“Clean and neat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

This motel was clean and comfortable. Connected to the Eisenhower Complex and that is where the restaurant, exercise room and deli were located, Quite a hike. Swimming Pool was indoors and also located in the Eisenhower. Rooms were large and clean. When asked about the directory for the TV the front desk had to go to the TV in the lobby to find one, also there was no directory in the room for the use of telephone, hours of restaurant, deli, exercise room, pool hours or any of the normal info found in all of the other motels I have stayed in. It was a stopping point for the Boy Scouts (mostly from California} visiting all the areas on the East coast then heading to their jamboree in W Virginia. Then on Wednesday the bikers start arriving for their weekend stay in Gettysburg area (seemed to be a once a year event). Of course it was noisy in town. This Motel is about 6 miles from downtown. I probably would stay in the town area next time I visit the area.

Room Tip: Try the Eisenhower, with a room next to the Pool area.

We stayed here for the150th Anniversary and it was great. After reading some of the reviews I was hesitant to go to this hotel, but because it was the anniversary week there were not many reasonablely priced alternatives. We were impressed with the size of the room, the huge comfortable beds, great price, and cleanliness of the hotel. We had a room on the top floor away from the elevators and it was very quiet. There wasn't a great view out of the window and the decor did seem out of date, but I would not let that discourage a stay here. The pool is a little distance away,but we did not have any problems finding the pool or restaurants located in the other hotel. The pool looked inviting, but the area around the pool needs work. Definitely need a list of resources in the room with map. The deli staff was ver friendly, but the food was just ok. It was convenient to be able to grab food there. Front staff were efficient and friendly.

Location of the hotel was great, especially given the traffic in town for the anniversary. We were able to avoid the traffic and access the highway without having to travel through town. Very close to Maryland and we were able to go to dinner in a small MD town right over the border which enabled us to avoid town for dinner. We did not use shuttle from the hotel because it did not run often enough. There are other hotels closer to battlefield and town,but the hotel is an easy drive to Visitors' Center and battlefield.

We were very relieved after reading some of the other reviews and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

The Aspire is a newer hotel located about 1 mile south of the battlefields in a peaceful farm like setting. Our room was very large and clean. It had 2 extremely comfortable king size pillow top beds, a small fridge, a microwave, and a coffee maker. Staff at the desk were very friendly and professional. My one suggestion is to provide continental breakfast. There is an area in the lobby that would be perfect for this. The adjoining hotel Eisenhower does have a restaurant and deli but they are very expensive and the food was not good.

Dear Julie N,

What a nice review, thanks for posting this on TripAdvisor. And thanks for staying with us at the Aspire Gettysburg Hotel!

I was please to read that you found the Aspire Gettysburg Hotel's "Rooms were spacious, beautiful, clean, comfortable and welcoming." This is absolutely what we are working to achieve!

But my favorite part of your review is this.... "Gettysburg is one of our family's favorite vacation destinations and we will stay nowhere else. Thanks All!"

Now that made my day...THANK YOU!

Just went to the 150th anniversary of Gettysburg. This hotel's location to the National Military Park is fabulous! The air condition worked great. The shower pressure was wonderful after a long day of site seeing. The light music playing in lobby was relaxing. Front desk service was super friendly. Room 335 was very spacious and had everything we needed. However, I am not sure why the the walls and furniture were so worn looking when the front desk told me they have only been open for a few months. Felt like the stocked the hotel with used items. We had one of the worst restaurant experiences of our life at the adjoing restaurant called Richards. The decor looks like left over home interiors. The service and food were horrible. My meal came out way later than everyone else's. Our bill had a $9 dessert on it that we didn't order. I waited 30 minutes after I asked for the check and finally had to get up and get it from the hostess myself. My mom actually got sick later that night from the chicken parmesan she ate there. When I got up to the counter to pay since my waitress was never coming for our check, another man was trying to solve a bill problem too. The restaurant wasn't very crowded at the time, but had some new workers. The food definitley wasn't worth the price. I would recommend staying at the Aspire, but don't eat at Richards.

Room Tip: Room 335 was very spacious and had two king sized beds.

We stayed for two days. When we arrived there was a mix up on our room and the manager, Ryan, held two rooms for us to decide which one we wanted. As all hotels were booked, it was a class act to hold two rooms until we reviewed them. In addition, the staff and manager were friendly and helpful on places to check out. If you go to the hotel restaurant, I would recommend the bourbon pork.

We recently travelled to Gettysburg, PA for the 150th celebration of the Civil War Battle. We originally booked a neighboring motor lodge several months earlier. Upon arrival at the original site, we learned that that hotel had raised its rates and that their pool was closed. Refusing to accept those conditions, we were foced to search for alternate lodging. I had remembered seeing that the Aspire Gettysburg Hotel was located nearby while searching for hotels and decided to stop by in person to see if they had any vacancies despite having seen that it was listed as sold out on a travel site. Upon arrival at the Aspire, I met Mike Mulligan who reassured me that he had an open room. He even agreed to honor the rate that I had found when researching the room weeks ago. He took interest in my family, greeting us each time we passed through the lobby. He even offered us free passes to an adjoining family fun center. The hotel was clean, the rooms were clean and spacious, and the indoor pool was phenomenal. The hotel is located two miles away from the battlefield and keeps you out of the downtown traffic. Te hotel and staff are excellent. We had a great stay. Thank you again, Mr. Mulligan!

Room Tip: The hotel offers dual King bed suites with refrigerator, microwave, and coffeemaker.

Dear Darric B

What a great review of the Aspire Gettysburg Hotel, I can see we helped make your trip to Gettysburg successful! This is wonderful news and I am pleased that we exceeded your expectations.

Your comments about our hotel, its cleanliness, our spacious rooms and our phenomenal indoor pool are wonderful to read. But I must say the comment about our staff member Mike and how he embraced your family needs and welcomed you to our hotel was absolutely the best! So, thanks.

We appreciate the gracious review you posted and for letting the world know that the Aspire Gettysburg Hotel "Saved" your vacation.

Oh, the Laser Tag arena is now open at the Gettysburg Family Amusement Complex...so come back soon
