Can't say enough good things about this place. My wife and I stayed here for two days. The room was very nice with a great view. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was continental but was quite good. The pool and hot tub were nice and well maintained. This is the place I will stay on my return to Pismo Beach.

This hotel is great. It's a throwback to the 60's but is super clean and comfortable. We were told to stay here by someone I trust so I blindly booked it. We were so happy with the room and how nice the staff was that we started to wonder why they didn't charge more. The walk to the beach was...

I have driven past the Kon Tiki a few times over the years, and have tried to book a room when it was busy and I just never made a firm plan. I finally stayed and I just loved it! From the minute I walked into the reception area, I knew I had found the right place for me. Very...

I have stayed here many times and have never been disappointed. Wonderful staff, beach access, a gym, a pool. I look forward to my next stay. Great California sea food is within walking distance. Every sunset is amazing. Thank you.

The Kon Tiki Inn is absolutely the only place I will stay at in Pismo Beach. It is easy to find and right off the 101 but you don't hear the freeway. The rooms are spotless, beds are comfortable and each room has a magnificent view of the ocean. You can hear the waves crashing the entire time you are...

This is by far one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at. Beautiful, clean, secure property. AMAZINGLY friendly staff. They completely go out of their way to make your trip the best it can be. If you're looking for an overly fancy place, this is not it. But, if you're looking for a really nice beach feel at...

My fave place of the whole California trip! Great hotel with amazing views.. watching whales from our balcony! Breakfast fab... kids loved making their own waffles. Beautiful place to relax for a few days. Great town with chilled out eateries and great beach...will definitely be back.

We stayed here as part of a Christmas break mini-vacation. The Kon Tiki had been recommended by longtime family friends and we were so glad we followed their advice! The view is exactly what you'd hope for in a beach getaway. No standing in a corner craning your neck to view a sliver of the Pacific from your "ocean view"...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
