“Wonderful room, excellent location”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

We spent 3 nights in this hotel. The room was large, clean, bright and comfortable. Super location, close to restaurants and shops. Staff was helpful, friendly and well informed. Would stay here again and again.

Room Tip: ask to be overlooking the circle.

The hotel's location was ideal, as we were able to walk just about everywhere. The room was clean and met our needs (we stayed in a king suite with 4 adults and 2 kids). The suite had 2 bedrooms and a central living/sleeping area that we used for the kids. It really was a perfect set-up for our family. Minimal gripes: The rooftop pool was just ok...I believe we all had grand images, and it was just very average (large, rubbermaid trash/towel cans, etc..). A final word, plan to spend a lot if you're going to have any meal at the hotel. No complimentary breakfast here, and "One Lincoln" is very pricey. There are plenty of options in town, however, so it really didn't impact us much. All-in-all, our stay was terrific, and we would likely stay there again.

Hotel was very nice. Front desk not very friendly. Felt like asking them info was a bother to them. Love the way the bathroom is seperated, shower and stool in one room, sink separate area. Great for family to get ready quickly. Room was kind of small but very nice. Very clean, loud a/c but never heard outside or other room sounds.

I was part of a wedding at this hotel. I must say everything, from the flow of events for the wedding, to the service from the staff at the hotel, were flawless. The events coordinator (Megan) was wonderful. Room prices are up there, and having to pay the parking garage was a bit of a deterrent, but overall I was satisfied with my stay.

Rooms were comfortable. Staff were friendly. Rooms were clean. Our rooms did not have refrigerators. One would expect a few "extras" for the price. I e. Bottled water/snacks etc. I felt the accommodations were overpriced.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have refrigerators.

This was my 3rd stay at the hotel and once again it was excellent. Rooms and lobby very clean, staff friendly and personally the location can't be beat being on the square. Less than 10 min drive to battlefield and all the shops in walking distance.

Stayed at the Gettysburg Hotel, and had a wonderful time. We had room 616, which is right on the top floor facing the square. King size bed with jacuzzi bath. From our room we faced the David Wills home where President Abraham Lincoln stayed. Facing the square the noise level can be quite high,but not annoying. The hotel is very clean and of modern necessities even though it was an original "older times tavern" from 1797. There is a roof top pool for cooling down after a day out touring. Parking is convenient right behind the hotel for $10 a day or .75 cents an hour. From the hotel you can walk around the square and enjoy many local restaurants. A great place to stay.

Room Tip: Top floor.
