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

We have made The Steamboat our "Home Away From Home" place to stay. From the exceptional front desk staff (Scott is so helpful & courteous), to Dave in the Pub, we are never disappointed with the service. Our favorite room (when it's just my husband & I) is room 141. Opposite end of pool area and quiet, but close to... More

My wife really pressed me to stay at the Steamboat. She had seen it and thought it would be fun. I thought it would probably be a gimmick and a tourist trap. I was wrong. We had one of the best hotel experiences we have had in years. The Steamboat is beautiful and classy. The gentleman that checked us in,... More

This hotel has a wonderful nautical theme. We stayed for three nights just after Christmas. We found beautiful Christmas decorations and a comfortable room. My son loved the ducks in the koi pond and the unusually great playground. We did find the internet service to be very spotty on the second floor.
