    Very pet friendly

    The hotel is in a great location, walking distance from great restaurants. The staff is very friendly and professional. Breakfast is absolutely amazing. Everyone was friendly and nice to my Pomeranians, too!!

    Central location

    Great accommodations, walk to shops and dining, great areas for dog walking etc. Street noise at front of building is quite loud. Large trucks at all times of day and into the evening.

    Good location

    Room was clean and appears to have been updated. We had a room facing the road and were not bothered by traffic. Short walk to shopping and pet friendly restaurants.

    Great stay

    We spent 2 days at the 1863 Inn with our dog. The king room was large and easily accommodated his XL cage. Our room was on ground level in the back of the hotel which made access to the large green space behind the hotel quite easy. The room was very clean. Staff was great. Many choices for breakfast. Great location (even close to a dog park.) Will definetly stay here again!

    Great experience

    Super pet friendly. Clean, comfortable room. Pool looked clean and inviting. They gave us dog treats on check in. Very close to many dog friendly shops and restaurants. Will be back!

    I have taken my dog here every year since 2010

    We come every summer, usually around the 4th of July, but sometimes during other dates as well. My dog is used to traveling with us and enjoys being a part of family vacations. We have always had a great experience here... it's convenient because it's so close to everything (including many pet friendly restaurants) and also an easy walk around downtown Gettysburg without ever getting in your car. The rooms have always been clean and I appreciate the fridge (my dogs food goes in the fridge). Overall cannot say anything good things - Gettysburg is VERY dog friendly and I appreciate it!

    Take a ‘Hard Pass’ on the 1863

    I’m at the conclusion of a two week roadtrip. My final night was in Gettysburg at the 1863. Disappointing way to end the trip:

    *Bedding: absolute worst quality bedding — sheets and pillows — of the entire trip. Even low level Best Westerns have far superior bedding.

    *AC/Heating Unit: again, the only place I’ve stayed in two weeks where the fan will not stay on all night as a type of white noise. ..which is desperately needed because:

    *Road noise: the 1863 sits directly on a busy, load road. Half of the rooms face the road, and you hear ever car that passes.

    When visiting the Gettysburg area, I would take a ‘hard pass’ on the 1863. Try Courtyard or perhaps the Best Western options.

    Phoenix Stays Here Regularly!

    What pooch can beat this place? Walking distance to dog-friendly restaurants...Minimal pet charge per night...Friendly service with clean rooms. You are asked to sign a pet policy in advance so there shouldn’t be any surprises if you are mindful of your neighbors. Already planning our return visit!

    Great weekend!

    We were here in June 18, 2016 and the 19th. We have been here a few timed now and we love It! Staff is very nice and accommending. When we went to check in our room was not ready yet. One of dog's med is refrigerate and the staff said they would refrigerate it for me. Another plus is that my dog could sit by the pool with me but was not allowed in the pool. I have never been to a place that allowed this. Our king room was spacious and comfortable. The bed and pillows very comfortable. They go over all the pet rules and polices and you sign a paper about the rules so I don't know why the other person was upset about it because they were informed. This is a great place!
