“Great location, nice hotel.”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

For our first time in Gettysburg, my husband and I wanted to stay at a hotel that had a great location and was within close walking distance to all the major attractions. This hotel certainly delivered. They had our room ready 2 hours before check-in time. The room was clean and quiet. It had all the comforts we would need. The staff was also very friendly. Not one complaint about our stay. We will stay again.

This hotel was perfect for us. It was centrally located to almost everything in Gettysburg. The room was incredibly clean and the bathroom was spotless! Comfortable beds too. With the exception of those "cool" Harley dudes who think it's fun to rev their engines at the stoplights outside the hotel, it was reasonably quiet. Will definetly come back to this place. Great job!

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We are so glad that you enjoyed your visit! We are very proud of our staff. They do a great job. We do apologize for the noise. We are located on a main street and it can get a bit loud now and then. There are rooms on the back of the hotel that do not get as much noise but the view is so nice on the front of the building. We look foward to your next visit. Thank you again for the kind words!

This hotel was clean, quiet, convenient and allowed our pet (a puppy). There even was a large grassy area behind the hotel that our dog loved! The view from the balcony that goes all the way around the exterior of every floor was also a plus. I stood outside and overlooked the center of Gettysburg around midnight. Very few cars went through and it was quite peaceful. Although I saw no ghosts, I knew the spirits of too many Americans were present. There is a cemetery in plain view from one of the corners overlooking the town.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room on the fifth floor.

Thank you so much for taking the time to tell us about our visit. We are glad that you found your room to be clean and comfortable. We are also happy that your puppy had a good time! (we do love our furry friends here!) The location of the hotel is great! The view of the town is wonderful. Gettysburg is such a beautiful little town with so much to see and do. We hope that you will come back and see us again. It would be our pleasure! Thank you again for the review!

The location of the hotel is perfect. It is within walking distance of all the major attractions. The rooms are clean and quiet for the most part and the staff is friendly. However, there were some minor issues that detracted from the overall experience. We were on the 5th floor and the wifi service was spotty at best. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't. This wasn't a huge problem but it seems like this is a standard in most hotels and should be corrected. Second, and for me the most troublesome was (believe it or not) the condition of the toilet seat. The top was cracked and crumbly and at first I thought it was just dirty. The coating had bubbled up and was crumbling off. I brought this to the attention of the hotel staff who said they would have maintenance fix it while we were out, but they never did. Finally the free breakfast was a bit limited. It is nice to have a free breakfast, but the healthy alternatives were limited and not great quality. I would consider staying there again but would lower my expectatons in terms of expected quality.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We use this information to improve our service. The internet connection is a bit spotty on the 5th floor. The building is poured concrete which makes it difficult to get a good wireless signal, therefore we offer both wireless and wired. We would have been happy to provide you with an ethernet cable to use the wired service. The FREE breakfast bar offers a very large variety of hot and cold items. We have many healthy options to choose from-yogurt-wheat bread-whole grain cereals-fruit-oatmeal-skim milk and 2% milk. I am happy to hear that your room was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. I do apologize for the issue with the toilet seat. That was a total lack of communication on our part. There is no excuse-it should have been taken care of immediately. The seat was clean but it did have some peeling paint. I have spoken to both the front desk and the maintenance department about the probelm. Again, I do apologize. Thank you again for the review. I appreciate the information.

This is our favorite hotel in gettysburg. The rooms are large and clean, and the included breakfast every morning cannot be beat (its free!, one less meal to buy for vaca) The location is prime, it is within walking distance of a gas station, all of the shops, and restaurants. The circle is only a mile away as well. Cannot beat location, price, and inclusions!!! Will stay here again!!

Room Tip: We stayed on the 5th floor, the view of the city/shops is awesome!!!

Located close to the Gettysburg Military Park and the Cemetery, the hotel is perfect for families and couples who want to be in close proximity to all attractions. It has an outdoor pool, the staff is friendly and efficient, and the room was clean. We will stay again the next time we go to Gettysburg.
