“Very Good but a little outdated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2011

After I read some of the reviews I thought I had made a mistake but it was a very good stay,just a little smell but nothing that didn't leave in a short time and we always travel with room spray.My only complaint was that the sink was across from the bathroom in the hallway but thats because it does really need some upgrading and thats the way it is.Front desk was great and very helpful and the housekeeping was one of the best we have had. Iron was broken and we called and had one in less than 5 minutes.We stayed Sat. and Sunday for a wedding and thats when we needed the iron.Would stay there again because of the overall service but maybe not because of the bathroom sink placement.

Room Tip: Check to see if any rooms have the sink in batroom and get that room.

I'm so pleased when guests think our hotel is a newer one...We certainly try our best to keep it looking as though it were new...Thank you for taking the time to send your response as they always help us to know where we need to improve, although as much as we try to please all guests and their issues, i can't move the bathroom sink, it is where it is and all rooms are the same.Please visit us again when you are in the area..Best Regards,

We stayed here for two nights and was our first stopover on our road trip to New Orleans from Boston.

For the price ($55 p.n.) we were very pleasantly surprised. Looks like a fairly new property so everything was in very good condition. Our room was a good size with two queen beds and spotlessly clean.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Complimentary breakfast was excellent. It's not the Ritz, but great place to stop if visiting the Gettysburg National Military Park. No complaints and very pleasantly surprised with our first Days Inn experience.

On Gettysburg itself, definitely worth spending time exploring the battlefield site. The scale is enormous so make sure you set aside ample time. The Visitor Centre is excellent and a good place to start. We booked our bus tour tickets here along with tickets foe the movie, cyclorama and museum. The combined ticket is the best deal if you want to make a day of it.

Booked 2 rooms for 3 nights from 9/13 to to 9/16/2011 for a family reunion. Rooms are run down and in desperate need of upgrading. The mattresses in one room had metal pieces sticking out of all 4 corners. Took almost 2 hours to check out without an explanation of why; meanwhile others were checking in and out without any problems. Once I got home, it was discovered the reason for the delay in checking out was that they had compromised my credit card causing a new account number to be issued to me. My first day home I had to contact all the merchants that put monthly recurring charges on my credit card. As if that was not enough, I learned today that they double billed me for the stay. Another headache I have to deal with. When will I stop being punished for choosing this hotel for my family reunion?

What can i say ? Pictures don't lie....But what this guest failed to convey is the fact she was told new box springs and mattresses had already been ordered to replace what needed replaced immediately and we were waiting for delivery and that everything will be new in the hotel beginning in November.There is much more to this complaint than is being told by this guest such as the outcome but i will not elaborate....I know we will never satisfy every guest who stays here but we do our best to make all guests stays as enjoyable as possible, unfortunately sometimes issues beyond our control do arise but we address them and find a resolution as soon as possible !I'm sorry this guest feels it necessary to try damage our reputation but i think the majority of the other posted responses speak to the real Days Inn in Gettysburg..Thank You

Just curious, on the room tip space you suggested a 1st floor room so you don't have to carry luggage up.We do have elevators or maybe they were very busy at the time ??
Again, thank you for being a guest at Days Inn

Yep, that's right, this is the best Days Inn, I have stayed at yet. I got this room for $44 plus tax. We were traveling south and decided to stop in Gettysburg, Pa., to take in the history. Got on line and found this Days Inn for $44. So I booked it online while we were traveling down the freeway in northern Pa.

This looks to be a newer Days Inn, the outside was bright and clean. The grounds were landscaped and taken care of. There is a Perkins restaurant next door.

When we went inside, I was nearly flabergasted!. This place was outstanding. It was on par with a Hampton Inn, only 60% less the cost. The lobby was new, clean, bright, all the lights worked. The carpet was clean and the folks behind the desk were really nice.

There was a small separate sitting area with coffee and tv just off the front desk and this was not the breakfast location. We went to our room and it was really really good. Two double queens for $44. All new and clean, I could not find a single problem in the room or bath.

We went to find some place to eat other than Perkins and they had this entire flip chart with local menus. It was great, however we were tired and walked one minute to the Perkins. The Perkins is an average family restaurant that prides themselves in baked goods. That is about if for Perkins.

All in all, the Days Inn, Gettysburg was just outstanding! If you have never been to Gettysburg, Pa, the site of one of the largest battles of the American Civil War, you should visit it. It is just very interesting and fun. The town is bright and clean and filled with all kinds of history stuff you can do.

I want to add, that the hotel staff are also great. They are friendly and helpful and it was a real joy to have stayed at this Days Inn.

Even if the local area was not filled with history, I would say, go to this Days Inn and stay there just to experience it. When you add all the stuff Gettysburg, Pa. has to offer, this is a must visit and stay. I am telling you, you will not be disappointed.
Have fun!

Room Tip: Check outside metropolitan areas

My husband and I stayed at this Days Inn during our trip to Gettysburg. We were very pleased with our stay. The cost of the room (about $50 per night) was well within our budget. The staff was very friendly. The rooms were very, very clean and the bed was comfortable. The free breakfast in the morning was better than you get at most hotels. Would definitely stay here again. No complaints.

The price was good for what you got. It was clean, the beds were comfortable, but they started putting the breakfast items away before the time it was to end at 9:30
