We have stayed at the Kon Tiki several times. Every room has an ocean view and the view is spectacular, some of the best sunsets. we love listening to the ocean all night. The hotel is clean and very reasonably priced

Stayed here last May. My son-in-law's reservation for his room was mishandled. We made reservations months in advance. He spent 30 minutes trying to convince the staff to accomodate us. They finally gave in but gave him a room that could not support his children. Luckily, our family in the area agreed to take the kids. I don't think the... More

It is problematic when a guest makes reservations for a certain number of persons and then arrives with multiple additional persons. When they do not consider this to be a problem we request that they make their future reservations elsewhere. More

Love the Kon Tiki. All the rooms are ocean front though it is a little walk down to the sand. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was on par with the chain hotels. it is an older property but has been well maintained over the years. It is located a short walk from all the restaurants and shopping... More

I drove down the coast with my son who was turning 21. We stayed here for 3 nights and ended up adding an extra night because we enjoyed it so much. Great Staff-Clean Room-Everything we wanted was close by. They also give full gym membership across the parking lot-which we both took advantage of and loved having a place to... More

We have stayed at the Kon Tiki many times and have never been disappointed. The rooms are always clean, and the view is spectacular. We like a 2nd or 3rd floor room so we can keep the sliding door to the small balcony open all night an enjoy the sound of the surf. Not direct beach access - instead there... More

We ended staying here because the hotel we always stay at would not deal with us for one more night. So we said fine.. Well it turned out to be a huge blessing. So much better than where we usually stay. Sometimes those detours are a blessing in disguise. We loved the Hotel. There is a free breakfast, Waffles, toast,... More

We had booked a room here but due to accommodation issues, had to leave early. The Kon Tiki was so professional regarding this situation. They immediately offered us a refund and recommended another hotel nearby. We wish we could have stayed as the property is beautiful. The hotel is a great place and what a great staff!

We stayed overnight at Kon Tiki inn on Christmas eve and our stay was great. We came in tired after our hikes in Big Sur and wanted a peaceful stay to rest overnight. Kon Tiki was exactly the place we were looking for. Quiet, beautiful ocean view and very clean and comfortable room. Very reasonable prices as well.

Large, comfortable, well-eqipped, QUIET rooms. Extremely pleasant, helpful front desk staff. Ideal location on bluff above beach, with stairway down to it, close to pier. Breakfast so-so, but free pass to athletic club nearby.

Just returned from a 4 night stay at this great place. The location could not be better, easy access to the beach, every room looks out on the ocean. The staff was so helpful, courteous and friendly. I was impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms and throughout the Inn. And let's not forget the delicious breakfast served every morning.... More
