Found it on the Internet and I'm glad I did. I booked directly and got a great price. Spacious extremely clean accommodations with all the perks needed, wireless, coffee in rooms. Very friendly staff. Perfect downtown location. If your going to Gettysburg stay here.

We made yet another trip to Gettysburg and stayed at our favorite place......1863 Inn of Gettysburg. We can not say enough good things about the hotel and the wonderful people who work there. The front desk staff is so friendly and the rooms are neat and clean. We once again requested a room on an upper floor in the front of the building and they accommodated us without a problem. We love the front of the hotel because it allows you to see all that is going on in the town! They have a very nice "express" breakfast in the hotel which has a nice variety. It is a nice way to start your day and it is free! We have stayed at the 1863 Inn of Gettysburg 5 different times and would not even consider staying anywhere else when we visit! Already looking forward to our visit next summer.

We stayed here for just one night and were pleased with our stay. The room and bathroom were more spacious than I expected. Breakfast selection was good. We didn't have a chance to use the pool, but it was a great size! Definitely recommend for a family stay.

We stayed in June, right before the 150th Anniversary, location was perfect for enjoying the gift shops, ghost tours, cemetaries and battlefields. The bathroom was very nice! along with the entire room. The staff was always available and helpful. Hope to make it back here again and have highly recommended it to friends that are planning a trip there next year. We would all go back in a minute!!

Room Tip: We stayed during the week, so the 5th floor on the front was just fine; not noisey at all. Enjoyed...

Another EXCELLENT stay! This is our second year in a row (same room too!) and can't say enough great things about how wonderful everything was. The room was spotless as it was last year. Noticed a new television and bedding which was very nice. This is the perfect place to stay in Gettysburg - close enough to walk to just about anywhere you want to go. Have already placed our name on the list for reservations for Bike Week 2014 - and plan on bringing some friends! Also joined the Loyalty Program - might as well as we plan to make this our "Gettysburg Address" anytime that we stay in the Gettysburg area. Thanks again for being so hospitable to the bikers!

Room Tip: If you like to people-watch, stay in the rooms on the front side of the hotel. You might hear a lit...

I stayed for the 150th Anniversary festivities and this was the perfect location for touring the battlefields and specialty shops. The rooms are clean (all non-smoking) and the staff is friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast got the day off on the right foot. The pool was great for cooling off after a hot day of hiking the battlefields! I will definitely stay here again and would recommend it to everyone who plans on visiting Gettysburg!
