Reviewed 14 July 2014

The hotel is centered in the small downtown core and everything is walking distance from here. Beautiful old hotel built in 1767 has been nicely refurbished. A little pricey but we were there for the July 4 celebrations and battle reenactments.

Good variety for meals and entertainment. Friendly staff.

I've just returned home from an unforgettable trip to Gettysburg. The hotel was the starting and ending point of our mini vacation and was great from start to finish. The front desk staff was polite and professional. And walking through the common areas I was repeatedly greeted by all sorts of hotel staff. I believe what appeared to be a dishwasher and cook? even said hello to us in the hallway. I was very impressed with the room also. Everything was great! A sure stop on any visit to Gettysburg!

Our stay at the historic Gettysburg Hotel made our trip to Gettysburg delightful. The hotel is located in the heart of Gettysburg. The rooms were beautiful and the staff very accommodating after some confusion about our reservation. Staff provided helpful guidance on good restaurants. This was a college trip combined with a day of touring historic Gettysburg. I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Rooms in the front have street noise.

The hotel is in the center of town, within a short walking distance to the best-rated restaurants and historic attractions of Gettysburg. Our room was spacious and clean, our two double beds were comfortable, wi-fi was free, parking was $10/day right around the corner, and hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. Also, from our bedroom window, we had a great view of the 4th of July fireworks. We had a wonderful stay.

Have stayed here many times but this was the first as the renovated hotel. It is now owned by Gettysburg College and the whole hotel has been changed to reflect this. I felt as though I needed to have an allegiance to Gettysburg college to be there. While the staff are polite and respectable the service now seems to lack hotelier hospitality. I informed the staff on check in this was a repeat visit for me and they did not care. I really like the location since it is within walking distance to many attractions but I will need to think about staying here again. It is not as family accommodating in spirit as it was in the past.I asked for a late check out just by 30 minutes and this was rejected. It was going to be allowed but with a tone of nearly scolding me for not being on time. Not rudeness; just that I should know better or something along those lines. The rooms do not have enough electric outlets which is why I rated it 3.

It was worth the extra costs since we are in the middle of town and walking distance to restaurants, shops and very convenient self-parking. We were on the 6th floor with a great view of the July 4 fireworks. Big room with comfortable queen sized beds with free internet access.
