Historical Traveler Reviews Eisenhower Hotel & Conference Center Gettysburg
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.
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
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
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.
The rooms were very clean, considering the fact that the building we were staying in was rather old. I believe the other building is newer. The indoor pool was nice. The hotel was very accomodating in providing us ice when we exhausted all the ice machines to fill our coolers. The rooms were a bit pricey (about $150/night with taxes). However, we were close to the center of G-burg and close to Mount St. Mary's where all the soccer fields were located.
The grounds were nice. There is a little sports complex next to the hotel. It gave the kids something to do in the evening. Our team also rented a pavilion from the sports complex for $100. We had a nice cookout on Saturday evening.
If I were a regular traveler, I would probably avoid Mem Day w/e because of the tournament. Other travel days would be fine.
Ok but not great
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
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.
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.
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
I always find the room and services to be outstanding. Closest hotel to Boyd's Barn.
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.

Today the plan is, after we finish breakfast, we are going to get our photos taken using original photography equipment back from the civil war era. We will be dressed according to the period. After that, we will grab lunch to go and head down via Skyline Drive thru the mountains. Due to the weather in Charleston, SC we are no longer heading that way. We will be making our way to Knoxville, TN. Or as close as we can. Today is mostly going to be a driving ...
... the main part of the museum seeing a variety of artifacts and small short videos. You could really spend a long time there, but after spending 2 hours on a guided tour and 30-45 mins with the movie, the museum part just reiterated everything again. We spent about another hour there.
Around 12:30 we finally heading out back to the city of Gettysburg for lunch. We ate at supposedly the second best Irish pub in the ...
Woke up this morning and boy are we sore. Who would have thought just driving for 7+ hours would do that. We are about to grab breakfast and then make the 30 min drive to Gettysburg to meet with our guide. Our guide is to provide a 3 hour history tour of Gettysburg and the surrounding area. Should be a learning experience. Then off to lunch and maybe the museum and/or a visit to the Amish country. That's still up in air. Anyways off we go until the next ...
... days that the battle included. After all that, I can't imagine being there at that time and really appreciate the courage all those soldiers showed. By the time I finished the tour, it was 6:00 pm and I had to make a choice on my next move. I decided to head up to Boston, but being a seven hour drive from Gettysburg and running on five hours of sleep, I decided to find a place along the way to stop for the night. Allentown, Pennsylvania was about 2 hours east ...
... with the exceptions of the monuments erected to give the tourist something to look at and take photos of. The park is huge and would take all day, or possible two, to hike around the entire park. My advice, take or rent a bike and ride the trails. It is possible to drive from outlook to outlook, but parking often becomes a problem. Unless you're a Civil War Historian, I strongly recommend hiring ...
