“Great Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2010

Just a few blocks from downtown Gettysburg, this was a perfect location. Down the street from Walmart, Home Depot, etc in one direction and historical Gettysburg in the other. Free internet, clean room. Quiet. Just what we needed.

Stayed October 2010, traveled as a couple

Don't even try this place!

We were in Gettysburg on OCT. 2, 2010, since the apple festival all the hotels and motels were full, so we planed on driving to next town- new oxford to find a hotel ( also maybe cheaper), while we drive on York rd. My husband saw this motel, and found out they have a double queen sized room for 2 adults and a kid($109/ night), since we had to be at visitor center for the battle field bus tour next morning at AM9:15 , so we decided to stay here, and save sometime for us in the next Morning, even though the price is so expensive for this hotel.

In the lobby, my 2 year old( active boy!) turned on the 2 A/Cs (set on HOT), the heating units burned the dusts and the lobby soon smells terrible!

the room is spacious, though the carpet, the towels, curtains are all very low quality materials. When i open curtain I soon realize that the swimming pool is right outside of our window. No fridge, no microwave, very plain decor.

The pillows smell sweaty and dusty, the worst, next Morning there are little red spots over 10 of them on my neck and chest. Today, OCT. 4, 2010 the spots are all swollen to thumb nail size and very very itch! I don't know what are they !!!

The breakfast was a JOKE! Tiny sugar coated donuts, milk, coffee, no ice water!! We can get cold water in the lobby fountain drink machine! little hot water couldn't catch up the customers need, had asked several time. No any fruits, yogurts! It's so obvious that they don't think the customers first!!! The hotel was full (parking lots were full), but there are only 5,6 packs of instant oatmeal available. When i asked the Indian lady(owner?) said they have no more!!

This was our 12th day on the road, from Houston drove up to this place, this place is surprisingly dirty, inconsiderable and uncomfortable!!! I had terrible experience and still being bothered by the bug bite on my neck/ chest (check the pics !). Luckily my 2 year son didn't get bit, otherwise I would feel more anger.

We had rode up to Gettysburg to do some site seeing and intended on staying the night. We had not booked a room any where, figuring we would find a hotel along the way. After we went through the battlefields and on through the town, we saw the sign for the Motel 6. We got a very nice large and clean room. The manager let us park the motorcycle right outside our bedroom window! The manager and his wife were very friendly and most accommodating. They had an indoor pool and spa that were again, very clean and quiet, so we were able to enjoy them for a long while. The bed was comfortable and we were able to get a good nights sleep before starting our ride the next morning. They had fresh, hot coffee made the next morning that we enjoyed several cups of. The next time we want to stay in Gettysburg PA, we will be going back to the Motel 6 Presidents Inn!

Attended a concert nearby and stayed overnight. Hotel staff were friendly. Hotel was clean and cool (great AC on a very hot day). Large room with couch and sitting area. No frills but didn't expect any. Coffee and donuts / cold cereal with milk for breakfast. Conveniently located and inexpensive are its greatest assets.

Planned on spending just on night in Gettysburg on the way to Washington DC. Gettysburg itself is great, and the strength of the hote rates in the area show there's a real lock on the tourists. The Motel 6 here seemed like a good option from the reviews, so we booked accordingly. One of the big draws since we were traveling with children was their pool which they touted on their website. Upon checking, we were notified that the pool was closed. The room was okay. Clean. The lobby needed some work. Coffee was from an old dispenser. Yuck. No thanks. I wouldn't stay here again if in Gettysburg.

The hotel room was very unsanitary. I am not sure if the other other comments were at a different hotel or from the owner The worst began when we asked to check in early and they said yes but when we showed up they would not let us check in for another 2 hours. The woman owner was unapologetic and rude. Once we checked in they switched rooms on us. The room smelled of urine! There were stains on the carpet. I did not dare let my children walk barefoot around the room. There were dog pee stains on the wall and on the bed mattress. There was mold growing around the bathtub. We asked to check out 1 hour later to do a tour and the woman wanted to charge me $10 an hour telling me it was policy to charge for later checkout, (I have never had this happen or even heard of this.) They were nice to offer a break but it was an insult, they should have not had one at all, they would have looked better. They offered mini donuts and white bread, Seriously this is it. nothing else. The woman is nont friendly. It is deceiving, it looks like it will be nice from the clean lobby and being brand new but the rooms are DISGUSTINGLY DIRTY! Management needs to not be so cheap and understand you need to please your guests. For your health stay away!
