“Unique setting for your Gettysburg stay”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights in May 2013. The property is easy to find and had ample free parking. You can walk to the "downtown" area of Gettysburg easily from here. It is on the main "drag" through town so there is some traffic noise - but we didn't find it troublesome. We had a king suite on the 2nd floor. Plenty of room, very clean, and light filled. One note - if you are a light sleeper - the heavy curtains work well except at the tops - some light does get through - this did not bother us though. There is a fairly large dorm type refrigerator in the room and a Keurig machine. There is NO food in the facility though (not even a vending machine) - this was not a problem for us - just know this before you go. There is a restaurant next door (we did not try it) and there is a grocery store one block away. We got yogurts and fruit for breakfast at the grocery store and that worked well. This is a small hotel and we liked that - no getting stuck with a large motorbus group! (especially in the spring when every 8th grader in a 500 mile radius seemed to be there!).

Highly recommend - if you are looking for a unique property that is clean, easy to access and comfortable!

We stayed one night as a family and thoroughly enjoyed it. The building is beautiful and has been wonderfully restored and repurposed. Our kids got a kick out of sleeping in an old school building. All of the furnishings were beautiful, comfortable and upscale, and everything was impeccably clean. We had a suite with a separate sitting room that used the building's original front door as the window. The masonry work around the door was really cool, and the tall ceilings make the already large rooms feel even more spacious. The location is great - within a short drive to the battlefield park, and an easy walk to the center of town. The front desk staff are wonderful and gave great advice on where to eat and what to do. The restaurant next door is great for breakfast - reasonable prices and wonderful food. All in all, it's definitely worth the extra expense to stay someplace unique and luxurious. We'll stay again if we ever get back to Ge

Room Tip: If you plan to use the sitting room with the sofa bed (one of our kids did) be aware that the window...

I chose this hotel for our overnight stay in Gettysburg because it was our anniversary and I wanted someplace special. We picked the King suite rate, which is more than I would normally pay, but it was worth it. The room was huge, with incredibly tall ceilings and a great bed. The bathroom was beautifully renovated with an air tub and gorgeous shower. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Parking was easy and the location is very convenient. While there isn't a restaurant in the hotel, it's within easy walking distance of a number of places.

Recently stayed one night while visiting the area. Great location in downtown Gettysburg, only 2-3 blocks from the town square (circle). Hotel is an old school built in 1896. Plenty of parking right at hotel. Staff was very friendly during check in and helped with some recommendations for dinner. Room was on first floor, double queen, facing the front of the hotel (entrance to hotel is in the back). Room was very clean, nicely updated. Flat screen TV was small but had to fit on a small wall. Bathroom clean, large, no tube, nice shower. Pillows were soft. Only compliant was the street noise and noise of folks walking in room above us. As we were on the first floor, facing the street, heard all the cars and trucks going by. Also at night and in morning, heard our neighbors in the room above us walking around on the old squeaky floors. Recommend taking a room on the 2nd floor and facing the parking lot if you can.

Room Tip: Get one on the second floor and facing the parking lot.

My husband and I stayed here in March 2013. From the moment we walked up the stairs we were pleased! The door was opened for us, check in was a breeze, we were personally escorted to our room (the "honeymoon" suite on the lower level), and given a brief history of the inn. The woman (manager or owner perhaps) was extremely pleasant and professional. Our suite was AMAZING! Everything was immaculate! We immensely enjoyed our stay here! We were only sad we couldn't stay longer! We look forward to staying here again soon. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

In Gettysburg for a weekend getaway for my dad's birthday...The Federal Pointe Inn was a perfect place for us to stay. We had three rooms, all very nicely renovated, while still honoring the character and history of the school that it had been. The rooms were nicely-sized to very spacious, with extremely comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, and in-room fridge and coffee.

The location is convenient, just a short walk into town and a short drive to the Visitor's Center/Museum and other local sights. The restaurant next door is fine for breakfast, though nothing special. The staff was very helpful and welcoming, and the low rates we got on the rooms made this hotel a fantastic choice.

Room Tip: The corner room/suite was very spacious, with a separate sitting area and a large bath. Our regular...

Our stay at the Federal Pointe Inn couldn't have been nicer. The location is great - a short walk to the center of town and a short drive to the Gettysburg Visitor Center. The building has been beautifully renovated and our room was very large, comfortable and nicely decorated. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful.

Things to know: There is no restaurant or bar in the building so you will need to go out to eat or drink. It is one of the few hotels that we have stayed at that has a real freezer in the room refrigerator – a big plus if you are touring. No elevator to the upper floors so if you have trouble climbing stairs, ask for a room on the reception level (2nd floor).

Dunlaps Restaurant is good for breakfast and just across the Inn’s parking lot.

Room Tip: Second floor is less noisy, but there are no elevators.
