My husband and I wanted to get away after Christmas for a couple of days. We are a young couple who loves to travel. I always use tripadvisor.com to book our trips and this place was considered # 1 in Lancaster so of course I had to check it out. Our check in was very speedy, the people were very polite and helpful. The hotel is very quaint and appealing! The decor is victorian and goes along with the whole Steamboat theme. On our second day the hot water was not working in our room. When we called down to the lobby we were given free breakfast vouchers while we waited for the issue to get fixed. Apparently, the entire hotel was having a hot water issue. After our delicious free breakfast at the Huckleberry restaurant, we went back to the hotel room and the water was working fine. We were very happy with how they took care of us!
We went outlet shopping at Tanger and Rockvale outlets. Rockvale outlets are literally right across the street. The Fulton is at an excellent location, near all of the stores and restaurants. It is also near quaint Amish villages as well if you take the back roads.
The hotel has a nice pool and a jacuzzi which we made use of. It is a family environment so there are tons of kids in the pool area. The jacuzzi is pretty nice too, the only thing is that there were several kids who decided they wanted to take a dip in the jacuzzi as well. The cool thing though is that from 10 pm to 12 am it is an adults only swim at the pool! Very appealing.
On our last day, the hot water was not working again ;( Instead of calling down to complain, since we were checking out anyway, I simply used the lukewarm water to wash my hair (not fun when it is 30 degrees outside). I'm not sure what the issue is, but hopefully they will fix it soon. Overall though, I will DEFINITELY come back. Upon our arrival we were given forty fulton dollars that can be used towards food, gifts, or our next stay. Again..very awesome! I would highly recommend this hotel. The decor is unique, the atmosphere is very warm and peaceful, and the location is excellent. Everyone was so friendly! We truly enjoyed our stay here.
