“great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Location is great.. Walking distance to Dutch Wonderland and lots of farms. Hotel was old but ok... The room wasn't great.. but your there to sleep so who cares... clean, but stuffy.... carpet is old.. they need to renew.... they have an outdoor and indoor pool... a play area for the kids.. and parents can relax. Breakfast was good.. 2 adults free.. kids have to pay a meal... meanwhile kids never eat... dumb... should be free for kids..

Room Tip: I thought the pool side would be less noise.. but not good... quieter where the parking lot was.

This was the worst hotel that I have ever stayed at. The staff was rude, the rooms were disgusting, and there was some kind of blood or other bodily fluid on our pillows. All of our pillows had some kind of stains on them. However one had red/orange spots all over them. When I told the staff they did not offer to switch rooms or get us new hello. We had to go out and buy our own pillows and pillowcases just so we could sleep with pillows in the bed. The carpets were stained and disgusting. The bathroom and vanity had cracks all over it. When looking online they are tricky, they only have pictures posted of the attractions in the area and none of the nasty rooms. Do not stay here ever. This is not a place for children or seniors. I am sure that there are some kind of germs in each room.

The continental in has been the only place we stay.We have tried the rest and they are the best.
Staff was wonderful, Rooms were comfortable and clean the grounds are beautiful. Breakfast was good and Free for two people. The Continental is right in the middle of everything just a short walk to Dutch Wonderland.We started going when my daughter was a little girl and now all my family go at least once a year.

Room Tip: Stay country side close to pools and play ground,

I was part of a 50-person bus group so figured the accommodations would be sub-par.
Boy was I surprised! We were efficiently checked in. My room had a coffeemaker
(brought my own), refrigerator, sink outside the bathroom which contained a tub....joy
I can soak after touring! Brand new TV - outside was a wrought-iron bench, tables w/
umbrellas to sit around. Property has a beautiful pool, tennis courts, manicured grounds.

Heading into the INCLUDED breakfast the next a.m.; stopping in the lobby to check
my e-mail (free). Breakfast was 2 pancakes, sausage, 2 bacon rashers with family style
passed bowls of scrambled eggs, toast and home fries. OJ and coffee or tea.

And the staff was very pleasant helping those by assisting w/wheelchairs, etc.

Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

It is an average old hotel, walking distance to Dutch Wonderland, many restaurants around, the outlet mall is cross street. Room is clean, water press is good, no microwave, but it does has a refrigerator. Bedding sheets are clean, mattress seems old, I have three rooms with 6 double beds, and two of them are uncomfortable. The hotel has a big backyard with indoor/outdoor pool, children playground, outdoor picnic tables and chair. The room floor is not clean as it looks like; my son got very dirty hands after he crawled on the floor for one minute, his both palms were black.

The hotel room was clean but could use some updating. The breakfast was delicious! We loved the omellete bar! Just would have preferred if everyone in your room was entitled to the free breakfast. It only is for 2 and you must pay for additional. But still can't beat the price for it.
