When we travel, we enjoy all the amenities & services of a resort hotel. The central coast is limited in resort type hotels. However, we were very pleased with the Kon Tiki Inn. For the value <$200, we had an oceanfront room on a Saturday night. Sunday nights & weekdays are <$175 total. We had a 2nd floor room with... More

We have been saying at the Kon Tiki forever. We just were there for a few days this week. I was reminded of how much I love this place. Every room has a gorgeous ocean view and balcony.

The room was nice, decent, nothing fancy, just basic. Considering the price and ocean view, I'd go back again. You can't reserve online. Make sure to call early in the morning so you don't get a busy signal.

10 nights stay - WONDERFUL place, with WONDERFUL staff and service, this is the place you don't have to ask for something, they will offer it before. Very clean and quiet (you don't hear your neighbor). Location: you have to be there to see, no word can describe. TIP: if you want sunshine while sitting on your balcony, choose room... More

If you love totally out of the loop places, this is your place. It benefits from being in the absolute best place on the beach- so the waves are amplified- actually louder in your room than by the ocean, somehow- and you can hang in your room and listen to the surf. Divine! It is a bit worn at the... More

Like so many have said before, the location is beautiful. This very well maintained hotel has a lot of charm. It is not a luxury resort but it is updated, clean and meets all your needs, including a nice continental breakfast.

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
