Verified Reviews of Contenta Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Nice pool and bed is comfortable."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
horrible shower and difficult to manage live TV.

23-Jul-2020 Verified Review, stayed from Mon Jul 20 to Fri Jul 24 2020 at a $125.05 average nightly rate.
"A Bad Hotel for Tourists."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
This hotel may be fine for locals but I don't suggest it for those not familiar with the area. Firstly, just locating the hotel in the blinding darkness on a winding unlit, one lane road was so frightening. When we got there our nerves were shot and surprisingly, the office was closed. Someone assisted us via phone with the key which was in a lock box. Wish I had been informed of these hours when I made the reservation. We were visiting Big Sur and needed an economical place to stay two nights. For breakfast the next morning, I asked at the front desk and was told that there were no nearby options. I guess I should have checked this before booking. Lastly, service within the room was nonexistent. Nothing could be done about a malfunctioning TV set. I decided to cut my losses and leave a day early, causing me to lose over $200. The guy who answers the phone was a horror to work with. Poor service was the worst thing about this experience. On a positive note, the grounds were beautiful and the room was clean. The decor is out of date hippie wicker. If that's what you're into, you'll love it.

"Bad experience with septic water."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
On the first day, during showering the toilet overflowed and flooded the floor with unsanitary water. We were moved to another room but given no refund. The overall hotel experience was pretty middling, pretty bad for the price that we paid (200 a night).
