Verified Reviews of Continental Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"It was a fantastic experience for my group of 47."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We had a great experience in a beautiful hotel with a very helpful staff. Each one including the bell boys, were extremely helpful to us. We all enjoyed breakfast every morning. Everyone knew my name from the day I arrived. Ruth went out of her way to help me in every aspect. I will definitely recommend Continental Hotel to everyone. I also enjoyed the Casino, even though I lost.
