The hotel is right in town and within walking distance of the square. My husband and I visit Gettysburg at least twice a year, mostly day trips. But since it was our anniversary, we decided to spend the night in town. I had never been to this hotel before however passed by it every time we visited. What a nice place! And the complementary breakfast was one of the best!

Room Tip: We stayed in the back of the hotel above the pool on the 5st floor. Since it was February, the pool...

On our return trip from Florida to Ottawa we made it to Gettysburg, Pa and choose to stay at the 1863 Inn of Gettysburg based on its location and its "Street" appeal. The fact that the off season hotel rate was quite reasonable was another reason to stay at this hotel.

The hotel room was excellent...spacious, clean with a good King Bed and bathroom which more then meet our expectations. The breakfast was adequate with plenty of options. The hotel staff member we encountered was pleasant and provided us with helpful advise as to where to eat and what to see while in town.

I would recommend this hotel to those visiting Gettysburg and I definitely would return to this hotel the next time I visit Gettysburg.

My husband and I have made this our regular place to stay. Clean rooms, perfect location and awesome staff! We are headed back in the next week and do not even consider staying anywhere else. We love the spacious rooms and convenience to restaurants and shops. The staff is always friendly and helpful. This place has modern amenities with a beautiful lobby and plenty of information on local attractions.

I am writing this review based on the staff. We stayed here as a group last weekend and came back around 1am. When we were buzzed in (after stating we were staying in room 509) we were playing music off our phone. Maria, the late night attendant at the desk, said to us to turn it off or we will get a noise violation charge. We immediately apologized, turned it off, and headed for the elevator.

When we arrived to our room the phone was ringing before we even opened the door. Maria had claimed that she had received complaints about us being too loud and sternly told us to keep it down. So, within the 2 minute travel time up the elevator and the outside walk on the balcony to our room multiple people called and complained to her that we were being too loud? Aren't noise complaints only linked to your room when the noise is coming from your room?? Nice try, Maria. Nice to know that this place has some "honest" staff working here, we'll be staying at hilton next time.

I am sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your visit. Maria is a very efficient employee. Her main concern is the comfort and satisfaction of every guest. She had received several complaints regarding noise. She not only called your room-she called all the rooms in that area to advise our guests that if they had an issue to contact the desk and to also advise them that she had received complaints regarding noise. She was not aware of which rooms had been the cause of the noise. Therefore she was contacting all of the rooms. She did exactly what she has been instructed to do. We want every guest to enjoy their stay and have a good time, but we also must address any complaints that are brought to our attention. If she seemed a bit harsh I do apologize. Our employees certainly do not enjoy making those calls and they realize that not everyone will be happy with the outcome, however, it is their responsibility to keep control of the situation. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss the matter further.

Thank you,

First stayed here in October 2011 and we've come back to stay on every visit since then. We've stayed in both a standard room and suite. Fantastic location that's close to everything. The rooms are very spacious, as are the bathrooms. The continental breakfast was great with many options so we made sure to fill up every morning before we went out. We loved the place so much that we joined the Loyalty Rewards program since we refuse to stay anywhere else.

For probably the fouth time in six years, we chose to stay at the 1863 Inn for two nights over the New Year's Eve holiday. Since our last stay stay two years ago, we can only repeat positives regarding friendliness of staff, warm, welcoming lobby, decorated for the holidays, very reasonable cost, and, again, location, location given numerous sights and services all within walking distance.We always choose to stay on the top floor, street side for a nice view of the town. We had adjoining rooms with our good friends, and it appeared both bathrooms were recently renovated.The facility as a whole is well maintained. A continental breakfast is served but we always avail ourselves of the Avenue Restaurant directly across the street for an excellent breakfast. (See separate review.)

Room Tip: Noted above we stayed street side, top floor, for our NYE visit. I imagine in the middle of the summ...
