This is a lovely "old" (well 1890 ish!) house that once was a school but has now been tastefully re-furbished as a boutique hotel. I received a warm welcome from the Handyman (who showed me where to park) and the lady at reception. My room was large and tastefully furnished room with (oh Joy of Joys after a week of showers!) a huge Jacuzzi bath. Lovely fluffy towels, quality toiletries, soft comfortable bedding and nice touches like lemon water on tap from a samovar in the hall and fresh scones served every afternoon f.o.c. I am happy to recommend this hotel.

Beautiful hotel, wonderful staff! The suite was breathtaking. We will stay there again when we are in Gettysburg! We were celebrating our 29th Wedding Anniversary. We had never stayed at this hotel and it was simply marvelous. We sat on the porch and enjoyed the breeze. We were so relaxed. Hated to come back home.

Alex at the front desk was exceptional! He did everything in his power to make sure our stay was exactly what we'd hoped for. Comfortable beds, spotless well appointed room, & great staff! If you're coming to Gettysburg & want a quality room in a good location, this is it.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for one night after our bucket list trip to the battlefield. We had a king suite which was clean, had great blackouts, and a very comfortable four poster bed. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful with directions. We chose this hotel based on previous reviews and the fact that it is centrally located, but in a quieter part of town. We would highly recommend staying at this hotel when you decide to visit Gettysburg.

I expected a little more from this hotel, based on the reviews I had read here before booking it. The room was very clean and tidy, so no worries there. However, both the main room and bathroom were very poorly lit, the bathroom so much so that I had to purchase a hand-held mirror to use in the main room next to he window in order to see well enough to do makeup. The bed was OK, not the most comfortable, though. The TV was pretty small for the size of the room as well. Also, some of the extra touches were missing - no danish or bagels for breakfast, poor quality toilet paper and tissues, and we had to request extra towels. Also the armchairs were very uncomfortable. The staff we met were very friendly and accommodating, but I can only rate this hotel as average.

We stayed at the Federal Pointe Inn for a two day visit to Gettysburg. We had considered the Gettysburg Hotel but were concerned about parking and downtown noise. The Federal Pointe Inn was just a mile or so from downtown and was a beautiful property inside and out. Nice landscaping, easy parking, a big covered front porch with seating outside. The Inn is beautifully decorated and the rooms are very large and comfortable with high ceilings and lots of wainscoting. Extremely helpful, friendly staff. Everything was immaculate. We were very happy with our hotel choice.

This hotel is full of character and the mini-suite we had was wonderful in most ways. The hallways are grand and the old school seems to reverberate its post-civil war history. The ceilings are high and the rooms large. Nice Civil War artwork and old school photos throughout the property and in the rooms. The restoration and conversion of this building was very well done (beautiful) as this can be very challenging to do right. Parking is plentiful. The large bathroom and shower area were extraordinary. This is an old school (literally and figuratively) hotel intended for the tourist. Not enough outlets for the modern traveler and not in the right locations (like near the bed). The exercise facility was an after thought. It is what appears to be a spare room in the basement with a couple pieces of equipment and other stuff being stored. Worse it claimed to open at 8:00 am. Most travelers I know like to exercise before 8:00 am. I cheated and used the stationary bicycle (quietly) one day at 7:00 am and ran outside the second day. No breakfast here but there is a fridge in the room and a restaurant right next door open for breakfast (which we did not try). There is bar and limited menu restaurant in the basement (we didn't find it intriguing enough to sample). The location is a 5 to 10 minute walk to downtown and an excellent selection of eating options, pubs and shops. The location is at a cross roads (as it was in Civil War days) and I was surprised at the number of trucks that traveled by the hotel. Some noise but it was not excessive or disturbing. The beds and some of the furniture were not firm enough for my back (compared to other hotels) and the main room would have benefited from a chair to sit in while dressing. Service was accommodating. Overall, I am very glad we stayed here and would do it again, but it would not be my usual type of travel lodging as it lacks too many modern conveniences that the hotel chains routinely offer.

It was a pretty good hotel, and the beds were comfortable and clean. The bathroom, however, had no fan, and there is no breakfast provided. The staff was friendly. Good if you like old fashioned hotels.

This is a beautiful, well-run boutique hotel, in an quiet, convenient location (within downtown Gettysburg), but if you booked based on the allure of the "school-themed" main building (which is charming), be aware of the following: The hotel just opened up an "extension" which they call a "carriage house" directly across its parking lot on an adjacent property (actually, it's simply a large historic residence converted to hotel rooms.). These rooms are just as nice as the rooms in the main building, but you may be philosophically a little disappointed, and the Choice Hotels reservation website makes no mention or distinction of these rooms when you book your reservation. To be clear, this is not a complaint, because these rooms meet all of the standards and amenities as stated in the reservations, but if you want a "school room", you need to call the hotel directly at the Gettysburg number and specify that you want to be in the main building. Also, I think it is a little odd that they do not offer a continental breakfast. Their ground floor bar area would seem to be a natural location for such an amenity.

Just a wonderful place to stay, especially if you are coming to see the historic battlefield park. The hotel is old school, rooms are individually decorated and have older furniture, four poster beds, and the like. Civil war memorabilia is everywhere. Rooms are clean and spacious. The grounds are immaculately kept with beautiful flowers everywhere. Free coffee and free water is always a plus, too many hotels that charge more than this one never offer it. Internet is also free and quite efficient. The staff is friendly and helpful. I think I am one of trip advisors' tougher reviewers but this hotel is just the style I like. Well done to the staff and owners
