Ghost came to visit me

When i explored this hotel on their website, the junior suite rate was ~$500/night. So when i found it for ~$160/night, i jumped on it. It turns out a junior suite is basically an extended room with a wall separator (probably 6' extension). It made it hard to maneuver a wheelchair. To be fair, the staff suggested a double queen room instead but i chose the junior suite because we were 5. I recently checked their website which now has rates for the junior suites at $142/night. The location is great. It's right in the center of the historic town section with walking access to many restaurants. As for the ghost, I felt a presence next to me on the first night but i guess he got bored and didn't come back for my last night.

The Garryowen Irish Pub. Mussels and fish n chips are awesome. Stay away from the steak. The serve your typically Smithwick and Guiness ales on tap but had a couple nice IPAs on tap as well.

Hotel wasn't as it once was.

Stayed in a junior suite and felt it was a tight fit for three people. The bathroom needed upgrades. Especially, the bathtub and shower. It was rather run down, although, still functional. The restaurant service was slow and food was not cooked as requested. Platter returned after recooked food requested and it took forever. The restaurant was not crowded, so no need for slow service. Pity, there is no longer room service. Years ago, this hotel was upscale and fancy.

There is a lovely Cafe/restaurant a short walk from the hotel and its worth stopping by. Its name is, Cafe Saint-Amand. The Latte is wonderful and the fruit is fresh. The prices are very reasonable too.

Nice Stay and Friendly Staff

I haven't stayed in this particular hotel in over twenty years and it was as pleasant on recent visit as it was back then. The rooms were comfortable and the modern decor was lovely. The room did have a noisy heating system though. The dining staff were friendly. The cost per night was decent when booked through discount site. The room was very clean. Unfortunately, there wasn't room service offered except if you ordered meal by physically going into the dining area. No menu is in any of the rooms. The hotel location is not nearby the Gettysburg Battlefield but near enough to get there without much trouble.

Great Location

We had a two night stay. The hotel restaurant is poor and should be avoided, especially breakfast, which was so bad we never had lunch or dinner there. Great downtown location near numerous restaurants, shops and historic locations. The battlefield surrounds the city so it is very accessible from this hotel.

Don't pass up the Gettysburg Museum of History two blocks south of the hotel. It is the one that was featured on the tv show "American Pickers." Incredible collection of relics from all eras of US history.

Would stay here again!

The room was spacious, clean, and airy, and better than expected. Staff was friendly at check-in. We stayed here to visit Gettysburg College, and you could walk to campus if need be (we drove). Hotel is right smack in the middle of town and near lots of restaurants and shopping. Did not eat here so I can not comment on the food...

Lovely!

My husband and I had a very pleasant two night stay at the Best Western Plus. The staff was friendly and helpful and the room was clean and quiet. A rainy Saturday morning put the dining staff in a bit of a tizzy, but they remained professional and did their jobs well.

Stop by The Ragged Edge for coffee or some terrific baked oatmeal! Sit and write, or read one of the books in the front window. Everyone there is smiling.
