This was our second stay at this Quality Inn. We really love the historic feel of this location. The more roadside motel feel. We could look out our motel window and actually see the battlefield. It took two doors to actually enter our room, so a definite feel of security. The pool area - although our timing didn't allow us... More

Great location! Almost too great! In fact, the Gettysburg Historical Foundation has commandeered this property because of its historical significance. If you want to stay there, do so before the end of the year. But buyer beware: the imminent closure of the hotel may have already rubbed off on management’s attitude towards its clientele. We lucked out (sort of) with... More

I was trying to make it from the Poconos to northern VA, but hit several traffic tieups and decided to stop for the night in Gettysburg. I pulled over, checked TripAdvisor, and made the quick drive here. Got an excellent semi-isolated room at a great price, with very helpful check-in staff. I did not use the pool, but it looked...

Check-in staff friendly,helpful and professional. Our room was ready when we arrived early and was spacious and clean with a fridge for drinks etc. Inn was attractive and bright with perfectly good pool, although this was a little too cold and it would have been nice if it opened a little earlier for an early morning wake-up dip! There were... More

Stayed here for 2 nights earlier this month whilst visiting battle site. Excellent location with great views. After a day sight seeing you can relax by the pool then enjoy a meal and beer at the restaurant next door. Sad to hear its closing at the end of the year so visit while you can !

The General Lee Headquarters Quality Inn is the best place to stay in Gettysburg. We have stayed there a few times and always left happy. It is located right next to the battlefield. The place is always kept clean and the staff is very helpful and always cheerful. We were so sorry to hear that they will be closing at... More

This is our second time staying here. We always stay in one of the period houses across the street from the actual hotel. Our suite was spotless! This is the first time that we used the pool since we traveled in the fall during our last stay here. The pool was immaculate! My kids kept saying to me, "mom this... More

Our family of 5 stayed here on a 2 week road trip through the NorthEast. It's a typical road motel. Good value. Friendly & helpful patrons. Breakfast was surprisingly good. Ideal location for touring Gettysburg for 2 days...no big hotels in the immediate vicinity.
