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

It was ok, I would not do it again. The location was great, the rooms are small, if you are staying for only a night it would be fine, longer stays I would chose another hotel. People are very nice, they appear not to put anything back into the hotel, very dated.

For starters THIS IS A MOTEL, DONT EXPECT THE FOUR SEASONS! Regardless, this motel is well kept, clean and walking distance from EVERYTHING** , also is... More

The place is not a 5 star location, but if you do not mind a clean place that still has its '50's or 60's features, and at a lower cost, this may be your location. This location has a very nice outdoor pool, and is within walking distance (one or two blocks) of some of the main restaurants and tourist... More

I left a favorable review of the Colton Motel back in June 2011. We stayed for two nights in April 2014 in room 11 and things have went downhill unfortunately. My husband and I are not picky people - we like things cheap, clean and simple. With that being said, the room we had was borderline roach motel. The television... More

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
