We stayed for 2 nights in a room on the far end of the third floor. The view from the balcony was gorgeous. The beach was never crowded. We found our stay very relaxing. Upon check in, the gentleman at the front desk was courteous enough; however, he didn't mention that breakfast was available in the mornings. I saw that... More

I've stayed at Kon Tiki five times. My [now ex-] wife's family would hold their reunions at the hotel because it is roughly midway between LA & San Francisco, and as much as I couldn't stand being around her family, I was glad to go because I knew that sitting on my room balcony looking at the huge beach and...

Just stayed for one night, travelling from San Francisco to Santa Monica, but couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. We are a family of 4 from the UK, and the room & beds were huge, with all the facilities you could need. Wonderful views of passing dolphins and whales. We eat at Steamers next door - great meal...

My family of four stayed at this hotel for two nights on our trip down the California coast. Nice property. The room was big and very clean and the view is gorgeous. Pismo beach is a beautiful town and we enjoyed our stay. We only wished for warmer weather. It was very chilly and we didn't get into the ocean.... More

I stayed at the Kon Tiki Inn July 1 - 3, 20014 with a girlfriend visiting from New England. Hotel staff was very nice, room clean, beautiful ocean front room. I will definitely come back for another stay.

I've passed by the Kon Tiki Inn and have always wanted to stay there because my husband and I love everything mid-century and this place must have been glorious when it first opened in the 50s. The present decor is from the late 80s - mid 90s. Anothwewards, it's pretty ugly. However, it was clean, had a great tv, and... More

We really liked this motel. Our room had a gorgeous view of the ocean. We sat on our balcony and watched whales, dolphins, and pelicans feeding. We were able to leave the door open all night and listen to the waves. The continental breakfast was quite good. There was a fitness center that we did not use but it looked... More

This is an adorable and well-kept hotel on the beach...well just above it, but with beach access. Pretty pool and hot tubs, and everything was very clean and neat. Lots of families, and though I asked for a room away from the pool for quiet, this was a very quiet resort in the evening, which was great. Breakfast is included.... More

We tend to stay at specific chain hotels when traveling. This hotel had good reviews and a very reasonable price. We booked a room for 1 night, after arriving, I booked the second night immediately. Picture perfect view and grounds. Excellent desk staff. Rooms a bit dated, but wonderful in every way. We will go back!
