“A very nice place to stay in gettysburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

The hotel is located right on Chambersburg St. and everything in Downtown Gettysburg is jsut a few steps away. The visitors center is only a short drive from the hotel, and parking is free for hotel guests (given that they charge per hour for parking on public roads, that's a huge bonus).
The suite I stayed in was facing the main street but still was quiet and very comfortable. When looking at prices for the hotel keep in mind that they only offer suites.

Thank you for your kind review! I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay! We do our best to keep outside noise to a minimum, so thank you very much for commenting on the peacefulness of your stay! The City Hotel Suite is a lovely room and the additional windows in the bedroom always make it seem so light and airy. I hope you will visit us again!

Sincerely,
Catriona

We spent a wonderful weekend in Gettysburg with 2 other families. We were traveling with 2 children ages 3 & 10. We had the whole 3rd floor to ourselves since there are 3 rooms up there. Each room had its own kitchenette. One room had a very large living area that we were all able to hang out in the evenings while the kids could go to sleep earlier. While it wasn't the most modern facility, it was clean and homey. We are quite picky as to where we lay our heads, but we were extremely pleased with the Gettys. The owners were lovely & the baked goods each day were wonderful. Not only was it nice to hang out as a large family in the evenings instead of retreating back to each room...we saved money by having a kitchen to make lunches and store our snacks & waters.

We enjoyed having your families stay with us! Our innkeepers and housekeepers always strive to keep the hotel as clean and welcoming as we would expect our accommodations to be on our own travels. Thank you for spending your family weekend with us! We hope to see you again!

We went to Gettysburg on a family trip and stayed here. It was a wonderful old hotel within walking distance to restaurants and attractions. The room was delightful for a family of 4. I was expecting a fold out couch and had ordered a rollaway bed too,thankfully. The couch was not a foldout. The kids slept well and it all worked out.

Room Tip: There is no pool at this location.

Thank you for your review! Many of our suites are large enough to accommodate a family of four comfortably with the addition of a rollaway. The Keystone Hotel Suite is the only room with a sofa-bed. We’ve found that regular sofas are far more comfortable than those that contain beds. I’m so glad you enjoyed our hotel and your visit to Gettysburg. For future stays, please ask about the Zeigler-Holtzworth Livery Suite; it has a twin daybed and trundle to accommodate a family of four. Hope to see you again soon!

We recently stayed at the John Gettys and loved it. The room was large and nicely decorated. We felt at home and enjoyed the wonderful home baked goods we received each day for breakfast. Lovely hotel!

We could not have been more pleased with our two night stay at this Hotel. The furnished breakfast was outstanding, the bed comfortable and the staff was helpful. We have recommended this place to friends and would stay there on a return visit.

Room Tip: We stayed in the "City" suite.

The James Gettys Hotel is perfectly located downtown within walking distance of some great attractions. It's also close in proximity to Gettysburg College. The room we stayed in (The Majestic Suite) was well kept and beautiful in decor. We also recieved good customer service from the staff.

We stayed in the Blue Parrot suite for 2 nights and everything was perfect! Spacious, clean, free parking, delicious bakery treats, great walking location for downtown Gettsyburg. No wonder it is rated #1! Stay and enjoy :)
