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...

Yes, the Continental Inn is very dated. While housekeeping could have done a much better job...the bathroom floor was full of someone else' s hair (YUK)!. 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.

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...

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...
