Lazy Inderpendence Day

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 ...

A picnic at Devils Den.

... two because of the crowds and I missed a bit getting out to take photos. Eventually we got to Devils Den - a big pile of granite boulders at a crucial part of the battle field. Gabrielle and Michael and Chey had picnicked here before. However there were big crowds and no picnic tables so we ended up going back to the picnic tables near the visitor's centre at the end of the tour. The food was good and we ...

... I had Shrimp in lobster sauce (yum) Chey had Fried rice.

I drove from lunch. We stopped at Sen John Heinz scenic overlook/welcome to Pennsylvania. Later petrol and ice-creams at Sheetz in Mansfield. Chey had a huge drumstick and got it all over her face.

Some rain along Susquehanna River and absolutely chucked it down just before Dillsberg - scary.

... the Laurel Highlands in Western Pa. Gettysburg is one of the few remaining in- tact tracts of land where the battle was actually fought. You can visit every inch of the battleground. The museum itself is also very organized and well done. Lots of useful videos, as well as the usual collection of guns and war memorabilia.

I was particularly excited to see the ridge that Chamberlain and his regiment of Maine volunteers held against ...

... biggest oil on canvas mural in North America. Mom would have studied it for hours. It hung like a shower curtain in a complete circle and was weighted down every 3 feet by 5 pound weights making it bow in toward the audience ever so slightly. It is 22 feet high and 279 feet long. Enormous! The ground below the painting was created to blend in and it created the coolest effect. Amelia pointed out a well that was half painted have built into the stage. The mural came ...

    Pet Friendly Means Every Room!!

    from

    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.

    Great Location , Great Hotel!

    from

    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.

    Terrific hotel for families!

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    from

    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.

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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.
