This is the 2nd time we have stayed at this hotel and will again. the hotel/rooms is average, could use some updating and new pillows. The free breakfast with numerous choices is very good and staff very accommodating.

Across from Dutch Wonderland Important tip check hours Easy access right off of RT 30 within three miles of GREAT amish and chain restaurants including Golden Corral in walking Distance. .

Every year my BFF & I head to PA to do our Christmas shopping. We stumbled upon the Continental Inn, have been back 2 years in a row. The staff is very helpful and nice. The hotel reminds us of the 70's we coined it our Brady Bunch Hotel. The restaurant is dated as well but breakfast was very good...

There was water left in the ice bucket from the previous person as well. However, the staff, bed itself, and restaurant were great. Our request for a second floor room was immediately accommodated with...

Property needs some TLC. Staff seemed very overwhelmed and unhappy. Breakfast could be a lot better with just a tiny bit more effort as it was on the cold side and the staff were not very attentive or friendly.

Clean room. Good value. Staff seemed overwhelmed from check in to the restaurant. Breakfast wasn't great....greeter was unfriendly and servers inattentive....food just ok. . Property needs some cosmetic maintenance I took another travellers advice and asked for a courtyard room ....glad I did as road noise is loud.

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...

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...
