Terrific staff! I used the in-house laundry facility and put soap powder in the dryer! That had it cleaned within minutes and no trouble...note to myself: must wear glasses when doing laundry. Meanwhile the bar downstairs is so inviting. Nice spacious room and welcoming restaurant on site. I would recommend for all history buffs on the way to Gettysburg.

We are a family of four with two young kids. We stayed in a gloriously clean king suite after a day up in the surrounding mountains with family. The person who greeted us at the desk was pleasant, professional, and kind to my girls, and our room was great. We will definitely be back!

I use this hotel business, but it would be family friendly and is conveniently located in the center of town. Restaurant is very good and affordable with the 10% discount for hotel guests. The rooms I stayed in during three visits were comfortable and quiet.

This hotel was the best rate in the area for our Saturday night stay. Loved being in town. Our room was clean, beds were very comfortable. The air conditioner worked very well and was quiet. One Bean has great coffee.

Great location, large rooms, good off-street parking, nice bar and restaurant in hotel, friendly staff. But: Some dust on carpet and stains on handbasin in my room.

The staff from the front desk to the in-house dining room and coffee shop were first rate. We were in town for an event at Shippensburg University and this was the perfect spot. Close to the University, nearby shops etc. We will definitely be staying again.
