Went to Gettysburg for an overnight visit and just needed a place to rest our heads. Free breakfast was a nice extra. Room was comfortable but average. There was a funny smell in the stairwell by the ice machine, assume it was that, so we didn't get ice from it. Check-in was fast and employees seemed nice. I would recommend this place if you are not going to spend a lot of time at the hotel, and just need a bed.

Thank you for reviewing our hotel. I will look into any odors in the hall as we would not want this to continue. I am pleased you were satisfied with your lodging choice.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

I do not like leaving poor feedback, but I want to prevent anyone with children from making the same mistake we did with this hotel. The front desk people were kind, that is about all I can say good. We walked in and the beds were half made and were in VERY poor shape. You could see the wrinkles in the sheets and pillow cases which were a dingy white. The rooms are very old, furniture is old and dusty and the odor was bad enough, we went to the nearby Wal-mart to get febreeze. We should have turned around and walked out, but I had a very grumpy 3 and 7 year old that had had it from a long day of driving. The sink did not drain, the floor above squeaked all night, it was just awful. The bathroom in the morning smelled like a smoker was in the room with us and it was just disgusting. It is dark, dingy and dirty, I am sorry but it is. I would NOT recommend this hotel unless you really do not care about cleanliness and are a avid smoker with no children.

Room Tip: There are plenty of other hotels in in the area.

Thank you for your review. I apologize that the hotel was not up to your or our standards, it is not typical for our guests to have such an unpleasant stay.
We are looking into converting to a smoke-free hotel early 2014. I have spoken with our housekeepers to ensure they are completing all tasks and the rooms are not left in the shape that yours may have been. If you would like to discuss your stay with me in more detail please feel free to contact me directly at 717-337-1400.
Thank you.
