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

This was the third time we stayed using the Living Social deal. We booked our room on December 18, 2014 and got the James Troxel suite, which we stayed in our first trip. When we arrived on March 13, 2015 at 3pm, we were informed, by the on duty manager, Trisha, that we had been moved due to the microwave... More

My boyfriend and I purchased this stay with a living social deal. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but this hotel exceeded my expectations. We stated in the "Sign of the Buck Suite". Suite was clean, cozy, and roomy. Our bed was comfortable and warm in the winter weather. The kitchen/living room combo was very convenient. When we arrived... More

My husband purchased the living social deal, which we used this past weekend. We had a wonderful time, even with the nasty/winter weather! The hotel is beautiful and super clean! We stayed in the “Sign of the Buck Suite.” The in-suite continental breakfast each morning included orange juice, fruit, and some amazingly delicious baked goods, along with the coffee/tea. My...

Stayed on the fourth floor in a quiet suite overlooking the town. The queen bed was very comfortable and the living room/ kitchen combo was roomy. We had our friends to our room for hors d'oeuvres before we walked to dinner. Location is excellent for exploring downtown Gettysburg or the college. Park and walk. Rooms are clean and the service...
