The kids and I wanted a quick getaway from boring winter and we found this place via choice hotels.com. For being part of a chain of hotels, it was family oriented and had a family feel to it. The place has a clean campus, spotless rooms, impeccably clean. Well maintained. We were in a 3 bed room, which was spacy and room enough for the 4 of us. (No fridge and no microwave-the only drawback), but there was a coffee pot and coffee packs provided.
If this were the beach, then this is ocean front. The battlefield and all main attractions/touristy spots on Steinwehr are within walking distance. Quick walking distance. The battlefield is a stone's throw away ( 1/2 block, if that). This motor lodge literally sits right on the door step of everything that is Gettysburg. If it was warm outside, you would not even need your vehicle. civil war museum, shopping, General Pickett's buffet, the Jennie Wade House, the Ghost tours, the bus tours. For the Lincoln Square tourist spots, it's less than five minutes away via vehicle.
It is affordable. It is quiet. It is safe. It isn't haunted that we noticed, but we had electrical issues with our gadgets, keeping things charged and keeping the lap top on. We hads orbs in the room as well. Not the motel's fault. There is free wifi.
Staff is friendly, they say hello and even have conversations with you. They work from the time they get there til the time they leave. John, in housekeeping was the best. They are informative and helpful with Gettysburg 'attractions'. They know their stuff.
There is a continental breakfast with the basics. It was ok, but we aren't ones for hotel breakfasts. There's a bar on site. We were in the bar building and heard no noise.
I loved the place and would definitely stay there again.
