San Francisco to Pismo Beach on the Pacific Highway
The plan today was a 5-6 hour longish drive on the old US1 coast road and to get about three quarters of the way to LA so we picked Pismo Beach last night and booked a nice looking place. Up bright and early, had a quick chat to Vic on Skype and IM to Meg at the same time …
Onto the final stretch now! Leisurely brekkie in Monterey and in the car heading south after 10am. Stopped at a few of the lookouts as the scenery is stunning down the coast. Also stopped to look at a beach packed full of elephant seals sunning themselves they obviously all like the same piece of beach even tho there was a whole huge coastline to choose from. Lunch was in a quaint little town which had lots of shoppy shops and a couple ...
... in australia and new caledonia…. The one thing you can be sure of is that no matter where the beach is in the world, Elodie and Rowan will end up covered in head-to-toe sand, Elodie will eat the sand, Rowan will throw some and we’ll all end up with it stuck to suncream on every inch of our bodies. It’s so awful in so many ways yet the babies are so happy we keep going back for ...
... to head. Wanting to save gas, we opened the windows and headed off. It wasn't long before we realized we needed to turn on th air. I continued to drive, while Di played with buttons. It was no before we were blasted with cool air and I was feeling much better. However, Di kept adjusting buttons to get cooler. I couldn't figure this out as I was now chilly, but let her amuse herself with playing. ...

Today we drove to Pismo beach, CA
This morning I was pretty tired because we went to bed at 12:05 last night. Once I woke up I went to breakfast. Then we brought all of our stuff that was in the Marriott back to the RV. When we finished bringing our things into the RV I was a little ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kon Tiki Inn Pismo Beach
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
I stayed at the Kon Tiki and was astounded at the fantastic views, excellent service and relaxing surroundings. What a bargain!
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.
Great location and beach
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 !!!
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!
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.
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.
Best Deal In Pismo
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
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
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.
