I booked my Mother, Aunt, and myself each in separate rooms for 2 nights during a stay in Lancaster We came to visit and see the Sight and Sound show The staff was very professional and friendly

The grounds and facility were very clean and beautiful views of the country from the position of the hotel! There was a small shopping center with a great grocery store and a few restaurants within walking distance at the bottom of the hill The hotel was also right off the interstate exit so not hard to find Also, easy drive directly to downtown Lancaster The rooms were amazing Very clean, nice comfy mattress, linens, towels, and room layout was like studio apt Full size kitchen refrigerator was awesome with microwave and sink Also had utensils etc but I didn’t need them The living area had desk and large sofa TV turned to king bed and there was a large closet area and vanity area across from it Then the large bathroom with one of the largest walk-in showers I’ve ever seen! I enjoyed an extra long shower that stayed hot!! Will definitely return here next year!

Bridget Drake

Thank you Residence Inn Lancaster for a truly amazing stay! We stayed with them during an extended work assignment and must say the staff and other guests made us feel like we were at home, not at a hotel! The location is great, the rooms spacious, the beds comfortable, but it was the countless small things that each of the staff members would do on a daily basis that added up to the best stay! We would definitely recommend you stay at the Residence Inn Lancaster Oh, and your fur babies will agree as they are wonderful at spoiling them as well!

Kyle Weber

It’s acceptable for a night but not anything I would go out of my way to experience again Cleanliness was just on the edge of fine — the top of the refrigerator was dusty and a little sticky (?) while the room itself clearly showed some wear and tear They were fully booked so I understand that the room that we were going to get wouldn’t be perfect but it was still disappointing given the price we paid to see some glaring flaws in the room

Service was friendly although the Residence Inn breakfast fell way below the level I’d expect for this type of hotel (it was way below even the average Hampton Inn breakfast I’ve had at half this price point) Again, it’s broadly acceptable but I wouldn’t really recommend it

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel It was much nicer than I expected The hotel, the grounds and the pool were all very nice, clean, and well maintained

The staff might have been the friendliest group I have ever encountered The rooms were nice and clean I am crazy when it comes to bathrooms and these were exceptionally clean The shower had great water pressure and actually drained correctly Most hotels (even more expensive ones) leave you standing in a pool of dirty waterThe cafe inside isn’t a Michelin starred restaurant, but the food was good and they didn’t price gouge Again, the staff was super nice and accommodatingI would definitely stay here again I am already planning to use this hotel for our annual golf outing

Nicole Bibeau

We booked for the kids pool with the water slide, but the slide was removed Our daughter still enjoyed herself but it was still a bummer Pools were clean and warm

The hot tub is walled off, empty and maybe under construction Our room is nice, but we didn’t have a book for room service or local restaurants Room is insulated from outside noise Even with an event going on we did not hear a thing AC in the room was very loud when turning On and off It was startling at nightThe restaurant still has a very limited menu, so our dinner choices were disappointing Dogs are allowed (pets) in the restaurant so the meal included barkingFront desk staff is great! Super friendly and kind Grounds are beautiful and well keptOverall not a super great experience for the price we paid

Peter Cunnius

Sorry this is long, but I love this venue!I have visited this awesome venue multiple times over the years for business meetings, seminars, and conferences The location is easy to find, ambiance is luxurious, the restaurants food good, staff friendly and rooms clean! The grounds are relaxing The area around the lake has a walking pathway and many chairs to relax by lake under tree shade

The church is beautiful both inside & outside architecturally Not sure if this is part of the venue, but its off the walking pathThe area has developed over the years and a Starbucks is across the driveway! ☕️ 😉 Plenty of other shopping and eateries across the main road If you stay don’t forget the warm chocolate chip cookie at check-in counter and good lancaster county brand complimentary coffee in lobbyLancaster County is home to fabulous culture of Amish and Mennonite and is a great educational trip In the hotel lobby has plenty of resources to find these treasured experiences Build a day or two to relax and enjoy!

Ali Jurgens

I’ve stayed here a few times now The softest sheets I have ever slept on!!!! Beds are very comfortableVery friendly and accommodating front desk staff

It can get busy at times but the rooms are always clean and comfortable, and though I have only had the breakfast once I found it to be a decent selection even later in the morning The only complaint I have is that elevator is quite slow even though there are only 3 floors- usually I just opt for the stairs Still, a great place to stay and a fair price for the level of comfortOverall this is always a pleasant stay and it is in walking distance to one of our favorite local restaurants- Fireside Tavern (get the tomato bisque)!

Shirley Jones-Kolarik

Okay I have an admission I thought since it was called Express on the end, it might be not as nice as other places we’ve stayed

Oh was I wrong! I’m huge on cleanliness when I stay overnight in hotels and I found this Holiday inn Express to be very clean We had two queen size beds and I usually loath the top comforter and take it off the bed prior to sleeping in it, but this comforter you could tell was not only very soft and beautifully white, but it was able to be washed as often as the sheets The shower worked nice and I absolutely love their choice of shampoo and cream rinse and body wash that they gave Not those tiny little bottles that you have to bang against your hand to get a little bit out of They had pumps right in the showers The downstairs breakfast was very nice as well All the basics, and everything you would wantThe only one negative I have to maybe say is about the pool Me and my sister were looking forward to it but it wasn’t his appealing as we had hoped And it was very hot and muggy inside where we didn’t even feel comfortable sitting and watching the one guest we went with swim It was just too hot in there to stay Other than that I would definitely stay here again! Thank you for everything!

Kurtley Tate

This is absolutely the worst hotel I have been to in years The staff are rude and the rooms don’t smell clean I had to request a new room twice before finding one that was not smelly

I was treated with suspicion for wanting a better smelling room like I was trying to get over on them or something It was a mind boggling experience as I was asked if I wanted air freshener for a room which smelled like it had not been cleaned House keeping is also rude as they barged in on my twice before checkout time almost rushing me to leave and though the door in the room says check out time is noon it is actually 11amsmh I had house keeping banging on my door at 10:50 I’m not sure what they are cleaning though as the rooms are not clean! I only gave it one star because the complimentary breakfast was decent I travel a lot so it was better than most hotels I have been to but overall what a terrible experience Do better Holiday Innthis is unacceptable

Esti Z

Overall our stay was very pleasant The room and hotel were very clean and organized Beds were comfortable, pillows were too soft for my liking but that’s a personal preference

The breakfast was good, I just wish it wasn’t done so early (6-9am), some people like to sleep in during vacation time, it would be nice if it lasted a bit longer I would definitely recommend the hotel and will stay there again next time I go back to the area

Lindsay Griesbach (Vitale)

Overall a nice hotel! 24/7 coffee is a nice touch for travelers Quiet and clean hotel Only thing I would have liked would be a pillow menu or firmer pillows

Usually I bring one of my orthopedic pillows from home but I forgot it and my necks screaming at me for it The staff here are the nicest and most helpful people Deana gave us great recommendations and was very welcoming the nighttime staff(sorry didn’t catch the names) were very helpful for takeout recommendations during the snow storm as well The pool had too much chlorine so we only went for one dip! But I’m sure that’s a safety precaution Lovely job Tru we will DEFINITELY be returning Thanks for a great stay!

M Klein

We arrived and were warmly welcomed by the front desk and all the other hotel staff Although our group was quite big and a little noisy, we were very surprised by the loving and accepting atmosphere at the Hotel We really enjoyed the Lobby accommodations and spent lots of time in the Lobby eating and playing area with our families

Hilton and their dedicated staff made a very long and great impression in our short and pleasant stay

Shoutout to Tyler! I was charged twice for my dog (even though I already paid the fee in the beginning) Tyler was the person who checked my family and I in Therefore I gave him a call and told him about the issue

He kindly helped me figure out this issue and made sure I got my money back Additionally, kitchen staff were very nice and attentive!The only reason why I gave this hotel a 4 star was because no one came to take the trash out of our rooms due to covid policy I had to call the front desk (someone else besides Tyler) to pick up trash bags and toilet paper

Becky Powell

On a traveling adventure Booked online The room was ok

Dated but pretty clean Between the poor confused service desk lady and the online booking they somehow messed up our payment and we spent over an hour in the lobby waiting on them to sort it out It was stressful and embarrassing even though it was in no way any fault of ours Really should have just canceled and left but we had already checked into our room and I had no idea what might happen with our payment Anyway finally got things straightened out and stayed the night Will probably never be in that area again anyway

Jenny Spano

If I could give negative stars, I wouldOur first room smelled like an old ashtray We were given a second room that we had to share with hundreds of SUGAR ANTS–BEHIND THE BED AND UNDER THE HEADBOARD!!!The front desk person offered to let us check out at midnight (with no where else to stay) or we could clean it ourselves

neither was really acceptableWe tried the sofa bed but it was too uncomfortable and too close to the ants We didn’t sleepWe were offered a refund but were charged because the cleaning crew didn’t see any antsthey probably didn’t move the bed or the nightstandwhich is a completely different cleanliness and hygiene concernWe stayed on Friday 1 Aril 2022

Pros:Beautiful hotel, definitely geared towards business Next time will explore the area around it Nice room, spacious, nice bathroom

Cons: staff at the Starbucks was not friendly They seemed bothered to serve guests (Not a reflection of actual hotel so will not lose a start for this, but training is needed for staff who works at a landmark downtown hotel)

David Bishop

We had a great time at this hotel After we parked o/s the hotel, we were met by Don Brown the bellman Don was very friendly, welcoming and told us about places to see and places to eat

He took our bags on a cart and showed us to our room after we checked in Don is a great first impression for the hotel We were checked in by a very friendly person at the desk She upgraded us to a better view from our room And the view was spectacular We enjoyed our stay up until Sunday morning breakfast at the Two Kings restaurant We arrived there Sunday am and found it to be a buffet breakfast Which was ok but all the food was cold and the attendants weren’t very welcoming

Jeremy Clarke

The hotel was nice Clean rooms, poor water pressure It is perfectly located to enjoy downtown Lancaster

However, I found that my tips for food service were altered + 300%!When I called the hotel to discuss with a manager several times I got voice mail and never received a call back after 3 monthsI will not stay here again as a result If anyone does, keep your receipts and make sure tips match what’s charged yo your account!Very disappointed that management would not return a platinum lifetime membership calls to share this concern I didn’t even want reimbursement, just wanted to share the concern so others didn’t experience the same theft

Chrissie B.

We were looking for a place for our mini vacation that was near to everything we wanted to visit and this place was right by all we wanted to do The parking lot, hotel, and room were very clean We got a King Bed suite

I was amazed when I saw how big the room was You had a small room when you enter with desk and counter space with small size fridge and microwave The sofa was a pull out bed also so it will work with children, we were just a couple visiting Then the bedroom has a door and spacious room The only thing for some might be if you get a street front room you will hear the low hum of the vehicles and trucks Nothing too bad Didn’t bother us at all The bathroom had a double sink The breakfast was just the basic breakfast foods with waffles you can make Which was fine by us We didn’t use the housekeeping services since we were only there for 3 days Great place all around!

Carrie Bergum

The Country Inn & Suites was absolute perfection for a hotel From the time I checked in until I left the staff was helpful and friendly I was in an ADA room and for the first time, the bed was not too high and the shower actually accommodated someone with limited mobility

The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were clean Even though they did not clean every day because of Covid, they did check in to see if there was anything I wanted done or needed This is a great place to stay

Noah Kilgore

Located right in Lancaster, this was a great place to stay while visiting places in the Amish Country The complementary breakfast is pretty good; it’s about what you’d expect from a hotel The workout room was quaint but better than nothing, and their pool/spa area is a nice additional bonus of staying there, but it’s nothing to write home about

It’s a mere four foot pool, but small children will be able to enjoy it while adults relax in the hot tub (spa) The workers were all amicable for the most partThe room that we stayed in was very spacious for a hotel room and this hotel probably has the best options for larger familiesThere are definitely cooler hotels in Lancaster (ex: Red Caboose Motel), but I had a very enjoyable stay and it could be the best fit for your personal needs, so definitely consider staying here if you’re planning a vacation to Lancaster

If you’re looking for a quiet getaway and relaxation, this is not the hotel I was so excited to have a romantic getaway with my husband The hotel is beautiful, however, the walls are paper thin

There was a wedding the same night we were there Guests from the wedding party stayed on the fourth floor, where we stayed I could hear their conversations as if they were in the room with us Groups of people continued coming and going, and their conversations got louder and louder No privacy whatsoever We ended up leaving that same night

Aaron Langley

Lovely building with great architectural details and hip decor

but undoubtedly the loudest hotel I’ve ever stayed in Every footstep from the floor above is a bang followed by a creak And the walls allowed you to hear clearly the conversation from the rooms next door The space was fantastic and I’m sure if you are there for a wedding or event, it is top notch But if you are coming through to simply get a good nights sleep, you are in real trouble


Booked the hotel one hour before arrival, rooms were already set up and we were welcomed by the employee at the entrance Although I’ve read some negative recommendation about the hotel being noisy, I personally could not hear any other noises besides the A/C in the nightThe location is close to the city and you can easily roam around and explore Lancaster, but the factory itself is worth a look as well as they keep the factory theme even in the rooms

Rooms were nice and clean and the beds very comfyIn total, the hotel was worth the money and I enjoyed the stay

Kirk Rose, Jr

Great hotel Not super huge, but very spaceous The staff was very friendly and responded to our requests very quickly

Only downside is they do not offer a real breakfast on weekends They offered a bag “breakfast” which included a banana, yogurt, and a granola bar It was free which was nice, but having a real breakfast option that we could pay for would have been preferredThere is a Turkey Hill 2 minutes away (by foot) so that’s a bonus

Diana Cadena

Very disappointed at the price I paid for the quality of the room I was charged almost $100 more for the second night Something I’ve never experienced before in any of my hotel reservations

When I called to inquire about the rate, the answer was simply it was my fault for not looking at the reservation confirmation more carefully No breakfast included, not even a bottle of water inside the fridge They said It is only given to a Hilton Honors member which in fact, I am…I guess there is no advantages to be a member

Steve Grant

Hugely disappointed in the hotel vs the price to stay there Rooms are outdated No breakfast available other than a granola bar and a banana in a brown paper bag that you pick up at the front desk

For $35800/night I would expect a little more than thatOverall, a huge ripoff and extremely disappointing for a Hilton propertyI recommend the Marriott in town for half the price and a much nicer experience

Who is writing these reviews?? The staff was fine, friendly, informative, polite The rooms, as was mentioned in several other reviews, smelled of mildew and the mattresses on the beds should have been changed years agoThe connected restaurant had very limited service but enough liquor to help you forget where you were

These “reviews” need to be validated

Ashlee Easterwood

I stayed here over the weekend of April 22nd Staff was incredibly snobby, prudish and annoyed of we interrupted personal conversations they had behind the deskWater in the shower changes from scalding hot to freezing cold in seconds, no matter what temperature it is set on

Shades in windows are falling apart Rooms smell pretty bad Beds are old and extremely stiff Hotel smells like weed throughout the nightI believe the same owners own Your Place bar next door The staff at the bar must have been hired by a different person because they’re all way brighter to deal with than the staff at the innI’d go to the Red Roof Inn instead

Debbie Watson

We had a nicely decorated room We reserved a smoking room online but when we got there we were told no smoking on premises Then we go all the way around to our room (my sister is handicapped) only to find out keys do not work

However, the rest of our trip was nice The housekeeping crew kept our room c very clean They need to update their website to include no smoking on premises

The family had a dance competition at a nearby venue which expected an arm and a leg in order to stay there This hotel was recommended as it was close and much less expensive Turns out not only was the recommendation correct but this was this a nicer hotel in general

From the ladies who checked us in of Friday evening to the cleaning service on Saturday everyone we came in contact with was friendly and helped make our stay more enjoyable As an unexpected bonus when the front desk found out we had won 1st place, our team were given ice cream! Necessary? Absolutely not Greatly appreciated? 100% yesWe have another competition in a couple more weeks Guess where we have already made our reservations?

It was one of the best travelling experiences of my life Everything was perfect from the moment Keith greeted us and gave us a tour around the house We received valuable advice on where to eat and what attractions to see

Our room was cozy and comfortable which gave us the feeling of home The property has a nice garden with many trees and flowers, a small pond with golden fish, and a tiny waterfall The breakfast that Brad cooked for us was superb It was delicious and looked amazing Would definitely recommend and come back!

Teresa Marie

My mother and I just returned from a fantastic stay at the Lancaster! We were treated with such kindness and attentiveness from innkeepers Brad and Keith Everything about our stay was wonderful – the cozy and spotless Juniper room, the delicious breakfasts, the homey feel of the sitting areas and the great conversations! Not to mention the great suggestions and recommendations for what to see, do and where to eat in beautiful Lancaster county We are so glad we chose to stay at the Lancaster to jumpstart our short get-away and our trip to the near-by Sight & Sound Theater

Thank you again, Brad and Keith!

Quinn Beck

I stayed in the Clove on a solo Mommy getaway and it was absolutely amazing Very charming room and the bathtub was just what I wanted for a quiet night awayBrad and Keith were very accommodating for my storage and dietary needs as a nursing mother and were so friendly and delightful while they served a delicious breakfast

The main floor is welcoming and the porch and garden is peaceful, pleasant and maintained; I am obsessed with the whole property and would love to return

Very nice hotel Beautiful in fact! Great meeting venues in the restaurant area Immaculate house cleaning and very well designed and comfortable rooms at a reasonable price

We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful This will be our hotel of choice for future visits to Lancaster The location is near most everything and easy access Highly recommended!

M Preciado

We stayed at this hotel for two nights The service at the front desk was hit or miss The hotel is comfortable and in an excellent location

Very close to everything The hotel is 100% solar powered, as per the sign at the entrance Nice bonus There is an excellent outdoor space with a fireplace The gentlemen bartender was excellent Very helpfulTips:1) Luggage carts There are too few luggage carts If you get there at peak hours you may have to do without At one point, I asked the front desk clerk if she could have someone try to locate one, and she said there where none available2) This is a pet friendly hotel We took our dog with us and there is a $7500 fee per stay The odd thing was that there are no doggy bags When I asked the front desk, she assured me that there were doggy bags at both side entrances There were none I went back to the desk and told her that one doggy bag holder was empty, and the other one was missing, there were two holes in the wall where it should have been She found3) The doggy bag holders look like mailboxes and are attached to the post outside the door See the picture4) EV Charger- There is only one

Had a really great stay here We wanted to be near Dutch Wonderland and Hershey Park The hotels in Hershey were pricey, so we stayed here and drove to Hershey Park – about 40 minutes

It’s either new or newly renovated Very nice room – well appointed, clean There was a microwave and fridge No safe which I like to have Plenty of parking A fire pit outside I highly recommend it if you’re in the area Very nice, helpful staff Due to COVID, they only service the room every few days, which was fine with us

Stayed here with my sister and daughter and took advantage of the dinner theatre package which includes dinner and a show at Dutch Apple dinner theatre and breakfast the next morning It’s a large hotel with a restaurant, bar and ballrooms, there were 2 weddings going on that weekend The theatre is right behind the hotel so just a quick walk back to the room

I believe we had one of the renovated rooms on the first floor and it was really nice Decorated nicely and beds were very comfortable I honestly got a great night’s sleep and I don’t sleep well in hotels usually Even though there were a lot of people staying in our wing we didn’t hear a thing all night Water pressure was fine and the towels were so soft I am trying to find a set to buy online!We really enjoyed the dinner and show and it was nice to be able to walk down the hall for breakfast the next day Breakfast was good – not fancy but they had scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits, fresh fruit, yogurt cereal etc and waitress service for coffee Overall a really good deal for the package, I checked hotel prices nearby and this place was definitely a bargain We will be back!


The main entrance to the hotel is to the left after entering the parking lot off of Centerville road It sits right next to the Dutch Apple diner theatre, making it very convenient to stay if you don’t want to drive after a late night at the theatreThere are a ton of great, but also concerning reviews out there, so I didn’t know what to expect

First experience- the young man who checked us in was very nice, quick and helpful Great startWhile the hotel itself is a bit dated, and not many modern touches, my room was as clean and the bed was about as comfortable as you could get with one that’s not your own Everything in the room worked as expectedThere is a restaurant and bar in the hotel I didn’t get to try the food, but my wife and I visited the bar for one round before going to bed The bar was nice, beer was cold, and bartender was very nice and attentiveI would stay again

Room was clean, staff was friendly Leave yourself extra time for the shower – the shower head was so small, took me extra time to wash my hair Don’t bother with the breakfast – they tell you it’s $11

50 plus tax & gratuity – when I got my bill at check out – they charged $ 1936 for the first breakfast and $ 1851 for the second breakfast No idea why so much for gratuity!! I did notice the ONE waitress working didn’t refuse a tip from a customer, so my guess is they don’t see the outrageous tip they tag on to each persons bill Side note, the breakfast was NOT worth it – wasn’t anything beyond what you would get for free from someone place like Holiday Inn Express – although they did have “fresh” fruit, but it was beyond fresh (old)

Stayed overnight for a concert in Reading and couldn’t be happier Room was extremely clean, climate control kept me comfortable at my preferred 67 degrees Location is perfect – there are dozens of restaurants within 5 miles, including almost every major chain

Outlet shops were accessible without having to even get on the main highway Check-in was flawless, staff was personable and attentive One of the best hotels I’ve stayed in in the last couple of years


I only gave service a 3 (as if a neutral rating) because our stay there was very brief We checked in extremely late and left very early The woman who checked us in was pleasant and agreeable

The room was clean, the bathroom was good, and the bed was comfortable We missed the breakfast so I cannot comment on their breakfast It was, however, included with our stay

My husband, my parents and I were checking in My husband gave his card, the man said it was declined Tried another and the guy said that was also declined

I then said to use mine which went through My husband looked why he didn’t have enough money and his bank account said that the Comfort Inn DID take money out of his account We showed the guy and he said oh it’s pending so it’s not really taken out We said yes it did take the money, I went on my mine and showed it was the same Then he said oh well it will be back in account in a day or two usually it takes We called bank and they said it shows it was charged, that we needed to go to the guy and tell him if the charge doesn’t go back on the card we would dispute it We did this Next day we went down to tell them the charge was still pending and we had asked to talk to manager and the guy went back and the manager never came out We were so frustrated because what if I didn’t have my card, we wouldn’t have been able to stay And as of now we have a double charge for a one night stay To say the least I’m very irritated and ready to do what we have to in order to get our money back 😡

Robert Posman

This hotel was a life savor and Shannon at the desk was terrific Hotel is very clean, rooms are large, service is great, and has everything We were coming back from a long road trip and checked into a hotel down the street only to leave within minutes, the hotel was beyond livable, and everyone was getting sick from second hand smoke (it was supposed to be smoke free)

The area was pretty occupied but they had some rooms left and we registered Shannon followed up with us to make sure everything was fine We were very satisfied with the Fairfield, I rarely have problems with Marriott hotels


Perfect location! In town for concert at nearby venue Property is also walking distance to outlet mall and local amusement park Desk staff was friendly and attentive

Rooms clean and attractive but ac was a bit wonky Did upgrade to mini suite Nice to have comfortable area for tv viewing separate from sleeping Did a nice job with hot breakfast adhering to enhance safety protocols Loved the tiny frittatas!!! Would definitely return

Room was very clean upon arrival Bed was comfortable, and everything we needed was provided Hotel was quiet but for the last night of our stay, and even then it was still fairly quiet and certainly so after 11pm

Indoor pool was open until 10pm, giving plenty of time for swimming Breakfast had plenty of options Location was great Will definitely stay again

Jorge Rodriguez

This hotel is pretty nice! Rooms are big, amenities are spacious and clean, personnel is so nice and polite and breakfast has good variety and you can have coffee 24h! The parking lot is big enough so you won’t have issues parking And you can even go for a run -or a walk- just right outside the hotel (they even have directions of the route) I do highly recommend this place

Rabid Beagle

I stayed at a Hilton last year and swore I’d never do it again I actually stayed in one for business a few months back and it was great so decided to give them a other try I’m glad I did

The people were super friendly, the room was very clean and taken care of The breakfast was awesome Excellent stayBut just so you knowit’s a bit of a ride to Lancaster I was under the impression that it was closer than it actually was Not a deal breaker tho Also, there is a highway close by and you can hear the traffic in your room But, again, not a deal breaker Maybe ask for a room that doesn’t face the highway

•We absolutely love the “Victorian Sophistication” of the Fulton Steamboat Inn, the heated pool, hot tub and beautiful grounds We’re usually there 2-3 times a year, not only to stay after a show at the American Music Theater, but since we live less than 1 hr away, just to get out and away

It continues to be immaculate, lots of fun and the staff superb•Only 4 stars this time – Covid has hurt staffing in their Huckleberry’s Restaurant Apart from Millers and Olive Garden, it’s the only decent restaurant in an area populated with junk food restaurants fit for tourists with kids Huckleberry’s had been closed for a while due to staffing issues, so we checked the website before we booked and it noted Huckleberry’s was now open Thursday – Saturday eveningsBut when we arrived Thursday afternoon for our get-away, the front desk informed us it was closed due to staffing problemsIn addition, the free Chocolate Chip cookies were unavailable due to the kitchen being too busy (Tavern)So we went across the road to a busy and fully staffed Olive Garden, (with servers and bus-servers) and had a delightful mealWe can hardly wait until the Fulton’s servers return, or is there a reason Olive Garden has a whole team of attentive servers?We still love the Fulton

I really love the uniqueness of the Fulton Steamboat Inn This was our first stay at this inn and I’m so glad I chose this location The inn overall was just beautiful and the decor within was impeccable and the staff were so nice

In the evening, the outside of the inn itself is decorated with beautiful bright lighting The food at the Huckleberry Restaurant within the inn was delicious and plentiful Also, hotel guests would receive a coupon for their famous complimentary cookiessimply mouth watering They also had a tavern, indoor pool, fitness room, hot tub and sun room In addition, there is a sundeck on rooftop and a open fire pit on the premises to roast marshmallows I didn’t get a chance to view these areas I can go on and on but you have to experience it yourself I will be going back in the summertime so I can sit outside near the koi and duck pond I can’t wait Come on summertime!!!!

Kim Powers

Me and my husband have been coming here for years It’s our little tradition and it really feels like a second home to us The staff is accommodating, pleasant and always behind the desk in case anyone needs anything

The tavern always has great bartenders and good food! The pond in the back is really the icing on the cake It’s so relaxing to sit by the fire pit and roast some marshmallows Will always continue to stay here once (sometimes twice) a year for many more years to come
