After six weeks of travelling around CA, Utah and Arizona, we ended up at Pismo Beach for three days in October 2013. I had booked in advance (Couple with a 2 years old toddler). All rooms have a seafront view. We got a room downstairs, so we let the sea front door open and let our toddler run around on... More

We stayed three nights here and visited nearby attractions. However, it was difficult to tear ourselves away from the magnificent ocean view and the large heated pool. One evening a hang glider buzzed our balcony as we sipped wine in anticipation of the sunset. Although the furnishings are somewhat dated, the staff is super and the rooms are very clean

I almost don't want to review this place favorably, because it is so great! The entire hotel faces the ocean, every room has a view. The hotel sits on a cliff, 50 or so steps down to the beach. Sand Dollars on the beach, tons of shells and rocks. The hotel is QUIET! You cannot hear anything if the sliding... More

Four of us stayed at the Kon Tiki on Thursday, 27 Mar 2014. The Kon Tiki is very conveniently located with easy access from the Coast Highway, and extra wide parking spaces. The room patios have splendid views with direct beach access, which provides very attractive, relaxing and pleasant lodging accommodations. The staff is cordial and helpful, and the rooms... More

You can not go wrong staying here. Hotel is very clean. Has lots of parking. Every room faces the ocean and has a private deck. Very quiet rooms, so staying on the second floor is no problem. Plenty of space in the room and a great treat when the room has one king bed and one double bed. Wish more... More

I knew from the photos this place would be nice, but it was even better. The balcony felt private even with everyone near by. You can look out at the ocean and not even realize there is someone next door. The rooms are the quietest I've ever slept in, we never heard our neighbors even late in the evening when... More

What a find! Perfect location, gorgeous views, excellent staff and reasonable charge for an oceanfront room in this great beach town! Owned by the same individual since built in 1974. Staff is caring and professional, hotel is clean and updated; just a lot of bang for your buck.

We've been coming to this hotel for years. The location can't be beat, with great beach views no matter where your room is located, although we prefer the 3rd floor. The decor is dated, with old furniture, but our room did have a flatscreen TV and the bed and linens were comfortable. The towels definitely need replacing; they are very... More
