Took my daughter to CalPoly's new student open house, it is a 10-15 minute drive to SLO. I have been staying at the KonTiki inn for over twenty years. The rooms all have ocean views, they are very clean and it is within walking distance of the town.

The Kon Tiki Inn has been a family favorite for years. It is close to everything you want to see and do in Pismo Beach. Stayed here over Mother's Day weekend (May 2017) The staff is always wonderful. TIP: Book locally, you will find that you will usually get better rates direct than with a booking forum. We always do....

Just got back from a two night stay at the Kon Tiki Inn and we were not disappointed. Have a very nice room, ground floor overlooking the pool and of course the ocean as all rooms have an ocean view. Very friendly and efficient front desk, typical continental breakfast which was well attested to by staff. We were even able...

Can't say enough good things about this place. My wife and I stayed here for two days. The room was very nice with a great view. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was continental but was quite good. The pool and hot tub were nice and well maintained. This is the place I will stay on my return to Pismo Beach.

This hotel is great. It's a throwback to the 60's but is super clean and comfortable. We were told to stay here by someone I trust so I blindly booked it. We were so happy with the room and how nice the staff was that we started to wonder why they didn't charge more. The walk to the beach was...

I have driven past the Kon Tiki a few times over the years, and have tried to book a room when it was busy and I just never made a firm plan. I finally stayed and I just loved it! From the minute I walked into the reception area, I knew I had found the right place for me. Very...

The Kon Tiki Inn is absolutely the only place I will stay at in Pismo Beach. It is easy to find and right off the 101 but you don't hear the freeway. The rooms are spotless, beds are comfortable and each room has a magnificent view of the ocean. You can hear the waves crashing the entire time you are...

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
