I was so desperate to get out and see the Mural Mile before we left Philadelphia this morning, I set my alarm for 6:30am just to make sure I’d have ample time to do the whole walk. I was also hoping to find the Mosaic Garden I’d read about from a clipping stuck up in the lift.

On waking I found the weather to be even worse …

Moo-licious!!!

What a Moo-licious day! Thanks for Hershey and Mr. Alex's quote :-)

Woke up to a very fine morning, had 1-3 inches of new snow from last night. A last min plan to visit pretzel bakery and chocolate factory. After much grumbles, everyone was out of the house by noon......Thank you, Baba, for being so flexible and put up with your ever unpredictable wife!

Per Pichin's suggestion, we drove to Lititz, a ...

... on billboards and store names, they would create beautiful songs with harmonies and chorus. It was very exciting! We couldn't have had this much fun on our trip, though, without our 2 drivers: Venkat and Murali! Driving across the country is not an easy thing and they managed to help us the whole way! Thanks to both of you!

The trip was challenging at times when the kids fell sick and ...

Left Downingtown at 7:30 in the morning . Kids were ready by 6 am and were super excited on seeing the 12 seater. Lots of space for 8 of us and plenty of room for the luggage. We made sure we filled up the whole trunk space with 8 suitcases, stuff for cooking , stuff for playing - cricket bat and tennis racquets as well as loads of snacks to help us during our 10 day ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Fulton Steamboat Inn Lancaster

    Shhhh dont tell anyone ....

    from

    really dont want to tell people where i stayed because then it will get toooo crowded and the prices will rise but here goes...stayed at the Fulton Steamboat and it is wonderful had a great room and have no complaints and will most definately go there again as we have stayed there before and it is the only place decent in lancaster to stay...

    Family fun aboard the Steamboat

    from

    Some friends recommended this hotel to us. We are happy they did because it was just great! It was extremely kid-friendly and was centrally located to restaurants, attractions, outlet malls (Rockvale across the street).

    The rooms and decor really made you feel you were on a real steamboat.

    My daughter danced along with the music playing in the hallways!

    There is a farm adjacent to the property and the hotel's grounds are just breathtaking...

    Take a ride on the steamboat and enjoy!!!

    Never again!!

    from

    Our family travels to Lancaster all the time and has always wanted to try to Steamboat. So, I called for reservations for Saturday August 23. I was told that there was a 2-night minimum so I said "Ok" I will reserve for the 22nd and the 23rd. Reserationist took all the info - confirmed dates/room type/etc and gave me conf #. A few days later called back to re-confirm and to add a roll a way bed. When we arrived at the hotel on the evening of the 22nd we were told we only had a reservation for the 23rd. I said, "no - you have a 2 night minimum and I am confirmed for the 22nd and 23rd". They were EXTREMELY rude and told me I had no reservation and they were full. When I inquired for a manager - there was none available - when I inquired what they intended to do they gave no assistance. I finally had to get on my cell phone - find another hotel of lesser quality for more money and go there. When I asked what compensation I might get for this I was told they did not owe me anything because the reservationist did not "remember making the reservation" so it was not their fault. I called 2 times over the weekend for the manager but was continually told there was no one available. I will NEVER stay there again and strongly suggest that anyone who values service do not do so either. They were rude, unhelpful and a discredit to the usual Amish Country politeness.

    Flair in lancaster

    from

    The steamboat was very nice if I knew it was so nice would have booked for a couple of days only stayed one night. Next trip kids will be going the pool will be enjoyed by both kids. Would highly recommend price was very reasonable for area.

    Nice stay at the Steamboat

    from

    Just returned from PA, stayed two nights at the Fulton Steamboat. Very clean, nice pool area and nice rooms. Also very quiet even though lots of kids around (including our own)! Had a wonderful Christmas dinner for a reasonable price. The dining room staff was great, housekeeping gave us extra pillows and towels on the spot when asked. I had called ahead for reservations and total check-in time was probably 5 minutes. We got a great rate off the Steamboat's website. Although when I called for reservations, the person that took my call said she didn't know what the dining room hours were or even if they would be open.

    Horrible Service/Management

    from

    I have never stayed at this place---nor will I EVER stay here now. My parents have been wanting to try it, so I ordered a gift certificate from them (as a X-Mas present). I received the bill in the mail two days later and NO gift certificate. Trying to rectify this matter with management is impossible. Employees at the hotel kept telling me to give it a couple of more days...maybe it's "late." I kept explaining it's now only a couple of days until X-Mas---could they please reissue and fedex a new one, so that I could have it in time. until today, (Dec. 22) I have not received this and management's response has been reprehensible. They continue to tell me to wait (first it was until Saturday, now---until Monday)---that they cannot reissue another one (for reasons which make no sense)---and they make seem like I'm the one at fault. They are completely unapologetic...even condescending and nasty...and unwilling to work with you when they are at fault. I then told them I wanted to the certificate as I am now completelt turned off---and I was told to call back---that the manager needed to do it---and I was hung up on ---TWICE!!! I am going to tell everyone and anyone who will listen not to stay at this hotel. I'm sure it's nice---but the employees and manager are sure NOT.

    Gets better everytime I stay there...

    from

    These other reviews are completely untrue. I stay at the Fulton Steamboat every time I go to Lancaster. Every time I go I find that they have added something or renovated something to be better than it was before.

    I agree - Not What it used to be

    from

    My family and I have stayed at the Fulton Steamboat Inn several times over that past four years, and we had always been more than satisfied with the accomodations, cleanliness and the atmosphere of this unique inn.

    Not what it used to be....

    from

    I have been to this place many times over the years, and, unfortunately I don't think I could go there again. It's a shame because it's such a cute and charming hotel, plus it has large rooms and an indoor pool.

    Great Place

    from

    This place is aboslutely amazing. I stay in Lancaster quite often with my family. This is a great place for kids. Very Clean.
