“School's in! Great spot”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

This hotel used to be an old school in Gettysburg, but has since been nicely restored to a small boutique hotel. The rooms are huge with very high ceilings. The bathrooms are modern and renovated, and the bed comfortable in our room, 304. They have retained the old school staircases at either end of the building. Reminded me of my hgh school days a little. The staff is friendly and helpful, giving us some ideas on where to eat and what to see. We only stayed the one night, but if time had allowed, we would have stayed longer. The only slight mark against this place, temporarily, is the work they seemed to be doing on a new floor above our room. It was noisy, very early. But a call to reception, and the noise ceased until we checked out. Nice place to stay.

The building is spacious and is covered with impressive paintings of Civil War scenes. The beds are amazingly comfortable. Both Nick (great sense of humour) and Sandy - the hotel staff - were incredibly helpful. They referred us to the Blue Parrot for dinner, which we really enjoyed. The Gettysburg battlefield experience was incredible.

Beautiful rooms and great location.

Under construction. there was no disclosure of this. Very noisy. Evening staff was less than helpful. In fact she was quite rude No too interested in return business I would say.

No air conditioning. We asked several times. She said it was on but it was not. Her response. Should we find you another hotel. We finally opened the window. It did come on the next day.

Said that they would not start working until 9 but really started walking around before 8. Up and down the stairs next to our room. Very loud.

Sort of disappointed

We were looking for a weekend break and found this place online and gave it a try. Great choice. It's a very nice conversion of a school building and offers very comfortable accommodations and a splendid experience. We were very pleased with the staff who were all very gracious and professional. Very comfortable beds, super clean room and bath. Fair price for the quality rec'd.

We recently stayed for 2 nights and were very happy. We had a king suite and it was really nice. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. They arranged for a guide for the park tour, gave great restaurant choices, etc. The location is also great. The feel is very historic with modern bathrooms and a comfortable bed

The only small downside for us was the room was noisy from the trucks on the street. Overall, though, we were very pleased.

Loved this large, modern room in two-year-old renovated of an old school. Tall ceilings, yet top appliances/furnishings. Walk to food and drink and shops in downtown. Book directly with the hotel, not through the Choice reservation system (minor glitch).

A former school. Rooms are large, amenities not up to price tag - no lobby; service indifferent. We only stayed one night, but if we were going to be longer in Gettysburg, we would have moved to another hotel.
