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.

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
