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

The Continental Inn is an average motel with a couple of meeting rooms. Rooms need a remodel and far better air conditioning--if you're in the unit's draft you freeze, otherwise it scarcely cools the air. The heavily chlorinated pools (one indoors, one out) are filled with lots of children, as they flock in the summer to the kiddie park next... More

I love this hotel. They are always so welcoming and pleasant. The rooms are always clean, and there is enough space for a family of three or four. The suites are very nice too. I have no complaints about the room. I think that the courtyard is the best part. There is an indoor pool, outdoor pool, and a hot... More

This is our 2nd time staying here at this hotel. Staff was very nice, really everyone was very nice! We stayed in room 117, which is I think the best room for toddlers, kids, party people. You walk out from your room, your 10 steps to the tiki bar playground and outdoor pool, that also has a little pool with... More

This was the 3rd time we'd stayed at the Continental and every time has been great. The playground, pools and the courtyard and fabulous. We can put our kids to bed and sit right outside the room at one of the tables and unwind from a busy day. It's just a 40 minute drive to Hershey Park and right next... More

We loved this place, and plan on returning. If you are looking for a hotel, we stayed here in May for two nights, and ended up,staying an extra night. The grounds were wonderful, with patio sets on the well maintained large courtyard area, place offers swiming pool, badmitten courts, volleyball, playground for kids and a concession which you can get...
