We love this place. Have been going there for over 15 years and it never disappoints. Tricia and the staff treat you like special guests in their home. An ice storm the night before our departure extended our stay. They were gracious in taking care of us even cleaning our car off the day of our departure because of our... More

The service and staff were exceptional. The rooms are were equipped with a kithchenette, including coffee, tea and fresh delivered orange juice muffins, cake and candy each day. They are all delicious!! The location couldn't have been better, right in center of town. The hotel is extremely clean and I would recommend to anyone who wants to be pampered.

I returned to the James Gettys the end of January for the Annual Civil War Winter Ball. This was I think my 14th stay at the James Gettys. As always, my suite, the home made breakfast, and those chocolate chip cookies. I always feel that I have a wonderful home in Gettysburg!

I hadn't been to Gettysburg and was unsure where to stay. I was pleasantly surprised with our selection at the James Getty Hotel. The building had an authentic charm and was nicely sized for a romantic getaway. It's located within walking distance of most things offered in Gettysburg and delivers freshly baked breakfast goodies nightly. Would definitely recommend!!

We recently stayed at the James Getty Hotel and had a wonderful time. Both our room and the hotel were bright, beautiful and clean. We found the staff to be, not only accommodating but warm and personable. The excellent location of the hotel added to our enjoyable experience. We are looking forward to returning.

We spent an overnight here seeking an introduction to the Gettysburg Military Park and environs. Staff was very friendly and helpful, the accommodations were complete and comfortable, and we appreciated the location right off the "square" in the center of town. The room was quiet, but it was too warm, despite attempts to adjust the thermostat. We definitely would recommend... More

Very nice hotel with extremely pleasant front desk staff. The continental breakfast brought to the room was delicious and much appreciated. The afternoon snacks were a welcome treat. It's located a very short walk from restaurants and shops in the center of town.

We were excited to stay here as it was rated so highly. The noise from the street and the rooms was very annoying and loud on Friday night. Saturday was a little quieter, but you could hear people's conversations. The room is large with a little kitchen, living area, and bedroom. It is convenient to the town and restaurants. There...

Overall this is a very nice small hotel located steps away from the town square (circle/roundabout) in downtown Gettysburg. We stayed in the Keystone suite. The hotel is centrally located with free parking for guests. Limited metered parking is available throughout the town. The hotel and staff were very nice. The only issues we had were an internet wifi outage... More
