The location is the key for this hotel. It is in a great spot, near the battlefield, near restaurants and within walking distance of the downtown (square) area. The hotel itself is dated but it's clean, the service is good, employees are courteous. There's plenty of parking, they have a pool too. I like the hotel and would return. I've... More

This hotel is right in town, walking distance to dinning, historical sites and some of the battle field. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and the breakfast was good. We will stay there again. The staff was friendly and made our stay pleasant.

For quite a good rate through Hotwire, my daughter and I stayed for two nights at the 1863 Inn. It's a bit dated (not in an historical sense), but nonetheless a very good stay for us. It is within walking distance of all the restaurants and downtown sights (including wine tastings!!) and even close enough to walk to portions of... More

I stayed at the 1863 with a friend for one night. The room was clean and comfortable. The location can't be beat for the price, and the continental breakfast was slightly better than the standard chain hotel spread.

Stayed one night. Layout is a bit awkward, and the place is nothing to look at, but my room was nice and clean. Lack of usb ports or outlets at the bedside was annoying.
