We ended up in this motel because a different motel in town lost our reservation, so high marks for the Colton for being available and taking us on short notice. This is a cheap, basic motel. It is has very basic amenities inside and the look is somewhat dated. But it was relatively clean and convenient to the Gettysburg Battlefield... More

Great location, very basic/old...but sufficient for time spent in room. Nice to save some money since we were in hotels for 2 weeks. Door was sticky and curtains need replacing (worn w/ holes). Eat at nearby dobbins tavern for French onion soup!

Had read reviews on here so we were looking for Colton's. We were just here for one night and didn't want to spend $$$$ for a nights stay. We weren't in room much. The room was nice and clean. Everyone working spoke to us and they were very friendly. Pool was clean, of course we didn't have time to swim.... More

I love staying at these mom & POP motels. The place was neat and check in was smooth. The desk clerks were so friendly and helpful. They had all the info and answered all our guestions about the area. The room was clean and neat. It could be described as "retro" but every thing worked. It is not a chain... More

It was a Motel. Very old but clean. Good walking location near most things. Continental breakfast is a donut and weak coffee, if your lucky. Our room wasn't cleaned on second day and the wifi was in acessable.

My husband and I stayed at the Colton for the first time for two nights, Thur and Fri of Memorial Day weekend. Although we were a very late checkin on Thur eve, we were greeted warmly by Rich, who was very nice and helpful as he was described in several other reviews. The room was clean, bedroom had the essentials...clean... More

First thing--this is a motel, and it looks dated. Manager was pleasant, the room was clean, but the TV was old and the free WiFI was intermittent. However, the location is very convenient, the price is much less than most other lodging options for Gettysburg, and it is in easy walking distance to lots of attractions (battlefield, downtown, etc.). But... More

My wife and I come to Gettysburg almost every month for long weekends. We never stayed here before and figured we could give it A try. For the average joe trying to come to Gettysburg and just needing A place to sleep give the Colton A try. Average size room and can tell it hasn't been remodeled in years but... More

We stayed at the Colton motel for one night in may 2014. The people were nice and the rate we paid (61.00) was reasonable considering how close the hotel was to all of the Gettysburg attractions. I did have two complaints with the motel. The first was the wifi. We have multiple devices (Microsoft surface, iPod, etc.) and we able... More
