We visited the battlefields of Gettysburg last weekend, and wanted a place where we could leave the car and explore by foot. The 1863 Inn is perfectly situated in town, close to bars and restaurants for meals, and adjacent to Cemetery Hill. It isn't a fancy hotel, but it was clean and comfortable and has all the basics. Breakfast was... More

We loved our stay here! Location can not be beat, beds are very comfy, bathrooms are spotless and breakfast was very nice. The staff was super friendly and made great suggestions on places to eat and things to see. We've already booked a return visit and joined the preferred "club". Thank you for your hospitality during our stay!

We stayed here one night before our stay at the Farnsworth House Inn. it was a last minute deal and we got a room for $100.00. It was clean, convenient and the staff was extremely friendly. I would definitely stay here again, and not just in a pinch.

I am thankful for and agree with previous reviews that the 1863 is great value for a visit to Gettysburg. My husband and I stayed for 5 nights last week for an off season visit to explore the battlefields. Our room # 555 on the back of the building was quiet, clean and fresh. The paint, linens, furniture, beds, etc.... More

We were there for one night on March 6th. Got it through Priceline.com at $50 a night - can't beat that price. The girl at the reception when we arrived was a bit spacey but she was friendly. We were given a room at the back of the building, on the 4th floor - a bit faraway but it was... More

Once a year I travel to Gettysburg, and this hotel beats the others I have stayed at. Located by the National Park attractions and many food and beverage establishments, I have never been disappointed during any of my stays. Comfortable and quality rooms, and a great staff. I would highly recommend to my family and friends and anyone else looking... More
