Lovely motel with great location. Easy walk to pier and the Splash Cafe. Each room has a beach view. Great value. Nice pool with view of ocean. Looking forward to coming back for another visit. Price great.

My husband traveled to this area on business, and I tagged along. The Kon Tiki is awesome! All the rooms face the beach, and the view is unbelievable. Front desk staff is friendly and helpful; breakfast was yummy. I would definitely stay here again

This is a gem. We wanted to find a hotel close to Steamers restaurant and Kon Tiki Inn is right next door. The ocean front property is great and very reasonable. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the balcony is awesome. The furnishings are so so, the bathroom is updated . The breakfast is average. We plan to return.

Was happy to get a room at this property. Every room has a gorgeous ocean view. Staff was professional. Very accommodating. Friendly guests and a full continental breakfast. This is my go-to place when in Pismo.

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
