Stayed here for a four-day weekend and stayed in a king suite. Wonderful room and friendly service. With COVID, I wanted a room with a dining area for take away orders, which our room had. Very comfortable seating area and nice bed. Within walking distance to plenty of dining options and the coast is right across the street. Also, was able to park right outside our room and check out through the TV in the seating area. Bathroom is also large with three shower options--rain shower head coming from the ceiling, fixed shower head on one wall and handheld shower head on another wall. Good water pressure.
The photos don't begin to do this place justice. Not only do you get a one bedroom HOUSE all to yourself, you get the most glorious spa tub and dual head standup shower as well! I had my eye on this room for months before staying there and was BLOWN AWAY by this room!
A friend and I shared a two-bedroom oceanfront room for three nights at the Pantai Inn. We loved the location, the open layout of the living room, dining area with its large round glass table, the kitchen, sun room, and convenient parking by the door. The staff was friendly, helpful, and responsive to our requests. The lobby has complimentary water and soft beverages as well as large long-stemmed wine glasses for guest use. A limited number of good wines are for sale. The outside seating area is inviting with wonderful ocean views. Between mid-May to mid-December pregnant seals and sea lions give birth in a protected cove, a three-minute walk from the Inn. We watched in awe each day as baby seals and sea lions were born. Stairs leading up from the inn lead to La Jolla Village's main street where shopping and restaurants are plentiful. Location is terrific. The Inn needs a little work to earn an overall 5-star rating. The owners should upgrade the rooms to ensure they are suitable for occupancy. Our front windows needed cleaning, the coffeemaker had a layer of dust and did not look clean, the sun room blinds fell to the floor, all the sofa and chair cushions were worn, the furniture was scratched, and the bedroom door leading outside was stuck. It took a bit of force to push it open. Staff was quick to clean the windows upon our request. This should have been done before our arrival, and someone should have checked all appliances to ensure their cleanliness and operability. The kitchen is functional, equipped with silverware and place settings for four; however, there are no condiments, including salt, or paper towels provided. This may be helpful to know before shopping. That said, my friend and I would stay at the Pantai Inn again without hesitation. Next time I will ask staff to ensure that the windows and appliances are clean. Some of my friends and family would be happy to stay here; others are more discerning travelers and might find the worn furniture unacceptable. I enjoyed the Pantai Inn and want to see it continue to succeed. I hope these improvements will be considered.…
Perfectly located practically on the beach. Amazing views. Seals to the left. Sea lions to the right. The staff are amazing and it was very clean and safe. The rooms are a bit dated but very large and have everything you need.
We just finished moving out of our home and needed REST. We stayed for two nights of luxury and renewal at this amazing resort that takes you to a special place to restore mind, body and spirit. YES we will return because it's so magical and the staff is SUPERB!
