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

We regularly stay at the James Getty when visiting Gettysburg. The hotel is located in the heart of Gettysburg - within walking distance to many sites. The innkeepers are so kind and go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. It is one of the few hotels where I am actually comfortable - it is super clean, up... More

We loved everything about this hotel: It's historic look; it's cleanliness and modern amenities such as wi-fi; our suite (John Trumbull Sr) complete with kitchen, breakfast left in the fridge, and cookies or chocolates left at night; Lord Nelson's Gallery connected to it; Adams County Winery on one side of it and the Blue Parrot Bistro on the other side....

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.
