Nice pool area, rooms very clean and the lady that check us in was so nice and helpful!!! Most likely heading back to Gettysburg in the next few weeks and definetly...

You can sleep on the battlefield!! This is very basic motel but a a very reasonable price. It is ideally located on the "strip" with lots of shops, museums and restaurants in easy walking distance. Features a pool, some pre-packaged pastries and coffee for breakfast and door front parking. I have stayed here several times and keep coming back. If...

I stayed for one night last week. The pool opens at check out out time (11:00) which I thought was lame, so no option for a morning swim before leaving. The motel is in a quiet section of Gettysburg, at the end of a nice round trip walk to town. There are many things within walking distance, especially the cemetery...

I wanted to like this room because it wasn't a chain, but there were too many problems. First, the room is old and not very well maintained. Although the manager tried hard, the WIFI didn't work, and the TV had terrible color, i.e., skin tones were green. (Normally I wouldn't care but we wanted to watch the democratic convention.) Worst...

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...

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...
