We go here several times each year, and its always clean, quiet with everything we need. Love the gym, love the views, love the management. Only thing that has gone south is the restaurant (Steamers) changed their menu to a la carte.

Can't go wrong here!! Just steps from the pool and hot tubs!! Sit in hot tub and watch the waves! Very relaxing! Clean rooms friendly staff. My teenage girls loved it. Lots of steps to the beach but very worth it

I have stayed at the Inn twice and have loved it every time. Large flat screen TV, fast wireless internet. The pool area is protected from the California gusts by plastic/ glass panels. The hot tub is prime for the cool nights, and the pool for the warmer afternoons. Beach access is part of the journey: a long staircase leads... More

Easy to find, right off the freeway, ocean view rooms with a reasonable price. Family friendly, hot tub, pool, access to beach, 5 minutes to downtown, staff are friendly, free breakfast is your standard fare, room decor is dated, but every room has an ocean view. Will definitely stay here again. Free wifi is spotty, so be prepared.

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

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.
