This was the highest rated hotel in Gettysburg so we had high expectations as wel always do with highly rated properties on Trip Advisor. The hotel says it is a Bed and Breakfast and their website discusses the unique decorations in each room. We imagined when we arrived in the room we would be turning back the page in time... More

Hello and thank you for your review. I am sorry that you feel you were mislead and believed you were coming to a bed and breakfast. We are listed as a hotel on Trip Advisor because we are not a bed and breakfast. Our advertising clearly states that we are a cross between a B&B and a boutique hotel. In... More

My family of 4 stayed at the hotel for a long weekend. The hotel is nicely located in central Gettysburg and we loved the fact that it was in town and offered us the convenience of walking around town in the evenings for dinner, ice cream, etc.. The suite was very spacious and offered comfort to relax at the day's... More

We stayed in the Majestic Suite, and we were very impressed with the spacious and beautiful accomodations, including a fireplace in the bedroom and a jacuzzi bathtub as well as a large shower. The staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful, and we enjoyed the breakfast and treats delivered to our room. The location made it very easy for... More

My husband and I stayed at the James Getty last weekend. It was very comfortable and clean. I liked that the room was actually a mini suite, with kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedroom. Even though it was in the heart of town, it was quiet. Every day there was a treat (chocolates, cookies) and breakfast( muffins and breads). The... More

I am so glad to hear that you had a great time. We have had many families stay with us over the last 16 years who love the hotel. It is small and quaint - many guests leave their rooms open and go from room to room to visit. That is a home like quality and we have been a... More

Our family stayed in three different rooms on three different floors. All the rooms were equally comfortable, clean, and well equipped. The breakfast baskets were so good and the evening baskets were even better. The ladies at the hotel could not have been nicer. We will stay here every time we return to Gettysburg.

We reserved a room at the James Gettys Hotel after reading great reviews online.Not knowing what to expect in a pre-civil war buiding in the heart of an old town, we were a little hesitant as to what it would really be like.It was FABULOUS! Beautifully maintained with all the modern conveniences of home right down to wireless internet and... More

Everything in the Ziegler Holtzworth Livery Suite was lovely, comfortable & clean. My husband and I brought along our two granddaughters & this was the perfect suite. We all loved the delicious treats - cookies, fudge nut bread, cherry muffins, etc. you sure do know how to spoil your guests! Thanks for an enjoyable stay. Barb & Ron

It was so nice having you stay with us this summer with your granddaughters. I was also really happy that you took us up on the offer to have the extra space of the second room. It was our pleasure to give back to you for your business. Enjoy the rest of the year. Sincerely, Stephanie More

Don't bother to look any further for a place to stay in the Gettysburg area. Even if you can find a lower price somewhere else, it's not worth the search. You'll have a great kitchen (really!!!), a wonderful living room area, and even though it's on the main drag (Route 30), it's surprisingly quiet. You'll save money eating in-room rather... More

We have stayed at the James Gettys a number of times. It is one of the best suite establishments in Gettysburg. If you are looking for somewhere right downtown with all the nice touches then this is the place to stay.
