There are two related reasons to stay at the Continental Inn: (1) you are going to Dutch Wonderland, and this hotel is right next to the theme park so you can walk there easily without having to cross a street; and (2) because you are going to Dutch Wonderland, you have small kids, and the pools, playground, big lawn, game room etc. are great distractions when you can't be at the park. The breakfast buffet also is nice (not fancy, but certainly serviceable) and free for the first two persons per room. The rooms, however, are dated (like the rest of the property) and mediocre at best. They are on par with what you'd expect at a $40-50/night motel, although with a better TV. The first night we stayed there was very humid, and the room was almost dank despite the AC on high. Fortunately, it dried out the next day, so the room was better, but that didn't change the very soft beds and somewhat depressing overall condition of the room. (It wasn't dirty, but it was certainly well worn.) All that said, I rate the hotel 4 out of 5 because it was so convenient, and it offered a very easy and stress-free way to spend the day with the kids without having to start the car once. Nevertheless, if I had to come to this area again, I'd look for a property with similar amenities, but in better shape, even if I had to drive to Dutch Wonderland (the parking there is free...).
