We stay here so we do not burden our relative we come to be with. Maybe the 4th year in a row for Christmas Eve. It is very clean and comfortable and the staff is always so nice. It has an elegance to it even tho it was my fiance's grade school! Rooms have great big windows and high ceilings and very modern bathrooms, etc. The one down side is that it has stairs and no elevator. We ask for the first floor which makes that not a problem since I have bad knees. The location is great. A five minute walk to the square of Gettysburg.

Don't stay in the carriage house across the street of the main hotel. There is noisy construction waking you up 7am, multiple dead flies on the window sills & even a live cockroach. We mentioned this to the front desk and they didn't seem to care. The front desk took no ownership and said the onus was on us to ask for the main building from their reservation system. So I thought to let you know. And FPI even doubled charged me for our stay. We stopped by the Gettysburg hotel and it is charming; stay there instead of FPI.

When we decided to visit Gettysburg yet again we thought about changing up our stay. After some research, we fell back on our "Old Faithful." This is probably our fourth year in a row and it seems to get better each time. This year we met "Jim" and "Alex" and were more than pleased with their welcoming hospitality. We were offered a room in the Carriage House and decided to go for something different. This new addition boasts 5 modern rooms with period furnishings and the typical Federal Pointe modern bathroom/shower. Like the main building (the old school house) the place was immaculately clean so kudos to housekeeping. And in case you didn't know, you are in the middle of the battle, just off the main road in from the west. You're a short walk (1/2 mile max) to the town center and a short walk west (1/2 mile max) to Lee's HQ and the Lutheran Seminary on the ridge. A great place to stay.

Very nice place to stay. The room was fantastic, and the amenities were top shelf! Close to down town and area sites! We had a king suite that had a very nice bathroom. The staff was very friendly and accommodating!

My sister and I come to Gettysburg every year to visit our relatives. We usually stay at the Gettysburg Hotel but were intrigued by this hotel and this year, both the price and amenities made this a better option. It was a great choice. The hotel is both beautiful and charming. The decor is elegant and period themed with historical items and pictures. The room was large and spotless. The beds were very comfortable. Linens and towels were of high quality. The bathroom was upscale but could use a shelf under the vanity for placing toiletries. There was a fridge, microwave and coffeemaker, along with coffee tea and complimentary water. I agree with another reviewer that the tea and scones might be better served in the morning as most people are out in the afternoon. We did get a chance to try them one afternoon, and they were delicious, but we were only there at that time because my sister was ill. My sister commented on how much she liked the cozy feel of this smaller boutique hotel. The staff were lovely and accommodating and we were impressed when one mentioned that "it was time to turn the mattresses". This shows the thought that goes into the details. I would have given a 5 star rating if there'd been a chair in our room and a small desk or table. We had to eat in one night and there was nowhere to sit or place the food except on our laps while sitting on the beds. We had a smaller, less expensive room so this may not apply to other rooms. Also, we could hear the footsteps every time the people in the room above us walked around and that got pretty loud at times. Overall it's a lovely hotel, with lovely hard-working staff and we will definitely stay there again.

Typically when we book a hotel it is just a place to sleep while visiting. With the Federal Pointe we felt like we were in a home. Very warm and welcoming. Staff is amazing, the pub is unique (kinda reminds me of a man cave) and food second to none. In the morning we found ourself cleaning our rooms and making the bed because we felt like we were a guest in someones home. When visiting the Gettysburg/Emmitsburg area there will be no other option as far as we are concerned. I've stayed at several different hotels in this area over the years and none comes close to the Federal Pointe. Looking forward to seeing our favorite hosts, Pete and Liz real soon.

This was our second stay here. The first one was two years ago and in the summer and it was very nice, but for the price we felt that we paid for cleanliness. This time we booked because they offered a "2 person jacuzzi tub" that was appealing to our relaxing-planned weekend. FYI it is NOT a 2 person unless the both of you are both 75#. Normal sized, one of you is hanging your leg out of the tub! There is a difference between a jetted soaking tub and a 2 person jacuzzi tub. We also had an issue with room temperature. It was constantly cold in our room; we turned the thermostat up to 80 and got nothing. The housekeeper even checked it to make sure we were working it right. I froze for 2 nights and every moment we were in the room. The lady bugs on the ceiling I guess I cannot blame on the hotel, they were looking for warmth. If you are the type of person who needs quiet and darkness to sleep, this is not the place. Route 30 is busy at all hours and is very noisy, (our room was on the RT 30 side) and the spot lights on the front of the hotel that are on all night come through the windows even if the treatments are closed. We did not sleep well. For $210/nightly, I feel that you are paying for cleanliness. There is not microwave, you get 2 Kcups for coffee and have to walk to the front desk to be given 2 more, apples in a bowl are out for snacks. I think they could at least put out pastries for breakfast considering most hotels now offer continental breakfast at a more reasonable room rate are equally as clean. The scones and tea in the afternoon are pointless, no one is even here, they are all sightseeing. The staff was not friendly, except for the one lady on Sunday morning when we checked out. The older gentleman who kept putting in our credit card information wrong so it kept saying the card was invalid (which is was not and we had just used it to fill up our tank), referred to us as the "couple with the invalid card" when he was on the phone with the manager when I complained about the tub. Of which, she did nothing but argue with me instead of offering a compromising solution. The customer service leaves a lot to be desired. We travel to Gettysburg as least two times a year, if not more. This will be our last stay here.

We were only in Gettysburg for one night, but we enjoyed staying at the Federal Pointe Inn, and wish we were there for a longer period of time. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The woman that checked us in gave us great suggestions and guidance for our time in Gettysburg. I highly recommend.

My two sisters, brother and nephew stayed in the Carriage House and absolutely loved our accommodations. The beds were super comfortable and the rooms were so quiet we rarely heard anything from the outside. Our suite slept five of us and gave us plenty of room. We all hope to return next year for another wonderful stay!

We stayed here for two nights while visiting the area. It was very nice. It has high ceilings and the room was very large. The bathroom was nice and you could see much was updated in the hotel. The carpet was nice and the room clean. The pub in the basement was nice and we ate there the first night. The only glitch was that, upon entry to the room, the AC was running full blast and it had to be near freezing. The boy at the desk turned nobs and one of the two quit but one ran all night. We had to borrow space heater to counter it. A maintenance man the next day, who was painting in the hallway came in took off the front of the unit and turned a switch to shut it off. That solved it. The location of the hotel is close enough to downtown that one could walk if it was not raining and 60 degrees. The scones in the afternoon are a nice lagniappe as well. It was extremely quiet despite being along route 30. I would stay here again for sure.
