We enjoy hosting your annual visit and always look forward to that week. Reenactment week is certainly one of the busiest times to visit Gettysburg, but it is always a fun time, and our guests’ enthusiasm only adds to our enjoyment. See you next July! Sincerely, Catriona More

Arrival and check-in were relaxed. Room with kitchenette is attractively furnished with two extra towels (fluffy) and extra pillows. Wifi is easily accessed. Walking distance to theater, Wills House, ice cream, several restaurants that post their menus outside (important for budget), and lots of shops. Guests should bring only one vehicle; parking is available. Elevator! LOVELY EXPERIENCE.

Charming and spacious room. Excellent kitchenette with full-sized fridge. Homemade breakfast basket was delicious. Beds were comfy. Super friendly staff. Within easy walking distance of many attractions and restaurants. Kid friendly. Free parking located behind building. Great value!! Would stay again in a heartbeat. Made us feel like we were valued guests and not just tourists.

Let me explain. The hotel was fantastic. I have no complaints about the staff or it's amenities or the location. My only complaint was that we booked the last room they had available for the weekend (the ziegler-holtzworth suite). The room itself was fantastic. However, when we tried to sleep at night, the noise from the alley down below was... More

My husband and I recently took a trip to Baltimore and decided to extend our time away with a few days in Gettysburg. I chose the J.G. because of the location and amenities that are offered. I am so glad I did. We stayed in the Majestic Suite and felt like royalty. We can't wait to return!

I'm so glad you decided to extend your trip! Gettysburg and Baltimore make a great combination of destinations - two different periods in American history, but both so very important! I'm pleased that you felt like royalty in our Majestic Suite and I hope you'll stop by to let us pamper you again in the future! Sincerely, Catriona More

We've stayed at James Gettys Hotel many times, and each is better than the last. Central location and amazing accommodations. The staff is both friendly and knowledgeable, breakfasts are delightful, decor is top notch. Try Lord Nelson's Suite for a real treat!

The James Gettys IS the place to stay. I needed to plan an absolute flawless mother/daughter trip in mid April to celebrate her near 18th birthday and graduation. I researched all my choices from where to go and where to stay. The James Gettys was it. We have never been to a B&B before. We wanted to experience that and... More

Located right in downtown Gettysburg, this is a perfect place to stay for a weekend in Gettysburg. They provide parking directly behind the hotel, so your car is easily accessible, but you rarely need it. Great food, shopping, and lots of the history of Gettysburg are right at your doorstep. Plus, a delicious, simple breakfast in the morning, perfect way... More

Our stay at the James Gettys couldn't have been nicer. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful, the location was ideal (half a block from Lincoln Square, the town "center"), and our suite was comfortable, beautiful, and spotless. It is obvious how much care the staff takes-their attention to detail was remarkable. We were greeted by a plate of some... More
