We have stayed at the Kon Tiki several times in the past but we were disappointed in the attitude of the office staff this year. Our reservation was made several months in advance & of course we expected tp get tjhe normal king size bed with a sofa in the room that we have always had in the past. Instead what they gave us was a room with 1 king size bed & 1 full size bed (this was for 2 adults). When we went back to the office to inquire about it we were told in a rather sarcastic manner that we did have a king size bed as well as a full size bed to go along with it but we did not have the sofa which we wanted as were staying several nights & it is a nice way to relax after a busy day. We were told that nothing else was available (after making the reservation several months in advance - hard to believe) but that we could keep checking back to see if something became available. Who wants to keep packing & unpacking? Can't understand why they didn't give this room to a reservation with more people. We also mentioned the disappointment in the room to the office staff when we checked out & again we were told that all their rooms have king size beds (agiain in a sarcastic manner) but they did say that they would put it on our record that we preferred to have a sofa in the room. After all the years we have stayed with them we were disappointed but we will give them another chance. We also would like to see them add more to their continental breakfast, perhaps cereals & more fruit. The apples were very small. All in all we had a wonderful stay at the Kon Tiki & the housekeeping staff was great. Our room was always immaculate when we returned to it. The view is fantastic & it's nice to hear the sound of the ocean at night. We did not let the disappointment in our room ruin our stay & we would definitely recommend the Kon Tiki to anyone planning on staying in Pismo Beach as we have always done in the past.
