“A+ in Gettysburg!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

So many wonderful things have been said about this hotel already, but I'm very happy to "pile on" with my effusive praise. My partner, parents and I just completed a two-night stay in one of the townhouses, and everything about this stay was perfect. The very roomy townhouse was homey and comfortable, yet stylish and well-appointed. And the location just steps off of Gettysburg's square is incredible.

But, as so many others have written, it was innkeeper Jeannine who truly made this place outstanding. From the first call to make the reservation to her personalized check-in process to her inquiries during the stay to make sure all was perfect, Jeannine was the embodiment of the term "innkeeper." She truly cares about the hotel's guests and happily tailors her assistance to meet their needs.

I could go on and on. But suffice to say that when we return to Gettysburg, we will stay at the Inn at Lincoln Square.

Spent the weekend in the Irene Danner Suite over looking the Lincoln Square. Lovely place was very clean and the staff was polite and respectful they were there at a drop of a dime when needed. This was a great find!

There have been so many wonderful things written before about this inn as you can see for yourself, which was the main reason I chose it for our 4 night stay in Gettysburg. From the moment I spoke with Jeannine on the phone until checkout on Thursday morning, I was sold on this inn. The real gem of this inn, is the hospitality and attention that Jeannine gave us during the duration of our stay. She was totally hands-on from meeting us on the front street to guide us to our parking space to making sure all of our needs and comforts were taken care of. We stayed in the Eva Danner townhouse that was so very spacious for the two of us, but it was delightful to have the run of the whole townhouse and move about just as you would at home. Having no TV's upstairs was a plus for us as one of us is an early riser and the other is a night owl. It made sleeping in and an early bedtime nice and quiet without having the other of us agrivated with noise.

The full kitchen was nice, even though we did not cook. Having the coffee pot and coffee there along with fresh pastries/muffins and a basket of fresh fruit (refilled daily) was a nice touch.

I would say my only negative was the narrow alley where the parking spot was. Otherwise, no other complaints.

I look forward to going back to Gettysburg at some point and hope to stay here again. If you should choose this inn with it's great centralized location, you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: If you can get a townhouse, do so! There is little noise from the outside and they are very spaciou...

We were fortunate enough to get a room at this amazing place. We stayed on the top floor, a suite that included all of the amenities: full kitchen, king size bed, plenty of seating. The room was full of so much charm and wa so cozy, we contemplated even leaving! And the fact it is located on the square I'm the heart of Gettysburg meant we could run out for dinner or do some shopping and site seeing and easily run back to our room to drop a few things off. The service was outstanding and we felt like we were at home. Highly recommend this place!

Can't say enough about the comfort and location of the inn. As for our innkeeper, Jeannine, she made us feel at home and part of her family. She accommodated us in every way. Miss the inn and Jeannine. We will definitely be back. We returned home with great memories. Thanks Jeannine. See you soon from Sharon and family.

This inn is located downtown, where restaurants, shops, etc. are all in walking distance. We stayed in the first floot Danner Suite--extremely spacious with bedroom, sitting area, kitchenette, and a large comfortable bathroom (shower only) with plenty of counterspace. Although we didn't take much advantage of the kitchenette, it was well-equipped and would be great for anyone who wanted to eat in more often than we did. Our innkeeper, Jeannine, kept the fridge stocked with water and the baskets on the table filled with more fruit and muffins than two of us could ever consume. Jeannine was very welcoming and helpful throughout, loaning us great DVDs for a Gettysburg battlefield tour and changing light bulbs to 100 watts in the bedroom to accommodate our aging eyes. But saving the best for last, she accompanied us to our car when we were leaving, where we discovered that our battery was dead. She promptly pulled her car around and helped us jump start ours. On the road in 5 minutes!

Room Tip: The first floor suite's sitting area is just steps from the square. Although we didn't find...

We stayed recently at in the Mary Juliet Danner Suite, and overall had a very nice visit.

Overall this was very nice room, appropriately decorated in mid-1800’s style. The room is made up a bedroom and a sitting room, separated by a small kitchenette. There is a large and well maintained bathroom (shower only) off the bedroom. Overall the suite was quite large.

The kitchenette well stocked (small frig, sink, coffee maker, coffee, plates, knives, plates, etc.). We found ourselves using this a bit more than we anticipated.

The bed was a very comfortable king-sized bed – firm and felt relatively new. We only ask that they provide a couple of real down pillows.

The suite had its own AC/heating control that we found worked quite well, and was not too noisy when running.

The sitting room could easily accommodate 5 or 6 people if you wanted to meet up for coffee or drinks before dinner. Do note that the suite is on the ground floor with the two sitting room windows looking directly onto Lincoln Square. This provides a nice view, but does mean closing the shades for privacy.

We appreciated that fresh fruit and muffins were in the room, and replenished each day. This, combined with the coffee, made for a much less hectic morning.

The location is very convenient – directly on the Gettysburg square. This led to a bit of occasional street noise, but nothing too bad.

Jeannine, our innkeeper, was great. She helped us get organized and settle in. She also set up a driving tour of the Battlefield with a licensed NPS guide. Three hours was $83 ($100 with a tip) and well worth it.

Compared to other inns and hotels, we felt the room price was a good value. We’d recommend this place to others, especially those wanting a downtown/historic experience.
