Stayed one night at the Kon Tiki Inn in Pismo Beach on our way to Santa Barbara from the Bay Area. Great place at the right price. All rooms have ocean views with private balconies (ask for the third floor for evern more scenic view). Just a few feet from the beach and near the pier. Right next door is...

Free breakfast in the morning - waffles, bagels, cereal, etc. The staff were very nice. We were on the second floor so we could leave our doors open and hear the waves all night. They...

This was our first stop on a 3 night coastal drive from LA to SF. Was a good size room with a great view of the beach and a comfortable bed. Price was decent and breakfast was modest, but ok for free. Probably wish we had a bit more time to enjoy the beach. Would recommend.

Love this place, always consistently good service and very accommodating to our requests, including asking people to smoke in designated areas. Great for families, especially younger children. Will stay nowhere else!

We have stayed here once a year for many years and find the friendliness of the staff and the cleaniness of the property are always consistent. The vibe of the hotel agrees with the laid back feel of Pismo. Also, the views from all the rooms couldn't be better and direct access to the beach make long walks in the...

best hotel for the money in Pismo beach. We go there 4 - 5 times a year and it is always great. every room has ocean view. get a room on the first floor and walk out of your room and down the stairs right to the beach.

Stayed for 2 nights with my sisters and simply fell in love with the place. It's not fancy, but it's clean, comfy and affordable. Stayed on the first floor, loved that all rooms have an ocean view. We felt safe enough to keep the door open at night to sleep to the sound of waves. Great location, just a beach...

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
