My wife and I stayed with our 2 year old who had a great time. Weather was bad so we swam in the indoor pool, watched the ducks and Koi in the pond, and lounged around the room. Added plus- if you call ahead, you can have a gold fish left in your room to accompany your kid.

Stayed here with my Mom for a Mother Daughter weekend. Neat place to stay, everything reminds you of an authentic steamboat. Rooms were nicely decorated and clean. Felt the room was a little small but not bad. Indoor pool area was really nice and the hot tub was perfect way to end the day. Duck pond was very relaxing place... More

Exceptionally well-kept hotel with very friendly staff. Our kids loved the play ground and duck pond. We had a minor plumbing issue during our stay and they responded within minutes with excellent service. Great value, unique and really fun! We liked the breakfast at Huckleberry's too!

Really enjoyed our stay here. Scott on Reception was incredibly helpful and guided us on where to see some authentic Amish communities. In a drive of 40 minutes, we saw several buggies and were able to see many farms and beautiful deserted roads. The bar staff were very upbeat and polite and the food in the restaurant was delicious.

Very nice place to stay. Clean. Very beautiful inside and out. Beautiful Koi fish ponds and the pool and hot tub were very relaxing and very pretty. When visiting Lancaster I highly recommend this hotel!

Tonight is our last night at the Fulton and I am verklempt! We have had a fabulous vacation with outstanding service. We stayed on the sun deck which is an adults only floor, no kids running up and down the hallways has been terrific. Don't get me wrong this place is very family friendly but also keeps the adult traveler... More

Excellent hotel. We stayed on the "sun deck"- the adults only floor. It was quiet and we enjoyed using the fireplace. The lobby and hallways had a nice cruise ship feel. The adult swim in the pool was nice. Breakfast in the restaurant was good and had quick service. I'd definitely stay here again.

My husband And I recently stayed at Fulton Steamboat Inn and we were delighted. The care and concern of the staff was up to standards know to any "Disney Addict" The hotel was a step back in time to a more elegant period. We have and will continue to recommend Fulton to our family and friends. And to all you... More

This was out first time in this area and based on the reviews we booked a room at the Fluton for one night only. We were attending show at the Sight and Sound Theater witch is very close by. Yeh, the hotel is a bit cheesey but the people working there make all the difference. Check-in was fast and easy.... More

My wife and I moved away from the area, having never stayed at this hotel while living here. We recently returned to Lancaster for a visit, and decided to do an overnight at the Fulton. Unfortunately, after the experience we had, we will never be staying there again in the future, nor can we recommend it to anyone else. Our... More
