“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

My family and I stayed here on our first trip to Gettysburg. The location is fantastic. We loved being able to walk from the hotel to downtown shopping and dining and through the cemetery. My husband and son got an early morning run in through the battlefield and monuments.

We had an upstairs room with a balcony. The room was comfortable. A/C was noisy but that's fairly common in hotels. Breakfast is included in the room rate - standard continental breakfast. All of the staff was very helpful and informative about where to go and what to see.

Would definitely stay here again.

Thanks! We have one by far one of the best locations in town. We are within walking distance to most of the battlefield attractions, in addition to plenty of shopping and dining spots. Our staff is eager to please and wants each guest to have a great Gettysburg experience!

My wife and I have stayed at this location while returning to New England from all points of the compass. The staff was friendly and attentive. The room was clean, well appointed and comfortable. Our bathroom was sparkling and stocked with soap and shampoo. Our goldens, Molly and Maisey, rested comfortably with no noticeable concerns. Yes the a/c was not the quietest, but it was no louder than the units in our home. Our breakfast was adequate to get us up and moving.
I have read the negative reviews regarding this establishment and find them at odds with my experiences. In my humble opinion this is a well run organization that provides a service above and beyond the going rate.

Stayed two nights in Gettysburg at Americas Best Value Inn and had a very nice stay, all staff was friendly and the room was comfortable and clean. The location was perfect as it was easy to walk anywhere in downtown and just a short drive to the visitors center in the battlefield. the room we had was on first floor with private parking space under cover and had a rear entrance that made unloading a snap. I would stay here when I go back to Gettysburg.

Thank you for the nice words! We are located 0.8 of a mile from both downtown Gettysburg and the Visitor's Center, and both are easily walkable. Our undercover parking with assigned room numbers are very popular with our guests. We look forward to seeing you next time!

We stayed in this hotel for two nights during a family vacation to Gettysburg then to DC. We checked in late and the woman at the front desk was very friendly and checked us in quickly. The hotel is a little outdated, however, it was clean and the beds were comfortable. We had no complaints about the hotel. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and the front desk was helpful with directions, etc.
Hotel is within walking distance and on the main strip on many local shops. While it is across the street from the entrance of the Gettysburg Battlefield, you're not going to walk there. The visitors center is down a ways. No matter what hotel you stay at it's not going to be within walking distance of the visitors center. The battlefield tour is made for driving. This hotel is probably the closest to the entrance of the park.

Thank you! We are located 0.8 of a mile from the NPS Visitor's Center, and it is walkable on a nice day. There is a walking path located from very close to us that leads directly to the Visitor's Center. There is also a trolley that stops right in front of our property that will take you there, in addition to other destinations throughout town. Hope to see you again soon!

Room was clean. Everyone was very friendly. Have stayed here before. Would like to be able to use doors at the end to get in. But we will be back. You can't find another hotel in Gettysburg, with location, friendly staff, breakfast and pool. For the price.

We chose this hotel after looking at several that were pet friendly. The reviews were accurate. The entire staff is very friendly and dog friendly. They made over our pup as if she was a movie star. The room was spacious- we had two double beds- second floor with a balcony view of the pool and battlefield. Room 208 was convenient to everything. The room is remodeled and the beds were fine. I enjoyed the retro feel of the bathroom tile and the two porcelain sinks. The water pressure in the shower was excellent. This is important to me since I have very curly hair. The breakfast was ok but not over the top. They have all the standards- hot and cold cereal, an array of pastries and bread options, fruit, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and milk. The rooms and hallway were quiet. Occasionally you could hear a dog bark but nothing that was bothersome.

This hotel was just down the road from the battlefield - which was in walking distance. It was also within walking distance of a few blocks of the shops and restaurants. But it would have been a sizable hike to most of the attractions. The manager was very informative and helped us to decide on which tour to take (highly recommend the individual car tour!!) The room was very clean. The box springs looked ancient and there was only 2 double beds. My husband and I are use to a king bed so we couldn't sleep together. The bathroom was clean but very 1970's. The balcony was....well it was dirty with cigarette butts and water from the air conditioner. $100 a night wasn't a best value but overall the stay was comfortable.

Thanks! We are located only 0.8 of a mile to the downtown center of Gettysburg in addition to being only 0.8 of a mile to the NPS Visitor's Center. Most of the major battle attractions are located within an easy walking distance, including Pickett's Charge, High Water Mark, National Cemetery, plus many more. We have plans to power wash the entire exterior of the building once summer slows down a bit, so that will take care of the air conditioner condensation on the balcony. Hope to see you again!
