We stayed here as part of a Christmas break mini-vacation. The Kon Tiki had been recommended by longtime family friends and we were so glad we followed their advice! The view is exactly what you'd hope for in a beach getaway. No standing in a corner craning your neck to view a sliver of the Pacific from your "ocean view"...

I usually stay in the high end/high price hotels. Well, I've heard sooo much of Kon Tiki over the years that I had to try it. Sooo glad I did. It's a simple hotel for a super great price. Rooms were clean and spacious. I will only stay here from now on and no other place when I visit Pismo...

My husband and I have been staying at the Kon Tiki for many years. We go at least once a year and sometimes twice. The rooms are not fancy but they are clean and comfortable. I love that every room has a full view of the ocean. We always ask for an upper floor room so we can sit on...

All the rooms have an ocean view!! This one has a private beach access as well. Good breakfast and decent rooms. The pool was heated and there are two jacuzzis. The place is close to piano restaurants and SLO downtown.

I almost don't want to give it the five stars so I can keep this place to myself and not let everyone know how wonderful this place is. The staff is wonderful and although the rooms are a little dated they are clean and the views are absolutely amazing! Feels like you are on a tropical island just a few...

We've been coming to the Kon Tiki Inn for several years at this time of year. The winter rates are very good and frequently the weather is wonderful. Every room in the hotel faces the ocean and with the lovely pool and jacuzzi below and the swaying palms all over the property, the view is spectacular! Even if it's raining,...

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
