    Historical Traveler Reviews 1863 Inn of Gettysburg

    Pet Friendly Means Every Room!!


    The rooms in the front are subject to a lot of street noise and it is very hard to sleep with all the traffic. We ask to move to the back and they found another room. I could smell something in the room but thought it was coming from the street.

    We were not aware untill check out the next day that all rooms are availably for pets. Our understanding in the past was that some rooms are available for pets the same as smoking and non smoking. We were informed that this is not the case in this motel.

    We were also told that they had more problems with soccer players then dogs.

    I would not have selected this motel at the rate $118.00 per night, had I understood their policy on pets. I enjoy pets and I have pets but I do not sleep in the same room with them.

    I think this policy needs to be clearer to all guest up front.

    Great Location , Great Hotel!


    My daughter and I just returned from our first trip to Gettysburg yesterday. We spent 4 days there. After careful research and planning for our little trip I had made reservations for another hotel in the area. {But that is another story in itself !!} After things did not work out at the other motel we were in a serious BIND to find another place to stay.

    I remember that ALOT of the hotels/motels were booked up solid during our stay on the internet.

    Thank goodness the first place I stopped happened to be the "Holiday Inn Battlefield". They were more than kind and considerate of our bad circumstances, and we were in luck, because they had one room left. Right across from the pool! My daughter really appreciated this.

    Now you are definitely paying for the location. It is central to everything, we walked to dinner all 3 nights we were there. We walked to the little shops, and attractions, and we were right across the street from a "Rita's Ice Cream" stand. You are right next door to the battlefield, and cemetary. The hotel is right next door to the Jenny Wade house/musuem, and they offer Ghost Walks.

    Now for the actual hotel itself, I have no complaints about the rooms at all. Everything was very clean, the pool area was immaculate. But for the restaurant and food. There is no continental breakfast offered, and breakfast got to be a little bit expensive every morning. Not alot of selections offered for dinner or their breakfast. Did not care for their dinner though!!!!

    Now I would definitely stay here again. Maybe in the off-season when the rates are not as high. Cannot complain!!

    Terrific hotel for families!


    I was pleasantly surprised with the conditions of this hotel in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. First of all, we used accumulated points for these rooms and we had absolutely no problem at all doing this! A nice thing indeed! With 6 family members (2 adults and 4 boys), we needed 2 rooms and they were spacious, clean, and conveniently adjoining. The pool was clean and large. The restaurant was clean, ample portions of food, kids-eat-free promotion was terrific, and the service was great. Ask for a top-floor room with a view over Gettysburg and you'll get to see a great sunset. The only downside is the street noise, but for a Friday night it really wasn't too bad. The location is next to the Jennie Wade House (small museum and gift shop), on Baltimore Street with a number of cute shops and souvenir stores nearby. I would not only stay in this particular hotel again, I would recommend it to any of my friends who were visiting Gettysburg with ther families!

    Not worth it for the money!


    This hotel has clean rooms and nice staff. It is in a prime location to everything and the pool was very clean and very well maintained. However, we paid $128.00 a night and got very little in return other than a basic room. The "complimentary" paper was actually a charge to the room unless you specified that you didn't want it. There was no continental breakfast. No one offered to help us with our luggage when we arrived. Upon checkout there were other customers in line with a list of complaints that we somehow avoided. You should investigate the numerous bed and breakfast houses around this same area which we found out later were actually cheaper in some cases and included a nice breakfast.

    Stay here frequently


    This is a nice hotel...it's that simple. The staff is friendly and helpful; the rooms large and clean, pretty typical though of this type of hotel. When there isn't a special event happening in town, the rates are good, but oh, do they fly up when there is an event. Still, it is right in town, and you can easily walk to the cemetery and part of the battlefield. Keep in mind, the whole town is a battlefield! I recommend this hotel, esp for the convenient location. We've stayed there perhaps four times now, and will stay there again.

    Oh, except for breakfast, we've never eaten there. And the breakfasts are no great shakes. Not bad, but not special. Go across the street to THE AVENUE for great cheap food.

    Very nice place!


    Actually, I originally intended to stay at another hotel outside of town during my overnight stay. But, having been in Gettysburg many times without walking around the city itself, I changed my mind. And, I am glad I did.

    The hotel is a very nice place and has probably gone through some recent renovation. The room and bathroom were very sizable and the bed was really soft and clean. The hotel staff was one of the best I've met, too - they even called me to see whether the room was ok. The only real problem I had was the lack of television stations, although it did have Starz (a minor problem, but one nonetheless).

    It is nicely located on historic Baltimore Street, where many interpretive signs recall the actions of the townspeople during the battle. It added a nice touch.

    Beautiful, but noisy -- and staff couldn't care less


    We had only one night in Gettysburg, stopping on our way from our home in Lake Placid to visit my parents in central Tennessee. The Holiday Inn room was beautiful, truly everything we could have wanted it to be. The construction of the building, however, must have been faulty, because it was literally the NOISIEST overnight stay I've ever had anywhere in the world -- and I've travelled in East Africa, Western Europe, and all over North America ever since I was a kid. When I checked us out of the motel the next morning, bleary-eyed and looking at an 8-hour drive that day, I mentioned how noisy it was and suggested that, as an act of goodwill, the motel might want to make some kind of gesture to make it up to us. The desk staff was extremely rude, saying, "It's not our fault. We've already got your credit card number, so that's too bad." Think twice before reserving a room here. Then think twice again.

    Was a good room except


    We were in the annex building in a suite. The room was great..nice and clean. The only thing I did not like is that the head of the bed was against the wall that we shared with the next tentant so we heard everything they said, listened to on the tv, and every time they went to the bathroom and used water. If you are someone like me who is a lite sleeper this place may not be best place to stay.

    Awesome trip


    Myself and my daughter spent thanksgiving weekend at the Holiday Inn.

    It was awesome from the very helpful front desk staff to the house keeping staff. It is neat, clean and safe. The location is perfect, easy stroll to many attractions or a quick drive to the battlefields.

    Excellent experience


    Stayed here Sat August 9th for the 140th reenactment. They must have just completed renovations as everything seemed brand new. Nice clean spotless room. Nice restaurant. Convenient to everything. Efficient staff despite the fact that the entire own was packed with people.

    Would definitely return again.

    ... how lazy people are. Have found on floors coins, glasses lenses, key, padlock, wrappers, hotel key cards, bottles. Borrowed wipes from Tony the bus driver to clean up sticky **** on arm rest. The bus is over air conditioned so I keep putting cardy on on bus. First stop was where we had morning tea. The weather is very good. Then we travelled through the Catskills. Didn't get to see the resort where they made 'Dirty Dancing'. Very ...

    Next we ventured further into the historical district, read many more historical plaques and came upon an Irish pub, Garryowen, and time for another pint! We had definitely walked off ...

    Civil War memorabilia, Gettysburg then Amish land

    ... people and have adapted their lifestyle to meet changing needs, such as tourism. The best way to see the Amish people is to wander the rural roads. We visited a well recommended ice cream dairy where they make ice cream and sell milk and eggs produced on the farm. It is a large set up and we had to queue to be served. They also have a drive through and it was interesting to see a horse and buggy lined up there. Unfortunately I wasn't quick enough with the camera but it ...

    ... my life and being around people with campers paid of because I pretty much new what to do. We then headed home and got home around 11am.

    We had a great time in the camper and enjoyed the warm beds and running water. I also really enjoyed watching a movie each night with the kids. It was nice being warn in the camper and laughing with the kids. I would have liked not being surrounded by dance music but we just ignored it.

    ... to take the bus tour around the battlefield. It lasted about two hours and was quite good. We had a licensed battlefield guide with us as we traveled the battle lines. Not being an expert on Civil War battles, I can't tell you how accurate our guide was but he seemed quite knowledgeable and had an excellent delivery. It was very good.

    The guide discussed General Lee's strategy to bring the war to the North, hoping to force President ...
