I have been going to the Kon Tiki for years, no desire to stay anywhere else. Every room has a private balcony with a table and chairs. The rooms include a safe, coffee maker and fridge. A Microwave would be great, but not included. There is a pool and hot tub that stays open until 10, a short walk across... More

Every room has an unobstructed view of the ocean and it is within walking distance of downtown Pismo Beach. Outstanding restaurants close with beautiful views of the ocean and coastline. Staff does an outstanding job of meeting your accommodation expectations and rates are very reasonable. Hotel has a high occupancy rate so plan ahead.

Pleasantly surprised at the quality of this accommodation given the great price. Very difficult to book from overseas and would recommend an on-line booking system. Great waking up to the sounds of the ocean. Funny watching people taking food at breakfast for eating later on.

Spent a couple of nights for my birthday. Great view from the third floor. Motel was very clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms and breakfast were basic, but it was all about the view. Fantastic ocean front. Good vaule.

I love the Kon Tiki Inn. This was the first stop on our cross country honeymoon trip. Out of the 7 hotels, motels, and Inns we stayed in, this was my favorite. The beds were soft & comfortable. Very clean, lots of pillows, great access to the beach, perfect views (from the first floor room all the way to the... More

Stayed here overnight on our way to Los Angeles. Was perfect. Had a room upstairs overlooking beach. Good size and very clean. Pool is beautiful especially at night. Breakfast was OK but not amazing. Good value for money though and waking distance to lots of eateries

Great place to stay! I would highly recommend! The hotel itself is not very big so you can't do last minute bookings, especially near holidays.. You will want to book at least a month in advance but it's well worth it. The outside looks a little dull but don't let that deter you the rooms are much more updated.. It... More

Nice simple place. Great view, nice size rooms. We enjoyed the lanai and it was great having a double recliner in the room. The pool was COLD, both hot tubs were nice. They do not open the pool area until 9am, which I was very unpleasant about. The continental breakfast was basic, but fresh. My big complaint is that a... More

We stayed at this hotel about 6 months ago and had our service dog with us. The manager initially told us that we couldn't have a dog in the room but reluctantly allowed it because it was a service dog. During the stay the owner walked by our room and our dog was off leash on our outside deck. She... More

This review would be laughable if it were not so hurtful. The reviewer's "service animal" was running loose on our lawn - which is also a children's play area - and not sitting next to him on their outside deck. When I walked toward their room to request that they keep their dog on a leash, their "service animal" didn't... More

We stayed at Kon Tiki after Labor Day. I believe it was probably full but we never felt congestion nor any noise (other than the surf!). This is a great place! The grounds, rooms and facility are well kept up and clean. There are no 'parking lot' views; all of them are of the ocean. The balcony with each room... More
