I went to PA three years straight with my family. All three times I stayed at the Continental Inn. The first time around it worked out like a charm as the kids were young enough to be satisfied with the lack of modernized entertainment. The game room was simple and just about every game was broken each year I went,... More

We arrived to a very dimly lit sketchy parking lot, not very welcoming. A few of the staff members were lounging in the customer waiting area on their cell phones and watching Television. Which I though was kind of unprofessional. So then we got to our room. It looked like it hadn't been cleaned. There was hair clips on the... More

Stayed overnight with my family while visiting the Lancaster, Hershey Park area. Staff could not have been better, plenty of parking, great grounds and amenities. The issue is room. Very old furnishings and bathroom, circa 1970. Didn't have a clean look to it due to its age. Mattresses very soft and floppy.

Just stayed at Continental Inn this week. The rooms are very old and they have doors straight out to the parking lot or play area. We had a room on the parking lot side, which was very noisy. People walked by the windows late at night or very early in the morning disrupting our sleep. This is the first hotel... More

We decided to stay in Lancaster because it is in the heart of Amish Country which was the reason for our visit. The room was reasonable for a two night stay, arriving late the first night. The staff was very helpful with directions on how to get to where we wanted to go, and good places to eat. The breakfast... More

This hotel was right next to Dutch Wonderland (didn't even need our car!) and only a 30 minute easy drive to Hershey Park. They had a fun outdoor pool and a basic indoor pool (although the kids loved the jacuzzi, sauna, and games in the pool building!). The breakfast was delicious - basic hotel food with good eggs, bacon, pancakes,... More
