Coming to visit Lancaster PA is exciting enough; after all, this is a place abundant with history, attractions, and natural beauty, and its charm envelops every visitor. Now, the only thing that’s left to do is make sure you find a Lancaster PA hotel that will also enhance your experience and make your visit a truly memorable trip!

But, what should you consider when choosing a hotel?

As you can imagine, location is very important – after all, convenience is what many of us strive for, especially if we are traveling with children, or simply want to be surrounded by major attractions. So, selecting one of the Lancaster PA hotels on Route 30 is your great starting point!

Why Route 30? That’s easy – it’s the route that offers local artisan as well as outlet shopping, dozens of restaurants, family fun and cultural attractions. Make sure you look for Lancaster PA hotels near Dutch Wonderland especially if you travel with kids.

Route 30 will also take you into a distinctive world of the Amish. From here, all of Lancaster County PA is easily accessible and at your fingertips.

Once you’ve explored an amazing Dutch Country with all its bucolic charm, you’ll want to venture into the city of Lancaster and discover what our vibrant city has to offer. Again, Route 30 will quickly get you there, as well.

Now that you’ve picked the best location for your hotel, it’s time to consider other important things for your stay, such as amenities.

Your stay should be pleasant and memorable. Décor and features are very important to some, cleanliness and comfort to others. If you’re looking for all of the above, you’ll find it at The Fulton Steamboat Inn!
