The room definitely has an early 80's look to it. The bed was clean and comfortable, bathroom was clean. It's a good price compared to the rest of town. Location is directly behind the park, and it's a 2 min walk from many restaurants. It's good for sleep. I was ok with my stay here!

Very comfy and friendly. The room was clean. the staff were very friendly and helpful. if you are looking for a nice place to stay that is close to town or within walking distance this is it. the price is good. the rooms could be updated a bit but they are still nice.

My husband and I have stayed at the Colton Motel a few times now, and we will continue to stay there.!!! The staff has been very nice to us, the rooms are clean, and you can't beat the price.!!! This nice motel is very close to shopping and dinning as well. When calling, please ask for Brenda (mgr.), and she... More

This is hands down the worst establishment we ever were supposed to sleep in. The Motel doesn't look that bad from the outside at all but the inside is probably the worst thing I have ever seen hotelwise. I don't understand the positive reviews for this Motel. Maybe we just had bad luck with our room but considering that there... More

Brenda absolutely takes care of us every time. That's why we come back at least 2 times a year. The update on the pool is awesome. We will keep coming back! Granted the motel definately needs some updates but hopefully the owner will make some updates soon.

I used to live in Gettysburg, and return frequently to visit friends and for business. My last trip I stayed in the Colton Motel. If you are looking for a 4 star luxury hotel, keep looking. If you are looking for a basic place to lay your head, and at a reasonable price for a tourist town, give the Colton... More

Not particularly cheap (about $100 with tax on a busy mid-June weekend), not stylish, and certainly squeaky-clean, but a great location -- walking distance to the memorial in one direction, and just a few steps from the tourist trap that is Historic Downtown Gettysburg in the other -- and lots of insight and local lore from the fellow working overnight...

this motel needs a complete update. furniture was chipped, lamp was missing a light bulb, somewhat dank smell, walls/paint chipped. but was clean, the gentleman that checked us in was very polite and offered to show us the room before we accepted it but it was late so we just took it anyway.

Crackhead fight in room next to me lasted 7 hours. Phoned front desk to complain repeatedly, no answer. Envelope on mouldy fridge asking for tips. Wifi doesn't work. Definitely would advise staying elsewhere. Paint flaking off everywhere in room. Disgusting "stains" on carpet. I considered knocking on neighbours door to ask them to quiet down but when I heard them... More
