First time at Pismo. The Kon Tiki Inn was fabulous. The room was very comfortable, staff was very nice. The grounds, pool and jacuzzi were very clean. Every room had a balcony with an ocean view, couldn't ask for anything more. If you want a relaxing stress free getaway this is the place.

A good standard hotel that doesn't pretend to be something it's not. Traditional decor and good sized rooms. Great level of customer service and very clean throughout. Stunning location, which was the main reason for choosing. Nice pool but quite cold. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The view is worth the stay here but not sure if I would plan to spend more than a night here. Not much privacy and walls are a bit thin but if you are driving up (or down) the coast, a easy and convenient place to stop. Take the stairs down the cliff to the water and discover the caves....

Had another good stay. We love being close to so much up and down the coast. The pool and whirlpools are nice. The grounds are nicely landscaped. But it is the VIEW! You have an ocean view from every room!

We were just here for 3 nights; our first time. What a wonderful place! We had beautiful weather so we could spend the day by the sparkling clean pool. This is a fabulous place for children--they play in the pool and hot tubs and toddlers are safe on the lawn. The walk to the pier isn't more than 20 minutes,...

What a great place to stay! Perfect location! Right on the beach, just a short walk from downtown Pismo. Great views!! Great staff! So friendly and happy to help in every way. They obviously take great pride in the property and service they provide. Spotlessly clean rooms, very quiet and a great continental breakfast. And parking included! No bookings online,...

This is by far the best motel in Pismo Beach. My husband and I have stayed at many places but won’t go anywhere else from now on. All rooms have an ocean view. If you want to avoid being close to the pool, ask for a room on the north end. An upper room has the best views. Excellent beach...

Here are our observations: Room: Basic motel-type room (door opens from outside not internal hall) containing one King and one Queen bed, small "kitchen" area including mini-fridge and additional washbasin. We requested and received a small microwave...

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
