I had a reservation for Saturday, Sept. 24 and Sunday the 25th. When we arrived they intially couldn't find the reservation. I gave them my confirmation number, and they found my reservation. But they had no rooms. They did send us to another, more expensive, hotel. But they did not offer to make up the price difference. They said they... More

We are in the midst of installing a new computer system at the hotel. We have over 1,400 reservations to transfer from one system to another and all done by hand-no automatic transfer. You made your reservations thru a third party site-such as Expedia-Price Line or Hot Wire. It has been a bit hectic, to say the least, trying to... More

Good location for stay in Gettysburg. No more than 10 mins walk to most places in town. Big car park. Nice big room and friendly staff. Plenty of choice at breakfast though the dining room is a bit plain. Would stop here again without doubt.

The best thing about this Inn was its location, it is in walking distance of many shops, historical eateries and more. The inn provided ample parking, was clean, well maintained and breakfast was adequate. Staff could have been more welcoming. The 3 times I interacted with the front desk, I felt as if I were interrupting their other activities such... More

Thank you for telling us about your stay. I do apologize if the staff seemed a bit preoccupied. We are just completing the installation of a new computer and phone system and it has been a little hectic with training and using a new system plus trying to grab a bite to eat when we could. However that is no... More

This hotel is older and somewhat dated-- the bathrooms, carpets, drapes, etc could all use a redo. However, the rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast room is also rather tired and gloomy. That said, it is super convenient to walking distance of almost everything and that was great! Also the front desk staff was so nice and answered all... More

My wife and I stay at the 1863 Inn every fall. A nice central location and a very clean hotel. The staff was helpful and friendly. They also offer a free breakfast with your stay. We will always stay here on our trips to Gettysburg.

If you've ever been to Gettysburg you know parking in town can be a challenge. We've always driven by this hotel and wanted to stay there because it's central location makes it great for parking your car and walking to everything. Get a room facing the street if you enjoy people watching! The room is very nice- especially compared to... More

Centrally located which was nice, however there was no bar or lounge. The AC was very poor in the lobby and there wasn't any in the elevator. Its a glorified motor lodge at best parking was convenient.
