The location of the motel is good, some reviewers said it was in walking distance to everything. While it is close to the visitor center for the battlefield, you definately need a car to get the most out of the battlefield since there are over 40 miles of avenues in it. The oldest part of town is also not in... More

We have stayed at the Colton in Gettysburg on our past four visits and intend to return again in 2007. The Colton offers value for the dollar, cleanliness and great hospitality from the Manager, Andrew, to Miss Colleen, the resident dog. We recommend you stay at the Colton.

The manager made our stay in Gettysburg extra special! I forgot to get directions so I called and the manager... More

Stayed at the Colton October 6 and 7, 2006. The manager, Andrew, was very friendly, but that's where the good review ends. The rooms left alot to be desired. The carpeting in the room was not swept...lint and crumbs all over the floor and chairs. The underside of the bedspread was dirty...the bathroom floor was dirty. We had tiny brown... More

Booked at the last minute through Travelocity. Luckily the onsite manager was there or else he would not have gotten the reservation until the next day. Manager was very friendly and had many good tips on sight seeing. Room was clean, but as older hotels go, it wasn't the best. Price was reasonable. Plan on staying here in the when... More

Our Manager Andrew did a wonderful job of directing us to various resturants and attractions. We also had some car problems and he helped us locate the nearest service station as well as a reasonable one. We wished to say Thank You Andrew for a wonderful job. Pat and Jim
