Hotel near Gettysburg tourist sights Jun 28, 2017
Located right off route 15 in Gettysburg, PA where it crosses route 97 (Baltimore Pike) is the Country Inns & Suites by Carlson. It is a little confusing to find the place, and while the signs are clearly visible, one has to drive up a hill on either side and navigate a few turns to arrive here. There is a large outlet mall (The Outlet Shoppes) nearby, which is the reason for the confusing navigation to the hotel, but once arriving up the hill the hotel is clearly visible. It was past midnight and near 1 am when we arrived, so had to check to see if they had rooms first. Indeed they did, and the lady who ran the reception was very nice and welcoming, giving us all the info we needed for our stay.

The room was decent looking, though a bit more than we needed for just a stay of 1 night. The space was divided into two sections, a sitting room with chair, couch and television near the entrance, and a bedroom in the far section. The middle area contains the bathroom and an open closet with ironing board and iron. Next to the closet is a small kitchenette with sink, microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker. The bedroom has a small dresser and also a TV in here too. The bed was quite comfortable and very much to my liking. There were extra pillows and blankets available as well. Very quiet in this hotel at night and no issues getting a good nights sleep here. The wifi is free in the room, which is always nice to have available.

The breakfast also comes free with a stay here. It is a buffet style with a large selection of breakfast eats - bacon, sausage, eggs, corned beef hash, waffles, cereals, oatmeal and fruit. Coffee, tea, water and a selection of juices are also available for drinks. It was quite busy at breakfast time here with many hungry tourists fueling up for a day of touring in Gettysburg, a major tourist attraction in Pennsylvania as the place of a pivotal battle in the American Civil War (1861-1865). The battlefield and associated tourists sites for Gettysburg is only a short distance up route 97 (Baltimore Pike), so the hotel is very conveniently located when touring around in Gettysburg, PA.

The lobby has a nice sitting area between the breakfast room and reception desk. The space contains a “Read It & Return Lending Library” if you want a book to borrow during your stay. Nearby on the other side of the stairs is a wall containing the text of the Gettysburg Address. This address was President Abraham Lincoln’s speech delivered in Gettysburg on November 19, 1863 to dedicate Soldier’s National Cemetery for the Union troops killed during the battle. It is a masterful and concise statement on the nation and of the American Civil War. The speech begins with the famous words, “Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”

Other amenities here include an indoor pool and hot tub, fitness center and laundry facilities. There is a covered front porch outside with sitting areas and flowers spread around, making for a pleasant sitting space. The outlet mall is a short walk away from the hotel, just a few minutes by foot. The Gettysburg Visitor Center is just 2 miles (3.2 km) by automobile. Overall, this hotel would be a very good choice as a place to stay while visiting Gettysburg - comfortable and spacious rooms, free wifi & breakfast, nearby shopping and close proximity to the tourist sites. We were just passing through the area, but would consider returning here should we tour Gettysburg in the future.
