This is a 2 star hotel in a 4 star location - knowing that can help you evaluate whether it is a good fit for you. The location is smack in the center of Gettysburg and the opportunity to walk around to many sights, shops and restaurants was a plus for me. That said, the hotel disappointed in many ways, particularly relative to the price: -we were in a "suite" in the back of the hotel. It was dark and the sitting area was small and uncomfortable Many rooms face the back of the hotel: an al... Read more

Had a meaningful time visiting the Gettysburg Battlefield. Educational, interesting and emotional as you view where so many gave their lives. Rangers were amazingly informed about all the nuances. Management at the Gettysburg could take a lesson from the Rangers. The hotel was wonderful, but it ran out of hot water to take a shower at 6 pm when trying to wash off a day of hiking. Compared to what we were there to see, seems not worth writing about but the management's view of this was....... Read more

A centrally located and, evidently historic, hotel it dominates the central square of this truly charming little town. We checked in without any prior booking on a Wednesday afternoon and could only be offered the most expensive room in the house. Indeed, it was very good; top floor looking out across the centre of town, spacious and well appointed. It was only subsequently, however,as we walked the town, that I was able to see just how big the hotel really is and how many rooms it has to of... Read more

Hotel was in a great location with a lot around the hotel to eat and to see. Restaurant could of had more food on the menu for dinner. Internet code was easy to remember and hotel garage parking had plenty of places to park. Just would watch where you park. Because some people do not know how to park in their own space.

The Gettysburg Hotel offers a convenient location and spacious accommodations. The room was very clean, the staff most friendly, and the space arranged nicely. The overall stay was most enjoyable, and I'd highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. The hotel was "fine". The rooms are clean and comfortable. The location is extremely convenient to all restaurants, the college and the historical sights. The cons were: the Internet did not work well the first day and I had to go to Starbucks to get service, the Windows face the street so at times the traffic is loud (but that's also a trade off for being right in town), staff smokes outside the hotel so you have to walk through it (or they sit on the ste...

Modern, clean and well furnished. Beds were very comfortable, and the AC kept the room very cold. Parking behind the hotel in the garage was close. This hotel is within walking distance of several different types of food establishments. Hotel bar was small, but nice. The hotel is a short drive to the battlefield. I highly recommend this hotel

Planned a last minute getaway. Found a great room with a mobile discount. Loved staying at a hotel with so much history and hauntings. However we did not encounter any paranormal guests during our stay. The hotel has been remodeled since we last saw it. Large modern rooms with free wifi, coffee, and cozy beds. Looks like a great venue for weddings or special occasions. Staff was very friendly. The hotel has many amenities including a fitness room, outdoor pool and attached restaurant One Linco... Read more

This hotel is situated about as good as you could want if you are in town for business or pleasure. We were there during the celebration of the Battle Of Gettysburg, and it was completely full, as was every other place in town. You are greeted by a very nice front desk attendant, which is manned 24/7. The rooms were big, well appointed, and very comfortable. Big bathroom, nice TV and plenty of room to unpack and store your belongings. Fast elevator, full ice machine on every other floor, an... Read more

Great location in a historic town. Professional service. However, Room value is not there - loud, very loud air conditioning and bathroom vents. Decor and amenities similar to a Hampton Inn. Smoking allowed in front and back of hotel entrances, also not a positive welcome to such a historic and lovely building.

My family and I stayed here for three nights leading up to the July 4th weekend. I can't say enough about the location of this hotel. It is absolutely perfect for walking. It's perched right in the center of small town loveliness. The hotel bar is charming. We loved stopping in for a drink after a long day in the sun. The overall cleanliness of the hotel was great. The rooms are well appointed and the service was spot on. We would definitely say again.

We were accommodated very nicely at a last minutes notice. The location is probably the best we have stayed at in Gettysburg. Close to all historical walking areas. Parking was no problem in the garage next door..Many good restaurants close by in walking distance. Also fine arts stores and historicalmemorablia stores. Recommended.

Lots of traffic in most hotels is not a problem, but at Hotel Gettysburg the windows suck so you hear everything. Also, the AC unit squeaked the entire time. This hotel is in need of upgrading. Historic charm only goes so far.. I've stayed at this hotel 4 years in a row and there won't be a 5th.

I was impressed with the hotel and service that was received. My only concern is that we had to wait over 1 hour to have a room assigned. was told the house keepers do not clean a room until it is sold. Reservations were made plenty early and rooms should have been ready for check in.

This is a large hotel right in the center of town. We could easily walk to restaurants shops etc. the battlefield historic sites are about 2 miles up the hill. We were upgraded to a suite (thanks!) as our room wasn't ready on our second try so we didn't stay in a regular room but they all seemed updated. Had coffee maker but no fridge.

This was our families first trip to Gettysburg and I can already tell there will be many more as long as we stay here. As a lover of history I have to say this hotel is chalked full of it. It might be old in years but walking into the lobby felt like something new. The staff was very kind and easy to talk to. The room we stayed in could not have fit our needs any better. All the modern needs with a touch of historic. Being within walking distance of amazing food and entertainment didn't h... Read more

Booked through Expedia and got a great price. Location was perfect, close to great places to eat in town. The room was clean and very comfortable.

Rooms are nice and spacious, breakfast is quite good, and there's a lovely cozy bar. Restaurants and downtown museums such as the house across the street where Lincoln stayed before giving the Gettysburg Address are all within easy walking distance, and the Battlefield Museum is a quick car ride or 30 min. walk away.

Great location in the center of Gettysburg and a short 5 minute drive to the Military Visitor Center, very clean and the rooms were perfect. We enjoyed a few beers each night in the Pub after long days of sightseeing. The parking is a little inconvenient however not a reason not to stay here, we will stay again on our next trip to this area.

Had a great experience staying at this hotel. We booked a Queen Suite which had a queen size bed in one room and a couch and room for a cot in the other room, so it slept our family of four comfortably. We really enjoyed being right in the center of town, with restaurants and shops on all sides. It was nice being able to walk to some of the best restaurants in town after a long day in the car. Of note are the Gettysburg Baking Co. across the square and Food 101 which is a short walk away. We als... Read more

This is a great location for anything you want to do in Gettysburg. Right in the square. Clean and comfortable beds. I suppose it could use some updates, but it is very clean and well taken care of. Parking in the garage behind is fine although not the easiest thing to pay for on line. It was a very pleasant stay.

Like many of us, I'm a rather quirky traveler. I cannot eat dinner until I've arrived at my location and once I've arrived I prefer to walk to dinner. Like I said, I'm quirky. Regardless, this hotel completely met my quirky desires. There are several very good restaurants within walking distance of this hotel. I do recommend, however, getting here much earlier than the 8:30 PM I arrived. It's a great place to unwind after a long drive into town. Needing to get to a 10:00 AM battlefield tour made...

After reading some of the reviews decided to stay here because it was in downtown Gettysburgh. Beautiful old hotel. Good location. I would recommend staying here. Parking at the garage across the street was a little confusing but finally figured it out. Do not park rear first or you will get a citation. Hotel told us it was not a ticket, we will see, Gettysburgh is a very interesting place, we started our road trip there and had a great couple of days.

This hotel has a great location, right on the town square. Walking to local shops, restaurants, etc. was very convenient. The restaurant serves a good breakfast. We didn't eat any other meals there. Ultimately, a hotel's value is all about the room. It was small. There was barely room to walk at the foot of the bed. In a historic hotel, I understand that the rooms might be smaller than a typical room today. However, we weren't staying in the older part of the building. The room seemed t... Read more

25 of us, from ages 2 to 94, descended on Gettysburg for a long weekend. The hotel is in the epicenter of everything on the town square. Rooms are nice for an older renovated (Historic) property. Hotel staff are very pleasant and accommodating. There was a wedding booked this weekend as well (maybe 2) with the reception in the hotel as well, so it was a hopping place. As an early riser, I sat in the very picturesque sidewalk cafe just outside many mornings and a couple of evenings. It's an ide... Read more

The restaurant and bar at the Gettysburg Hotel, One Lincoln, has consistently been a favorite among our group of friends and family. From special occasions (they are WONDERFUL, and make every detail personal) to just a place to convene on a Friday night, this is one of the best local places in town. Terri, one of the many great staff people in the bar and restaurant, makes every visit fun and memorable. Looking for something a little off the tourist track? You won't go wrong here.

This is a nice hotel that could be a great hotel with some tweaking... Would Love to give it 5 stars, but this is why I won't. There is a restaurant in the hotel, yet they do not offer room service. There is a nice lounge in the lobby to sit, yet there is no coffee or anything available for the guests. Not that we aren't having a lovely time here in Gettysburg.

We really liked this hotel. It was adorable and in a great location in Lincoln Square. We initially had a room that we did not like (had skylights instead of windows) and without hesitation they moved us up to the Governor's suite. Really nice service. Bathrooms were not as nice as the rest of the room. Parking is not attached and no valet, so you have to park in the garage behind and carry your stuff (there are spots in front but they are always full). But overall probably the nicest hote...

Totally modernized historic hotel. Our room is a nice size and comfortable. Good light, fast elevators, comfortable inviting common area watching the street action in the square.

We always stay at this hotel when we visit Gettysburg, PA. It is an excellent location to enjoy the whole experience of what this community has to offer. We enjoy the restaurant, One Lincoln, located in the hotel. Their food and service is excellent. Chef Justin does a top job in the entrees he prepares, and our server, Maria, was very professional and showed a significant amount of dedication to our needs.
