“Wonderful, Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

My daughter and I were guests of the Federal Pointe Inn in Gettysburg last week, and wow! What a deal and what a destination. We liked that it was a little out of the hustle bustle of beautiful downtown historic Gettysburg. The renovation was amazing and the room, gorgeous. High ceilings, comfy beds, beautiful double glazed windows looking out over the Point(e!), and what a bathroom. Vicky, who checked us in, even helped us carry our luggage upstairs. We'd stay again in a heartbeat. And it's a short drive to the Inn at Herr Ridge for dinner - fabulous!

Great stay, huge room, friendly front desk and VERY clean. Not on the main square of the historic downtown, but within walking distance. It is on a busy road at the fork between one busy one and one quiet one. No bother to us, though. Easy to get to just as we entered town. We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel and would stay here again. There's no restaurant or breakfast offered, but there's a place just next door for a typical diner breakfast. We ate dinner at a little Mexican place across the street. It's a grocery store, with a restaurant in back. Worth a visit. Food was excellent and cheap.

Room Tip: try the diner next door and the Mexican place across the street.

Great place to stay with easy access to centre, large car park, excellent diner across car park for breakfast. This was a school- an elegant building reminscent of a civic building. Immaculate rooms with large beds. Very good value. Spent two nights here while visiting the battlefield. Very helpful staff.

We checked into the Federal Pointe Inn on a Saturday and stayed one night. The room was spacious and exceedingly clean. The bed was comfortable and while our room was on the second floor, we didn't notice a lot of noise, though I run a white noise app when we travel to avoid hearing noises like people moving around in halls and cars outside. The location of the Inn puts you just a short walk into town which is nice. The Inn has little things that make this place special such as in-room Keurig machines, in-room mini fridge with freezer, scones set out for guests in the afternoon and art throughout the corridors that is gorgeous. We both travel a lot for work and fun, and I rarely come across a place that is unique enough to make me want to get online as soon as possible to sing its praises. This place is special.

We stayed in room 207 last night. The property is beautiful. Linda toured us upstairs and the basement, which has two fireplaces just recently discovered. I really like this place; especially our room.

If we stayed here again, we would definately request a third floor room due to the noise. When the guests just above room 207 use the bathroom, a "major swish noise" shoots straight down through the wall at the headboard of the bed. This was a very loud noise and went on throughout the night. When this was renovated, soundproofing should have been wrapped around the down drain pipes. Also, no coffee in the hallway; only green tea bags both days. I thought that was odd to have a Keurig coffeemaker and no coffee. Otherwise, this place is definately a place to stay. The bugs will be worked out in time, I'm sure.

Room Tip: Ask for a third floor room for a more quiet experience.

My husband and I recently spent a weekend at the Federal Pointe Inn for our anniversary. The Inn was lovely and charming! Our room was very comfortable and beautifully appointed. We enjoyed the Keurig coffee and tea in our room and in the hallway lounge. The lounge area was a wonderful place to relax and peruse books for guests and to admire the authentic Civil War paintings. All of the staff at the Inn were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed breakfast at the cozy restaurant just behind the Inn. The historic district of Gettysburg with quaint shops and restaurants is just a short walk away. There are so many things to do in and around Gettysburg and the Federal Pointe is ideally and conveniently located. We look forward to our return visit!

This is a unique experience in fabulous environment! My husband and I stayed at the Inn for three nights in October of this year. The Inn has only been open for three months so there were a couple of very minor issues that I am sure will resolved very soon. There are just 18 rooms in the Inn so it never has a feeling of a hotel. Our room was a very large corner room with a comfortable king bed. It was beautifully and appropriately decorated. The bathroom had both a tub and a shower and was quite large and well appointed with luxury soaps, shampoos etc. There was a small refrigerator and coffee maker in the room. If I remember correctly, there was coffee but no tea. We drink tea and since lots of places that have coffee makers have coffee but no tea, we carry our own so it is never an issue with us. There is no food service at the Inn but there is a handy cafe just across the parking lot and lots of places to eat in the town of Gettysburg and its surrounding areas. The couple of little things I brought to the attention of the receptionist were: 1) the large lovely desk in the corner of the room had a large lamp on it but there was no electrical outlet within reach of the desk so that corner did not have enough light to make the desk useful. 2) the room had only one outlet that was available for charging electronics unless you unplugged the coffee maker which gives a second outlet. We carry a power strip so we could make this work but I suggested that with everyone carrying cell phones, computers or ipads, cameras etc., it would be good to address this issue in the rooms. 3) we had no luggage racks the first night and only one the second and third nights. As most rooms are filled with two or more visitors I suggested that have two luggage rack per room would be reasonable. We were very careful covering the desk with towels on the desk for one suitcase but I would have been more comfortable with luggage racks. As I said these issues were very minor but I would hope that the Inn would address these as it would enhance visitors' stays. The staff was very helpful in assisting us with reservations and how, where and what to do and see. Our visit was mid October and if you plan to be in Gettysburg on a weekend in the fall you must make restaurant reservations at least a couple of days before arriving. Everything was booked when we arrived but Colleen did get us in Dobbin House the second night and it was wonderful. Staying in the school, now the Inn, was a special experience. The owner has contracted with an archivist and is going to be doing more to bring the school's history into the experience of staying in the Inn. That said, there are a few pictures in the downstairs common area of classes from way back that are not to be missed. I also want to point out that there are some issues regarding accessibility. Parking is close to the entrance and easy. There is a nice ramp up to the front door but there is no elevator so if stairs are an issue be sure to book on the first floor. Also the stairs to the second floor are more than the average number of steps and the ceilings on the first floor are very high. You pretty much have to do your own luggage so if that is an issue just be sure you are on the first floor. We managed the second floor just fine but I am writing this so if this is an issue for you, you can plan for it. We enjoyed our stay at the Inn and think that staying there added a wonderful plus to our fabulous experience in Gettysburg. If going to Gettysburg definitely plan a stay at the Federal Pointe Inn.

Room Tip: The upstairs corner rooms are lovely and well worth the little extra to stay in one of there rooms.
