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 Only thing is outdated.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.

Primary good service. Room was covered by chipped paint, too small single paned window, bird doo on the picture window, rusted bar sink, and a bathroom that you can touch the toilet, sink, and tub from one place. Not worthy of $400 plus per night. And, if you have mobility issues, such as arthritic knees, specify this at time of booking as there is no elevator.

The people that works at the front desk are really nice. But the room that we had I believe is 205 ( one of the ocean front room), the living room sofa is really old and I actually don’t feel comfortable sitting on it so I need to placed towels on the sofa. The carpet is old as well, I would prefer wooden floor. The bathroom faucet needs deep cleaning, soap scum! We stayed during the Covid time. We are healthy after our stay but I was a bit afraid. The location is great, but with too many tourists right in front of your door steps. The hotel needs a lot of update. I think I would still prefer staying at Coronado island area. I am sorry to say that I will not come back to this hotel.

As advertised, the room we booked had a great view of the La Jolla Bay. It was centrally located, close to nice restaurants and coastal sights. However, the room was not ready when we arrived in the late afternoon. The staff was apologetic and allowed us to park for free. We were disappointed to learn that breakfast was no longer served due to Covid. Our room was comfortable but the bathroom was very small with no racks to hang our wet towels. During the night we could hear the guests above us walking around.

Greetings swmobc47, Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write a review. We strive to give our guest a 10 out of 10 experience and my apologies we missed the mark for your stay. With COVID-19 restrictions we are taking extra care to sanitize rooms and unfortunately, things like breakfast buffets are not permitted. Please be advised some of the restrooms have a wet towel hook on the back of the restroom door. We hope to get the opportunity to show you what we are all about another time. Kind Regards, Taylor
