    Historical Traveler Reviews Kon Tiki Inn Pismo Beach

    Perfect

    from

    This hotel was the best!!!! Every room is oceanfront with a view that anyone would die for. With screened patios, you can close the curtains and still have the effect of the waves crashing. Not too far from the pier, you can have a nice walk on the beach, see the pier, and go shopping all in about an hour.....Then have all day to take in the rest of the beach. I would recommend this hotel to anyone in a heartbeat.

    Awesome Beach Front Rooms and Terrific Staff

    from

    I stayed at the Kon Tiki and was astounded at the fantastic views, excellent service and relaxing surroundings. What a bargain!

    Great bang for your buck

    from

    On a recent stay my girlfriend and I were pleasantly surprised by the rather large room, with reclining love seat (two recliners) with view of the ocean.

    The other reviews touch on the great aspects of this hotel - reasonable price, beach access, view, balconies, etc. Considering the neighboring hotels charge almost twice as much for essentially the same view, this is a good deal.

    A couple things to note & be aware of:

    * There are 3 floors (with a few rooms under gables on the 4th.) Note that the first floor room's balconies essentially open up onto the lawn/pool area so there is less privacy. However, this might be an excellent option for a larger group staying in multiple rooms. It provides a place to congregate just outside the rooms.

    * There are no enclosed hallways, ie. it is motel style entry to your room.

    * While clean and spacious, the marine-themed decor in the rooms is getting a bit dated.

    However, we would not hesitate to recommend it and plan to return.

    Great location and beach

    from

    Drove by the Kon Tiki Inn on our way through to find lodging while we were driving down the California coast. The room was clean and had a definite sea/tropical theme. Bathroom was a little small and needed some updating. Room had a small fridge (which is always a plus).

    The pool and hot tub area were right behind our room and looked nice (we didn't go in).

    The best part was the ocean-view and beach. You have to walk down a long flight of stairs to get down to the beach, but it's well worth it.

    Very romantic setting and we got some really nice shots of the water, birds and sunset. The beach itself is expansive and you can go for a nice walk.

    The Dream !!!

    from

    My husband, my 4year-old and I went to Pismo Beach for the first time in April 2004 - We stayed at the Kon Tiki for 5 days and 4 nights, and we had the most wonderful stay you can imagine! All rooms have gorgeous ocean views with private balcony where you can enjoy the view while having a drink, they're clean and well maintained, the staff is very friendly and professional about everything - You can enjoy the heated pool or the spas, complimentary pass to the athlectic club nextdoor, take a few stairs to walk and play on the beach - It's family friendly and great for children: Our son had a blast over there! We were very sad to leave that place, I wish they had a membership program! We sure will return to this gem!

    Great spot!

    from

    This place is not much too look at when you just drive by, but is a great hotel to stay at. The restaurant next door is great, rooms are clean -- pool is enclosed with a clear gate all-around -- even if the wind is whippin' and it is cold -- if the sun is shining you feel like you are in Palm Springs! I've stayed three different times in the last year.

    You're going to love this place!

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the Kon Tiki Inn for 4 nights over the Veteran's Day weekend. It was recommended by friends that stay there every year...... I can see why. Every room has an oceanview with balcony. There were 2 beds in our room (1 king and 1 double) The room was spacious with lots of drawer space. There was an additional sink(with mirror) outside of the bathroom, which made it nice for 2 people getting ready to go in the morning. There was also a mini refrigerator next to the second sink. The room was clean. The staff was very pleasant. The grounds are well maintained. There is a nice pool and 2 spas. A long stairway leads down to a beautiful, wide sandy beach. The continental breakfast was adequate (bagels, pastry, toast, bananas,apples,coffee, tea,cocoa, juice) A microwave available to heat your pastry. The continental breakfast is served next door at Steamer's restaurant. We took our food back to our room and enjoyed the view while eating and watched the surfers. When we go back to Pismo Beach again we will definitely stay here and highly recommend it. There are 4 suites but another couple told us that the rooms are the same, they just have a fireplace.... so don't bother to pay the additional money.

    This hotel is very conveniently located. A short walk to downtown Pismo and lots of restaurants.

    Best Deal In Pismo

    from

    Best views in Pismo. Everytime I have stayed here, which is several, the service and accomodations are consistent. The availability of the full service gym and spa are fabulous. Debbie gives the best massages.

    Steamers Restaurant is the best in all of Pismo. We have dinner every night there. Again, their service and consistency as well is top rated.

    Planning a trip there in November and can't wait for my little get away.

    Gorgeous ocean view and access

    from

    Kon Tiki Inn is simply the best value in Pismo. Every room has a full ocean view and you can hear the ocean roar from your room. You have steps that take you right down to the beach and you can walk the beach which takes you to the Pier and restaurants and shops. They have a pool and spa that directly overlooks the ocean.They have a great restaurant also with ocean views right next door and they serve continental breakfast every morning. For the price, just over $100 a night, you can't beat it. We have stayed there for years and it just gets better and better. We have stayed in much pricer hotels on the same street (Price Street) that don't offer beach access or the close up view of the ocean. We won't stay anywhere else.

    The Best in Pismo

    from

    I have stayed at many different motels and hotels in Pismo and I have found the Kon Tiki to be the best price wise and have the best staff.

    They have always been very accomodating.

    As we were there we decided to undertake the famous, 17 mile drive. It's actually 8 1/2 miles, I guess you're expected to turn around at the end and drive back again.
