This is our 3rd or 4th trek out to Dutch Wonderland (which is celebrating its 50th anniversary, by the way), and we had spent most of the trips in higher-priced swanky hotels which weren't so close to our destination. We had passed the Fulton Steamboat Inn each trip and it always looked very cute - almost festive. This year, based on other trip advisor reviews, we went with the Fulton. It had a pool for the kids, and a great playground for the kids (with a see-saw & everything) and ducks (with gumball machines that dispense duck food pellets and corn for a quarter). Sounds like kid Heaven (or Hell), doesn't it? But it's not. There's a gazebo for adults to relax in which also offers a fire pit near a quiet pond (same ducks), as well as adult swim hours since the wee tots should be long in bed. The hotel's restaurant boasts fare that is comparable to other restaurants in the area and better quality than I was anticipating, quite frankly. We had Tara wait on us 2 days in a row and she rocked - ask for her if you end up at the Huckleberry Restaurant. This place is a great value for families, couples and the older set (the music that gently plays inside and out of the hotel hearkens back from the gay 90's to the roaring 20's). Looking forward to another trip back.
