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

Bathrooms were dirty, base of the bathtub was black and had someone else's hair in it we had to wear flip flops to get a shower, blankets stunk and were dirty, we had to lay our own blankets down to sleep on and for pillows to. Not worth the 130$. We didn't even stay for the free breakfast we wanted... More

We stayed here for a weekend for over 10 years in a row and loved it! My kids still talk about our fun times there. Pay extra to face the pool area. We always eat breakfast there too. The rooms are basic but the grounds are worth the stay. Bring your own pillows and pool toys. The hotel is close... More

I have been going to The Continental Inn since I was a child. I loved it and now my children love it. The grounds are beautiful, spacious and well kept. Indoor and outdoor pools, jacuzzi, sauna, shuffle board, ping pong and arcade give them plenty to do. The breakfast is great, especially on buffet days. The location could not be... More

My husband and I have stayed in many different hotels and locals in the many trips we make to Amish Country in PA. The Continental Hotel, on Route 30, next door to Dutch Wonderland, was a wonderful experience. The room was clean and had a fridge. There was a pool on site, indoor, and another outdoor one, but we were... More

Picking up cars at Manheim Auto Auction. Plenty of parking space for truck and trailer (F350 Dually and 36' gooseneck). Excellent price, good clean room, friendly staff. Lots of amenities that I did not use.Close to several good restaurants. Will stay here again when in area.

If you are Lancaster this a very central hotel. Very nice pool area and game room. The rooms are average and not the cleanest I've stayed at. They do offer breakfast included with the price. Eggs, waffles or French Toast. You are 10 minutes from sight and sound theater, bird in hand and intercourse pa.

Do not bother. Terrible staff, bad food. Unclean rooms. Maids even hate the manager. Woman in charge of restaurant thinks she is doing u a favor working there. The only thing that is good is the location. In the service there were better accommodations in Iraq then this hotel. I am amazed this place passes the health code inspections. Also... More
