Stayed overnight but wish we could have stayed for a week. Easy quick check in and out with very friendly helpful staff. Breakfast was simple but adequate and included. I would definitely stay here again and again.

Driving from SFO to LA and stopping at a few "cheaper" accommodation options along the way and this is a highlight. We are really just arriving late and leaving fairly early to spend more time looking at the sites. Booked "family suite" for 5 which is adjoining rooms with a king bed in one room and a king and queen... More

Kon Tiki Inn does not need another positive review. It is a terrific choice if you are visiting Pismo Beach. Our post-Christmas visit was our first time at this hotel, at the suggestion of a friend who has stayed here for 30+ years. We decided to give it a try when a last minute opening popped up. We are so... More

This is a great property especially for the price. All of the rooms are ocean front with a private balcony. It is less than a 10 minute walk to the Pismo pier and most of the popular pier area restaurants. There is direct access to the beach below via stairs.

The pool and hot tub are truly awesome especially at sunset. Short walk down the beach to downtown Pizmo beach or you can take side streets for a quick 5 to 10 minute walk to get... More

Kon Tiki Inn is located a short walk from the pier. It is clean and comfortable with all rooms having excellent views of the ocean. The staff is helpful and professional. Very nice place to stay and prices are less expensive compared to other hotels with views. Plan to stay here again soon.

We stayed here on a business trip. It is right on the ocean, has a great pool, jacuzzi and all rooms have an ocean view. The staff is the friendliest and the price is great for California. There is a really nice seafood restaurant right next door. They also have a continental breakfast that is included. I would stay here... More

I dropped in on my way south, and they had one room left. It didn't look like it had been remodeled since the '70s, sort of like visiting an elderly relative's and staying in her guest bedroom that she never bothered to refurnish, but she kept clean. More than I expected for the price and location. The hotel sits on... More

Stayed at the Kon Tiki Inn on a road trip from SF to LA in early December, 2015. The rooms were large, very clean and comfortable. The free WiFi was very helpful, and the staff was the best. I accidentally left a my nicest suit, tie, and blazer in a garment bag in the closet - they found it and... More
