We have been going to Kon Tiki Inn for over 25 years! It has the best prices - best views and short stair walk to the beach. The down side to the place is the rooms haven't changed decor - well the flat screen tv and white bed spread is the only thing that has changed. The decor needs to...

We stayed at the hotel in september with a service animal.The staff was very nice and engaging but the manager of the hotel is very unwellcoming. My guess is other vacationeers probably complained, not understanding the law. Stay elsewhere nearby Pismo Suites,Seacrest or Cottage Inn

Best bang for your buck! Honestly... I bet money you cannot find a better ocean view room for the price we paid. We just stayed at the Kon Tiki over Labor Day weekend to celebrate a birthday and our recent engagement. Every room has a balcony with ocean view. Comfortable bed, clean large room, basic amenities. Pool and Hot Tubs...

What a great hotel. We decided to stay at Pismo Beach on driving from San Fran to LA due to Bugs Bunny goes there on holidays (haha)!! The room rate was very good given the quality of the hotel. I am sure others in the area would be more expensive. After looking at reviews on TA, picked the Kon Tiki...

I am not joking when I say I have stayed at Kontiki in about 15 times. Our family comes to Pismo on average of three times a year. We have done this for about five years. We stay at Kon Tiki most of the time, but we have stayed at Seacrest Resort twice as well. Don't expect five-star accommodations at...

First off, this is a great place. Beautiful views, clean rooms, and friendly staff. BUT…… We called this hotel based on a recommendation from a relative that has stayed here before. Being that I have asthma and am allergic to smoke, the 1st question we asked was is this a smoke free facility? The answer was absolutely! The only place...

Not the Four Seasons, but very, very nice hotel. Especially for a beach front hotel. Close to downtown Pismo Beach. Great views. Access to the beach via a long staircase. Nice pool and a super hot tub. Very friendly staff. Occasional whale and dolphin sightings. I'd definitely stay here again.

My wife and I stayed at the Kon Tiki Inn in Pismo Beach for five nights. We were blessed with the fourth floor penthouse room which included a gas burning fireplace.

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
