We checked in when another family was checking in they noted dead bed bugs. Upon inspection of our room we also discovered dead bed bugs. The owner lied to us and gave us a hard time about refunding our money.

I find this review to be quite disturbing since it's not true. Blue Sky has a longstanding commitment to cleanliness. The motel has been around since 1950 and has cultivated a strong reputation as an affordable place with great customer service, and a clean, cozy atmosphere.

I encourage anyone and everyone to come to Blue Sky and check the beds, furniture, bathrooms, etc. to ensure that it meets your standards. As the owner I'm confident that it will. The staff at Blue Sky takes pride in what we do because for us it's not just a business it's a home.

We have stayed here about 5 times in the past 2 years. We always got room #1 so I cant only speak about that one.

It was never dirty....older.....yes....but never dirty at all. Bathroom always clean.

U do have to go outside to get the wifi but it isnt a big deal.

For the price, we have no complaints. The young man that is always working there must be the owner and he was always kind to us.

If you want luxury, then go pay for it. This simple, but clean motel was perfect for a sisters trip to Gettysburg. Our room had a microwave and refrigerator, but otherwise was very basic. I always bring my own soap, so the chicklet size soap just made us laugh. We would stay there again.

The bathroom was moldy and dirty. And the wifi did not work. A Terrible way to treat a paying guest!

About as bare bones as you can get. Room kind of small, shower about the size of a phone booth, lighting pretty scant past the bed area. Not bad if you're planning on being on the battlefield at 6 a.m. and staying around town until late. If you want to avoid the bustle near the battlefield, this isn't bad, but you can stay just as cheap with about the same amenities while actually being in town, close to stuff.

Dont be fooled. Regardless of what you read about this motel, do not stay here. It was smelly, smokey, animal hair on the curtians, huge stains on the carpet, broken bathroom doors, run down, discusting. Certianly not a place that you'd want your family to stay, regardless of the low price. After looking at the rooms, I returned to the front desk and asked to be refunded my money and that I refused to stay here. They wouldnt budge. They said all they could do was move me to a different room. After seeing the filthy room, there was no way I'd consider staying at this motel, no matter what the new room would have looked like. HE said since we already checked in that we couldnt be refunded our money. Think about it, how could we have seen the room if we didn't checked in first??? I'm fighting still fighting to get my money back.
