Right on the beach with a pool and two hot tubs. It includes access to Pismo Beach Athletic Club where we played pickleball and went swimming. Rooms were very clean. Bed was super comfy. Would definitely be back.

I stayed at the Kon Tiki Inn Thanksgiving week. The staff was friendly, courteous, and helpful. The grounds were nicely landscaped, and well maintained. I was in a king suite, which I thoroughly enjoyed. It was clean, nicely appointed, and (best of all) ocean front with an outstanding view. All units at this hotel are ocean front, which is unusual.... More

After reading so many positive reviews about Kon Tiki, I was wondering if this place was too good to be true but.... the reviews are TRUE! It's an amazing place to stop & break up your trip from SF to LA. I only wish we were able to stay for more than one night. The room had everything we needed... More

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
