We spent one night here during the recent July 4 holiday weekend.We had a sundeck room on the 3rd floor which is an adults only floor. The staff was friendly. The room was clean and to us the bed was quite comfortable. The motel is in a great location for shopping at the outlet stores and nearby attractions and restaurants.... More

Great for kids. Good pool. Good price for package for breakfast and tickets to Dutch Wonderland. Bar closes early though, but staff VERY accomodating. Beds not so comfortable. Please book early so you can get a reservation at the hotel.

We loved this motel. Very clean, nice pool, excellent breakfast at the restaurant, and close to all the Lancaster Co attractions. We loved the fact that it reminded us of being on a ship. We also enjoyed the pond, although I it would have been more enjoyable had it not snowed at the end of March :-)

We have faithfully visited the Steamboat Inn for the past 3 years. The staff (Marcy & Arlene) have always made the environment feel warming and inviting. UNFORTUNATELY this hotel has gone down BIG time since our last visit. The room was filthy!!! There were pubic hairs in the bathtub and on the toilet. We requested housekeeping come remedy the problem... More

What a cute hotel, from the view outside to the entrance to the elevator music to the rooms and dining. Breakfast was amazingly good, French toast yum! Well worth the choice to stay. Wish we could have stayed longer

We booked this hotel on a whim. The photos and descriptions just appealed to my romantic side. All my expectations were met. If you can afford a bit of vacation luxury, this ship in the middle of a cabbage patch might be for you.

My husband and I recently took our granddaughters to Dutch Wonderland and stayed at the Fulton Steamboat Inn. At first glance the place is absolutely adorable! We were greeted very nicely at the front desk as we checked in and the girls were given adorable little paper "sailor" hats. After settling in we took them to the pirate ship playground... More

We've been a fan of this place many times for years and have gone there both with kids and alone as just husband and wife for romantic getaways. Ten years ago, the place used to be flawless. Having a bad experience there was unheard of. Now, having a bad experience is turning more and more common and I'm not sure... More
