I just confirmed that this property will be closing in Dec 2014 but until then I hope they maintain the fine standards I found during my two night stay in June. Our room was clean and comfy and quiet. The breakfast was the usual thing found at most Quality Inns and did the job. Two unexpected highlights were the Appalachian... More

The rooms are a little dated.. but the staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and the breakfast is decent considering its included in your stay. They had fruits, eggs, cold cereal, make your own waffles, biscuits, bacon and sausage patties. The hotel is one level so you don't have to worry about hearing noise from above or below. It's...

Location is great, but this hotel won't be around for long as the land has been brought by the preservation society of Gettysburg and they intend to return the site to its original state. The museum will stay but everything else will be redeveloped and knocked down. The rooms are a little dated but otherwise clean and tidy.

Located adjacent to Appalachian Brewing Company rub/restaurant and walking distance to the Irish Pub and Blue and Grey bar downtown, perfect locale for touring the battlefield during the day and getting good food at night. We spent two nights here - clean rooms, friendly staff, and a short drive from the National Cemetery and the battlefield sights. Would stay here... More

We have stayed here many times over the years and always enjoyed it. Our rooms have always been very clean and fresh. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast area is well stocked and has many choices. The pool is sparkling clean. I was very sorry to read today that this Quality Inn will be closing permanently in Dec.... More

After reading amazing reviews online (I did not see one bad one), my boyfriend and I decided to book this hotel for July 4th weekend. We figured for the good price we could forgo having a microwave and fridge for a few days. We arrived at the hotel about an hour before the check in time to see if we... More

This hotel has been "my" hotel in Gettysburg and it is where I stay every time I come to visit. It is perfectly located, the staff is knowledgeable and friendly, and I love the free breakfast area, which overlooks the battlefield. I always seem to get room 139, which has a back window to look out and is large and... More

First impression upon check in- "This is going to be great". It was! A wonderful old style motel, single story so no overhead noises. Love being able to park right outside the room. Rooms are a bit smaller than the new box type motels, but they are just fine. and clean! The pool looked lovely and clean, it was well... More

Quiet, clean with close proximity to battlefield and all attractions. Gift shop and restaurant were also excellent. Staff at each venue was great and very helpful. Breakfast was very good. Will certainly be back.

My sister and I come to General Lee's every spring for a sister's getaway. The property is quaint and that is exactly what we like. The grounds and rooms are immaculate. The proximity to the battlefield is a plus. The on- site restaurant, The Appalachian Brewing company is always good. The Larson's seem to always updating and adding to make... More
