We (almost) stayed here on Sat. night. Got the key, took a power nap, went to Wal-Mart, came back, and a couple were sleeping in our bed! We surprised them as much as they surprised us. We were then offered another room and it had no frig and a door that allowed access into our room from the staff laundry... More

This is an older motel. Well kept, good sized rooms. Not fancy, if you want that go to a new chain where they are all the same. We stayed 4 nights. The battlefield is right across the street, I think it is the best motel for location in the city. There are a number of restaurants right near by. I... More

Reserved room for Friday & Saturday nights. Tried to check in on Friday at 4:23 p.m.. Told that Travelocity had canceled the booking and the location was full. They did call my cellphone twice and left messages. They did find a room in a lower quality motel, smaller room (1 full size bed instead of 2 queens), farther away that... More

Colton is vintage and has the bare amenities...However, you don't come to Gettysburg to swim in fancy pools and have a spa day...you come to explore and walk around...therefore this fits the bar as far as affordable, friendly staff, and excellent center location. I loved being able to see the cemetery every time I opened the door. Easy walking decent... More

Traveled through Gettysburg and took a tour of the battlefield. The motel is within walking distance of restaurants, museums the National Cemetery and Cemetery Ridge. The second night my daughter was attacked by a malevolent apparition that left scratches on her back. Nighy ghost tours walk through the parking lot and straglers with EMF detectors. Friendly staff.

The office clerk was very friendly, allowed check in hours before schedule. Allowed parking before and after check out. You could not ask for a better spot! Convenient walking to any site. National cemetery next block. Lots of museums in walking distance. Needs updating, and bring you own hairdryer.

Stayed 2 nights. Didn't clean the room at all the 2nd day. Complained and they never did come to clean it. I was stuck. The owner would not talk to me and wasn't on the premises and wouldn't come. He told the night manager to knock off "$5 or 10" for my trouble. I told them to keep it and... More

This was our second time staying at this hotel. While it is an older hotel and does not offer amenities like the bigger hotels, my husband and I enjoyed our stay. Room was clean, staff really friendly. Close proximity to everything. Parked our car in the lot and walked everywhere. Would definitely recommend.

After having written several glowing accounts of this motel after past stays here,I'm forced to write a not so glowing report. The bed springs on one of the queen beds appeared to be broken as one side of the bed sagged down. Also had mold on the shower walls and the toilet was not bolted down and it was like... More
