We enjoyed the good service, handwritten notes and very personal touch. Nice view and location. Delicious breakfast. The only thing is that the sofabed is not very comfortable - if you are only 2 persons sleeping in the bedroom nothing could be better

The location and service are what makes this hotel a winner. We stayed in an ocean view room. Everyone on staff strives to make your stay exceptional. The Balanese rooms are tasteful and elegant. Comfy beds, chocolates, and a relaxing patio are bonuses. Sunset views!

Pantai Inn is located on an unbelievable stretch of the California coast. Within a few hundred yards of the Children's Pool where seals are lying on the sand and La Jolla Cove where sea lions come face to face with people, it's a remarkable location. I can't say enough how special the location is. In addition, we were able to...
