We just recently stayed at the Kon Tiki Inn in Pismo Beach for the first time. The location is fantastic! The hotel faces the ocean and there isn't a bad view from any point in the hotel. The bedding could use an upgrade but overall it is a clean hotel with a decent breakfast included. The front desk was very...

We love to stay at the Kon Tikki Inn, and Pismo is our very favorite place. The hotel is really pretty basic except for its extraordinary view. It is amazing from every room. We had the kids, so we stayed ground floor for easy beach and pool access. The King bed was super comfy. Love the two sink with vanity...

We were there mid July and had such a great stay for 3 nights. The kids loved the pool and hot tub and I loved the balcony view over the Pacific. Breakfast wasn't great but then not many motel breakfasts are. The room was spacious, the manager vigilant to the goings on at the property and a sink outside of...

We were not told or shown where the continental breakfast was served. Had I not asked about a restroom we would not have known where to go. The jets in only one hot tub worked. The pool towels were terrible. So bring your own. The restaurant is actually closed for good not just being remodeled as we were told. Got...

I don't usually spend this much on a hotel but it was worth it. The view from the balcony was amazing -- we saw whale spouts in the evening and dolphins in the morning! Close walk to the beach and the pier, wish I was there right now. Breakfast was as good as hoped for, rooms were clean and front...

Kon Tiki Inn is very nice. We stayed there two nights in June and loved it. Everything is so clean. Price is a little high, but can be expected for beach front. Pool and hot tub are clean. Rooms are extra big. We had a king and queen bed in our room, so it made it extra nice. There is...

We've been going to the Kon Tiki Inn since the early 90's. We lucked out the first time and got a tower room and now we plan our vacation there around getting one! The tower rooms are almost like the other rooms except these have a fireplace. You can turn on the fireplace, open up the sliding glass door, take...

The place is great!!... The location(close to everything restaurants, shops, pier, beach, gym), amenities (good beds, pool, hot tub ), helpful, friendly, welcoming staff...and rates are good too.. We most often book our stay after the summer "crush" to the central coast and have our choice of where to stay with reasonable rates(off-season).

I love this place! For less than $200 in peak season, we get to soak up the sun and beautiful ocean views, sit in the hot tubs, walk to the pier and dinner, all after spending the day trying local wineries. It's just the best way to relax and let the roar of the ocean take away the stress of...

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
