“Average hotel experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

We arrived at the hotel and found it to be quite average, no real *wow* factor. The staff is very helpful and friendly and check-in was fast. We requested adjoining rooms and our first two rooms the door lock in between the rooms was broken so we were assigned another set of rooms which worked fine. The elevator closest to the front desk also would not work a few times we tried to use it. The pool is on the small side (15 person capacity) and the hot tub is literally the smallest I've ever seen at a hotel. My tub at home is larger. The hotel is clean, the breakfast was fine. We had just returned from a stay in Jekyll Island GA at the Hampton Inn there and so had such high expectations. The Jekyll Hampton Inn is beautiful, filled with little extra amenities, and cost the same amount as the Gettysburg Hampton Inn. It was a bit disappointing value wise.

This hotel is a good example of how a "cheaper" chain hotel can offer high quality service, amenities and cleanliness. The rooms are nicely appointed, very comfortable beds and pillows and everything was spotless and clean.
The price was high for a Hampton even with a AAA discount, but this was in Gettysburg at the height of the tourist season, but the efficiency and friendliness of the staff and the comfort made it worth it.
If you are a tourist,you can access all the sites around Gettysburg very easily. Shops are close by for basic needs with your basic chain food places across the
street.
The front of the hotel is right on an intersection so if you like quiet choose a room facing the back of the hotel. Be prepared to haul your bags through the hotel since, for some reason, the parking is at the back of the hotel.
I recommend this as a good place to stay in this area

I have stayed in several places in Gettysburg. This is one of the nicer ones. Rooms were clean and neet. The staff was great! Right off Route 15. If you do not want to deal with the traffic in town this is a great place to stay, close to all the attractions,

I have stayed at Hampton Inns many times. The rooms at this location were larger and decorated in a more modern and pleasing manner. Plenty of room to move around. A nice desk area with wardrobe, draw down blinds. Microwave/sink/reefer area, a large bathroom. The check-in process was without problem.

The included breakfast was good and plentiful, although the seating area was small. The exercise room could use some small weights.

We will definitely book here again.

We only got to spend one night at the Hampton Inn Gettysburg, as this was a last second, spontaneous trip to see Gettysburg National Park. Upon arriving, the staff was friendly and the hotel was clean with plenty of parking. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable.

In the morning, a free breakfast was available, which was a nice bonus that we weren't even aware of as we booked this from the car while driving there. We'd definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in Gettysburg. There may be some cheaper options out there, but from passing them on the road, they looked a bit undesirable, so it's worth it to pay the extra for this hotel.

When possible we stay at Hampton Inns because of the comfortable beds, well appointed rooms and friendly staff. However, we were very disappointed with this Hampton Inn. I need to add we are members of Hilton Honors that allows us to have on file our room preferences in their reservation system. All times prior to this stay our preferences have been fulfilled. Our preference is simple, a quiet room away from the elevator and road traffic. Not an unreasonable request. Reservations for this stay was made a week in advance. We checked in by 3:00. At check-in the friendly hostess said if we are not completely satisfied with our room to let her know. I said as long as it is a quiet room we will be satisfied. We were put in room 300, end unit but facing the very busy Route 30--the 4 lane main road leading to downtown Gettysburg. The Inn is on the corner of a 4 way intersection, so we got to hear all the traffic stop and take off. As soon as we realized this, we called the front desk and expressed our dissatisfaction. Nothing could be done because the hotel was full. It is a Saturday night, there was basketball and baseball tournaments going on plus Gettysburg is a popular tourist stop. We had no choice to change rooms or hotels. As a consolation, $13.00 was deducted from the bill....give me a break. I would not recommend this specific HI if you want a good night's sleep due to all the road noise. Just down the road less than 1/4 of a mile on the left, set way back from the 4 lane road is a Hilton Garden Inn. I would recommend staying there instead of this Hampton Inn.

Room Tip: Unable to give a tip because the hotel won't honor your preference.
