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

Upon entering our room at the Colton Motel my husband's first comment was, "We need to start spending a little more money on our rooms." The furniture in the room was old and very beat-up looking. The TV was also very dated. The AC/heating unit looked bent and sad. The room certainly could use some care. However, we didn't feel... More

Stayed at this motel just a week ago. It is definitely outdated and needs some updates but the people & the location are amazing! It is reasonably priced and their are no frills but it is clean & comfortable. I go to Gettysburg a lot & can see myself staying there again when money is tight. I can't emphasize enough... More

Well hotels in Gettysburg are pricey, so if you want to save on a hotel, this could be an option. It is old, needs repair and renovation. It is in a great location within walking distance of attractions and restaurants. There is an old TV, air, retro bath and a fridge, so it's comfortable, but not sleek.The WIFI never worked... More

The rooms were decent and the price is great, BUT, both rooms used by our group had odor issues. Even though our room was nonsmoking, there was a faint odor of tobacco smoke. Not enough to really bother us, but perhaps someone with asthma would have a problem. The BIG issue was that both bathrooms smelled of urine. Obviously the... More

The room was very clean, and close to everything. I love waking up early to a continental breakfast which I read this motel had. Waited till 8:10 am and nothing as of yet, got tied of wasting my day waiting. Come to find out all you get was a donut anyway. Not much of a continental breakfast to me. The... More

Basic older motel, but has pool and internet worked perfectly. Clean and can't beat the location. Very pleasant and helpful desk staff. Also, I prefer independent motels to the cheap chains - much nicer budget experience and the Colton fits the bill.

The Colten is a quaint older motel. The room and bathroom were clean, the beds were comfortable. A small refrigerator was provided. There is a pool. Coffee available @ the office. The staff was wonderful! It is conveniently located, across from the cemetaries and within walking distance of attractions, shopping and downtown. Reasonable priced and would stay again.
