This was my second stay at the Fulton Steamboat Inn. I booked this hotel as part of a package from sight and sound theater. The hotel was just the road from the theater and also across the street from some outlet stores. Many attractions like buggy rides and Amish tours are very close by. We were with a group of... More

Excellent, clean, updated facility. Staff is very friendly & accommodating. Gift shop closes early & not open on Sundays but that's a minor thing. We had a group of 35 including children. All were pleased. The bunk bed rooms sleep 5 which is great. Hard to find rooms with enough beds. This is our 4th year staying here. Same great... More

We chose this hotel because of the unique theme and we were not disappointed. The cruise ship theme was carried out beautifully. Our room was beautiful and very clean. The staff was always available and accommodating. We were there in early December, so the pool and hot tub were not crowded. We were pleased with the Family Breakfast in the... More

The Fulton Steamboat Inn is decorated like the fancy steamboats of long ago along with music throughout the halls from the same time period. The rooms are nicer than rooms I've stayed in at major hotels. This hotel has all the amenities the other reviews have mentioned, along with wi-fi in every room at no additional charge.

Each morning there is coffee in the lobby - free - and afternoon treats include fresh baked cookies and lemonade. Great location......close to shopping and... More

Clean, happy staff & a comfortable room. Festive atmosphere! The on site pub and restaurant are very nice. The property has a fire pit and rockers, and a play ground for the kiddos. We've been back twice. Can't wait to return.
