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

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.

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

I stayed here this summer for three days. The staff was kind and helpful. Beautiful room with amazing ocean views. The room was very clean and comfortable. A microwave would have been welcome. I have recommended the Kon Tiki Inn to many friends and family. I can not wait to return soon.

Rooms and grounds are very clean and well maintained. Lots of surface areas in the room; I liked that there were 2 sinks and a fridge, though as long as you're going that far, a microwave would have come in handy. There are plenty of chaise lounges around the pool, though you have to return to your room if you're... More

Highly recommend the Kon Tiki Inn. Almost every room has a nice view of the Beach. You climb down a long flight of stairs to get to the beach. Property was clean and well maintained and we enjoyed our stay. Breakfast is included.

Swaying palms, a smooth sandy beach and the sounds of the Pacific Ocean all welcome you to the Kon Tiki Inn, where every room features a panoramic ocean view. Located on the coastline midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, our oceanfront inn is perched on a bluff overlooking the stunning and serene Pacific Ocean. From the comfort of your guest room watch a glorious sunset or catch a glimpse of a whale. During the day choose from a variety of outdoor activities and at night fall asleep to the rhythmic sound of ocean waves.The guest room décor reflects our seaside location with a neutral and ocean-toned palette accented by natural wood, tropical prints, and rich detail. Our hotel features rooms with one king bed or one king with one queen bed. ... more   less
