For the price and location, we couldn't ask for much more. If you are used to nice hotels, you will be disappointed with this motel. But if you're looking for something cheap and close to town, this will work out great. The staff is very friendly. The downside, the pillows are so flat they are almost non-existent. I had to...

Terrible motel. Our room was non smoking but was yellow with nicotine and smelled like cigarette smoke. Bathtub had a hole in it. Carpet was very dirty. Was in good location to see battlefields and for walking around town.

No frills here... We were looking for a clean and affordable hotel on our drive home. Dated, but clean. Everything works. Beds are comfortable. Walking distance from several really good restaurants. The best part is the price: around $60 for the night in a tourist trap. The staff is friendly, and it's quiet. No question, I'd recommend this place!

If I had wanted to spend 50 bucks I would have chosen a chain hotel. I thought getting a local room would be better but boy was I wrong. There is no breakfast... They will offer to make you a cup of coffee. There are huge tube TVs and the AC sounds like an airplane hovering above your bed. There... More

I stayed at the Colton with my 2 granddaughters. We usually stay at Days Inns, but the one in Gettysburg had no rooms. When we got to the Colton, we were given a large room and warmly welcomed to the area. The room was very clean and the 4 staff members we met were friendly and helpful. The motel is... More

We arrived at the Colton Motel at about 1:00pm to check into our "reserved" room only to be told they were full and had no room available for us. I don't understand how that's possible when we had a confirmed reservation??? The man told us that his "buddy" had a room available for us at The Western Inn, (not Best... More
