If you are looking for fancy, a cocktail lounge and restaurant this is not the place. However, if you are looking for clean, comfortable and a super staff, great location and reasonable prices then the 1863 Inn is just the place. We truly enjoy every visit we make.

Friendliness by customer service at this hotel was minimal. The way check in treats you has a major effect about your feelings for the hotel. Not only was she a did but welcoming signs in the hotel lobby and elevator were negative. Morning breakfast was boring but acceptable. Rooms were clean and beds were comfy. With a little more welcoming... More

Great price, nothing fancy, but the ROAD NOISE ! ! ! And rolling suitcases ! Aye Aye Aye ! ! ! How's a body to get any sleep here??? And the HVAC unit is very noisy. Maybe not a factor in spring or fall, but in winter or summer, forget about sleeping ! ! ! Good luck !

I chose this hotel as an Express Deal on Priceline because it is listed as a 3-star hotel. There is nothing about the hotel that makes it 3-star, though it is a very solid 2.5 star hotel. The hotel was very clean, though unlike previous reviews, the front desk person was not particularly helpful. The breakfast was typical of a... More

The journey home for Christmas this year took me to Gettysburg Inn versus The Gaylord. The hotel is pleasant, the town is quaint and it was an okay experience. Entrance to the rooms is from outside, and after midnight the elevator does not go to the lobby. This gave me the feeling of being trapped; however the night clerk was... More

We had a great stay at the 1863 Inn. Close to all downtown sites, spacious room, very clean, quiet, incredible breakfast. I has stayed there many years ago when it was the Holiday Inn. The newer amenities like the fireplace in the lobby add a nice touch. Only suggestion: consider adding a night light in bathrooms.

My wife, dogs and I have stayed there 3 times. Unfortunately, it was booked solid this year, 11/5-11/8. It is a great hotel, centrally located to the different battle fields, museums, food, shopping etc. The staff takes great care of their two and four-legged guests, with gifts for both upon arrival. Breakfast is great. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate available... More
