“Great Place for a Getaway!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

My wife and I stayed here recently just for a getaway and to do a little Christmas Shopping. The hotel was wonderful! It was our first time staying at the Steamboat and we found it to be a very enjoyable experience. The rates were reasonable and the accommodations were excellent. The hotel is decorated in a Victorian theme with period style furniture, copper ceilings and crystal chandeliers. It was decorated for the Christmas Holidays and the place was beautiful. While family oriented, we did not find it to be noisy. The pool and whirlpool area are well maintained and would be a great place to relax after walking your feet off at the nearby outlets. Definitely a place we would return to! It is centrally located with easy access to nearby attractions as well as those off the beaten path!

Walk in, had King availableat very reasonable rate. 1st fllor accomodations made it easy access to the whirlpool and pool, which was clean and relaxing pitstop after 10:00 pm, when it is requested to be adults only. Good location, cental to most attrractions and outlets. Clean and comfortable room. Only disappointment was breakfast; there wasnt much of a selection, and my choice of cinammon french toast was disappointing. I ate elsewhere the second day, but I would not let the restaurant breakfast prevent me from booking again in the future.

Hi if you want a great place to stay with your family which is close and convenient this is the place to stay. This is our third stay this year. We were going to the Christmas Show at the American Music Theater down the street. We had a very nice room on the first floor. That was nice because we used the pool and whirlpool Sunday and Monday during our visit. The child that was with us enjoyed feeding the ducks and shopping in the gift shop. The very nice lady in the gift shop made our little girls day by treating her so well and assisting her while she bought her own gifts. She was very patient with her. Also the night clerk opened the shop after hours Sunday to purchase a snack for her. This is our favorite place to stay

Stayed here three days for a girls get away.,had a wonderful time. The rooms and Beds were very comfortable and clean the staff were very nice and helpful. Food in the restaurant was very good. Really enjoyed the pool and hot tub area and the adult swim time (when we could stay up till 10:00pm ;o) ) Enjoyed the cookies they put out in the lobby area with nice cold lemon water. They really have thought of every thing to make your stay enjoyable. Will be back for sure.

It was our first time staying at The Fulton Steamboat Inn and we are glad that we did! Everything was fantastic. The decor fits the hotel, the staff was friendly and helpful and the outside grounds are very well kept. I recommend staying on the third floor, the room was very spacious and nice.

This is our 8th year staying at the steamboat, and we abolutely love it. We come every October to celebrate our anniversary and its the perfect place to stay. The staff is great,and the rooms are very big, and spotless.We stayed on the sundeck floor, its only for adults, which is nice for couples,and our room was decorated beautiful. We enjoy going to the bar for drinks,and ordering the yummy cheese steaks, like made in philadelphia and the yummy hot wings. The bartenders are wonderful, real friendly. Also we enjoy walking around the grounds, and looking at the beautiful well kept landscaping. Feeding the ducks is also fun.The shopping is right across the street.So we can't wait till next october to go to our little get-a-way, to celebrate our anniversary, at our favorite place.

Room Tip: 3rd floor is for adults, first floor has the pool.victorian rooms are beautiful 3rd floor are big su...
