My review has been a while in coming but here we go...I stayed at the Colton for 12 nights last October and I'm here to tell you that I could find no better value than this well run establishment. I visit Gettysburg every year for the history and the ghosts and have stayed at many hotels around town, all of which were much more expensive than the Colton and couldn't offer the great location that this place can. It is right in the center of everything, you can leave your car in front of your room and walk just about everywhere. The National Cemetery is literally right behind the motel, East Cemetery Hill, Cemetery Ridge, museums, ghost tours, shopping and food are all only a few minutes away on foot. The staff is friendly and make you fell like one of the family, the rooms are neat, clean and good size. This is one of the older motels of the 60s & 70s era and doesn't have a lot of the "frills" offered by the more expensive hotels or motels in town but it does have good WiFi, comfortable rooms, and the staff is top-notch...from management to the front desk to housekeeping they are some of the best I've seen and no hotel staff has ever made me feel more at home than the staff at the Colton! As I mentioned earlier, I travel to Gettysburg every year and have already made reservations at the Colton for my next trip! So if you're looking for a clean, comfortable room, great staff and a location that can't be beat, all for an outstanding price, this is the place for you!
I prefer the rooms in the back, close to the National Cemetery.
