At Fulton Steamboat, we strive to do our best to deserve five star reviews as a Lancaster PA hotel, and, we always look for ways to improve, so we want to hear feedback on how to get more stars from people who give us less than five stars.

Here are some of the most recent reviews on Trip Advisor that made us smile and happy knowing we were able to enhance someone’s stay with us:

“Bucket List, You gotta do it! Come on, you have to stay on a faux Steamboat out in the middle of the PA countryside at least once! Seriously, wife and I adored this place. Check in at the desk was smooth and the staff very welcoming and friendly, even went the extra distance to offer us available free upgrades (Get an upstairs room with a balcony, its worth it). The restaurant and bar were wonderfully decorated to fit the theme and the food was great. The indoor pool was refreshing, clean and they have quiet hours for adults only. You can tell this is a hot spot for both locals and tourists. Worth the money, you will enjoy the stay”, 49jrp from AZ

“Stayed for the second time and loved it. Great service, friendly staff, very clean. Convenient location, Pretty outdoor area, cozy spots to sit inside. Quiet, nice pool and hot tub. Had family style breakfast in restaurant. Food was very good, service wonderful!” Aprusinski from PA

“My mother in law has always wanted to stay here, so this year we did and we’ll never stay anywhere else. The place was fantastic, very clean, the staff was friendly, polite and always looking to help. Rooms were great, indoor pool, property was landscaped beautiful. You feel like you’re on a real ship.” Dogroomr from NY

“My boyfriend and I stayed at the Steamboat the end of April and fell in love with it. The rooms were magnificent and we could have stayed at the Tavern all night. All of the staff were pleasant and accommodating. Can’t wait to return!” Kelley M

“My boys and I stayed here for the last stop on a spring break journey. All 3 of us were exhausted and pretty much ready to get home….thank goodness we stopped here before we did! What a cool, unique property. I could tell right upon walking in I had made a good choice in lodging. The whole place is nicely done, clean, and welcoming.

Our room was huge and nicely arranged. There were plenty of outlets for our multiple devices and lots of the extra little details that help separate great hotels from the run of the mills. We ate at the restaurant and were entertained by a very humorous piano player….great touch! This hotel embraces a kid friendly atmosphere, but I wouldn’t hesitate to do a couples getaway here WITHOUT the kids. I never got a chance to hang in the super cool lounge they have on property…maybe next time”, Cornish32 from OH

Fulton Steamboat’s look and feel is truly unique, and the surrounding is very tranquil, with the charming backdrop of Lancaster County abundant farmland. You’ll find walking trails around our koi pond, a fire pit, and plenty of opportunity to enjoy the sunset and the sunrise.

You’ll also appreciate the convenience of having two restaurants, so you can enjoy some great food and drinks right here in the hotel. And, we even provide entertainment on certain nights and a Happy Hour in the Tavern!
