We called, last minute for a room for two nights. Richard at the desk was so helpful, left a key for us as we arrived around 5am. Room was very large with 3 beds for a very reasonable price. Walking distance to all attractions. Across the street from the battlefield. Can leave your car and just walk everywhere, to historic... More

We stayed at the Colton for two nights. Great location. Great price. Planning on returning in April until I got the credit card bill and saw that we were charged for 3 nights. After calling several times and being promised a call back, which never happened. I finally got in touch with someone but then was told to call back... More

Came in on the afternoon before the 150th Gettysburg Address Dedication and didn't have reservations anywhere. Other hotels were pretty well booked so I took a chance on this one. Only needed a place to sleep, figured on taking in the festivities on the Eve Before and the Morning of the GA150th Dedication Day. Wonderful location! Walk to anything! Great... More

This is the perfect place to stay in Gettysburg if you do not want to spend a lot on a room and don't need all the amenities. I almost always stay here and use the money I save to spend in town during my visit. It's nothing fancy but if you spend most of your time in town or on... More

The manager tells you one thing, but when you are there something else comes up.She makes promises she won't keep and disapoints you. The rooms are in need of repairs.The pool looked like you could walk across it.

I actually booked at the Colton but since they were full when I got to the motel, they sent me to their "sister" motel, The Budget Motel, just down the street. These people are truly kind and concerned that their customers are taken care of and happy! Older motel, but spik and span clean, very comfy bed, and all amenities... More

I stayed at the Colton Motel in Gettysburg with friends over the Labor Day weekend. The Colton is not modern and fancy, but it is extremely reasonably priced, and the location cannot be beat! We enjoyed the outdoor pool and the complimentary pastries and coffee in the morning. The staff was hospitable and made us feel like family. If you... More
