This is a beautiful hotel. All rooms have a beach and ocean view and the hotel in located right on the beach. The staff is very helpful and friendly and we loved every minute of our stay. The rooms are very big and there is a small kitchen area where there is a sink and fridge which is useful. Also enjoyed the free internet available to all guests. The pool and hot tubs are located between the pool and the beach so you have a wonderful view of the ocean while you are swimming.There is also plenty to do around the area and we made good use of our time in Pismo beach.
We will definitely be back and would recommend this hotel to anyone!

Loved everything about the hotel -
Price, location, staff hospitality, free breakfast, free gym pass - and priceless 'view' of the ocean.
Hotel should do more on the "Polynesian" motif - didn't really see much 'island' motify around the hotel except for the hotel logo. Nevertheless - I highly recommend this place, my family & I will definitely visit again.

My family of four found this hotel to be quite comfortable and clean. Every room has an ocean front view! We enjoy a hotel with a great pool and although Kon Tiki's was small, it was very clean and both jacuzzis were great to relax in. The grounds were well manicured~ it's apparent that the staff/owners do care about that. ***We would stay hear again in a heart beat!***

A few things to be aware of:
**We didn't have shampoo in our room - so bring your own!
**The continental breakfast included bagels, danish & small muffins, apples and bananas. Coffee and juice. Yogurt or cereal w/milk would have been appreciated - we felt the "carb overload" and chose to forego Kon Tiki's breakfast for something a bit healthier. It's not a bad continental breakfast.........definitely "do-able" ....... just not quite enough "umph" for us!
**The pool towels are small - bring your own beach towels!

We only stayed here for one night on our trip down the coast between San Francisco and San Diego. Having stopped off for some dinner in San Luis Obispo at the Big Sky Cafe (good for vegetarians), we missed out on viewing any glorious sunsets from the hotel which looks out over the beach and across the Pacific.

Our second floor room was large with standard amenities for US hotels/motels. It was clean, with two large beds, bathroom with bath and shower, and a balcony overlooking the palm trees, the beach and ocean. (All of the rooms have balconies).

We were very happy with our choice of accommodation for the price (less than $100 in March).

2 Brtis on a California 3 week road trip, stopping at the Kon Tiki Inn for one night on the way up the coast.

This is an above average motel/hotel, very clean, functional etc as we have become to expect from accomodation in the US. What makes this place stand out is the glorious cliff top location and views. We arrived mid afternoon in our soft top Mustang (gotta do it properly), and spent a lovely day lounging by the pool (complete with resident duck) before having a rather expensive but lovely sandwich next door at Steamers (again views to die for). A lovely stroll along the beach into town to get an ice cream, a romantic walk back to the hotel whilst watching the sun set..... never felt so relaxed and contented. The accomodation almost seemed irrelevant, the setting is so sublime, but we felt it to be absolutely fine and wish most days we were back there.

After checking rates with a few of the other properties along the beach I pulled in here and was offered a rate of $119 but if I was out by 8:00am I could get $20 off as they were renovating the room starting the next day, as I was leaving early anyway this worked out great. After a great night in the room I am still wondering what it is they are doing to renovate the room as they were fine, a little dated maybe but that is part of the Hawaiian theme of the property. View is fantastic, staff was adequate but all in all a great property.

We were on a round-trip coming from Santa Barbara, going to San Francisco, so just stayed here for one night. We took out the seating in our bedroom (canape) and it had both a relax for your feet. So we opened a bottle of wine, set the chair in front of the ocean view in our room and had the most magnificent sunset ever...

The beach is clean, the hosts are friendly. There is a laundry, ice-machine nearby.

If you're looking for a stay at the ocean for let's say 2-week holiday, then maybe you could pick something more luxureous, but I really loved it. Can't say anything bad of the place!
