We wanted to tour Gettysburg, but the hotels in town seemed old and dingy. This hotel appeared to offer the most modern accommodations available.
Indeed, the room was clean and comfortable, and the location was great for getting in and out of town. Plenty of free parking, and friendly hotel staff.
Bonus: Free breakfast down in the lobby each morning - not the greatest, but good enough to start the day. (Bagels, muffins – you can even a make your own waffles!) Check out the excellent Perkins down the street if you desire a more proper meal.
Negatives: “new carpet smell.” Hard to describe, but there was this ever-present scent of new carpet or new paint in the room. Didn't really care for it, and it made us wish it were possible to open the windows. The only ventilation option in the room is an old wall unit air conditioner. Also, there was no programmable safe in the room. I feel a little more secure when a safe is available in which to temporarily store valuables while I'm away from the room. So many hotels have them nowadays, I was surprised when this one didn't.
