My husband and I met up with our son and his family for a visit to Gettysburg and environs and we stayed at this charming, well-located historic hotel for three nights. Our rooms were spacious, bright, clean and nicely appointed. It was great to have a kitchenette in each room. The downtown location could not have been better in terms... More

My Husband and I traveled to Gettysburg for a quick overnight trip on my Birthday. We picked the James Getty Hotel due to its location. The hotel is very clean and the managers were very nice and knowledgeable. The breakfast basket of lemon bread and muffin's was a nice way to greet the morning, perfect with a cup of coffee.... More

Our family highly recommends the James Getty's Hotel in Gettysburg. We are a military family of four, with infant twins, coming back to the states from our Germany assignment. Since our flight was delayed by 3 hours we contacted the hotel via email to let them know that we would have an even later arrival, making it closer to 2am... More

This is he best hotel in Gettysburg! It has an excellent location right in downtown Gettysburg! Free parking! Free homemade breakfasts! The rooms are spotless, and all have kitchenettes! The A/C worked great, and the tv had over 200 channels in HD! This is the only place I will stay when in Gettysburg!

If you're looking for a quaint hotel in an historic location, this is it. Old brown stone building right in the middle of town. Easy access to all the battlefields, restaurants and shopping. Nice staff and rooms. I would go there again on next visit. Only slight negative is that the price is higher than other hotels. If you're looking... More

Our stay at the James Geddy Hotel was simply delightful! In celebration of my birthday, the staff made arrangements for a beautiful floral arrangement and yummy cupcakes to be waiting for me upon arrival. They also booked tours for us in advance. The room was quaint and immaculate. The service was impeccable and the staff friendly and helpful. The carafe... More

We stayed here May 14 and 15th in the Buck Suite. We loved it! The two rooms are large, and the kitchen was an added feature. Although the bedroom was over the main street, we only heard cars driving by, but it didn't bother us. The muffins, juice, coffee, candy, and cookies were such a lovely treat, and the hotel... More
