“Home away from home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

My husband and I stayed here for the second time and it excellent value for the money. We booked directly through Magnusun hotels with the CAA/AAA rate of only $58.50.
The Colton's manager Brenda is simply one of the friendliest, helpful and nicest people you could want. The rooms are fine...clean and the beds comfortable. Everything is adequate. We just stepped out the door and everything is within walking distance.
We stayed in room 27 and it was super quiet.
As another reviewer mentioned, the Colton it is not the Ritz but the people that run the place have a heart of gold and that's what it's all about.
This is probably the best value in all of central Gettysburg!
Get ready Brenda, we will be back for sure!!

Room Tip: The back rooms next to the cemetery are the best.

We stayed from 4/19-4/22. We stayed in Rm.28 The price is very good for the location we do living histories @ the wax museum,Melody The House Keeper and the front office staff are great.Several restaurants are in walking distance as is the angle,Longstreets assault on Cemetery ridge aka The Pickett Pettigrew charge.Rm 28 seems to have several visitors who don't checkout one being Jacob a Union Soldier from NY,who is buried in The National Cemetery.

We have been going to Gettysburg for over 20 years. We have stayed at the Colton for the past 15. Granted its not the ritz but if you want a clean room, great location and and outstanding general manager Brenda and her staff are top notch!! They are all about hospitality!! Can't wait to return at the end of June and spend another great weekend at the Colton in Gettysburg!!

Once again,for pure value and location,the colton was awesome! If your looking for vegas style hotels,this isn' t it,but for a decent place to stay in a great area and good price,the colton can' t be beat! Will be back again next year!

Very accomodating staff! Could not ask for a better location, stayed in room 12. Nothing fancy, great for the price! Only drawback-no hairdryer:(
Highly reccomend, already planning on going back! Tommy's Pizza was excellent, great food and service!

I had the motel recommended by a friend at home in Maine...when I arrived it had just begun to rain...Brenda greeted me as I drove my motorcycle into the parking lot,she directed me to park it on the enclosed walkway in front of my room!! It is not the Hilton,but very clean,centrally located, and she tries to make folks feel at home!
