Staff is great, so friendly and attentive. Very clean, so relaxing and convenient to everything. Great restaurant and bar. Rooms are amazing, great prices and 3rd floor is wonderful for adults only. Will return again and again!

We decided to take a trip to Lancaster recently to visit a restaurant we had heard good things about. It's a little far so we decided to stay over....I knew right away I would be staying at the steamboat. My family and I use to stay there years ago, I haven't been in a long time and wanted to share... More

We stayed here over 10 years ago and the lobby and rooms were amazing. However, if you're a family on a budget, this isn't the hotel for you. They don't even offer a continental breakfast which is a must when traveling on a budget. Would stay here again if a breakfast was included with your stay free of charge.

We have stayed at the Fulton Steamboat several times and like the face that they have a bar where you can have a cocktail before going to bed. The rooms are very nice and comfortable. I always liked staying on the third floor and they have a nice sitting area at the end of the ship for families to hang... More

My two sons and I stayed here one night during our vacation in Amish Country. We loved this hotel and wished he could have stayed here more than one night. The theming is fabulous without being cheesy. Loved the turn of the century piano tunes playing in the hallways. Room was clean and beds were comfortable. Playground is fabulous for... More

We have stayed at many places in Lancaster and have to say this is the best. We love coming here and will come back two more times later this year. You feel at home here and it is right in the middle of all the action in Amish Country. They give out free lemonade, coffee, and cookies in the daytime... More

A neon steamboat in the middle of motel row. Low ceilings and tacky gold-painted Victorian furniture. Whole place has that old, squishy carpet you have to wonder about. Little pool was ok for the kids, until someone looking like a homeless guy got in the pool with cut-off jeans. Rooms comfortable enough and price very reasonable.

Stayed here during the U. S. Women's open weekend. The Steamboat was an excellent value and the theme was fun. The room was clean and well appointed. This hotel would be an excellent selection for families. I would bring mine as the theme is perfect for both children and adults.
