We have stayed here before and for the price of this place you'd expect excellent top service in every area. It was not that way when we went to the tavern to grab a late snack and drink. First off the sign says tavern closes at 10:00 pm to which we did not know that the kitchen closes at 9:00... More

The staff were all very very nice. Super nice. The room decor is very cool as are the grounds, with a nice playground, fish pond and places to sit. The mattress stunk! My back aches from the lack of support that the bed offered. The restaurant offered dishes that dated back to the era, with no plain grilled chicken. All... More

This hotel was perfect for our 2 night stay in Lancaster to visit Dutch Wonderland with our 5 year old. Although the hotel was very theme-y (it really looked liked a steamboat on the river, with anchor doorknockers, sailors caps for the kids, etc), it was clean and comfortable. After reading other reviews, I asked for a room on the... More

Beautiful hotel, with great accommodations. I booked a room on the third floor for my wife and myself. We were both looking forward to using the hot tub after 10:00 pm for adults only swim. We drove 4 1/2 hours due to traffic and after dinner (Shady Maple) we changed and went immediately to the pool. A sign over the... More

We stayed here on a family vacation and it worked very well for a family with kids. It's right off the highway, with strip malls on one side, but there's farmland on the other, and a very pretty, very well-groomed carp pond (complete with piped-in music) right outside. If you squint, you can pretend you're in the country. The whole... More

My family and I come here every year and we love it. I can't say anything bad about this place. I don't understand why people make a comment about stupid things like forgetting toilet paper. If I see that I needed I just simply asked. That's all you have to do. As soon as I return from my trip there... More

My husband and I took a mini vacation to celebrate our Anniversary and stayed at the Fulton Steamboat Inn in Lancaster, PA. Stepping into the Inn, on our arrival, was like stepping onto an elegant steamboat. The decor was quite lovely and for the most part well maintained. The amenities like coffee in the morning nd lemonade in the afternoon... More
