Perfect location. You are right in the middle of all the attractions. Lots of quaint shops, restaurants and museums all within walking distance so you can leave the car at the hotel. Free breakfast in am as well

I suprised my husband for his 65th birthday with a trip to Gettysburg. We stayed at the 1863 Inn in Gettysburg. The location was perfect within distance to everything. The staff at the Inn were pleasant, helpful and breakfast (which is included) was good. Something for everyone. I would return to this Inn for sure on my next trip to Gettysburg. I highly recommend to stay at 1863 Inn of Gettysburg.

Located right in the town of Gettysburg, one would hope there would be some effort to communicate the historical significance of the place.

The breakfast buffet was very ordinary. There were microwave everything, not a fresh bagel in the place.

Room Tip: We stayed in the back and it was quiet.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. The information you provided was a bit vague. I am not sure what issues you may have had except for the price and the breakfast selection. You stayed with us during July which is the busiest month of the year. Our rates are right in line with the other hotels in town. Our rooms are well appointed, clean and comfortable. As for the Free Breakfast, we offer a nice selection of items that are quick and easy. The majority of our guests want something fast so they can enjoy the battlefield and the town. For those that want something more extensive there are many restaurants within walking distance. As for conveying the "historical significance of the place" I feel that we do that quite well with the many beautiful civil war prints that adorn the walls of the lobby and public areas of the hotel. I do hope that you found your room to be clean and the staff friendly. Hopefully you will visit us again, perhaps in the off season when the rates are much lower. Have a wonderful summer.

I have been here three times & all 3 times were great. They were very helpful, friendly, clean & accommodating to my daughter who was only 1 at the time & also when we went and I was pregnant with my second child. The breakfast buffet is the greatest I have ever seen in any hotel & I've traveled a lot. I always recommend this place as it is not only perfect, the staff & location are perfect as well!

Had a wonderful family reunion at 1863 Inn of Gettysburg. Staff were very helpful and accommodating. Great location; able to walk to many sights and restaurants. Rooms are basic but come with refrigerators and are very clean. Nice pool area. Would definitely consider a return visit or using it as a future venue for family gatherings. (Lovely room available for rent on the premises and staff will work with you to arrange catering; meal was delicious!).

Room Tip: Quiter rooms in the back of the hotel facing pool. Rooms in front are on the main street but have a...

What sets it apart is it's location, within walking distance of the entire downtown area, multiple restaurants, tourist sites and tour starts. Unless you're looking for luxury or a romantic setting, the 1863 Inn should be at the top of your list.

This hotel is in a perfect location for seeing Gettysburg. We walked up the hill to get the tour bus and to the cemetery and the battlefield there. Walk to town, shops, restaurants, and other museums. Pool was an added plus. Everything well maintained. The young woman at reception was professional and polite and helpful.
Breakfast basic.
would recommend to travelers to Gettysburg

Room Tip: get a room in the back off the street free parking is a plus
