“Dated but clean”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

The room was clean ( did have a stale odor), but definitely needed updating!
If you're expecting a pool, don't stay here! The pool is being filled in with gravel. We were told that PA has changed the laws for public pools, and it would be too costly to meet all of the disabilities requirements
The staff was friendly, and the breakfast was adequate.
For the price, I'd stay there again. We weren't there very long, and it did meet our needs.

Room Tip: Try to get a room in the newer section!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We arrived at the Inn on the night of May 17. Our reservation went well until we went to the room. A smoker had been the previous occupant. Neither my wife or myself are smokers, plus I have heart & breathing problem. We informed the desk. To our surprise, the owner showed about an hour later. We discussed the problem with him and he refunded our money. He said it was a staff problem and he would take care of it. They worked some magic and removed the odor. We were very pleased with the care and attention they gave. It was first class.

Room Tip: Non-smokers advise them before hand that it needs to be a non-smoking room and why.

Entire facility was dated, but clean and comfortable. Very, very nice staff. Restaurant/bar on site and plenty of food and shop within walking distance. Was only there for 10 hours. Fit my overnight needs well.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

The first room I was given was sub-par, but the second was okay. The rooms need renovation - badly - but the motel overall isn't bad. The staff is super friendly. There's a bar/nightclub on site and a pool with a deck that seems like a nice place to chill on a summer afternoon. There was a fireplace in the lobby, which was nice for this time of year*.

The owner's a local, having graduated from New Oxford or one of Hanover's other satellite towns back in the 1980s. You can tell he's putting his sweat into the place. When I was here he was working on renovating the bar. I look forward to staying here again in the future and seeing progress being made on the rooms.

The location of this hotel is pretty sweet. Local walkable shopping includes Kleffels (an all-time-favorite local clothing store with great American brands) as well as Dicks, Sears, JCPenney, Tractor Supply Co., and the shops of North Hanover Mall. Plus, it's on the RabbitTransit 20N and 22N bus routes, which you can take to even more nearby shopping opportunities at the other North Hanover shopping plazas and even Hanover's historic downtown - Hanover Square.

I found this property on a dog-friendly hotel finder and found it to indeed be dog friendly.

*This review refers to winter holiday travel 2013.

Room Tip: Look at more than one room before accepting the key to whichever room they give you.

This place is very rundown throughout. While the staff is friendly, there were many problems:
Entry lock to our room was broken for 3 days
Fan in shower did not work
Water temp in shower and sink hard to control, could not get warm water at sink most of the time
Carpet was dirty
Broken ceiling tile in breakfast room leaked when raining
Breakfast muffins were stale, and there was no fruit
AC was so loud in our room, we could not hear TV when it was running

I stayed here many times and never had any problems. The place isnt new. Its a older hotel with a new owner and he is fixing it up nicely. The place is clean, the staff is very friendly and the hotel has more to offer then just a bed. A restaurant, outside pool, outside bar, Inside they have a game room, Room service, and much more. Many shops and restaurants in the area. if you want to stay at a hotel that holds charm and personality then this is it. If you have to have brand new everything and stuck up staff then its not for you. Im a down to earth person and i love this place.

Room Tip: try A Taste Of Bourbon you will love it

This place is a dive! We had reservations for a king room and they even tried to run our credit card 2 weeks before we arrived. Now we know why: the room was filthy and stale; new locks placed over existing old locks on doors making credit card swipe mechanism difficult. broken back on vanity chair and centipedes crawling on bathroom floor. air conditioner close to completely broken -- clattered and sputtered; ceiling tiles stained and sagging. Ice room was dark; unlighted, dirty and guess what -- no ice! All hotels in area upped prices for Gettysburg 150th anniversary but this one was definitely not worth more than $25/night. We stayed only one night - couldn't get out soon enough.
