It looks just like an historical steamboat!

Booked this hotel on a lark, as it was close to Gettysburg and it has a steamboat theme. We found this place to be very delightful. The decor and fixtures made us feel like James Garner, Mel Gibson or Jodie Foster would appear from around a corner, in full costume from the movie Maverick. My wife wouldn't let me pretend to be gambler in the bar, something about having to act my age... -) Took a lot of pictures in the hotel, including some from the bar and lounge area at the 'bow' end of our floor. The views outside the hotel are a stark contrast from the the interior decor. The 'bow' of the hotel overlooks a strip mall (with several outlet stores). The highway is off the port side and farmland is off the starboard side. Still, we had a lot more fun at this hotel than we typically do at other hotels with 'normal' decor. We'd definitely stay there again.

Wonderful 2 day get away !!

The hotel on-line does not represent how lovely it really is. It was just immaculate in every area outside and inside. We were taken with the decor, the food in the restaurant, and our room was wonderful. We would highly recommend it for a get away or a family vacation.The location is amazing with one of the outlets right across the street and Sight and Sound is about a mile done the road.

Over the top Perfection

Our expectations weren't very high based on the Fulton Steamboat hotel website. I'm thrilled to say that the website does the hotel no justice! It was one of our best experiences ever. Warm chocolatechip cookies and lemon water in the lobby, attentive staff, spotless accommodations and bathroom, and plenty of parking on a sold out weekend. We booked late and and landed in a King plus bunkbed room complete with mini-fridge, table & chairs, dressing bench, closet, full bath plus separate extra sink. All this for just over a hundred bucks a night. Our only regret is forgetting to pack swimsuits! The age range of guests was infant to 100, the decor resembled 1800's luxury cruise ships and the walls were lined with photos of old steam paddle boats. All in all the place is amazing: value, location, amenities, service, and cleanliness. We are definitely going back to the Fulton Steamboat! By the way, outside there is a coy pond, duck pond, and a brand new playground with a wooden train.

My Stay

This hotel was great we went to a show at the American theater it is close by and there is a restaurant inside so we did not have to go look for a place to eat with great food. After the show we went back to their bar and had a few drinks before bed no driving was great. The staff was pleasant and helpful. I would recommend this just about anyone that wanted a unique experience .

Enjoyable getaway

We were in the Lancaster area to attend Sight and Sound Theater to see Moses. We had a very enjoyable stay. We had a few minor issues with the room that were addressed quickly. Food we had at the bar was very good. We would stay again at The Steamboat Hotel.

Something Different

If you are into a little different ambiance in the Lancaster area this hotel is for you. However, the amenities and service are average. If this hotel included breakfast it would be a great deal. That steamboat theme gives this hotel that little something extra that will make your stay more memorable. If you are a patron of Sight and Sound this hotel is very convenient.
