The office clerk was very friendly, allowed check in hours before schedule. Allowed parking before and after check out. You could not ask for a better spot! Convenient walking to any site. National cemetery next block. Lots of museums in walking distance. Needs updating, and bring you own hairdryer.

Stayed 2 nights. Didn't clean the room at all the 2nd day. Complained and they never did come to clean it. I was stuck. The owner would not talk to me and wasn't on the premises and wouldn't come. He told the night manager to knock off "$5 or 10" for my trouble. I told them to keep it and...

This was our second time staying at this hotel. While it is an older hotel and does not offer amenities like the bigger hotels, my husband and I enjoyed our stay. Room was clean, staff really friendly. Close proximity to everything. Parked our car in the lot and walked everywhere. Would definitely recommend.

After having written several glowing accounts of this motel after past stays here,I'm forced to write a not so glowing report. The bed springs on one of the queen beds appeared to be broken as one side of the bed sagged down. Also had mold on the shower walls and the toilet was not bolted down and it was like...

You can sleep on the battlefield!! This is very basic motel but a a very reasonable price. It is ideally located on the "strip" with lots of shops, museums and restaurants in easy walking distance. Features a pool, some pre-packaged pastries and coffee for breakfast and door front parking. I have stayed here several times and keep coming back. If...

I stayed for one night last week. The pool opens at check out out time (11:00) which I thought was lame, so no option for a morning swim before leaving. The motel is in a quiet section of Gettysburg, at the end of a nice round trip walk to town. There are many things within walking distance, especially the cemetery...

I wanted to like this room because it wasn't a chain, but there were too many problems. First, the room is old and not very well maintained. Although the manager tried hard, the WIFI didn't work, and the TV had terrible color, i.e., skin tones were green. (Normally I wouldn't care but we wanted to watch the democratic convention.) Worst...

The room definitely has an early 80's look to it. The bed was clean and comfortable, bathroom was clean. It's a good price compared to the rest of town. Location is directly behind the park, and it's a 2 min walk from many restaurants. It's good for sleep. I was ok with my stay here!
