“Good basic hotel just south of Gettysburg.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

Was here for a conference. The hotel has two buildings and older part and a new one. Rooms 100 to the 300s are in the old building. The new building has 400, 500 and 600. The rooms are basic and comfortable with two king size beds in them. Clean and comfortable.

The meeting spaces were adequate and supported our needs. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Our room was clean and large, but the internet connection is HORRIBLE!!! We've attended the same conference there for four years and even though there are regularly complaints made about the internet service, they never do anything about it. I need to access both work-related email as well as websites for school (I'm a full-time student, too) and I can only seem to connect early in the morning. One night, I was working on homework and had no connection at all!! Thankfully, my assignment was not due until after I got home, but it is quite frustrating.

We booked with the Eisenhower Hotel before the management switch. When we found out we were going to be working with Joe, a very experienced wedding coordinator, we were so excited. Our event was fantastic. The food was amazing, the service was efficient, and everyone was so nice. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and it was so nice to be able to get to rooms easily from the ballroom.
For the price, you can't beat this hotel. It took us about 5 minutes to get to downtown Gettysburg.
I highly recommend the Eisenhower for anything, but especially large events - they will cater to your every need!

We attended the Rebok/Angotti wedding at the Eisenhower Hotel & Conference Center on 03/23/2013. We were very impressed with how the wedding was handled in a most professional way. The setting was beautiful. Joe, the wedding planner, had everything running very smoothly. Everything seemed to flow from one segment to the next without any delay. The wedding appeared to be very well organized. What a beautiful event it was. The food was outstanding! It was really nice to have everything at one location. We would highly recommend the Eisenhower Hotel & Conference Center for anyone planning an important event in the future. Harold & Mary Lou Jones

I recently attended a wedding at the Eisenhower Hotel and Conference Center. Even though I dutifully visited Gettysburg every summer throughout my childhood and young adult years, I had never been to this scenic site. The setting is quiet and peaceful, and only a short driving distance from downtown Gettysburg through the battlefield (about 10 minutes). Upon entering the hotel, I was taken back to another time when hotels were more about an experience and not just a place to sleep. As other reviews have mentioned, it is an older building. However, I did not see this as an negative point, but rather as quite the opposite! The entry way was beautiful, clean, and grand. The front desk staff was courteous and accommodating. My room was spacious and clean, and the bed was comfortable. The room had a balcony which overlooked an indoor courtyard, complete with a tiki bar, tables and chairs, and an indoor pool. The bathroom was clean and the shower pressure was great! The ballroom was elegant, and the wait staff was courteous and efficient. The food was also very tasty!!! After the wedding reception, the after party continued in the hotel's lounge. The event staff directing the evening were extremely attentive. I thoroughly enjoyed my entire experience at this hotel, and would recommend it for an overnight stay or for an elegant party/reception!

We have hosted two reunions at this hotel.

The other reviews you read are right, the hotel is old and dated. The staff and location however has made this the perfect locations for both of our events. In each case the staff went well beyond what other hotels were willing to offer in services and value.

If you are able to secure the newer Eisenhower II for your room block, this is a great hotel for the cost.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room in the newer Eisenhower II

If ever I needed a place to stay, I would come here. The staff bends over backwards for you for the smallest thing. Room service and housekeeping are on the ball ever day! It's quiet and just far enough to be out of the way but just close enough to be close to everything. The beds are amazingly comfortable and without fail the room is immaculate. I would throughly recommend this hotel to anyone for a single night or for multiple!
