Great stay. Nice room. Hospitable staff. Very nice breakfast. And close to everything! My second stay there and I would do it again. If you are planning a stay in Gettysburg you should definitely look at this place.

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

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay. We are glad that your room was clean and comfortable. We do apologize for the odor.

We stayed at the Inn as part of our volunteer service vacation in Gettysburg. The location is perfect. It is right within walking distance of many historic places, restaurants, attractions, etc. The breakfast is more than adequate and quite diverse. The accommodations were clean and well kept. It is an older hotel, but not shabby as some tend to become.... More

The room was spacious and very neat and clean. We had a large bathroom with a shower and excellent Jacuzzi tub. Also in the room were amenities like a small frig, an iron and board, a microwave, a writing desk, and even extra blankets! Thanks a ton!!!

Stayed here twice. Very clean, friendly and great location. Last time I gave a 3 star review because there Free breakfast had microwaved ore made omelets. They learned from this and now have fresh scrambled eggs! Now that makes the 1863 the best stay for your money in Gettysburg. This is a great clean friendly place to stay.
