This was our first stop on a 3 night coastal drive from LA to SF. Was a good size room with a great view of the beach and a comfortable bed. Price was decent and breakfast was modest, but ok for free. Probably wish we had a bit more time to enjoy the beach. Would recommend.

Love this place, always consistently good service and very accommodating to our requests, including asking people to smoke in designated areas. Great for families, especially younger children. Will stay nowhere else!

We have stayed here once a year for many years and find the friendliness of the staff and the cleaniness of the property are always consistent. The vibe of the hotel agrees with the laid back feel of Pismo. Also, the views from all the rooms couldn't be better and direct access to the beach make long walks in the...

best hotel for the money in Pismo beach. We go there 4 - 5 times a year and it is always great. every room has ocean view. get a room on the first floor and walk out of your room and down the stairs right to the beach.

Stayed for 2 nights with my sisters and simply fell in love with the place. It's not fancy, but it's clean, comfy and affordable. Stayed on the first floor, loved that all rooms have an ocean view. We felt safe enough to keep the door open at night to sleep to the sound of waves. Great location, just a beach...

If you are looking for a good value and you don't require frills like room service then this is the place for you! Staff was friendly helpful,rooms were clean. If you require a place with new furniture and paint and matching umbrellas at the pool then again not for you. The breakfast was perfect for us. We are a family...

We recently spent 2 nights and loved it!:) Very happy with the location - enjoyed walking on the beach. Rooms are nice and clean-nothing fancy but great ocean view, deck off room and loved having the sliding door open all night to enjoy the waves crashing. We would stay again!

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel last october as part of our honeymoon. Nothing fancy about it but nice spacious bedroom with a view to die for, we had only booked 2 nights but would have loved to be able to stay longer. Everthing was clean, it was peaceful and the breakfast in the morning was great. Will...

We love to stay here and have for about 10 years. All rooms have ocean views and are very comfortable and clean. Staff is friendly and very helpful. The continental breakfast is a normal fare for hotel breakfasts nothing special. A nice walk on the beach will take you downtown to lots of places to eat and shop. Will return...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Swaying palms, a smooth sandy beach and the sounds of the Pacific Ocean all welcome you to the Kon Tiki Inn, where every room features a panoramic ocean view. Located on the coastline midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, our oceanfront inn is perched on a bluff overlooking the stunning and serene Pacific Ocean. From the comfort of your guest room watch a glorious sunset or catch a glimpse of a whale. During the day choose from a variety of outdoor activities and at night fall asleep to the rhythmic sound of ocean waves.The guest room décor reflects our seaside location with a neutral and ocean-toned palette accented by natural wood, tropical prints, and rich detail. Our hotel features rooms with one king bed or one king with one queen bed. ... more   less
