This hotel fantastic and the suites were huge! We got a living room, bedroom, kitchenette and bath instead of just a bedroom with a desk and chair in the corner. Too bad we were only staying for one night. If I was taking my family for a visit to Gettysburg, this would be the perfect "home base." Right off the square, walking distance to food and entertainment, and private parking in the alley.
This hotel has the charm of a B&B with unique suites and lots of personal touches. I liked fresh baked goods (no packaged stuff), OJ, and fruits for the Continental breakfast plus quality coffee, not the stale packages. There was even a flash-light in our bedroom...have you ever been in a hotel when the power went out? I haven't, but Gburg does have a sketchy power system so its great that the hotel is thinking of all possible needs.
I agree with the comments about the noise! The Lincoln Highway is right outside the room. The history is appreciated (this road is what gave Eisenhower to inspiration for the Interstate System), but the trucks keep driving by all night. I had a pair of earplugs in my bag, so I had no trouble sleeping. The hotel should consider offering the cheap foam pairs to light-sleeping guests rather then face bad reviews for something totally beyond their control.
