We booked this for 3 nights based on the great Trip Advisor reviews it had received. This is a very old motel that needs renovating. While our room appeared clean, after a while it became apparent that the daily cleaning wasn't enough. The carpeting needed cleaning so badly that my white socks were quickly filthy on their bottoms. The wallpaper... More

The Kon Tiki motel is a nice efficiency motel that would be a great place to spend a few days while exploring Venice Beach. The rooms are large,comfortable and clean. I would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I love to stay at mom and pop places on the road and this one did not disappoint. The hotel is small but the rooms are large and comfortable with real refrigerators and comfortable beds. Not great views but the property is so tropical and covered walkways are a added bonus with the rainy seasonal weather. The... More

Wonderful people checking in. Cute grounds and pool. Spacious rooms. Awesome path along intercostal for walking. Allows small dogs. Centrally located to beach, parks, downtown Venice and fishing. Very clean rooms and helpful staff.

My husband and I were visiting venice for the first time and needed a pet friendly hotel. This hidden motel is great. Close to everything and clean. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay. We will definitely come back. Oh and not to mention how adorable it is.

My nephew and I went shark teeth hunting at Caspersen Beach and needed an overnight place to stay. Kon-Tiki had very good reviews on here (TripAdvisor) so decided to stay there. Well...it was even BETTER than expected! When we walked into the room even my 15 yr. old nephew said "Wow". The room was so big and it was an... More

Everything is great about this place, except its weird immediate surroundings: it's backed right up against a boat dealership's huge boathouse. (And what's wrong with that? Nothing at all, really. No noise, no bother. It's just weird.) Our efficiency room was spacious and comfortable, with a nice airy feeling. We really enjoyed being right on the Venice Waterway Park trails,... More

This was a very good place for us to stay. It is like a home away from home with nice sized room, bathroom, and kitchenette. The outside was very pretty with nice plants and I like the Christmas lights along the walkway. The pool looked very nice but it was a bit cold for February. The room looked like it... More

We have been coming here for 15 years. Very clean. The style is a bit old fashioned but rooms are large with high wooden ceilings. The onsite managers keep everything immaculate. Kitchen in room is perfect. Grill outside. Pool was empty while we were there and we felt like we owned the place. Very private. Kids enjoy watching the planes... More
