“The perfect family hotel for traveling with young kids.”
Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

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.

This was our 2nd trip here. This time we stayed on the no kids 3rd floor with a deck. Room was huge and spotless. Loved the deck...watched the cows and horses and farm traffic. Had some questions and Crystal at the front desk was able to help . :) Enjoyed the ducks and the pond.

Room Tip: Third floor is super quiet

Its located across the street from the Outlets and also a fantastic miniature golf course. We visited this hotel in May when everything was in full bloom and it was breath taking. After dark we sat at a fire pit they have and enjoyed the beauty of their landscaping. The hotel is just like staying inside a Steamboat. Great pool and hot tub area. We've visited it twice and we only plan on staying their every visit..

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor and loved it but if you stay on the third floor your room will have ac...

Recently stayed at the Fulton Steamboat Inn for 5 days. Huckleberry's restaurant on site is very convenient and an excellent quality. We have to express how awesome Ashley was on her service while we were there.

Room Tip: Third floor is great if your traveling without children. Great views from balcony!

a great place to stay was at the Fulton Steamboat Inn. They had ducks and koi to feed and they had the best warm chocolate chip cookies in the lobby with fresh lemonaid. The rooms were nice and clean and the pool area was cool with the hot tub. The huckelberry had good food and the price was great and with the captains club it was even less money!. Kurstin the hostess at Huckelberry's was great she was all over working her friendly stuff.
