5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Always a great experience! This hotel is in a great location. Just steps away from the battlefield, shopping,resturants, and museums. I stay on a monthy basis and have always been pleased, being a member of the loyalty program, I get great rates, ealry check in and late check out. My room is always ready upon arrival with a nice welcome gift. The rooms are spacious and clean. The beds are very comfortable and there are always extra pillows in dresser drawers under TV for added comfort. The lobby is a nice olace to sit and drink the 24/7 complimentary coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. There is a fire place that makes it that much more enjoyable on the winter. The hotel also offers a complimentary breakfast. I always look forward to this meal, food is great, seating is adeqaute, and room is clean. The views of the town from the balcony are beautiful. Parking is never an issue, just be sure to display parking pass. To some up my review, I would highly recommend staying at the 1863 Inn of Gettysburg! I wouldnt stay anywhere else

We stayed in the annex. Our room was spacious and clean. The staff were nice. Would go there again. Centrally located in town, lots to do within walking distance. Breakfast was included and there was plenty to eat.

This was our first trip to Gettysburg. Loved this hotel/Inn. Great location and clean and friendly. Centrally located also. Would recommend this highly! Pool was very nice, but not heated. Also recommend the Battlefield Tour from the Visitor Center which you do in your own vehicle at your own pace.

My lil Schnauzer has never gone anywhere, we rarely go anywhere, but when we do travel she gets sent to a kennel. My wife didnt want to send her to a kennel this time. Our room was located perfectly for walking our dog. There is a grassy field next to the parking lot in the back (the side we were on), its a very quick walk, you walk around the pool and across the small lot and you're there. The dog walk area has a large waste can to drop your dropping in. The hotel has a really nice presence on the street side, it could be called a Grand Hotel with its towering pillars. Its so close to the heart of town.

If I had to find a gripe if would be difficult. The bathroom was spotless, amazingly spotless. I wandered if the maid staff had a checklist because I could not find a flaw in there. The tub was so white, maybe the bathrooms are new, it seemed like it. So if I had to find a flaw it would be that the tv seemed to show programs in standard def. Yep that is it. Who goes there to watch tv all day, I love the feeling of driving into Gettysburg, it felt so welcoming. I'm so glad we were able to go on the 150th anniversary and thanks for letting us bring Star the Schnauzer with us.

We stayed here for three nights on a motorcycle trip with a group. Gettysburg was our destination and we relied on Tripadvisor recommendations to book here. We weren't disappointed. While this isn't a luxury hotel by any means, it is well above average for the facility that it is. It is extremely well located, within walking distance of a large number of restaurants and shops right in town, and the rooms are above average. The staff was great, and went above and beyond the call of duty to ship some things out for a few of our group, make phone calls or other things. We didn't use the pool, but it looked very nice and was clean. I would definitely recommend this for groups, families, or anyone wanting to spend a few days in Gettysburg.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor in the back are at parking lot level. The parking lot doesn't really...

Walkable to many attractions (especially Jenny Wade House) and town square, convenient to National Park Visitors' Center (must drive/bike here). Staff won points with us for keeping the pool open an hour late so our preschooler could enjoy a special late-night swim in the outdoor pool. Included self-serve breakfast with some "hot" foods. Not as polished and coordinated as a chain hotel--but a good place to stay with a good reputation. Loyalty program for frequent guests.

This hotel is in the heart of Gettysburg, right next to Jenny Wade's House at the edge of the battlefield.. Great breakfast and very nice clean spacious room!! We enjoyed the pool too although it was cold even though it was in the 80's outside. Very refreshing!! Within walking distance to a lot of the downtown stores and shops. Just a short drive to the welcome center and battlefield.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the street so you can see all the little shops.
