We stayed at the Brafferton Inn on Oct 14 & 15, 2006. It was a birthday weekend for my boyfriend, a history buff. The location was ideal - walking distance to everything in town. We were warmly greeted when we arrived and found the innkeepers to be very friendly. They provided us with a CD that contained a driving tour of the battlefield that was excellent. We found the breakfast to be just OK. The pastries were great, but the apple cinnamon french toast was soggy.
We did have some issues with our stay, however. We stayed in "Dorothy's Hideaway" which was a nice, comfortable room with a large, remodeled bath that contained a jacuzzi tub. Our room had a 'in the wall' heating and cooling unit. As the temps were in the 30s at night, we used the unit to heat the room. It was extemely loud and woke me up every time it turned on. On our second night, we were abruptly awoken by the smoke detector in our room. Once we determined that there was not a fire, we determined that the heating unit was emiting a terrible smoky smell (think about 200 hairdryers blowing up at once). We left the room to call the innkeepers and let them know what happened (this was approximately 5am) as we were concerened that other guests would have heard the smoke detector. The innkeepers did not apologize for the situation and just asked us to turn off the unit. After returning to the room, we discovered that the filter on the heating unit was extremely clogged (which probably caused the terrible smell).
We finally fell back asleep around 7:30am and thus slept through breakfast. We rushed to check out by 11am. The innkeepers only offered us a 30% discount on a future stay. I was honestly too tired and too eager to find some breakfast to protest this offer as it really didn't make up for our experience. Overall, we enjoyed the trip to Gettysburg, but I was unhappy with the way the situation was handled.
