Very unique hotel with beautiful Victorian furnishings. Location is excellent. Practically next door to Lenox and the American Music Theater. Our room was on the sun deck and had a little balcony. It was our 43rd wedding anniversary and we wanted something special, which this definitely was. It was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Would stay there again.

We totally enjoyed our stay. Room was very clean! We ate in the restaurant and enjoyed a drink at the bar. Loved everything about our stay! Going back in a couple of weeks to finish Christmas shopping and already booked our room.

We stayed two nights at this hotel when we were in Lancaster going to Dutch Wonderland. This was a beautiful and immaculate hotel. Our four year old daughter loved all the activities that were on the property. We enjoyed the ducks, playground, fire pit, walking paths and pool. Also, the restaurant was delicious and the staff was exceptional. We will... More

My first reaction going inside was WOW! Really different! Victorian decor. But very nice! We had good service. Loved our room. Even though the decor was from past years, there was still a microwave and fridge in the room. (tucked away in the closet). Used the pool and hot tub. Good food in the restaurant. Convenient location. We attended the... More

Family of four spent one night at the Fulton Steamboat. Kids were impressed with the external appearance and nautical decor. Room was clean but there were no tissues nor a place for them - quite strange! A/C didn't work well overnight. It got quite warm in the room even though it was chilly outside and we had the system set... More

The Steamboat is a touch pricey, but we had a great time. Next trip will be with a bathing suit. there's a hot tub and pool and they do cater to adults. We just stayed for one night but I was rested the next day.

We had an excellent stay at the Fulton Steamboat Inn. We liked the nautical theme and noticed that everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Our room was clean and tidy. The restaurant was very good as well. We would stay here again if in the area.

We stay at the Steamboat Inn every year when we visit Lancaster. It is so welcoming-- lovely, nicely decorated and so cozy. We eat at their Huckleberry's Restaurant: delicious food, nice decor. Bill Horn sings and plays the keyboard and it is very enjoyable after a long day of shopping. This year Jose and Nicole were our servers and we... More

We visited Fulton Steamboat Inn several years ago and it was kind of run down and in need of updating. Well it has been updated and is now among the top places to stay while visiting Lancaster PA. Everything has been upgraded and repaired since we stayed there years ago. The prices for the stay are similar with other local... More

We just stopped here because it was the first place we came across. It was definitely one of the best hotels I have ever been at. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel atmosphere is awesome as you feel you are aboard a steamship. It's very clean and the decorations make the place. The housekeeping staff always left... More
