Pros

  • Comfortable rooms with mini-fridges and microwaves
  • Family Suites available that sleep up to seven people
  • Indoor pool and fitness room equipped with modern machines
  • Free buffet breakfast includes eggs and waffles

Cons

  • No restaurant or bar on-site
  • Lacks historic charm of other local hotels
  • Downtown takes at least 15 minutes to reach on foot

Bottom Line

This Comfort Suites is a value hotel situated within easy reach of Gettysburg's historic downtown, next to the Gettysburg National Military Park. The 145 rooms are clean and comfortable, and come equipped with mini-fridges and microwaves. The free breakfast buffet is decent, with hot items like eggs, bacon, and a waffle station. The hotel lacks the local character and history of places like the Federal Pointe Inn, but is still a reliable and affordable option with an indoor pool, a fitness area, and a large event room. Guests looking for the best deals may want to compare rates at the similarly priced Sleep Inn and Suites.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Simple, classic hotel with a few cozy features

Standing four floors high and sporting the typical Comfort Suites look -- buildings painted yellow and salmon -- this property features a fine lobby with an open floor plan that's accentuated by a vaulted stacked-stone fireplace. It adds a cozy touch to what is otherwise a simple and straightforward value hotel. There are a couple of comfortable seating areas with couches and coffee tables by the windows, and a large, modern chandelier hanging overhead. The breakfast room has wooden tables and tall chairs, but it doesn't get much natural light as the one window is typically covered with curtains. Aside from these few common areas, the hotel is geared towards travelers who aren't looking to spend all of their time hanging out on-site. Clientele is an even mix of vacationing families and business travelers.

Location

Next to Military Park, south of historic downtown

Map of Comfort Suites Gettysburg

The hotel is located along the busy Baltimore Pike next door to the Gettysburg National Battlefield and Memorial Park, just south of Gettysburg's historic downtown. Guests can walk to the Gettysburg Address Memorial in five minutes, and many rooms look out upon Gettysburg National Cemetery. Pike Restaurant and Lounge is located on the other side of the hotel. Town Square -- with its many historic sites, shops, restaurants, and pubs -- is just under a 20-minute walk away, or five minutes by car. Gettysburg College is about a seven-minute drive from the hotel. Hersheypark takes just over an hour to reach by road for guests with children (or thrill ride enthusiasts). Harrisburg International Airport is a 55-minute drive from the hotel, while Baltimore/Washington International Airport is an hour and 15 minutes away by car.

Rooms

Spacious, modern rooms with chain decor and added bonuses such as mini-fridges

There are 145 rooms at this hotel, all of which are clean, modern, and spacious. Decor is somewhat predictable and plain, but each room has at least one large framed print and a potted plant. Beds are plush and come with a variety of pillows, and rooms are equipped with mini-fridges, microwaves, flat-screen TVs, and coffeemakers. Suites include sofa beds and Family Suites have separate rooms with enough beds to accommodate seven people. Many rooms look directly out upon the Gettysburg National Cemetery and are quiet, picking up virtually no outside noise. Bathrooms are also modern and spacious, and all are equipped with shower/tub combos. The hotel has an eco-friendly policy that allows guests to opt out of daily housekeeping in return for a credit on their bill.
