The Kon Tiki Inn was recommended by my Mother who has stayed here before. My husband and I just wanted a quick getaway to relax. We booked 1 night before leaving home and what a bargain price we received too. Well when we got there and saw that it had a beautiful ocean view, lovely pool area and a patio... More

We chose the Kon Tiki Inn after reading up the reviews on Tripadvisor. Bit of a faff to book (especially if phoning from another country, as we were) but we got there in the end. We drove down from Monterey where we'd stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. We used the iPhone sat nag and it got us to the... More

We really like this hotel. It is simple and basic. BUT it has ALL ocean view rooms, this is the best part. If you want to be peaceful and not too much rowdiness going on then this place is perfect. The walk to the beach is a bit of a way But you get some exercise in. Good value too.

There are several Hotels to pick from that are a bit more expensive on the beach there in Pismo. Going was a last minute decision and there were only a few choices of hotels that were not sold out. If you have read any of my other hotel reviews, if I am going to the ocean you know I want... More

The reason why we come back is the view right from your room balcony. You could stay inside and watch the the view all day, but why would you? The beach is just a staircase down. The room itself is pretty basic, but we never stay in for very long. I'm not a fan of the sheets or pillows, so... More

This was our first stay at Kon Tiki. It was highly recommended by friends, and we were not disappointed during our 3 night stay. Unfortunately, 3 days after we returned home we received notice that our American Express card number had been fraudulently used at 3 businesses within a few miles of the hotel. I used the card at only... More

James Erwin S, General Manager at Kon Tiki Inn, responded to this review

We take very seriously the security of our guests' credit card information, and were saddened to learn that this guest experienced problems with his credit card. We do not believe that the Kon Tiki Inn was a part of the problem. Although the review indicates no follow-up, we had spoken with this guest on two separate occasions regarding his concerns... More

From the back of the hotel as you approach from the PCH it looks like a motel, but the front is very pleasant and beachfront. The pool is small but very clean with access to the beach below. Complimentary breakfast is nice and the restaurant has views overlooking the ocean serving good food at reasonable prices.

Just returned home from Pismo Beach. This was our first stay at the Kon Tiki Inn..... so many pluses, our room (I believe) all rooms have a balcony looking out at the Pacific Ocean. Room was clean, nothing fancy, but the view, ah! Check in went smoothly, though we were not told about breakfast but I had read that on... More

My wife and I stayed here for our five year wedding anniversary. The location is absolutely perfect. The rooms are not exactly modern, but they are immaculate. The staff was friendly and there was nothing between us and the ocean except a big flight of stairs. Everything is well maintained and the complimentary breakfast across the parking lot was perfect.... More

The view is right onto the beach, sunsets are fantastic. The pool seemed nice, we're not pool/lay in the sun folks, and there were two hot tubs there as well that... More
