We got a great deal on this hotel as it was off season. The location was wonderful-a staircase down to the ocean and plenty of beach to enjoy! Every room has a gorgeous view. The lower level rooms open up to plenty of grass area and your own patio. Parking was very convenient as well. Located just a few blocks...

If you want a quiet romantic getaway room that faces the beach where you can leave your balcony door open and be lulled to sleep or awakened by the sound of the surf........this is it! Quit looking at stay here. Amazing views from every room but try to stay on second or third floors. Comfortable beds, great rates, walk to...

This hotel is the best. All rooms face the ocean and the view is breathtaking. The staff is Thailand courteous and the entire place is clean and well kept. There is a really nice fitness club attached and you will have free access. If you enjoy body surfing as I do, this is the beach, but when I was there,...

Spent three nights at the Kon Tiki Inn while visiting family in the Pismo Beach area. The room had a king bed and a queen bed. They were very comfortable. The room came with a refrigerator and coffee maker. Everything was very clean. But the best part is that each room has a balcony or walk out patio with views...

I've probably stayed at every hotel/motel in Pismo Beach. Yes, they are a bit dated, as they've been there for many years. But Kon Tiki Inn must demand perfection because the hotel is immaculate. The rooms are small, granted, but large enough to enjoy with flat screen TV's, updated bathrooms, nice beds and that incredible view. And QUIET! Which is...

It's hard to beat the incredible ocean views from every room at this property. Without them though, this is just another motel. That being said, who cares about the rooms when the ocean and the access to the beach are just steps away. However, Kontiki does it well. The beds are super comfortable – Beautyrest pillow tops. The Room furnishings...

We just spent five days at the Kon Tiki Inn. What a great value it is! The front desk staff members were so helpful and courteous. April was a sweetheart! The room, though a bit dated, was clean, large and comfortable...especially the Lazyboy loveseat. A nice touch! A stunning view from every balcony to watch the sunsets over the ocean...

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
