The rooms are smallish and a bit retro but very clean and the beach is a (long) staircase away. It's the view and location that will knock your socks off. The restaurant next door is good and has the same fabulous ocean view. I'd stay there again.

If you are looking for a hotel right on the beach, this is it! The Kon Tiki is a wonderful, family owned hotel that is kid and pet friendly. Every room has the same spectacular view. You are also within walking distance to some great shops and restaurants. Within an hour or so drive, you have Cambria and San Simeon.... More

Wonderful stay! We had two adjoining rooms for the kids. We were on the first floor, could walk outside from our patio and drink in the beautiful ocean views and sounds. Staff was friendly. Noise level very low, could not hear people in other rooms. Best price for the view! We definitely will return!

Kon Tiki Inn is an unassuming looking three story hotel, with a stunning bluff side location overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Pismo Beach. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Each room has a rear sliding glass door, and a balcony or patio with an unobstructed ocean view. A stairway leads down the cliff face to the beach. Pismo Beach Pier and... More

Took a road trip with the family and we happened onto the Kon Tiki Inn. Luckily we were able to get a room. The view to the ocean was incredible and the pool area and walk down to the beach was a California moment (and we live in California!). Breakfast in the morning was a plus and the restaurant that...

Older property that has been very well maintained. The rooms and beds are comfortable and the staff friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is included but is across the parking lot in another building (actually pretty close). All rooms front on the ocean with patio or balcony. pool and hot tubs also have an ocean view. We would go again.

The best place I have stayed in so long...they actually make you feel welcome! Views from every room. New carpeting in some. Some furniture is older but still very comfortable and clean. Warm pool, hot tub...all in front of the beach. Walk down the stairs and walk out on an amazing beach that goes on and on in both directions.... More

We love staying here. It is right on the ocean. Beautiful view. Heated pool with ocean view and the hot tub has a view of the ocean with windows around it that slide open if you want that sea breeze blowing on you. I loved it. Stairs to the beautiful beach you can walk to town to eat. The breakfast... More
