We have been visiting the Kon Tiki Inn since 1998. It is a great place to just relax and listen to the ocean. It is always clean and comfortable and the staff is friendly and helpful. We like the "penthouse" rooms in the cooler season because of their gas fireplaces. This is a very popular hotel, so book early!

I loved it here. I stayed with my 2 teenage sons. The room was fantastic and on the first floor. It had a balcony and sleeping with the door left open with the sound of the ocean was fantastic. My sons took full advantage of the basketball court and gym facilities. I went to a Zumba class too which was fun. The breakfasts were good too.
You can hire surfboards nearby and the beach is lovely. We only stayed for 2 nights but I wish we had stayed longer.

Room Tip: Ask for a first not ground floor so you can leave the door open and listen to the sea!!! Marvellous.

hands down this hotel has the most beautiful coastal view in the pismo beach area. Minutes away from down town, but a window view that leaves you feeling like you are miles away from anything. Even when the hotel is full the staff still makes you feel like you are the only guest. the front desk service is enjoyable and they will help you find any activities in the area that you are looking to do, all you have to do is ask,i did, and they did not disappoint. Sunset's in the spa are unforgettable!

The welcome at this hotel was excellent, friendly, informative and courteous. The room was large and clean (albeit a little dated) and the view of the ocean was outstanding. Breakfast was included, the usual fare but the bagels were very tasty. Again, clean and a frequent replenishment of fresh breakfast food items evidenced. I would highly recommend this hotel for those passing through the vicinity and in need of a good place to stop.

Room Tip: No tip needed - all rooms face the ocean!

Usually, I visit the Kon Tiki with my family but I stopped by overnight over the weekend. And, I enjoyed the hotel as much as ever. The rooms are as always clean and pleasant, the view is spectacular and the staff are as kind and considerate as ever.

During this trip I was reminded of the nice and unpretentous type of guests that this hotel attracts. Many are visitors who like my family return year after year. This encourages pleasant chats poolside and really adds to the warm welcome one receives at the Kon Tiki.

This is a nice but not a luxury hotel. It's very clean and pleasant. You have a refrigerator in the room, coffee pot, shampoo & soap along with the basic towels. What is spectacular is the view! All rooms face the ocean. We like the top floor as a lot of families prefer this hotel and you won't have children running around the floor above you.
The hotel also has a continental breakfast from 7 - 10 AM.

Room Tip: Top floor to avoid the noise of children running about on the floor above you. The bottom floor is p...

First time at Pismo. The Kon Tiki Inn was fabulous. The room was very comfortable, staff was very nice. The grounds, pool and jacuzzi were very clean. Every room had a balcony with an ocean view, couldn't ask for anything more. If you want a relaxing stress free getaway this is the place.
