Terrific Value in the Heart of Town

Located in the heart of town, this motel made our stay ever so relaxing and interesting. Although the amenities are modest, the staff were very welcoming and full of information and humor. We were even allowed to leave the car in their lot for the rest of the day after checking out. Definitely the place to stay when I return!

Not the first time staying there

If your looking for a posh motel this isn't for you. It is well worth the money. This was our 3rd stay there. Located in the right area. Park the car and walk everywhere no need to drive. We will stay there again :)

gettysburg is a favorite stopping place on my way to dc. i just want a clean, comfortable, inexpensive place near the battlefield. Colton Motel has provided that. I've stayed there at least a half-dozen times.

Not what they said it was

The rooms were very old - the toilet paper holder was broken, no outlet in the bathroom for hairdryer, WiFi didn't work, etc. The rooms were fairly clean but smelled stale, old towels. The free breakfast was coffee and a doughnut although the office didn't open until 8:00 so we weren't able to have coffee. Not walking distance from the Visitors Center as stated unless you wanted to walk a good distance. It was within walking distance of several restaurants. We definitely would not stay there again.

Dobbins House was a good choice for dinner in the Tavern. And a few doors down was Hunt's Battlefield Fries. Breakfast was good there and the chesse steak was the best I ever had!!

Return Trip

This was the second time we stayed at the Colton and was very satisfied. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff was very friendly. Nothing fancy just a great value.

Shoddy

No internet, no microwave, no telephone, refrigerator unplugged. Two small towels for two people. No place to put toiletries in bathroom. Found two used tissues under sheets. Impossible to control water temperature - it was either too hot or too cold and kept changing. Entire room was unpleasant. BUT, it was conveniently located.

Great location, reasonable price

It was a good deal staying here in April. Location is within walking distance of the National Cemetery and Pickett's charge. Room was clean, bed was comfortable, shower was hot and had water pressure. Slept great.

Head to Hunt's Battlefield Fries at 61 Sheinwehr Ave. for great breakfast specials. We had a tastey bacon, egg & cheese breakfast sandwich, coffee, tea and interesting conversation. Couldn't be better.

The Bare Necessities And Fine With Me

I spent most of my time in Gettysburg out and about. So why pay big bucks for a place that you're only sleeping in ? My friends were just a few blocks down and paid more than twice as much as I did. Sure the place is older than some, but it holds it's own. You cant beat the location. And for the price , you cant beat that either. I make this trip every year and will probably look them up again.

Basic Accomodation

This hotel has been in Gettysburg for forever. Though we have been going to Gettysburg for over 30 years, this is the first time we stayed there. The rating system here is a little hard to use but here goes. Check in was a breeze. The staff was friendly and efficient, though we did not need their assistance other than checking in. The price of the stay was more than reasonable for the locale and what was there in the room. A very basic queen bed room. TV worked fine, though no way to hook up a dvd player to it. Lighting was good. Bathroom has a large shower and nice toilet and sink. Heating/AC unit was on the wall and worked fine. No refrigerator or coffee unit. Overall the room was clean and the bed comfortable. Just a basic room with a bed and bathroom. We would stay there again.
