Our 4th visit. Best hotel. Have never had one thing to complain about! They run a "tight ship!" Well worth the cost! 5 Stars!!!!! Rooms are immaculate and well-appointed. Even the windows are clean inside and out! Curious and serious staff.

The room was lovely and well appointed. The decor and music in the hallways and lobby was delightful! Nice pool area and hot tub...liked the idea that children under 16 were not in hot tub. Our room came with a tasty and more than filling breakfast. We will come back here!

For a second year in a row, my family and I stayed at the Fulton Steamboat Inn in Lancaster, PA. Along for the trip, besides myself, were my husband and two daughters ages 5 and 2 1/2. The Inn is small in comparison to most hotels but that is what makes it special. If you are looking for room service... More

Simply the best Hotel in Lancaster County! We stayed here awhile back and decided to visit again. It's so great to see familiar faces, all the staff smiles and says hello, which is something you don't see very often anymore. The third floor rooms are beautiful and the fire pit at night is a great touch. I don't think it... More

This was our first stay at the Fulton Steamboat Inn. What a delightful overnight we had! Stepping into the lobby you are immediately on board a steam boat. The decor is great. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The weather that evening was gorgeous so we took advantage of sitting on the Adirondack chairs located around the pond on... More

We stayed at Fulton Steamboat in July and this hotel is fabulous. It was very neat and clean and very close to the Sight and Sound Theater where we saw the Moses show. We also ate in the dining room, the food was great and also the family style breakfast was excellent. We are going back in November.

This is our 5th time at the Fulton Steamboat Inn, and it just keeps getting better. Everything is super clean, new bedding (down comforter, not that ugly bedspread at other hotels). Everyone is super nice and friendly. My kids (8 and 10) enjoyed the playground, pool and cookies. If you are not sure where to stay in Lancaster, stay here,... More

The restaurant is excellent! Large, delicious breakfasts. Dinner and lunch are very good, too. Kids love the playground with pirate ship and feeding the ducks in... More
