“Perfect setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

Stayed here for 2 nights earlier this month whilst visiting battle site.
Excellent location with great views.
After a day sight seeing you can relax by the pool then enjoy a meal and beer at the restaurant next door.
Sad to hear its closing at the end of the year so visit while you can !

The General Lee Headquarters Quality Inn is the best place to stay in Gettysburg.
We have stayed there a few times and always left happy.
It is located right next to the battlefield.
The place is always kept clean and the staff is very helpful and always cheerful.
We were so sorry to hear that they will be closing at the end of the year so that the area can be restored as part of the National Park.
It is the only hotel I am aware of that has it's own museum.

Best wishes to all the staff in the future.

Room Tip: All the rooms are clean and well kept.

This is our second time staying here. We always stay in one of the period houses across the street from the actual hotel. Our suite was spotless! This is the first time that we used the pool since we traveled in the fall during our last stay here. The pool was immaculate! My kids kept saying to me, "mom this pool is SO clean!" The staff are very, very nice. They are personable and always take the time to say hello to you. The free breakfast is a big plus for us! It is very good.We love the General Lee's Museum that is onsite. It has some very unique pieces. I know that this hotel is closing soon and I just want to say THANK YOU for going above and beyond to your guests! We will miss staying with you.

Room Tip: Stay in one of the period suites! It's like stepping back in time but with the amenities of toda...

Our family of 5 stayed here on a 2 week road trip through the NorthEast.
It's a typical road motel. Good value. Friendly & helpful patrons. Breakfast was surprisingly good. Ideal location for touring Gettysburg for 2 days...no big hotels in the immediate vicinity.

Decent room for the price. Breakfast was good and the staff was very friendly. Perfectly located with close access to downtown and the battlefield and monuments. The wifi did not work in our room which was disappointing. Overall our stay was pleasant and comfortable.

Clean, view of the battlefields, museum attached to the hotel, perfect pillows and the staff was helpful and really nice (especially Missy, her boss can really be proud of her and her representation of the hotel and the town).
