There is a small refrigerator in the room and a flat screen cable TV as well. The staff are friendly and our room was very... More

As someone else stated you are paying for location. It is directly adjacent to Dutch Wonderland. You cannot possible stay any closer than if you pitched a tent in their parking lot. It is also smack in the middle of Rockvale and Tanger Outlets, and you will be amongst all the restaurants on E Lincoln Highway. The grounds in the... More

I stay here every year only because its cheap and its located across the street from a convention I go to. The check in staff is not very helpful, can never change your room location, the place is very outdated even though it seems the rooms have been redone. The free breakfast buffet might be the only good thing they... More

We found this gem after arriving and finding that Red Roof had cancelled our reservations for 2 rooms for 2 days. They gave us adjoining rooms for a reasonable rate. It is an older hotel but both rooms were clean including under the beds. We had a fridge but no microwave. They serve a full cooked breakfast for 2 and... More

Me, my husband and our son stayed at the continental inn for our son's 6th birthday on July 30th. This was our first stay at the hotel and we probably would come back. The hotel is an old fashioned hotel, kind of outdated. Sort of reminded me of an old Jersey shore hotel/motel. Our room was very clean and the... More

Had been coming here since my kids were little. This place has a very good location and the indoor and outdoor pools were nice. But the last three visits were terrible. The staff is so rude. When we went to breakfast the last two times it appeared to be an inconvenience for them. My daughter asked for egg whites and... More

My family and I have been staying at the Continental Inn for quite a few years. It's an absolutely wonderful hotel! We wouldn't even think about staying anywhere else when visiting Dutch Country. Staff members are always kind, helpful, and professional. In fact, many of them feel like extended family members to us. The hotel itself is perfect for everyone.... More
