“First visit to Gen. Lee's Headquarters”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

We booked 8 rooms for a birthday party at a local restaurant. The staff was very accommodating to our needs. The rooms were clean. It would have been nice to have a mini fridge in the unit. The biggest problem we had was with heating units. The fans were very loud and had to be on to get any heat, so if you sensitive to noise I would forgo this motel. The breakfast was well stocked and they kept the hot foods coming. We enjoyed the museum and gift shop.

We booked at the Quality Inn at the last minute after a drama with our accommodation in Lancaster. We drove up and over the rise and there before us was General Lee's Headquarters. The old style drive up rooms were clean and tidy and excellent value for the price. Breakfast was included and whilst basic, the DIY waffles were great. The view from the Inn was straight across a battle field and dripped history as did the small museum at the Inn (which was free). The brewpub next door was very cool also and a nice easy stroll for a feed. Would definitely recommend the Qulaity Inn for any Civil War enthusiast.

My husband and I love Gettysburg and have stayed at this hotel several times. The rooms are clean, the remodel seems recent and the staff is nice. Even though the beds are hard, I just bring a sleeping bag for padding, the cleanliness and location make up for it. Especially in the Dustman suites. These are 2 large suites in a separate building constructed on what was left of a barn once used as a field hospital during the war. The property was apparently owned by the Dustman family during that time. When I have trouble finding vacancy elsewhere, there is always 1 or 2 rooms left here. I think it is due to the commercial recognition of the chain hotels and when events are happening in town, those fill fast. The General Lee's Headquarters is the stone building on the location and it has a gift shop & a museum free to guests of the hotel. It takes about 20 minutes to browse the museum. There is also a restaurant on the site, Appalachian Brewing Co. which is ok. I have a room reserved at this hotel for our upcoming stay and I look forward to it.

Room Tip: The Dustman Suites are good for groups up to 6 or for a couples getaway. Complimentary breakfast, p...

Just stayed here for a small one night getaway with my girlfriend. We ad dinner at the one site Appalachian brewery which was incredible. The room was extremely nice and clean the breakfast awesome with a nice view if the battlefield and the staff was extremely helpful an friendly! Also located with very easy access to the battlefields an downtown Gettysburg. This is definitely gonna become a annual stay for us. I highly recommend the Quality Inn at Lee's Headquarters.

The people are friendly, the location is fantastically close to the park, and the view from the back is quaint. I wish they let me know that the General Lee Museum is closed for the season. I am typing additional comments to get to 200 characters ... The Quick Brown Fox Jumped Over The Lazy Dogs.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the woods

We try to stay here every time we visit Gettysburg, which is annually. I love the decor. It's not your standard hotel furnishings. The staff are always super friendly and accomodating. The rooms are clean and well maintained. And my husband loves the location.
