The theme of the old-time steamboat is carried throughout the inn. The music is even of the era. Rooms are large and comfortable. When we checked in, we were told that our room faced the meadow. When I opened the curtains, I saw that we faced the parking lot with an obstructed view of a working farm. At least we... More

This hotel was unique, charming and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was adorned in Victorian décor, king size 4 post bed, fireplace and a/c worked wonderfully. Outdoors was a very nice feeding pond with ducks and koi (fish). There was a very nice playground for kids complete with a wooden train to play on. A fire-pit... More

The room was a little pricey, but was actually a sitting room and a bedroom. There was a microwave and refrigerator, and there was a television in each room. The building has wood trim throughout, beautiful; and the lighting was also unique, lamps that you wouldn't normally find. I would have preferred lighting to be a little brighter near the... More

We stayed here for three nights. The hotel is unique and clean. This place was very family friendly. My sons were very excited to buy food to feed the ducks each day. The huge playground was also a hit for after car rides and getting the wiggles out. The staff were friendly as well. The restaurant left some things to... More

Had a great visit for one night. Wish we had scheduled two nights! Room was well air conditioned and very clean. We were enjoying the pond so much that we picked up dinner to go and ate it relaxing by the pond. Fed the ducks at the pond; they will come right up to you if you feed them; especially... More

I was dubious when my travel companion, who is the navigator, had me turn into the drive of the Fulton Steamboat Inn and said, "We're here!" I looked up at the inn and said, "You're kidding me." I was sure that this was going to be a colossal mistake! It turned out to be one of the nicest rooms we... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights while visiting Amish country and Dutch wonderland with our two small children. The hotel was very well taken care of and the location was excellent. Our only real complaints were in regards to the hotel restaurant. Though the food was excellent, the service was extremely slow and disorganized. My husband being... More

We had stayed here over 20 years ago and decided to return for a few nights while celebrating our wedding anniversary. We were fortunate to have booked a room on the third floor, which is limited to ages 16 and up. The hotel was packed with families with young (and poorly behaved) children, so the third floor was like an... More

We thought outside the boxed and booked a non-chain hotel for our one-night stay. I'm so glad that we did. The hotel is clean and in my son's words "fancy". It has lots of period steamboat decor. The rooms are well-appointed. The pool was small, but nice in a lovely atrium. It was close to everything (only about 1 mile... More
