My wife and I have been going to the New Continental Hotel (Inn) since 1982. It has been owned operated since the 1920's by four generations of the same family. Significant improvements have been made to the premises in the last couple of years. My only hope is that they don't overdue the improvements so that it becomes another one of the chain hotels. If you are looking for Motel 6, EconoLodge or Best Western like hotel, this is not for you. If you want a rectangular building full of cookie-cutter type rooms made of drywall with no character, the New Continental Hotel is not for you. This is a place for people who want to feel history all around them while they eat, sleep, and relax.. It's for people who want to sit in the bar and feel like Al Capone or Bonnie & Clyde could come walking through the door at anytime. Being at the water's edge, the setting is perfect for reading, relaxing, swimming, etc. The bed was very comfortable, the air conditioner was capable of making the room too cold even with the outside temperature was in the 90's. The food was scrumptious and ample. Diane and Leo couldn't be better hosts. They are always available to help you. They know all about the history, folklore, and legends about the area. If you want to experience something out of the ordinary humdrum boring hotel chains, then you should book a few nights at the New Continental Hotel. You will leave much more relaxed than when you arrived.
