“Great Location”
Reviewed May 12, 2010

Besides the location the hotel itself was spotless and the grounds were real nice with a duck pond and sitting area. The room was 2 queen beds and a small but modern new bath. Awesome flat screen TV, refrigerator , micro which came in handy.. With only 1 window the room was a little dark. You needed to keep your lights on. It was decorated beautifully as was the whole hotel. Home made cookie and lemonaide was put out in the lobby late afternoon. We used the hot tub and the pool. It is kept open late for the adults only. It has a tavern and a dining room We enjoyed breakfast twice in the dining room and once in the evening. It was good.

Stayed April 2010, traveled as a couple

Stayed there with my three children for the school break vacation.Enjoyed our room accomodation with bunk beds, as well as outside with ducks on a beautiful, small pond. Swimming pool could be little bit more clean, but we still enjoyed it.
Lady in the gift shop was very nice and frendly, and gifts were not expensive. Playground in the front of the hotel became very handy after dinner and before swimming time. Great location for relaxing, as well as shopping or visiting neighborhood farms.

We've stayed at the Fulton Steamboat Inn several times, and have been pleased with each visit. The staff is accomodating, and the area is convenient to Lancaster shopping, sight seeing, and stage shows - especially the American Music Theatre.

The indoor pool and whirlpool are relaxing; complete with chaise lounges and plenty of towels...it's suitable for adults and children. Looking through the glass walls, you can enjoy watching ducks and fish. There's also a convenient exercise room, washers and dryers and snack machines.

On-site Huckleberry's Tavern and full-service restaurant are sure to please. Prices are comperable for the area. There's also a gift shop full of beautiful treats.

While ALL the rooms are beautiful and comfortable, treat yourself to the Third Floor, Sun Deck for the ultimate in luxury...victorian-style furniture, whirlpool bathtub, and many other amenities.

Easy phone check-out speeds up your departure. We've stayed in other Lancaster motels, and recommend the Fulton Steamboat Inn as our favorite!

My wife and I, family and I, and friends and I have stayed in this hotel numerous time and have always found it fantastic. The hotel owners and staff are more than friendly and will go out of their way for anyone and anything. When you check in they are very courteous and always have a smile on their face. We have been their 5 times so far this year. just this past week they even sent up a bottle of champaign for our anniversary. The Lounge is a very friendly atmosphere with a great staff. The restaurant's food is very good.

The Room was very delightful, with its antique type furnishings, there was a jacuzzi tub, and a fireplace, and a slim line T.V. We also had a balcony a we enjoyed this very much.
The staff at check in were very polite, and the hotel general manager came out as we were being checked in and asked if we would like to be upgraded from a regular room to a King size bedroom, as he found out it was our anniversary. He also sent up some champagne compliments of him. The whole place was just immaculate. The grounds are very well kept up and suite the steamboat theme. They had steamboat type music on the sound system in the entrance and hallways. There was free coffee in the entrance in the morning, and free lemonade in the afternoon and you were greeted in a very friendly manner each time you entered or left the hotel.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone, and will go back if we are in the area again.
