Overall, we were very happy with our stay here. The rate were very reasonable, especially mid week. The views from the room were great! Every room has an ocean front view. We were on the second floor which was nice with a balcony, but we were in the center. Being right over the pool area wasn't the best because there were constantly people there so we didn't get any seclusion from our balcony. In the future, we will request a 3rd floor room on the ends for more privacy. The stairway to the beach was very convenient (but tiring!). I had to carry my toddler (and all our beach stuff) down and up the stairs for a good workout.

Overall, not a 5 star hotel but very good value for an ocean view room. VERY nice staff as well. Would have liked free wireless internet access from our rooms but we could do without emails for a couple of days. Didn't get to use the athletic club, but it was a very nice feature to offer free passes to it. And the continental breakfast was basically nothing spectacular but a very decent way to start the day. We will definitely stay there again on our annual trips to Pismo and SLO.

Based on the Tripadvisors reviews we booked two nights at the Kon Tiki Inn, we were allocated Room 110 which was right outside the swimming pool area, we asked to move to a room higher up as the position of this room was right next to the swimming pool which we felt would be noisy, but the hotel was full.

Overall, my first impression was disappointment. I did not think that the room was that nice as it looked like it needed decorating plus the cups in the room were made of plastic. The double patio door that leads to the swimming pool (if you are on the ground floor) did not seem that secure. The noise outside our room was very loud from people standing outside our room having conversations in the early morning (6am ish). One night I could not sleep, as I was worried about the security of the sliding door. The restaurant closed at 9:00 and there was no room service so we ended up driving around to try to find somewhere to eat. In addition, the rooms do not have any movies – so little to do in the evening. The plus points include the Jacuzzi, which stayed open until 10pm, the internet access in reception and the laundry facilities. I feel overall, this hotel was good value for money, - and it did grow on me. I think this hotel is suited to families rather than couples, and in conclusion - nothing special.

My husband and I stayed at the Kon Tiki Inn for three days following our wedding in Santa Barbara wine country. The privacy and peacefulness of the Inn and Pismo Beach was exactly what we craved after six months of wedding planning and four days of wedding celebrations. Every day we opened a bottle of champagne and watched the sunset on the ocean. All it takes is five minutes of listening to the crashing waves and you will be transported. We golfed somewhere new everyday, had breakfast at the Honeymoon Cafe in Pismo every morning (Thanks Aaron - best breakfast burritos and iced latte in the world!) We went wine tasting at the local vineyards and road tripped to Morrow Bay for more golf and lunch on the bay. We went to a GREAT Italian restaurant within walking distance of the Inn. And don't miss the famous cinnamon bun cafe in Pismo (the name escapes me) - they are fabulous! If you are looking for a place to get away from it all and really, really relax and enjoy being with the people you love - this is the place. If you are looking for something glamorous and trendy - look elsewhere.

We stayed here for a couple of nights - it's located right on the beach and the rooms are large, with a refrigerator, which is a nice convenience. The staff was very friendly and there is a basic continental breakfast included (bagels, toast, pastries, juice). The best part is the price ($100) and the fact that you can walk the beach and then into town. They also include a complimentary pass to a full-service gym next door, which is nice if the weather doesn't cooperate. We didn't eat at the restaurant, but it looked very nice. If you like Italian, I would recommend Rose's in town.

This place is a steal! All rooms are facing the beach. We had a king size and full size bed in our room along with a mini fridge. You can swim in the pool or walk down to the beach. We only stayed one night but could have stayed longer.
