During our California road trip, this was by far my favorite hotel. All the rooms face look out over the ocean. The rooms are spacious and clean, have air conditioning (many places on the coast do not), and have a balcony or patio. The front desk was friendly, helpful, and efficient. There is an outdoor pool with 2 hot tubs... More

Easy to find, clean rooms, wonderful staff. We stay here almost exclusively when we come to Pismo! The pool is nice and clean, the view of the pier at night is gorgeous. There are plenty of nice restaurants very close by. Steamers restaurant is in the same parking lot and the food is amazing.

This place is great--not fancy but the view is spectacular and it has access to the beach which most places in Pismo do not. Granted it's 109 steps down (and back up) but just think of it as part of your daily workout. The people are very friendly and nice and the breakfast is fine and plentiful. We will stay... More

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
