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

My wife and I enjoy visiting Pismo Beach and have stayed in other hotels in the area, but the Kon Tiki is clearly our favorite choice. There are several reasons to like the Kon Tiki and the other TA posters have done an excellent job pointing them out. We absolutely love the view, our rooms have always been well kept... More

Yes, the room looks like it's from the 80's but hey who can complain about the view! The value for what you get here is great. Great views, pool, and beach access. Try to book a room on the south end of the hotel, we were located on the north side, so we couldn't fully appreciate the sunset because the... More

We stayed here only one night. The view was perfect, and we slept fabulous due to the the sound of the ocean. Bathroom had a heater, which was nice in the early morning, and plenty of space for your toiletries. We had dinner at Steamers. Good but bad service. Our servant was nowhere to be found, and there were not... More

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.
