5 out of 5
Property overlooks the boardwalk/beach and is steps away from the town. good location. walked north in town to the crab catcher, thought it was closed but great octopus and other items. Back to the Pantai, breakfast was buffet but good choices, variety and we ate outside, put the screen mesh over your eggs, bacon ... or the seagulls will be right there. Mgmt is very friendly, helpful, espresso in the lobby.

Great location and wonderful, attentive staff!

So I meant to write this review awhile ago... I stayed at the Pantai Inn last year and it was the most wonderful hotel experience i think i have ever had! From our room, which was more like a suite since it had a living area and kitchen, we could see the ocean and a nice little park. You can easily walk around the area and down the coast to where sea lions are sunbathing just a few hundred feet away. After we checked in, 2 members of the staff carried our luggage up the outdoor staircase to our room(and i don't pack light). There we were delightfully surprised with a lovely bottle of wine and a note on out living room table wishing me a happy birthday (which was that day). It was a very nice, personal touch that we came to really appreciate from the staff at Pantai. The surrounding area was quiet at night and restaurants/shops were within walking distance. The bathroom and 4 post bed were beautifully adorned. Everything was true to the website pictures including a fireplace (ahh makes me smile just remembering it). We will definitely be returning when we are back on the West Coast! Thank you everyone at Pantai, esp Hazel who coordinated our reservation and made our trip very special! Sorry this review is late!!

The staff could not have been more warm and welcoming.  It is a wonderful gem right in the heart of La Jolla.  Suites are roomy and comfortable with all the latest amenities. Continental breakfast in the courtyard every morning.  It was a wonderful place.  Highly recommend it.
