The staff is excellent.....cookies and lemonade in the lobby on arrival....hot coffee in the morning..all free. The rooms are clean and comfortable with a fridge, microwave, and small coffee pot. The grounds are well maintained and pretty. There is a playground for the kids and a large duck pond....and you can feed the ducks. Breakfast at the restaurant is good,... More

Unfortunately only saw him on check in but he was fabulous. Restaurant was very good and well priced. Nice indoor pool and spa. I wish it was nicer weather and we could... More

Love the Fulton Steamboat Inn. Rooms are very clean..staff is great. Scott helped us at the front desk. He was very accommodating and pleasant. This was my 2nd visit here. Both times stayed two nights. Fulton is very close to the outlets. There is a great restaurant at the Fulton too. THere is an indoor heated pool and jacuzzi. Overall,... More

What a wonderful 2 day getaway we had at this hotel. We have been traveling to this area for the last 25 years and we will never stay anywhere else again. We stayed on the third floor for 16 and up only and it was awesome. What beautiful amenities this hotel boasts. While the room was just like being in... More

I NEVER write reviews but I am writing this to hopefully help someone make up their mind about which hotel to book. My Husband and I decided to travel to Lancaster to get away for a couple of days. We both wanted to visit Sight & Sound as well as do little retail therapy at the outlets. We wanted a... More

My husband and I decided to get away for a few days, and being somewhat familiar with the area, we were always intrigued by the Fulton Steamboat Inn so we decided to stay here. What a fabulous experience. We stayed on the third floor, and the room was huge. The fireplace really added a nice touch. The hotel is in... More

To ride by a hotel on rt. 30 in Lancaster Pa., one gets the idea of a gimmick style of a hotel BUT it could be nowhere near the truth of the matter. This hotel is a warm, cozy version of your home. The rooms are spacious and very well decorated. It has all the amenities of a big named... More

This hotel is not bad but certainly not worthy of all the high ratings. We added an extra night to our trip to Lancaster and were not able to stay at the Best Western Eden for the additional night. We switched to the Steamboat and it was a major culture shock. This place is not bad if you're into cheap... More

This summer we took our grand children (ages 5 & 7) to Lancaster for an overnight and stayed at the Fulton Steamboat Inn on Rt 30 and 896. What a great experience!! The hotel is gorgeous and the staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Outside the hotel is a pirate playground that the kids really enjoyed. The grounds were beautifully... More
