We stayed in the Indian King room which had lots of room and beautiful high ceilings. The fully stocked kitchenette was very convenient. Also, the fresh ground coffee for the coffee maker was very good and better any hotel coffee I've had. We loved the pastry and fruit breakfast basket that was delivered in the evenings, along with orange juice... More

Very clean, very quiet and very roomy - with a very friendly and attentive staff. Walk out the front door for shopping and restaurants all within a few blocks. Battlefield is a short drive down the road. Can't go wrong with this hotel.

Great location, friendly staff, roomy room and extremely clean. Refreshed baked goods and chocolate very nice. Instead of breakfast we enjoyed these at night for dessert. Coffee cake especially was delicious. Can't say the rooms are decadent or unusual but they are very comfortable. Overall stay here, you will not be disappointed.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights with our two young sons. The Sign of the Buck suite was very nicely laid out. The staff is friendly and accommodating with any needs. At check-in you are provided with a parking pass for the rear lot which is a huge help in busy downtown Gettysburg. If you... More

My wife and I stayed there Thurs, Fri, & Sat in the Majestic Suite. Huge in most respects. Large sitting area, equally large bedroom with comfortable king bed, and large bathroom with jacuzzi tub and nice shower. Average toiletries but had fresh ground coffe in am with home made pastries and orange juice. Overall a delight. I got up before... More

Positive - clean room, close to restaurants and cafés. Parking free at rear of hotel. Staff really friendly and helpful. Cookies left at night was a homely touch. Downside - noisy air conditioning resulted in having to move rooms at 12.30am. No one on site after 10pm only a contact telephone no. Muffins, zucchini bread and grapes not really my... More

Selected this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews and was not disappointed. The James Gettys has it all, warmth, charm, history, great location, hospitality and an excellent value. I had called ahead for a late check-in as the front desk closes at 8 p.m. and the front door is locked. I was given instructions as to where to park and where... More

Hi there! Thank you for your kind words! It was a pleasure hosting your trip to Gettysburg! Your description of the Sign of the Spread Eagle Suite is as charming as the suite itself! It is the perfect room for a single traveler, or a budget-minded couple that doesn't mind a smaller bed. We hope to see you again very... More

We chose the James Gettys based on the Trip Advisor reviews, reasonable price, and perfect location. We were assigned to the Keystone Suite which is on the 4th floor overlooking Chambersburg Street. The suite was perfect for my family of three, although a queen bed (instead of a double) would have made things a bit more comfortable. The room was... More

Loved everything! Clean, comfortable and charming. After years of stale muffins and boxed cereals, the homemade treats were a welcome change. The manager of the hotel was attentive and welcoming (as was her sister). We will be back!

This was our first time to see the Gettysburg National Battlefield and we weren't sure where to stay. We chose the James Getty Hotel because it is located in the city center. We were happy with our choice, because we could walk to a restaurant for dinner. We also learned that for a very small price you can take a... More
