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.

As a first time visitor to Pismo Beach this was the perfect place to stay. An ideal hotel for me is one that has comfortable rooms, great views and a relaxing atmosphere. Kon Tiki is a perfect example. The staff are very friendly and efficient. The location and room views are gorgeous. And the bedroom with automatic fireplace and balcony is amazing to enjoy as you listen to the surf crash on the beach and look out over the coast and ocean. The rooms are very clean and well appointed. Guaranteed you'll sleep like a baby. My only regret is that I didn't book a longer stay.

This is our third or fourth visit to Kon Tiki in the last 8 years and first since the Pandemic. Can’t beat the view and fantastic pool setting. Breakfast will be better in the future. Office workers and the maids are more like family there. We will be back.

My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of spending 4 nights here recently and already are looking forward to a return visit. This is our first choice when visiting Pismo. Upon arrival we are always greeted warmly by the front desk staff. The amazing ocean front rooms have incredible full ocean views with beautiful sunsets. The grounds, pool and jacuzzis are well maintained. The rooms are spacious, quiet and very clean. An ample breakfast is provided. We would highly recommend Kon Tiki to anyone

Kon Tiki always feels like coming home. The staff is welcoming and the rooms are all ocean front and clean as can be. There is so much to love about this place. The breakfast is simple and has a lot of carbs, but the coffee is good as are the bagels.

We are Marriott and Hilton rewards members but the Kon Tiki Inn was such a value and had the most beautiful view, so we chose this hotel for our first Pismo Beach stay. We were not disappointed! The prices are fantastic, the views are gorgeous, the grounds and pool were very well kept as well. Breakfast was a nice plus as was the passes to the athletic club next door. Free parking also and never an issue finding a place. We also loved the Vista Seafood and Steak restaurant next door within walking distance. Book early! This place sells out all season long!

I decided to take a chance on this hotel because of all the great reviews, and the lower price compared to most hotels in the area. We were very impressed! The furnishings and decorations in the room are not as updated as I thought they would be, and rooms do you need some updating, but everything else is pretty fantastic. Every room has an ocean view, a decent size balcony with tables and chairs, large rooms, gorgeous views of everything, easy access to the beach, and walking distance to the pier. Customer service was outstanding. I really loved that our room came with a king bed, and a queen bed, instead of two queen beds as most hotels traditionally have. This is one of the few times I’ve stayed a hotel where I felt like I could relax and enjoy the ocean from my room, despite always getting rooms with ocean views. I also love that they offer continental breakfast. Additional pluses are the free access to the gym in the same parking lot, and laundromats on site. Sidenote… We tried Vista, the restaurant site, and we would not recommend it at all. It’s conveniently located, and a great atmosphere, but their food is not very well, and they forgot several items in our orders. Very overpriced. Luckily, the hotel is in walking distance to a ton of fantastic restaurants!

Wow. This place has gorgeous views, a great staff that's profe but very welcoming. Ocean view and clean, good sized rooms. If you don't want to leave early, there is a very nice continental breakfast. They also have plug ins for electric vehicles. There is a lovely ocean view pool and stairs to get easily to the beach for a relaxing walk along the shore and down to the Pismo pier. We can't wait to go back. We highly recommend a stay here.

My expectations were met and exceeded by the Kon Tiki hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful, the facility is very clean with the best views in Pismo. I can't believe how great the pool area is and the accessibility to the beach is perfect. I will be returning again soon.

You can only call to book here. I reserved two nights and they said $172.05 over the phone (they didn’t specify this was the nightly rate so I assumed it was the total). I thought that was a great deal and and the followup email confirmed this amount. Once we checked out we were billed for $172.05 per night. Shady. The room itself is a basic motel style that has been updated. Its very clean. There is a comfy recliner sofa. The included breakfast is terrible. Do not count on eating this, you will be disappointed. All the rooms face the ocean in a curved shape. Although all the rooms have a great view, everyone sort of faces each other so it’s a bit weird.
