Accommodations in or near Gettysburg, PA

I want to plan a trip to Gettysburg PA for myself, my husband and our 6 and 8 year old sons. I have searched booking sites but am having a hard time deciding what property to book as it is so hard to tell what a property really looks like online alone. I would like an affordable place to stay for a couple of night where we can be comfortable - a clean place that doesn't have your skin crawling wondering how you are going to sleep there. Any and all input and suggestions from anyone who knows the area and properties there would be greatly appreciated.

There are lots of options in the area. Could you add some details about:

-your budget

-time of year

-your feelings regarding in town/walkable to attractions vs. drive to attractions

-any other details that you are really looking for

This will help us to think about which would be best for you...thanks!

Not sure of issue as there are a number of mid range chain hotels within a couple of miles of downtown(battlefield).

We stay at Americas Best Value Inn, a few times a year (we have been staying here for many years now!)....Great Location, Affordable & very, very Clean. An older motel which is maintained well above economy/basic standards. Some rooms have a small fridge & microwave ( I believe first floor rooms).They also provide a Free continental breakfast which is very nice. Enjoy Gettysburg!

In my opinion, the best place to stay are the hotels on Steinwehr Avenue- Americas Best Value Inn, Quality Inn Gettysburg Motor Lodge, Travelodge, or Inn of 1863 (at the intersection of Steinwehr and Baltimore Street). They are all conveniently located within walking distance to the 2nd and 3rd days' battlefields, the Visitors Center, and the Square in downtown Gettysburg, in addition to various shopping and dining options. They are also far enough away from the center of town to avoid the congestion and traffic of downtown.

i agree with the above posters. We have Stayed at America's Best Value Inn and never had any issues. It is an older property but very clean and in a great location. We booked online for our May trip and if you sign up for their value card you get a great discount!

We have also stayed across the Street at the Quality Inn. This is a little more expensive and also a good choice.

If you want more room look at vacation rentals here on Tripadvisor. I have rented an apartment before and they are a great choice.
