“Excellent choice for Gettysburg stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

This lodging is in the perfect location for access to the battlefield, national cemetery, touristy stuff for kids like the wax museum etc. Most are walkable if you are so inclined. Indoor and outdoor pools, only one of which is open at a time depending on weather I guess. Rooms are not new but clean with comfortable beds. Wifi kind of spotty but sometimes usable. Decent free breakfast served except the main dish never changes (scrambled egg pucks and sausage) but there are all the usual cereals, yogurt, muffins etc. so there is no need to go elsewhere.
I would have no qualms in recommending this place to a friend and the location is far superior to the name brand hotels out by the highway. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: First floor rooms allow easy access to car and have refrigerator/microwaves which may not be the cas...

If your looking for a good value and friendly service this place is it. We stayed here for a night and the breakfast in the morning was decent. The had some pools but didn't get to try them out. People at the front desk got us checked in fast. The food was just average but clean.

This place is situated at the end of one of the main streets and is skirted by the cemetery. It's within walking distance to everything, or a quick bus ride to the downtown area. The rooms are a little worn and dated, and could use a thorough cleaning in their nooks and crannies, but overall they were clean. The beds were comfortable and lots of comfy pillows provided. Staff was friendly and helpful. Even the maintenance crew had a good report with the teens. Pool area was very nice, as well. Close to several restaurants and attractions but away from all the hustle & bustle. I recommend giving them a try.

I first stayed at this hotel on my Honeymoon in 2005. Since then, my husband and I have returned for three trips, and each time we have stayed here. The location is absolutely unbeatable - nestled between the High Water Mark & the Soldier's National Cemetery. Downtown is a short walk, with plenty of places to stop & explore on the way. Across the street is the Wax Museum, which almost always has something interesting going on - on our last trip, I grabbed a cup of coffee from the continental breakfast and walked across the street to visit a Rebel Encampment, have a book signed by perennial visitor Jeff Sharra, and watch a local radio personality interview "Robert E. Lee" as well as author & historian Allen Guelzo!
The staff of the hotel is always friendly and the rooms are always clean. But make no mistake - this Quality Inn is no frills. The continental breakfast, while perfectly serviceable, offers little in the way of variety. The rooms are standard chain-hotel quality, with minimally comfortable beds & cheap furniture. If you can, I recommend staying in a first-floor room, so you're able to just walk out your door and experience the ambiance of the town.
Like all other hotels on Earth, the prices are astronomical during major events - my husband & I dropped almost $1,600 for a nine-night stay during the Sesquicentennial. But the proximity to the battlefield, and ability to leave the car & walk to a lot of the events was priceless. If you're visiting in the off-season (winter/spring) the rates are drastically lower, and you still get the fabulous location. Happy travels!

The Quality Inn-Gettysburg Motor lodge is located close to everything. The rooms are modern and very clean and the beds are very comfortable. The staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast is included with the room and is very nice. The property is well maintained. Our requested room on the first floor was quiet, no smoking and no pets and with an assigned parking space...no driving around looking for a space. A great place to stay!

Room Tip: While this is a two story facility with no elevators, all you have to do is request a ground floor r...

We stayed here for two nights in early August while touring Gettysburg with our 3 teenagers. Really should get 3 stars, but the diving board in the outdoor pool merits a star of its own - seriously, no one has diving boards anymore - my kids loved it!

Rooms were very average, could absolutely use some updating. Beds were either very very worn or just really really soft. DH and I hated the bed, but kids didn't seem to mind. Shower pressure left a lot to be desired, too.

Location is great, though, close to battlefield and shops and restaurants. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Breakfast house is kind of small, try going around 9.30 - not as crowded then. I would stay here again if I'm with my kids if only for the pool. Otherwise, we'll probably look elsewhere next visit.

Thank you for the review. You're right- diving boards are few and far between these days and I'm glad your kid enjoyed the opportunity to use it! We use the bedding that is required by Choice Hotels and we do receive many compliments on the comfort of the beds, but I realize bedding is an extremely subjective topic! We have twice the amount of seating that is required for a property of our size but I know during peak breakfast times it can get a bit tight. I'm so glad you were able to take advantage of our great location during your stay in Gettysburg!
