Just back from another stay in Gettysburg. I have stayed at this hotel many times throughout the years. It is always satisfactory. The room is clean and has a fridge. You are welcomed in your room with a little bag of treats and water. In the past when they knew I was bringing my dog they have even left a... More

First, we picked this hotel because it was central to all the locations we wanted to visit during this weekend. Then the re-enactment was postponed due to heavy rain. We came anyway. We were not disappointed. With the town full to capacity with tourists, the townspeople still dressed up and put on performances on almost every street corner. Very neat.... More

If you are use to a chain hotel, I suggest staying here. We were able to check in early. It was awesome considering we wanted to walk around, we had chocolate in the car, and wanted to enjoy Gettysburg. We had a choice if we wanted front or back of hotel. We chose the front since we were just there... More

The 1863 Inn is not a five star hotel, but our experience was. The room was comfortable, though the beds were a bit small. Breakfast was good value. Pool was cold, but good to lounge around after a long hot day exploring the battleground. But the reason to book this hotel is the great location, right on the north slope... More

Certainly well located at the corner of Baltimore St & US 15. Easy walking distance to all of the downtown restaurants. But, across the street there are ghost walking tours. They say that George the ghost lives in this hotel and makes noise at night. Can't speak about the ghost, but yes there are noises. Lots of them: street, air... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. You are correct-the 1863 Inn was a Holiday Inn. We decided to drop the franchise and go independent in 2009. It was the best decision we ever made. The only real negative that I can see noted in your review is the noise from the street-which we can't control-and that... More

This hotel is located right next to the park, so quick trips back to the room for whatever is a matter of finding your way out of the park without driving the prescribed routes, use the maps. The park is SHORT on bathrooms and water. As for the room, has the microwave & refrigerator and a king bed as described,... More
