This small hotel located in the heart of the downtown area is very nice. Beware that It can be noisy on a Saturday night when the whole town is partying but the service and ambiance are marvelous. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the homemade breakfast goodies that are left in your refrigerator the night before are wonderful.

My husband and I spent one night in the Holtzworth Livery Suite at the James Gettys Hotel. When we arrived we parked in the bay outside the hotel to unload our cases. We were then given a special parking ticket to display in our car and parked in the car park which is at the back of the hotel. The... More

This was our second stay at the James Getty Hotel. We absolutely loved it! The staff is attentive, informative and extremely friendly! Trisha booked a tour of the battle fields, and did an outstanding job. The Lord Nelson suite is our favorite, and did not disappoint. Well appointed, clean and relaxing. The cheese and fruit tray upon arrival and the... More

We stayed in the Blue Tearoom Suite last week. The suite was clean and well-appointed. The location so near to the town square was ideal. Adjacent off-street parking is a plus for a downtown location. We enjoyed the hotel, and we recommend you give it serious consideration.

Delightful, peaceful 3-night stay. Offers the comforts of home with many special touches and close to great dining choices. Special treats at the end of the day and delicious homemade bread and muffins at breakfast. Would put it on my "must return" list.

We spent two nights in the Zeigler-Holtzworth Livery Suite at the James Gettys Hotel. This hotel is ideally located for seeing the town. Our suite was perfect for our needs. The employees of this hotel are just fabulous. They are super friendly and helpful. The muffins and breads are fresh and delicious and the coffee is from the Ragged Edge... More

I booked my room before reading the reviews and after reading I was abut nervous about the Union Hotel Suite. I had no reason to be at all. The room was gorgeous and clean. We were never bothered by any noise outside or from the neighbors. The free off street parking and convenient location were a bonus! The nightly sweet... More

An original gem! Thank you Tricia for a welcoming place to stay. We will be back soon. We really enjoyed staying here. Walking distance to every thing. Great shops and very cool people. Free parking and a convenient location.

This is a great little place in the heart of Gettysburg (a very short walk to Lincoln Square) with free parking in the back. Muffins, bread, coffee, and OJ are brought up to your room in the evening for the next morning. Our room had a refrig, microwave, stove, couch and table in one room and the bedroom in another....

We stayed here for a family trip to Gettysburg. The hotel is very clean (even the back staircase was sparkling) and the room (we stayed in the Zeigler Holtzworth Livery Suite) was well-appointed and very comfortable. Ideal location for walking around downtown Gettysburg. What really stood out for us was the service--we received fresh pastries for our family of five... More

Thank you for your very kind review of our hotel! I'm glad that you were comfortable, although we prefer not to book more than four people in one suite. Next time, please let us know so we can suggest a more comfortable arrangement with more room to move around! We hope to see you again soon! Catriona More
