The surrounding area is gorgeous and restaurants in the little village below met our varied tastes. Accommodations were clean but very basic. Quiet, sort of cabin-like. Nothing special. About 1 hour from Big Sur/ 45 minutes to Bixby Bridge.
Adorable place with a retro vibe! Clean room & adorable patio. We had a very quiet stay. Only complaint was the lack of microwave in the room as the lobby closes very early. Other than that, we loved this place! Would definitely stay again.
We had a lovely stay at Contenta Inn. Upon arrival the lady manager was extremely helpful and gave us a newly refurbished room which was EXCELLENT. Clean, spacious, lovely bathroom and led out onto the pool and garden area. The room was cleaned and spotless every day with fresh towels. The breakfast was in a lovely dining area and plenty of choice (continental). The position of the property was just off the main street, with ample parking and within very easy walking distance to plenty of choice of places to eat and drink or try wine tasting. From this base we drove to Monterey and Carmel but can honestly say that Carmel Valley was the best as the weather was clear and sunny here but not by the coast which remained partly cloudy/misty. I would thoroughly recommend a stay at this property as a perfect base for exploring or relaxing.…
Very overpriced hotel. Bathroom full of spiders and ants, bathroom door lock was broken. Faucets did not function properly. Some electrical outlets not working. Minimal breakfast. Pool was dirty. Everything poorly maintained. A 80 dollar hotel for 180 dollars!
The Contenta Inn has an untold amount of deferred maintenance, repairs, and lack of upgrades. One example is the parking lot is full of tall weeds growing thru the cracks and potholes. As a result, the prices charged for the rooms far exceeds the value received.
