“No cannon balls flying here...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2011

Spent two nights here after the Alabama vs. Penn State football game. We checked in with another couple and were told we were on opposite sides of the hotel from them. For $10 a night we could upgrade and move closer to them and we did. Our room had a jacuzzi tub in it and it was outstanding! This hotel also has a separate breakfast cottage which serves continental breakfast. The hotel also has a little bar named the reliance mine that serves good adult drinks.

This was an outstanding hotel situated in the middle of Gettysburg. This hotel is also down the street from Friendlys ice cream shop. I would also recommend a ghost tour with the company that has a black cat as a mascot. Our tour guide was really good.

It has been a long time since cannon balls flew over this site. In our lobby we do have 3 cannon balls on display that were found here when we were built. When you come back again maybe Penn State will do a little better against Bama.

Thank you!

Place was fairly empty since it was the winter, so the area was quiet. Room was nice and clean and breakfast was good. We were in the building with the pool so the halls smelled of chlorine.
We could walk to some attractions and to the battlefield and to some restaurants.
Easy access to the town

Winter is pretty slow here and it is quiet. Bring your jacket and you can still walk to the battlefields and town from here. Thank you for staying with us.

Perfect location for Civil War stuff. Liked the Gettysburg address attached to facade of hotel. Dated but very clean hotel. Courteous and helpful staff. Surprisingly large rooms tho very thin walls. Great swimming pools (yes! indoor and outdoor). Poor wifi. Charming breakfast room.

What better place to have the worlds largest Gettysburg Address than 200 yards from where Lincoln gave it. We are still fine tuning the wifi signal. Thank you for being our guest.

As far as hotels go, this one is the best one to stay at while in Gettysburg in my opinion. We have stayed there numerous times and really like the fact that you can walk to several shops and sites in the area right from the hotel. It has a nice breakfast cottage and the rooms are clean. The staff is friendly, especially the hard working housekeeping staff.

You wouldn't believe some of the things our housekeepers have to clean up and they keep doing a great job. Thank you for noticing.

The motel itself was well kept up. However, there wasn't a microwave or refrigerator in the room. On the plus side, they were very nice and let us check in 1 hour early. The room was relatively large. It had 1 luggage rack and room for a 2nd suitcase on the long dresser. We had to move the dresser away from the wall in order to reach an outlet to plug in the computer. Very inconvenient. Beds were comfortable. 60+ TV channels. The motel consists of several buildings-all with designated parking outside your door. We didn't eat breakfast there - the breakfast building is separate from the motel and two buildings over from the building we were in. Secure laundry facility - it's locked and the desk gives you a key so you can lock the door and go back to your room while clothes are washing and drying.

Glad you enjoyed your stay. Some of our rooms do have microwaves & refrigerators in them. Next time try our free hot buffet breakfast. It is served in a building built in 1880. It was renovated a few years ago with a Victorian motif. People think it is really cute and the ladies who work there are exceptional!

Thank you!

I am 52 and remember dad taking us to this motel back in '73 when i was a child. I bring my family here every year and every year get teary eyed because i can still see my brother and i sneaking out of our room and daring each other to climb that stone wall at the back. My family loves this motel, clean and we can walk everywhere. Love the staff and that diving board, the first place my siblings and i ever dove off of back in 73. This is THE family vacation motel in my opinion. I also appreciate that the management actually reads and responds to so many reviews. allows me to believe they really care. See you next year

When my father had that stone wall built years ago he said to the mason “Will that wall last a long time?” The mason replied “That wall will last longer than you.” My father passed away in 2002 and the wall is still there. (Two of the older buildings have been torn down and rebuilt.) Thanks for your memories. We will be pleased to see you next year.

Thank you!

I stayed here based on the rating in the AAA tour book. This hotel had a three diamond rating in the book, but it didn't live up to the rating. It was clean, but outdated. The wallpaper was coming off the walls, the toilet wobbled, and the thermostat looked like it was from the 70s.
It was also noisy. I usually do not notice how the doors close, but every door slammed shut. I noticed because people were coming and going until about 3 a.m.
On a positive note, the AC worked very well. Although, once the slamming doors finally stopped, the AC's loud clicking and swooshing on and off woke me. I am not a light sleeper, but it seemed each time as I was drifting off, a door slammed or the AC kicked on.

Sorry you were less than satisfied while you were our guest. We have a AAA 3 diamond rating (the highest in the area) because of our cleanliness, facilities and level of service. Please, any time you are staying in any hotel, report any deficiencies to the front desk so they can be rectified immediately.
