was plenty of room for the four of us. Beach access is right across the street. It's walking distance to the restaurants. Staff is friendly, accommodating and hospitable. Room rate is worth it for what you're getting. I did a lot of hotel comparisons before we booked our stay. No parking fees is a plus. Continental breakfast is nice.
