We booked this room because it was in town at an acceptable price with a bonus sitting area. There are only a few hotels in the center city area. Our room was ready at the time promised and the reception lady walked us up to the room telling the history of the hotel which was once a school. Very charming - and so was the room! We were surprised when we opened the door. The room was a perfect blend of old style (12' ceilings and large windows etc.) with new (bedding, tvs, and an updated and modern, spacious bathroom) that really set the mood for a Gettysburg stay. Very pretty. The tall ceilings made the room seem larger. Our room was clean and bed and bedding were comfortable. We checked for bed bugs, as per normal. They had a big mini-fridge as well as tvs in both the sleeping area and sitting area. Parking was free. It was a few blocks walk to many restaurants and other places in town. We ate dinner at the Italian restaurant 1 1/2 blocks towards town on the left. It was a good experience for our family. Some of the touristy locations are further south from the hotel so bring walking shoes. No breakfast at the hotel but there is a restaurant next door. We choose to bring our own breakfast which was fine with us because we wanted a good start at the Military Park. We had a room on the 3rd floor and didn't hear a thing during our stay save a few motorcycles in the night which was probably heard all over town. We drove in that day, stayed the night and left late the next afternoon. We wished we'd stayed two nights to get a full Gettysburg experience and overall we were glad we chose this hotel.
