What a wonderful, relaxing vacation spot. Our family (myself, my wife, and our 3-year old son) stayed at the Kon Tiki Inn this past summer when we needed a quick break from a Los Angeles heat wave. We'd never stayed in Pismo Beach before, and after reading many negative reviews of other area hotels, I was amazed at the unformly glowing reviews of the Kon Tiki here on Tripadvisor. Well, the reviews were right -- the rooms were very clean and quite spacious, plus every one has panoramic ocean/beach views. Great pool and 2 jacuzzis overlooking the beach, too. It's a nice walk (or a very short drive) to the "touristy" heart of Pismo, full of fun and kitschy things to do -- but the Kon Tiki property itself feels like its own secluded oasis, so you get the best of both worlds. As wonderful as the Kon Tiki is, it's not a "full-service hotel" so don't expect amenities like Room Service, but that's not what we were looking for so it wasn't a negative for us (you do get complementary access to the workout gym next door). We met a number of other guests during out 4 day stay, and learned that many of them were "regulars" who stay there several times a year. I can certainly understand why.
