Our final day in Manhattan on Friday began with an early morning departure -- many tired eyes & the carnage of bags all over the hotel hallway. After breakfast, we took a trip to Central Park for a nice walk -- a beautiful day indeed.

Marched in on the Baltimore Pike

Today was a super-lazy afternoon. I picked up my rental car in Baltimore and drove out to Gettysburg without looking at a clock once. I made terrible time and it was awesome.

When I got to Gettysburg Battlefield, I just about went nuts. Over the last month I watched all of Ken Burns' The Civil War as well as the movie Gettysburg (Sam …

A cooler night so we slept well and woke about 8 and got up at 8.30. Gabrielle was already up and had done our washing. Coffee and Krispy Creme for breakfast.

Gabrielle mowed the lawn with a ride on mower.

I spent the morning doing blogs. None of us had any energy to drive anywhere. Gabrielle had a nap on the couch. We had a scratch lunch of leftovers from yesterday's picnic as well as doggie bags from ...

    Terrible Service

    from

    I have stayed in this hotel for many years. It is nothing special, but it is near the battlefield and fairly comfortable. Over the last several years making a reservation has become more and more difficult. No matter how far in advance you call nothing is available. If you call 2 or 3 times you eventually get exactly what you want. And, trust me, this hotel is not booked up 3 months early except on special weekends. This year I decided one try only, and if its the same run around, then I'll stay somewhere else. Well you guessed it, although I asked to speak to the manager, she was too busy to speak to a paying longtime customer. Well I'm off to different hotel for my trip this year.

    Horrible experience

    from

    I arrived to find that my room was not ready at 6:00 p.m. that night. When I finally was allowed into my room, I walked in to find the place smelling like dog urine with a perfume covering it up. There was a dog show prior to my arrival and the dog had the best of the room. When I attempted to open the sliding glass door I found further droppings of the dog outside on the patio which further added to the smell. The hotel kept saying it was not their fault. When I complained they kept stating it was not that bad. Finally I took the manager into the room and she gagged and then gave me another room. The room given to me was quite old and only had a Murphy bed. At the restaurant I waited 1.5 hours for my food which arrived late and did not give me bread as per the menu. I would not stay here again as I was extremely disappointed. Management accepted no responsibility and kept saying it was not their fault. Who's fault is it then?

    Checked in-- and immediately checked out

    from

    We went into the room and I immediately noticed the musty, old smell. The room/furnishings were dark. Room was in desperate need of being updated. Found some dead bugs on the window sill. Left the room and went back to the front desk and asked for a refund which I was given. Never even unloaded the car!

    An OK Place to Stay

    from

    I stayed here Memorial Day weekend during a soccer tournament. I appreciated that this hotel will accomodate our soccer group since we tend to be loud and unruly. Kids love to run in the hall. They also occupy the entire pool making it difficult for other quests to enjoy their stay.

    Ok but not great

    from

    We stayed here after cancelling our reservation at the Quality Inn. It really needs some updating. I couldn't believe there were plastic covers on the mattresses. We ended up taking them off. The staff was nice and the pool felt great after a day at Gettysburg.

    Okay place to stay

    from

    Rooms seemed clean, bathroom was a good size. The hairdryer in the room has a hose, so it smells like a you are drying your hair with a vacuum cleaner. Would bring your own hair dryer. Asked for a late check out when we checked in at 1 in the morning and were told we would have to ask a manager in the morning, we didn't like that too much, since most hotels can answer that at check in time. The bed was covered in vinyl that you could hear every time you moved, but it assured us the bed was clean. We felt this was an okay place to stay, definately overpriced when considering value. Not sure if we would stay there again.

    Fabulous!!

    from

    This hotel is by far the most comfortable I've ever been to. The rooms are spacious, the beds are comfortable (high off the floor, which I like), and most important, VERY CLEAN! In addition, the price is much better than the hotels that are right in town, even cheaper than some of the ones that are very run-down. I fully intend to stay in this hotel again when I return to Gettysburg.

    Lovely hotel

    from

    My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend. We found the entire hotel to be wonderful. Nice lobby, good restaurants and great rooms. Also, there was an amusement center on the property. Probably great for kids in season.

    The drive into town is about 4 miles. Not bad at all. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would not hesitate to stay here again.

    Quiet, clean, great service, good food, great value, close to Boyd's Barn

    from

    I always find the room and services to be outstanding. Closest hotel to Boyd's Barn.

    Super

    from

    Lovely hotel now called the "Eisenhower Inn" and is located on Steinwehr Avenue. Beautifully appointed with attractive and super-clean rooms. Only suggestion I have for them is to give their front desk staff a little lesson in friendliness. They were a little offhandish with us which is sort of miserable when you are spending $98 US a night.
