What a wonderful place!
What a wonderful place! Marvelous location, right across from the street from the ocean near the Children's Pool and La Jolla Coves. We sat out on our balcony and listened to the waves. ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!

6/10 Good

The location is great! We loved being directly across from the ocean with beautiful views. Parking was a bit of an issue as construction was going on most of the week we spent at Pantai… we paid $20.00 per day for parking that was largely taken by 4-5 construction vehicles each day, it was a little annoying. We’d leave in the morning to head out for a little adventure and return to shower & get ready for dinner, etc and have to fight to find parking since parking is so limited (and being used by the construction workers). It seems to me, the hired help should have limited access to the parking lot that guests have paid for… Lots of construction going on when we were there… lots of workers and lots of noise. It’s great that they are making updates, however, not so great when “surprise” workers are on your balcony for a day or two making lots of noise AND you unknowingly lose access to your balcony! Hmmmmmm. The room was a bit musty smelling and could definitely use some modern updates. The outside of the hotel is much nicer than our actual room. The pull out couch (my daughter had to use) was old, worn out and less than comfortable. The interior patio area outside the main lobby area was very nice. We actually sat out there and enjoyed the sunshine one beautiful morning. Overall, the hotel is ok. I mean the location is awesome! You’re paying more for the location than the amenities of the hotel. You get what you pay for…

8/10 Very good

Property was beautiful and staff were super friendly and courteous, excellent service. The only thing i didn’t like was the windows were stuck shut...i wanted to be able to hear the ocean but was unable too. Talked with the staff and they had painted the building and was stuck shut...that was the only thing i didn’t like.

Too much noise with auto and walkers outside my room at night. Also metal workers working on a balcony nearby making noise.
