I am just back from a trip to Gettysburg, PA. I booked this hotel at the last minute after cancelling other plans, so I didn't do the proper research to find out the hotel's location in relation to the town of Gettysburg. I was surprised to see that it was in a shopping Mall. The Mall is an outlet center with about 40 stores and appears to be fairly new. Also, in the same complex is a TGI Fridays Restaurant. The hotel has a nicely decorated lobby area, clean and bright. Check in was easy -- there were very few visitors there when we arrived on a mid-week afternoon. We soon drove out to find the Gettysburg National Battlefield. I was surprised that the town of Gettysburg is in the center of the battlefield. The visitors center is in the park, but also in the center of the town. This was a five minute car ride from our hotel. There were lots of hotels in the town area. However, it seemed that there were busloads of school children and young teens visiting. A lot of them were staying in these hotels. As an older adult, I was very happy to be staying away from all the crowds and noise from these school kids. We traded some convenience for some peace and quiet -- a good trade-off, I think ! The room itself was very nice and clean. We had a king bed. The room was handicapped accessible so the bathroom was large enough for a wheelchair and the shower was made for that purpose,too. It made for an awkward shower configuration -- so I wouldn't book this type of room again -- even though we managed just fine. We ate dinner at the TGI Fridays since it was so convenient to the motel. I wasn't impressed with the food there. The following night we tried Tommy's Pizza -- right across from the National Cemetery. That place was just great. The pizza was delicious. All in all, I enjoyed my stay at the Country Inn and Suites in Gettysburg. I had never heard of this chain before -- but I would recommend it. If you like to shop along with vacationing at the park-- the shops were very nice, steps away from the hotel and open until 9:00.
