Gettysburg Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Enjoyed the stay- great old landmark kept up well with modern touches.

Every time I asked them why they don't have complimentary coffee in the lobby , the staff simply replied you have a coffee maker in your room that's it . You can get a mini fridge on request . They have so many rooms there , I don't know why they don't have a breakfast like in a Marriott residence.

We enjoyed our stay here. Only in town for a quick overnight. Rooms were roomy and staff was friendly and helpful at check-in. Very close to attractions in downtown

The pictures online were nothing close to what we saw in person. Rooms were not updated as they showed...and the bathroom was VERY small for a family of 4. The rooftop pool was not appealing nor kid friendly. The parking structure (where you had to park) was a complete joke. Way too many rules and even when you followed their "rules", you still got a $25 parking ticket for mistakes made by the hotel staff. Not a kid friendly hotel and way over priced. Would have been better staying at a chain hotel. Extremely disappointing.

Very nice hotel in the center of town within a short walk to restaurants, shops, historic sites, and Gettysburg College.

If you're expecting anything "special" about staying at this hotel the. You're wasting your time. This hotel was amazing when it first opened serving 3 star quality food out of a gorgeous dining room that they have since removed into a tv room?? Very tacky. They also used to have really great room service which also is no longer offered.

Nice hotel, nice staff. Room was clean but heat regulation was a challenge. Warm in the middle of the room where the heating vent was blowing and freezing in the bathroom and corner of the room. Other than that, nice place looks recently upgraded.

Awesome. Everything about our stay was fantastic.

Location couldn't be better, directly in the center of town. Comfortable beds, very friendly and helpful staff, clean, convenient parking garage. 10/10, I definitely recommend this place.

Room was wonderful, but you had to pay extra for parking and if you wanted a fridge. For the price this should be included. In house bar and restaurant had very slow service, we left to get food and drinks.

After reserving 22 rooms for a wedding group, to include the wedding suite for my daughter's honeymoon. The staff not only couldn't seem to get things figured out. They gave keys to another couple to her honeymoon suite and after moving her bags to the room, going to the wedding, she came back to dirty diapers, someone had gone through the food and drink left for them, someone's luggage as the hotel had given her room to someone else. Then the staff blamed me for reserving and paying for so many rooms. To be clear, I tried to block rooms early on but the hotel wouldn't allow for it unless we agreed to hold an event in the hotel. Ridiculous! The wedding was on family land. There is no room service, you must pay 10.00 a day for parking, no breakfast. I say stay at Federal Pointe, which offers both. You will be disappointed for sure. I have stayed twice and both times had difficulty with reservations from a third party vendor like Orbitz. Not worth the headache

Had excellent experience and enjoyed our time there

Staying on the front circle is a big mistake. Bright outside all night lights and no shades. Also noise, Was all through the night from circle traffic. Stayed before and still like the place.

Great Location, great food and service . Darrian was a FABULOUS waiter !

Nice room. Great location. Excellent overall experience.

We booked a two night stay last minute and got the hotels last room. It was in the "newer" section of the hotel. Which sounds like something you would want but it was an odd room. Clean and spacious, large bathroom and two queen beds. Room 718. What was or is odd about the room is it has windows around two thirds of the room. These windows are not tall but they are covered with floor to ceiling curtains. Ok not a problem just weird to be surrounded by so much material. Upon opening these curtains we had a view in to the Main Street in front of the hotel. Which would have been amazing except these windows wrapping around the room were absolutely filthy (on the outside) to the point that looking out them was futile. They are strange Windows under ledges and they probably not easily cleaned but it doesn't appear they have not attempted to do so in some time. All rooms on what they call the 7th floor are in this strange addition. It is actually on the second floor of the addition. Which appears to have been a municipal building or bank at some point. To be fair I did not have a chance to ask management about the windows. On our second afternoon I got word that I had a family emergency and needed to return home immediately. The staff at the front desk was kind enough to refund our money for our unused night. My husband and I hope to finish our Gettysburg trip soon. We will definitely stay with them again. We will book a room in the original hotel floors 1-6.

Nice hotel but no free parking, 10 dollars a day.however hotel was in an ideal location

The hotel is in a great location within a short walking distance from everything. The front desk staff was great expecially Andrew. The lobby areas are clean and well maintained. Upon exiting off elevator to my floor I noticed a large stain on the carpet. The rug in the hall leading to my room looked like it could of been vacuumed better. Entering my room I noticed the furniture was dusty, expecially the night stand. This is where the hotel stores the ice bucket as well as some drinking glasses. Nothing stored here could be used. The area here was so dusty I took pictures and went directly to the front desk. I spoke to Andrew S. who I believe is a manager. He was apologetic and did what he could immediately. I understand its an old hotel but this was unacceptable for the amount of money I was paying to stay here. They asked me to email the photos so they could use them as a reference point in addressing the cleaning staff. The next day I had left a note asking for a few more towels which I did receive however the staff left all the dirty ones in the room along with a bag I left near the fridge that was neatly tied ( full of water bottles, juice boxes, wrappers ). The next few days I found myself walking to a barrel at the back exit throwing my trash away. Maybe I am just use to big city hotels. Long story short, would I stay here again? Yes. It's a lovely historic hotel but they really need to focus on the cleaning staff and the level of service they provide

From check-in to check-out staff was less that welcoming and in-attentive at best. Most of the time we were ignored and felt as if we were intruding. Bar staff used profanity with customers as if they were at a beach party. Food in the restaurant was ok at best and over priced. Access to our room with a luggage cart was impossible due to stairs and lack of elevator access. The one bright spot was location---right downtown on the sqaure!!

Wonderful place to stay great service great food rooms clean well maintained in center of town.
