Make sure you reserve a non-smoking room! Smoking room was not acceptable for a family member

TV reception in my room was a little spotty, free breakfast offered was minimal. Other than that, everything was perfect for an overnight stay.

We booked a non-smoking room and and got a smoking room instead (didn't read the fine print on this one). We picked up a bottle of air freshener and made it livable. The beds and room were adequate and the location was good since it was a straight shot into town.

When we arrived, we went to the office to check in and the woman behind the desk asked us our age. Which I understood because my boyfriend and I are young (we're both 19) and could pass for even younger but I wasn't worried because to my understanding all you needed to book a hotel was to be at least 18 and have a credit card. Which we both are/ have. Well this woman proceeded to tell us that they do not rent to anyone under 25. Then she told us that because we had booked though a third party website (this one) we needed to speak to them about a refund and it wasn't their fault that the website had never asked for our age. After a bit of panic, tension and a couple calls to her higher up, we were allowed to stay in the room. Which is good because if we had driven six hours and then we're not granted the room we had already paid for, there would have been an issue. It definitely left a bad taste in my mouth for the motel after that.

1st room was not made or someone was there. The lady gave me a second room. The room appeared clean until I saw 2 roaches in the room. Yikes! I could not wait to leave this place, thankfully I was there only overnight.

Hotel was nice and in a good location. Price was high do to the special events that weekend. All in all it was a good trip.

When we walked in I smelled cigarette smoke; changed rooms. The next day the maid(s) smoked in the room while changing towels while we were gone. Other than that it was liveable.

we specifically searched for a room that would accept pets, this hotel advertised on your site that the first pet was free - $10 fee for second pet - yet upon check in we were told ABSOLUTELY no pets, and they would not refund our fee. They also booked us in a smoking room when we booked non smoking. We had no other recourse but to take turns sleeping in our car with our puppy as the hotel would not let him in our room.

it was ok except the ice machine did not work and had no snack machines

i made this reservation in feb. for july. i requested a nonsmoking room and got a smoking room. i also made the reservation for 2 adults and 3 children. when i arrived i was told it would be an extra $30 a night for my kids. we found another hotel a half hour away and stayed there. i will not stay in this hotel again

rooms were clean - good parking

Booked a Non Smoking Room got a Smoking Room

We were only there from 10 pm to 6 am, so this room met our needs. It was clean and quiet, and that's all we were looking for. certainly nothing fancy.

The hotel is not within walking distance of Gettysburg attractions; you will need to drive to those attractions. Our room request via Orbitz was not what was provided they could not provide a non-smoking roon. We called in advance to arrange for one bag to be held before 11am checkin and they agreed, but upon arrival they refused. The front desk argued with us -- the older man quite adamantly, but the younger (son we presume) was trying. The room was WAY over priced with Orbitz getting a HUGE cut (more than 35%). Call the hotels in the area directly as there are bunches of locally owned and operated hotels that can't get listed on websites. The area is great for tourists -- tons to do especially the battlefields, monuments, food and ghost tours. Not really an enjoyable one night stay at the hotel.

The Country Hearth Inn, Gettysburg, PA was exactly what I was looking for on my brief stay in the Gettysburg area. I didn't spend a lot of time at the motel, as I wanted it booked to sleep at. Mostly, I got in toward evening. It was perfect for me. Room was clean, and the desk attendant was courteous. There were no problems. If I was in the area again, I definitely would like to stay there. It was a good value for me.
