We stayed one night at this motel in July, 2011 while sightseeing in Gettysburg. As history buffs, we were very excited that this hotel used to be the actual headquarter's of General Lee. They have a small museum on the premises next to the gift shop that is dedicated to General Lee and it is very charming. The rooms are... More

We have made many trips to this property with other couples. The location is great and you can park right outside of your door. There is a restaurant and pub right on the property and the battlefield is on the other side of the street. There is a small breakfast area with cereals, juice, hot drinks and toast , muffins,...

The motel is right on what was a major portion of the battle field. This is a one story traditional motel design that has been tastefully upgraded and is well maintained. Nice big pool is provided and the wireless intenet was easily accessibly with a minimum of log on procedures. The motel is on the west edge of town which... More

Stayed overnight during a road trip. Friendly welcome by gentleman on front desk and gave us all the information we needed for local attractions etc. It was cloudy but couldnt resist a dip in the pool - nice to be able to sit outside and admire the views of the battlefields and watch the Harleys pass by. Rooms were laid... More

Our 4th night in Gettysburg brought us here. The room was spacious and had most of the necessities but no microwave or refrigerator (you can rent a refrigerator). The Inn is laid out nicely...sprawling and parking spaces are right near your room so you can keep an eye on your vehicle. The pool is great and warm with fun water... More

We had a queen suite, it was located in the back of the hotel, which was great. In the suite was a microwave, coffee maker, fridge, iron and ironing board. What was missing was a small table to sit and eat at, there were 2 chairs, but no table. The bed was extremely comfortable, but the pillows were half size.... More

I can't express how pleased my family and I were with the Quality Inn! It was because they were so very helpful in every way, and took care of all requests with such professionalism, that our stay there was so enjoyable. General Lee's HQ is a few feet away from the hotel, and yes we had free admission; although small,... More

Ths suite has two floors and includes a kitchen (stove, micro, fridge, toaster ...), a whirlpool tub for two and a balconey.

We arrived early at Quality Inn for check-in so we went over to General Lee's Headquarters Museum. Even though General Lee's stay was brief it gave you insight as to what the officers wore, how they lived and history of the battle. There is a small gift shop attached to the house. The woman that assisted us with our room... More
