“Cool place to stay”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

Researched thoroughly before booking reservation. Did not disappoint our entire stay. This is an old school that has been completely updated and modernized into a beautiful hotel. The staff was friendly and the rooms were beautiful and large (awesome high ceilings!). We will definitely stay there again!

From the beautifully landscaped grounds to the details in the common areas and rooms, everything here has been considered down to the smallest detail. This building retains its charm as an old school and the owners have done a wonderful job keeping many of the original details (such as the chalkboard behind the check-in desk and the transom windows). The windows are reminiscent of the old school and the original architect's name can be seen in the stone entrance. We were greeted as we approached from the parking lot and Sandy at the front desk showed us right to our room. She pointed out many of the details of the old school as well as the beautiful civil war artwork done by a local artist. We were lucky enough to have room 205 which has an extra sitting room that just happens to be the original front entrance to the school. So cool! Every afternoon they have tea and scones in the main hallway and yesterday they even had a cake to celebrate their first anniversary in business. At checkout today, I met the owner who wanted to be sure we had enjoyed our stay. The only downside to our stay (because this is an old building) is the sounds you can hear occasionally from other rooms. The guests above us woke us up at about 2:30am as they kept walking around their room and I could hear the guests in the next bathroom this morning. Overall though, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and will recommend it to anyone visiting Gettysburg.

Room Tip: Room 205 has the extra sitting room that used to be the front entrance of the school.

The Federal Pointe is an old school converted into an inn. We stayed on the second floor in a classroom. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly. Parking was free and there were plenty of spaces. It is close to downtown, but there are no shops or restaurants in the immediate vicinity. We would definitely stay there again. A suggestion for the hotel would be to offer a continental breakfast.

This was the way to stay in Gettysburg! Right from the start, pulling into the parking lot, we knew we made the right choice. The staff was super friendly and very helpful. We stayed in the basement "Honeymoon suite" and it was AWESOME! We had the entire floor to ourselves! The room was huge! Everything was new and so well done, but still had the historic feel that let you know you are in an old building. The facility it self was just amazing as well. Very short walk to food and bars, and not a long drive to get anywhere. I recommend staying here for sure!

Room Tip: Ask to stay on the top floor, corner room, to get a good view of the town! They have King rooms tha...

Spent 2 nights at this hotel during the 150th Battle of Gettysburg "bash". The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. Constantly making sure everything was OK, or even just to chat for a few. There are only 18 rooms, so it is very intimate and cozy - and we loved that. The building was originally a school, and the ceilings are 12 or 14 feet high, so you never felt claustrophobic. Not to mention the rooms are very generous in size. Just slightly off the main square of town, it is much quieter than other "downtown" hotels, but not far away like some of the big chains. I will absolutely stay here again.

So glad we chose this place. Great location, warm clean rooms, very friendly and helpful staff. It was close enough to the main visitor center but far enough away for a respite from the crowds. Would definitely go back.

It is a nice and charming hotel, well located central in town and close to the historical areas.
We had a 2 queen bedroom - very big of size.
However we had a problem with the aircon, which could not be turned 100% off - so we were freezing all night.
