It was worth the extra costs since we are in the middle of town and walking distance to restaurants, shops and very convenient self-parking. We were on the 6th floor with a great view of the July 4 fireworks. Big room with comfortable queen sized beds with free internet access.

I recently stayed at this hotel for a week on business. The only drawback is the fee to park which is understandable for this type of town. I stayed for 4 days and had to pay 32$ (never left the hotel with car so I don't know how much that changes the price). Other than that I had no issues... More

Just returned from another trip to wonderful Gettysburg. We stayed at the Gettysburg Hotel, Lincoln Square, which is the "jewel" of any of the hotels in the area. There are plenty of other accomodations available, but if you have NEVER visited the Gettysburg area, this is a "must stay"! We HAVE stayed at various other accomodations in the area, over... More

Perfectly located in the center of town. It is THE town landmark. The hotel is beautiful -- built before 1800 but fully updated with luxury features. Walking into the lobby, you feel for a minute as if you're visiting the White House. The front desk staffer I spoke with was friendly and very professional. Our room in the main building... More

We spent two nights at this lovely hotel. The room was large, everything spotless, bed very comfortable; it was a pleasure to stay there. Plus, it is in the center square of Gettysburg so we walked around all the shops and to dinner. Some of the shops were open for First Friday with extra treats. We had two breakfasts at... More

The hotel may be from 1800s but it sure doesn't show it. It is remodeled showing no evidence of history. Clean and we'll staffed, but if you want the stories and the feel of Gettysburg, there are many other choices.

Nice hotel with big rooms. It's been remodeled and the shades do not block out the light so bring some that can cover the windows. We were in room 303 and the sun came up at 4:55 until 7:55 a.m. The the sun was to,enable.

The stopper in the tub didn't work so you couldn't take a bath. NO USB ports in the room. Not one! This is 2014, isn't it? The woman at the front desk who checked us in was less than friendly. They tell you, at check in, that you have to park your car in the parking garage in the back.... More

We arrived at 2 and was checked right in. ( check in is at 4). Parking is around back in a pay lot for $10 a day. They should really offer free parking permits to those who stay in the suites for the price you pay. The room itself was nice, the sitting area in the king bedroom suite was... More

Just returned from a girls getaway weekend at this hotel. Great location, pleasant and helpful staff, nice amenities and clean environment. The restaurant was good as well, with tasty food, decent prices, and large potions. Only downside was the coffee- too strong and bitter. ;) Oh well, I still highly recommend!
