Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Gettysburg
Ranked #15 of 28 Hotels in Gettysburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 July 2013

I'm rating the Country Inn "average" based on the room rate of $284.00 for a double queen with a sleeper sofa. (Of course the rates were high due to the 150th celebration). The hotel was clean, the staff was friendly, and the location was good. Our room was adequate, however it was in need of some updates(mainly the old, small TV)and a fresh coat of paint. The beds were comfortable and we all got a good nights sleep-very quiet location as well. A free breakfast was included and there was a nice selection of hot breakfast foods that changed daily. Coffee and cookies were available in the lobby at all hours.

Stayed: July 2013

Great queen sized suite with comfortable beds. Having an extra sink in the bar area and extra mirror was great when several people are in the room. Breakfast had nice selection, but the room was quite small for the number of people coming through. Pleasant front desk personnel and overall good experience. Would return.

I had never stayed at a Country Inn & Suites before so wasn't sure what to expect. Overall, I was very pleased with our experience and will most likely stay at the hotel again. The front desk people were helpful and friendly. Our room, on first floor was quiet and comfortable. True, the room does not have a fridge or microwave but it's not a big deal if you are only staying one night. Pantene shampoo and conditioner are provided in the bathroom and also a Vaseline lotion which is nice. Breakfast was good...they had eggs, oatmeal, potatoes, cereal, bread and real plates and silverware are a nice touch. The hotel is within walking distance of a TGI Fridays, movie theatre, 7-11, and outlet mall.

The only drawback was the pool was closed while we were there.

Rooms seemed a bit expensive considering ours was not a suite and didn't even have a small frig or microwave like some other chains do. Room was clean, and we slept well. There were either very quiet people here (and there were young children on the floor) or nicely insulated walls and floors which made for restful sleep. Breakfast was normal. Staff was not rude, but they did not appear to be as friendly as I like which kept me from asking questions - but it was the 150th anniversary week so I am sure they were very busy. We enjoyed leaving all the crowds of town to drive a few minutes here where it was quieter and had the outlet stores to visit. Would stay again, especially if rates are lower out of season.

This hotel is the perfect choice when visiting Gettysburg Battlefield. The property sits near the entrance to an outlet mall that includes a movie theater and TGIF restaurant a stones throw from the hotel. This was perfect for our visit. My wife had an opportunity to do some shopping while the kids and I could catch a movie. Having a TGIF right there was super convenient.
The hotel itself looks very nice on the outside but could use some updates. The beds were noticeably not as comfy as the Hampton Inn and HI Express properties we stay at. The room also had a strange musty wet smell like some chemical cleaning products were used. The elevator seemed very slow to get to our floor. Don't know why since not many people seemed to use it.
The complimentary breakfast was ok. I was a bit disappointed that there were no eggs the morning we were there. There was French toast and make your own waffles.
Overall the hotel itself was average during our visit but the location was great.

Our overall experience at The Country Inn & Suits in Gettysburg was generally okay, but there were some issues.

The Good:
The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The location next to the outlet mall was great - especially when my husband needed to buy a tie at the last minute! It was nice to have TGIF across the parking lot for family gatherings at the bar. The hotel is also a short drive from all the historical sites of Gettysburg and is a very convenient base for exploration.

The Not So Great:
There was a big water leak outside the pool area with a garbage can full of water underneath the leak collecting the water - better than water on the floor, of course, but a little unsettling.

There were no towels in the pool area and when I went off in search of towels, the laundry worker apologized for being too busy to bring towels to the pool and seemed very overwhelmed by the amount of laundry she was dealing with. She was courteous and kind, but the interaction was also unsettling. If you know the hotel is fully booked, perhaps you need a second person in the laundry?

The hot tub was barely luke warm. It should have been renamed the cool tub.

Our king suite reaked of cat. I know that the hotel is pet friendly, however I was still surprised by the cat odor in the room. Other family members also remarked on the odor in our room, but the hotel was too full for us to be able to change our room. If you are allergic to cats, a pet friendly hotel is probably not the best choice, but it was the hotel for the wedding party, so we tolerated the odor.

Overall a good, but not great, stay.

Room Tip: Check the room for pet odors before you accept it.

When we planned our vacation to historic Gettysburg, we researched all local hotels and chose to stay here due to the availability of a room with a private, in-room jacuzzi for two, proximity to all nearby attractions, and because of previous satisfactory experiences staying at Country Inn and Suites.
Clean, quiet, comfortable, spotless ground-floor room. Big, thick, plush, comfortable king-size bed and pillows. Heat and A/C, cable color TV with remote control, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer, free WiFi, and plenty of hot water. Indoor heated pool, whirlpool and gym. Free hot breakfast with lots of fresh food from which to choose. Free parking. Quiet, comfortable, restful sleep. Minutes to all Gettysburg attractions and shopping.
We prefer to stay at Country Inn and Suites due to their high standards, quality, and private in-room jacuzzis, and this facility is exceptional. We stayed 3 nights and were very pleased!
