All the rooms have an ocean view!! This one has a private beach access as well. Good breakfast and decent rooms. The pool was heated and there are two jacuzzis. The place is close to piano restaurants and SLO downtown.

I almost don't want to give it the five stars so I can keep this place to myself and not let everyone know how wonderful this place is. The staff is wonderful and although the rooms are a little dated they are clean and the views are absolutely amazing! Feels like you are on a tropical island just a few...

We've been coming to the Kon Tiki Inn for several years at this time of year. The winter rates are very good and frequently the weather is wonderful. Every room in the hotel faces the ocean and with the lovely pool and jacuzzi below and the swaying palms all over the property, the view is spectacular! Even if it's raining,...

This is our favorite hotel in Pismo when traveling without our dog. Every room has a Jaw dropping view! Just a quick stroll into town either along the beach or on the roads. Very well-maintained and the clientele is very upscale. Don't forget the beautiful pool with two hot tubs with views of the beach and sunset. Don't wait though...

We loved the Kon Tiki Inn so much so I wasn't sure I would write a review as would like to be able to re-book in the future. The staff were lovely, and the views from the rooms were out of this world especially being able to see whales swim past. Simply perfect.

My favorite place to stay in Pismo. Love views from 3rd floor. Right on the beach. Clean, elevaters, friendly staff. Saw whales for hours right out front last time! Pool is good temp, jacuzzis could be little warmer. Great location. Been to all the fancy ones, still like this one best!

Have stayed here several times as the location cannot be beat. The hotel is on a cliff right above the beach with stairs (a lot of stairs) down to a nice long walkable beach. Rooms are large and clean, modestly decorated but always quiet except for the roar of the surf. Small but nice balconies on floors 2 - 4....

Swaying palms, a smooth sandy beach and the sounds of the Pacific Ocean all welcome you to the Kon Tiki Inn, where every room features a panoramic ocean view. Located on the coastline midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, our oceanfront inn is perched on a bluff overlooking the stunning and serene Pacific Ocean. From the comfort of your guest room watch a glorious sunset or catch a glimpse of a whale. During the day choose from a variety of outdoor activities and at night fall asleep to the rhythmic sound of ocean waves.The guest room décor reflects our seaside location with a neutral and ocean-toned palette accented by natural wood, tropical prints, and rich detail. Our hotel features rooms with one king bed or one king with one queen bed. ... more   less
