Kon Tiki Inn
Ranked #5 of 29 Hotels in Pismo Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 February 2013 via mobile

We love getting away to Pismo and the Kin Tiki is our preferred hotel. The staff is exceptional, the location is great and every room has an ocean view. A continental breakfast is included in the rate and the rates are incredibly reasonable. We highly recommend this hotel.

Clean, comfortable, great views. Close to town. Nice pool w 2 spas. Double BarcaLounger in each room. Office very helpful. We had a reunion there. Rooms were booked at separate times, yet they had us lined up all in a row.

Room Tip: Ask for 3rd or 4th floor-spectacular views

We had a great room on the third floor. Wonderful view, balcony, desk and free Wifi, 3 seat laz-boy sofa, flat screen tv. Nice heated pool and two spas, with beach front views! Grounds very well kept and stairs to the beach. Every room seems to have a view but third floor has the best.Staff helpful with recommendations of where to eat and what to see.

Kon TIki Inn is my favorite place to stay (over any place in San Luis Obispo or Pismo). The view is stunning and the value of this hotel is beyond compare. Everyone who works here is so generous and helpful. I am so thankful that they keep the prices reasonable for all of us to enjoy.

As many of the reviewers have already mentioned, the Kon Tiki is probably the best value for your money at Pismo Beach. So stop wasting time and book this place.....you won't regret. Great for either a romantic or family getaway. Having been in "Customer Quality" with Fortune 100 companies for the past 20 years, I look at hotels with a very critical eye, always assessing value for the money.

First impressions of the inn, as you pull into the parking lot may not be that great (3 of 5 stars). The front desk staff were quite friendly and courteous and even though they had very few rooms left ( Sat. Night), they were able to get us a room on the second floor near the middle (5 stars). Almost every room is a ocean view room and at a very competitive price point compared to neighboring properties. The room was spacious with two queens, a 40" HDTV and refrigerator. It was neat and clean though there was a slight musty smell which dispersed after airing the room for a few mins. Rugs were not worn out or stained. Towels were clean and plenty.

Opening the curtains presents you with an awesome view of the Pacific, to rival views in Kauai or Maui. Relax on the patio with the beautiful sound of the surf while the sun sets in a glowing orange ball of flame on the horizon. This is probably worth half the cost of the room! A big pool complemented by two jacuzzi's almost at the edge of the cliff, overlooking the ocean. I was impressed by the frequent rounds by security personnel during evening and even at 11 pm when I went for a walk on the property. Access to the pool and beach is by using your room entry card key. (5 stars for security).

We paid $148 with tax which was a bit pricey but very competitive for a Saturday stay. Comparable ocean view rooms in the area for hotels in the same class go north of $180. I researched over 15 properties in the area and by staying at the Kon Tiki you can have your cake and eat it too! We will be back soon!

Room Tip: Second or third floor towards the middle. Room 215

This place was AMAZING! I tend to think of myself as a hotel-snob, and was beyond pleasantly surprised by the views from every single room. The pool was an amazing temperature and the entire facility was exceptionally clean. Most of my love for this place came from the cost! It may be one of my favorite places to stay in the US.

There isn't much more to say other than I will absolutely be a return visitor to this gem of a hotel. Love love loved it!

Room Tip: Every room is excellent. Rooms in the middle (211-215 etc) of the hotel on the 2-4th floors will hav...
