A friend of my wife recommended this place and boy was she right. Each room has an ocean view. You can walk down to the beach via a long strurdy stair case. They have a "real gym" available for us gym fanatics. There is a heated pool and two jacuzzis (no spell check). Rooms are awsome and staff is superb....

The Kon Tiki Inn in Pismo beach is probably one of the best kept secrets on the Central Coast. They don't do a lot of advertising, and it's probably because they don't have to. Word-of-mouth gives them plenty of business. The service is great from the desk clerks to the housekeeping staff. They have nice clean rooms with ocean views...

What a terrific location! On the bluff overlooking the beach and the breakers...112 steps to the sand...very pleasant grounds. Walking distance to several restaurants and a nice dive bar. Wonderful staff! EVERY room faces the ocean and the sunsets are spectacular! There is a small refrigerator in the spacious room!

Each room has a great view of the ocean, could hear the surf all night and this is a plus for me. Beach access is through a long stairway. Older hotel but well maintained. Great grassy area around pool and hot tubs. Rooms are a little small but if I stayed for several days would only sleep in the room...

The view from the room is amazing, the gorgeous sunset and the sound of the ocean - fantastic. The staff was very friendly. The room was clean and the bed was comfy. However, the hotel is older and the decor is outdated. The water in the shower did not get hot, they provided a teeny bottle of shampoo for 3...

Every winter we leave the Oregon coast and go to Pismo for warmth and sun. We always seem to find it, and we always stay at the Kon Tiki. We have stayed in different rooms over the years, and all offer spectacular views, and private sun balconies facing arguably the best cliffside plateau view of close-by Pismo Beach pier and...

I stayed 2 days in this wonderful hotel with my family in December 2011. Everyone agreed that Kon Tiki Inn was the best hotel we stayed during our 3 weeks vacation. The hotel looks like a motel but in my opinion it has the standard of a 4-star hotel. It is located right off the beach and every room faces...

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
