This was our first stay at the Fulton Steamboat Inn. What a delightful overnight we had! Stepping into the lobby you are immediately on board a steam boat. The decor is great. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The weather that evening was gorgeous so we took advantage of sitting on the Adirondack chairs located around the pond on... More

We stayed at Fulton Steamboat in July and this hotel is fabulous. It was very neat and clean and very close to the Sight and Sound Theater where we saw the Moses show. We also ate in the dining room, the food was great and also the family style breakfast was excellent. We are going back in November.

This is our 5th time at the Fulton Steamboat Inn, and it just keeps getting better. Everything is super clean, new bedding (down comforter, not that ugly bedspread at other hotels). Everyone is super nice and friendly. My kids (8 and 10) enjoyed the playground, pool and cookies. If you are not sure where to stay in Lancaster, stay here,... More

We never realized what a wonder hotel the Steamboat was. The staff is so friendly and helpful. Our room was very comfy and clean. The restaurant and bar were both wonderful.My husband & I had one of the best steak and crab cake dinners.

We went there this weekend to stay for a night and go over to the American Music Theatre. We got a 15% discount to eat in their restaurant when we purchased tickets for the theatre. Well, now I know why the discount. The food was not good. Stuffed Flounder was terrible, mashed potatoes passable and the beans were just not... More

This is a great place...it has the feel of Lancaster while not being far from the outlets and Dutch Wonderland. It also has an amazing playground, area to walk/feed ducks, beautiful grounds, gorgeous indoor pool. We have stayed here 4-5 times and each time we go, we are really happy. They have some things that typical hotels do not...microwave, DVDs... More
