The decor resembles an old steamboat. Therefore, there is nothing modern about this hotel which is fine, depending on what you are looking for. The inn is clean. We traveled with my dad who uses a walker. The layout was not easy to maneuver. There are a lot of options for children: playground and pool.

I cannot say enough about this hotel. We stayed for two nights. Hotel is a replica of steamboat. Very clean and comfortable. The decor is Victorian and one feels like they are back in time on one of Mr Fulton steamboats. The pool area was a hit with the kids as well as the well manicured playground. Hotel is on... More

The location of this hotel is perfect. It puts you right in the middle of anything you may need. Five minutes one way you are in Amish Villages and 5 minutes the other way is a large Target. When we arrived we were on line for check in and it moved very quickly. The fresh lemonade in the lobby was... More

Fabulous from start to finish, worth every penny!! Lemonade and warm cookies every afternoon and relaxing evenings by the fire pit and koi pond. The room was immaculate and the bunk beds and trundle were a huge hit with my 3 kids. I was so happy to be able to fit my family of 5 in one room!! We were... More

My second stay at this motel and I was not disappointed .....the staff is awesome. They are friendly and knowledgeable and lots of fun. Rooms were, once again, meticulously clean and very comfortable. The spa and pool were a welcome treat especially after 10 pm when it was adult only time. I love this place and would highly recommend the... More

Cool hotel! Felt like we were on a steamboat. Moat surrounding hotel makes you feel like you're on the water. My kids (5 & 11) had a blast on the playground (pirate ships, trains..) then spent the rest of their evening in the pool. Breakfast was fabulous, did the family style and the waitress kept bringing out more! Interior reminded... More

Although we had a pleasant stay, we would not come back. The hotel is nice, but pricey for what it offers. There is one way in, and that is past the lobby, to one elevator...a slow elevator. There are other exits, but the doors are locked from the outside. Thin walls...we heard doors closing and children in the hallways, as... More

Hotel is very nice and comfortable with a luxury atmosphere. It was a fun experience to stay in a unique "riverboat" hotel. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. We asked to have items stored in a freezer overnight which they were happy to do for us and a staff member delivered the items to our room in the morning before... More

The hotel was one of the neatest nicest places I've ever stayed in. The inside and outside made you feel like you were on an actual steamboat. A guest told us the 3rd floor where we were staying was an "adult only" floor and we really liked that! Because we were there in the summer there were many families and... More
