I picked this hotel as I liked where it was in Gettysburg. Location wise it was a good choice. There's a good few restaurtants and places to get a drink nearby. There's also plenty of tourist shops and a garage opposite to buy water etc. The staff were very friendly and there's a buffet breakfast - I only popped in... More

We stayed at 1863 Inn during our first trip to Gettysburg in July. It also coincided with the 149th anniversary of the battle. The room was comfortable for a family of four, with large a bathroom which was really handy. The swimming pool was wonderful, especially if you want to cool off after a days sightseeing. Plenty of parking space... More

We primarily selected this hotel because of it's proximity to both the Gettysburg Battlefield and the town itself and were not disappointed. Given the downtown location the large car park was welcome. The hotel itself is a little tired and in need of some upgrading. However, the front desk service was friendly, helpful and efficient, and our room was comfortable... More
