Staff was great and room was very comfortable and clean. Convenient location to walk around downtown to shop and dine. We live out in the country and found the noice from traffic around the square to be annoying through the night, but otherwise had a very pleasant stay.

Hi, This hotel is close to all the local attractions and events. The hotel was just recently renovated and the space is bright and cheery. The one downside was the parking. The parking lot is adjoining to the municipal lot. On busy special event weekends, parking can be difficult.

This was our first time eating at the Grand Ballroom. Traditionally we dined at another Historical Inn. This year, however, we declined because the menu was missing too many items that had been offered other years. This buffet was AMAZING! We got MORE than we paid for! The food was not only delicious but elegant. I have never seen so... More

We really enjoyed the Gettysburg Hotel and will stay here for our future trips. The hotel is beautiful, comfortable and centrally located. The town and hotel were beautifully decorated for Christmas! The staff was friendly and helpful.

The hotel appeared old and tired. The funishings had a second hand store appearance. The carpet was old and worn and just looked dirty. The main lobby was the nicest place in the hotel. Go figure! Looks are definitely deceiving though! I will.look elsewhere for a place to stay the next time I visit.

For a historical 3 night trip we chose this beautiful hotel. Upon entering the hotel we noticed how lovely the lobby was and the staff were pleasant when greeting us. A pleasant surprise to find out that we were checking in during the date Lincoln made his Gettysburg address and there was a celebratory event in the hotel. People dressed... More

We stayed over Thanksgiving. Have never been to Gettysburg before, chose the hotel because of it's location. We were surprised to find that parking is not included in the room rate - and it's $10 for 24 hours. For the price of the room, a voucher would a have been nice. The front desk staff was pleasant. The room was... More

What a pleasant stay! Lovely room, comfortable bed, nice people with easy check-in/out...one could feel the history here. The parking was unfortunately expensive for our taste in such a small town, but that's the cost of tourism!

My family was really looking forward to this meal while we were visiting Gettysburg over Thanksgiving. While the hotel is historic and beautiful the buffet was less than appealing. We had a 1:30 reservation for a party of 5 and were seated promptly although not a very welcoming hostess. We were told nothing about the buffett and were left at... More

Outstanding hotel, lots of history, great staff, wonderful Thanksgiving dinner, and affordable pricing. The Battlefield site is moving and the exhibits are spectacular. Doesn't get any better than this. Looking forward to a return trip one day.
