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...

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 Kon Tiki Inn is RIGHT on the cliff above the gorgeous stretch of Pismo Beach, north of the pier. Every room has a full on sea view. The heated pool is right above the beach. And it costs only $95 a night!!! Couldn't believe our luck.

My family and I had a fabulous time at the Kon Tiki Inn. The positives: the location, grounds, and view are outstanding, the staff are the most friendly and efficient I've encountered anywhere, it is quiet, and the breakfast and pool are good. The negatives: there really aren't any except maybe a little over-chlorination of the hot tub that caused...

Beautiful view rooms, clean rooms, and gorgeous sunsets at night. This is the place if you are looking for a romantic getaway. We will definitely be going back. I have stayed at a lot of hotels in Pismo and this is by far one of the best! To top it off it is affordable.

Great location, great breakfast and super friendly staff. We will definitely be back. The sunsets are worth the price and then some. We go on vacation every winter and will make the Kon Tiki part of our family tradition.

One need not go to Hawaii to enjoy a tropical paradise. The Kon Tiki Inn is located high on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It has a swimming pool and two hot tubs from which one can look out over the ocean. All rooms face the water, so there isn't a bad room to be found. Our room had...

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
