We had the largest two-bed room suite, room 101. Only issue is the window shade, I addressed to the general manager, Edwin. He contacted me he would take it as his priority to replace the defective blind. Pantai Inn is located at La Jolla Cove. We enjoyed the ocean breezing while seating at balcony. The breakfast was great with a few of hot choice and fresh fruit. Parking is $25 per vehicle. The kitchenette had an oversize refrigerator, burner cooktop, and microwave. Rooms are comfortable and we had a pleasant stay at Pantai Inn.

This lovely little oasis has a friendly staff and an amazing location. The rooms were literally spotless... even down to the wine glasses. We loved staying here and would come again! We especially loved the courtyard and the cold waters and soft drinks.

Exquisite décor, clean and cozy. We stayed for 4 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The location is also excellent! Loved the fireplace and we used the full kitchen. The bathroom was also classy. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Can’t get much better of a location in La Jolla. If you have a view of the water it will be great. This Inn has so much potential but, sadly, has been neglected and is not being run very well today. There is clearly a need for repairs and updates around the property. We had the largest suite on property and it was average but has the potential to be spectacular. We received no housekeeping, nor notice that we wouldn’t, during our entire stay. When we asked if they had breakfast in the morning the front desk response was “sometimes”. Parking is extremely limited and tight, something to be aware of. I can’t say you will go wrong with this Inn given it’s location but beware that it’s in need of TLC and support staff.

Very helpful and accommodating staff! We had a better-than-expected view and a very large unit with a full kitchen. Great location and walking distance to everything you could want…..shops, restaurants, the beach (seals!). Tip: call ahead to see if early check in is available and parking may be a little tight, but it all will work out. Very quiet for sleeping and our only regret is that we couldn’t stay longer! Will definitely be back!

This was our 5th time staying at the Pantai Inn. The last time we stayed was in Feb 2020 right before COVID squashed travelling. Since then the hotel has come under new management. No longer serving breakfast and no housekeeping. We stayed in room 204 which was our least favorite of the rooms we have stayed in. I can't blame that on them, it was all that was available when we booked. The bathroom, kitchen and bedroom are small and hard to navigate. The view is minimal and there is no balcony. Just know this rooms limitations if you book 204. The staff is nice and they do your laundry for free, just know it will be washed and dryed but not folded so you want to be available when it's delivered so you can fold it before it gets wrinkled, Not a complaint, we were very grateful to have our laundry done after 6 days of travelling. I love La Jolla and have always enjoyed staying at the Pantai Inn and I'm hoping to stay there again, albeit in a different room and after they resume some of the amenities they used to provide under the previous owners

I stayed at this property for my birthday weekend celebration. From my very first contact with this property, the customer service I received was exceptional! I made a couple phone calls prior to arrival and each interaction was equally pleasant and accommodating. I received thorough information and all the relevant details to make the check-in and stay a seamless process. Edwin Z, the General Manager, was extremely helpful in providing excellent recommendations for activities that made my birthday celebration a complete success! From extra linens, to dining recommendations, the staff was always willing to fill our requests and provide helpful information. The property is in a perfect location and was clean and well kept. It made me feel like I was on an island getaway. The room was very spacious and the kitchenette was convenient for snacks and refreshments. I especially liked the nice touch of the bath robes. The balcony provided a perfect vista for the stunning evening sunsets across the horizon. Shopping, services and restaurants are all close by. Walking along the boardwalk to the sounds of the waves was the perfect relaxation I was hoping to find. Thank you, Pantai Inn, for an awesome stay!

A great place to stay to end a busy week. The staff was great as was the room. We acted on the staff recommendations to eat at The Cottage for breakfast and Puesto for dinner. Both were excellent recommendations. An afternoon in the sunshine laying on provided beach towels was exactly what we needed. Checking in early wa not a problem and the open lobby was a great place to hang out.

The Staff was pleasant and the outdoor sitting area was relaxing. Sleeping was not possible one night as the doors rattled from the wind. While the view was beautiful from the studio , there was barely room enough to move about. Beware, the final bill was never sent as stated and when it was requested, it did not match what was charged on the credit card. The manager was most unhelpful in resolving this issue,
