We stay at this hotel twice per year when visiting Lancaster Pa. Great rooms and very clean. We stay on the 3rd floor which is 16 years old and over only. Great restaurant. Room and bathroom sizes are great. Wonderful walking path around the pond and newly added firepit area which is great in the fall. We love it there.

The place is fabulous and well priced. 40 of us stayed this past weekend and they had no problems accomdating such a large group whether it was check in, the bar, the restaurant or the pool. Clean, Friendly and Convenient to loads of attractions in Lancaster. Also, kids can get a "pet" goldfish for the night from the gift shop.... More

The front desk staff is great. Was dealing with Crystal on setting up Son and Daughter for a family get together in December 2015. It was nice talking with a crew member who understands the needs of families. Even though this stay is in the future, it will be nice for my wife and myself to see both families together... More

This was our second stay at the Fulton Steamboat Inn and we had a wonderful experience on both occasions. The first time we stayed during the summer of 2014 we reserved a room on their 3rd "adults only" floor. The room was beautiful and “in character”. It was furnished with an electric fire place and an elegant four post bed.... More

We are a hockey family. Two boys that play on two different ages teams. One had to be in Philadelphia at 6:15am and the other in Hershey for an 8:30 game. We had tickets to a show at the American Music Theatre for the night before the games and we live about an hour from the theatre. It made more... More

We stayed on the 3rd floor and the heater was blowing out black stuff. We reported it to the front desk they said maintenance would take care of it while we were out for the day. We came back @6pm and found that the problem still existed and called the front desk again. They sent up the maintenance guy who... More

Needed a place to stay for an overnight trip to Lancaster. Have seen this place many times but thought it was a usual roadside hotel not comparable to the name brands. Boy was I wrong. Stayed in a non smoking queen which included a full breakfast for 2 in the adjacent restaurant for about $100 including taxes. Plus they let... More

We have been trying to get a reservation at this hotel for quite some time but it was always booked. I tried in early November and secured a reservation for New Year's Eve through the 3rd of January. Upon arrival, we were pleasantly greeted by the staff and told that we will be in the Captain's Suite. Upon entering our... More

We live in Lancaster and just wanted to try the Steamboat for New Year's Eve. It was far beyond what I expected. Our hostess at Huckleberry's, Marie, was friendly and engaging. I work in the tourism industry in Lancaster, so we had a lot to talk about. We had an amazing meal- the salmon and the bourbon Delmonico steak- were... More

We stayed here on a weekend staycation, and were very pleasantly surprised. The rooms are nice size. We had a king size bed in ours since it was just the two of us. Nice decor throughout the hotel, and rooms. The restaurant, Huckleberry ' s, was great as well. The staff were very helpful and polite. The food was great,... More
