Swaying palms, a smooth sandy beach and the sounds of the Pacific Ocean all welcome you to the Kon Tiki Inn, where every room features a panoramic ocean view. Located on the coastline midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, our oceanfront inn is perched on a bluff overlooking the stunning and serene Pacific Ocean. From the comfort of your guest room watch a glorious sunset or catch a glimpse of a whale. During the day choose from a variety of outdoor activities and at night fall asleep to the rhythmic sound of ocean waves.The guest room décor reflects our seaside location with a neutral and ocean-toned palette accented by natural wood, tropical prints, and rich detail. Our hotel features rooms with one king bed or one king with one queen bed.

A wonderful stay! The room was spacious, with plenty of clothes drawers. Great bed, pillows, showerhead. This was the first room we've ever stayed that came with two recliner seats - masterful! The desk was really friendly and helpful. The view is beautiful - all rooms view the ocean. Get a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor if you want the best view over the cliff to the ocean. It looks like the rooms on the first floor were best fit for families with childres, so their kids could play out on the lawn. Recommendation - if you are staying in the summer, try to get a room as close to the south end as you can - we were in the middle and could not view the sunset from our room. But the beach is just below, with fantastic sunsets! The only issue we had was with the water, and for us it was minor - there was a funny taste. Fortunately, because of COVID, we had brought with us a case of water, and were just fine. So - bring a case, and you won't be disappointed!!

We loved our stay here.. friendly staff beautiful views and very clean... It’s stressful traveling with Covid and this hotel was great with making sure the lounge chairs we’re sanitized and making sure not too many people were at the pool.. I enjoyed the breakfast every morning .. and you can’t beat hearing the ocean from your room and the views... we will be back again soon💕

My favorite place to stay in Pismo Beach. The views are magical and whales are often visable. The pool and jacuzzi are quiet and picturesque atop the cliff, plus access to a private beach away from the crowds. I feel very at peace at the Kon Tiki.

Let preface this by saying, the hotel is doing the best it can under circumstances beyond their control. Kon Tiki has the best ocean view in Pismo Beach. Yes it is 110 steps down to the beach but you can enjoy the view from the grass area without the steps. Here are the covid modifications as of July 30, 2020. Pool is open from 10 to 6 but you can only reserve it for one hour and you must either reserve swimming or deck area with a view of the ocean. You may only get a quarter of the pool to swim in depending on the number of people, so reserve early. They to provide a decent continental breakfast for in room eating. Maids only empty trash and exchange towels, no linen service, again as a precaution for covid. Almost ever restaurant in Pismo will deliver to the Kon Tiki.

We stayed 4 nights and had a great time. All rooms have a view of the ocean, and you can sleep to the sound of waves. There is a good restaurant next door or you can take a short 1/2 mile drive to town. You can also take the short walk on the beach to town. We will return.
