My second stay at Kon Tiki Inn. Discovered this little gem last year and returned again this summer for 3 days with my girlfriend from out of state. Folks that run the hotel are helpful and friendly. The hotel is right on the ocean....wonderful view....fell asleep to the crash of the waves....can't wait to return again, only next time it... More

Great place to spend a night or a week--- Great Location by the beach and easy walk to the beach which leads to the boardwalk and then to down town. The walk north leads to a nice rock wall with some interesting tide pools. The motel pool was nice along with the hot tubs.

My husband and I come to Pismo every year, sometimes twice, we do our best to stay here at Kon Tiki. For us personally, it has the best view, every room has a beach/ocean view. You're close enough to the water that I can fall asleep with the door open listening to the waves crashing. Close enough and far enough... More

I found the Kon Tiki Inn earlier this year, and have now been here 3 times and it's only June! I love the beach-front location! The views, the amenities, and the great service, make this an outstanding value. I love the comfy beds!

The Kon Tiki is one hotel that can offer a full ocean view from all rooms. Bring your binoculars, we were lucky to have a pod of whales for two of the three days we stayed there. The room was comfortable so was the king bed. The view fantastic! The outdoor pool was nice, well kept, a good place to... More

Starting with the funky sign, this was a highlight during our roadtrip-style honeymoon. The most comfortable bed I have ever slept in and waking up with a view (and yes, every room has ocean view) of the ocean and beach was just amazing. Cute small balcony and coffee maker provided. Nice but small bathroom. Very friendly staff- they even let... More

I didn't stay here, but I did write an email for myself, my husband, and two adult traveling companions regarding the availability of 2 rooms for 2 nights. They never responded at all, which I find as terrible customer service. Even if they were full, a nice response saying so, with a chance for a future stay would have been... More

Henry M, General Manager at Kon Tiki Inn, responded to this review

We wish to apologize for any lack of response. We have been installing new computers, a new property management system, and are now using a new email vendor; it appears that this request got lost in the transition. We hope that you will give us another opportunity to offer you a great stay in Pismo Beach. More

I love this place. Every room has an ocean view. The rooms are clean and quiet. The hotel is within walking distance to a great restaurant. Other attractions are a short drive away. You could call it a hidden gem.

My boyfriend and I booked this place on a whim while driving north. we are city people who work in fashion. We were happy to find great service and a clean room with a stunning ocean view and access. beautifully manicured grounds as well. the front desk recommended Cracked Crabs for dinner and it was amazing. Recommended!
