We stayed for three nights last week and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is spotless and the baked goods every day were delicious. We stayed in the Lord Nelson suite which was very quiet. The hotel is in a great location because we were able to walk all over town despite the rainy weather. We will definitely be back!

Just last month (September 2011) marked my 7th stay at the James Gettys. I usually travel down form Long Island, NY to attend the Annual Civil War Ball the end of January every year. Staring in 2009. I commenced returing in Setpember for the wonderful tours, the new Cyclorama at the Battiefield Tourism Cener and of course the ghost stores,... More

We were traveling west in Pennsylvania and due to a miscommunication with my spouse, shocking though it may sound, we didn't have a room for the first leg of the trip. At 4:30 PM I telephoned the James Gettys Hotel as this was a great point in the trip to stop. Katrina was very accomodating and we were able to... More

Just stayed weekend of 9/9/11 to 9/11/11 with my sister. We had a "girls" mini vacation which included working with Mark Nesbitt (author of the book series "Ghosts of Gettysburg") and his team. We arrived Friday afternoon and checked into our room. We stayed in the Lord Nelson's Suite which was very clean and spacious. We had a very nice... More

We stay here every year for a weekend in August. We both love it! It's in the center of Gettysburg. An easy walk to all the quaint shops and restaurants. The staff is excellent and the rooms are immaculate!

Wanted to do a Gettysburg trip for a while. I'm really interested in history. I stayed in the Blue Parrot Tearoom suite. Upon arrival I was greeted with fresh muffins and breads on the table in the kitchenette. It was like staying in some ones home, but in a good way. The furniture and bed was comfortable and the room... More

This was our third stay at this hotel. Wouldn't think of staying anywhere else in Gettysburg as this is the top of the line when it comes to lodging. We stayed in the Blue Parrot suite for three nights. What a fabulous room. The delicious home made pastries, the evening treats and the turndown service makes you feel special. Cleanliness,... More

We had a great stay at the James Getty Hotel. Not your typical Bed and breakfast. Had a kitchen with full size refrigerator - m/w - stove top. Living room and bedroom. Lots of room.

Arrived to a prompt reception by Katrina who couldn't have been more accommodating. Spent 3 nights and each day was a fun adventure. Good food, very clean and spacious suite (Indian King Inn Suite), perfect location (just off town square), private/free parking, and don't forget to visit Lord Nelson's Gallery. BTW the Segway tour of the Battlefield was awesome. I... More
