Highly Reccommend this Inn!
From the moment we got to Larson's The entire staff did everything they could to make us comfortable and happy. The rooms were clean and in great shape. Our housekeeper was friendly and went out of her way to make sure we had all of thecomforts of home. Their prices are more than reasonable. We have decided that each trip to the area will include a stay at Larsons.
Very clean, well maintained motel. Period decorations in the room. Pleasant desk personel. Across from the battlefiled but not in the noisy more commercial area of Gettysburg. I would stay there again!
Stayed one nite Nov. 2003. Location was nice; in the country yet just a few blocks to town. Older room; nothing fancy. There was a musty odor in the room - not overpowering, but there. No coffee maker as promised in their ad. Otherwise was okay.
A Little Disappointed
My husband and I stayed at QI Larson's Aug. 11 and 12th. We arrived fairly late, but the desk person was nice/helpful, and we went to our room. It's nice to have a reserved parking space!
Upon entering the room, there was a very musty odor, I guess caused by the AC unit. It wasn't "unbearable," but certainly wasn't something you'd expect. My husband went back to talk to the desk clerk, who said there were no other rooms available, although we had overheard the clerk telling another family who had just "walked in" that they had a room for $125/night.
So, we stayed in our room which was otherwise fine, although we had been promised a coffee maker in the room and there wasn't one. Also, there wasn't anyplace to keep our valuables (camera, laptop computer, etc.) I realize most people probably don't use safes, or might keep items in their car, but with a laptop it's a really nice feature. It was really hot during the day, therefore we didn't want to lock it up in the car.
Anyway, the room was fine, a good size. Bathroom was larger than usual.
Everything was clean. The towels were pretty "scratchy," but other than that, fine.
The continental breakfast was disappointing. It is served in a small room off of the main lobby and there are probably 3 tables that accommodate 4 people and then 2 "high" tables for 2. When we got there Tues. morning around 7:30am, there were no seats available. There was a line at the toaster, which was really slow (one of those rotating ones). The coffee was served in tiny styrofoam cups, I guess they were 4 oz. For big coffee drinkers like us, that seemed silly. Also, the coffee was below average.
The other choices were mini muffins, bagels, toast and cereal. we just found it more limiting than what we're used to. The next morning we asked the desk clerk for a breakfast recommendation, and she suggested Dunlap's down the street. We went and it was good, they had coffee mugs!
The pool, which we did use after a hot day on the battlefield, was very clean and well kept. They offer pool towels at the front desk, but they were TINY!
Overall, it wasn't a bad experience by any means, but I don't know if I'd stay there again. There is another Quality Inn in Gettysburg, within walking distance of the visitor's center. I think that would be really convenient!
What a beautiful and relaxing way to end our vacation! We spent two days here, and thoroughly loved it. We loved visiting General Lee's Headquarters Museum--tickets are free to guests. Another plus was being able to relax at the pool and look towards historic Seminary Ridge. The staff was friendly and helpful; the rooms were spacious and clean. The hotel is also conveniently located to town and other attractions. We will definitely stay again!
We have stayed here at least eight times over the past 15 years,and have loved it each time: the rooms are beautiful,lovely swimming pool,lovely view,good breakfast,peaceful location yet a very short drive to all the downtown sites. We would never consider staying anywhere else in Gettysburg,and always hope that rooms are available when we call.

Larson's Quality Inn was outstanding! We stayed in the suite. It was simply gorgeous! The room was wonderfully decorated, the bed truly comfortable, and the whole suite sparkling clean. Did not have any of the mustiness of most hotel rooms. Would stay there again any time!
We've been enjoying Larson's for more than a decade. It is always clean, fresh and accommodating; the prices, especially off-season, can't be beat. The location is perfect, just outside of town so you're away from traffic but a nice walk to the center of things as well as soothing Seminary Ridge.
What a treat!
From the friendly greeting to the comfortable king-sized four-poster bed, this inn was wonderful. We enjoyed our stay immensely, including our morning visit to the museum at General Lee's headquarters, free and right on the premises. My kids connected to the history of the town in a special way because of our stay at this historic site.
My family has stayed at this motel several times over the last few years, and have yet to be disapointed. We usually stay in one of their beautiful suites. They are tastefully decorated and most have a large jacuzzi tub which is a delight. The larger suites located across the street also have a complete kitchen, living room, two bedrooms, and are two levels. A bit spooky at night, they are fun to stay in. This is a great place to stay, and we plan to return there many more times.

We had the opportunity and time to make a stop into Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, as we are beginning our journey up north before we begin heading back to Colorado.
We had one full day in Gettysburg. We were armed with apps that gave information on the battle and memorials/statues in Gettysburg and even stopped by the visitors center to …
... Military Park, a place on my bucket list for a long time, our Battlefield Licensed Guide got on the bus and conducted our tour around the park. His name was Tim Smith and I would venture to say there is not much he doesn't know about Gettysburg! This was what our daughter used to call the "cannons and monuments" part of our trip. We saw SO many monuments, they all started to look the same after a ...
... war were not achieved." I think it's the closest I've ever heard the military or the US government come to admitting that we lost that war. Of course, there's not much mention of atrocities committed by the US military. And one display that is notably absent is any mention of the wars with the Native Americans and massacres committed by the US armed forces during that time. There are displays of the military activities during the "peaceful years" between ...
... warning of the evils of taking your kids trick or treating. Inside are books, pamphlets, tracts that basically demonize every belief, religion and demonination different from theirs. Quite a contrast with the inclusive vibe I sensed in nearby Shiremanstown. Now that I've explored so many Main Streets in the region, I must say Mechanicsburg Main Street seems even worse than I remember it. Immediately behind Main ...
... good place to discuss it. We were on our way to Philadelphia when we saw the sign for Valley Forge. Turn here! Philadelphia will wait. Do locales have their own unique feelings? I think not. Rather the individual has the feeling based on what he knows about the place he is visiting. Think of the music you heard in the movie Patton as the General visits various ancient battle sites. As I recall, he said something like, "I was there". Could he feel ...
