Two of us stayed Sat night of Memorial Day weekend to see Gettysburg. Found the hotel was teeming with soccer kids noisily running around the lobby, so we thought it was going to very noisy in our king-bed rooms, but that thankfully was not the case. Apparently, we were placed on the side of the hallway away from the soccer families. Extremely clean and well outfitted rooms in all respects. Liked the wall thermostat instead of those annoying swtiches on the cooling / heating system. Fortunately, we came down for breakfast at 8:30 am which was an at least an hour after the restaurant in the lobby was apparently crushed by the thundering hordes. We heard horror stories from the waitress (food was left in plates under the tables) and we had to eat with plastic utensils sicne the silverware was no longer available, but the experience was still fine, and at least relatively quiet. At $9.95 for a full buffet, including a omelette station, I think is reasonable for this hotel class. One blemish is the slowness of the elevator service; 2 elevators are not enough to handle the number of rooms and guests but I believe that insufficiency characterizes many of the Courtyard properties. The Courtyard's location, east of the borough of Gettysburg, appears at first to be relatively remote travel to the battlefield and other sights, but that's only if you take Route 30 West. Instead you get on Route 15 south expressway which you can enter as soon as you leave the property, go 2 exits and that gets you to the visitor's center in about 10 minutes. You avoid all the traffic going through the center of town, and save yourself 15 minutes. Due to the holiday weekend (and maybe the soccer tournament) the room rate was probably higher than normal (not even a AAA discount) so from a value standpoint it doesn't rate an "excellent" but everything else is first-rate.
