I was booked here as part of a group event, and can't say I would recommend this property unless you, or your children, are into go-carts and mini golf (there is a big facility with both 200 yards from the hotel), and everything in Gettysburg proper is booked (this place is several miles outside of town). The Aspire looks like a Days Inn, and the decor is no better. If you are thinking about staying here be sure to look at reviews of the Eisenhower Conference Center, since this is really just a newer wing of that hotel- you will be swimming in their old indoor pool, and eating at their lackluster restaurant. You also have access to their park shuttle, which is a real bonus. And the grounds have their charms. My daughter particularly liked a marsh in front of the Eisenhower where we saw a snake, frogs, and red winged blackbirds. Overall the Aspire is fairly depressing on the inside. Some might actually prefer the Eisenhower, since it, at least, has some charm.From what I saw the rooms at the Aspire were definitely "nicer" than those in the Eisenhower. They are very spacious, with big comfortable beds, coffee makers, microwaves, and refrigerators. Our room was very clean, although I wouldn't say the same about the hallways, noisy, slow elevators, or lobby.

Thanks for staying with us at the Aspire Gettysburg Hotel and for sharing your comments on TripAdvisor. We appreciate both, but wish we could have exceeded your expectations.
However, we are pleased that you found Aspirer’s rooms to be "very spacious, with big comfortable beds, coffee makers, microwaves, and refrigerators." And we are pleased that you wrote "Our room was very clean". This is great to hear!
The Aspire Gettysburg Hotel is a new hotel in Gettysburg, we opened in late April 2013. We have flat screen TV's, new furniture and offer a complimentary breakfast...none of this is true for Eisenhower guests.
And while we are connected to the Eisenhower and guests may share the indoor pool (which was upgraded in May 2013); Aspire is NOT Eisenhower, but we are very close to the Gettysburg Family Amusement Complex...with Go Karts, Mini Golf, Video Arcade and soon to open...Laser Tag.
Anyway, we appreciate your comments and learn from everyone.
