I thought it was overpriced, until I actually experienced this great old hotel. In the middle of Gettysburg, this hotel is about quality, not quantity. Every inch is spotless, well appointed, and very accommodating. The large suite that we were in was very well stocked with everything you need, including free wifi! I would not hesitate to stay at the... More

The James Gettys is a lovely hotel right in the historic district of Gettysburg and within walking distance of in-town historic sites and restaurants. All the rooms are Junior Suites which makes for a very comfortable stay. Breakfast is continental and delivered the night before--a basket of yummy muffins and breads and a carafe of orange juice in the fridge.... More

I spent weeks and hours & hours trying to pick THE perfect place to stay. And this was it! From before we even arrived, I was impressed. We had to change our dates a week prior, and they were completely accommodating. Not only got an automated email regarding the change, but a personal email just to clarify the phone conversation....

Reserved parking right in front was great for check in. We then used the parking lot right behind the James Getty and it was very convenient. We stayed in the Lord Nelson room and it was spotless. The kitchenette had everything we needed including the complimentary cheese tray(the cheeses were incredible). Each night they also dropped off muffins, spiced breads,... More

This hotel is the perfect weekend getaway. The owners show a genuine interest in their guests. They made sure we were enjoying our stay and were always willing to give suggestions on where to go or what to do. Our suite was spotless. The fruit and cheese tray a welcome snack. The location was right in the heart of town.... More

We came here based on a 2 night groupon gift bought for us. The hotel is right in the center of town allowing you to park your car in their parking lot and walk to most attractions. The room was clean, large and comfy. I only wish they had queen or king size beds. However, it had a nice little... More

We have been staying at the James Getty for 15 years now. It has been consistently clean and well cared for, and the staff has always been very friendly. It is in a great location for walking to restaurants and shops. The breakfast of baked goods (baked on the premises, too) with fruit and juice is always delicious. I have... More

This is great place to stay! My room was spotless. Nicely decorated. Amenities such as homebaked goods and fruit brought to your room each evening for b'fast the next day and cookies brought during the day. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again.
