The room was huge with a room safe, fridge, and a balcony overlooking a white sanded beach. Beds were so comfortable and slept great with the sounds of the surf through our sliding doors. Two hot tubs and a pool with a view of the beach. A rather steep 100 plus steps to the beach. We would definitely a great deal. Wish that Pismo Beach had more to offer. If you want to hang by a gorgeous beach and sleep great, this is your place. Loved Steamers, next door. Breakfast not bad at all.

We stayed here for two nights and were gutted that we didn't have more nights to spend here. Our room was immaculately clean, with pleasant modern furnishings, the balcony had a wonderful panoramic view of the ocean, as do all rooms. I was worried that the noise of the waves might keep me awake but, once the patio door to the balcony was closed, I couldn't hear the waves at all. I got two loads of laundry done in the guest laundry, (which came in useful when our flight home was cancelled a couple of days later!) Breakfast was great, everything very fresh,we all made waffles and had fruit & yogurt, then couldn't resisit the pastries/muffins!
There are steps down to thebeach and we all enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub while watching the surfers in the ocean.
Staff were all very friendly and helpful. We were sorry when we had to leave.
If we're ever back in the area we'll definitely stay here again.

This is a well-managed motel with great views and complimentary parking and breakfast. There is also beach access down a long staircase. All-in-all a good place.

This is our first time at the Kon Tiki Inn and will definitely not be our last. It is conveniently located close to everything. Downtown Pismo is superr close and you can basically walk to the pier. The view at the Kon Tiki is breathtaking!! The staff are wonderful! Overall, it is awesome so do not hesitate to stay here!! You won't be sorry!

California Surf Town USA. The Kon Tiki is a tremendous hotel. It has an awesome view of the California Coast Line. It is perfect for sunsets and chillaxing. The pool is in a great area and the staff is very helpful. Enjoy your stay at the Kon Tiki!!

Even the hotel is older the balcony views are amazing! The rooms are clean but basic. Comfortable bed and it was quiet. The pool and hot tubs are ocean front as are all of the rooms. We would stay again for the peaceful, beautiful ocean views. Perfect for sitting with a cup of coffee in the morning.

Stayed at the Kon Tiki for the 3rd time Mar. 18-22, 2010. Enjoyable, confortable and relaxing as always. Older hotel very well maintained. Clean bathrooms. All rooms have fabulous ocean views. If you like to walk out of your room and take a few steps to the pool/hot tub, or walk down the steps (119 of them) to the ocean, get a ground floor room. If you want to leave your patio door open to hear the ocean at night, get an upper room. All have outside decks. Staff is friendly and helpful. Lanscaping is beautiful. Quiet atmosphere. Free breakfast, parking. Excellent value. We'll be back.
