“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

This is my 3rd time staying at the continental inn . I live the grounds and location is great . Rooms could use some updating . The front desk staff was horrible . I had questions for front desk 3 times everything they were rude so I can't even say it was one person. How hard could it be to be friendly and answer a simple question??

I have been going to The Continental Inn since I was a child. I loved it and now my children love it. The grounds are beautiful, spacious and well kept. Indoor and outdoor pools, jacuzzi, sauna, shuffle board, ping pong and arcade give them plenty to do. The breakfast is great, especially on buffet days. The location could not be better - right next to Dutch Wonderland. It is located on the main road but it is very quiet in back. The country view rooms are definitely worth the extra money. The rooms are older but clean with fridge. No matter what other vacations we go on, we always fit in a trip to the Continental Inn every year. We would not even think of staying anywhere else.

Room Tip: Country view room is worth the extra money.

My husband and I have stayed in many different hotels and locals in the many trips we make to Amish Country in PA. The Continental Hotel, on Route 30, next door to Dutch Wonderland, was a wonderful experience. The room was clean and had a fridge. There was a pool on site, indoor, and another outdoor one, but we were there in April. There is a sauna room and perhaps best of all a full breakfast included in the price. You ordered off a menu and choices included eggs and bacon or sausage, pancakes, french toast and other items. The ladies in the restaurant were completely helpful and gracious. The room itself was clean and neat. We will definitely stay there again.

Picking up cars at Manheim Auto Auction. Plenty of parking space for truck and trailer (F350 Dually and 36' gooseneck). Excellent price, good clean room, friendly staff. Lots of amenities that I did not use.Close to several good restaurants. Will stay here again when in area.

If you are Lancaster this a very central hotel. Very nice pool area and game room. The rooms are average and not the cleanest I've stayed at. They do offer breakfast included with the price. Eggs, waffles or French Toast. You are 10 minutes from sight and sound theater, bird in hand and intercourse pa.

Do not bother. Terrible staff, bad food. Unclean rooms. Maids even hate the manager.
Woman in charge of restaurant thinks she is doing u a favor working there. The only thing that is good is the location.
In the service there were better accommodations in Iraq then this hotel. I am amazed this place passes the health code inspections. Also that it remains in business is quite shocking.
