The 1863 Inn is really a multi-floor motel - actually, it was formerly a Holiday Inn. It is clean, comfortable and has all the basics.The beds were very comfortable and the sleep was fine. The morning breakfast was pretty extensive. The room prices were reasonable for the location and speaking of location, if you don't mind walking, you can get...

Thank you for taking the time to post a review on the hotel. We are glad that you found your room to be clean and comfortable. The location of the hotel can't be beat!

This hotel is a four star hotel at three star hotel prices. The rooms are beautifully decorated, functional and clean!! It's newly updated so new beds, bedding, etc. There's a refrigerator in each room that's large enough to be useful. Staff is kind and efficient. On a fall or winter evening there's a fire place in the lobby with comfortable...

Stayed here on business trip to the Area. Older Motel but it is clean and comfortable. I enjoyed the close location to Downtown about 5 blocks to the center of Gettysburg, so time it is easy walk to the circle.

Perfect location for walking to shops and several attractions. Battlefield is right at the end of the parking lot and across from cemeteries allowing you to explore them easily. You can easily drive to any part of the battlefield from there as well. All the members of the staff that we encountered during our stay were very friendly and helpful....

This is a classic multi-floor motel, with street access to all of the rooms possible. The rooms are standard-issue motel rooms, with few extra touches. Our room had 2 full beds that were comfortable enough, a through-the-wall a/c by the door. Pros: easy access, reasonable price, allows pets, nice staff, breakfast. Good location. Cons: not as secure as I'd like,...

We just arrived home from our trip to Gettysburg. We stayed at the 1863 hotel and could not have been more pleased. The hotel is located within walking distance of many shops, restaurants, and attractions. The bus tours are almost in the same parking lot. We rarely had to use the car. Our dog came with us and the hotel...

This former Holiday Inn is clean but nothing special. Beds and chairs are uncomfortable and overall it is cleaned-up, "time-warp" place from the mid-1960's. In fact we stayed at this place in 1966 and it has not changed much except got older. You can find far better hotels in Gettysburg but this one does get "points" for its location. It...
