Well, let's be positive.
• The staff is very nice.
• The view of the lake is nice and they have lakeside dining. If you want to eat vegan, you will be eating salads, though.
• There is a bar downstairs.
• The morning coffee is good.
The New Continental Inn is a historic property right on Greenwood Lake. I was told that the property dates back to the 1920s, and Babe Ruth and some other notables stayed here.
The rooms are a little primitive. My room was small with old carpet, and paper thin walls.
Unfortunately, I didn't get much sleep due to noise from the room next door. I could hear people talking late at night (until 2:30AM actually) and they were not being loud; they were talking in normal conversational tones and watching TV. I turned on the room air conditioner to the fan only setting, and that solved the issue.
The plumbing is loud if someone takes a bath, or flushes a toilet.
I think they have better rooms than the one I stayed in, but this room was a disappointment. However, I didn't pay $500 a night for a lakefront stay in the middle of the summer, either (but only about one fifth of that, in fact).
If you are a perfectionist expecting luxury accommodations, and have the money to stay at a luxury venue, then you will be happier elsewhere.
I believe you can have a nice stay here, if you come with the right attitude and are able to not obsess about imperfections and inconveniences.
