“Close to Battlefield and Pet-Friendly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Those are two reasons I chose this hotel, the Eisenhower...it's very close to the Battlefield and is pet-friendly.

Stayed here July 1-3 in 2012 and again this year (2014), same dates. Hotel was VERY quite during our stay but business was picking up the day before we checked out, probably because a weekend was coming up with re-enactments, etc at the Battlefield.

Anyway, we were in Aspire this time and were pleasantly surprised that we had TWO King beds, and a microwave and fridge in the room. Being a "pet" room, there's always a chance of odors, but there weren't any. Room seemed pretty clean and beds/pillows were comfy.

I wish the fridge was a little bigger; when you stay 2-3 nights, you have leftovers (at least we did) and didn't have much room to keep our water, juice and food. Otherwise, the room was fine. Nothing fancy, but served the purpose.

The only thing I didn't like about this hotel was the fact that there is NO complimentary breakfast of any kind...not even fruit or cereal or coffee in the lobby. The restaurant had weird hours and the "deli" was expensive. Sure there is a small coffee pot in the room, but the coffee is lousy. Definitely need a breakfast area even just offering muffins and donuts or something.

Would stay here again though, since there didn't seem to be many pet-friendly options around.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

My friends and I attended a "concert/dance" in the ballroom during Bike Week. The band was good, the drinks were VERY small and VERY expensive. ($8 for a 10 oz plastic cup filled with ice, coke and a little bit of Captain Morgan.) The dance floor was nice and large. There was food advertised which turned out to be pre-made sandwiches and cheese plates that were just ok to absorb the alcohol. We had fun considering the fact that it was a free event. I would not want to plan a wedding or high end function here. It's a very old (not historically old, just old) building.

Room Tip: We didn't stay the night.

Hello SUZANNAH S,

Thank you for your feedback.

It's disappointing to read that you were less than impressed with the event. Our staff members work very hard with guests and organizers to make sure that we provide the best service possible.

Thanks again for your review. We look forward to seeing you again at Bike Week 2015.

2 king size beds, couch, flat screen, kitchenette! Was a tad dated but very clean and nice. Pool area was huge. Only 4 miles to everything. They even matched trip advisors rate. ( I couldn't book online) we wish we could stay here longer.

Only a few miles from Gettysburg, perfect place to stop. The Eisenhower building front office staff was actually in the Aspire when we got there (9pm at night). We had a coupon from the Travel books from the information center. The grounds were well lit, , the buildings you could tell when they were built, but the Eisenhower was charming in it's own right.. The Eisenhower is the pet friendly one, the aspire is not. They don't say on the coupon or from the staff that there is a $25 extra pet fee, found that out on the receipt. No designated pet relief area, just "away from the doors" was all was said. But all in all, a good shower, a good night's sleep and a good deal.

Room Tip: All rooms were decent locations.

We were here for a baseball tournament. The hotel suited it's purpose for one night. The boys had a great time in the pool was a very nice set up. They had balconies overlooking the pool which was in the center of the hotel. The pool had a retractable roof but it was very warm and loud in that area with the kids playing. Overall nice pool set up. Rooms itself were mediocre and need updating. My sheet had what looked tone a mascara stain on it. Elizabeth at the front desk was fantastic. She worked hard to try to meet everyone's expectations. It was fine for a night so the boys could play and swim after their games, but I would not want to stay here at longer.

I walked in the hotel and thought I was on the scene of the movie "The Shining." The employees looked very sketchy and did not welcome us very well. When we walked into the room and the stench was unbarebale. It was very unconfortable to sleep in there the whole night. Do not waste your time staying here!

This place is in the middle of no where. You have to drive at least 12 minutes to get to town. The building is old, which some may find quaint, and needs fresh paint. Old TV and furnishings. Good for family groups who are looking for no frills and don't want to worry about their kids wrecking the place.

Hello A R,

It is disappointing to read that you were less than impressed with our location and accommodations.

We are about one mile from the Gettysburg National Military Park and two miles from the Eisenhower National Historic Site. We are about five miles from the town of Gettysburg and about two miles away from US Route 15. Freedom Transit stops at our hotel and connects guests and visitors to downtown Gettysburg as well as many other wonderful locations in our area.

Thanks for your review. We hope that in the future you will give us the opportunity to regain your confidence and have you as our guest again.
