Oh Continental Inn...from the looks of it you aren't thrilled. It is extremely dated and 70s but don't judge a book by its cover. I am sure in its hey day it was the best of the best place to stay around, has an old upscale feel in the lobby. This place however is somewhere my family and I always... More

I'm gong to post this on Facebook because I have written 2 TripAdvisor reviews that were deleted. We went to Lancaster this weekend because Grace was playing. We had reservations at Continental Inn. The Front Desk staff was beyond rude at check in. We went to check the beds and a HUGE ROACH crawled out of the pillows we moved... More

Travelling for a softball tournament, something we do fairly often, stayed in many budget to mid range hotels. Checked in, staff were a bit about, to say the least. Got to the room found this, don't really have to say anymore. We left

Upon checking in the front desk employees were rude and just continued to have a conversation to themselves. We go to out room and immediately check the beds. As we pull the pillows off the beds a huge cockroach comes out of the pillow. We move the bed and about 5-10 tiny bugs were scattering. We called the front desk... More

Reading the reviews here we were worried about the rooms being clean. They were clean and we felt comfortable. We stayed here one night with two other families, 7 kids under 5 years old and 6 adults across three rooms adjacent rooms. The setup was great for the kids - playground and a kid-friendly pool with a little 1.5 foot... More

Listen if you are a motel kind of person, it's okay. The idea is great. Outdoor pool & kiddie pool, indoor pool, jacuzzi & sauna. Playground, tether ball, volleyball nets, patio table & chairs to hang out when the kids play or after they go to sleep. First thing when I walked into the room was immediately looked for bed...

While this hotel is in need of some major updates to the rooms, it was a good place to rest your head for the night. The beds were clean. The bathrooms need some work. The best part of this hotel is the outdoor area. They have a nice pool and playground and lots of tables and chairs for hanging outside... More

While this motel has the perfect setup for families, it has been deteriorating rapidly. This is my third stay in three years. We go because of the playground, courtyard, and pool. Unfortunately, the quality of service and cleanliness of the rooms gets worse and worse each year. The women at the front desk made mistakes with my booking, and instead... More

Let me just say first, I will be going back!!! This motel is so great for families and children. They have a great outdoor pool with a kid play water area. A play-area with swings for the children and also hop-scotch. If it is a bad weather day, not to worry they have an indoor pool, whirlpool and sauna. The... More

I am a hotel snob and freely admit this. I love boutique hotels and would never have chosen to stay here until a group outing landed me at the Continental Inn, Lancaster, PA. The room was clean, the bed acceptably comfortable, the pools (indoor and outdoor) also clean. There is no elevator and our room was on the second floor.... More
