It is convenient to the awesome Sight and Sound theater, the Amish Village and the historic Strasburg Railroad which are places we went. Also the restaurant within the hotel, Huckleberry's, is wonderful and we have... More

It was beautiful when we walked in .....I felt like I'd stepped into a Mark Twain novel. The service in the restaurant was slightly slow, but it... More

My husband and I always stay at the Fulton Steamboat every year for our anniversary when we visit Field of Screams. We have been loyal customers for about four years, but we were a little disappointed this time. No cookies were available on both days we stayed and the jacuzzi temperature was cold . We will definitely be back but... More
