The room was clean, the bed was soft, the fireplace in our suite warmed up our room after having the patio door opened to feel the cool breeze from the ocean and be inspired by the view! Lots of places to eat within walking distance.

Room Tip: All rooms have a view of the ocean!!!

Stayed at the Kon Tiki for one night on a road trip last summer. The hotel in on a bluff above the beach (steps, walkway take you to the sand), all rooms have an ocean view, wonderful. Room interiors a little dated - otherwise 5 stars - but very clean. You have to call for pricing, rates are well below nearby hotels with similar views, and the staff is very friendly. I can't wait to go back.

Wow, we were so happy to have found this place. The views are phenomenal. We had a ground level room that opened up to the ocean and ocean front pool and hot tubs. This is a place that you expect to pay more than we did; this is the best oceanfront value. The rooms are comfortable too as they are spacious with a king and queen bed and plenty of room for luggage. If you need an ocean fix this is it!

Room Tip: All rooms are oceanfront.

We just had a very pleasant 5 day stay at the Kon Tiki Inn and recommend it. The room we stayed in was very spacious, clean and comfortable. As others have noted, the view is wonderful. It's a short walk to town (either by beach or street). The restaurant next door (Steamers) is also nice. It was our first visit to Pismo Beach but hopefully it won't be our last and next time we visit, we will stay at the Kon Tiki (all the staff were very friendly and helpful)

We just had a family group of 20 mini-reunion in Pismo. Booked 7 ground floor rooms. Kon Tiki staff was very accommodating making sure we were all in close proximity to each other. Grounds were perfect for visiting and for having 7 "littles" play. Only one family in our group had stayed there before but we will all be back. Sunset was spectacular and we could watch it right from our patio...or the hot tub. The pool was warm enough for all the kids to swim, in January!!! The hot tubs were awesome...love the windows surrounding them that you can open and let the beach breeze in. The 100+ steps down to the beach were not a problem at all. Kon Tiki has to be my new favorite place to stay.

Staff on phone or in person are very customer focused and pleasant. Room is large with fridge and coffee pot. Large selection at included continental breakfast. Incredible ocean view from all rooms. Heater worked great because it was freezing out. My husband is picky about hotels and he liked it.

Room Tip: 4th floor rooms have fireplaces for a few dollars more

We stayed in one of the top floor rooms at the Kon Tiki Inn and it was terrific. The view of the Pacific Ocean was beautiful all day but especially at sunset. The room was comfortable. We appreciated that it had a kitchenette so we could eat breakfast and prepare happy hour snacks. This hotel is family friendly. The ground floor rooms open onto a grassy area and out to the pool. When we were there the hotel was packed with families and we enjoyed watching the children below from our third floor vantage point.
