Yup resembles a paddleboat/steamboat. But it is a very cool place to visit and stay. The inside is very quaint and ship like with furnishings. We stayed on the 3rd floor and it was quiet. Nice shower! They have an in house restaurant which we had breakfast the following morning. It was okay, the server, she did not seem to... More

This is a beautiful place and as so the employees in every area of this steamboat should reflect the same thing excellence. In service and attitude. For the price of this place, really the employees need to have the very best attitude. This has been the second time that we experienced the same lousy grumpy old guy bar waiter. That... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights while attending a wedding locally. The feeling in this hotel was extremely nice and old fashioned - kind of like my grandma's home. We had a 3rd floor room so that we would have a balcony to sit on. We really enjoyed having made that decision.The room was very comfortable, although we... More

It is quiet & just an awesome experience! Anybody who has complaints about this hotel are being too picky! If you want to... More

We stayed here because it was so highly praised on TA and we were very pleased. We booked a room on the Sun Deck which is adults only. The room was beautiful though the deck was very tiny and there was no way to get onto the real deck expect to climb over the rail... but it was worth it... More

Staff is always friendly and willing to help make our stay a pleasant one. A very special shout out to *Dave and Steve who run the bar... More

We took our 2 young boys to Dutch Wonderland the first week of July 2014. We made our reservation in advance based on the theme & were not disappointed! I took extra time to appreciate the days of yore interior décor and detail. Boys loved the pool (small) and pirate playground. We stayed a 3rd night & moved to a... More

I love going to the Fulton Steamboat Inn. My 5 year old still thinks its a boat and we've been here three times. They have a cool pirate playground that my son loves. There is also a pond outside with ducks and fish. The front desk will give you duck and fish food. My son loves feeding the ducks and... More
