    Historical Traveler Reviews Quality Inn Gettysburg Motor Lodge

    Loved it!

    from

    We stayed at the Quality Inn for 2 nights, July 10 and 11, 2004. We loved it. It was very clean. We didn't have to drive anywhere. We just parked at the hotel and could walk to town. The only thing we didn't know was that during the summer the indoor pool is closed unless it is raining out. We happened to get there when there was a motorcycle convention. We loved it, the motorcycles had a parade right in front of our hotel. There were hundreds of them. The kids loved it. I would recommend the Quality Inn Gettysburg Motor Lodge!

    Lodging Fit For A President!

    from

    No, Lincoln didn't sleep here but I did! The Quality Inn Motor Lodge certainly does live up to its name - quality! This place is great - location is not to be beat. Besides being next to the Gettysburg Battlefield Visitor Center (actually, it's about a 5-10 minute walk up a decent incline), it's within walking distance of a myriad of historic homes, restaurants, gift shops, museums, etc. etc. but since it's at the end of Steinweher Ave., it does not get as much pedestrian sidewalk traffice as do the other hotels on this street. The room accommodations were right up to par - no complaints! Housekeeping was right on target, replenishing everything that needed to be replaced and keeping the room rather spotless. The Victorian Breakfast Cottage offered very tasty foods for its continental breakfast even though it appears that the same varieties of foods are offered every morning. Parking spaces are reserved - one per room - and thus you always park near your room. I had a second floor room with a terrific view of the pool and museum across the street. They even provide two outdoor chairs per room for sitting and enjoying the view. Reservations which had been made 51 weeks in advance were honored and found, and although the room wasn't ready when we arrived at the hotel, it was ready as promised ... within an hour. I'd stay here each and every visit, as long as I actually could get a reservation here - that's the only problem, it's very popular. So while I'm not Lincoln, I did feel quite presidential at this QI!

    Great place

    from

    The Gettysburg Quality inn motor lodge is a great place to stay, clean and very friendly staff, every time we are in gettysburg we stay there.

    Don't Stay Here!!In my Opion!

    from

    I stayed in one of the rooms with 3 double beds, (this is a good idea for traveling family's), although that is about the only good thing I can say about the hotel. The Desk clerks are rude & unhelpful. When I did have a problem with one of the beds I was told it would be taken care of. But to my dismay it wasn't & I was basically blown off after that. Corporate Hdqtrs said I had to deal with the hotel since they're privately owned. Well that was totally useless. The never called back like they said they would. I had to keep calling them. Not until I advised them I was going to talk to an Attorney did the General Mgr. ( who I talked with before) finally agreed to refund 1 night. (I stayed 2). He then told me next time I might be better staying somewhere else. Well thats not a problem. I will never stay here again & I will advise anyone I know about how I was poorly treated & not to stay there if they want my opinion.

    Great stay at Quality Inn

    from

    We are very glad we made the choice of staying at the Quality Inn Motor Lodge. Very clean and spacious rooms. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Most of the points of interest, the visitor information center, shopping and great places to eat were within walking distance. Would highly recommend.

    Can't beat this location!

    from

    A clean, affordable, and comfortable place to stay, maybe a little better than average, but the location is perfect! Visitor's center is just across a parking lot, and it's an easy walk to the National Cemetery, Cyclorama Center, lots of good battlefield sites, shops, restaurants, and other attractions. We parked our car in front of our room and didn't use it again until the day we departed. Especially nice on busy weekends when driving around and looking for parking spaces is a bit stressful, or if you have kids and don't want to be herding them in and out of your car all day.

    Comfort, Convenience & Cleanliness. We'll be back!

    from

    Stayed here July 8-10, 2003 in a king/whilrpool room with private balcony (w/2 chairs) overlooking outdoor pool. Four windows (that had screens & actually opened for a breath of fresh air!) with privacy curtains kept us from having that closed-in feeling of most hotel/motel rooms. Our room was large enough to feel comfortable & open. AC worked great. Bed was perfectly comfortable (but we asked for an extra pillow); furnishings - tables, chairs, dresser & chest - offered seating space for 2 people to be very comfortable & had more than enough clothing storage; good lighting w/4 lamps in the room; bench in lighted entry hall; ample closet space; comfortably large bath with mirrored door; hair dryer; coffee maker; iron & ironing board; staff friendly & helpful; housekeeping well-done & unobtrusive; all-around, a really nice room with no negatives. We anticipated a lot of noise due to the pool, but even sitting on our balcony so close to the pool was pleasant because the pool guests, adults, teens & children, were just playful, not annoyingly loud. Tour buses were there throughout our stay, but the groups were great & no more noticeable than any other guests. Apparently this is a non-smoking motel(?), but most, if not all, rooms have either a balcony or covered entry access so smokers like myself won't find it an inconvenience. [Smoker to smoker tip: those little empty canisters your film came in?-put out your cigarette & stow the butt in the canister til you can dispose of it properly.] The motel property adjoins the Battlefield & an easy walk of 5-10 minutes puts you at the Park Service Visitor Center, the site of Pickett's Charge, museums, restaurants, shops, etc. The motel is on Steinwehr Ave, convenient for evening strolls along the ave. for window shopping, a drink, ice cream or people-watching. The complimentary continental breakfast is available in a cottage on the grounds. If coffee, juice, milk, bagels, toast, danish & cereal are your taste, it's great. For a full hot breakfast try "Dunlap's" on Buford. My last hotel stay was at Caesar's in Tahoe NV in June 2003, & while not quite as upscale in some minor respects, this Quality Inn was as pleasant & comfortable in every way as the resort hotel. We won't consider a different motel for our future Gettysburg trips.

    Disliked lodging at Quality Inn

    from

    My husband and I love Gettysburg and our previous visits have been wonderful, however on our last visit the Quality Inn on Steinwehr Ave. booked a tour bus of very loud troublesome young people who purchased cap guns and poceeded to "shoot" each other from early morning till well after dark. They ran all over the property shouting and screaming. The bus was parked paralell to our room and took up seceral parking spots as well as our own and idled for ten minutes at a time, filling our room with fumes. These were not children, they were about 15-16 years old and old enough to know better. Chaperones were no where to be found and upon complaining at the desk (in a very nice way) we were told, sorry, we have no security, find a different parking spot, we can't do too much about it, etc. Upon our checkout, the motel did remove one night's charges from our bill but I would never stay there again, I will use the motels that don't book rowdy tours. We do plan to return for our fifth visit to Gettysburg in the late spring and we are very much looking forward to spending more time in this beautiful historic town. We love the restaurants, shops, people, attractions but most of all the history.

    Perfect for a larger family

    from

    The Quality Inn Gettysburg Motor Lodge is perfect for larger families.

    They have rooms with 3 double beds. When our children were younger it was perfect for our vacation. We didn't have to worry about them in another room and we didn't have to be concerned with roll away beds.

    We're visiting there again this year and requested a 3 double bed room even though our children are almost grown now. It was clean, close to the pool and to other attractions and restaurants.

    Great place to stay!

    from

    We stayed at the Quality Inn Motor Lodge in Gettysburg in April 2003 while on my son's class trip. The thing that impressed me most was it was so clean! The rooms were surprisingly large and the kids loved the indoor pool (they also have a nice outdoor pool). The Inn is right across the street from the wax museum and within walking distance to the battlefield and downtown Gettysburg. The free contintental breakfast is served in a small historic house at the back of the property. I highly recommend this Quality Inn to anyone wanting clean, convenient lodging with indoor/outdoor pools at a reasonable price.

    Getting to Gettysburg

    The long day of driving included several encounters with slowed traffic and construction. We finally arrived in Gettysburg. We decided to drive through town to see what eating establishments were still open - trying to avoid the quick burger & fries menu. We ended up in the park and decided to go see the Eternal Flame. We'll be visiting the site again tomorrow, but wanted to get some pictures of the flame in the twilight / dusk. ...

    Took 1/2 hour trip to Frederick, where ricks grandpa lived and he visited many moons ago. Googlemap on way back from Frederick was confused. Had us do 2 figure 8's and a uturn. Worst highway traffic, seemed like California traffic, 70 then 30. Then 80. Then 20. For no apparent reason at 10:20 am, Which we would think would not be rush hour but this does seem to be a pretty high traffic area so what do we know. Also got to visit with aunt Katie, thank you ...

    Then Gettysburg. We arrived late afternoon and in the last sun of the day viewed some Gettysburg Civil War sites before nightfall. Also, the weather was about to turn on us.

    Day 8: Hybrids, Ice Cream, and Gettysburg

    ... flight up, I picked up my new car from the rental stop. Right off the bat, two things about driving in the northeast are much different than my previous journey. One, it's much different driving in a place with hills and mountains. And two, I am much happier driving a Prius hybrid getting 50 miles per gallon! The second one will especially come in handy as I plan on putting over a thousand miles on the car this leg! I got into Gettysburg a little after lunch ...

    ... 200 of them marched two days to join the older confederate soldiers. Seven (?) of them were killed in the battle. With so many thousands of deaths in the Civil War, this was a small loss of men, but it was a huge windfall for The Virginia Military Institute who have used the story to recruit patriots to their freshman class ever since.

    The MUST SEE museum if you like Civil War history is Gettysburg. We stopped there on our way from Washington, ...
