The location is great because it's near Dutch Wonderland and other attractions. Their grounds are well kept and breakfast is included which is always especially with a family. However, the rooms are not updated and not clean. Carpets are old with stains same with bed spreads, really not appealing to sleep in the bed. There was 1 sheet covering the... More

Nice basic hotel, reasonably priced for the area in Summer. Not in Lancaster proper but about 10 minutes by car to the city center. Close to Dutch Wonderland. The rooms were fine with a frig but no microwave. Many restaurants close by. Outdoor pool and indoor pool (we didn't visit it). Hamburger/hotdog/bar in outdoor pool area.

I dont know with other guests, but this room is a filth! The minute we walked in the room, it was damp! We need a dehumidifier! Never again.... Never. Better stay at Comfor Suites or Fulton Steamboat. Definitely not stay on ground floor facing Golden Corral!

For the price it was possibly the best value hotel in the area. The entryway is beautiful and the staff was friendly and accommodating. The room smelled clean and was visibly clean when we went in. Bed was very comfortable. Staff was everywhere cleaning various things in the morning. The free breakfast was AMAZING (I reccomend the Omelette).The grounds are... More

This hotel is what it is… a great, family oriented, basic hotel/motel. The accommodations are not fancy, not extravagant, but are clean and comfortable. Definitely upgrade the few extra bucks to stay on the courtyard side of the hotel. The other side faces the parking lot, Golden Coral, and busy street. You smell restaurant food. The courtyard side is peaceful... More

We've been staying at the Continental Inn every summer for a few years now. It's not the fanciest, newest resort in the Lancaster area, but we love the staff here that make us feel at home. The rooms were in the process of being updated a bit the last time we stayed, and the new soft goods and sink hardware... More

This was kind of getting away trip for me and a remembered time when My wife and I took our two daughters on their first overnight vacation. We stayed at this hotel in August of 1983. My daughters were only 5 and 3 years old. They were so excited. The place has changed and there are better places to stay... More

We've been going to Lancaster for annual board/wargaming convention every August for past 10 years. Stayed other places, hated every one. We really appreciate the Continental. The rooms are basic but clean, Well furnished, even two chairs, which is unheard of in newer motels! New flat panel TVs and lots of parking. I have trouble sleeping, always sleep like a... More
