We stayed here one night. The room had a fabulous ocean view. The rooms were nice and clean. The decor was a little bit dated.

Just getting around to writing this review from January as we are looking into planning another trip to Pismo Beach. We couldn't have had a more pleasant stay at this hotel. The staff is friendly. The complimentary breakfast buffet is delicious -- and a REAL breakfast, not just toast a fruit. The view from our room was to die for....

My family and I keeping going back to the Kon Tiki Inn. We would never stay anywhere else while in Pismo. Although the rooms are dated, they are extremely clean and well taken care of. You can't beat the view of every room in the hotel, right to the ocean! We love staying on the 1st floor so the kids...

What's not to like?!! I spent two nights at the Kon Tiki Inn just to get away from everything and relax. The service was some of the best I've ever received from a hotel from the minute I called to make my reservation until I checked out. Everyone I encountered was friendly and helpful and seemed to genuinely care about...

We have been staying at the Kon Tiki Inn for about six years now. There is an oceanview from every room which is amazing. We usually go during the winter for my husband's birthday. The rates are excellent. We love everything about the Kon Tiki...the location, the breakfast and especially, the view.

The location of this hotel right on Pismo Beach is great. The main pier is about a 10 minute walk down the beach from the hotel. The views from the rooms are lovely and the balconies are a great addition. As can be seen from several of the photos, the sunsets are magnificent. The downside is that the rooms are...

This hotel is a favorite of many visiting Pismo Beach, I wish it wasn't, it is hard to get a room in the summer they get booked up a year in advance! One annoying problem is that they only take reservations by calling the hotel directly and no website nor travel site booking at all,to compare prices. But if you...

Can't say enough good things about the Kon Tiki - great staff, everyone very friendly and helpful. Room was very nice, very comfortable beds. Cleaning staff did a great job, room clean by noon every day and very thorough. Included breakfast is a great deal, lots of choices, well stocked, everything yummy. Access to health club across the parking lot...

We stay here for two or three days every summer. We would stay longer, but summer rates are high. You are right on the ocean with a view from every room. There is a large grassy area with a pool and two hot tubs. The place is older, but they keep it up nicely. The employees are all well above...
