After reading prior reviews, we made sure to book two nights in Pismo during a road trip vacation from San Francisco down the coast to Los Angeles. I was surprised that you cannot book this hotel online anywhere, but calling them to make a reservation was quick and painless. The rates were great (weekday and just before high season in June) and the rooms were very comfortable and spacious. The hotel design was really nice as each room has a balcony or patio that looks out on the pool area and ocean. We had a convenient ground floor room and walked from room out to pool and down the stairs to the beach with our 1 year old (who got to eat sand and dip his toes in the ocean for the first time!). Each morning we ate the continental breakfast (included in the room price). It was really good and plentiful. The women running it were friendly and very efficient (they had make your own waffles, cereal, fruit, danishes, yogurt, juices) - great start to the day. The hotel has an attached seafood restaurant that is a really good option for a high quality meal with great ocean views and fresh fish. The Kon Tiki Inn is certainly where we will stay again the next time we are in Pismo.
